Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Saturday described as "terminated" his government-initiated talks with Barack Obama administration. He stressed he would implement a "zero tolerance" policy for "aggressions" on Venezuela.

"My policy as president is zero tolerance for gringo aggression against Venezuela. I am not going to stand any verbal aggression against Venezuela, neither political nor diplomatic. Enough is enough! Stay away with your empire. Do not mess any more with Venezuela," said Maduro during a ceremony of military promotions in Cojedes state, central Venezuela.

The Venezuelan president also reiterated his rejection and condemnation of the statements issued by Samantha Power, the Washington ambassador nominee to the United Nations, on Venezuela. "When she went to Congress, she went crazy and started to attack Venezuela just like that. She started to say that she is going to the UN to monitor and make clear what the repression on political and civil institutions in Venezuela is, and that she will address the lack of democracy in Venezuela."

Maduro mentioned a phone call US Secretary of State John Kerry made to Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua. According to Maduro, the Venezuelan foreign minister warned the US top diplomat that Venezuela will not accept any pressures in connection with Caracas' offer to grant asylum to former CIA agent Edward Snowden, who is charged with leaking classified information on espionage programs.

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.
