    I wish Franco every success with the UN, but, being pragmatic, I think he will be ignored.

    The UN really is a useless thing. Maybe in the past it did something, but lately it is good at sending angry letters and that is about it. It also functions as a great platform for idiots like Hugo Chavez to go on rants.

    The UN is a free forum. Including Coup leaders like Franco.

    The idea has always been better than the reality. It is still better to try to keep countries talking than not.

    I bumped into an old friend about a year ago and I asked him what he was doing. He replied, “Working at the UN so nothing really”. : )

    Here in Argentina we are heavily protesting the Kirchner administration, their endless corruption in every corner of the government, stealing of public funds, outright lies to the public about everything from security to the economy to official inflation figures.
    Today we start a new protest in Argentina - it's called the “ANTI-KK campaña”. In our language “KK” is pronounced KaKa, and that is what we think of the Kirchner administration.
    We ask all citizens against the Kirchner “KK” regime to leave a bag of excrement or bring your dog to defecate on the steps of Congress, on the steps of the Casa Rosada, or in front of the door of any office of “La Cámpora” or another militant organization of this joke of a president called “Kolina”.
    Leave bags of excrement, or garbage or any other repulsive, non-dangerous item that stinks on the steps of or in front of any of these government related places. This is a peaceful protest, non-violent, and will send a strong message to the “KaKa” government that is destroying lives in Argentina.
    KK para todos en el gobierno!.......
    Harvard forum where CFK (ka ka queen) will give a speech on Thursday.......
    This is how much her own people HATE her.......!
    And how turkey scrotum neck stays in power.......

    @ 3 ProRG_American who writes:

    Provide documentation for your claim.

    The Paraguayan parliament abided by the Paraguayan constitution. How does that make it a coup?

    Mmmm. It would be intersting what these fly by night operators wil say and do if Capriles wins in Venezuela. There would be no excuses to oppose Venezuela joining Mercosur would there?
    No problem really, Venezuela is there to stay. I don't see Capriles cutting himself off from 250 million plus market, nor closing down Iranian car and Tractor factories displacing thousands of workers. Lovely, isn't it?

    Now that you've proven yourself to be untrustworthy by claiming a coup in Paraguay and not answering the question:

    “The Paraguayan parliament abided by the Paraguayan constitution. How does that make it a coup?”

    why should we even consider anything you write?
