Brazil’s main financial newspaper Valor Economico revealed that the recent summit between Presidents Cristina Fernandez and Dilma Rousseff from Argentina and Brazil was far from polite and enlightening, rather the contrary with “strong disagreements in the fields of trade and investment” shaking the foundations of Mercosur.

    Dilma is far from blameless with regard to the lack of international investment in Brasil and the slow down in the economy. She still has the liar Mantega as Finance Minister so how can she expect the credibility of Brasil to be any better than it is.

    The position of Argentina is worsening by the day because of self-inflicted wounds and Maduro has yet to demonstrate he is anything other than an ex-bus driver and vindictive to boot..

    In reality is anyone surprised by this turn of events: I thought it would have come before now.

    It was well known that the April meeting was a complete mess ,after all Rousseff left a day early ! And now we add problems with Venezuela. For some time now it was clear that Argentina was going , in a big way , down the Bolivarian road . Did the people know this when they gave the Government such a majority at the last election ?

    Last week the trolls hardly posted at all. I would say this might very well be a longer dry spell..........a very long strategy session is in the works here. Think of how hard is my be to defend this.........and try to believe what you are told to believe.

    On top on this news for Argentina, now it is reported that 24% of Argentine families are victims of violent crimes. Where are the trolls today.

    @14 Poppy

    “. Where are the trolls today?”

    In Canada, we are celebrating Queen Victoria's birthday, today.

    She ruled over the largest Empire over the world.

    Perhaps they're celebrating in reverence to her as well?

    This looks like shit stirring by the financial press to me, even if its all true, fine, they'll be bumps along the way, but as even the first paragraph admits, ideological ties remain and national interests remain broadly aligned =)

    #15 A lady who wore black for decades to mourn her dead husband, don't know if Elaine would attack her for that!

    Troy I think it's become harder and harder to defend. Dilma see's the writing. As Mercosur fades into oblivion as a trade bloc, Dilma sents off on an official trade mission with the USA and soon the EU and even individual countries. It's obvious that Dilma does not want to path to ruin that Venezuela and Argentina has taken, so she acts on her own. Though, she can very easily fall into that same situation.

    @18 Actually, yes, I would. She was a silly spoiled brat who almost brought about the end of the monarchy with her silly martyr act. I would call the obsessive mourning and victim act of Queen Victoria a mental illness. Fortunately she wasn't running the country so her petulance didn't really hurt anything but her own family. Have you read any of her letters, BK? Fascinating.

    As to the article, you can try to sweep it away but the reality is that CFK's government has shit on its own doorstep and the doorsteps of all its neighbours. Never a good idea. Once the ASBO tenants are gone I am sure the neighbours will welcome the new inhabitants and harmony will resume.

    Looks like the great CUNT of Argentina is after her enemies once again. I wonder if she gave Obama lessons? Only difference is Obama will get impeached for breaking the law.......and she is the Criminal in Chief

    #20 “She was a silly spoiled brat who almost brought about the end of the monarchy”

    Shame she failed at that =)

    #23 “Only difference is Obama will get impeached for breaking the law”

    What do you mean - he'd be impeached if he ated the way (you think) Cristina acts, or do you actually expect him to become the first President to be successfully impeached? Don't see much chance of the latter

    Dilma is too tied in to the 'Revolutionary Left' of Arg. and Ven..

    Perhaps we will have to wait for a Nevez government to break the red ribbons that bind Brasil into the triumvirate.
