No pity : it's their own fault,they voted Maduro in .

What's happening in Venezuela is a warning for the others (Corbyn, Sanders,...)

I like the article's last line...

Is it sad that Vietnam isn't that bad? Do you have something against the Vietnamese?

Not at all. My wife is Vietnamese and we go there once a year to see the family. Unfortunately the country is still largely communist-poor and oppressed.

This brought to mind the fish poisoning they had to endure about a year ago and how bad it was for the masses. The guvmint tried to cover it up and then had a media blackout about it during the protests that followed although they couldn't control what went out on Facebook.

This is after the guvmint there ordered the slaughter of all domestic fowl years ago due to the bird flu from China. Couldn't get chicken anywhere for a long time.

Not meaning to hijack this thread and/or change the subject, but something was on Fox News today from the State Dept. about something happening to State Dept. employees in Cuba. Does anyone have any more information on this?

Cannot help but wonder if it's because of something we (the USA) said in the media about Venezuela ... (???)

Acoustic attack. It drives you crazy and degrades your health. Several had to sent back to the US for treatment, one is said to suffer permanent hearing loss. Cuba denies knowledge and participation.

Interesting. Never heard of it. I wonder how it was done; a big blast of noise?

I guess Cuba would be stupid enough to try this then try to deny it. Never heard of it happening anywhere else.

Thanks for the information.

From what I gather, ultrasound. Very high pitch frequencies that normal people can't hear. Sort of like a dog whistle, ultrasound treatment for muscle therapy, or that dental tool that scrapes of plaque.
