A more contextual look at Marc Rubio's tweets and the history of US intervention to replace dictators. Most all claims are backed by other, reliable sources and the author does a great job of not including his own personal bias or favor towards a heated issue.

Overall, the article does a good job explaining Rubio's technically speculative but aggressive messages towards the Maduro regime. I appreciated that the author was disciplined enough to critique Obama for his use of executive military power in Libya, which Obama later referred to as his biggest mistake while in office. However, I do have issue with the following two sentences "The Maduro regime is illegitimate and monstrous, and the world will be better off when it no longer exists. Three-quarters of Venezuelans reportedly lost 19 pounds in 2016, and the regime continues to block some humanitarian aid while seizing other shipments for its favorites." These two sentences make it appear that Maduro is a failed leader, but neglect to mention that intense U.S. sanctions have by no means helped Venezuela's citizens. Besides those two out-of-context sentences, the piece is right to question the purpose and intentions behind those calling for military intervention.
