Of course it's not just about oil. It's a proxy struggle between Russia and the US.
If the reports of Russian mercenaries in Venezuela to protect Maduro are to be believed, it lends weight to his claim that there might be a civil war. Just like Russia protected Assad, he’ll likely survive. Thing is, the US has changed the way it wages war….armies for hire….that are trained and ‘backed’ to do the destabilization (think ISIS or FSA), with a handful of troops deployed to support the rebels. If this is what has been planned, reports of these militias will eventually trickle out. In the end, everyone loses whether s/he support Guaido or Maduro, when the country disintergrates.
No one, except the architects of the war, could have anticipated heroin from Afghan poppy fields flooding the world. This Venezuela situation seems so sudden, we don’t really know what the future promises or what it might trigger. Just my two cents….
