The US is behind the current drop in oil prices as it is aiming to undermine the economies of large petroleum producers Russia and Venezuela, Bolivian President Evo Morales told RT.

In his interview with RT’s Spanish-language channel, Morales said that it’s was “a pity” that Washington remains on a “wrong course” by continuing to use sanctions against its political rivals.

“[The US thinks] we are living 200, 300 or 500 years ago, instead of today. But all the past should remain in the past. The US should realize this,” he told RT’s Spanish channel.

America is acting like other large empires did for centuries as they “disseminated strife and hatred inside and outside, wishing to establish political control over other nations and to plunder them economically,” Morales said, in an apparent reference to the Spanish conquistadors’ invasions of Latin America.

The Bolivian president also slammed Europe for being “US accomplices” in implementing sanctions worldwide.

“We must think of a way to liberate Europe, and just think that they used to be invaders of our countries,” he said.

Morales said that President Obama “should stop imposing sanctions” and pay more attention to America’s internal problems, such as “abolishing capital punishment, or to think of new laws to combat racial discrimination.”

He described the US president a “discriminated Afro-American” who himself is “discriminating against migrants.”

“Of course, now that America can’t overthrow a president by a violent military coup, it starts to view the option of economic sanctions. I am sure that the oil prices plunge was provoked by the US to undermine the Russian and Venezuelan economies. This is my opinion,” Morales said.

He urged Moscow and Caracas to “join their efforts” in countering Washington’s “aggressive policies.”

Morales said that current oil prices, which have reached their lowest since 2009, are the result of “temporary difficulties.”

“I am sure the US aggression related to oil price cuts will not last long. Is $60 per barrel a feasible price? Washington is not interested in this. All the US is interested in is an economic assault on some countries to overthrow their presidents. But they will not succeed in this task,” he said.

The oil price has fallen from $100 per barrel in June to $60 per barrel in December, due to a drop in global demand and increased oil production in the US.

Many observers believe that low oil prices and Western sanctions imposed on Moscow over its union with Crimea and alleged involvement in the Ukrainian crisis have delivered a painful blow to Russia’s economy.

A decline in confidence in the country’s economy prompted investors to sell off Russian assets, which in turn saw the ruble plunging over 40 percent against the dollar since the start of the year.
Yep, no big secret there.

Instead of celebrating cheaper gas, the Yanks should be just a wee bit more concerned that the price can be manipulated up or down so easily.

The game is rigged.
“We must think of a way to liberate Europe, and just think that they used to be invaders of our countries,” he said.

This is the truth, and it's coming from the hemisphere's only indigenous leader. And where was the mainstream media when white minority rule ended in Bolivia in 2006? Why does no one seem to realize that Bolivia finally has an indigenous president? He's on his third term as president of Bolivia, amounts to a Nelson Mandela figure for Bolivia's Indians and nobody has ever heard of him.

He seems like a good, honest leader, who is looking out for his people's interests and those of the region. Naturally, the Western axis will want him deposed.

Leftists should be worshipping this man. But, alas, they're more interested in indulging in red herrings.
So good to see more international leaders calling out the US/West on their bull shit.
It's starting to snowball. You can only go around the world killing everybody for so long before the world starts to question it.

That time has come.

We're witnessing the end of an empire in our lifetimes.

Fascinating stuff.
I just wish that guy trim his wig or get a better one

yep. the only thing holding them up is the western entertainment media. I honestly believe that.

People can't really see the full reality when they are hooked on hollywood smut and petty entertainment.

dropping oil prices is not working as these prices cannot be sustained for very long without domestic oil producers within the US/WEST feeling the heat.

Also sanctioning Russia will just give Russia an excuse to nationalize or subsidize key industries making them more self sufficient.

they can't do anything at this point because traditionally they would financially sabotage a country and then the unwashed masses would blame their leader for all their troubles. in the age of information and an educated russian population, this age old trick did not work.
Incas don't go bald guys.

Just sayin'.
