    No, corruption in Germany? Nahh, that's impossible. That doesn't happen in the EU. Must be fake news.

    Corruption exists everywhere humans live... even in the best ranked countries. There is no black and white in politics, only different scales in grey.
    Truth is, the causes for what the german president resigned, for example in your beloved Argentina would not be worth to mention. He would still be considered a saint over there. The Kirchners were playing on a much higher league (cheap land buys through connections and power , money from their friend chavez in a coffin, etc...)

    By the way, you are again fleeing from the LAN discussion... I should know better you're afraid and hate to face hard facts.

    “for example in your beloved Argentina would not be worth to mention.”

    My beloved Argentina? Well, to be honest, Argentina is far more excited than Chile. It's just a matter of having a “good” taste. Your hatred against your neighbors is so fake as you r comments here to prove that Chile as a developed nation (Laughable, it isn't and you know that.)

    The LAN and TAM MERGER discussion against an indian like you is finished, long time ago. Merger isn't a takover and Brazilians would never allow that, get over it. I showed you the links, you refuse to read, because it doesn't fit in your bubble, because you do realize that once you do your homework, know the facts, that bubble would burst and would bring you back to your low self esteem feeling. You're pathetic indian with a low self esteem, that's what you are. For the last time, it's a merger and it's good news for both airlines.

    ”The Kirchners were playing on a much higher league (cheap land buys through connections and power , money from their friend chavez in a coffin, etc...)“

    read this mapuche indian, what the heck do I care about the Kirchners. Take your rhetoric against argies, not against me since I'm not born in Argentina.

    ”Corruption exists everywhere humans live... even in the best ranked countries.”

    That I'm aware of that, even in my so called great developed Holland. You did not and do not understand my sarcasm in my first comment.

    Coming from neither country, Chile seems more “developed” than Argentina to me, certainly in terms of infrastructure, functioning airline (LAN's planes to NZ were really quite smart) and telecommunications. I don't know if it is more fun though. Argentina seems to win in the amusement stakes.

    Coming from neither countries either, Chile seems more developed, but isn't as they claim. It is a developing nation, just like Brazil and Argentina. All have a long way to go.
