Venezuela Turns Down Foreign Aid

Powerful nations like the United States extend a helping hand to struggling third-world nations more often than not. Many of these countries don’t have access to the most basic of services, leaving their citizens impoverished and suffering in times of crisis. At times, it is the government’s fault why the country can’t meet the needs of the people. Poor economic management has led to soaring inflation and an epidemic shortage of food and medicines badly needed by the people.

It’s what happened to the socialist country that is Venezuela even though theirs is a country naturally rich in gold and oil. People die even from the most minor of injuries and medical conditions. Unfortunately, instead of accepting help, the Venezuelan government refuses foreign aid much to the horror of its suffering constituents. And the situation will probably worsen than it already is because the possibility of electing a new leader this coming election won’t likely happen with the stronghold of the current administration that is still currently actively seeking out and persecuting those who protests under the current Maduro administration.

The Battleground That Is Syria

We all heard of what happened and is still happening in Syria today. The Syrian civil war has been going on for six years but the end is still not in sight. The government and the rebel forces (now supported or funded by other nations) continue fighting each other and have managed to destroy their homeland. Most of its towns and cities are reduced to rubble and the casualty keeps on rising. The bloodbath has taken the lives of thousands to hundred thousands of innocent Syrian citizens, both young and old.

This all started when a few rebel groups expressed dissent over the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad but the government was adamant in wiping them out. Thus, this war dragged on for so long.  It is disheartening to see young kids dying over chemical warfare and Syrian refugees that are not welcome on many borders. There is no more life in Syria, only bloodbath, and more conflict. Unfortunately, the innocent civilians are the most affected of all as other nations join in on the bombings and deprive them of all hope of ever finding peace again.
