    What a bunch of despicable tossers the Mercosur elite are.

    NONE of the others can claim holier than thou credence when even Pepe was quite happy to break the law when necessary.

    At least Paraguay used their laws to get rid of the flock shagger: good on them!

    The law is for thee not for me. Haven't you figured that out yet?

    Paraguay should tell them to never mind and sign up with the pacific alliance.
    MercoSur is dead.
    My bet is Uruguay will be the next to go followed by Brazil.

    Paraguay was removed for one reasona nd one reason only, to add Venezuela, who Paraguay rejected and still does. They used (as always) a trade bloc as a political platform and ousted Paraguay for following their constitution, something the others have little use for.

    Paraguay.....tell them them to eat shit, bark at the moon and lick their asses. You have the PA.

    Ha ha, that 's big of them!

    They threatened, then suspended Paraguay, as a penalty for practicing their own Self-Determination and fighting corruption in their own government, nefariously nullifying the dissenting vote from Paraguay that would have kept Venezuela out of Mercosur.

    Now that Paraguay is poised to move onto better things, PA, Mercosur generously offers to allow the offending Paraguay back in as a gesture of good will.


    What a joke. Mercosur is on the rocks, rotting from within. They need Paraguay more than the other way around.

    Tell 'em to 'stick it', Paraguay !!!!!!

    Brazil´s not trying to reverse the damage caused to Paraguay, but´s too late. By now most Paraguayans know very well the kind of “partners” they have in Mercosur, and they don´t like it at all. Brazil´s not big enough to hold South America together around it´s own geopolitical vision, and will never be. Latin American nations do have their own identity and the one thing they are tired of is precisely of bullies, either external or in their own neighborhood.

    Now Dilma´s trying to bring Ecuador into Mercosur, and perhaps Cuba, who knows, while true the most dynamic economics, but Mercosur´s nothing, means nothing but outdated protectionism that hurts their own members and commodity dependency, they will never become fully industrialized nations with Mercosur. Uruguay understands that, same as Chile, Colombia and Peru. They know the only way to ever achieve prosperity is through free trade, true cooperation and openness to the world.
