    or maybe the Yankee Imperialists will stage a coup while she's having dinner in DC...

    And secretly, CFK is jealous, and fuming that she was not invited.

    Mrs Kirchner wasn't invited because she gets a bit loud when she has a drink.

    I feel ashamed. My President should not visit a country that spied on your emails and tried to steal industrial secrets of the world's largest oil, our Petrobras.

    I'm feeling betrayed by her. Tighter ties with the US will choke us with neoliberal policies that distort the character of our society and call into question our leadership with the South.

    I hope that anyone who has access to Dilma open her eyes, because not only money and business turns the world. Why not send Kirchner to visit Obama and the Prime Minister English? They have much more to talk and solve problems such as the Falklands unlike us Brazilians.

    Funny thing is Brazil is coming at a time when both the country and Prez are extremely weak which is a great time to negotiate a FTA with them.
    As long as they don't ever get a visa waiver I am cool with it.

    Poor Brasileiro.

    Ashamed and betrayed by his beloved government!

    Not because of all the corruption but because his President needs to visit the world's most powerful country.

    #3 Brazil idiot

    Dilma and Lula are two of the most corrupt, hypocritical, thieves in the world.
    Their Workers Party is an evil mafia that pretends to fight for the poor and yet in truth line their pockets with riches of Brazil. Leftists are thieves and should be permanently incarcerated in remote jungle work prisons for reeducation. What Brazil needs is a modern day version of Pinochet.

    I learned from my father that we can and should ask for help for those who can help us.

    There is no possible help in the US.

    If they have the chance they will try to take our best minds, the best companies and that goes for all of South America, including Chile.

    What they want is the complete and arrogant hegemony over the Americas.

    No cooperation, no deals, no nothing ..... with them.

    No. So far I have not seen anything like it in relation to China. On the contrary, I see a huge interest of China to help us develop, here in Brazil, new technologies that can facilitate the integration of our economies.

    Everyone is talking about how scary the Chinese economy is and that they'll never make it into a developed country.

    Their debt will kill them. They have more debt that the USA! Zombie banks and false economic numbers.

    It will be scary when it fails.

    It goes back a bit but there is still a federal murder case outstanding in the USA for her international terrorist murder of the ex-military chief.
    Most of it has been shredded by Brasilia so the trail may be harder to follow now.

    As long as you have Lula's Worker's Party in power, the quote: “Brazil is the country of the future… and always will be.” Describes their fate. It's not very nice, but certainly nicer than Charles de Gaulle’s other observation in 1963 that “Brazil is not a serious country.”

    @3. Don't worry. She'll be dead before they ship her corpse back. Maybe.
    @7. You need to learn something. China is dead when the U.S. says it is. Remember the Korean War? Started by North Korea. Then it found ir couldn't cope. It called for Russian assistance in the air and Chinese assistance on the ground. And the result? After a period of re-adjustment, UN aircraft decimated soviets. The Chinese were into massive, overwhelming running attacks. 80% Chinese deaths?
    @12. Do you have a problem with comprehension? All those lovely 'loans'. And when China wants them paid back? How about Chinese air bases (under joint control?), Chinese army bases (just to have an appropriate security presence at Chinese-funded projects)? Already agreed. Chinese naval 'facilities' (including 'protective' Chinese troops).
    Simple question. Have you fought a world war on the same side as China? And the UK and USA trust each other because.........? Same roots. Same language (well nearly). Two wars on the same side. Even if they were late both times.
    Bit of advice. Don't come crying to us. Your new semi-superpower 'friend' would have no problem conquering SoAm. Look up the details on your armed forces. Then take a look at China.

    You know, I have basically had it with Chichureo. Who the f--ck is this guy to moralize on other Latin American countries? An Argentine?

    I think it is so funny that this moron, who is the first to denounce (unwarranted) argie arrogance, even if it was warranted, displays and utterly grotesque and unsubstantiated arrogance of his own. So what is clear is that at the first opportunity, Chileans will behave the same exact way as argies.

