Declared a national security threat by United States[edit]

Surely this is worth noting?

It's also worth noting that a nation being declared a national security threat is apparently, for whatever reason, a required first step before the US can impose sanctions on that nation or its leaders/officials, so whether it's genuinely considered a security threat is not very clearcut. But yeah, this certainly seems noteworthy, so feel free to add it to the article. 141.134.75.236 (talk) 21:40, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
I would say it's because the smaller stick of a coup failed so now the US is tossing all subtlety out the window and marching wholesale into the realm of absurdity. 24.20.65.149 (talk) 21:57, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Entire page of lies[edit]

This whole page is just imperialist fascist propaganda, come the fuck on — Unsigned, by: 2601:4C3:4000:6191:415C:6D01:18C9:931 / talk

Next time Mikemikev comes by calling us "Jewish Marxists" can you do us a favor and remind him that we're actually fascist imperialists? Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 13:00, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Should we have a section on the presidential crisis?[edit]

We should add at least a brief mention of the ongoing crisis over whether Nicolas Maduro or Juan Guaido is President of Venezuela. Given that the situation involves censorship and human rights abuses, and of course, a generous heaping of bullshit rhetoric from both sides, it'd definitely be worth covering
