    Apparently you're the expert on this.

    The US can buy or get oil from anywhere, including its own production, if venezuela didn't want to sell to us anymore.  This means that Venezuela needs us more than we need them.  Ergo, no need for any risky foreign policy moves in Venezuela.  If there was a regime change in Venezuela, the US would not be the beneficiary.  China and Russia would be, if the regime change produced a government which could actually deliver on its promises to export more oil.

    The US, for all its faults, isn't in the business of producing regime changes for China and Russia.  At least not yet.
