I’m no fan of Maduro, but this tweet by Marco Rubio demands pushback:
To hell with the War on Drugs and any related fearmongering.
To hell with the other fearmongering about how opposing or insubordinate governments have spheres of influence, too. I’m less bothered by a Russian military base in Venezuela than I am by American military bases worldwide; Russia has fewer of them, and thus they threaten fewer innocents, and their perpetrators don’t claim to threaten the innocent on my behalf.
And to hell with any member of the Imperial Senate talking about “our hemisphere.”
