This is what I keep telling you: that whole “end of history” thing was bullshit.
Democracy and consumerism did not stop war and conquest, it just paused them for a few decades.
History is back, the world is back, and if Venezuela can annex Guyana (and they basically definitely can), there is no reason that Conor McGregor can’t crown himself King of Ireland.
Tensions between neighbors Venezuela and Guyana have ratcheted up in recent weeks over a long-running territorial dispute.
At issue is a 160,000-square-km (62,000-square-mile) border territory around the Esequibo river, which is mostly jungle, and an offshore area where massive discoveries of oil and gas have been made.
Both countries claim ownership of the territory, which is sparsely populated and whose much-disputed border was agreed under a 1899 decision when Guyana was still part of the British Empire.
Venezuela reactivated its claim to the territory in recent years after the finding of some 11 billion barrels of recoverable oil and gas off Guyana’s coast.
Analysts and sources in Caracas have said the referendum, in which voters also rejected the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) jurisdiction over the case, will not translate to actual invasion. It is, they say, an attempt by Maduro to show strength and gauge support for his government ahead of 2024 presidential elections.
Oil production is currently at some 400,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) of oil and gas and is expected to rise to more than 1 million bpd by 2027. It has sharply boosted Guyana’s economy and promises huge income for the country over the coming years.
Though Venezuela sits on the world’s largest crude reserves and also has massive deposits of natural gas, its production has fallen significantly in recent years on U.S. sanctions, alleged corruption and deteriorated infrastructure.
Guyana’s President Irfaan Ali said on Tuesday the country will report Maduro’s comments about proposed oil development to the United Nations and the ICJ and that he has spoken with U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
His country’s armed forces are on high alert, Ali added, saying Venezuela had declared itself an “outlaw nation” and blatantly disregard ICJ orders.
Power belongs only to those willing to seize it.
Such is the eternal law of nature.
Maybe the US will declare war on Venezuela. Obviously, Maduro doesn’t think this will happen. He thinks those faggots are very busy with their wars in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and he can therefore do whatever he wants.
I think he’s right.
Up the people.
