No money for food, just guns

The Herald reports:

Embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro yesterday announced plans to expand the number of civilians involved in armed militias as tensions in the crisis-wracked South American nation continued to rise.

Maduro said he hopes to expand the number of civilians involved in the Bolivarian militias created by the late Hugo Chavez to 500,000, up from the current 100,000, and provide each member with a gun.

The population is starving, and Maduro’s solution is to buy more guns for his socialist militias.
