    Been reading some interesting stuff on the US state department website about Venezuela being an 'interlocutor' for Argentina in passing nuclear technology to Iran. The Argies are doing themselves no favours at all with this alliance with Venezuela, they have rubbished their so called 'Malvinas'cause for good, put an end to Mercosur and now Fernandez is set to be as big a concern to Washington as Chavez is. No doubts whatsoever they are going to have a stab at taking Falklands together, that's what all of this is about. I hope Cameron is ready and prepared, personally I would be sending another T45 down there at least.

    A Venezuelan ship will sink as fast as an Argentine one.

    This is just Chavez sounding off on the world stage as usual.

    I bet other Mercosur members are already rolling their eyes and worrying about that idiot.

    It's likely that lunatic actually believes what he says. He's quite capable of launching an attack on the Falkland Islands. Somebody should explain to him that if he does; his little invasion fleet would find that any that survived would find nothing much left in Venezuela to go home to. Their ports, airports and military facilities and equipment would be history. The US and Columbia would be delighted to see Britain 'demilitarise' Venezuela, and we can.

    Chavez supported Saddam Hussein, and recently sent a message of love and support to his good friend Gaddafi. How did that work out Hugo?

    To be fair, half of the actual warship (i.e. frigate and above and submarines) fleet would be considerably harder to sink. Anyone who wanted to would have to get them out of mothballs or five-year-long-overhauls first.

    Chavez: Venezuela is no threat, Obama is a “good guy”

    In an interview with a local Venezuelan television station on Friday, Chavez dismissed the allegations he posed any danger.
    “The Venezuela of today is no threat to anyone,” he said.
    “It has all been a hoax by the imperialists and global far right: that uranium is being enriched in Venezuela, that we're setting up missiles here, that we're supporting terrorism.”

    The 'military bloc' that Chavez is now calling Mercosur, is a sub-set of the military bloc that, last year, Chavez was calling Unasur.

    What is the tactical value of having a military bloc within a military bloc?

    Presumably the Mercosur military bloc can go to war without reference to Unasur.

    CFK/Chavez might decide to 'tidy-up' frontier anomalies -

    reverting PA and UR to Argentina & Brasil, thereby reducing the number of SA countries by two, by 'unification'.

    They might also decide to use the combined might of the Mercosur AR/BR/VE ( with 'guest appearence' from the Cuban military) military machines to swamp and finish off the Falkland Islands once and for all. This would be not too difficult, as the UK would not use nuclear weapons. This could only be countered by third party support - USA, FR, NATO,etc.
    Russia and China would, as usual, stop the UN from intervening.

    Definitely the end of a brighter future for the big beasts of South America, and a worrying time for the 'minnows'.

    Two useful thoughts. Neither argieland nor venezuela has any combat vessel larger than a frigate. Doesn't matter what the argies call them, Rufus, they are frigates. In addition, the combat strength of the RAF is double that of the CFK and Chavez air “farces”. When the remainder of the RAF Typhoons are delivered, it will have three times the “mercosur” strength. And that's without converting other RAF aircraft to a combat role. But MercoPress should note that the relevant word is not “block”, implying a large immovable or irresistible object, but a “bloc”. Conceivably, something that's missing a bit. In the air, one thing they are both missing is airborne tankers. Combined, they only have 2. So, no danger to the RAF flying in massive reinforcements to the Falklands. Always worth remembering what the RAF and FAA did to the argie air force with only 30 aircraft. I want to see Chavez and CFK crying!
    @10 “mercosur” could not “finish off” the Falklands. Whether or not the UK would use nuclear weapons is open to question. But the RAF and RN could “finish off” argieland, brazil and venezuela with no problem. Nice change of pace. RAF flying from Ascension Island and the Falklands with tanker support. RN with Tomahawk Land Attack cruise missiles. Little naval opposition. Especially with our 80mph torpedos and helicopter-carried anti-ship missiles. All operated by combat-experienced veterans. Opposed by amateurs. WE need to operate properly “this time”. Leave nothing afloat or capable of flying.

