    Suarez is closely linked to Hugo Moyano, Argentina’s teamsters’ chief and head of the ruling Justicialista party in the decisive province of Buenos Aires. He is also President Cristina Kirchner closest and most powerful ally since he controls the influential General Confederation of Argentine Workers’ unions.
    ........So this is the Democratic nation who wants to be good friends with all its neighbours,free trade etc blah blah.....South American Allies blah blah....reminds me of the snake in 'Jungle Book'....Truuust meee

    LOL, all the haters still don't realize, the biggest focus/success of Mercosur, and UNASUR, isn't trade, that's second. The biggest focus/success is fighting USA influence and instability. If the region can stay stable, and keep US policies at arm's distance, they are bound to grow.

    Trouble Is without outside influence, you are not going anywhere,
    the Americans dont invest in nothing, and demand a high price for help.
    The west is pouring more and more money in to south America,
    now why do you think that is ??

    Oh we're goin somewhere alright. Exports have boomed, we can go places VERY well on exports, it's THE ideal form of growth actually. Unlike USA's deficit “growth”, which is just borrowed money. Same goes for UK.

    This is right outside of the Buenos Aires...neighborhoods with NO WATER!!
    In the Recondo area of the Villa Fiorito neighbourhood, angry residents have stopped traffic due to lack of water supplies. Tyres are being burned and flags are being flown as neighbours rage over their living conditions.

    Yeah you are going somewhere all right, right down the path to Venezuela hahahaa
