    Stand firm Mercosur and Unasur! There is no place for fascist behaviour in that part of the world any more.

    @1 if your brain wasn't so addled with propaganda you'd be aware that most of the countries of mercosur have the hallmarks of fascism.

    You'd never admit this to yourself though, because you're a weak minded imbecile.

    A suggestion to Paraguay, why don't you tell their observers to sling their hook and invite the UN to send independent observers, show some spirit, do not let them dictate to and over rule the way you run your own democracy.

    It is highly unlikely that they would ignore the results with the UN overseeing it,
    WTF am I saying, we are talking about Merco and unasur here, sorry!!!!!!

    More suggestions for Paraguay. Refuse all “observers” from mercosur as well as Unasur. Also, refuse all “observers” from argieland, bolivia, Brazil, ecuador, uruguay and venezuela. Accept observers only from trustworthy nations and organisations. There will be few from LatAm.

    If you think it all through from Paraguay's perspective, their options are really limited. They can either accept this or they can take action which is really going cut them off from their essential trading partners. It will take strong leadership but I hope they do the latter.

    I agree with Mujica that 'politics are sometimes more important than legality' .... we saw this when Mujica and the rest behaved WAY beyond the letter and the spirit of the laws.

    But this in no way excuses the continued flouting of the laws to keep the illegality going.

    It is my belief that the real villain, the most evil, politicised warper of law and justice, is Antonio Patriota of Brasil.

    He cannot operate under the excuse “I was just obaying orders”.
    It did not work at Nuremberg, and it will not work for him.

    Sometimes I wish the death penalty was legal, and that such politicians were not teflon-coated-immune from the full strength of REAL law.

    Patriota is a communist like their president their agenda is to socialize brasil to the point of no return creating a class of lazy citizens just like the other bolibarian countries.
