18. "I believe those terrible conditions are a result of unfair economic conditions over 20yrs"

Examples? The US has been Venz's largest trading partner for exports AND imports so hard to say the US was waging any economic warfare. Plus Venz. can buy food etc from any country on the planet of they had the money.

Poorly thought out govt polices are at the root of all their problems:

Price controls during rampant inflation making the shelves bare of food...check
Over printing money causing the million % inflation...check
Ridiculous multi-level currency controls ensuring no dollars to buy imports...check
Confiscation of foreign property driving off investment...check
Firing competent oil workers and substituting lackeys, ensuring oil production drops...check
Failing to diversify the economy from oil...check
Failing to invest in electrical infrastructure resulting in rolling blackouts...check
Pricing gas so low it's all black marketed to neighboring countries...check

Command economies have never worked.
