Congress' Speaker: opposition leader's statement is a declaration of war
Via Twitter, Diosdado Cabello stated that Capriles had violated the memory of the Venezuelan Head of State and his supporters.
After opposition leader Henrique Capriles Radonski announced his candidacy to the presidential election and criticized the way the Venezuelan Government managed information concerning President Hugo Chávez's health and death, Congress's Speaker Diosdado Cabello regarded Capriles statements as a "declaration of war."
Via Twitter, Cabello stated that Capriles had violated the memory of the Venezuelan Head of State and his supporters.
Additionally, responding to Capriles' statements, which included criticism of the defense minister, ruling party Deputy Freddy Bernal voiced the Government's strong support for the Armed Forces.

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.
