Question--

Even the officer corps is deserting in Venezuela.  When the officers flee, the NCOs won't be far behind.  Leaving the enlisted to do so, or use their arms to enrich themselves.  Of course, in Venezuela, riches are a case of Spam and a six pack.

"Military officers are joining the exodus of Venezuelans to Colombia and Brazil, fleeing barracks and forcing President Nicolas Maduro’s government to call upon retirees and militia to fill the void. 

High desertion rates at bases in Caracas and the countryside are complicating security plans for the presidential election in 13 days, which by law require military custody of electoral materials and machinery at voting centers.

“The number is unknown because it used to be published in the Official Gazette. Now, it is not,” said Rocio San Miguel, director of Control Ciudadano, a military watchdog group in Caracas. She said soldiers are fleeing for the same reason citizens are: “Wages are low, the quality of food and clothing isn’t good.”

Last week, officers who rank as high as general were called in and quartered for several days at their units. Retired officials and militia members were also contacted by their superiors, according to one retired officer who asked not to be named for fear of angering the regime. Government officials are training these fill-in personnel for the election, said a second retired officer."

Remember Bernie Sanders told us Venezuela was the future!  If, that's the future, I'm shopping for a flux capacitor.

It's not that 'no one knows why', it's that nobody cares what you do, Krow. You're so filled with bias and hate for the 'opposing team', it's not worth the time to debate you.

It's wasn't up for debate, it's a simple question to the reason for
the attraction of Liberalism.
I understand your neglect for daily news which would inform
you to the real bias and hate from your side of the street, not mine.

Wasn't it you, not some news source, that said your job was daily disdain for the liberals?

They know, they just don't want to admit it's because libs are going to " give them stuff", and they don't care what happens to the country as long as they are getting their "free stuff". Free to them that is.
