It's Tin Foil Hat time
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 09:22 PM by rhiannon55
Paraguay borders Bolivia, and Bolivia has oil. We've all heard Bushbots demonize Bolivia's indigenous, popularly elected president Evo Morales--a president who tries to take care of his people and thus, would never be an American puppet. Morales wants to nationalize his country's oil, but doesn't have the resources to extract it. You know Bushco wants that oil and probably has a plan to get it.

Edited to add: Bush has apparently bought land in Paraguay.

I wonder if that "ranch" is located near the Bolivian border? And isn't it a really large piece of land?

It could be a staging ground.

I'm just sayin'. :tinfoilhat:

What do you guys think?

1. But with what military?
We're stretched so thin in Bush's other misadventures, we couldn't fight a hot dog vendor right now.

4. What is it about South America that draws facists on the run?
What is the siren song that causes them to flee to South America when their governments fall apart?

6. Bolivia is land locked and only
has natural gas, which it pays a penalty to ship across its neighbors territory.

They aren't flush in out petro dollars like hugo, so the chavista agenda will not flourish with out a large source of funding. IE citgo.

Bolivia is in a different boat all together.
