    Sounds like an encouraging turn in Peru, away from the last nutter who liked to pick fights with Venezuela and Ecuador, to a woman who by this first picture at least looks alright =)

    #2 Don't get ahead of yourself, she looks alright, she'd have to look a lot better yet to upstage Cristinita =)

    #3 Of course your right that looks and competence don't always go together, but do with Cristinita - brains, brilliance AND beauty =)

    What a complete mess in the diplomatic circles of the entire SA.

    ”The office of President Ollanta Humala said in a statement that Rafael Roncagliolo resigned ”strictly because of health reasons”. YES, a 9 mm to the nasal cavity can have that effect.

    “Maduro complained that Roncagliolo was giving voice to opposition leaders.” Well what do you expect of a bus driver? A president?

    “Maduro revealed Humala spoke with Venezuela's ambassador to Peru and Lima then softened its tone.” Thus telling the world he is insecure as president: stunning diplomacy here.

    “Ecuador's President Rafael Correa said Lima acted prematurely by asking Ecuador's ambassador in Peru to leave the country after he was involved in a scuffle with women in a supermarket.” I bet, he wanted a second round as a decider. “Next time he will use the services of that saviour of free speech who is holed up in our Embassy in London, can someone remind me of his name, Correa said.

    And then we have the edifying spectacle of The Dark Country!

    LOLs

    One day....when you can afford to leave your island, you will see how low your standards are. Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder and we all know you are blind........but know we also know your stupid if she is your definitition of brilliant.

    #6 Seems what you don't like is that Maduro isn't following your script of imminent demise, but seems to be going rather strong =)

    I think you might have missed the fact that the Bus Driver, his family and all his close thugs in government will have toilet paper.

    #9 I don't think he's threatening anyone, he's trying to win back the voters Chavismo lost and the best way to do that is to prove that he can make life better for the average Venezuelan, unlike Capriles who had a secret plan to privatise, expel the doctors and end the missions. Maduro as a civilian trade unionist has always been simultaneously one of the most left and most pragmatic of the Chavistas =)

    You think he is not because that statement shows how little you know of the SA culture. That was a threat....and it certainly put the fear of retribution in them. As for Capriles secret plan........just when I think you've reached your apogee of stupidity.....you go out just a little farther.
    My brother in law, a business manager in Argentina, the kind of guys you loath.....businessmen, whenever he has to travel to Venezuela on business.....he gets a risk bonus because of the crime there.......Venezuela is in dire straights.
    Visit your fatherland sometime ...........if you have the balls to support your mouth.

    #12 “As for Capriles secret plan........just when I think you've reached your apogee of stupidity.....you go out just a little farther”

    What do you mean? Its been pretty well documented

    “My brother in law, a business manager in Argentina, the kind of guys you loath.....businessmen”

    I don't loathe businessmen. I may dislike his views, if they're anything like yours =)

    So yet it is well documented, you cannot provide those “secret plans”? Are yopu doing your share and donating toilet paper to the people of venezuela? That's shit is high tech production you know? I have a few thousand Argentine pesos I can't unload here in the USA, makes great toilet paper.
