Do we really pay these people to represent us? My daughter, 5, would have less problems to understand what they are voting, Reply I’m not sure what’s worse, the streaming or the lack of comprehension skills of these people. Reply luisito… mi rey… por favor tomate un vasito de agua… respira… tomtaelo con calma… #relajateypeinate Reply I’ve been wanting to punch this Antigua&Barbuda guy for a while now. He thinks way too highly of himself, like he’s the caribbean version of Churchill. Sit down! Reply As much as we don’t like it, the Antigua guy is making valid points, this is not a role for a SG… However, I deeply thank Almagro for choosing a path and sticking to it… Few men at that level can say the same… Reply Jamaica reads from an Iphone. That’s style Reply Is Jamaica reading a Whatsapp message? Reply Jamaica was the only one voting in favor of the agenda. Remember that they paid their petrocaribe debt in 2015 with a bond… Reply Just want to thank CC for this liveblog. For someone living in Australia that needs to hit the bed since its past midnight on a weekday, being able to know that I’ll wake up to a step by step narration of the events is just awesome Reply Did Brazil even take a position? Reply Ah ok, los mediadores están en unasur según Ecuador, the fact they’re there while this is happening gives out a clear message… Reply Chile keeps screwing us… Reply The US Embassador saying “Todas y Todos” OMFG Reply So, let’s vote to discuss this democratic hot potato, but let’s surely not vote to take any effective action. Reply If this situation on the country does not merit the outright “dictatorship” label, I don’t know what does. Nations have no friends, only interests. It’s sad to see how these institutions work. No wonder so much madness went through on the 20th century. Reply I am having flashbacks to 2014 and the international pressure for “dialogue”. That resulted in two meetings, one public and the other closed. That nicety concluded, the government immediately continued with repression as usual. There was no result. None. What the hell makes them think anything will be different now? Reply Wait til the Ven. military finally, if ever, react to the complete Cubanization of Venezuela–bingo, Carta Democratica immediately. Next step now, final subversion/delay by Ven. Govt. of the RR. Reply Yup! The last two doors for a peaceful solution slammed shut. Reply People are starving and dying, but there’s no real hurry to discuss this… Reply What went wrong in that house? Or genes? Reply Upaaa! Chavez no era trabajador? Reply Holy shit! Look at her go! Reply Delcy? WTF? Are there any psychiatrists in the house? What is that? Reply “… Pero, eso sí, los sicarios no pierden ocasión de declarar públicamente su empeño en propiciar un diálogo de franca distensión que les permita hallar un marco previo que garantice unas premisas mínimas que faciliten crear los resortes que impulsen un punto de partida sólido y capaz de este a oeste y de sur a norte, donde establecer las bases de un tratado de amistad que contribuya a poner los cimientos de una plataforma donde edificar un hermoso futuro de amor y paz.” Reply where we can watch Delcy’s speech again? I missed it. I’d like to see how ludicrous she is. Reply 13:50 Go rinse your eyes with bleach Seriously, dont do this to yourself… Reply Sooo… is there going to be a vote? If so, when? Sorry if I appear clueless? Reply If you are clueless, so am I. Reply I missed the whole thing. Where could I watch the whole session? Thanks! Reply What happens now? Reply Solo falta que digan que Carter puede ayudar al dialogo….NMJ Reply Sorry won’t do! Jimmy has been advocating as of late against governments that use excessive force against their citizens, well , maybe he can be influenced to be flexible in his advocacy again… Reply https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sf-UI2BBRws The above link shows a session last week where in preparation to the session today, Bolivia’s Quoroga basically spells out in lucid terms exactly what is going on in Venezuela. For speaking on the fly like this, it is obvious that he has considered the issues at depth and for a long time. Is there a link for today’s session? I missed it owing to work. Reply for anyone wanting to watch the session, here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvg0nfFKQrg Reply for anyone wanting to watch the whole session after the fact, here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvg0nfFKQrg Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
