    LOL talk about a smack down!

    “Who are Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua to teach about democracy?”

    Priceless.

    These 'esteemed' countries, the models of democracy, Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua must all be quaking in their boots that it may happen to them.

    Let us hope so, especially to Cuba and Venezuela.

    @ 1 Agreed...

    It's rare to hear a succinct comment so right on point.

    I'll repeat your ending note...

    Priceless.

    Brasser is selling just as Madurostan is nationalizing.

    Is this a mixed bag if nuts or what?

    “ The president of El Salvador on Saturday added to the regional pressure on Brazil, saying that he would not recognize the interim government....”

    And who gives a rat's arse whether he recognizes Brazil's new govt or not ? we don't need El Salvador for anything ; the same goes for asshole MadUrine , the Castro idiots, and Uevito Morales. As to Ernesto Samper, who is this asshole ??? head of Unasur ? big deal...means shite.

    Eliane Cantanhede said it all when she wrote ”“Who are Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua to teach about democracy?”

    It is just sour grapes from these idiots, as they can no longer count on Brazil's friendship, nor count on receiving funds through illegal financing from Brazil's BNDES, all approved by the LullaRat.

    We all can now sleep again. Jack Bauer, the keyboard guerrilla, has deployed its heavy verbal artillery in defense of the exemplary democratic process--who said soft coup?!--taking place in Brazil these days.
    Why, Jack is not even afraid of quoting O Estado de Sao Paulo valiant journalist Eliane Cantanhêde admonishing Cuba, Venezuela and other--Oh the horror!--left-leaning Latin American countries.
    Our white knight forgot to mention, however, the invaluable support for Brazil new masters courtesy of no one else than the excelentísimo señor presidente (play marimbas, congas and glockenspiels)...Mauricio Macri!
    Brazil is saved.

    Doesn't such a coup merit suspension from Mercosur?

    @6 Reekie
    Feeling personally attacked Reekie, now that your pseudo heroes have been kicked out ? “....Oh the horror!” what a twat !
    As for quoting Eliane Cantanhede, what's the problem ? can't you deal with the truth and respect for decent journalism....but of course, you are such a shitty little socialist that you become upset when some one puts Cuba's and Venezuela's leaders (leaders ? bloody joke !) in their place. Screw them !

    @7 Condorito
    Well observed......it would be a chance for Paraguay to get even with Brazil, but who would they invite to fill the vacancy left by Brazil ? Can't think of any decent country that would want it.

    Venezuela and Cuba should be able to get North Korea and Zimbabwe on the band wagon - both model democracies from Vz's and Cu's point of view.

    Enrique Massot can't be for real.

    Nobody, and I mean nobody, can be that stupid. He is just trolling.

    But it's not a feeling, Enrique, what you write is obviously so far from reality, that there is no-one who is so stupid that he or she or it believes it, even my dog don't; ie. you are trolling.

    “...what you write is obviously so far from reality.”
    So prey tell. What is the reality are you talking about?
    That of a Thatcherist convinced that unions are trash and workers have to be kept on a leash?
    The reality of a Donald Trump admirer?
    That of an Argentine with knowledge coming from the mainstream media?
    That of one of those unconditional admirers of power and wealth?
    That of a Brazilian peasant?
    You probably realize that the situation in Brazil has several angles, is complex and unprecedented.
    Once we establish what our respective realities are we may--or may not--have a discussion, even if we disagree. However, calling people names is not a good way to start. A good rule of thumb is to write as you would speak to others face to face.
