Bolivian President Evo Morales, visiting Venezuela on Sunday, had some strong things to say about U.S. aid.
He complained that it is always conditioned on "the privatization of our natural resources, the privatization of state resources, or finally they ask us to fight terrorism … but there is no terrorism."
He added, "The terrorists ask us to fight terrorism in order to give aid. For them, the terrorists are the social movements.
How can we accept conditioned aid?"
