    And in return a signature on a meaningless OAS document?

    Zzzzzz old news.
    Is nice to see that even the hated yanks support our cause and some like Cameron and Rotted are getting jealous.
    Get used to it :-))

    You don't read much, do you MoreCrap? Just the headlines. The US State Department's attitude has not changed in decades, and was much the same before 1982. That attitude is to support the notion of 'negotiations', nothing more.

    Not much really, is it?

    Hey, the article is about
    the series of slaps on the wrist of Argentina,
    the capitulation of Argentina, and
    the iceing of Timerman by the USA.

    It will be a long time before Argentina sees any change from the USA now.

    Stupid man, stupid action.
    Who suffers? - Argentina.

    I too read the article as the Argentine Government taking on the US and realising it takes more than a big ego to achieve success on that front. Slapped wrists indeed.

    Slapped wrists indeed...to the Brits of course or if you prefer “Obama Slaps Britain in the Face Again”

    @5 so Isolde, How much would it be to run the country? let's say 5 years with a 30 day out? As far as Nico doing anything with “El Campo” ?... it will definitely affect your management proposal ...... ;-))

    @9Artillero601,
    By your posts you seem the most logical Argentine on here.
    l'm sure we could find work in higher management for you.
    lf we made you Superintendant of Parks & Gardens, you could be Nico's boss(& others like Marcos, Axel etc).

    Tristan and Isolde - locked in an Arthurian lovelorn tryst for a lifetime of separation.
    Our very own Heloise and Abelard (Pere-Lachaise Cemetery in Paris; next grave to Jim Morrison).
    I guess we have found your real name, Art. . . . . Tristan!

    @11 & 12 etc,
    You all presume far too much, l was merely offering the man a responsible job if(when?)we take over the running of Argentina.
    @13,
    l would if l could, alas & alack, l do not have such power.
    (but who is going to run Parks & Gardens? we want someone who will make NicoDin actually do some work!).

    ”Specifically left out was Foreign Affairs minister Hector ‘Twitter’ Timerman (...)”

    Is it my impression, or are Mercopress's editors angrier than usual?

    17, I think you're right, lately some colonial governor in South Argentina is late with the payments.

    @16Artillero601,
    lf l, personally am running the country, then the job is yours!
    But l want results. Failure means banishment to Chubut, where you can have many a cosy fireside chat with Sr Think.

    Timerman has been anything but Timerous;
    he should be called 'Impetuous-Man'

    Time to let him free to spend more time with his family.

    Maybe Think is spending his time as night watchman for Shocklender´s car; he did register it in Chubut, you know.
