The Guardian reports:
Venezuela’s president, Nicolás Maduro, has survived an apparent assassination attempt after what officials described as drones armed with explosives detonated overhead during a speech he was making at a military event. The drones, according to officials, were flown towards Maduro as he addressed soldiers in Caracas on Saturday.
Mid-speech, Maduro and his wife, Cilia Flores, looked up at the sky and winced after hearing the sound of an explosion. The drones did not reach him, officials said, but it was not clear if they were shot down or exploded prematurely. Seven people were injured, the country’s information minister said.
DAMMIT, DAMMIT, DAMMIT!
Maduro that PIECE OF SHIT, that MURDERED, that THIEF, that KIDNAPPER, that IGNORANT PUNK ASS BASTARD HAS TO DIE!!
Venezuela was once South America’s richest country. Until “recently,” almost all of Venezuela’s mostly urban and educated population had access to clean drinking water, sanitation facilities and electricity. It was an affluent country, with the largest proven fossil-fuel reserves in the world… And then Chavez happened and then Maduro…
There’s no food, no medicine, no money, daily blackouts that last for hours and the country is falling apart.
It upsets me, it makes me sad to see that once a beautiful country is submerged in chaos and desperation. Maduro’s lame ass got lucky this time.
But it’s a matter of time…
