Videos from "Failed US-Led Coup in Bolivia" After Partnership With Russia, Elon Musk Suspected Due to Tweet On Lithium

A coup in Bolivia was thwarted. Strong online sentiments link the failed coup to the United States-led Biden administration CIA and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, following an old Tweet on X where he said he and the US Government can coup any country they like, after a user warned against interfering in Evo Bolivia for cheap/free lithium.

Videos from the coup showed an armored vehicle breaking into the presidential palace and military police forming a barricade at the door.

A second video showed the brave Bolivia president’s faceoff with army commanding general Juan José Zúñiga, where he orders him to withdraw his forces immediately, which the general refuses.

Watch below:

The coup failed and President Luis Arce emerged victorious, aided by the overwhelming support of the people. José Zúñiga was subsequently arrested and led out.

“Brothers, I want to thank you. You have mobilized quickly throughout the country… No one can take away the democracy we’ve earned in the streets through the blood of the Bolivian people!”

Why The United States Is A Top Suspect Behind Bolivia’s Failed Coup

The US has been fingered as the force behind the attempted coup in Bolivia. Bolivia’s President Arce had recently entered a partnership with Russia, where they agreed on joint undertakings regarding the mining and production of lithium batteries.

Arce referred to Russia’s administration led by Putin as a “friendly government” and was thankful for the support received.

“We also need to implement the project on the production of lithium-based batteries in Bolivia with a Russian company; we will work also in other spheres of cooperation between Russia and Bolivia. We have the rich agenda. “We are glad to share our experience, our projects, and dreams we will be able to implement jointly”, he said in a statement.

Before their joint agreement, Russia’s Uranium One Group, entered an agreement with Bolivia, to construct a semi-industrial pilot plant with Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology in the Uyuni salt flat to produce 14,000 tons of lithium carbonate per year.

Bolivia, a country located in South America, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS) in 2022, has the largest deposit of lithium in the world, with 21 million tons of lithium reserves.

Lithium is the basic material used in the production of lithium batteries used in the production of electric vehicles and other renewable energy systems.

Why Elon Musk Is Allegedly Involved In Bolivia’s Failed Coup

According to online records, Elon Musk is suspected of being a party to the coup attempt in Bolivia due to a tweet in 2020 where he said he and the US government will coup whoever (country) they want.

Musk made the statement after an X, formerly Twitter, user told him that “the U.S. government organizing a coup against Evo Morales in Bolivia so you could obtain the lithium there” wasn’t in the best interest of the people, following Musk’s advice to the US Government on another stimulus package not in the best interest of the people.

Lithium is regarded as the new oil, fueled by the increasing drive to green energy and demand for electric vehicles.

Tesla, located in the United States, and the largest manufacturer of electric vehicles (EV) in the world, is limited by the availability and cost of lithium to produce its batteries.

According to CarbonCredits, Tesla needs $374 billion to invest in the mining and refining of lithium in order to meet its goal of producing 20 million EVs every year by 2030.
