    Hypocrisy is the state of pretending to have beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie.

    I am not happy for the death of this son of a bith, i wanted him in prison like all the rest of the genocides, anyway the history judges much better than all of us, and this shit wont scape from that.

    Its nice to see Argentineans acknowledge and appose what there former leaders had done, and disagrees with there decisions, the first step to excepting that the war was wrong, perhaps now to give peace a chance is a good thing ?

    I think his 'dementia' started back in the 70s. Unfortunately, he was in good company and no one noticed.

    Regarding all the breast beating you Argentinians are indulging in on this thread: are you familiar with the phrase 'you get the government you deserve'? with your inability to keep a proper democratic government for your country you opened the door to animals like Massera, it might be impalatable but the Junta was YOUR responsibility, admit that and learn from it.

    Having never lived under a system like this i can never understand how bad it must have been, i'm glad Argentina has moved on from this, even thought i disagree with the nation.

    As long as she can drop people like some of these aggressive argentine bloggers, then the skies the limit. Argentina is a nice place I hear on the grapvine, perhaps one day, more will see it
