Shoot a few more protesting students. Remove all protesting students from universal education program and send them to build health clinics in jungle. Hurray for Chavez and Maduro kick all Obama homosexual NSA spying predators out of Venezuela.

Cuba receives much more than “Venezuelan oil on preferential terms.” Venezuelan subsidies and assistance to Cuba is estimated by experts are around US$12 billion a year. 50,000 Cubans are, by official reports, in Venezuela; experts believe the actual number is much larger. The Venezuela-Cuba collaboration agreement is secret, but explains the Cuban presence (and command) in the Venezuelan military, intelligence and all strategic sectors. One of the main grievances of the student demonstrators is to regain their country’s sovereignty and end massive aid to Cuba.
