Guatemala Military engages BTV at Sarstoon Island

The BTV (Belize Territorial Volunteers) make their trip to the Southern parts of Belize every year, and this year they decided to visit the Sarstoon Island that is well within Belizean territory. Guatemala however with it’s always on aggression mode, not only came into Belizean waters but assaulted Belizeans by blocking their passage and attempted ram and push boats into Guatemalan territory to  engage even more. I am hearing words also that the Guatemalan military was apparently giving guided tours on the Island, what kind of shit is that?

All this in front of the OAS observers, let’s see what happens from here. I’m not holding my breath tho as history proves that the people in position to act always take Guatemala’s side. Treason much anyone?
