Violent clashes break out on Venezuela’s border with Brazil

Two people were reported killed on Saturday in the Venezuelan town of Santa Elena de Uairen in clashes with security forces over the opposition’s plan to bring in aid from nearby Brazil. This occurred as dozens of Venezuelans who had come to the Brazilian border city of Pacaraima began throwing rocks across the border at Venezuelan troops, who responded with tear gas and buckshot.

A master class in stupidly doubling down because FU. And yet most of the people (Mexican here) still thinks Americans are somehow responsible.

The Red Cross does not consider this aid, why does MSM keep reporting it as aid? The USA launched sanctions and caused economic turmoil that did far more damage than the scraps of so called "aid" will alleviate. This is just an excuse to get in troops and control the narrative as they have been doing. Protests of equal size pro and anti gov, West covers Anti only and claims everyone against Maduro, Anti Gov protesters cause massive damage and kill people, not covered in west, Military supports Maduro so west calls one guy with zero troops defecting that Military is not supporting Maduro, etc. etc. Just do minimal googling and find out whats going on for yourselves people....

Freezing billions and putting sanctions on the country. Then offer aid? They are oil rich and have money they don't need aid. maybe America needs a way to arm their rebels with hidden arms amongst that aid.

The American executive branch has been messing with Venezuela since the Bush administration. In the American Revolutionary War, a chunk of the British population supported the revolt because they knew what their King George was doing to the colonies with his taxes. Same thing applies here. A large percentage of Americans aren't stupid, we know the history of our relations with Venezuela, as well as nearly every country we've ever been involved in.

Damn, lots of socialists clinging to their death cult in this thread. The memoryhole might get overloaded with all the revisionist history in here.

Venezuelans supported (the vast majority) Hugo Chávez; Maduro Is the consequence of Chavez's idiotic policies... Let them deal with the consequences of their own actions.
