    They want to see Uruguay and Paraguay on their knees. Is this the sort of country the EU is meant to have a trade deal with?
    You can kind of understand their neighbours telling them what they want to hear with behaviour like this.

    I wonder if Stevie is in full support of these remarks from his 'brother nation', that's if he is Uruguayan, which I doubt!

    @4 Of course it isn't anything you'd want to discuss. This is “your” idols hamstringing “your” country for its own profit and to “get its own way”. A reasonable, balanced, unbiased individual would criticise argieland. A sane, intelligent Uruguayan would identify argieland as being “criminal”. Why don't you? An argie masquerading as a Uruguayan? A Uruguayan in argie pay? A fascist/socialist fanatic? A total fool? Your choice. No answers?
    @6 Christmas presents (bombs) from the sledge?
    @10 Read the article dummy. ”In effect Horacio Tettamendi, Argentina's Under Secretary of Ports and Waterways was quoted saying ”we want Uruguay and (landlocked) Paraguay on their knees”.“ Seems clear enough.
    @12 Don't really care if his name is ”Titamonkey“. It's a ”quote“, tosspot. Seems to be reasonable cause for war.
    @21 If you were to keep up, you'd realise that the EU will demand all sorts of changes in the mercosur member states. Virtually every facet of what latam gets up to will be affected. And there, right in the middle of the EU, for the time being, is.....Britain. Frightening, eh? Right there blocking ”you” at every turn. EU, UN, Security Council, IMF, WB, WTO, G20, G8, G7 and so many more. And, on top of it all, the British armed forces. Best in the world. Why does argieland's sphincter spasm every time it thinks of 1500 troops, 4 combat aircraft, a couple of warships and the occasional nuclear-powered submarine? Does it make the same fuss about U.S. nuclear-powered warships and submarines? How about Russian ones? One slight difference. Britain has shown a willingness to confront and respond actively to latam aggression. There always has to be someone willing to confront evil. Britain has done so a number of times. Occasionally other countries come along for the ride. The U.S. managed to join WW1 just before it ended, but WW2 halfway through. Russia managed most of WW1, but ducked out before the end. WW2? Spent 2 years grabbing territory.

    Argentina as a sovereign nation is entitled to decree what every they want in regards to their own cargo. The problem here for Uruguay is that most of the port's cargo comes from Argentina.

    Banning Argie cargo from using Montevideo is just another form of protectionism. The reason Argie exporters prefer Montevideo (given the choice) is that it is a more efficient port.

    Protectionism will only turn BA port into the Aerolineas Argentinas of the port industry - an inefficient, loss making entity that consumes government spending.

    26. Except the ports in BA are basically shut down because they aren't letting in any imports.
    Also, yes they are a sovereign nation but the absolutely don't have the legal right to hinder trade due to the MercoSur and WTO agreements they are a party to.
    This is costing 40MM people their fortunes and probably the next generation's fortune.

    So, Montevideo has a port that is in economic demand by Argentine exporters. Is that right?

    Why doesn't the Uruguayan Govt. tell the Argentines to keep their exports then.

    This bending over shows that Uruguay is indeed strapped to the Argentine economy. They would not take this abuse for this long otherwise.

    Or do they just keep their mouths shut and let Argentina dig its own economic hole and, in the long run, reap net benefits from this kind of a dance?

    COROLLARY (WARNING: HATERS ONLY)
    Since we know that many of you love to cast a fatwa on us whenever we criticize the National Government, we decided to create a drinking game exclusively for you. That’s right, you should be proud. Here are the rules:

    Drink once if after reading the rules above you are going to leave a message that says:

    “I can’t believe how right wing this website has become” (remember that criticizing this Government equals fascism.)
    “Is Clarín paying you guys to write this shit?“
    “I know you think you’re funny but you’re not.“
    “It’s very easy to criticize in a different language when the local population doesn’t understand. You sound like cowards.“


    Drink twice if after reading this corollary you are going to leave a message that says:

    “That’s funny. But even if you try to make fun of the people who comment, you are still a bunch of fascists.“
    “I’m never coming back to this website.“


    Drink three times if after reading the corollary you are going to leave a message in Spanish like “Si tanto les molesta este gobierno por qué no se van a la mierda?” because you think that using Spanish to criticize us is going to hurt us and offend us more. You know, in a “Take that!” kind of way. Well, the truth is we really don’t care.

