Rather than sanctions, the United States should consider taking the humanitarian high road and provide Venezuela, a country on the precipice of actual starvation, with food — with no strings attached. Frankly, we do humanitarian a lot better than we do military. Wouldn’t it be a nice change of pace if the rest of the world actually respected something we did abroad? And the farmers in the United States wouldn’t mind a bit if the government bought some of what they have to offer. We could simply tell the world that, while we don’t agree with the politics of the current regime in Venezuela, we refuse to see people starve in the Western Hemisphere.
