    Nice one Uruguay. Anyone who upsets Chaves, Dilma and KFC can't be at all bad. It seems odd that an alleged technical breach of Paraguay's constitutional law should be cause for such antagonism and threats from all the usual suspects. More likely the presence of US forces in Paraguay is the real reason for the opportunist posturing.

    A humane but I fear mistaken stance from Mujica on sanctions. Well done Chavez for cutting off the subsidised oil. Hope Cristina and Dilma are able to reverse this coup given their key neighbourly role

    Why is Mujica saying anything? He doesn't have the authority or strength to defy argieland. He's a cipher. Probably bought and paid for. And he wouldn't have the guts anyway. Well done, Uruguay, you elected a senile, cowardly, argie stooge. Like it, do you?

    Pepe has his faults but read the article again, because the only fault I can find is that he sided with The Mad Bitch of Argentina, Dead Man Walking and The Coward Correa.

    That in my judgement was wrong, especially as he must have sent Almagro to Paraguay instead of having him on-hand to help smooth the deep sea port through with the Chinese where he was once Ambassador.

    This undoubtedly caused them to lose face. Not what you want when you are asking them for favours.

    How many in your immediate family, 3, 4 or 5? How would you like 50 loud mouthed yobs outside your house? Be able to deal with them by force?

    No, even The Conqueror would have to STFU and DEAL with the problem, wouldn't you? That's the ratio of the population of Uruguay to Argentina.

    Have a nice rant.
