    The Exxon deal is the life insurance that Guyana signed to protect its territory from Venezuelan aggression. From this perspective, it’s almost futile to fight about the financial details of the Stabroek Block deal. The cost that Guyana would otherwise have to spend on defence efforts need to be taken in consideration. De facto US territorial protection will also allow for more foreign investment to enter the country. Something that had not happened in fifty years of independence due to political instability and the constant threats from Venezuela.

    The Exxon oil deal will in hindsight be seen as invaluable and it is time that the nation acknowledges that only the US has the power to guarantee the territorial integrity of Guyana from Venezuelan aggression.

    I concur fully with the above views of Dr. B. In fact, it had been a mistake years ago for Guyana to initially give oil leases to Canadian companies whose Govt. did nothing when the Venezuelan warships chased away their drilling ships. With all the US’s warts and boils, it is best placed to develop and protect Guyana and its resources.Since they didn’t like the US at the time, Guyana’s leaders could have instead awarded the leases to the UK, which would have brought their own warships to protect the drilling ships;but no, that would have meant relying on one’s former colonial masters.

    It defies one’s imagination as to why Guyana’s political leaders over the years most of whom have traveled outside the country and presumably can read, haven’t been able to see the real world as it is. It is naive to believe the world outside the country is fair, when they are not even fair to their own population.

    The US used to be the big strong, crude unsophisticated cousin, with lots of cash, never invited to the family BBQ but any time someone threatens to kick your ass, the US was the one to call, that might be gone for ever.

    Wally, who is replacing the US as major power in the Caribbean and South America? The Chinese do not have a military reach into this region. Or am I missing something?

      Chinese owns the biden crooks, they have them in their pockets, that’s how they operate,and demanding everyone who collected must start paying back, NOW! BTW take a look at Jamaica.don’t forget china needs cheap oil ,lots, they will play both sides

    It is well-known ploy of nations like Venezuela to stir up their citizens against an outside foe when they are facing internal unrest. Maduro is a failed president who is trying to regain the support of the Venezuelan people, who have shown clearly that they don’t want him!
    Venezuela should have not one blue saki, not one cuirass, not one rice grain, not a blade of grass! Maduro would like to bully Guyana into giving up her wealth. Let’s keep the eyes of the world on his desperate attempts to snatch away our future. Praise God for rocks like Sir Shridath Ramphal!
