Bolivians Protest Country Wide After US led Coup Against Bolivia and Evo Morales's Topples Another Democratically Elected Government.
By Raz Putin
Chalk up another successful regime change by the USS Empire. Yes indeed the Empire has struck back against the very effective, highly popular and democratically elected government of Evo Morales forcing them from power at gunpoint.
Morales and his government had in their 14 years in power reversed the absolute poverty that had plagued Bolivia for decades by increasing the country's GDP by more than 50%. This is unequalled in any other South American country. Morales successes include reducing the poverty rate to 35% from a staggering 60% (before he came to power in 2006). This was accomplished by sound economic policies being applied , such as reinvesting monies gained from Bolivia's resources into Bolivia's domestic economy.
Bolivia is a country with many precious resources one of which is lithium other resources include nickel, coal, uranium, cobalt, zinc, diamonds, and a plethora of other petrochemicals.
Morales's government had been actively pursuing a deal with potential international investors to develop it's highly sought after lithium resources.
After signing a deal with the Chinese government and the German government in principal to develop Bolivia’s lithium resources Bolivia’s future appeared to be getting even brighter however as the deal with the German’s soured so did the political climate in Bolivia. Morales’s government was plunged into a chaotic battle between pro government forces and the extreme far right fascists who had previously enjoyed their place on top of the heap of Bolivia’s population before Morales’s pro-indigenous government swept into power in 2006 after years of protests by the indigenous majority.
Those wealthy Bolivian mestizos that had been running the show on behalf of multinational corporations and for their own benefit. All to absolute detriment of the vast majority of Bolivians jumped at the chance to reclaim their place.
One only need take a look at the stone age techniques employed in their mining industries to see how the people of Bolivia have been exploited by the former ruling class. Men and women who work underground with primitive hand tools and no safety equipment for pennies an hour. That is just the tip of the massive iceberg of the wealth imbalance that had always been the case.
Bolivia’s history speaks volumes and one can better understand the situation looking backwards in Bolivian history.
The Atacama War fought by Chile and backed by the Rothschilds saw Bolivia lose it’s access to the Pacific Ocean and as well a large portion of the petrochemical rich portion of the Atacama desert to Chile’s aggression in the beginning of the last century. This annexation of Bolivia’s coast had major repercussions for Bolivia and it’s peoples.
Bolivia was named after Simon Bolivar “The Liberator” who’s fight against the colonial Spanish was highly successful in ridding South America of the Spanish imperialists and eventually led to the creation of independent states such as Columbia, Peru, Bolivia etc.. Bolivar was immortalized in South America for his incredible achievements.
Unfortunately South America never realized it’s complete independence as soon after Bolivar’s death more imperialists came to colonize and exploit South America's resources and enslave it’s people. The Spanish, The Portuguese and other European nations returned with a vengeance. Along with the old world came the United States and it’s New World Order. Central banks were set up by the Rothschilds and funded political and militaristic campaigns to steal back what had been lost to Bolivar and his revolution and to ensure that no real power would ever challenge the international bankers control again.
So it and has been in Bolivia and throughout South America you need only skim the surface of the history of South America to know that is true.
The U.S.A has had a long interest in keeping Bolivia destabilized like so many other banana republics it has controlled through various tentacles such as the OAS (Organization of American States). The U.S.A and it’s recent interventions through the war on drugs had harmed Bolivia and Bolivian culture. The attempted eradication of the coca plant for one. The coca plant from which the famous brand Coca Cola was derived is actually a staple to the Indigenous people of Bolivia. It is also the main ingredient in cocaine. However Bolivians as well other Andean people have long consumed the coca plant before the creation of cocaine the addictive drug. Coca has many medicinal benefits much like cannabis. The Coca leaf contains many beneficial enzymes and is a good source of vitamin C. Coca tea or mate is excellent for energy, altitude sickness etc. Consider the Altiplano of Bolivia encompasses a huge area and sits at 12,000 ft on average.
The U.S.A employed much pressure on Bolivia to stop the cultivation of the coca leaf because of it’s obvious detrimental by product (cocaine). Can you imagine telling the Chinese to stop cultivating rice. How ridiculous and that is what the U.S.A attempted to do.
Which brings back to the last few years of Bolivian history and it’s attempt to free itself from the multinational corporations who have long been enslaving Bolivia.
Evo Morales was the best of all things for the Bolivian people. I have read recent diatribes by the CFR and the OAS’s backed publications claiming that communism and socialism have once again failed and “democracy” will again save the day. Bolivia has been a third world nation and under Morales government had succeeded in raising that poor country up from the ashes of it’s colonial past. Now that’s what I call democracy by and for the people.
Although Donald Trump’s administration did not create the initial conditions I speak of here, he inherited the situation from previous US administrations. Still by his words and deeds Donald Trump has bloody his hands and hands of every American with Bolivian blood.
