Trump pressed aides on Venezuela invasion, US official says

From the article:
As a meeting last August in the Oval Office to discuss sanctions on Venezuela was concluding, President Donald Trump turned to his top aides and asked an unsettling question: With a fast unraveling Venezuela threatening regional security, why can’t the U.S. just simply invade the troubled country?

He's talking about gunboat diplomacy. My question is: To what good end?

The thing about Venezuela and that general area is that it's been unstable for a long, long time. Just as soon as El Presidente slips on a banana peel and suffers a fatal concussion, another one takes his place and it's all freedom and all hail to el presidente, then the economy goes into the toilet again, people starve (which is what is going on right now in 'socialist' Venezuela) and the place will change hands again real soon.

I've concluded that one reason we don't have more civil insurrection in the United States is because the place is big enough to keep enemies separated.

Sad when a nation is so rich in natural resources and cannot find a way to take care of its own citizens properly.

Is invading failing countries what Fat Donny was elected to do? Fool that I am, I thought that one of his themes while he was running -- which made him such a darling of Tea Party movement, and gained him such wide support -- was his pledge to end the role of America as the world's police. I thought that Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, vowed to stop sending our young people into meaningless battles for dubious goals.
