    I agree with the ex-bus driver... Who needs additional friends when you have Cuba to back you up...

    Those conspiratorialist fascist Dollar loving imperialist bourgeois puppets, how dare they. Yes cut diplomatic relations, but continue to use their many conveniently located money laundering facilities.

    So, I guess no Venezuelan materials go through the Canal then.
    India and China products via The Horn, from now on!
    US now fracks its own; VE will be relying on Mercosur and Cuba.
    Poor people.

    Surely the headline should read:

    Mad Burro cuts off nose to spite face


    Bus driver runs over own foot.

    But he LOOKS fierce, doesn’t he?

    What a pity he is a lily-livered moron backed up by a large number of the same.

    He does however have charge of the country. Dear me.

    “”Nobody will conspire with impunity to ask for an intervention against our fatherland. Enough!” Maduro thundered as presidents Raul Castro of Cuba, Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua, Evo Morales of Bolivia and Argentina's Vice-president Amado Boudou looked on.“”
    Well, well, well, whata macho-man !!! ...“against our Fatherland” ??? who does he think he is ? Hitler ??
    @4 GeoffWard2's observation about the Panama Canal is very relevant...oceanfreight and transit-times to VZ will double if Panama decides to deny passage to ships destined to VZ . How long will it take for MADuro to realize he's crapped himself ??

    In an interview with CNN Maduro has said he wants to improve the relationship with the US. Interesting.

    Unfortunately for Maduro the words 'Arse' & 'Elbow' constitute an Advanced Level exam question. .. has a good article on this. Elsewhere I have headlines such as
    'Maduro eats hat - Panama doesn't' etc.

    All this ranting just makes him look weaker, especially considering the bunch of nobodies who turned up for the ceremony. Where are all those powerful and influential people now?
    Too scared to fly in to Maquietia?
    Too embarrassed to be associated with a dictatorship?
