    What a truck load of horse manure this article is!

    And its English !!!

    Are you sure, Mercopress, that President Kirchner: ”Serenely has supported the opposition charges”
    Don’t you mean endured?

    Anyhow, luckily we still have some journalists with style:

    El País
    Le Monde
    Der Spiegel
    The Guardian
    The New York Times
    The five finest news-organs in the World……
    The Wiki-League!

    Yea, this article was beyond lip service to Kirchner, I dunno what that's all about, it was like repulsively biased. I'm not saying Cristina's terrible, I'm not sayin she's good either, but I'm just sayin this article ready like Cristina wrote it herself, lol.

    This is really good
    “•Devastating criticism of the UK's military operations in Afghanistan by US commanders, the Afghan president and local officials in Helmand. The dispatches reveal particular contempt for the failure to impose security around Sangin – the town which has claimed more British lives than any other in the country.”

    Didn't the Wikileaks stuff include something about Cristina's mental health? Reading what you lot write I can see that mental health issues are a big problem for Argentina :-)

    What is there to explain? They think CFK is nuts, and I bet they are not the only ones! I told you months ago that EVERYONE in DC thought TImmerman and CFK were crazy and no one took them seriously.

    Do you Argies hate that all of my posts are becoming reality? hahaha

    I really don’t know what you are laughing at, what the yanks have said abt the Argentineans have yet to come out, as for afghan, at least the brits and other nato countries are there, and not cowards like Argentinean soldiers hiding at home, yes the brits are the best, just because the yanks don’t like the way we do things, does not make the yanks right does it,
    is it not the yanks that bomb by mistake, but others get the blame, but wiki leaks has very little on the UK, very miner stuff that we expected,
    on the other hand the world did not expect, Iran getting rockets from north Korea, insulting the Italian and French leaders, calling the Russians thieves, Libyans stupid, Iranians lies, [][] and Argentina is yet to come, so forget about wiki leaks around the world, and just wait till its your turn, I wonder what the yanks will have to say about ARGENTINA
    Any guesses anyone, [if interested]

    The article is very poor. Immediatist. Without time perspective.
    I would wait the analysis of El País, de España. A wiki-league member, as Think asserted.
    It´s usually very accurate on Argentina profiles.

    Perhaps there are some interesting points to be made here but the poor skill of the author obscures rather than illuminates. Run-on-sentences, lack of organization, missing transitions and grammatical/mechanical errors all seemed to have slipped by the editor. I have taught English composition at all levels to native and non-native speakers alike. My impression is that this was written by a more or less average thirteen year-old native speaker. Please follow up with something more focused and written by an adult.

    I really can' t believe how can be toke as seriously the soposed concern from the us state appartment, regarding the mental health of a president, only an idiot would believe it, in a magazine from here, it was argued last year that c. f. k. is bipolar, in case that it's truth, ¿what's the problem with that?, i dont think she does not have money to buy the best medicines to have a good quality of life.
    On the other hand, it was obvious that her, or untill one moth ago, former president kirchner, would lead all the preferences of the people for next elections, the true point is that most oponent politicians are 100 tiems worst that the k, i said in ay oportunitys,and we all know it, they only had the chance last year of becomig into the winners of the last elections, because the popularity of the governemnt had fall after the agrarian conflict, but most them are so uselss and shamefull that they could not even to capitalize that triunph, this the worst year of the congress in 27 years of democracy, just more than 60 laws could be sanctioned, these idiots thought that because they have a landslide in both chambers, they were going to do whatever they want, and were going to override the government, but they are so moron that they could not even show that they are a better alternative, they thought that opossing to all the measures of the government, was enought to show that they are a better chance for next year.
    You all know just one part of our reality, you have no iodea about what we heard every day from our shamefull politicians.
    Only ricardo alfonsin and a few leftist politicians are a serious alternative, however if none of them won, then i really hope that cristina is reelected, there is no any other better chance, like us or not, we must recognize.

    “Do you Argies hate that all of my posts are becoming reality? Hahaha”

    I don’t know why you are laughing your morons in US has jeopardize the whole diplomacy of US. Haha

    From now on yanks will be treaty like if they have leprosy even though by its “Allies”. Haha

    US its falling in the worst manner and the yanks are in state of deny.

    Yanks are more stupid that anyone thought.

    What US says or think about Argentina its irrelevant as they are not our allies they never were and will never be. Who cares? Who can take serious US?


    The Yanks view “Mr. Camerun as weak and superficial”. Haha

    But for you its a hammer on your genitals without anesthesia. Haha

    Now Britain is hated in Europe, in Latin America, in Middle East, not trusted in Asia and a laugh for Americans. Haha
    All made in Britain.

    WikiLeaks cables: Prince Andrew bats for Britain - at taxpayers' expense

    “those in responsible positions in the US should have listened to the British and learned from our experiences as a colonial power”
    (How to steal more land around the World?)

    Hey fredbdc take at look..
    “Snapped the duke: 'No surprise there. The Americans don't understand geography. Never have”
    We already know that, 20% of Americans can not find their own country on a map!
