      it certainly is horrific…
      we become desensitised to the mayhem that occurs everyday around the world.

    Bolivia trying to get a fair deal for lithium..

    ‘This year, Bolivia surprised some analysts when it entered into a $1.3 billion deal with German company ACI for extraction and the manufacturing and marketing of batteries.

    smarter than Mr Bridges whose Anardako deal gave NZ 40% of..PROFITS!
