    give more decision-making power to international organizations.

    And you can bet somewhere , somehow , CFK will want some of these powers.

    especially if she has to leave aside her individual interests in the British Falkland's..

    It's embarrassing to have this illiterate, innumerate, murdering commie bastard spouting this poorly thought out cobblers on the international stage.

    Where’s the sniper when you want him / her?

    Leave aside individual interests, right? And the interest of Urineguay in the Falkland Islands is what? I agree with Chris. Why can't someone shoot this illiterate, innumerate, murdering commie bastard spouting this poorly thought out cobblers on the international stage? Kill the useless, fat faggot NOW. A suitable bullet in the gut and he'll probably explode! Or take off and fly around the hall.

    This guy just might be a ray of hope in this continent of banana republic dictatorships. Imagine...caring what goes on in the world. And how it affects everybody. Something CFK certainly wouldn't understand from fortress Argentina.

    “and give more decision-making power to international organizations”

    That would solve “none” of the problems you are addressing Pepe. It would make them worse. And then, now that the problems are even more noticeable:

    “Oh, you need to give even more power to the international organizations!!”

    Which would make things even more worse, and then:

    “Oh, you need to give more power to the international organizations!!”

    And so on. Lefties say things about improving life for the people, and lead them into the opposite. And this perfect inverse relationship between what they say they are going to do and the opposite that actually happens just never seems to be picked up on.

    Insulza forgot to mention that what Mujica thought was wrong was actually a legal, democratically elected gov't. They thought they knew better so he and his mates rose up against it, eventually landing Uruguay in a cruel, murderous dictatorship.

    @ 9 ynsere

    Spot on!

    But be careful, you are likely to have Supa Tupas on your back from Solymar, or Sweden or Denmark or more likely BsAs berating the “lies” that you have just posted.

    I can imagine how worried you are about that! Ha, ha, ha.

    P.S. I took your advice. :o)
