Mujica not to visit Chávez because "there is no possibility to see him"
Doctors taking care of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez reported that visits are not allowed, said lawmaker Lucía Topolansky, the wife of Uruguayan President José Mujica
Mujica's intended trip to Havana "makes no sense" because doctors taking care of Chávez informed that visits are not allowed, said the legislator.
She added that they have been closely monitoring "with attention and concern" the news about Chávez's health, whom she described as a friend. She told local media, "We must wait and have faith."
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.
