You never hear from them at the U.N. You never hear about protests, or riots, or corruption in government. You never hear them waging war, or attacking their neighbors, you don't hear them complaining about other countries actions, or other countries policies. They kinda of seem like they have it down pat. They are energy self sufficient, from what I hear their economy is fairly sound and growing ( don't follow it that closely mind you ). Overall, they seem like a very secure in their sovereignty type of country, that decided to rely on themselves rather than others, look at themselves for solutions before begging other countries, and I in my short term knowedlge of South America can't think of any major battle they have been involved with. They don't seem to have the crime and drug issues you hear about so much in other south american countries... Is it just lack of news, and exposure, or do they simply have it right? rely on ourselves to figure out our issues, look to our people for solutions, and lets everyone else worry about their own issues. For as large of a country as they are, you would think you would hear more from them, but to me it seems like they are content letting the rest of the world worry about the rest of the world and they are just down there in relative peace with no major issues, and no interest in being the savior of the rest of the world... No one wants to bomb them... Should we take a page out of their playbook?
