If you are wondering what is WFP, here is their Twitter info:

I remember in school helping pack boxes with canned goods to send to the Biafra conflict and then later also helping to send food and clothing to Peru and Nicaragua after horrible earthquakes devastated them. Anywhere people suffered and needed food, Venezuela always shared its wealth without delay or questioning.

Now Venezuela is the devastated country in need of international help to combat starvation and save children thanks to Socialism. Remember when I predicted Venezuela was going to be the Somalia  of Latin America?   They even have pirates too.

Do you know why these people in Austin are waving the communist flag with pride and energy? Because their bellies are full.

If there are to be warring clans, I expect they get to target Chavistas and do to them what they have done to the Country and its people.  There are plenty of light posts in Caracas in need of the proper decorations.

  1. Is that tweet intended to be congratulatory, “wasting no time”? Considering how many _years_ the people have been starving it’s coming across as sarcasm.

  2. My genuine sympathies go out to the average “man on the street” in Venezuela, but I must confess that it absolutely red-lined my Schadenfreude-ometer to see that the WFP tweet was sent on May 1st.

  3. From the world’s leading oil producer in the southern hemisphere to needing UN food relief, all in a decade. Aint socialism grand?

    1. Even if Venezuela didn’t have a single drop of oil, the fact that they cannot feed themselves is shocking. Rich soil of the Maracaibo Basin and Orinoco watershed, a year round growing season, deep water ports with easy access to abundant fisheries and easy maritime trade with the Caribbean and North America… The country should be (and once was) overflowing with agricultural products.

      Only a socialist could starve to death in the Garden of Eden.

      1. There is no such thing as rich soil in the Maracaibo basin and anyweher near the Orinoco. All the good soil is in the North Central area of the country (Carabobo, Aragua, Miranda states are the best).
        The average topsoil outside the North Central barely reaches a foot. Anything South of the Orinoco has a heavy iron content which makes for hard soils, impossible to grow anything but grass. North of the Orinoco, you need a LOT of fertilizer to replenish the nutrients and still it will take up to 3 years to be able to reuse a plot of land either for agriculture of cattle.

        Still when we had a great petrochemical production and were practically giving away fertilizer, we may have produced almost half the required foodstuffs for the country (That was late 70 to early 80s). We still had to import a lot os stuff, specially white corn and beans from Africa and beef and wheat from anywhere else in South America.

        1. I’ll defer to your expertise on the specifics, but my broader point is that Venezuela should certainly be able to produce enough food to feed itself!
