Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My guess is that every side is trying to avoid repeating the caracazo. Partly because the lesson from that was that mayhem and massacres never stabilize a situation, partly because they don't want to be seen as the regime that killed it's own people.

So, at least at the top they treat each other with some decency and moderation. And mostly on the ground level, too. Of course in the crowds there are always testoterone-filled idiots too young to remember bodies on the streets 30 years ago. Or people paid to cause trouble.
