    We may laugh at her plasticity,
    But her beauty seems to have much influence over some weaker men,

    Amazing to what extent, some men will go, for their fantasy .

    #1 Don't know what this has to do with the article, but I'm glad you at last acknowledge the beauty and desirability of my radiant Queen =)

    Back on topic, what right wing bastards the Columbian government are?! Of course Uribe was the worst and Santos has been a marked improvement esp in foreign affairs, but this latest act, given its timing, is really one of a vulture. Fortunately as they join the US/European backlash against the nationalisation , they don't seem to have noticed that there is no such backlash in their own region

    @3 “the beauty and desirability of my radiant Queen”. Like a very old electric fire on a freezing day. You wouldn't normally plug it in but sometimes there's little choice. Just remember to throw it away come the summer because it doesn't comply with electrical safety standards.

    On topic, the list of anti-argies seems to be getting longer. Or is it just the list of anti-Kirchnerists?

    The Argentinian Government should write a book, 'How to lose friends and allies in 30 days or less'. :o)

    All this is very UNFAIR. Argentina has increased its imports %30 during 2011 and goes on increasing them despite there are restrictions being stablished.

    And Argentina is receiving a lot of colombian immigrants. Buenos Aires Starbucks and McDonald's are full of colombian workers.

    Universities also have a lot of colombian students, they come here and study FOR FREE at public universities that ALL OF US ARGENTINES PAY WITH OUR TAXES (I am not against it, I like it and I am proud of helping Latinamerican people accessing to university). In Colombia or Chile most young people is not able to access Universities, it is extremely expensive in Colombia.

    This is UNFAIR.

    @9 Argentinian university is oxymoron. It's not like Argentinians do any studying or have any educational establishments of repute. So it's not really fair to charge colombians for something no one would pay for, that's just bad economics. Better just to let them listen to your ridiculous propaganda lessons for free, eh.
