US silent on Venezuela Coup

Old Blog Import

A number of papers ran with articles or op-ed pieces about the failure of the US to denounce the coup in Venezuela. Including the LA Times, the Washington Post, and Krugman in the NY Times. There is also additional reporting in CounterPunch and a bunch of stuff on Znet. My brother also sent a letter to the NY Times pointing out what no one else seems to be saying, which is that with a pending Oil Crisis, there is a very real motivation for the US not to speak out against the coup.
