So yes, that is definitely part of what’s going on. Guyana and Venezuela have been having border disputes since the 19th Century, back when Guyana was British Guiana. I would be surprised if that is not a factor as well. Plus the Guyanese government just changed, so there is probably something going on between Exxon and the new government.

Still lots of questions; I just hope our own imperialists don’t use this to beat more war drums against Venezuela.
