    The Real aggressors in the world, we can plainly see are the Capialists, like shrewd shop owners they always have something nasty to gossip about people who are not shoveling their money into their consumerist furnaces, intoxicated in the rapture of their own avarice, they have existed since before the invention of the banking loan system, obviously as they invented it, and they are the usually the reason for every war.
    ... you can quote me on that if you want.

    Although not at all partial to the current political situation in Brazil I must admit that the comment made by Ernesto Araújo about the Matryoshka/Alberto Fernandez/Cristina, cannot be more graphyc...................and unfortunately an absolute possibility.

    Although not all to partial to the late Venezuelan Hugo..., gone some six years ago..., I must admit that I can't see any problem with the absolute possibility of Argie Alberto nursing a Lula and a Cristina Matryoshka in his honest Law professor's soul...

    'Leaks prove Lula conspiracy victim in Brazil'
    Lula's lawyers vow to take 'politically-motivated' case to UN to annul prison sentence, investigate conspiring officials.
    Lula's lawyers said they would take the ''politically-motivated'' case to the UN Committee of Human Rights in a bid to annul Lula’s prison sentence and launch an investigation on the role of public officials involved in the leaked conversations.
    Lula was leading the opinion polls in the run up to the 2018 election.
    Both Lula and Rousseff have called what has been going on in Brazil since 2016 impeachment a coup against elected leaders.

    Very well: Brazilian foreign minister Ernesto Araújo, president Jair Bolsonaro and even finance minister Paulo Guedes are unanimous in criticizing the choice of Argentine electors.

    So what?

    We all know who Araujo, Bolsonaro and the others are. We all know they are pissed off by Alberto Fernandez's overwhelming victory in the recent primary election and by his visit to Lula. We know they are not going to say pretty things about any of the Fernandez. Is that a reason to print a whole story based on Araujo's musings and Bolsonaro's irresponsible vitriol? I Think not.

    If MP absolutely wants to give a tribune to the Bolsonaros of this world, at least they could do a favour to their readers and add some variety of sources, adding from time to time those with a different take on issues.

    I can help but feel an all too familiar cold war scent. The shills are being too obvious. Both sides can go fuck themselves.

    I agree with you, Tarquin, but seriously, as a product concept, it's Art! It'll sell... ;)

    The only Russian mamushka doll is the one who benefited from Putin largeness named Drumf.
