As millions of Venezuelans starve, the US must take its share of the blame for the humanitarian and economic crisis

With the United Nations reporting that more than nine million Venezuelans lack food, America’s role in causing this disaster via crippling sanctions cannot go unacknowledged.

The economy of Venezuela is on the brink. To most people, that really isn’t news. While the Latin American nation has long been struggling to keep its head above water, 2020 has been a game changer in many respects.

The United States has continued to tighten the noose with sanctions in pursuit of regime change, oil prices have tumbled and Covid-19 has decimated the global economy, with the latest reports suggesting the country is suffering an unprecedented crisis.

A recent United Nations study states that Venezuela is now suffering from one of the world’s worst food shortages, with an estimated third of its population (9.3 million people) lacking sufficient nutrition and 13 percent of children under the age of five suffering from stunted growth.
