U. S. Comes in for the Kill Armed with More Venezuela Sanctions and Maybe an Oil Embargo

The U. S. and its allies must think this is their last opportunity to destroy Venezuela and disappear the social and economic gains of the Bolivarian Revolution.  It seems the U. S. will employ a full-court-press when the next tsunami of sanctions is issued in a few months

A recent McClatchy news story — Trump taking aim at Venezuela Oil:  U. S. Gas Prices Could Rise — outlines various sanction scenarios and provides analysis about what an outright oil embargo might mean for Venezuela and the U. S. An excerpt is below.

“While a full embargo on purchasing Venezuelan oil — the so-called “nuclear option” —is being actively discussed, the administration is zeroing in on more surgical sanctions that block the sale of oil and oil processing products by U.S. companies to Venezuela and hinder Caracas’s oil industry without directly impacting the Venezuelan people.”
