Who: Thaksin Shinawatra, Prime Minister, Thailand
Where: Council on Foreign Relations, New York, NY

Nestor Kirchner es Carlos Menem?

Puede ser.
La Argentina pasó hace cuatro años la crisis económica y social más atormentada que recuerda cualquier argentino vivo. Todavía sobreviven profundas huellas sociales de ese derrumbe colectivo. ¿Qué quedó entonces de aquel gobierno que se había prometido austero y frugal?

Hugo Chavez: “Bush is the Devil”

As if we really needed any more proof that Hugo Chavez is a delusional nut (or, perhaps, a brilliant strongman, in either case he’s still a thug).
“The devil came here yesterday,” Chavez said, referring to Bush’s address Tuesday.
