'Bread War' breaks out in Venezuela
After living through shortages of water, electricity, medicine, banknotes
and beer, Venezuelans are now struggling to find one of the most basic
foodstuffs of all, unleashing what President Nicolas Maduro has dubbed the
"Bread War."

Bread has become all but impossible to find at many Venezuelan bakeries,
which say Mr. Maduro's socialist government is not importing enough flour
for them to make it.

Not so, Mr. Maduro insists and accuses bakeries of hoarding flour to
destabilize his government and using it in expensive cakes and pastries
rather than cheap, subsidized bread.

As always - and since Stalin - left-wing totalitarian systems blame the
victims and refuse to accept responsibility for their corruption and
failure.
Maduro is moving towards a coup. He already did a "constitutional coup"
by illegally loading the supreme court. Now the militias he handed guns
to and the army are his real power base. Not the people as elections
showed. His refusal to accept the "revocatorio" shows how he fears the
people.
