    What did we say about Argentina? The whole country is as bent as a nine bob note.

    Why does this not surprise anyone, we have known for years what a despicable country Argentina is. Cheats, liars, murderers, state kidnappers. Need we say anything more.

    Interesting article. Wasn't aware that Argentina was so corrupt. Thought things had got better following the overthrow of the Junta, not worse. Its a shame really. Hope any Politicians found to have had their fingers in the till are dragged through the Argentine Courts.

    Well if Argentine politicians can deceive the general public over corruption, isn't it theoretically possible that they could just as easily deceive over the national claim for the Falklands.

    That little thought should keep their braincells warm this winter :)

    At least artillo has a point, it is the argentine government that can not be trusted, after all their the currupt, lying education book writers of argentina, the people are just the lost lambs (or should i say blind idiots in the case of some of them on here) being led to the slaughter “Again”.

    Argentina has an Office of Anticorruption! That statement alone is an oxymoron.

    You guys don't condone corruption, do you?

    Mercopress is afraid to show just how biased its articles are. This article uses the word “corruption” against Argentina, but Argentines are not allowed to used the same word against the UK. Hiding UKs corruption doesn't make it go away.

    Lol Martin, are you still on about that, you do no your committing libel as well as infringement of copyright and breach of flicker terms and conditions don't you. Idiot.

    There is no prove that their was any corruption, in regards to the issue your referring too. As such mercopress can not report on any such curruption without committing libel themselves or by qouting from libellous comments/articles from others.

    So for gods skae martin drop your pathethic crusade against mecropress as its now becoming even more boring to see your posts, than it was to see the utter nonsense and fantasys like the american frogmen attaching bombs to moving argentine ships from british submarines, that you normally post.

    In otherwords martin, GET A LIFE MAN.

    No Martin i am not having any tantrum at all, but clearly you are which is evident by the fact you have posted the same post with the same link on nearly all the most recent news articles comments board. That to me, is nothing more then you acting like a child throwing a tantrum just because he didn't get what he wanted.

    As for your belittling comments, if you think they bother me in the slightest, then your wrong as they only go to show what a immature tantrum throwing cry baby and arrogant bully you are, and shows your inability to act maturely and post constructive comments.

    So martin why don't you go and stand on the naughty step and suck on your dummy, and not return until your able to post constructive and mature comments!
