Damn those America imperialists at the Guardian with their 'fake news'....
The US is upset with Venezuela for buying back their gold reserves from the New York Fed when Chavez was in charge. Since then the US has done nothing to improve relations with the oil rich south american dictatorship. They were fine cozening up to Castro in Cuba seeing how that island is not in a position to threaten the US economically.

"The human details are more poignant: over the past year around three-quarters of Venezuelans have lost weight, averaging 8.7kg per person, because of a scarcity of food. No war, foreign or civil, is to blame for this catastrophe. Venezuela did this to itself. And its woes are deepening, as the regime of President Nicolás Maduro lurches towards dictatorship. Fifty years ago, Venezuela was an example to the rest of Latin America, a relatively stable democracy and not much poorer than Britain. How did this tragedy occur?"

Latin America has been moving in this direction for a long time. We have to be balanced when we talk about Latin America. Brazil & Argentina have impeached their leaders for corruption so this is not just Venezuela. For decades the far right has monopolized Hispanic countries now we are seeing the reverse with left wing populists. Personalities like Chavez, Lula & Kirchner have brought enormous shifts in terms of combating poverty in their respective countries.
