I want to add on the case of a low probability of conflict. The Essequibo is mostly flooded jungle which makes an invasion campaign very unlikely. The terrain is a really big no-go. The army of Venezuela is also debilitated as it showed in the conflict against FARC in Arauca in 2022.

Hmm... sorry to be a bit critical. We fully get that the Spanish Word of the Week at the end is supposed to be a bit more light-hearted than the rest of the article. However, the end of this particular article felt a bit out of place to us - it almost sounds like “an actual shooting war breaking out would be nothing to worry about - as we would cover it here on PWS and also we would come up with a consistent spelling.”

Sure, you didn't write that exactly and maybe we are just in a super nitpicky mood, but it did come across a bit this way and we wanted to at least let you know. ^^'

Anyway, thank you so very much for covering this topic at all - we had no idea about any of this whatsoever! 💜
