Evo going crazy?

Is it just me, or accusing the banana producers of drug trafficking (here), while allowing each member of the coca federation to grow one cato (1600 square meters) of the illegal crop (here) is nothing but a savage hipocrisy?

ps: more on the Constituent Assembly later.

Would you think that Evo is learning that all his comments have more relevance now?

What is your intake in trying to get rid of the DEA ?

Would you go back to your country?

Please refer to a later post for this question: it seems the comment was meant to hurt the industry, nothing but a vendetta.

On the DEA issue, i think Morales will use a double discourse to promise to get rid of them to the cocaleros on the one hand and promise to the embassy he will maintain them on the other.

Finally, I would love to go back and try to undo years and years of anachronistic economic policies. Personal responsability matters, perhaps now more than ever, in Bolivia. Don't forget the menace that Evo poses to democracy. Give it time, though...
