    As a matter of fact there were four sons of high ranking air force officials in that plane.
    Four criminal bastards.
    Sons of military bastards.
    Fathers and sons purged from the government by the Kirchner’s years ago.

    The private jet aviation has emerged enormously this year and many businessmen and companies started chartering the jet.

    Nice, what these articles don't say is that European narcos will get really angry about this. Lust for cocaine is everywhere, even in Europe, yes sir! I can see the face of Mexicans behind this. In BsAs there are lots of Mexican narcos.

    Xbox, there are plenty of narco's in BaAs, and their nationality aren't Mexican, but Argentinians, in Santiago de Chile you can find plenty of Chilean narco's. Funny how you like to blame other nationalities but refuse to look from your own yard. Mexican narcos and Argentinians do share a couple similarities, they look like each other and speak

    another example of the misuse of the medical flag. I remember in 1982 the Argentine hospital ship parked in the middle of Stanley harbour unloading special forces and exocet missiles!

    How does an ex-military afford a private jet? Is corruption never questioned in Argentina?
    I remember looking at a beautiful house near the US Ambassadors residence in Palermo that was owned by ex-military. Very glam, great location and I asked the Agent how someone that was in the Military could afford it and she told me they probably had it signed over from a Jewish family in exchange for their lives during the 70s...and then laughed.
    Really really sick people on Argentina.

    What I find very funny about all the Argentinian posters is that they research very old news and/or 1x occurrences in other countries and then try to compare it to the commonplace happenings in their own foul and corrupt country. Very sad really.

    Marcos, what is your point? Do you think there is more drug use than in Argentina? Maybe, who cares? We have more money to spend on recreational drugs so what? Lots of people do drugs here, does it mean we are unproductive? Nope. Does it mean we are not creative? Nope. So where are you going with this?

    In Spain they're investigating the links between the pilots and Mexican narcos, but not only Mexican, Colonbians too (Angie Sanclemente Valencia) hahaha I was right! As usual :)

    I know you can't read Spanish, but anyway :)

    Xbox clown, they may investigate Mexican Narcos and Colombians. In this case the drug dealers, were not but ARE ...Argentinians, god knows Argentinians with Chilean roots. All speak Spanish, and look like each other.

    Contently proven that Argentinians are as stupid as they are corrupt:

    She is very pretty so she doesn't have to be very smart :) but I bet she is at least smart enough not to put her child on the tracks in front of a moving train like your people do.

    So, we're in the mood fred, we're in the mood. Here are some more videos for you. You know fred, in a world with almost 7 billion people, stupity is everywhere, in the USA and Mexico too (I don't forget you're a Mexican :) (it is hilarious) (don't get burned) (sadly she couldn't send the message) (a supreme idiot, he doesn't know where the door is)

    The link I posted before sounds to me like a well educated citizen of the United States of America :) That's first world education at its best :)

    For these videos you need to type the words USA idiot train, or USA idiot drunk, etc. etc. or anything with USA and idiot.

    PS: I know you'll love this one too:

    The welsh pussy is waiting for me to insult him :)

    Xbox, I am not sure if you realize it but insults coming from someone so obviously so inferior mean nothing to the person you are trying to insult.
    It is kind of funny the videos you are posting and trying to compare the dumb Argentinian lady almost killing her kid to a drunk lady and/or teenagers, are not really fair comparisons are they? OR are you trying to say even drunk Americans or American teens have more sense than an adult sober Argentinian? That comparison is probably very true.
    I guess that is why when your people come here they are always working in low skill jobs. ”Yes I want lemon, not a lime for god sakes, lemon, it's yellow, yellow!! stupid latins working as waiters. Life can be very difficult here, hahahaha

    @ 28 That joke about the lemon and lime is as old and shaggy as your mother's vagina fred! Don't get mad fred, stupidity is part of people's everyday lives :) You should exercise your sense of humor a little more :)

    PS: No, I don't think you're an American, you'll be it, only if you believe in reincarnation :)

    Oh that isn't a joke, it happens almost every day. and it is a huge pain. Don't know why the most simple tasks can't be completed by your people.

    I know and you know you and El Thinko cyber stalked me, so keep calling me what ever you want. I don't really care. To me it is like a filthy beggar screaming on a corner as I drive by, meaningless and forgetful.

    @ 31 Well, you're not Dutch. Máxima Zorreguieta is not Dutch, but she will be Queen of The Netherlands. So it looks like being Dutch is not that important! So why the tantrums?
