    Must be a bit galling for someone to visit you and go back and “Report” how you are governing yourselfs. Especially as some of the people he is “Reporting” to, do not have much to brag about in that respect.

    Enlighten me Light think. Did or did not the Paraguayans act within their laws and their constitution? because judging by the lack of International condemnation, I and by that, I mean me, was assuning they did?

    So explain please, in simple terms, just exactly what has Paraguay done that could be considered undemocratic?

    Hope he was just being diplomatic, or perhaps optimistic because Franco now won't go all the way to rig the election against the left, but my impression of the Paraguay regime remains not good...

    Does Paraguay really need the rest of them,

    Cant she choose who to deal with,
    Cant she try to form her own group of countries to trade and associate with, like Chile ,
    And a few others.
    Just a thought.

    @15 What would a member of the Slimy Necrophiliac Paedophiles know?
    @18 Unfortunately, Paraguay is now between a rock and a hard place. Similar to that of Israel. Surrounded by enemies. Except that Israel has access to the sea. I don't know of an “acceptable” solution. Paraguay needs a railway or road to get goods to and from the Pacific. But such a link would be at the mercy of argieland and Bolivia. Air transport for goods would not be viable on a long term basis. The majority of Paraguay's exports are bulk goods. Soybeans, cotton, sugarcane, cassava, sunflowers, wheat, and corn. Also feed, meat, edible oils, wood, and leather.

    19 I agree with you,

    I thought some years ago the UN said that all land lock countries had a /or should have a right to access to the sea,

    Perhaps I am wrong in my assumption,

    As you say , between a rock and a hard place
    Certainly does not help.
