Venezuela's ruling Socialist Party legislators reacted to a trip by Brazilian senators to visit jailed opponents of President Nicolas Maduro by describing it as “abusive” and “meddling”. The Brazilian delegation's visit on Thursday was cut short after their minibus was stoned by Maduro supporters and roads were blocked, forcing them to return to the airport and fly back the same day.

    I love it...

    “Members of Maduro's Socialist Party said the half-dozen Brazilians were part of a right-wing international conspiracy.”

    Of course!... Maduro & Friends really need to come up with something new. Although I enjoy the same old song, it's time to play a new one.

    The truth is even the friends of socialist Venezuela are uncomfortable with the way opposition folks are being handled. I take that back. They don't really CARE most of the time, but the international press doesn't paint a very positive picture for Venezuela's government... and it can stir up public resentment elsewhere. It can be destabilizing, and not a healthy situation for autocratic leaders.

    Best wishes to all!

    Thank the Virgin Maria for blessing those who help the suffering and thank even more the justice Lucifer bestows eventually upon the Chavistas.

    Hugo Chavez reportedly receives a pineapple shoved up his posterior every day followed by him obligated to suck upon the male appendage of Saddam Hussein every hour..

    Happy for Mercosur to be one big entity. One nice, big, inflexible, recession-ridden entity.

    The Pacific Alliance isn't as big. Isn't inflexible. And isn't recession-ridden.

    And guess what, none have people stoning visiting politicians from neighbouring countries.

    I thought Brazilians and Venezuelans were hermanos, Stevie. Isn't that true?

    We are all Chavez..... and hungry..... and broke...... and stoning people.... and dying

    MercoSur is a dead man walking. A collection of the worst of the worst of LatAm.
    The members are like crabs in a crab pot. Each pulling the other under.

    I am glad.

    I want to see their insane belief of Socialism fail just like it has every time its been tried and is currently failing in Venezuela.
    I hope all the Chavistas ( and their counterparts in the other failed states) starve during the civil unrest they've brought upon themselves.

    Who these idiots senators think they are?

    Put yourself in the place of Venezuela!

    And if we were we to receive these “visits” of North-Americans?

    Put yourself in your place, Mr. Neves!

    I think that the Venezuelans were educated in not having killed all the corrupt senators from Brazil!

    Sovereignty is sovereign!

    Buenos Aires, Casa Rosada
    Presidente de la Nación Argentina
    Dra. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner
    (English Translation)

    Relations between the Argentina Nation and the United Kingdom are being pushed to the worst catastrophe as the days go by due to vicious smear campaign being conducted through the imperialist media consisting of a litany of malignant lies being currently parroted my the illegal puppet so called “Acting Governor” Sandra Tyler-Haywood of the illegally held Islas Malvinas.

    Outrageous false claims of Argentina is conducting some sort of disruption and blockade of the Malvinas illegal inhabitants as well as being rightful subjects of Argentina testifies to the promotion of unwanted confrontation to hinder the eventual repatriation of the Malvinas to its rightful motherland.

    The British imperial imaginary claims are getting disintegrated beyond control and hit hard from all sides for its political crisis and subsequent social catastrophe and confusion.

    It is vexed with the daily increasing political might of Argentina, the might of single-minded unity of international relations growing stronger as the days go by.
    The group of traitors is busy conducting the above-said false propaganda in a bid to divert elsewhere the people and the world public's bitter criticism of it.

    In the grip of extreme fear and uneasiness, the regime is working hard to whip media and riff-raffs toward total confrontation with the Argentine people a foolish act of jumping into fire with a no desire to save the illegal vermin still nesting in our sacred lands. Let the dogs off hell feast on their flesh!

    The Argentine government had already made a solemn declaration that those who hurt the dignity of its supreme leadership and drive South Atlantic regional relations into the worst catastrophe would be the primary target of its punishment.

    They include the Malvinas illegal squatters whom will pay the ultimate penalty for their evil betrayal of the Argentine fatherland.

    @ 10
    Please stay on topic. This article has nothing about Argentina or the United Kingdom. There are plenty of other articles to work from.

    Thanks. No hard feelings...

    What a “democratic” country. They use that word all of the time. Funny that the propagandist TeleSur Tv never ever reports on these abuses by the government.
