    I was gonna post it a few days ago, but wanted to see how the situation played out for a bit. Obviously it's a bit of a mess, but my understanding of Bolivian history is - no offense intended if you're reading, Jaime Moreno - that Bolivian history is best characterized, overall, as a 'bit of a mess'.

    "Nationalism also plays a key role. The idea of selling off Bolivia's gas to the US was always certain to anger the president's left-wing opponents, fearful of being exploited by the "gringos" to the north. "


    Damn Gringos. :)
