    Maduro will end up in Cuba, with a select group of other corrupt individuals. You know, take the money and run.

    When he does, you can anticipate a grand speech where he blames the US and the immoral, evil capitalists around the world that conspired with some rich Venezuelans to stop the Bolivarian Revolution... and grab their oil.

    Next he will announce how he will return to Venezuela one day, and that he, along with the true Chavez revolutionaries, will retake the country... “for the people”.

    It all seems so predictable, you could write the speech today. It's just a question of timing.

    Best wishes everyone!