    Let me remind this poor sod that after 40 years of the “Chilean miracle”, your country still MERELY exports fruits, copper, and wine. That's half a decade boys, and you can't export anything more complicated than a grape. And btw with the global “buy local, buy seasonal” movement, people all over the world are returning to the idea of buying their perishables from the CLOSEST possible source... which means the future of your fruit export industry is SCREWED.

    As for wine, Chile makes well made but REPLACEABLE Cabernet, merlot, chardonnay, etc... you even make malbec. The problem? There is no reason to buy “Chilean” wine. You see, French wine sells itself, it's French wine. If you want a good Chianti, Barolo, or Aglianico you have to buy Italian. If you want Rioja, Spain. A nice sweet Riesling? Have to do Germany. Malbec or Torrontes? No choice but to buy Argentine wine.

    Chile on the other hand, has no cornered wine market. They make fine merlot, chard, and cabernet but not IRREPLECABLE wine. They are realizing this and thus making a big push with Carmenere, the problem is this grape is fickle and can make superb wine when done right, but green and unbalanced wine when not done with care. And Chile does not have any alluring iconic cultural traits to draw in people to their wines, like Argentina has with Tango, football, Argentine rock, gauchos, etc. So... what to do.

    So 40 years of the great Pinochet, and Chile still ain't making flat screens or cell phones.

    Actually I bought Chilean raspberries the other day. Very nice!

    “So 40 years of the great Pinochet, and Chile still ain't making flat screens or cell phones.”

    Bahahaha because only poor countries make money by putting those things together. That is why their manufacturing is moving out of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan to China and other countries.

    But even after all of Nostrils' very long post, Chile is still richer and more stable and more peaceful than Argentina.

    Malbec is classified as Cooking wine in Canada - or “the Cheap stuff”!

    Chilean wines have enjoyed popularity here for a long time , and they are always a sure bet.

    Arg wines?/ - people expect its what they cant sell in Europe that they discount heavily and send to North america.

    Only sells on price.

    Chile is on its way up and Argentina is declining - fast

    Well, we don't assemble cheap consumer electronics here because our average per capita income is nearly double that of Argentina. Our export businesses continue to flourish with free trade agreements signed with over 40 countries. Because we have the best military in Latin America, our nation is secure and peaceful. Because we pay our debts, we have the highest credit rating in South America. Because we have an independent central bank, Chile has one of the most stable currencies in the world. We enjoy the lowest incidence of violent crime and corruption in Latin America. Tourists, love the fact that they can safely walk our streets in the evenings and free secure knowing our police are renowned for their honesty. Chile is privleged to have the second highest ranked hospital in Latin America and the HIGHEST ranked university.

    What is the population of Chile? What is the size of the Chilean economy? What is the perimeter of Chile?

    If Chile grow 2000% per year for ten years it will still be an overwhelming void.

    It's like I get walking in the street full of flowers where I live. Boring!

    Chilindio, every time I read your posts comes to mind that English traitor in the movie King Arthur where he dies with a well-aimed arrow in the middle of the tree where he was hiding.

    Speaks of how your world is perfect to see if I can change the image that I did it after my two trips. And certainly there will no be a third.
    I found Chile with extreme poverty pockets in medium-sized cities. A situation that left me embarrassed and much worse than Argentina for example.

    Chile certainly is not perfect and has its problems, but still is one of Latin America's most stable and prosperous nations, leading in human development, competitiveness, income per capita, globalization, economic freedom, and low corruption. It's almost embarrassing to me to address the envy of some of the trolls here because their countries have far greater natural resources and riches, yet my little country is far superior. Our prosperity has been EARNED not stolen.

    Can the wine bullshit, Chopper. You recently posted a link in here in Spanish you claimed was about the Argentine wine “industry,” when it was really about Spanish wines. Too bad most of us know more Spanish than you. The only thing cheap Argentine wine is good for is for that cheap buzz you get when you chug it in order to make a molotov with the bottle for your “NoEthic” school of “thought” existential experiments. You know, the ones where you try to talk somebody out of a burning car AGAIN. ;)
