Not The Dumbest Idea They’ve Had

Venezuela responds to US moves to deal with the unraveling of Venezuelan economic life:

“The ‘contact group’ you’re proposing is completely useless and unnecessary,” Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez fumed at a meeting of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Cancun, Mexico.

“The only way you could impose it would be to send in your Marines — who would meet with a crushing response from Venezuela if they dared make such a misstep.”

Getting conquered may be the only way to save Venezuela.

  1. The heady days of 2009 when Obama traveled to “The Summit of the Americas.”
    Chavez handed his Marxist manifesto to a beaming Obama and we all swooned because “we are the people we’ve been waiting for.”

    Remember when Hugo Chavez and the Honorable Joseph P. Kennedy II attempted to funnel “free” Venezuelan oil to heat the homes of the freezing people of Massachusetts?

    Can’t we return the favor? Obama is getting sixty million to have his name and face placed on a book. Can’t he wangle another ten million to have a chapter written by a fracking expert. Obama could attend a global-warming conference held in Caracas and place his book into the hands of a beaming Maduro?

  2. Yes, having to support another whole country would be a “crushing response”.

  3. Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez must be smoking crack, channeling Bagdad Bob, or both. The US has at the very least a 10 fold military superiority in every measureable category.

  4. But more importantly, other then a handful of zealots, I expect vast majority of the population and army will welcome their new overlords. But only if they will allow them to tar and feather miserable wretches that brought them to this end.

  5. The Marines could just fire rolls of toilet paper over the Venezuelan army and they would abandon their positions to go shag them.

  6. It is a sign of national political immaturity when you blame your nation’s failures on “foreign meddling.” Just sayin’.

  7. Per Swiftee’s point, remember how Charlton Heston conquers Valencia in “El Cid”? He used his catapults to throw bread over the walls, at which point the army defending the walls turns on the Berber invaders and opens the gates.

  8. If we want to conquer some place, why not Cuba? We already own part of the island, consider it a hostile takeover of the remainder. Auction off the beaches to resort condos. Buy up all the vintage autos. Re-open the rum and cigar factories. Preserve the old Commie headquarters for Liberal college professors to bring students on pilgrimages. The Cuban people’s lives would improve immeasurably and we’d have more nice places to vacation.

  9. Yeah Joe, but then where would reprobate Democrat politicians go on trade and cultural enrichment junkets? N Korea doesn’t have any four star hotels, so it’s out.
