    Good now how about they keep their own ****ing people in their own ****ing borders; ungrateful bastards.

    Well, cheers for that.

    The South American leaders are saying the Organization of American States is not going to be ignored or usurped.
    I remember a similar idea in Europe in the 1980`s, the Western European Union, a defence pact for Western Europe only, excluding the US. Well, the US had a hissy fit over that one and threatened NATO members with all sorts of measures...until they calmed down and everything got watered down somewhat.

    Well, the article is pretty thin and just a head-line, but they will have 32 charter nations and Cuba is up for it as well.
    On the Forces side, I can`t see any cooperation apart from joint ex`s. ie, I cannot see a Joint South American Rapid Reaction Force appearing , we in the Euro-zone struggle with that sickly child
