    I don´t think this FLAR will be sign by our congress (Chile) because when the regional bank was created they invited Chile and we say No so I don´t see a reason to accept this new fund in fact this fund is just a “give money to the countries with no international reserves” I´m not paying taxes to subside fiscal problems of other countries

    United of Malvinas hey Think? United in doing bugger all about Malvinas.

    What do you think of your hero Chavez? Singing the praises of a dictator under who's order a number of mass executions have just taken place. Chavez, a socialist who flies to Cuba for cancer treatment but who wouldn't afford his citizens the same luxury. I guess we are all equal but some are more equal than others.

    Nice group!

    I agree with Gianni.....Why we that do the right things must hold with the weight of bad adminitration of other that do the wrong thins......
    we had a perfect example of the marxist behaviour....Gladys Marin, comunist party leader from long time whe was affected for a cancer went to Sweden and Cuba for treatment instead a common treatment in a Chilean Health System, which she was a hard defender during her political campains, like as the regular citiziens must do.....repeated by the older monkey (and very close to her and Gaddafi) Huguito....
    A “big” country that is not able to face to other little country as Falklands Is. is needing the help of the all Latam countries to pursue it dreams ????
