America-less Organization of the Americas

Apparently, the Latin American countries are forming an alternative to the Organization of the Americas without the US or Canada being involved.

I'm sure that many in the US will use it as further proof of the anti-Americanism of Latin America or something like that. In reality, though, it makes perfect sense. The Latin American countries have a commonality that doesn't include the US and Canada.

I am not so happy about the announcement that the new organization will support Argentina's claim to the Falklands. I know it's a major sticking point for Argentina, but it's a settled issue and the residents have long supported the status quo.
