Venezuela and Guyana Have Argued for Centuries. Who Benefits from a War Now?


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The border dispute between Venezuela and Guyana over the Esequibo region has been a source of tension between the two countries for over a century. The dispute centers on a 62,000-square-mile (160,000-square-kilometer) of a very rich territory claimed by both countries.

Here’s the background of the dispute with Guyana

The dispute dates back to the 19th century when the United Kingdom granted Guyana independence from British rule. Venezuela disputed the validity of the treaty, arguing that the region has been part of its territory since the independence wars. This is an absolute truth. Indeed, in the antique maps, it was registered and never was objected…until centuries later.


The dispute was never resolved, and it has remained a source of tension between the two countries. It didn´t help that Uncle Hugo never had the nerve to claim it, busy as he was against the “Evil Empire” and dribbling hot air all over the world. He was aware that military actions would be so serious that every single component of the Communal State would be dismantled, and it would be back again to be a real Republic.

In recent years, the dispute has become bitter, as both countries have discovered oil and gas reserves in the region. In 2022, Guyana awarded a contract to Exxon Mobil to explore for oil in the Esequibo region. This move angered the Venezuelan bus driver’s gang, which proceeded to threaten with “actions” against Guyana.

Here are some of the key factors that are contributing to the tensions between Venezuela and Guyana:

  • The discovery of oil and gas reserves in the Esequibo region has made the territory even more valuable.
  • The increasing militarization of the border area has raised the risk of conflict. Of course, this is a very rich and isolated area and the military elite is already highly experienced in looting gold mines in the region.

The dispute is a complex issue with no easy solution. The territory belonging to Venezuela is even larger than all the extensions of the Guyana country!

The maps are there and have been since the Spaniards drew them.

In practical terms, it´s like if Mexico says overnight that the rest of the US territory should be attached to their country.

Sadly, it is likely to continue to be a source of tension between Venezuela and Guyana for many years to come.

But what are the real intentions in firing up this conflict again?

The dispute has also led to a supposed increased military activity in the region. Both countries have deployed troops to the border area. Supposedly, of course.

You can’t take whatever this sort of regime so literally.

People who know the entrails of the beast can say that know exactly what the real intentions are.

  1. To use the “war” as an excuse to instate martial law (in a year where a democratic election would wipe them off in a leveled playground) and subjugate whoever opposed the orders of the uniformed elite.
  2. Destroy whatever shadow of resistance and hope of a democratic change for the next 30 years, installing a new elite 2.0 to rule with an iron fist and wiping off the slightest desire for rebellion.
  3. To instate a defacto military-ruled regime, and the bus driver will quit because of “health reasons” or some other BS. Maybe another fake election to deceive those foolish enough to go.

The United States and the United Kingdom have been involved in mediation efforts to resolve the dispute. However, these efforts have so far been unsuccessful because there is no real intention to solve anything. They are looking for trouble, trying to throw a smoke curtain like the one used by the Cubans in this article.

In reality, this turns the opposition into cannon fodder.

The dispute has been treated as a major source of instability in the region, but common people in the streets know the truth.

If someday things get hot, the first recruits to draft will be the opposition youngsters. Just like Russia did: sending non-sympathizers as cannon fodder and getting in jail those who refused to invade Ukraine for “treason.”

Talking about killing two birds with a single shot…

It is unclear how this dispute will be resolved, but it is likely to continue to be a source of tension between the bus driver’s cronies (they are NOT the whole of Venezuela and don’t represent the citizens, nor the country as they were NOT democratically elected by the Venezuelans) and Guyana for many years to come.

The consequences of war in Venezuela

The Republic of Venezuela is facing an unprecedented economic and social crisis. In a period after inflation reached hyperinflation levels, when poverty inequality increased dramatically, the lack of basic services in some areas is still a reality. Power rationing has been in place at least once or twice per week, lasting up to 5 hours. (As a side note, people (yet) don´t need solar panels so badly; a battery rack with grid juice would be more than enough for these circumstances, and it wouldn’t impact too much the power bill)
