Bidenomics has been a bust and Bidenplomacy has been nothing short of a disaster. Recently, Biden claimed that the reason Hamas attacked Israel is because he, Joe Biden was about to bring peace to the Middle East.
But, strangely enough you cannot name one country Biden has brokered peace for in the Middle East. In fact you have to go back to Jimmy Carter to find a Democrat that was able to broker a peace deal and that was between Egypt and Israel.
Yet, Donald Trump whom the Democrats have called a war monger negotiated diplomatic relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan, and Morocco who all recently opened diplomatic relations with Israel.
There were no new conflicts between the United States and anyone during the Trump years. So far in three years Russia invaded Ukraine, Hamas invaded Israel and Venezuela is close to invading Guyana.
Miami Herald reported:
“Venezuelans going to the polls Sunday will be asked to answer an unusually provocative question: Should their government be given a blank check to invade neighboring Guyana, and wrest away three-quarters of its oil-rich territory?”
“The question will be on the ballot in a five-part referendum that, among other things, would grant Maduro special powers to invade Guyana and create a new Venezuelan state encompassing 74% of English-speaking Guyana’s current landmass. The new area would be called Guayana Esequiba.”
Some see it as a mere political ploy, though many Guyanese citizens see the threat as real and fear the loss of their identity and citizenship.
“’Clearly Maduro has domestic constituencies in mind, but I think when you weigh the number of negatives of annexation, Maduro would be crazy to risk all of those negatives to take 74% of Guyana’, said Ivelaw Griffith, a senior associate with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington and a former vice chancellor of the University of Guyana, who is a security expert in the region. ‘That’s not a small hunk of land’.”
Neighbor Brazil announced that it was increasing its military presence along its northern border amid fears that the long-standing dispute could become a war.
The border dispute between Guyana and Venezuela goes back to the 19th century and escalated after Guyana began discovering oil on its territory a few years ago.
The dispute is before the United Nations’ International Court of Justice, where Guyana has asked it to rule that the 1899 decision is ‘valid and binding.’
“‘We’ve asked them to indicate that [the vote] is illegal for Venezuela to proceed with the referendum in its current form’, said Carl Greenidge, a former Guyanese foreign minister who has been representing Guyana in the long-running dispute. ‘The questions, as formulated, can be seen or interpreted as intended to give Venezuela a blueprint, or endorsement for taking action’, Greenidge said, describing the whole move by his Spanish-speaking neighbor as “completely absurd.”
The Bolivarian socialist regime of Venezuela has already launched an aggressive propaganda campaign over the news outlets it controls: “The Essequibo is ours.”
Associated Press reported:
“Guyana sees the referendum as a case of annexation and asked the International Court of Justice on Nov. 14 to halt parts of the vote. The court has not issued a decision, but even if it rules against Venezuela, Maduro’s government intends to hold the election Sunday.