    Chavez knows he hasn't got long. He'd have no qualms about taking a few of his countrymen with him. If illness doesn't get him soon; he'll likely end up like his mates with big mouths and penchants for wearing ridiculous military costumes, Saddam and Gaddafi:

    I'd be worried if I were a malvinista, Chavez has a history of backing losers.

    He also wants 'Gringo' out of French Guyana and the Dutch Antilles.

    Alexei #5, you are absolutely right.. both Venezuela and Argentinean armies are only good for repressing their own citizens and cooperate with narco-terrorists... next armed conflict (if it ever happen- i doubt there is money to carry out such adventure, along with international isolation), Uk should also destroy part of the Argentine land, in a way that the word Malvinas will be forgotten for the next centuries from Argentinean language...

    With Argentina now firmly placed behind Chavez in SoAm's playground, the US will not fence-sit if they make a move on The Falklands. The US would LOVE an opportunity to slap Chavez.

    I do wonder what the average Argentine thinks of CFKChavez throwing their army in with Hugo. In the past when I asked Argentines about Chavez and his appearances at Mercosur summits they general answer was that he is a clown with a big ego. The word 'clown' came up a lot.

    @14 Black kat “doubt there is money to carry out such adventure” Unfortunately, like many other uniformed nutters around the world, Chavez has got his hands on huge oil reserves. Not entirely coincidentally, exactly like his friends Saddam and Gadaffi before him, he's busily trying to buy all the military hardware he can get his chubby little hands on. This has been made difficult by United States and European arms embargoes, but the mischievous Russians and Chinese will sell to him. Russia and China are taking his money/oil, and are sitting on the sidelines, laughing and egging him on. It could all end very badly for Chavez, and sadly for Venezuela too. Unfortunately for us wiping out his military, trashing his military infrastructure and oil production facilities, though entirely feasible, won't be cheap.

    If you look at Chavez's history, he was born in a hut with a mud floor and raised in utter poverty. He's barely literate, very poorly educated, and consequently completely paranoid about having all the nice things that he's 'acquired' being taken from him. A dangerous lunatic with a massive inferiority complex.... but he's the Botox Queen's bestest friend in the whole wide world, not surprisingly.

    @19 argieland is very good at “death squads”. Still, with a lack of oil products, what will it do with the bodies? Watch for the “disappearances”. It won't be long. On Chavez' form, “disappearances” will soon extend to venezuela. Little “uruguay” will disappear. This is already planned. There is no telling how many “uruguayans” will die. Will “uruguay” continue to exist? Not as a free, independent state. Perhaps as an argie province. The world may need to intervene to save “ordinary” people. But the Kirchneristas and Chaveznistas will have to go. Their choice. For preference, by bullet.

    BTW, Mercosur was thought as a trade union between 4 of the SA countries, which never worked because the difference between them.....and right now, with the suspension of Paraguay and the future inset of Venezuela the block had set its deadline. At the other side, the Pacific Allience is growing up keeping its main principle: the economic development of its citiziens....with no military policies included...
    Chavez & Fernandez are using the Mercosur for selfish political needs, one is trying to obatin a 4 th or 5th term at the office and the other to hide the fall of her Gvt. economic strategy.....too speedy...!! Unfortunately, they are involving the remaining SA countries in the issue....

    More bombastic statements by Chavez in the midst of a political campaign.

    What new agreements? Argentine military academies have been training Latin American cadets for years. There is nothing new here. I have no idea what was the purpose of the Argentine Defense Minister to Venezuela, but only speculation on my part. Maybe it was as a personal envoy to convey the message to cool it with Syria and Iran. Maybe to acquire the aging 21 F-16 that Venezuela has, something that the US would be interested in since Chavez is threatening to send them to Iran. Argentina has to retire the fleet of Mirage F-III in two years’ time regardless if they have a replacement or not.

