    Yes, I mean planting chickens: like burying them in the dirt, watering them, and expecting a crop.

    I see Wikileaks is blaming the US for Venezuela's problems. What a trash organization. It is always the mean old US causing Marxism to fail in Cuba and Chile and Venezuela and the USSR.

    Skimming the Wikileaks section on Venezuela I found no blame-casting for the country's problems. Where are those allegations?
