    “Furthermore to dredge the Nueva Palmira access canal, Uruguay must agree with Argentina under the River Plate Administrative Committee, something which the government of President Cristina Fernandez has been constantly delaying or taking advantage of its greater bargaining power.”

    and there lies the rub...
    Can we expect to see Argentina further dragging down its neighbours?

    If “No Money Pepe” (because he has squandered it on the so called ‘poor’) had handled Pluna correctly and kicked his ‘bestist’ mate in the arse instead of standing by and watching hundreds of millions of dollars disappear, Uruguay could have stuck two fingers up to The Dark Country and dredged the channel themselves.

    No doubt his favourite arse licking target would have screamed her head off but WGAF?

    Has this been authorised by argieland? Does Urineguay have the guts to dredge channels on its side of the river? Has Urineguay considered bombing Buenos Aires? Or missiles? It's not that far away. The Urineguayan navy. Two landing ships and two frigates. That has to be a joke! Could the Urineguayan Navy defeat the sunken argie navy? Here's the best bet. God bless Her Britannic Majesty's Royal Navy. There are only a few comparable armed services. Her Britannic Majesty's Royal Air Force. Her Britannic Majesty's Royal Marines. Her Majesty's Royal Fleet Auxiliary. The BEST and British Army. So many excellent and heroic units. The Rifles. The Paras. The Guards. The Royal Armoured Corps.

    Just to bring you back to the real world, I will tell you AGAIN that the WHOLE population of Uruguay (which includes the wife and me) is (as of 2011) 3,286,314.

    Or put another way, less than a third of the population of Greater London.

    Got it now? I will wait and see.
