    The OAS meeting taking place in Asuncion has given it's support to the Argentine Malvinas claim. I know, I know, a little premature but thought I would save them the effort of issuing the same old tosh!

    I hope Paraguay will remember all the times it has been stabbed in the back by Arg before it supports it's Malvinas cause!!!

    @1 Did it include Paraguay? Ah well, blood is thicker than intelligence. It seems that, several hundred years ago, WE had to prove this to the Spanish and the French. Wasn't there an “incident” off Cape Trafalgar where the British Royal Navy decimated a Franco-Spanish “fleet”? Wasn't there an “incident” in Belgium where a British Army routed a French one? Earlier, weren't there “incidents” where a British Army drove the French out of Portugal, and then out of Spain? Then we had to prove it to the Germans. Twice. And there was some little place. Possibly the shortest “war” in history. But we let them off lightly. They were obviously numpties! I mean, just imagine putting a ship up against a British submarine. Or French jets against British ones.

    3 . Nice one ! But I am slightly concerned about the meeting here . Imagine having to smile at Rousseff , Kirchner , Morales , Correa and worse still Maduro ! But , fortunately , the US and Canada will be there .
