    Once again the ridiculous Argentine government blames others for both their own failure to regulate and their inability to to drag their pitiful little country out of the technological dark ages. No wonder Argentina is a global laughing stock and the butt of jokes everywhere you go.

    So another un-profitable business that needs U$ MILLIONS in upgrades and new equipment that the gov't is forced to take over. I wonder if they will try to force it on BA city too.
    Arg can't afford to do this...

    The most important thing about this article is that the right thing has been done (unless you think the company responsible for the crash should keep their concession?) not the spurious gripes of the opposition. Well done my Queen

    3. It is obvious you have never been to Argentina. You look like such a fool spouting that nonsense. What a complete moron and waste of time you are.

    I did not notice anything about firing or arresting any government official who was supposed to inspect or audit the company, but probably accepted an under the table bribe to let the company keep operating.
