    Where the hell is America? And where the hell are the arms, the RPG's to take out these vechicles, light arms, machine guns, some air support anything, everything. Is Trump asleep at the switch?

    Trump is very limited in what he can do with both parties in the Congress against him. It's likely he will provide arms and supplies to Guaido's people if things turn violent -- but first they must be in control of some area that aid can be delivered to. At present, there is no place they control.

    It's best the USA does not do any more measures because it will only harm the people. A complete economic and trade blockade is about as far as they can expect. It's up to the Venezuela military to allow the transfer of power.

    Thanks for being the voice of reason, Chicureo. A civil war in Venezuela is only going to harm a lot of people who are already suffering.