    All the posters talking about a potential Argentine military intervention in the Falklands (Malvinas,) get real! With what? With the Argentine “dis-armed” forces? Even if Argentina had a modern one, it is unconstitutional. The Argentine Constitution (1994) establishes very clearly that the claim should be pursued peacefully through international organizations respecting the Kelpers way of life. If Argentina decided to use force, anyone can go to any court, which would have no choice but to rule the act unconstitutional unleashing a constitutional crisis in a middle of a war. That scenario is just crazy. Argentina will have to amend its Constitution first. This is a process of at least two years which includes a national referendum.

    Thats all great in the modern civilised world, but your forgetting that Turkey neck makes it up as she goes along, you know like all those peaceful Argentine farmers and villagers the British were meant to have sent packing when we colonised the Falklands, which she spluttered out with her rubber lips to the UN last month. She is a dictator in the making and she wont let the law or the constitution get in the way of her key ambition, which is to take the Falklands back for Argentina. We need to be fully prepared for her and Chavez to increase their aggressive agenda. Before the end of her political career, either she will have destroyed Argentina or we will, because she will definitely try something which will spark a war - she is reckless.

    What defense pact? What dictatorship? Cristina cannot be re-reelected without amending the constitution something that is very unlikely. In a years time, there will be mid-term elections in Argentina. The probabilities are the present government will lose its majority in congress or hold a very slim margin, at best. It takes a two thirds of Congress to approve a constitutional assembly to amend the constitution. After that process, there has to be a national referendum to approve the amendments. That takes a minimum of two years. Great Britain will have basically a two years warning if a constitutional assembly is voted in Congress. Until then, what danger!

    30: it's not a case of whether it's an answer or not, it's a fact, that was the reason the UN removed it from the decolonization list. As far as the UN are concerned, if another country has final say on it's politics then that land is a colony of that country. I'm not saying it's either right for them to think that or that I agree with it, I'm just saying that's the guidelines they follow and that's why Guiana was removed from the list and the Falklands won't be, as long as they have a governor and no representation in the UK government.

    Chavez is a clown, imho. However, Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world. Argentina has the land and water supply, it is an agricultural powerhouse. In addition, they keep drilling for oil in Patagonia and keep striking underground rivers. Argentina can double its arable land. Brazil has 200 million people. If Bolivia, with the second largest natural gas reserves in South America, becomes a full member of Mercosur! Wow! Do not forget that Argentina has the third largest shale natural gas and lithium reserves in the world. With food stuff, water supply, and fuel in abundance, the economic future is ours.

    Col. ret. G. Fregapani was until 2008 the Director of Combined Intelligence of ABIN, PL, FA , in Brazil's Amazonia region. Sincethen he comments in DEFESANET and ARCO DE FRONTEIRAS - about the Brazil's national security. He writes that Venezuela is Brazil's first line of defense against the U.S. and Britain which he considers the only current potential enemies of Brazil. “Venezuela pepares for war, distributes arms to the population, buys the exellent Skhoi fighter jets and now manufcatures missiles with Iranian technology, but not to attack our country”. He explains that it is for Venezuela's defense against the U.S. and Britain. ( Fregapani and Brazil's security and military community consider that the U.S. and Britain have a long term strategy to create “indigenous autonomies” under the “protection of the international community” - in the border area Brazil-Venzuela-Guyana, where also niobium reserves are located). Fregapani: “The ailment of Chavez should concern us, if Chavez dies or gets removed, we may lose our first line of defense and we then have to face all alone militarily superior forces.” He has also termed the inclusion of Venezuela into MERCOSUR as a “master move”. (You can also verify this in the archive of DEFESANET (“Comentarios Col. Fregapani”) or in the blog ARCO DE FRONTEIRAS)

    Hektor: Interesting points, most of them good ones and a nice antidote to the usual rubbish around here. But why, if you acknowledge the amazing economic success of Cristina, are you so against her re-election, or even her being allowed to stand again and let the people decide. If the process of constitutional change takes as long as you say, which I didn't realise, my advice to Cristina would be she better hurry up and start pushing it! I hope your wrong on the outcome of the midterms though, by then the difficult time of adjustment thats happening now should be over and I hope a Cristinista majority will be elected. Perhaps on a promise of constitutional reform to let Argentina keep its beautiful and talented Queen...

