Just Breaking: 'Bolivia is an independent country!'

...rather than a resource stockpile for corporate looting as it has previously been confused. This according to a British Court of Appeals which unanimously told Telecom Italia that Bolivia's state assets held in British banks are protected under "sovereign immunity", so Telecom Italia will just have to suck up recent nationalization of its shares in Bolivia's telecom company Entel. I bet Italia is beginning to really regret their refusal of Evo's original offers to buyout their Entel shares. "How dare that Indian call our bluff!"

I wonder if ExxtortionMobil is seeing this and realizing their chances of freezing PDVSA's assets in Britain also doesn't stand a snowball's chance in the Burny Place.
