Bolivian Coup Comes Less Than a Week After Morales Stopped Multinational Firm's Lithium Deal "Bolivia's lithium belongs to the Bolivian people. Not to multinational corporate cabals." Now we understand what were the reasons behind the coup... As usual, not a desire for more democracy, just a desire...

The US and some European countries have been using the Ukraine to destabilize and weaken Russia, namely by having tried to prevent Russia using its naval facilities in Crimea . :? That puzzles me Sertorio. What you describe as "Russia's naval facilities in Crimea" were o...
