But the government says it is legally unable and also unwilling to pay holdouts at a more favourable rate than the creditors who accepted its swaps. Lie. They want to get more money than the legal money :) that just can't be, Mr. Griesa.
Accept what we offer, or don't accept it :)
I wouldn't lose much sleep over the hold outs, as a matter of fact I would have used Argentine justice system and squash any repayments of any interests on the original loan..Feb 04th, 2011 - 11:07 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Argentina will continue to have problems in the credit markets until she can show that she is not a thief.
They're all the same anyway. Don't care about justice. Only when they feel like oh, you're taking my money away from me :) Let them cry.Feb 04th, 2011 - 11:54 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Doesn't fit the context that all the argentinian posters use it for either, does it?
Because it's literally impossible for a government to commit an act of piracy, especially on land or in this case..on islands.

Iceland Debt Crisis has been “Solved” by an “Argentinean Style” restructuring of their so called “Debt” AND a extremely generous bail out from the IMF……..
Iceland default was about 5 Billion U$S = 16.666 $ per inhabitant
Argentina’s default was about 95 billion U$S = 2.375 $ per inhabitant
Icelanders are, as a matter of fact, paying a smaller percentage of their “debt” from their own pockets than Argentineans.
And rightly so…….
Most of that debt was a Credit Circus organized by smart London Bankers…..
