Peru makes minor show of support for Argentine sovereignty over the Falklands.
Mailites have a calm, level-headed response.
We seem to dish out aid to most of the world if Peru is getting any it should be stopped immediately.

So that's the friendly welcome we receive when we have given so much to the country, including aid when they had a quake. Peru's response: british out of south america, my response: stick paddington where the sun don't shine.

Pretty much all aid to Peru comes from the US or Spain - despite the fact that mailites seem to believe the UK is the world's only aid-donor and automatically shovels billions into anywhere that sounds a bit third-worldy.
I would suggest boycotting Peruvian goods, but Peru doesn't appear to produce much. Except hot air and the occasional dictator.

Yeah, Peru doesn't produce much - just things like gold, silver, coffee, cotton and sugar.
Now if the brazilian government starts to play up, all we have to do is stop buying their coffee, boycott Nandos and place a visa requirement on all Brazilians wishing to visit this country.

I shouldn't think Brazil will be too bothered, seeing as Nando's is South African.
Always wanted to go to Costa Rica and then Peru started calling as I have always wanted to see Machu Picchu/Nazca lines. I think my mind has now been made up.

The responses on here are brilliant - really amusing and a tad tragic! And I've just cancelled plans to holiday in Peru this year, or any other year come to that, this year I'll take my money back to Cost Rica thanks

I'm quite tempted to take a trip to Peru now, seeing as they're be no danger of running into Disgusted or Dave while I'm there. They might be a bit disappointed when they find out that Costa Rica is pro-Argentina too.
Then we've got this one advocating mudering a few Peruvians:
We should sail past & fire a few shells their way. Nah just kidding ... Well actually no i'm not. I'm sick of this blame Britain attitude. We stick our oars into a lot of things for the betterment of this world & get little or no thanks. Granted in the past we haven't got things spot on, but on this, we are. This, like most battles, is about oil and/or bad tempered nations rattling the saber. Nothing more, nothing less. These countries need to tread carefully as in the future, their calls for aid or arms may go unheeded.

...and this one, which sounds a lot like it wants to rape Kirchner:
i fancy the argentina bird christina i want to put something in her mouth and say shut up
