So, wise guy, what has non-interference gotten us, and what has it gotten for the people of Venezuela?

I don’t see the point of the US spending time and money to try and promote democracy at great expense to an ungrateful world.

I’m not talking about direct interference, but a diplomatic strategy aimed at restoring the rule of law in Venezuela. That means, objective and impartial law; not executive-dominated “legal tribunals” like Chavez is about to implement.
As long as a tyranny is elected into power, you seem to be fine with it. I’m not. Tyranny is tyranny, even if the majority supports it. (By the Greek standard - especially if the majority supports it.)

I’m worried about communist dictatorships having nuclear weapons aimed at major US cities and crazy, oil-rich Arab theocrats financing the next 9/11.
I am not worried about some retard wanna-be Castro with Tourette’s shaking hands with Obama.

Are my priorities wrong?
