Excuse my impertinence, but Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and several other Latin American countries deserve much of the blame for the recent forced exit of former Paraguayan President Fernando Lugo.
They have remained silent before so many violations of democratic rights in Nicaragua, Bolivia, Venezuela and Cuba in recent years that they have helped create a climate of “anything goes” in the region.
Come on. I feel certain that Paraguayan leaders were not thinking about Venezuela when they planned Fernando Lugo's ouster. If anything, they thought about Honduras, where just waiting it out gets what you want. They also probably thought about Brazil, and figured Dilma Rousseff would not want to go to the trouble of reversing events.
At any rate, regime change and, say, attacks on the media are apples and oranges. Both involve democracy, of course, but someone plotting the former will not be considering the response to the latter.
