New hazard in Carribean thanks to Venezuela

At least on sailing forums pirates in that area have been reported for ages now. Not new news AFAIK.

It is not thanks to Venezuela, China and Russia played the long game with a debt for oil deal. Maduro walked into it and they have gaffed the country. It is the ordinary people paying for their leaders folly.

They are now giving teaser loans to Perian Gulf states

Ain’t that always the case.
