According to the Wall Street Journal, one retired Venezuelan general
said the protests against socialist Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro
and his government are growing so large that Venezuelan authorities are
unable to keep them under control.

Retired Gen. Miguel Rodríguez Torres, 53, who served as Maduro’s
interior minister in 2013 and 2014, said that large riots and protests
have cropped up in every major city, including the working class
neighborhoods that once firmly supported Maduro’s government.

The protests began after judges allied with Maduro attempted to dissolve
the opposition-controlled Congress in late March. This move, combined
with starvation because of shortages of everything from food to basic
necessities such as toilet paper, the country of Venezuela has become a
powder keg. Almost 75 percent of Venezuelans are losing dangerous
amounts of weight due to starvation, and women have been sterilizing
themselves in order to avoid having another mouth to feed.

Torres said that President Maduro needs to begin negotiating election
dates in order to avoid plunging the country into anarchy. Maduro
postponed all Venezuelan elections — originally to be held in December —
to mid-2017.

One can but hope that Venezuelan soldiers don't shoot on their own
people and refuse the orders of the Castro-Chavist "putchist" elite.
The people and the soldiers united against the corrupt military-Chavista
elite.That is the way ahead for Venezuela.
