Explosive materials were set off outside the door of the European Union’s branch in Argentina, located in an expensive neighbourhood. Early police reports said the explosion only caused superficial damage and that there were no injuries. Read full article

    I wonder if there are any on here “aiming instead to harass critics of the Kirchner administration and their allies in blogs, Facebook, Twitter and other social networks on the internet”

    If so they aren't very coherent.

    However I'm impressed they've now mastered bomb technology enough that the explosion actually escapes the bag it is detonated in. What nex? A broken window? Golly gosh we're in trouble.

    1 - I agree The Kircher Youth - its got RG government incompetence written all over it. Reason it didnt cause more damage was that it was left in maximos lunch box, all the food muffled the explosion.

    Sadly I'm a little surprised that this was outside the offices of the EU rather than outside the UK embassy or a UK linked business. I expect that there will be an increased level of security.

    Politicians stoking the fire of nationalism help nobody...they certainly don't give peace (much of) a chance.

    Indeed it is a surprise and you're right, the Lady in Black is firing up the passions. The blame lies with government and the unending falsehood of the ludicrous Argentine claims to the Falklands.

    How predictable. Complete nutters. How can a country and its politicians behave so badly all of the time? Its like watching kids in a childrens play ground throw toys around when they dont get their own way.

    The RG's have no fucking chance whatsoever of getting the Falklands. None. If they think that this sort of juvenile behaviour reflects well on them then they are very much mistaken.

    It makes them look like pathetic school kids.

    About time that Argentina was given a seat on the UN Security Council (;-)
    ....then she could call in UN Security forces to protect her citizens and foreign national on the streets of this fair city.

    There is little evidence that Argentina's security forces themselves have either the ability, the energy, or *the inclination* so to do.

    Violence is always to be regretted and rejected, but having said that, and remembering Hemingway's “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, and unintended tactic of such bombing by Argentine terrorists might be to push the EU to also take a stance to support EU members who have Overseas Territories or Outermost Regions (Denmark, France, Netherlands, Spain, UK).

    Of course, the Argentine terrorist-sympathsizers might say that knowing such a dynamic would emerge from such violence against the EU, the MI5 or Spain's Centro Nacional de Inteligencia might be responsible. Hmmm... ¿Quién sabe?

    Argentina is falling apart much quicker than I imagined. I said a few months ago as it gets cold and rainy it was going to get really ugly there and it is worse than I imagined.

    Once the peso devaluation happens all heck will break loose.

    Guzz, right wing anarchists would blow up a gov't building not an EU building. How does that make sense? Or is it RG logic that I don''t understand?

    As the right-wing is extremely reduced and in lack of followers, the only way to create a fuzz would be to seek internacional backup, thus selecting a target that would point to the left-wing. But they are so stupid, they chose an EU building :)

    @16 Guzz is clearly having a breakdown of some type. Better just leave him alone for a while to come-down

    You're not wrong. Right-wing activists would have targetted the government, not the UN. It could be a false-flag from the Spanish, but it's hardly their M.O. and it's not as though they don't have enough popular opinion against Argtardia at the moment anyways. Ockham's razor would suggest it is more likely to be La Campora starting up a period of militancy against foreign targets in order to support KFC's reign.

    Let's face it, they're going to be ice-cubes in a few months.

    @19 Why would they attack the UN? La Campora know that as the Militant wing of the Front for Tyranny they need to get Argentina onto the Security Council in order to ruin the diplomacy there too. They wouldn't attack a UN office and would instead turn to the EU, which is their target du jour, for stealing companies, trying to annex land, et cetera et cetera. The Front for Tyranny made it quite clear that the EU is their enemy of the day, so it fits with their motivations.

    They also didn't attack any Chinese targets, a communist country that is buying up large parts of Argentinian industry and land. Surely the right wing would see that as a target.

    Little of what you say makes any sense.

    I am baffled why RGs don't see it.
    It is too bad for CFK that there aren't reserves. Peron was at least able to use the huge gold reserves to keep himself if power but ooops there is nothing left to dole out.
    So in the end it will be like Venezuela or Zimbabwe. High inflation, high unemployment and empty shelves the Bolivarian dream.

    Well, you are wrong, not surprisingly after a very quick search. The only thing that happened was that provincial legislatures are opening their sessions, and both the governmor and local governing chambers meet and give speeches. Somewhere in there surely there was reference of either reducing infraestructure projects or taking debt to financing. Quite distant from your statement of “they are issuing IOUs”.

