    Photos: Socialism = War | Some recent photos from Venezuela / Cuba indistinguishable

    Photos: Socialism = War

    Some recent photos from Venezuela and Cuba are indistinguishable from those of nations in the rubble of war.


    May 21, 2019

    By Monica Showalter

    A few days ago, economists put out a report stating Venezuela's collapse was the worst seen of any country not at war. The New York Times did a superb piece illustrating that war effect in words with a disturbing front-page picture of a starving child dying on a ragged bed. Sadly, the paper left off the word "socialism," which is kind of like building the Chrysler tower and forgetting to put the ornate steeple on.
    I argued that those two things overlap. Socialism in fact is war — against property, trade, human nature, and human beings. It never provides for its people, no matter what it's advertising, because it can't. It fails every time it's tried.

    But take a look at some recent pictures from Venezuela via Javier Chirinos:



    Así amanecen todas las terminales del país, llenos de niños abandonados que buscan refugio del frío y donde dormir.

    ¿Recuerdan cuando dijeron que acabarían con los niños de la calle?
    Hoy la historia es otra, esta es la verdadera cara del socialismo y su miseria.
    It's as if a bomb went off. It's indistinguishable from an image of a country in the rubble of war. These are horrible pictures, and the victims are helpless children, poorest of the entire world's poor, lying about at port entries like ragdolls, the discarded refuse of socialist glory in the name of "the people." The late, unlamented Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez vowed to end all children living on the streets. He lied, because his socialism always lies.
    Venezuela's great democratic leader, Maria Corina Machado, in a new essay for PanamPost, writes that the country is indeed at war:
    What is entrenched in Venezuela is a regime of another nature, never before present in the Hemisphere. It is made up of the worst mafias in the world that, in addition, develops an unconventional war in our country.
    This type of war, also called asymmetric, is waged on multiple planes, starting with the fundamental one, which is the plane of the minds. Hence, the importance that tyranny gives to psychological operations and the immense investment they make to influence public opinion, national and international, positioning their own narrative.
    In this sense, the Maduro regime, supported by Cuban propaganda experience and the means of dissemination of other powers of the world, has been effective in the construction of false matrices, with the aim of dismantling external forces, diluting the credible threat and demoralizing to the Venezuelans.
    They operate on three fundamental myths: the first, that an external operation in Venezuela would be a massive and conventional military occupation. The second, that the attempt of an external action that entails the exit of the regime would generate a civil war. And the third, that a peaceful transition, has to incorporate the regime's criminal mafias as part of the transitional government.
    War. This is what war looks like — the war of all the socialism.

    From Cuba, it's the same sort of picture:


    Kind of looks like a country at war, does it not? No bombs dropped — the only thing that descended was socialism, and the picture speaks for itself.
    Here is a superb Washington Times essay by Ike Brannan, spotted by Babalu, describing what these pictures mean:
    The sad little fact that confronts anyone who comes here with two open eyes is that 60 years of statism has resulted in an utterly ruined city and a completely impoverished citizenry. That some old buildings are still standing is of little consequence.
    The town smells like the 1960s, thanks in part to the smell of burning garbage wafting over the town from a dump on the town's outskirts, along with the emissions from automobiles from the 1950s and the odd Lada. I was unprepared for pungent air pollution triggering a Proustian-like memory, but we all have our eccentricities.
    The old city's famed architecture does have some charms, but it is not remarkably different than similar enclaves I've visited across Latin America except for the unfortunate fact that the buildings are almost completely unkempt and in danger of disintegrating. Here and there are ones that have completely collapsed. People have died from this lack of upkeep.
    War again. It's the look of a nation at war.
    Socialism = War.

    And that is where they breed, like animals, in the streets and have more mouths they cannot feed.

    Disgusting! Do not bring them here and do NOT use our money for aid or oatmeal to breed MORE of them!

    Give them a "Comprehensive Plan for Reform" and a team of professionals to implement and nothing else!

    STOP GIVING THESE OVERBREEDING IDIOTS BILLIONS OF OUR DOLLARS WITH ZERO RESULTS!!!

    IT IS OUR MONEY FOR AMERICAN'S FIRST!

    I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.

    Guess whom Cuba blames for its food shortages!

    The real problem is that nobody wants to sell anything on credit to Cuba. It's
    "no cash, no tomato."

    More Than 4 Million Venezuelans Have Now Fled The Country



    Should the exodus continue, it could surpass the 6.3 million refugees created by the Syrian civil war.

    Ah, the joys of socialism. Amidst a growing political and economic crisis, 4 million citizens have now fled Venezuela. According to a new report by the UN Refugee Agency and the International Organization for Migration, the pace at which citizens are leaving the country has been "staggering", rising from 695,000 people in 2015 to over 1 million people since November 2018.
    The countries surrounding Venezuela have been forced to put regulatory measures in place to stop the flow of migrants, which will soon be the largest in Latin American history, according to Bloomberg. Should the exodus continue, it could surpass the 6.3 million refugees created by the Syrian civil war.





    Over 12 countries met last year to address the flow of migrants that is putting pressure on resources and stoking tensions in the region. A universal policy for dealing with the problem has yet to be enacted and, on Thursday, Peru said it would increase controls later this month by requiring Venezuelans to apply for humanitarian visas before crossing the border.Colombia remains the primary destination for those leaving Venezuela, and it now hosts 1.3 million people who have fled the country. Peru hosts 768,000; Chile 288,000; Ecuador 263,000; Brazil 168,000 and Argentina 130,000. Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean have also seen an influx of Venezuelan migrants.
    Eduardo Stein, the joint UNHCR-IOM Special Representative for Venezuelan refugees and migrants said: “These alarming figures highlight the urgent need to support host communities in the receiving countries. The countries are doing their part to respond to this unprecedented crisis but they cannot be expected to continue doing it without international help.”

    Just days ago we reported that Venezuela had defaulted on $750 million in gold-backed swaps with Deutsche Bank. As part of a financing agreement signed in 2016 which we profiled here, Venezuela received a cash loan from Deutsche Bank and put up 20 tons of gold as collateral. The agreement, which was set to expire in 2021, was settled early due to missed interest payments as Venezuela has now effectively run out of foreign reserves.
    Additionally, we reported recently how difficult it was to get even $1 worth of Venezuelan Bolivars anywhere in the country: the reason - hyperinflation in the country is alive and well according to the Bloomberg Venezuela Cafe con Leche index.



    Finally, back in April, we documented the "Zombie Apocalypse" that gas gipped the country in photos of Caracas in darkness. A series of AP photographs entitled As the sun sets, Venezuela’s capital empties presented Caracas as essentially becoming a ghost town after sunset, depicting its infrastructure collapse and lack of services like electricity, water, and public transport.
