    If things go right for the CIA and MI6 we might be lookiing at the next Argentine president, I wish Christina gets well soon and I am wrong about the CIA and MI6, Fidel Castro's world isn't all that fake anymore, if Libya can be used as a window into the mentality of the terrorists we can already see how the terrorist cells george bush promised us operate. this events remind me of the song “civil war” by gund and roses where the sing to this lyrics states “We practice selective annihilation of mayors and
    Government officials for example to create a vacuum
    Then we fill that vacuum as popular war advantage
    Peace is closer” I think there are 2 members of the Argentine government who got killed this month alone, not including Christina.

    “Political decisions will be made by Carlos Zannini, the Presidency Legal and Technical secretary, and Máximo Kirchner, the President’s son”

    Wow thats truely democracy at work their, too unelected people making the decisions while the president is recovering from surgery, instead of the democratically elected vice president. What makes it worse is the unelected Maximo son of the president is one of those making the decisions, a true sign of CFK imposing her authoritarian regime. Good lck with your new ruling dictatorship argentina, we won't feel sorry for you, so don't come crying to us for help. After all you voted her back in.

    Maybe Boudou will have time to get a decent haircut; he has nothing else to do but unravel the paper clips.

    @3 Did we think she was anything but a dictator in designer clothing? She is building a state capitalist society - under orders from Chavez - and the Argentines are completely submissive.

    Perhaps Bodou can steal a boatload while the botox Queen is in the hospital. He has to be aware that fat guy Maximo is watching his every move. Lets hope the military can pull a coup and rid Argentina of the parasitic Peronists.
