Crisis in the Andes: Venezuela, Colombia, and Bolivia

North Americans were raised with the romantic awe that came from viewing the beauty of the Andes Mountain ranges, the natural rain forests to the east, and the native cultures inhabiting a number of nations within its reaches.

In this New Year 2020, the National Geographic panorama has been shattered by approximately one third of Venezuelan society fleeing from a failed despot into neighboring Colombia, the residual effect being a welcoming Colombia now teetering on the edge of social and economic chaos. Add to this, Bolivia exhausted by the incompetency of its recently deposed president, is enmeshed in economic chaos and civil war.

Three failed nation states that have destroyed the National Geographic image and supplanted it with the potential to have a catastrophic impact on the entire region of South America.
