Obama Sanctions Russian Aggressors. And Venezuela's?

Friday, March 7, 2014
Yesterday, U.S. President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order to sanction Russian individuals and entities responsible for the aggression in Ukraine and for stealing the assets of the Ukrainian people.

Kudos to the President.

However, when will President Obama sanction the individuals responsible for the repression against peaceful students in Venezuela and for stealing the assets of the Venezuelan people?

It's more than distasteful for the U.S. to keep allowing Venezuelan "boligarchs" and their families to fly their private jets to Miami on the weekends for shopping sprees at Dadeland and Aventura, while they continue murdering, torturing and harassing protesters.

This Executive Order regarding Ukraine serves as a legal road-map for similar action regarding Venezuela.

It should be taken.