    64 - At least you agree and thank the UK i accept your gratitude. Think Hilter had a few plans for Africa the middle east, and Japan for the far east. That why and the clues in the name it was a 'World War'
    So yes a Nazi run whole or europe, Africa and Japanese control of far east including China , Australia, Burma , India. Only leaves SA which had many pro nazi regimes, to scared to join the fight.

    India was granted independance in 1947 and are now a emerging super power! dam the UK. Deep down that embarrassment of your countries lack of bravery and your humiliation eates away at you. get over it and look forward. Well look a bit further than pending economic meltdown and being a laughing stock on the world stage. Grow a pair

    “India was granted independance in 1947 and are now a emerging super power! dam the UK. Deep down that embarrassment of your countries lack of bravery ....” cLOHO (#80)

    Okay, lack of bravery ....

    Was it more brave to enable decolonialisation of India?
    More brave to enable Pakistan to partition?
    More brave to allow India to develop/purchase the hydrogen bomb/missiles?

    Or would it have been braver to retain the colony, keep the subcontinent undivided, and ban its bomb?

    Re. “dam the UK” .... with the present floods this would be a good idea.

    81 - An independant nation like India is free to develop how they want.

    The bravery dig was aimed at Argentina as you are well aware, and iam sure your struggling to provide details of such a subject.

    India's independance was agreed during the second world war, it insured a 100 percent effort in defeating the Japanese invasion force (Brave Indian and Brave Commonwealth troops fighting)

    After the war as iam sure you know Britian was bankrupted and slowly one by one gave up and granted independance to its former colonies. Partition along racial grounds was nesseary and a terrible time was had by both emerging nations. Both are now emerging and gaining in stature , unfortunately Argentina is fading into economic and moral collapse.

    So back to the original point , lack of bravery and humiliated country with a huge chip on shoulder, answer Argentina. Bullying a small island of 3000 souls. Shame on you for supporting such a despotic regime

    One more question what has Argentina ever done for another nation to help them??? They are self obssessed caring only for themselves.

    “One more question what has Argentina ever done for another nation to help them??? They are self obssessed caring only for themselves.”

    You do realize you are a very dumb, low intelligence, degraded IQ individual right?

    Either that, or illiterate and having never read a history book.

    Your choice really.

    clue- There is a monument in Mendoza (sorry, could not resist), evoking what Argentina did to help other countries... Ignorant, pathetic fool. What a waste of a human being, tossing sacrificed human lives as being worth nothing.

    1-“One more question what has Argentina ever done for another nation to help them???”

    Surely you are not European or may be you suffer of lack of memory.

    1-Argentina stand alone and opposed to the exclusion of Germany from the League of Nations after WWI (What that may be could avoided WWII) and ended up suffering own isolation from US and UK.
    2-Argentina sent food to EU while EU was starving during WWI & WWII.
    3- Helped Spanish when starving during Franco Era and accepted Spanish nationals refugees.
    4-Helped Italy with food and Humanitarian aid by accepting war refugees.
    5- Allowed Brit companies to sell food to Germans to finances their war.
    6-Recieved Germans escaping from the wars.
    7- Bailed out Britain in 1bn pound when she couldn’t paid.
    8- Received a huge emigration of EU nationals refugees during and after WWI & WWWII.
    9- Is currently providing humanitarian aid in Haiti and Africa.

    Now you tell me what your nation had ever done for Argentina?

    2-“They are self obssessed caring only for themselves”

    May be that is a result of what happened during 2001 when some fellow countries sent used medical material (like used syringes and that kind of stuff) as humanitarian donations.

    Or because some fellow EU countries like Spain mistreat them without reason.

    A teacher was deported from Spain having a letter of invitation from Spanish Uni. and she lost her pregnancy after being caught 4 hours by Spanish officers and being forced to fly 36 hours non stop.

    Did I helped to answer your question?

    #29 Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts, I've been quite busy today and just seen this thread, I must say the conspiracy theorising, especially from you, about La Campora has reached new lows with this one. Next you'll be saying the real reason Maximo is chubby is that he's really a giant lizard, don't you know?!

    Please like this page in order to force Argentina to return Misiones and Formosa Provinces to Paraguay, the country they were stolen from in 1870!

    Misiones and Formosa Provinces are provinces of Argentina that were seized and annaxed by Argentina from Paraguay this page is dedicated to address Argentine hyporcacy and ensuring their return to Paraguay.

    It's only right that Argentina first addresses its own hyocracy by re-examining its own history before talking about taking more land it has never had soverignty over. Not just the Falklands but South Georgia and the South Sandwhich Islands.
