Syria was more or less saved by Russia. Venezuela is not the Middle East though and it is a lot further away from Russia/closer to the USA. I fear that if Russia and a coalition of other countries like the ones sending in aid now (China/Turkey/etc.) don’t step in militarily to defend Venezuela, there will be no stopping the Empire from toppling Maduro. Basically, they will have to stand between the USA and Venezuela and say that if you attack them, you are attacking us too. Sending in aid (that is not sent with the intent of over throwing the government) is great but it’s going to take more than that if they are going to stop these filthy war pigs from getting what they want.
