Inquiry into the causes of plane crash during air show in Venezuela
Venezuela's Communication and Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said the pilots were not injured
The minister added that the pilots were not harmed during the accident.
"Unfortunately, we had some inconveniences with one plane, the K-8. We must establish a difference between these planes and the Y-8. The latter was recently bought from China," the Minister said to radio station Unión Radio.
A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
