Venezuela's Minister of the Interior and Justice Néstor Reverol said on Thursday that security has been reinforced to protect Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and Congress' Speaker Diosdado Cabello, after Reverol himself on Wednesday warned against an alleged plan to kill the two senior officials.

"Yesterday (Wednesday) we had to inform about another destabilization plan of the Venezuelan ultra right-wing (sic) at home, in combination with ultra right-wing actors abroad, intended to kill Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and Congress's Speaker Diosdado Cabello. The two officials are referred to as the ‘little lieutenant' and the ‘bus driver,'" the minister noted.

"We will not let destabilization by the ultra right-wing to move even an inch. Police and intelligence services are on the alert. Security measures for comrades (Maduro and Cabello) have been reinforced," the minister remarked.

Additionally, following an attack against a crew of state-run TV channel VTV, Reverol said three people are under arrest.

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.
