Crisis could end today

Reuters is reporting” that the Bolivian Congress will vote to reject President Carlos Mesa’s resignation offer.

I hope that turns out to be the case, and that the parties like MAS are forced to vote in support of Mesa. I also hope Mesa can win some of the concessions he is calling for from Evo Morales and the Santa Cruz elite.

It’s funny to me that Evo yesterday accused Mesa of using his resignation as a form of “blackmail.” What does Evo think all the blockades, protests, and strikes are that he orchestrates throughout the Andes? They are blackmail. He is guilty, too; far more guilty, in fact. I think it’s quite just that he’s gotten a taste of his own medicine.
