Bolivia Fires General Over U.S. Destruction of Missiles

From Fox News/AP:
LA PAZ, Bolivia - Outgoing President Eduardo Rodriguez fired Bolivia's army chief on Tuesday over his decision to have 28 Chinese shoulder-launched missiles destroyed in the United States.

Gen. Marcelo Antezana later appeared on Bolivian television to say Rodriguez had made a "bad interpretation" of his role in the October destruction of the missiles, which led to accusations of treason by Evo Morales, then a presidential candidate.

Morales - who later won elections in December - revealed the destruction of the missiles by the United States and said it had left Bolivia with almost no air defense.
It was a revelation that Bolivia has "almost no air defense?" A revelation to whom? All the Bolivians who believe two World War I bi-planes and a kite constitute an air defense?
