    Kircherists are always supporting piquetes but they don't support this piquete for that reason: “Gov. Rios warned that the industry was already experiencing “problems” due to the Chilean blockade”
    haha BUT I REALLY DO SUPPORT THIS PIQUETE! It's funny that Kirchnerists say yes to the Argentine blockade against Malvinas but they are against this Chilean blockade haha but they are always like this. BLOCKADE BLOCKADE BLOCKADE! Fabiana Ríos, one day you'll have to give some of the money back to the people of Tierra del Fuego, don't you agree with me?

    Perhaps they now know what it is like to be blockaded, but i doubt it,
    double standards, but hey, this could spiral out of control, then what would Argentina do, call on the UN to pass another resolutions, or get help from the rest of south America, [still] Chile has a friend down there,
    looking after the FALKLANDS, then again perhaps Argentina will be friendly to Chile , go on be nice for a change ??

    xbarilxo, your observation is interesting and highlights the double standards (Briton sets this out) the Kirchnerites will go to to promote spin on their perceived position. If after 2-3 days poor Governor Rios is suffering, she should stand back and think about what her Government (central and provincial) has been inflicting on the Falklands for ONE YEAR! as i said before porbrecitos.....

    Pascua lama gold mining crossings into San Juan Argentina can be a good barganing chip, LAN chile is also a great candidate to deliver a strong message to santiago, Argentina could use this threat to annex chile since they are already helping UK's military in Malvinas ! or maybe they could make them disapeare since chile doesn't even punish people like pinochet.

    Thanks lads
    Argentina must learn that if you blockade someone unfairly,
    then you have no complaints when it is done back to you ,

    no complain here I think we should take this example and treat barrick gold trucks movng in and out of Chile at the border with San Juan Argentina the same way, I know for a fact that this issue would be resolved the next day, lucky for you people I am just another Argentine not a politician, britsh subject should go and tell their queen mama what their opinion is because no one here seems ineterested, or are this all people from Malvinas looking to their Argentine mother nation ???
