Winds Of Change On Bolivia

Okay, really, I'm not kidding... well, okay, you forced me into it. Winds Of Change has another bang-up post on Bolivia, full of linkety goodness, including accusations that the demonstrations are being not only bankrolled by Venezuela's Hugo Chavez but the local thugs are going around making sure the locals demonstrate... or else.

The military appears to be acting on its own "until full nationalization of the hydrocarbons industry". This is weird, because previously we read that the Bolivian officer corps consists primarily of Cruceños, who would tend to be against nationalization.
