    “together we will be stronger” - Dilma

    Yes, you certainly will be. Not so sure about your partner.

    “The Brazilian position, expressed with politeness, has been that Argentina should abandon car manufacturing and concentrate on efficient farming.”

    Why on Earth would Brasil want anything to do with a deadbeat President like TMBOA and her scofflaw country?

    There has to be another agenda going on here, are Dilma and The Mad Bitch an item?

    The mental picture of that is enough to make even the strongest of stomachs throw up.

    Brazil is in a much stronger position and she sees there is money from something in argentina to be made. I find that last paragraph quite interesting that Dilma was relieved that Asslips seemed willing to reach some sort of agreement with the non restructured bondholders and she was not to keen that asslips was not going to comply with the US Courts. Good to know that Brazil respects the law and apparently sees argentina as deadbeats as well. Of course they were in the same boat but managed their way out rather than default.

    Brazil could probably do very good business in Argentina, as long as they don't give the Argies any credit. Same with Venezuela really, there wont be much investment inside Venezuela or Argentina so in addition to markets Brazil also stands to profit from investments that would have gone directly to those countries had they had sane regimes.

    Brazil looks forward to a symbiotic relationship while Argentina plans for a parasitic one.

    Likewise for Brazil it came as a relief that Argentina seems willing to reach some sort of agreement with the non restructured bond holders, an issue which was becoming increasingly uncomfortable for the administration of Dilma Rousseff given the apparent initial intention of her peer not to comply with the rulings of the US courts.

    And now asslips is sick....again.....freaking die already....you and chubby chavo

    Go working on the fields, you peasants...
    Wohoo... what a slap in the face and humilliation Seems Brazil has not the slightest respect and interest in coperation, but just a primitive slave nation to produce most basic food products.

    These two are very good friends,
    So this may well be why they stand by each other,
    But is Dilma Rousseff suggesting the two become one big super country,
    [argentzil ] or [braztina ] perhaps.

    Together they can rule South America,

    Some other may object to this meaningless suggestion we belive ..?

    Ive just been reading that the Brazilian economy is slowing down rapidly, they are growing less and less year on year. I dont think their economic miracle will transpire and teaming up with that other mad cow is a surefire end to economic prosperity.

    I am more inclined to think that because of the slowing economies, Dilma is trying to subjagate Argentina via political manuevering. Afterall she did suggest the Argentina abandon the auto industry and focus on farming, in diplomatic term s of course......lol. I could hardly ever see asslips ceeding her country to anyone let alone Brazil. Though I do think South America is moving toward the USSA.....lol....or Maybe the Mercosan States of South America

    Briton, Brazil and Argentina are South América. 80% of wealth (PIB, PND). Brazil and Argentina are the history from South América. Two Giants and only one cause. Without Argentina, Brazil dies! Without Brazil, Argentina dies too!

    Grea to see Dilma take time out to cement her relationship with Cristina, far more important that the Unasur meeting that they both will miss =) And what a lovely picture, two gorgeous queens =)

    This is the partBK the RG troll missed:

    “On textiles it was easier since the two countries have a common enemy: China.”

    “Likewise for Brazil it came as a relief that Argentina seems willing to reach some sort of agreement with the non restructured bond holders, an issue which was becoming increasingly uncomfortable for the administration of Dilma Rousseff given the apparent initial intention of her peer not to comply with the rulings of the US courts.”

    Cant see any reason why Brazil is at all dependent on Argentina for anything... the only thing Brazil wants to do is keep Argentina from going too far into the Chavez camp...

    economically, politically and militarily Argentina is a minnow compared to Brazil.

    #20 not sure what you mean. My point is that Brazil does not want argentina competing against Brazil in the auto industry and argentina should stick to farming
