    A good, balanced report...or a case of fence-sitting related piles.

    The OAS acts institutionally, because it is not controlled by a few arrogant big-mouth members, no bullying small countries around here, not mental or ideological hysteria here. Everybody is cool and due process follows it course, as it should: a committee formed by representatives from several countries evaluates the situation, a delegation is sent to conduct interviews with all contending parties and to investigate whether the country´s constitutional order was breached. They produce a report based on facts and findings on the ground. That´s it. This is not a group of comadres raging and threatening the neighborhood.

    The OAS committee has done well. The report will not be well received by CFK.
    Oh the wails and screaming I imagine from the Casa Rosada...

    Surprise surprise, biased committee releases biased report. #2 Are you mad, no big boys or bullies in the OAS, so the USA is just a humble ordinary member then? #3 Don't think Cristina will be surprised either, hate to think of her distraught but I think you're wrong. Of course it won't be recieved well, it won't be taken seriously in LatAm

    OAS :)
    After Honduras, you lot lost all credibility.
    Speak, Insulza, make your noises, when it comes to decisions, we listen to UNASUR, or ECLAC should the issue go beyond SA...

    @4 Predictable. “Surprise surprise, biased committee releases biased report.” Of course it's biased, in favour of the truth. Not surprised you don't like it.

    “Of course it won't be recieved well, it won't be taken seriously in LatAm” Of course it won't. Nothing is ever taken “seriously” unless you're saying it.

    UN resolutions aren't taken seriously unless they say what you want them to say or what you think they say. UNSCR 502 wasn't taken seriously. Until enough time had gone by for argies to say “It wasn't us. It was the junta.” Argies can now also say “Either they're dead or we've locked them up.” In other words, scapegoats. There are 40 million war criminals in argieland. Then there's international law. Argieland doesn't bother with international law until it's been twisted around and it thinks it's found some bits that suit it.

    Argies and argieland: the only ones in step! Difficult to see a week or a month go by when argieland hasn't bullied someone else.

    It did not need a ten page report and could be handled in THREE words of English: IT WAS LAWFUL.
