Bolivia is not descending Into Rogue State Status.

On October 28, 2013, The Wall Street Journal published an article by Mary Anastasia O’Grady entitled “Bolivia’s Descent Into Rogue State Status.”  A glance at the article is enough to understand why this lady cannot be taken seriously.

Peak Hypocrisy | U.S. Backed Organizations Exploit Bolivia Crisis

In their scathing “open letter” (whereby they appoint themselves judge, trial, jury and executioner – advising people that Evo Morales is essentially corrupt and has lost all support), The U.S. Democracy Centre states: The events of the past week represent something new rising in Bolivia. The people – who have now listened to many Morales


The Bolivian Morales Government Versus the Environmental “Movement”

Evo Morales is Bolivia’s first-ever Indigenous president. In his January 2006 inaugural speech, Morales’s focus was the years of discrimination against Indians, and he compared Bolivia to apartheid-era South Africa.