    Elaine: You're so full of hate its unreal. Don't you remember Nestor saying that Cristina would make an even more accomplished President than him. I agree with him, while your “analysis” sounds more like a personal grudge, what is it are you jealous of her beauty?!

    @32 What a silly comment. Shall we start with section 17 of the constitution? The relevant part says “Expropriation for reasons of public interest must be authorized by law and previously compensated.” Tell that to Repsol! How about “Foreigners enjoy within the territory of the Nation all the civil rights of citizens; they may exercise their industry, trade and profession; own real property, buy and sell it; navigate the rivers and coasts; practice freely their religion; make wills and marry under the laws.” And yet foreign companies are discriminated against. “The Executive Power shall in no event issue provisions of legislative nature, in which case they shall be absolutely and irreparably null and void.” So explain the decree requiring vessels to obtain a permit in order to travel to or from the Falkland Islands and from or to an argie port. You see, your “law” is full of holes and CFK pays no attention to it anyway! Regarding going to court? Prima facie, the highest authority on the planet is the UN Security Council. Its resolutions are binding on all members. Argieland is a member. Argieland ignored UNSCR 502. Who would trust argieland to abide by the rule of law?
    @35 As Britworker has pointed out, and I have said above, CFK pays no attention to your constitution or laws if they are “inconvenient”.
    @40 Wow!! All those goodies and argieland is still broke and still has 30% inflation.
    @43 They are best known as scapegoats. What about the 40 million argie war criminals that have yet to be even named?
    @47 Figures from Indec, we presume. Therefore lies. Throw in the 30% inflation. No, pal, your on the skids. How come you're desperately trying to find dollars?
    You need to take those rose-tinted government spectacles off. Just look at the dumbass @60. He's myopic, senile and suffers from dementia. He's also got a brown face. Comes of trying to get his nose and his tongue up CFK's ass at the same time! Don't be like him, he's a sad little cretin.

    Yes, I admit it. I hate what CFKC is doing to Argentina. Unlike BK I know the country well, have friends there and a great affection for the country. It is sickening to watch a mad old bint setting the country back another decade in recovery purely to feed her messiah complex and utter greed.

    Unfortunately many Argentines are inculcated with false histories and false enemies from an early age and this makes them proud owners of victim complexes and large but paper-thin egos. I would like to see Argentina thrive and grow to an extent that justifies such large egos. I really would.

    If CFKC were even slightly capable of doing the job it wouldn't much matter what she looked like. But, as BK brings it up all the time, she is as ugly on the outside as she is on the inside.

    Because it demonstrates an inferiority complex the “Queen” as you call her is nothing more then a single minded politician with her own ends and desires to fill. She is not perfectly comfortable with her own personality so she hides behind her declining looks. Mr British Kirchnerist she is a politician not a stateswomen she is not the god you make her out to be she is a human being and as a result she suffers from the same condition we all have: Self preservation, she will ensure that her interests will always come first.

    And no doubt you will reply with some sort of pathetic lob sided comment like ”not Christina, not my queen she is passionate and wonderful.......etc. Your comments of total support are pathetic and really quite irritating especially to those who live under her rule everyday, Simon for example, you however can idolise her as a God, because you don't know what its like to be in Argentine, and your comments will obviously upset and annoy those who feel that she is no good as they are experiencing it, not you. Stop commentating on her its rather dull and if you really are British then you should see that this women and her flunkies are harassing our fellow countrymen everyday, who comes first the leader of a bullying country or your own people? She is purposely trying to make their lives as uncomfortable as possible and continues beating the nationalist line to divert attention away from her own failings, you seem to forget that the Argie economy has inflation figures exceeding 30%, slowing growth, poverty etc, etc, etc, however everyones issues and attention is quickly diverted with a few words: Las Malvinas Son Argentines. See my point, I mean do you remember that certain train crash a while back? How may died? Were is the money she promised for transport infrastructure? Oh she was banging the nationalist drum- thats not queen like behaviour as you describe her, its opportunistic and you should realise it. Put your own country first, not her.
