Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has just this week met with the French Prime Minister Francois Hollande. I hope that Maduro is operating on a keep your enemies closer premise! Hollande is such a pretender to socialism, that he’d undoubtedly welcome a junta led by the venal knave Henrique Capriles Radonski! France may look like a puffy and fuzzy old teddy bear — as compared to the US, but still; nevertheless, I say that it’s important for the Bolivarian President Maduro to operate based upon a keep one’s enemies closer thesis.
