Nicolás Maduro to meet with owners of major private TV networks
President Nicolás Maduro said the meeting is intended to address the "anti-values of capitalism" which, he said, are one of the reasons behind high crime rates in Venezuela
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the "anti-values of capitalism" that are broadcast by the media. According to Maduro, this is one of the causes of high crime rates in Venezuela. "You have to change. Venevisión, Televen, and all television networks in this country need to change. I will suggest them to make other type of television," said Maduro.
He said that Camero and Cisneros confirmed their attendance to the meeting.
A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions.

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.
