BBC wrote:Venezuela election: Maduro expels top US diplomat

Mr Maduro announced the expulsion of charge d'affaires Todd Robinson as his victory in Sunday's vote was being proclaimed officially.

He accused Mr Robinson of conspiring against his socialist government.
[…]
Fourteen countries including Argentina, Brazil and Canada recalled their ambassadors from Caracas in protest.

The US has not had a serving ambassador in Venezuela for eight years and Mr Robinson is its most senior representative.
[…]
The Venezuelan president ordered Mr Todd and his deputy head of mission, Brian Naranjo, to leave Venezuela within 48 hours.

Speaking at an event at the election board, he promised to present evidence that the US embassy had been engaged in a military, economic and political conspiracy.

He was, he said, defending the "dignity of the Venezuelan homeland".
[…]
Even before the election took place, the US, Canada, the EU and a dozen Latin American countries said they would not recognise the results.

Now Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Panama and Peru are among those scaling back their diplomatic relations with Caracas.

However, Russia, El Salvador, Cuba and China congratulated President Maduro on his election win.

The headlines pretty much say it all...

Is polio re-emerging in Venezuela nearly 30 years after eradication?
If polio is confirmed, Venezuela will be seeing its first case of polio in 29 years
:o



Venezuela oil upgraders halting operations amid export crisis: sources
...
Venezuela’s problems exporting oil this month led PDVSA to notify customers it would begin sea-borne transfers in an attempt to ease a bottleneck at its ports, where more than 70 vessels are waiting to load about 23 million barrels of oil.

PDVSA also told clients they could not send new tankers until the ships waiting to load were serviced.
I can only imagine the crew is having one hell of an extended shore leave.
:wink:


Venezuela Won’t Have Enough Oil To Export By 2019
...
Crude oil production in Venezuela is practically falling at an average of 10% every quarter and has been since mid-2017.

Yes a success, a flaming success...
Then Skank Of America could start in...
