A conflict with Guyana will provide an excuse for American intervention to spank Venezuela. It's very likely that that is the plan, making Guyana a helpless pawn.
Could Guyana be a beneficiary of a conflict that involves USA and Venezuela? My understanding is borders issued could be settled in a war. So if in theory Venezuela gets its ass kicked and has to surrender in a war then the border issue can be settled once and for all. Is this too far fetched logic?
