    And Hugo isn't dead, and Fidel isn't dead and they are not sure about Nestor. What a bunch of freaking idiots. I really wonder what the hell these freaks are smoking and when the poor people of Venezuela are finally going to stand up to them and toss them out on their asses.

    So will they turn up like the uninvited guests? Will everyone else ignore them? Will it be televised?

    I am guessing they lie because there will be a percentage of the ignorant public that will believe them. But if they are suggesting illegality, they might also consider the questionable way them were admitted in the first place.

    Why don't all these countries do themselves a favor and just abolish Mercosur all together. What a deplorable laughing stock! Don't they have even an ounce of dignity!

    I guess the same forces that let such circuses as the IMF and the UN continue to exist are the same forces that keep this Mercosur circus going. It should have been dead decades ago.

    Delusional! Delcy and Maduro are officially delusional! This is the entire issue with Venezuela in a nutshell, Maduro and his band of merry idiots think they have a divine right control over the people of their country as well as any other South American country or organization. In a group of 5 major players, if 3 of them say your out? That's something else Maduro and his merry band of idiots doesn't understand......democracy.

    What Delcy believes or claims, is totally different from reality...VZ is one step from being kicked out altogether...the sooner the better, as they have nothing positive to offer, anyway.
