    Considering the expulsion was illegal and the subsequent incorporation of Venezuela illegal that ugly monkey should keep her mouth shut.

    I don't know why you are so happy about Brazil's exertion of power over smaller nations.

    Brazil is the biggest country in South America, it wields a lot of influence and power. Just like the USA does in the rest of the world.
    Listen to our “recommendations” or face the consequence.
    That is the way the world works

    Now was it the right thing? That is another matter altogether.

    # 9 - Unlike the US, Brazil isn't threatening to militarily attack any country that doesn't abide by it's foreign policy goals.

    Well considering that it was Nicolas Madura that attempted a military coup when Lugo was impeached, it could be a difficult choice in accepting Venezuela into Mercosur. Just as Brazil will make demands, I'm sure that Paraguay will as well. What it comes down to is negotiation and Brazil really wants Paraguay back in because it is preventing the whole of Mercosur from being taken seriously. However, should Paraguay accept Venezuela, then the world will consider the issues resolved and thus begin to negotiate with Mercosur. Expect some special gifts for Paraguay in the form of new roads, power lines, etc.

    # 11 - Military coup where? In Paraguay? Paraguays military, just as Brazil's, hates the left. Sounds unlikely to me that there ever was even a remote plot of a military coup. Paraguay will be fine accepting Venezuela in the Mercosur now because it will good for business, and it's money that rules. And as far as infrastructure in Paraguay, I'm pretty sure Paraguay wouldn't mind accepting Venezuela and thus recieving more financing from BNDES in Brazil.

    “Just like the USA does in the rest of the world.”

    Seriously mexicanboy (yankeeboy..meaning dickhead in old dutch), we all know you're a low self esteem keybord warrior that wants to pretend the US is the center of the world and some superpower, but it's not working anymore. Do yourself a favor and stop drinking the kool aid. The US doesn't drive shit, and we are broke (yes, face it, okay), stop preteding it's fine, because it's not. The last time it won a war was ww2, it can't even win in Korea, it did not win the war in Vietnam and today it still cannot win/finish the so called war in Iraq and Afghanistan (yes, they are still there and losing).

    “Expect some special gifts for Paraguay in the form of new roads, power lines, etc.”
    Since they know how to deal with that little corrupt poor begger nation, that might happen for a good price of course (it won't be for free certain not only accepting Venezuela in the organization which btw, Paragay has no choice to accept)...and...we all know who that Brazilian companies will (they make sure they will) benefit from building those infrastructures projects.

    There is no discussion that Paraguay will make a big deal about Venezuela in the Mercosul/Mercosur organization. Cartes made it clear that they are in for it because it's in their interests, long term.

    Well, Paraguay, your choice. Will you kowtow to Brazil's colonialist imperialism? If you do, you can forget about being thought of as a country, nation or sovereign state. You will be a Brazilian province with no balls. Conquered by a woman.

    You are right I have no problem with that as long as it is in the best interest of the USA they can threaten and attack anyone they want.
    Now if it's not in our interest.....

    We should have let them level BA when they suggested it. Too bad maybe soon though..maybe soon

    #12 - I stated that he attempted to instigate a military coup, he just wasn't successful. Video is available online if you want, showing Maduro trying to convince the head of the military to defend Lugo.

    Because of this, Maduro is a persona non grata in Paraguay and thus it will be very difficult to have any type of relationship with him.

    #13 - Paraguay as a beggar nation.....hmmm.....Paraguay doesn't even borrow money. The government has no debt. We negotiate and get what we can in diplomacy, but what country doesn't?

    Behind every succesful oligarch there is a woman.
    Behind the revolutionary, there is no one.

    She is fighting right next to him.
