    @2,3,4 & 5

    It's so funny, I had the same thought when I read “full paralysis”. Of course, it's difficult to tell the difference between being dead, or in a coma.

    Agreed. If a country has true principles, and is not controlled by the prevailing political winds, you have to show some REAL CREDIBILITY and acknowledge the non-democratic situation in Venezuela for what it is. You don't need to grandstand, just be upfront about what it is... and don't be afraid to call out the truth.

    Best wishes to all.
