    One would hope that President Mujica will have the guts to tell Sarkozy and the bloody French government to piss-off and mind their own business. It never ceases to amaze me how countries such as France and others can't mind their own damned business, and bully small wonderful countries such as Uruguay to do their bidding. A pox on the French.

    official who married his step mother Cristine de GANAY in 1977...

    the Cyrus VANCE ...WISNER & VANCE families also have close ties ..

    Frank WISNER Jr.was the son of US's most one of notorious spies who
    Frank Gardiner WISNER ( 1909 -- 1965 ) ,the mastermined behind
    CIA sponsored coup which knocked the Government of M.Musaddegh
    in IRAN 1953..

    Frank WISNER Jr. is also the trustees of Rockefeller Trust ..
    Frank WISNER Jr. also played a key role as OBAMA's special intelligence

    @2ed No, I don't deny one thing you have written. Remember: “ what a tangled web we weave, when at first we do decive.” I am not here to defend the USA's track record in International Relations; it is absymal. I was simply commenting on the conduct of a pompous ass, and a pompous ass of a nation attempting to browbeat a small nation into submission. Screw the “New World Order.” Uruguay should do what is in the best interests of Uruguay and screw the G-20, France, The UN and last but not least, the USA!

    Everybody knows, and of course President Kujica, that the motion comes from Argentina! Furthermore, Mujica after rejected Sarkozy's accusations called latter to the Latin America unity, and asked “If not, who will support the Falklands claims?”

    Shame on you, Uruguay. Tax havens should be invaded and annexed.

    @9Dorian. You write like as if you are Argentinian with all the 'invading and annexing' rhetoric. You have just fallen down the same 'I no nothing but it does not stop me telling lies' as Sarkozy.
    Uruguay is making progress at stopping tax avoiders (as confirmed by the rating agencies mark up) and I think the President was giving Argentina the benefit of the doubt.
    There is however in my judgement no doubt who the tax evaders are: just look at CFK and her backhanding cronies. Try a little nearer to home.
