#1 I am somewhat surprised that there isn't any article on the crisis in Bolivia so I will use this one. Does anyone beside me have an itch it can't scratch about whats going on in South America - Bolivia & Venezuela for example? It seems to me to be perfect breeding grounds for a Southern "terror" front especially if you read between the lines in what was going on in Bolivia. Similar symptons with other AlQ situations around the world absent the Islam stuff.

#2 Jack is Back - Our message to South America has been that we are pulling out and letting Castro have the lower continent. The perception comes from ou pulling back out of Panama. Now we plan to move out of PR, while we are extending ourselves into the ME.
In some ways it is better not to make each an every battle appear to be the US versus Castro in this hemisphere, but we have no local ally in South America.

#3 President Hugo Chavez issued a warning Saturday to anyone planning to sign a referendum on his presidency, saying their names would be registered and remembered "forever."

All he has to do now is set up gulag camps and change his last name to Stalin.

#4 I don't think that he has had time to create the type of secret police infrastructure that would be required for him to strike back at 20% of his population. He is popular with his lackey's and the peasants, but I would think that the middle class would be necessary for an effective clamp down.
