Rejecting strong criticism against his recent meeting with left-wing former Spanish President Felipe González in Colombia, Venezuelan opposition leader and ex-presidential candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski stated that the Venezuelan Government attempts to "mislead people" and prevent political actors and ruling party supporters from holding contact with leaders from other countries. "They (government officials) want a single and common voice (to represent Venezuela) abroad," he uttered. 

Responding to accusations of conspiracy, Capriles invited Minister of the Interior and Justice Néstor Reverol to present evidence or take back his words. The opposition leader remarked that he has never been afraid of the Venezuelan Government and that he never would.

With reference to corruption accusations against some opposition deputies and presented by official party deputies at the Congress session held on Tuesday, Capriles said that such allegations were not aimed at the deputies mentioned during the session, but at him. 

The ex-presidential candidate underscored that he fears neither the "courts nor deputies, nor lawyers, nor defiant government officials."

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.
