    Uruguay should take care of their half a dozen inhabitants before they disappear.

    What am I missing here? Since when is it a coup when the legal proceedings and the legislative process is following what is spelled out in the constitution? Venezuela is the only one left with coup mongers in South America. I think they are forgetting what a real coup is.

    The Tupas seditiously tried to take the country from an equally democratically elected government, murdering people on the way, but heh, who's bothered about the truth in Uruguay?

    Certainly NOT the likes of The Broad Fraud, the 'coalition' of the descendants or these murdering bastards, including Sendic, The Crook of ANCAP, now our Veep! His father was a murdering bastard par excellence as well as the forerunner of TMBOA in that he completed many years in the law school of the UYU University BUT NEVER TOOK THE EXAM!

    The Broad Fraud claimed that he did the course and was therefore qualified! The son, our illustrious Veep obviously learnt from his murderous father and claimed he did a genetics degree in CUBA, but even the Cubans have not backed him in his lies!

    So our children who rule us are against the 'coup'? They are like 10 YO UK children in the way they behave: no thinking ahead, always in the right, even when they are in the wrong and lie through their teeth when they are caught out. The difference is of course is that the UK children will grow and mature, go to university and make a success of their lives, the middle-aged children we have in our 'government' are stuck with what they are, odious lying bastards many of whom are semi-literate and demonstrably innumerate.

    Klingom will have us believe that it is not a LatAm problem and that of course proves conclusively that it is.

    The cocktail of Power + Money is the most potent and addictive narcotic. The more one has, more is necessary.

    You see, my esteemed Chris, the disastrous consequences that a British aristocrat mid-wifery brings to a baby country. In Uruguay´s case, I am speaking of lord Ponsonby.

    Try reality and research the “Tupas”.

    It is clear that the party they attempted (and failed) to take destroy were weak, they should have shot to death any and all Tupas from the get go.

    This failure to act decisively eventually ended with the Military rule.

    Spineless, just like most 'rulers' in LatAm.
