The U.S., in its own quirky way, promotes democracy and fights drugs

This from RT.com, not mentioned in American news, “Bolivia slams US over ‘irrefutable evidence’ of meddling:”

Bolivia has “concrete evidence” that the US is plotting to destabilize the Latin American nation, Minister Juan Ramon Quintana said. Proof of US “harassment” of the Bolivian government will be handed over to President Obama, he added.

Mistake, dude, Mistake. Even if Obama had real power in these matters, he would not use it to help you.

Also, in a move that only highlights the duplicity of my ugly, ugly native land, the U.S. last year condemned Bolivia for not cooperating an international efforts to stem the flow of drugs.

President Morales denied the findings, accusing the US of hypocrisy and calling the illicit drugs trade with Latin America the US’ “best business.”

That’s a killing offense. Morales is a short-timer.

Indeed, as I noted in the post below, the U.S. is protecting the poppy crop in Afghanistan. Americans are not prepared to hear such things,of course. But the condemnation of Bolivia was nothing more than a way of saying “we don’t like your government, so screw your democracy.” And now Minister Juan Ramon Quintana is accusing us of just that. The U.S. is doing what it always does, working underground through black ops to undermine the Bolivian government and restore the oligarchy.

Since Americans are not prepared to hear that, I might as well drop the other shoes as well. While we still enjoy many freedoms here at home (velvet glove), abroad we promote fascism (iron fist).

    Bolivia’s Chaco War (1932-1935) with Paraguay claimed 100,000 lives. This global proxy battle was between Standard Oil (Bolivia) and Shell (Paraguay). The 1938 Treaty of Buenos Aires, awarded 2/3 of the Chaco region to Paraguay. Most of the proven oil and gas, however, was discovered in the 1/3 of the Chaco retained by Bolivia — 2nd largest natural gas reserves on the Continent. Neo-cons dream big, you have to give them that at least.
