    young Jefferson/Uruguay would support Argentina 'right or wrong' - or so our Jefferson says.

    It is in Uruguay's best interest to work preferentially *with* the stable anchor of South America - Brasil, what ever 'strangenesses ' Argentina gets up to.

    Trouble is that even Argentina hasn't learned lessons from its dirty war. It still believes in oppression and suppression.
