Thief Steals Bolivia’s Gas

Bolivia’s neo-socialist leader, Evo Morales, today nationalized his country’s entire natural gas sector and ordered the military to occupy Bolivia’s energy fields.

After Morales was elected on a platform of anti-Americanism, establishing close relations with Castro’s Cuba and Chavez’s Venezuela, and legalizing the cultivation of coca, many observers predicted he’d "moderate" once he took office. His outright theft today of the nation’s entire gas sector gives a pretty good indication of  "moderate" intentions.

Naturally, many observers — particularly our good friends across the Atlantic – predicted that Hamas would "moderate" in power as well. And they still cling to that prediction, notwithstanding Hamas’ praise for the most recent suicide bombing in Israel.

It just seems impossible for some people to understand that there are radical political actors who actually mean what they say.
