    Look at what is happening, and then ask “cui bono?”....
    Consider: this fairy-tale came from a few Paraguayan newspapers (I'd bet citing un-named sources) then picked up by anti-Morales Bolivian media; while Paraguayan officials denied any concerns over Bolivia's modernization efforts; and Pres. Morales has never indicated anything but friendship and mutual respect toward his honorable, respectful non-puppet neighbors.
    What is clear to me is that this is a divisive effort on the part of some person(s) and/or government wanting to create conflict between the two nations and their respective leaders.
    Considering the history of the Americas, let's think: is there any nation that comes to mind as having a divided and conquered Latin America as part of its overall hegemonic hemispheric policy? That has a proven history of creating coups, assassinations and dictators and overturning governments wanting more self-control, more control over their natural resources, and less privatization?
    Does any country at all come to mind???
    Could you have found out 'cui bono'?
    I'd love to investigate the roots of this 'much ado about nothing' dust-up of a story intended to divide. And I'd like to find out who pays those who further that division.
    And then to expose them for what they are--shills, at the very minimum.
