This article gives you some examples of how US economic warfare can wreck havoc on struggling societies and their most vulnerable citizens. This weapon has been used by the US throughout most of the post-WWII years in place of outright invasion of countries especially in Latin America that was favored in the years before WWII. Now that the US Empire is facing serious opposition to the Empire's imperialist policies from countries like Russia, China, Iran, and to a lesser extent with many other countries, we see this weapon used by the masters of the Empire against many countries. The weaker ones like Venezuela, especially its poorer citizens, suffer the most.
Revealing examples are emerging of the cumulative impact that US sanctions against Venezuela are having on the Venezuelan people in the field of health, one of the key priorities of the Bolivarian revolution.
