Speaker of the Venezuelan National Assembly Diosdado Cabello said on Wednesday in his Twitter account that the opposition cannot make demands on President Hugo Chávez's followers. His statement came after the opposition alliance United Democratic Panel (MUD) requested the Venezuelan Government, through its executive secretary Ramón Guillermo Aveledo, to explain in an "objective and reliable" manner the current state of health of President Hugo Chávez.

"@dcabellor Some komodo dragons think they can make demands on Chávez's people. I hope they make no mistakes. Sadness is not weakness," he said in a tweet.

Further, Cabello said that Chavezism "is very clear what to do," and urged the opposition to focus on their own plans.

"@dcabellor Information for Venezuelan opposition leaders: Chavez's people are very clear what we will do. Take care of what you would do," he said in another message posted on the social network.
This is all there is

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.
