Venezuela on Friday said it has detained a US-operated oil exploration ship sent from Guyana in disputed waters off its coast, in a fresh border spat between the two neighbors.

Venezuela's foreign ministry said in a statement that the vessel was detected and intercepted because "it was carrying out illegal activities" within an ocean border area claimed by Caracas.

Guyana earlier said that a Venezuelan navy ship had confronted the Teknik Perdana on Thursday as it explored off the coast of Essequibo.

The ship, contracted to Texas-based Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, was ordered to sail to Margarita Island in Venezuela, the statement from Guyana's foreign ministry said.

Of course, it's not a US ship. It's registered in Panama and the company that owns it is based in Singapore.

It's just being rented by a US company.

Just like in the 1980s when Col. Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi declared the Mediterranean Sea in and around the Gulf of Sidra to be Libyan territorial waters and "declared a line of death" to whom ever crossed the line without an invitation from the Libyan government, the President should give them one or two weeks to release the US contracted ship or else suffer the consequences.

If George W. Bush was still the USA president, do you think that Venezuela would have dared to detain a “US-operated” ship? Not on your life!

But just like Iran, Egypt, Libya, Syria, & Russia, other countries plainly see that our “dear leader” – Prez B.O. – is a timid, weak, unassertive, and indecisive phony, so these hostile countries do not hesitate to flex their puny muscles and push US around.

Good! We need to stop trying to bully everyone in the world and respect other nations. It's no surprise so many nations hate us when we do whatever the heck we want to in other countries.

Did China ever give us that ship back that they took away from Bush even after he begged them please give me the ship. Ya know Bush was a woar president, started a couple of woars and we are still paying for them. A great woar president I tell you.

Sounds like a chess match involving a third party that should not be involved but is used to involve others for a political purpose.

Of course there are details the article doesn't mention: "The ship sails under a Panamanian flag and is owned by Singaporean marine surveying company."
