    Venezuela had a bizarre plan to sell banned Syrian oil to the US at prices well below the price of Venezuelan oil. Never got off the ground.

    Goldman Sachs gives a leg up to the Venezuelan Govt, and a hand to the opponents.


    The Venezuelan “Hunger Bonds” movement made limited progress in its first eight months of existence. Aimed at shaming international investors into boycotting the repressive government’s bonds, or at least raising awareness about the subject, the term was really only known among a small crowd of specialists.
    Then Goldman Sachs Group Inc. made a big investment in the debt.
    And because every protest movement needs a foil -- a role Goldman has played many times before -- the campaign has suddenly gained a surge of momentum. Demonstrators outside the bank’s New York headquarters Tuesday chanted, “No more hunger bonds, Goldman Sachs,” and the term was flying around the internet, appearing in scores of tweets and memes that featured images of malnourished Venezuelans scavenging for food.

    Syrian Oil? So that's what it's all about now? LOL
    Thus all which you call Sin, Destruction—in brief, Evil—that is my true element.

    Missed this back in 2015 - Jen Pskaki smirking and journalists laughing as she says in relation to Venezuela that "the US does not support non-democratic transitions"...
