    “Cristina Fernandez the champion of democratic institutions and human rights.”
    execpt when it comes to the prosperous peaceful people of The Falklands apparently they have no rights and she does not accept the democratic vote to decide their future being held next year.

    I always get the impression that CFK wants to be seen/believed to be “the champion of democratic institutions and human rights.”

    I don't believe she really cares about either - they are simply political tools in her armoury. A bit like Michael Jackson claiming to love animals - and children.

    “Argentina was the most radical to the extent it wanted ousted president Fernando Lugo to sit at the Mercosur summit and implement other sanctions. Cristina Fernandez the champion of democratic institutions and human rights.”

    Good to see my beautiful Queen recognised for the heroic democracy and human rights champion she is. Its a shame not all were as advanced as her and Brazil and Uraguay backed down from the radical course she rightly advocated. But its good that Francoist Paraguay has been kicked out of Mercosur. When the poor take power back from the oligarchs in Paraguay I expect they will remember who their best friend was in their hour of need

    I hope to see BK supporting the poor of Argentina as they take back their country from the acquisative CFKC who owns a huge amount of property and wealth in Argentina.

    Listening to the above mentioned (Flùr na h-Alba) beautiful song made me ”Think”.............
    As a Wiking-Argentinean whose last distant Scottish Clan ancestors were dispossesed in the Clearances I expect to claim my “Aboriginal Rights of Return” in a free Scotland…..

    Fair game, I ”Think”................

    As nearly as I can tell, the ”Think’s” clan ancestoral home was exactly where the Strathspey distillery sits today............

    So………..: Please leave the pipes full and the key in the mailbox………, I’ll pick it up!

    And the rest of you English……….., Go homeward and ”Think” again….;-)

    As predicted any excuse to suspend Paraguay and let CFKC's master into Mercosur. He owns her and Argentina; literally. I doubt many Argentine voters will be pleased with this news as most think Chavez is a clown.

    It will be the final nail in the coffin of Mercosur but it was as near death as Chavez anyway.

    All good for the Pacific Alliance. : )

    Yupppppp………... A sad, murky sidetrack of the Think Clan story……

    Apparently, all the pretty white sheep were taken when “Johnny Come Late” proto Think landed on the coasts of Alba some 1,300 years ago…………….

    He had to do with one of those Ginger Celtic furies………………
