    Hopefully for our friends, Uruguay is not being declared indispensable argentinian territory now, due to it's legacy of being part of the vireinato de la plata.

    Here's one from Brasil wishing Uruguay all the best and good luck with the quality of the find.
    Uruguay is talking the talk and walking the walk.

    Oh don't get me wrong Mastershake, I do wish Uruaguay the best. As a Dutch I have no problems with your nation at all, though I was glad we defeated them in the world cup (okay we lost against Spain). But let's get real, what I typed is reality, not that it's a major issue for Uruguay.
