    Shows how desperate O'Barmy is to have the allusion of being a World figure of merit.

    Well, forgive me if I am wrong, but I was lead to believe that the Kirchner political machine has nappy wearing “La Campora”, its youth group and then a geriatric ‘wing’ called the “Swindlers of Plaza de Mayo”. Am I not right in saying that government has been financing this group's ‘wet dreams project' and the swindlers have been financing their lavish lifestyles with public money? Not very much spent on housing for the poor, more spent on houses and schemes to launder the money through their proxy businesses. Mr. President, you are one silly fellow – the Argentines put the “C” in corruption, giving them loans is like inviting the proverbial wolf to supper for more 'Bonafini pie'.

    I know that we shouldn't equate this to feeding the habit of a drug addict, but . . . .

    And it may be that blandishments of cash 'without strings' (joke) from China have caused this policy-reversal.

    But even so, there must be quid pro quos;
    expect announcements on the re-payment of outstanding debts to the Texas corporations and the defaulted private bond-holders.
    That this repayment money has anything at all to do with the US-IADB $400million credit - or that it will be paid out of the US-IADB $400million credit - will be strongly denied by both countries.

    This baling-out signals absolutely and totally unambiguously that CFK had boxed herself into a corner from which she was incapable of escaping without help.

    I think, Pirat-, that the monitoring of your comments' 'trigger-words' will have alerted Homeland Security a long time ago.
    It might be wise to stay away from the USA.

    #8 you are right ! I don't usually buy, travel to or invest in USA, specialy US gold Markets or accounts in U$ dollars, never have never will. other then that as long as USA has militias in Latin America, and arms them, I will travel anywhere I damn well please, in any case we are not going to let a inplanted Europids dictate what a native american can or can't do, are we ?? I mean if UK can keep native Canadians out of UK, why couldn't America do the same to europids ?? I don't think it would be wise for homeland security to turn on people, as you will notice they end up taking arms somewhere else like Libya while Bin Laden still holds meetings with terrorist in Pakistan. if they had any intelligence they would have listened to me when I warned them about Bin Laden in Pakistan in 2001, but they knew this too well ISI had the bill for the safe house Bin Laden was murdered in, but going back to your fears, I expect the Terrorists in Libya armed with RGP and SAM's to keep USA and nato far too busy to worry about Pirat-hunters, what was USA saying about UK's hired pirats being busted in the Argentine ocean ??
    o yes they said.
    ”The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) announced on Wednesday the unanimous approval of a 400 million dollar credit to Argentina in order to improve the infrastructure of the country’s poor neighbourhoods.“
    and to support this UN said.
    ”UN expert calls on Argentina to improve living conditions of indigenous groups”

    I have tried to help you before with your desire to offend.
    Once more:
    Europid: derived from homonid (ie. humans) - weak offence
    Europoid: derived from anthropoid (includes all 'apes') - stronger offense.

    Try 'europoid', and you will offend me nicely.

    #10 you can take it as you wish, no insult was intended, the ape doesn't deserve to be compared with eurpids who are subhuman, with a uncanny resemblance to modern day humans, thus the word europid sudes the intended meaning, in other words a separate kind of human, special race if you will.

    ”The term Caucasian race (also Caucasoid, Europid, or Europoid[1]) has been used to denote the general physical type of some or all of the populations of Europe, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, Western Asia (Middle East), Central Asia and South Asia.[2] Historically, the term has been used to describe the entire population of these regions, without regard necessarily to skin tone.”

    Too literal, Pirat; lighten up and have some fun.
