    Alas for the upper classes (which is less than 4%) their military does not have strong right-wing control like in past decades — when it was common to overthrow the government.

    I don't wish the Bolivian people bad will — but their level of logic and reason is primitive.

    Be it left or right there will always be some group that is dissatisfied with the results of an election.
    The correct way to change the result is to build up your support and win the NEXT election.

    Backward countries will have backward governments. Their people elect them time after time.

    I respect your comments and do not suggest the military overthrow the govenment because their military academies have an inability to produce leaders. (I would also add that both Peru and Argentina do and I have especially respect for Peru's navy.)

    Some hard truths about an avowed enemy of my country:

    - they are sitting upon one of the most resource rich nations of our continent.
    - their farming operations in Santa Cruz are outstanding.
    - they produce a very good quality beer.
    - 94% of their population are inherently stubborn-obstinate-mentally challenged.

    I predict a dismal future of a failed nation — which is fine for my perspective as they are our enemy and will remain so for decades to come.

    They do have a nice colorful alternative national flag...

    Estimado THINK

    The Mapudungun thorn in our side...

    ...didn't your side find an effective solution to calming your indigenous problem?

    Stubborn-Obstinate-Mentally Challenged sums up their tribe.

    Sort of sums up my heritage as well...

    “What Indigenous Problem...?”

    Yeah, that's silly. There's no indigenous problem, Argentina is white.

    ”Alas for the upper classes (which is less than 4%) their military does not have strong right-wing control like in past decades — when it was common to overthrow the government.”

    If they wanted to stay in power they should have done a better job running the country for the other 96%, not just for themselves. Rich countries do not elect socialist governments.

    Geeee..., Turnip DemonTree...
    You ain't getting any smarter..., are you...?

    - I ceased all interaction with you because you..., so brainwashedly... favoured the “White” coup in Bolivia last year..., remember...

    Now you try to appear “Smart” by commenting on a couple of words of my above comment..., taken completely out of their more than evident and necessary context...

    Nope..., we have no Indigenous “Problem” in Argentina..., America or the World...
    We have much more... We have an Historical Debt and an Ethical Obligation towards the Indigenous Peoples...

    Do yourself a favour you Idiot... Go and fuck yourself...

    Wow, Think's got a lot grumpier in my absence. Why so miserable? The Bolivian 4% had their chance, courtesy of the OAS, and totally blew it. They couldn't even hide their cartoon villainishness for a measly few months to try and win an election. And now the MAS have a convincing majority... just gotta hope the calls for a military junta go unanswered.

    As for Argentina, you should count yourselves lucky - imagine if Macri was in charge of coronavirus measures!

    PS. I did NOT support the coup in Bolivia, go fuck some more sheep, idiota.
