    Good for Almagro, and good for the OAS for speaking out and breaking ranks!

    I don't know why he didn't do it earlier, but glad he finally did.

    It is clear what differences are with Pepe Mujica!

    Perhaps he heard the shrieking of the defeated Harpy as flew out of the Casa Rosada and realised now was the time.

    Sending Maduro that letting is kinda like petting an enraged Baboon.
    Unless you want to get bit, it is probably best to shoot it.
    Where's the rest of Latin America? All I hear is crickets.

    OAS is useless. An organization created by the 5 eyes, headquartered in 5 eyes and defends intyeresses of 5 eyes.

    We will be against the OAS in all that the OAS intends to negotiate or do.

    And we support that South America will withdraw this scam.

    The only “garbage” in Venezuela is the current government.

    @3. What you mean is that the OAS is civilised. And Brazil isn't. As you would know if you were ever there. Wouldn't it be nice if every killer got a bullet through his head, a rope and a drop or just a garotte. South america is a continent of corruption, lies and murder. There isn't much of the south american population that ought to be alive. But the civilised nations have morals. Can't just exterminate scum like you, Brasso.

    The only useless thing around here, is you ; If want to try to be useful, you could be transformed into fertilizer, as you are already full of it.
    Again, “who” is “we” ? you and your boyfriend, that form the '2 idiot gang from CUritiba ?'
    Go and insert your head up Maduro's bum, you ignorant idiot !

    Macri will report Maduro for Human Rigths violations at next Mercosur meeting. Argentina would be the first southamerican country to announce this violations against the opposition.

    The problem is that Dilma will try to persuade Macri to don t do this kind of speeches because probably maduro will radicalize more than now

    In my opinion Maduro radicalize himself without help , and Brazil has some investments in venezuela . It s a shame that any southamerican country not advise at UNASUR for several Human Rights violations against the oposition . A Regimen is a bad regimen instead off , Left or Right Ideology

    #3 tobi. OAS is primarily a latam organization so when you “withdraw” you are only withdrawing from yourselves you buffoon. Ashame you have a problem with democracy.

    Shit will boil at the elections in December with most of the commies losing their dictatorship positions. The bus driver implies he will use the military against his own people for applying democracy and voting against his dictator party. I still think it's an act of war when a nation's military is used for drug smuggling purposes.

    Maduro, I hope you sleep well at night......watch out for those drones.

    All it needs is for Brazil to be embarrassed by Argentina's bold stance, and do the right thing........together with Paraguay, the three could kick VZ out of the Mercosul. And if now they (VZ) elect a democratic government and can get rid of MADurine, then they can have another shot.....

    If the USA wanted to topple Venezuela all we'd have to do it cut off the $ for their oil.
    We could easily, and that's what the XL pipeline was for, buy more from Canada.

    For awhile yet we need heavy oil to mix with our lt oil to make the right blend for our refineries. Only for another few years though until they're all converted.

    She doesn't make any sense.

    I've never seen anyone so sexually repressed and frustrated. It's quite entertaining. Argentinean I'm guessing.

    It's funny, she is up all night swearing at people she doesn't know, over the Internet, jumping every time they write.

    I don't think she really knows what we are saying.

    Agreed Troy.

    But as she herself claims in post 22 “while I’m not interesting at all”.

    Which sums her up perfectly. She isn't interesting at all.

    Love that “I'm not interesting...” bit. LOL!

    Let's see what he chooses to do.

    May I bring my noble steed, my sword of tempered true steel, and a good heart, My Gracious Earls?

    “We have been persuaded by some that are careful of our safety, to take heed how we commit our selves to armed multitudes, for fear of treachery; but I assure you I do not desire to live to distrust my faithful and loving people. Let tyrants fear. I have always so behaved myself that, under God, I have placed my chiefest strength and safeguard in the loyal hearts and good-will of my subjects; and therefore I am come amongst you, as you see, at this time, not for my recreation and disport, but being resolved, in the midst and heat of the battle, to live and die amongst you all; to lay down for my God, and for my kingdom, and my people, my honour and my blood, even in the dust. I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too, and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any prince of Europe, should dare to invade the borders of my realm: to which rather than any dishonour shall grow by me, I myself will take up arms, I myself will be your general, judge, and rewarder of every one of your virtues in the field.”

    Elizabeth I
