    Eventually countries will retaliate and Argentina will pay a heavy price. Short-term thinking again.

    Moreno's reference to women's panties in a high level business meeting is just beyond belief, even from an Argie.

    With wannabee gangsters like him in the Government trying to blackmail international businesses it can't be long now before the inevitable metldown of the economy.

    Again, O gaga, you call me an asshole in Espanol. Why? All I said was the truth about your despotic Governmental Minister who everyone, including CFK, thinks is a gangster.

    Well, I know a few British gangsters and this pratt is a pusseycat compared to them.
