Argentinean President: Photo of Chávez is a dirty trick
"On the front page of El País I saw a photo. Let me correct, that is not a photo, but a dirty trick"
"On the front page of El País I saw a photo. Let me correct, that is not a photo, but a dirty trick," twitted on Thursday the Argentinean president on her account @CFKArgentina.
El País took out on Thursday of its website a photo that made its front page, presumably the exclusive image of President Chávez, featuring also in the first printed edition, a copy of which was received by Kirchner, AFP cited.
"Nasty press. I cannot think of any other term. It is the same everywhere," Kirchner lamented in another twit as part of a number of criticisms on Thursday against the media, including British The Sun and Argentinean El Clarín, in support of Chávez's government.
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.
