    If Morales should get the court ruling in his favour then his next target will be the Amazon. One of the tributaries starts in Bolivia and so the Bolivian Government (read as Morales hip pocket) needs to be compensated for the use of the river by Brazil.
    Oh hold on a sec. He was Lula was going to build a dam in Brazil that was going to flood land on both sides of the border. Brazil had to pay compensation for the loss of arable land caused by the flooding. IBAMA stopped the project dead due to the environmental impact of the dam. Bolivia then claimed for the loss of income from the fishing that would have been available and planned for if the dam had gone ahead. In his benevolent nature Lula, on behalf of the Brazilian Nation, agreed to the payment.
    No wonder Morales thinks he can get compensation from Chile.

    Coke sniffer Morales is starting to sound like CFK over the FI, only difference being that the latter refused to present her case to the ICJ.

    Wonder how much of the compensation (which was utterly ridiculous) went into Lula's account ...

    The Bolivian Government (lining Morales pocket) will soon demand to be compensated for the use of the Pacific Ocean, into which flows rivers originating in Bolivian springs.

    The poor dears, too much coca chewing.
