CDE's move of its corporate HQ to Chicago appears more astute the longer I look at it.  If you were an Idaho mining  company concerned about having your silver mine siezed by Morales, what swifter way to get a federal flotilla off the coast of Bolivia than by paying tribute to the man in Chicago?  I bet if Morales siezes that mine now, the federal gunboats will have la Paz bottled up quicker than they had Charleston.
