Citizens of Venezuela are rioting against the communist regime that Castro helped to install. The late dictator Hugo Chavez was trained in Cuba. After Chavez was elected he followed Castro’s instructions. Castro provided him with military, security personal and organized the repressive apparatus to initiate the war against the people. This is a common denominator in all communist regimes. Castro has been calling the shots in Venezuela since 1999. After Chavez’s death, the appointed “elected” president Maduro is a Castro puppet, just as Chavez was. The Venezuelans have been forced to live under a tyrannical rule similar to what Cubans have been enduring for 55 years with no end in sight. Like Cuba, for all but the ruling elite, Venezuela has been fundamentally transformed into a third world country, despite the fact that it is oil rich.
