Uh, oh! While the focus is on U.S. foreign interventionism in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and elsewhere in the Middle East, could it be that the U.S. Empire is ginning up for a regime-change operation over in this part of the world, specifically Venezuela, where the Hugo Chavez administration has long been the bane of U.S. officials?
What would be the excuse for interventionism in Venezuela? WMDs? Communism? Terrorism? National security?
No, it seems that if interventionism comes to Venezuela, U.S. officials might decide to trot out an old and reliable standby rationale for regime change: the drug war.
