Jimmy Dore - US Sanctions Are Killing Venezuelans: UN Expert Says

An U.N. expert says that the U.S. sanctions are crippling its economy and are illegal, but the media says nothing about this. They only say that socialism doesn't work, even though over 70% of Venezuela's economy is privately owned. It's no more socialist than Norway, or the rest of Scandinavia, which the U.S. accepts.

So, we have the illegal U.S. sanctions on a country where the elections that were considered to be fair by international observers, and by Jimmy Carter, but the U.S. is considered to be the good guy.

Sanctions are designed to hurt the population and thousands of people may die due to lack of food and medicines. It is a type of warfare. To deliberately take away people's medicines is a crime against humanity, but no one in the media is calling the U.S. out. Putting sanctions on medicine and food is an evil thing to do.

'Modern day economic sanctions and blockades are comparable with medieval seiges of towns ', says the U.N. expert.

'But not just towns, but whole countries to their knees ', he adds.

Jimmy Dore cuts through the propaganda.
