    Ha, ha, ha.

    You can be so stupid just lately.

    You KNOW that Paraguay were to take the chair of Mercosur this time round until the desperate despots who were shit scared they would be next out acted illegally and removed Paraguay from membership in favour of you 'hero'.

    So Mujica and Chavez make you so proud. FFS grow up, your pathetic rants are getting somewhat boring.

    It makes me wonder if you are the original Guzz, the first incarnation had some personal ambition but this one just wants to be destructive against anybody not born in LatAm.

    Me thinks the pot is calling the kettle black.

    The poor oligarchy of Paraguay, who overthrows it's elected government, and then cries and points a finger at everyone else when it doesn't like the outcome.

    ChrisR, shouldn't Paraguay just ask their US/Monsanto masters to make everything alright for them by overthrowing the rest of the South American governments? I mean, that is the US plan anyway.

    @1 What an uneducated prat! A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z. Can you not see that P is after B and before U, or are you totally thick?
    @3 Here's a thought. “mercosur” is an illegitimate organisation. It has failed to follow its own rules. It is “a democratic rupture”. Try reading the Paraguayan constitution. The “government” wasn't overthrown. An incompetent and criminal president was impeached and removed from office. If you can't, or won't, understand that, you are a supporter of a dictatorship. Hopefully, you will be ignored from now on.

    I remember this ”Pretty Woman” from her time in Buenos Aires !!!
    I also remember wo saved her ”Pretty Behind” at that time !!
    Here, from the ”Pretty Ladie’s” own mouth…..:

    ”In 1996, when the (Paraguayan) democratically elected Wasmosy government was nearly overthrown, we were able to preserve our democracy THANKS TO MERCOSUR and friends like the United States, “Leila Rachid told The Washington Diplomat. ”Economically speaking, Mercosur is in crisis, but politically it has been VERY SUCCESFULL FOR THE PARAGUAYAN PEOPLE. We have gained a lot from it.”

    (Not an all too bad article for any Anglo genuinely interested in learning something about Paraguay)

    P for Paraguay? It's P for “Pathetic”. You can't expect much from a crying poor corrupt begger nation.

    It's incredible how riled up the Britards get because of Paraguay.

    Britain invades Iraq and fucks up with people there, but God forbids South Americans from “violating” Paraguay's “sovereignty” by as much as suspending it from Mercosur because of constitutional violations by the congress there. More Britard indignation has been directed in favour of Paraguay than in favour of Iraqis or Chagossians. BriTARDs indeed...

    I think you need to educate yourself about how the 'Chagossians' as you call them came to be living there. It is an issue the UK will address and put right and they will be compensated, but they can hardly consider themselves as indigenous, a bit like most of South America really.
    I think what most Britons feel when they see Paraguay is a small country being bullied and it has resonance with our people in the Falklands. It is also very refreshing to see Paraguay, a South American country showing some strength of character, backbone and individuality. All very British qualities and we admire them for it .
    Hope that explains it for you my friend.

    It's obvious that for certain people commenting in this page, there are “good” and “bad” presidents, terrorists, democracies, dictators, commentators, depending only whether they are with U.S (meaning us, “The God Elected Ones”) or against U.S. .... Amen

    It will be interesting to see what happens when (or if) Paraguay is back into Mercosur. Clearly Venezuela and Paraguay will not get along. Should be fun to watch.

    @5 What's the matter? Do you not know how to spell “Piss”? The “p” in mercosur. Full of it!
    @8 You're talking about argieland. But you forgot to mention a few characteristics. “Anal”, “belligerent”, “cowardly”, “criminal”, “depraved”, “genocidal”, “mendacious”, “parasitical”, “racist”, “repressive”, “sodomite”, “sub-human”, “threatening”, “tyrannical”, “unprincipled”, “vicious”, “xenophobic”.
    @9 Oh do point at the “constitutional violations”. Come on. I've read the Paraguayan Constitution. Have you?
    @14 Unlike argies, we can read. Unlike argies, we support countries that act in accordance with their constitutions and laws. Unlike argies, we condemn places that ignore their constitutions and laws. As argieland does. Or have you conveniently missed the bit in the argie “constitution” that says that the government has to compensate a company etc BEFORE expropriation. Argie criminals!

    Paraguay can't chair a group its not in, so stop moaning!

    #7 I know, a reasonably attractive woman politician from the right, I suppose it had to happen once =) Though if she was foreign minister in 1996 she must be older than she looks!
