Chavez and Castro: the Bolivarian Revolution in action in Bolivia

Latin Business Chronicle:
"Nowadays, seeing Venezuelan helicopters flying around Bolivian skies, or seeing the Venezuelan ambassador and his Cuban colleague actively taking part in official events is not surprising at all. However, these are unprecedented facts in Bolivian history and verify the intrusion of Venezuela and Cuba in the internal affairs of the country."

The old Cold War pattern repeats itself. Cuban, and now Venezuelan, "advisors" nosing about in the internal affairs of another once-sovereign nation. An interesting report by a former Bolivian legislator.
