    is not this old news,
    another case of argentina covering up her defaults ,
    to convince her blind and dumb friends, that she is a changed society,

    but behing the facard, she is as deadly as a rattlesnake,
    [even if she does have her teeth removed ]

    @ 3 you have nothing to do with Argentina, or the Falklands, apart from being a professional moron and a fake Native Citizen of the United States of America, do you have a life of your own?

    Come on Argentina, poor little Paraguay. Where is your LatAm solidarity? ls this the way to make friends & be popular?
    The power lines could even be on the land that you have stolen from Paraguay.

    I thought initially that this was an energtransfer issue, but now I think there is more to it.

    This is Argentina dumping MAJOR PUNISHMENT on Paraguay
    because Paraguay is stopping 'Friend Chavez' from joining the Mercosur club -
    Argentina needs Venezuela in its club to avoid its huge northern Mercosur partner, Brasil, from dominating affairs.
