Faced with an opposition, crime spiraling out of control (at least 18,000 murders last year) the government of Venezuela is doing what the Left does best; they are sending in the tanks to “restore order.” (No word on restoring freedom.) Latin American Herald Tribune – Venezuela Unleashes Tanks as 4 Killed, 1,200 Arrested
Police and National Guard killed four suspects Tuesday during a wide raid in Western Caracas that involved tanks and helicopters, as Venezuela also underwent the rare climate phenomenon known as a “solar halo.”
While it is possible to keep a population docile with handouts, Venezuela has no money to buy the necessities. And so the population is no longer docile. So the socialists take a page out of the communists’ handbook and send in the tanks.
And solar halos, or 22° halos, are not rare.
