Revolution in Venezuela

Trump and pals have been trying to engineer a revolution against Maduro.  Putin is trying to keep him in.  So far, the revolt is not going so well.  This fits with a lot of other experience we've had lately.  Angry people are not enough to overthrow a dictator with loyal generals and a few armored vehicles.  That goes double when a lot of the impetus is coming from an outside power - namely us.
