    Of course, there's a rational solution, and the only solution. Overthrow the corrupt, socialist regime that's destroyed Venezuela's freedom and prosperity -- nothing can be improved as long as these thieves and idiots are in control.

    Argentina will return Patagonia in the next 25 years.

    North Korea is still miles ahead in the crazy stakes. See this fake propaganda video: ;)

    Maduro needs to jump before he's pushed, and more importantly before he destroys his country even more, but if the dead protesters don't bother him, and he didn't listen to Mercosur or the OAS or the UN, who is he going to listen to? He even attacked Uruguay which was one of the few countries still supporting him.
