And Back in the Axis of El Vil

And let's not forget our southern problem where socialism has screwed up a wet oil dream:

Venezuela on Thursday demanded that Washington identify the agents involved in an alleged case of "outrageous" US spying against the state-run oil giant PDVSA.

The request and a formal diplomatic protest note came a day after the Telesur TV network published documents leaked by former US analyst Edward Snowden stating that the National Security Agency spied on the electronic data at Petroleos de Venezuela, including personnel files and the email of Rafael Ramirez, who headed the oil giant from 2004 to 2014.

Heck, I'd be curious to figure out how an oil-rich country screwed things up so massively despite the cheerleading from Hollywood fanboys.

American-Venezuelan relations have proved shockingly immune to the soothing balms of hope and change.

UPDATE: Is Maduro and his Hugo-Chavez-designed regime doomed, even with his blatant rigging of the December 6th election?
