    like the picture says, no Christina its a ship, not a block of wood [der]
    but hey, what a great port, great workmanship, all Argentina needs now is to fill it with ships, but with the exclusion of the Falklands this may present a problem. if they stop at the Falklands, then she will ban them from her new port, but if they promise not to stop at the Falklands, then they can stop at her new port, [very clever, whished we thought of that, very clever]

    Cristina. Please don't run for a second presidency, and leave. Take your circus troupe with you.

    Don't forget to leave us a home phone number, and address where you will be staying, so we can come arrest you when the curtain closes.

    Muchas Gracias.

    “Buenos Aires cruise terminal can berth four 300-metres cruise vessels at the same time”

    Not if the UK decides to invoke counter-measures to the Argentinan Senate pronouncement to ban/imprison people and companies operating in the oil industries in Island EEZs.

    Just one small destroyer, and a quiet word in the ear of the tourist cruise companies to relocate to Montevideo, Rio, etc,, should be enough to cause the Argentinian Senate to develop an amnesia wrt its pronouncement.

    To be polite to your neighbours cost you nothing.
    being rude to your so called enemies could cost you dear.
    for it may be better to share something,
    than end up with nothing ?

    a cruise terminal couldn't be considered nothing, we did share Malvinas Argentina for over 170 years, I think british illegal aliens have over stayed they welcome. we have enought resources in Argentina to outlive many bitish generations, sit tight this is going to be a long and really bumpy ride, I doubt EU will have any credibility after they are done murdering all the Muslims in Libya, Argentina can gain huge political grounds on british greed, europids by themslves are their own worst enemies.
