    Good news for Maduro! He needs a war to boost his public opinion polls and we all know how a small territorial dispute is a way to unify a unhappy populace.

    The US has already back up Guyana in its right to those seas. Too bad for Maduro and Venezuela those seas are lost to them, since they will not be able to push off the little country.

    Territorial disputes are becoming quite popular in S. America.

    This one could get rather interesting very quickly.

    Even more fun as Exxon's Venezulean assets were unlawfully seized without reasonable compensation. Exxon has publicly denounced both the Chavez and Maduro governments.
