Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned on Monday of a US-backed plot to topple his close ally, Bolivian leader Evo Morales. The US "is not going to give Evo a honeymoon. A destabilizing plan is already under way to impede Evo from governing," Chavez said in a televised speech. "First to impede him from governing so that the Bolivian people will become disenchanted," Chavez said. "And later, to topple him." Chavez said that the US was orchestrating the alleged plot. Referring to recent rumors about such an attempt, he said, "it's not the Bolivian opposition speaking, it's the US empire speaking."
