If Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is in such a good health condition to sign an Act, then "I urge him to show up and speak to Venezuela and reveal what is going on with the Government, because it seems we do not have one," said reelected Miranda state governor Henrique Capriles Radonski during his inauguration speech. Reference was made to the decree appointing Elías Jaua as foreign minister, which was signed by Chávez.

Capriles Radonski stated that Jaua, who was his runner-up in the gubernatorial election held last December 16, was appointed as foreign minister as a reward for his defeat. "This demonstrates the relevance of the circumstances and means that we did the right thing."

Addressing local citizens, he said, "We are here for the sake of all."

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.
