MaduroA national defense analyst predicts that Venezuela's neighbors may provide the solution to that country's continued misery. 

More than a dozen European Union countries have joined with the United States to voice support for Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country's interim president, action that puts pressure on embattled President Nicolas Maduro (pictured at left) to step down and clear the way for a new presidential election.

But the despot president is trying to cling to power, says Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, with help from military forces from Iran and Cuba, mercenaries from Russia, and even drug traffickers.

"To try to ensure that [Maduro] continues to exercise this ruinous control that has literally bankrupted his country," says Gaffney.

But the region is thankfully no longer dominated by radical leftist governments, including Brazil and Colombia where the citizens are being led by conservative leaders.

"And I believe those governments, and the people of those countries who have been --- by the way --- very heavily impacted by the large number of Venezuelan refugees," predicts Gaffney, "are likely to prove to be the catalysts for change on the ground that we really need to see there." 

The United States should be supporting those countries in achieving that change, he adds.
