Venezuela sends Cuba humanitarian aid
Internationally, the world is in turmoil. A massive earthquake rocked Mexico and more hurricanes keep forming pounding the US and the Caribbean. The Independent is reporting that Mexico had to rescind its offer to send Texas humanitarian aid after the hurricane as it needed to channel all its resources into providing earthquake relief to it's own citizens. That makes perfect sense. What doesn't make any sense is why Mexico would be sending America humanitarian aid? That's kind of like Canada and the US sending China humanitarian aid when China owns our debt.
Loop is reporting that "Venezuela continues to aid some of the islands ravaged by Hurricane Irma, this time sending much-needed supplies to Cuba." I'm a bit confused. I respect the gesture. Cuba was nailed by hurricane Irma and needs aid. I was under the impression that Venezuela is in turmoil and didn't have any food in its supermarkets. That's why there is a mass exodus there and half of Venezuela is now living in Colombia. The world is in turmoil alright.
