Hah! In your face Shrubites.

Is it bad that I enjoyed reading how Bolivia, just one of the growing many, wants more control over their natural resources and is kicking outsiders, namely the US, to the curb?

Morales's announcement was expected, but his deployment of troops to gas fields was a strong statement in a region where governments are moving to block outside influence, particularly from the United States, and exert more control over the energy industry. Venezuela recently voided drilling contracts with private companies at 32 oil fields, demanding new contracts that give the state oil company a 60 percent stake. Ecuador is finalizing a law that could limit excessive profits by foreign crude producers.
That's what he and his cronies get for trying to be the narcissistic vapid bullies they are.
