Venezuela and US Diplomats

The White House response here is actually correct and proportionate. I appreciate some on the hard left want it to be a recreation of the Chilean coup so it adds to their sense of feeling virtuous and morally important. When in fact those opposing the brutal regime, and it is a brutal regime, of Maduro are not right wing military officers but social democratic politicians who got to their posts through conventional democratic means. On that basis it is those who need support, not Maduro. Backing human rights and the rule of Law should not be dependent on the ideological positions of all concerned
