Bolivia pulls ambassadors from Spain,Italy,France

|Blog ---
LA PAZ,- The Bolivian government Friday " temporarily" recalled its ambassadors to Spain, France and Italy to protest those countries' refusal earlier this month to allow Bolivian President Evo Morales' plane to enter their airspace, a top official said.

"Recalling the ambassadors is a decision that was taken within the framework of the summit of the Southern Common Market ( Mercosur), the bloc that decided to call all its ambassadors to those nations, to protest what happened to President Morales," Bolivian Communications Minister Amanda Davila told reporters.

Mercosur nations, including Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela and Uruguay, gathered after Morales' plane was denied access to those countries' airspace on July 2 to condemn the European nations for violating international laws on presidential immunity.

The minister however said the move did not mean Bolivia was breaking off diplomatic relations with the European countries.

President Morales met Friday with ambassador Jean Pol Guevara to France, Carmen Almendras to Spain, and Antolin Ayaviri to Italy.

Morales s plane was denied access to those countries on rumors that the plane was carrying U.S. intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden. It made an emergency landing in Vienna, Austria.

All the European nations have offered apologies, though none have officially explained their actions, as Bolivia has demanded.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
