URUGUAY / ARGENTINA / BRASIL / MERCOSUR: Mujica Will Defend Mercosur...'To The Death.'


     Though Brasil and Argentina...the big mean girls of Mercosur...the struggling LatAm trading union...are erecting new hurdles...Uruguay's President Jose Mujica says he will fight for Mercosur 'to the death.'
     Mujica said “the big countries in Latin America must understand that they also need us, the small guys. And they have to accept it humbly. You can’t go around merrily playing with fiscal issues, and with inflation”.
    “The Mercosur defects are our defects and we will fight them to the death without compromising and without giving up; nobody is going to give us prosperity, we have to fight for it,” he concluded.
