Venezuela crisis: Where families buy rotten meat to eat - BBC News

  • Опубликовано: 16 окт 2018
  • Millions of Venezuelans have left the country in the last two years, fleeing the oil-rich nation’s economic collapse.
    Shortages of food and basic goods, years of recession, soaring inflation and regular power shortages have left the country almost on its knees.
    The government says those against the socialist President Nicolas Maduro are waging an "economic war" - but many within and outside the country blame his policies, combined with corruption and mismanagement.
    One of the most affected areas is the state of Zulia, long known as the centre of the country's oil industry.
    The BBC’s Vladimir Hernandez is one of the few international journalists who has been able to report from the state.

    Produced by Herminia Fernandez, filmed by Omar Garcia.
    Edited by Kelvin Brown.

      Considering the fact that you seem illiterate ("Liston", maybe you mean "listen",,, or is that "Lipton" as in tea?). I really doubt that you are capable of doing what I have just done. I did a quick search for criticism of BBC's coverage of Venezuela. It was not long before I actually found the research that I had mentioned above,,, not to mention plenty of other mentions of their lack of dishonesty in regards to Venezuela. Anyway, the real question is why anyone would believe anything that BBC says (or CNN, Reuters, Bloomberg,,,,,). They have a proven track record of spewing propaganda and anyone with a brain knows it, unlike you. Or are you just a shill punk?

    There are no good or evil political systems. The evil stems from the greed and vanity of the 'humans' who run that system. I wont even bother calling them leaders... they do more self-enrichment than lead.

    It amazes me how so many people comment on how Venezuelas economic problems are due to Chavez and Maduro and the socialist party, why doesn't anyone look at the fact that the U.S has put sanctions on this country and it's because of the U.S this oil rich country can't sell it's oil to anybody. These bloody yanks still hurting their oil cartels got ousted by Chavez and now Maduro. People need to wake up to who's causing the sufferings of Venezuela. Take a way the sanctions from this country and watch it flourish, it will flourish so much so that Saudi Arabia will look like peasants next them. If the yanks put the same sanctions on Saudi Arabia, do you think these pricks would have tens of thousands of mega rich princes, hell no, everyone would be in poverty. Capitalism is what creates a minority of greedy rich people and leaves the majority of the population thinking they're rich through hundreds of thousand of dollars of debt to bank cartels. You look at any western country who boasts they are a democratic nation when in fact there's no democracy at all, in fact all western countries are nations of capitalism. Everyone's are up to their ears in debt and work their asses off to make ends meet while driving the latest car which is on finance and living in overpriced houses which are also morgaged through fractional reserve lending designed for you to never pay off that house and just keep paying interest upon interest. The fabric of society is decaying due to parents working so many hours they have no time to spend with their children and these children end up finding solace in gangs and drugs and alcohol. Our so called democratic countries keep taxing and taxing us until we bleed. In Australia we pay almost 30 cents to every dollar we earn to the government and see nothing in return, when they build new highways, they use overseas corporations to build these highways and then we have to pay a toll to use the bloody highways. Our public schools get little to no funding and our hospitals are getting worse every year. The one thing we still have is public medicare for free, but how long that's gonna last only God know as the Liberal pricks want to take that away from us too and make it like the U.S. It's sad to see the Venezuelan people suffer so much cause of these sanctions, one day everyone around the globe will wake up and see what the U.S is doing to countries around the world just so they can keep their piece of shit dollar strong..

China’s even worse than what you see here. Russia is only doing kinda good because the have some leadership that’s kinda honest but that all could change rather quickly if some truly evil people sneak back into leadership. Socialism is famous for rewardingly giving more to the truly evil ones.

    "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written: 'He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.' Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God." (2 Cor 9:6-11)
