    “The international affairs advisor also said it was “impossible” to adopt actions to force the Paraguayan congress to review its decision to remove Lugo although admitted that some “internal actions” are possible to overcome the institutional situation which Brazil condemns”

    So the context is he was hinting at civildisobedience, the headline makes it look like he accepots the Franco government

    I don't understand your point of view BK, this was an example of pure democracy in action. The Paraguayan people, through their legislators and in accordance with THEIR Constitution, impeached their president who left and was replaced by the vice-president.

    So where is ”the rupture of the democratic order” that Brazil et al are going on about?

    A trial where the defendant only has 2 hours to prepare his case, come on! And the politics of this are clear, its the removal of a left leader by the corrupt antidemocratic old oligarchy. Lets hope that oligarchy is now brought to heel by the strong women who run its only neighbours
