Ask Admiral

BBC NEWS | Americas | Bolivia admiral denies coup plan Bolivia is a landlocked country, but are involved in a very old and bitter dispute with Chile over access to the sea. Chile nicked their sea ports after one of the regular and bloody territorial wars between a group of latin american countries. This one was in 1879 and they still argue about it and Bolivia still maintains a navy, mostly small craft based on Lake Titicaca. They have one sea going ship which is based in Argentina. So I guess the Admiral has to find something to occupy his time.
