I don't follow their situation so much, but I know that if Obama could shake hands with and look Gaddafi in the eye before feeding him to the wolves, then it would have been much easier to plant the cancer in Chavez. That doesn't clue anyone in to my political opinions, it's just stating a glaring fact.
Of course, they can't kill Maduro the same way, because that would be too obvious. He is not a cult of personality like his predecessor, so the thought is that he may not even need to be killed off directly. His success in fending off the economic assault will determine the course of action in trying to remove him from power.
They might be a thorn in the chess board, but they're not bad people. I wish them well.
Oh, I seem to remember Kellog being involved in some scheme to hinder erections. Evil!
