US is ordering non-essential personnel and families out of Venezuela embassy

Quote:
CARACAS- The U.S. government ordered family members of employees at its embassy in Venezuela to leave on Thursday as a political crisis deepened ahead of a controversial vote critics contend will end democracy in the oil-rich country.

It's sounding like Venezuela will be truly become another worker's paradise, just like Cuba and N. Korea...

Venezuela had been on that road for some time, beginning with the Chavez regime.

another nail in the coffin
should've done that long ago
..we had a USMC unit called UNITAS that would go down to South America every year
..Venezuela was one of the stops
..we would go on port calls and train with the Venezuelans ....I'm guessing they stopped those ....that's a lot of $$$ Venezuela loses

One can only hope that intelligent people in the US (but not on Capitol Hill ) will do what they can to prevent the collaps of the Venezuelan workers paradise: if it disappears, millions will leave Venezuela for ....the US to live there at the costs of the American taxpayer and UNO will start an aid program and demand that the US will pay it .

OK but what does it really have to do with the arrest and article?

because of your prejudice of me and my posts/etc, you either must have deduced wrongly --or you can't deduce at all--my meaning
I say this because of your numerous 'similar' responses to my posts

maybe you haven't, but I have seen many movies where a major scene is shot in a crime ridden--run down apartments/etc and-or where third world authorities plant evidence/unjustifiably arrest people/those people are are held and/or tortured without due process/etc

the quote comes right after the word ''movie''--therefore relating to it

the first and foremost would be Midnight Express where Hayes is trying to escape by running through the run down apartments at the 1:45 mark
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zP-4EH45TxA

the beginning of Salvador with James Woods

many movies have New York or Chicago with run down and crime ridden apartments

I just saw the horrible movie Let's Get Larry, and I thought I remember that has similar characteristics
Larry is detained unjustifiably --just like Holt

shithole apartment/etc around the 30 minute mark
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoCBM3Qlqg0

shithole/crime-ridden/corruption/etc --common in many of these type movies
