The Bodyguards

That Hugo Chavez is Evo Morale’s mentor comes to no surprise. Hugo Chavez and perennial dictator Fidel Castro have groomed Morales for long time, and Chavez has invested million of Venezuelan petrodollars in the Bolivian leader. But Chavez´s protectorate of Evo Morales is showing to be a bit obsessive. After their last summit in Venezuela he provided Morales with a complimentary armed security force to escort him all the way to Spain.

Spanish authorities where dismayed when they met the armed guard in Madrid. The bodyguards where allowed to enter Spain under two conditions, no weapons and no accompanying Morales.
