Venezuela is blocking US aid, possibly because it suspects it to be a 
Trojan horse, which it frequently is.

The media are accurately reporting that the government of a starving 
country is blocking aid for its starving people.

If anything, the media are displaying a pro Venezuela bias in neglecting 
to report that the Venezuelan government is sitting on a lake of oil, 
which it lacks the competence to pump, and a mountain of gold, that it 
lacks the competence to mine.

I hope that the purpose of this intervention is get the oil pumped and 
the gold mined, rather than install democracy, because past efforts to 
install democracy have been disastrous, with the voters of each newly 
created democracy voting to destroy the economy and make war on their 
neighbors and each other.  The place would obviously be much better off 
as a division of ExxonMobile.

Venezuela is starving because they democratically voted to loot the 
bakeries, and if democracy is reinstalled, probably will vote for the 
same thing again.
