  Coup Season II. Or, "It's beginning to look a lot like Cuba..."
Hat tip to Bolivian President Evo Morales: if you're serious about not kowtowing to the United States, you might as well go big or go home.

Or, in this case, nationalize your huge natural gas industry. Oh, and evict a multinationals while you're at it. With armed soldiers.

A gutsy move, to be sure. And if Bolivia is able to control the profits from its natural gas reserves, that's a lot of money for infrastructure, schools, health care and development. But man, Pat Robertson will be pissed.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
