  •  Wait, Bush is really talking about war in Bolivia? (4.00)
    Has he seen a map? Does he know what kind of terrian he will be sending the troops into? Does he not realize everybody and their dog in the SA will want a shot at the USA if we send in troops? The 'insurgency' in Iraq will look a war exercise compared to fighting indigenous people on their hometurf (jungles, impassable canyons filled with rain forests, sheer mountain drops,)? This not an option.

    Other countries in SA are chomping at the bit for a little payback against Bush, this would be the only reason they need. Only Columbia might come to our aid, but that's because they are using our troops.

    If Bush attacks Bolivia, it will be the fall of the American empire. Iran will laugh, North Korea will giggle, and the rest of the world will just slowly shake it's head.

    Oh side note, Bush might also want to check with China before he rattles the saber anymore at Morales, he might be shocked to hear what they have to say.

    •  I don't think a shoot-em-up war is going (none)
      to happen. It might just be a matter of lending support to overthrow a democratically elected government, as has happened more than once in the past. A few mercenaries, a little cash, an exploding aircraft...

      Do not feel safe. The poet remembers.
      You can kill one, but another is born.
      The words are written down, the deed, the date.
