    You mean besides them supplying a significant portion of our oil? You mean despite the fact that all of Latin America is looking at our treatment of Venezuela as an indicator of whether we are a nation to be looked up to or despised?

    As I said elsewhere, we are judged not based on how we treat those governments we like, but on how we treat those we despise.  

    There are no countries in Latin America who want us to be the "bad cop." They know the bad cop first-hand, the nation that overthrows legally-elected governments, supports and arming death squads, and demands preferential treatment for American companies even as they poison the land with the cyanide from gold mining and the crude oil from the petroleum industry.
