    Actually, it is a good move for both nations, and would be if we were a member of the Pacific Alliance.

    Mercosur / Mercosul is a political organization only.

    I would not say that it is dead for economic purposes, but clearly it illustrates that Mercosur / Mercosul is merely political and ineffective at that.

    The next step of the BRICS is to sign a military pact and a preferential trade agreement.
    Within a decade there will be a common market.
    In two decades there will be a customs union.

    The Western are leeches who only know how to spy, explore and sabotage. The Western can not admit that any other region in the world to grow and develop without their permission.
    It's an empire falling!

    And the relevance of Chintina to Brazil is what?
    The argie 'contracts' enable China to bring in military personnel.
    China is a state with nuclear weapons.

    Unlike the Cuban Missile Crisis, Brazil has no defences. China bases missiles and demands Brazil's surrender. Not too much of a problem. The US targets ICBMs on Brazil and, just to be safe, argieland. Offshore there are UK and US ballistic missile submarines. Shouldn't be too long before Brasileiro is a shadow on a wall!

    Why are some conditions of the trade agreements still being kept secret?
    What is there that KFC doesn't want the people to know about?

    Such a mystery, wow, I'm sure Argentina will invade the Island of White tomorrow, and fill it up with Chinese, something like 30 millions on them.
    Do you think 30 millions Chinese will fit in the Malvinas?

    Fine, OK, I will try to negotiate with Cristina that small change.
    But, I can not promise anything. I think 29.999.999 is a good number.
    But all together?

    I thought this would be of interest to some royal subjects:

    Britain's unique “non-dom” tax concession allow the rich to evade taxes, depriving the UK and other countries of such revenue.
    People living in Britain claim “non-domiciled” status, avoiding several British taxes as long as they keep their fortune out of the country.
    To do so, HSBC’s Swiss private bank offers the non-doms the possibility of legally hide their money under bank secrecy, enabling them to avoid taxes on their wealth anywhere in the world.
    En todas partes se cuecen habas! More details at:

    I think they need to add to the seven deadly sins. The 8th is stupidity and brasshole needs to confess and beg for forgiveness. Repeat while you still can Brasshole.

    @15 Captain,
    Unfortunately there is no vaccine against stupidity.....brASSHOLE will die stupid.
    The only saving grace is that it (stupidity) is 'degenerative'....which means his posts should get funnier and more stupid as we go along.
