Is that all you've got?

US Deputy of Hemispheric Affairs Sean McCormack called Evo's expulsion of US ambassador Goldberg a "grave error". Goldberg ominously declared as he left that there would be "serious consequences". Oh no, this looks bad...

So today, President Bush put Bolivia on the "blacklist" of non-cooper-aterous bad guys in the mini-GWOT, the "War on Drugs", along with Venezuela and Burma. Take that! You're on the list. Possibly no more anti-narcotics aid you weren't too happy with in the first place. And we are pulling out our spies... I mean, Peace Corps workers (apologies to the decent ones out there) as well as telling our citizens to get on overpriced flights to Peru! And the Mormons too! Ya didn't see that one coming, it's gotta hurt...

Yes, let's laugh at Bush and don't forget how happy Condi was with her new guitar from Evo before she figured out it was made of coca leaf. hahahaha. You have to hand it to Evo. He sure can set one up.

Also, that Bolivian civil war everyone was looking forward to is not happening. As RickB said of the coup plot over at Ten Percent, "Epic Fail".

There is an international online sign on statement for democracy in Bolivia and against US interference. It has people from a wide range of countries signed on - please add your name, circulate it so ordinary people and organsations can join the dignified unanimous statement of Unasur and take a stand against US-backed fascism
