Nicolás Maduro, Venezuela's President rejected the remarks made by opposition deputy Julio Borges about the assassination claims aired on Monday.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro reported on Wednesday that two Colombian individuals "hired by drug traffickers to kill the Head of State" were arrested.

In that sense, Maduro rejected the remarks made by opposition deputy Julio Borges about the assassination claims aired on Monday. "Borges made an irresponsible and anxious statement, saying that (the hit men) that were arrested did not even have firearms to accomplish their task.  I can show him all the evidence whenever he wants, so he can stop being so irresponsible. It was a plan to assassinate the head of state of his country," Maduro stressed.

The Venezuelan president also revealed that "the plan was to kill me in parallel with the attack against Syria, in order to eliminate this wonder called Venezuela; this moral and politic wonder in Latin America and the world called Venezuela. It is an imperial offensive."

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.
