No surprise here. Yet another example of the debased nature of Evo and his MAS henchmen.

Billy the Squid - are you defending Evo because you hope an increase in supply will lower your price? I was wondering what caused your delusions.

The evil Bush wants Diego as an advisor on how to kill more Iraqi insurgents. It seems Bush is finding Iraqi insurgents in Bolivia. Diego the silly would be the perfect advisor for the evil Bush. Since Bush granted asylum to Bolivian terrorists because he is recruiting them for Dick Morris's CIA death squads that will target Bolivian police and judges because the best way to invade Bolivia is to create anarchy.

Hey Diego The Silly, Bush is spending $700 BILLION on armies to conquer the world if you become the evil Bush's advisor and tell him how to rob Bolivian banks he will make you rich. Bush has 30 pieces of silver waiting for you.

Billy the Squid, I have come to the conclusion that no one is as delusional as you and that you do not believe the things that you write. I think that you are just lonely and that you are looking for attention. And you write similarly to my other 'friend' here who likes to create aliases. In any case, although your reticence may be in the best interests of public safety, it is still sad. Maybe you could increase your level of human interaction by becoming a taxi driver, a bartender or a barber. Good luck.

The Chapare was a protected National Park till Morales took over this park to plant Coca, why? because it is uded for factories that make cocaine, USAID was expelled fron this area because of this, also members of the F.A.R.C. have a close relation with Morales that still has his coca plantations.
He made sure that no "extrangers" eyes are in the Chapare, rven if every Bolivian chews coca or makes Mate we can never use all the coca that is beonf planted by his people.
It is a minority that chews coca that gives bath smell, ruins teeth. Only with Morales that members of his party want to push this use, even they want to give to children instead of milk and bread.

Evo Morales doesn't care one bit about his 'own people', the indigenous people. But those people are not smart enough to realize, that after 2.5 years in office, Evo has done little to materially benefit them in any substantive manner. It will be the same for blacks in the U.S. if Obama (God forbid) is elected.

Evo is a stooge of Chavez. He's in league with Correa, Chavez, Ahmadinijad and Castro (such nice friends) to try and diminish the influence of the U.S. to the detriment of their own people. Third World socialism never works.
