    This is an ongoing joke. CFK and her late husband have gotten away with reporting false information during their entire presidential terms... Crime DOES pay...

    I do wonder how this happens. Argieland isn't complying with the rules. It really only has two choices; comply or leave. Why does it keep getting chance after chance? It's always a case of kicking the can down the road.

    @2 Because the IMF do not want to be the excuse for the failings of Kirchnerism. If they hasten the collapse in any way CFK will adopt the victim pose and blame the IMF for their mismanagement of the economy. Sometimes it is better to stand back and watch the people to blame take the rap, even if it takes just a little longer.

    Its too late to sanction Argentine now. The IMF will let the new Prez try and figure it out.
    They'll need an IMF bailout anyway and everyone knows it.

    Here's yankeeboy, squealing with delight at the thought of Argentines “fighting over the last bag of beans.”
    Argentines may fight about many things--they'll never do over beans.
    I thought I told you before YB. Argentines eat the best beef in the world, period. Beans is the last item any cook with any shred of self respect would consider.
    And you said you lived in Argentina?

    Due to the generally compromised nature of the IMF a compliance/non-compliance rating issued by them is so weak as to now be meaningless.

    9. Reekie, beans are a metaphor.
    I can't believe I have to explain that...
    Gads you're so stupid its flabbergasting.

    When I lived in Argentina I watched on the news while a bunch of Rgs hacked away at cows on an overturned truck on the highway. All bloody running away with all the various cow parts they could carry.

    They're animals
    and
    its it will be even worse than in 2001.
    even worse

    @13 YB Is surprise about a cow been taken away. But is not surprise about the police in the USA torturing killing innocent people every day. Your police state is going to improve soon? Or will get worse :-)
    Maybe we should give the USA police more guns.... money money also, and of course more power

    CLARIFICATION

    An individual posting in this forum under the identity of Enrique Massot apparently due to a disagreement of opinion with another identity Chronic which has been bringing the rest of us here to complete boredom. It is completely normal and common for the pro-Kirchner Cámpora fanatics misstate pro-Falklands posters excerpts completely out of context to purposely change their meanings. (See numerous vile examples by the Cámpora trolls in the Mercopress archives.)
    Unable to cope with dissent, the said Massot poster has resorted to a form of harassment and abuse to innocent contributors that think he's being thin skinned and absolutely ridiculously acting persecuted. (Typical Argentine by the way... Sort of like we sent our our battle cruiser after attacking your territory and you sunk it...resulting in 30 years of incessant wailing...)
    Below is actually the clear truth about his countrymen in an accurate context:

    32 Conqueror - May 18th, 2015 - 03:03 pm
    @26. “…Argies lie as a matter of course. You do it yourself....” (Accurate by the way.)

We should realize that, become a protectorate and name Conqueror as Minister of Truth. Finally, all will be solved.” (Really Enrique, about the most accurate thing you can say about your countrymen and Conqueror would bring more truth to your government.)

    I apologize to readers and other posters for the inconvenience. Please understand that for as long as this Massot individual is keeps boring us to tears, I will need to follow up with necessary clarifications.

    How many years does it take an Argentinean to do math and collate information the same way that hundreds of other countries have been able to for decades?

    I blame it on their education system. Too much fascist propaganda and not enough actual education.

    20>lol

    Due to the partisan nature that the rhetoric here has been reduced to - many of you non-Anglo/European/Yankee readers/posters are obviously fatigued by the constant onslaught of negativity towards rotting roadkill. [NOTE: It would be so much more convenient to use the abbreviation RG than the aforementioned descriptor and I pledge to do so upon the discontinuance of the use of the term vulture to refer to a hedge fund or its owner.] Most people - irrespective of geography - have an almost irrational affinity for the place of their birth. To do otherwise would reflect a certain lack of one aspect of humanity. Having said that, not all places are created equal. It's even common for an immigrant to have an inordinate longing for a land that abused and reviled his own family. This is reflected in many of the diaspora peoples. Acknowledging this phenomena, we are still confronted with the poor behavior of nations towards the citizens of the world as well as their own. While no state is immune from occasional error some states are more problematic in their day to day behavior. N. Korea is one such. At the other end of the scale we have those states like Canada who seldom offend much of anyone.

    Review the links below and judge for yourself if there is a pattern as to the recent behavior of Argentina with respect to the citizens of the world as well as its own:

    @9. Argies don't “eat the best beef in the world”. They can't afford it. Maybe they eat the chemically induced food.
    @16. At least they don't eat them. Like the argie “police” do.

    Interesting information in your links. No doubt Argentina has to much to do to improve in several fields. It has already begun.
    For example, a whistleblower recently disclosed money transfers from HSBC bank accounts in the U.S., Argentina and other countries to secret accounts in the HSBC Swiss subsidiary. The scheme allows tax evasion, money laundering, hiding proceeds from corruption. Only in Argentina, thousands of accounts were discovered.
    “Argentine citizens sent some 3.5 billion dollars in the space of just two years to 2,552 undeclared bank accounts in the Swiss subsidiary of HSBC.”
    http://www.buenosairesherald.com/article/181589/argentina-ranked-21st-in-list-of-secret-hsbc-accounts-

    In this respect, Transparency International notes: “Leading financial centres in the EU and US need to join with fast-growing economies to stop the corrupt from getting away with it. The G20 needs to prove its global leadership role and prevent money laundering and stop secret companies from masking corruption.”
    www.transparency.org/cpi2014/results

    Much of the corruption, tax evasion and money laundering originating in developing countries is possible thanks to support from developed countries' financial institutions .
    The state of Delaware in the U.S. is “top of the pile, beating the British Virgin Islands, Belize or Liechtenstein as the best place to hide wealth...”
    http://www.buenosairesherald.com/article/181589/argentina-ranked-21st-in-list-of-secret-hsbc-accounts-
    Russian arms dealerViktor Bout used two Delaware addresses, reported Business Day in 2012.
    http://www.buenosairesherald.com/article/181589/argentina-ranked-21st-in-list-of-secret-hsbc-accounts-

    Corruption is a cancer that needs to be attacked in all fronts.
