At E3 I asked  Mercenaries 2 lead designer Scott Warner about the whole political controversy of setting a game in Venezuela and he mentioned that it didn't really impact their design at all but after seeing this trailer you have to wonder if Caesar Chavez isn't going to raise a fuss about the Americans creating a simulator to help people learn to invade his country.  While there's no obvious connection I do think that people are going to enjoy blowing stuff up in this game and it's not like you don't have the option of working for the government forces.
