Bolivia gas under state control

This morning, Bolivia's new president Evo Morales announced the first step in his following the Hugo Chavez plan. He sent troops to take over corporate-owned natural gas fields, announcing that they are all now owned by the state, and will take the profits and set the prices at the government level (read: he gets the cash, now). This is likely to drive up costs for companies which provide heating fuels for the Western world. Yes, we have another leftist goofball with guns trying to control fuel supplies and thereby rule the world.

Can we stop pointing the finger at the gas & petroleum companies, now?

And, can we kick those damned eco-wackos out and start tapping into the natural gas we have under the Rocky Mountains, please?
