No medical reports, photos or video footage of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez were disclosed during the first 24 hours of the president's stay in Venezuela. Neither details on the president's condition were provided by the Venezuelan Government or ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).

On Tuesday, Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and Congress' Speaker Diosdado Cabello chaired a meeting with Bolivian President Evo Morales, who traveled to Venezuela to visit the Venezuelan head of state.

"The Bolivian people are happy, content, and excited about Chávez's return to Venezuela," President Morales told TV multi-state news television channel Telesur.

By press time, no official information about a meeting between the Bolivian and Venezuelan presidents had been released. However, quoting sources from the Information and Communication Ministry, private news TV channel Globovisión stated that the two leaders had actually met. No details were provided.

President Chávez's daughter, María Gabriela Chávez, twitted, "It was a beautiful meeting with our brother, Evo. He has come to support us and express the love of the Bolivian people."

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.
