    A military coup is the only thing that can save Argentina. The botox queen and the fat boy Maximo have athe county in a Peronist downward spiral. CFK is attempting to clean house. Its time for a coup. That is how Peron seized power.

    @# 6 right on the money! Sometimes it is what is needed. CFK must be afraid of the Military to disperse so many....classic dictaror....and likely will end up like one!
    @#4 I don't think you are old enough to know....

    Well, you couldn't make this up - unless you are an Argie: “Paz is a Malvinas war veteran although he never set foot in the Islands since he was head of communications for the Navy’s air wing from the continent” Ha, Ha, Ha, sorry for that Argentino moment.

    The prat's NEVER SET FOOT ON THE ISLANDS - AND HE'S A MALVINAS VET!!! HA, HA, HA.

    I bet the only thing this 'expert in communications' did from the mainland was to tell the rest of the slimy bastards who “invaded” in their Mirage 3s et al to get back home before they got their backsides shot off' !!! :o))))))))

    AND, I bet he gets the new medal for LOOSING THE WAR!!! HA, HA, HA.

    CFK knows how to screw the military up who DARED to investigate the well known corkscrew: her beloved Nestor - that will teach them.

    Now I know where Warner Bros. got the idea for 'Looney Toons - Argentina.

    #15... I am a highly decorated Vietnam Veteran. I never once set foot in Vietnam, but plenty of damage in Cambodia and Laos.
    About Argentina. Cristina knows she is sitting on a powder keg and her Tampon is the fuse. Circular history

    I have no problem with you being a highly decorated Vietnam Veteran because Cambodia and Laos were considered by many to be the same theatre of war AND you were there.

    This man never was in the Falklands (there are no Malvinas), he sat in a 'communications centre' which, given the propensity for the Argentinos to 'embelish' the truth, was probalby an old 40ft container.

    @16

    Army?

    @18

    The idea is to place “useless” people in charge, to control the Armed Forces better, well, whatever is left over. I was in the border with Chile in 82, that makes me a Malvinas vet also? I don't think so

    You must be very young not to understand my comment on the Vietnam Conflict.

    The conflict transcended borders because the communists realised the USA were hamstrung by their terms of engagement. This soon changed and American troops fought in Cambodia and Laos as if it were Vietnam.

    When you were on the Chilean border I presume you were there to 'prevent' Chile overunning Argentina while they were pratting abound in the Falklands (there are no Malvinas). If this is the case then, no, you were not a Malvinas vet.

    What you were of course was very lucky that Chile did not over-run Argentina!

    you can only be, if you left your home land to be one,
    if you stayed at home , you cannot be, Cruzansailor left his homeland and went over seas, so he can be== Artillero stayed at home, so he cannot be, is this easier .

    You must be very young not to understand my comment on the Vietnam Conflict... I do understand it since I studied it in detail.

    My comment was directed to Admiral Paz assignment to be the head of the Navy (the Malvinas veteran that did step on the islands? )

    “What you were of course was very lucky that Chile did not over-run Argentina!”.... Impossible !! I was there to prevent it :-)))