    @26 Obviously I don't know all the details of relevant laws, regulations, etc. However, I would suggest that once a cargo passes out of argie territory, argieland can no longer “decree” anything. Perhaps you might want to consider the meaning of the word “decree”. Would you like to comment on what should happen if argieland “decrees” that no customs examination should take place? Your concept that argieland can “decree” what it likes is rubbish. The truth here is how frightened Uruguay is. And Uruguay could always request “assistance”. UK and US warships off the coast! How about that?
    @36 Faaaaart! Geddit?
    @43 Another faaaaaaart! Geddit?
    @46 Another faaaaaaart! Geddit?
    @50 Look up and open your mouth. I'm about to have a shit!
    @51, 52 Shit swallowers!
    @54 Nice, wide butthole as well. What are you going to stick in it? Your tongue? Don't forget to suck!
    @57 “Your” continent? All the way from “safe” Scandinavia? Bit like a “pizza”. A cesspit studded with shitholes.
    @59 Good idea! Who do WE most want to kill? Put your hand up, slug.
    @60 Please, child. All the reports indicate that “your country” is already HELL. WE plan to stand by and watch you murder each other. Shouldn't take long!
    @64 Argieland. Missiles. Get the connection? Might as well take out Uruguay while we're at it. Those 7,500-range missiles really work, don't they?
    @67 Do try to differentiate Argentines and argies. Remember nazi Germany? There were nazis and there were Germans. Many Germans fought for their country but not for the nazis. Remember that.
    @75 Oh look, cowardly shit in a basket!

    Well, if the Rg's get their way, that is , as ”Horacio Tettamendi, Argentina's Under Secretary of Ports and Waterways was quoted saying ”we want Uruguay and (landlocked) Paraguay on their knees”, Stevie's gonna have to get down on all fours and is gonna get a sore bum... so much for standing up for each other...the Rg's can't even get along with their neighbours, let alone the rest of the world...

    @79 The guy's name, apparently, is Horacio Tettamanti!

    Ah!
    Tettamanti... He said something else entirely...
    You can read all about it in every Uruguayan newspaper.

    You need to check your sources... ;)

    I'd whistle in the sky if I were you, hands in [own] pockets...

    Jack,
    It's likely Stevie did NOT know who you were talking about.

    He needed the EXACT spelling so that he could 'google' it for background, before spinning an answer.

    Nah Troy, but when you invest “stories”, or nick them from other inventors of “stories”, at least check the spelling of the name you are inventing about...

    I mean, how would it look if I said David Camerún in reality was a decent man?

    Stevie@80 “”There is no Under Secretary of nothing by that name.
    You are lying.“”” Shit, what a scolding...I DO aplogize...who gives a fuck what his name is, Tettamanti , mend-a-titty, or whatever ?? it's NOT relevant to the discussion....why do you pick on stupid details to try to make a point...just like Brazzo's # 51 and your gay reply in # 52....

    @85 It's worth noting that if you search in Google for “Under Secretary of Ports and Waterways”, you can find good old Horacio. http://www.buenosairesherald.com/article/142802/south-american-officials-and-ports-call-to-strengthen-integration
    There's even a picture! And in that article he said ”the Mercosur members should work together to “replace the overwhelming number of problems with co-operation.” What a two-faced git!

    In fact, the only place you can read about the knee-bending, is in la Nación.
    There it says that someone heard Tettamanti say...

    This is common MP methods, don't worry.

    We know...

    @86...I did take a look, tks. Mr. Tetta didn't look too well...maybe he ran into the back end of a bus.....anyway, on focus again :“” Tettamanti, for his part, said that “we are fighting for a fairer, freer and more sovereign Latin America“””.....If that's their way of doing it, good luck !!
