America screwed up years ago, when they tried to manipulate Venezuela to favor the corporate oil barons, (mostly from the U.S.). This went back to at least 1969 with Venezuelan president Rafael Caldera. A lot of resistance developed in the 1990's, and the U.S. got involved in the 1999 uprising.

The U.S. lost, and Hugo Chavez became president. When Chavez came to power, Venezuela saw sweeping and radical shifts in social policy, moving away from the government officially embracing a "free market" economy, (which very few in Venezuelans shared in),  and Neo-liberal reform principles and towards  socialist income redistributions, (which the American oil company Barons didn't like),  and social welfare  programs.

The U.S. tried again to have an overthrow of Hugo Chavez in 2002, but lost that battle too.  The U.S. involvement simply hardened a lot of Venezuelans to adopt Chavez's idea of governing.  The U.S. sanctions since has further radicalized many of the Venezuelans.

The U.S. could have approached Venezuela differently, by accepting and working with their government , instead of sending the CIA there to cause trouble, as they did in 11 other Latin American countries over the past 50 years. Venezuela is what it is today, no thanks to the U.S.

Of course, the U.S. 🦍😈 is rather notorious for its idiotic foreign policies.
