    I see Exbrain is back ... a waste of space with nothing to say. Comes of being young and gay I suppose!

    The article is more interesting. The visit was short for all the fuss about Argentina's importance. There was no mention of 'you know where' which is unusual as Argentina loves its neighbours and partners to stress their support. Brazil would have been fully aware of that but no mention here, or in any other english language newspaper, including the Argentine press. Not yet anyway.

    Conclusion = Argentina would love the support but Brazil didn't want to go there!

    I wonder why ??

    (I don't doubt the next entry will be something childish by Exbrain, who claims to be 20 years old but whose comments suggest around 12)

    Redhoyt believes the FI is more important than it actually is. That the British archipelago was not mentioned reflects the fact that BR and ARG have more important common interests to be discussed.

  • Redhoyt

    On the contrary TIT, I believe that the FI are not deserving of the attention lavished upon them by Argentina. However recent history indicates that Argentina takes EVERY opportunity not only to promote its claim but to emphasise the support of its neighbours.

    Which makes this report, unusual!

    First paragraph: No big deal, taking a side in a sovereignty dispute is not the same as denial of services so no problem there.

    Second Paragraph: Military'll have to take that up with the UK (if you dare). Oil prospecting....we're doing that not the UK so the UK is not guilty of any “exploitation of hydrocarbons” Sooner you get it through your thick skulls the concept of what a British overseas territory actually is the better, maybe then you'll stop embarressing yourselves with such innacurate rhetoric.

    “President Rousseff in a special gesture towards Argentina’s human rights policy and her own government’s incipient approach to Brazil’s dictatorial past which remains locked to any revision by an amnesty law dictated by the military in 1979, ....”.

    May 1, 2010: 'The Brazil Supreme Court Rules that 1979 Amnesty Law Should Continue to Protect Torturers' (US news sub-editor's terminology). The Brazil Supreme Court voted 7-2 to reject a motion to modify a 1979 law that provides amnesty to those who committed torture under Brazil's military dictatorship.

    Can you imagine the outcry if Jacob Zuma back-tracked on the reconciliation agreement that was part of the destruction of Apartheid in South Africa.
    Equally, any move in Brasil to re-open the amnesty package agreed at the end of Brasil's military era - especially with a one-sided re-opening, would be a social and political disaster for the country.

    Just as disastrous would be a two-sided re-opening, for this would place Dilma firmly in the dock for her own terrorist activities, which certainly involved murder by the international terrorist group of which she was leader.

    Better all round to 'let sleeping dogs lay'.

    Re. 22:
    'in the dock” = the accused in the courtroom.
    Dilma would not go anywhere near an even-handed revision of Brasilian law on this matter - if she was convicted even on a lesser charge, she would be caught by the Ficha Suja law and would be debarred from all further political or administrative office in Brasil.

    I know what you mean whith in the dock, but it's funny that you call her a “terrorist” haha, it's like people don't care, because everybody knows her story of life. Bush is a terrorist, Blair is a terrorist, Aznar is a terrorist, and there are more of these.

    @ 26 If you want to know what I think about hatred read Che Guevara's writings. Even though I HATE the fact that he left Argentina for good, I love his teachings, and I recommend you read what he has to say, it will give you a brain, something British lack. Sometimes I can say lots of things, but I usually don't hate people, at least normal people (you are not normal). I hate liars who say they're one thing but they're not what they say they are lol I hate rich people who like to play the poor, I don't hate rich people who say they're rich, but I hate it when they lie about it. Yes, I know that I called Cristina an idiot, well, she should have kicked that rat Julio Cobos in the butt, but he's still there, getting money for nothing, she should never call the IMF for help again, anymore, never get upset because that father of the apes (Obama) is not coming to Argentina. She, if I must say, is making the best government that Argentina has ever had, what I really HATE is that there's no other choice than Cristina, all those politicians in Congress are worthless, big amounts of money for nothing more than ñoquis, it would be nice if we had many good people as good candidates.
    I know your encefalograma es plano, but try this link, I'm sure you can learn something:
    “Hatred as an element of the struggle; a relentless hatred of the enemy, impelling us over and beyond the natural limitations that man is heir to and transforming him into an effective, violent, selective and cold killing machine. Our soldiers must be thus; a people without hatred cannot vanquish a brutal enemy.”
    PS:I like big juicy melons.
    I don't care what you think of my anger/rants, actually I don't care what people think of me (los mando a todos a lpmqlp) haha, anyway, it won't make me stop being an angry and hateful little person, I thank God everyday for that :9
    PS #2: I can be a pendex rebolú, pero voy de frente y no la careteo.

    @ 36 Isolde, as I said, you must be isolated. I don't want to change the world, I couldn't, not even that guy Jesus could, not even Gandhi or Martin Luther King. We must change ourselves, so you have no excuses.

    PS. I don't like coffee, I like fernet or branca menta.
    Don't be scared, we're not in Las Malvinas yet, but we will, so hurry up with the cake old lady :) You love fight Isolde, don't you? :)

    @ 37 briton, You can get older, but wiser hmmmmmmm
    You seem to be pretty soft, but anyway, I don't think you know what politeness is.

    politeness is being polite, am i not most of the time,
    are you some of the time, its much easier to reply to a comment, just reply.
    but some give stupid and offensive and this encourages retaliation and so it goes on, sometimes not understanding someone is taken out of context,
    lack of understanding, or peoples sense of humour,
    [an idiot is not always the fool, and a fool is not always an idiot]
    but both can be the joker in the pact ??

    subjects in this site try too hard to become a part of Argentina even if that means coming here to get insulted and abused by them. perverts and masochist suffer the same psychodependency, the less they are wanted the harder they try.
