    Sorry but we Argentina have no respect for fakland holding or repsol they are both thieves and corrupt colonists who deserve nothing but a jail sentence. I wonder if repsol ever payed taxes or if fakland holdings ever payed for the theft of Argentina's resources. If not, Argentine's should go and expropiate foreigners held corporates and property. As the new world order allows them to theft from us Argentine's we Argentines in turn should take our share and expect no punishment.

    @1 explain why they are thieves?? you cannot steal what you already own, but you already know that.

    “take our share and expect no punishment”, you have no share it is not your to take, but your punishment will be learning this lesson the hard way.

    SELF-DETERMINATION, All day every day!

    Spain is wholly ill-equipped to deal with Argentina. They need a firm stick to beat them with, they understand nothing else.

    Piss hunter, when will you learn that you are not argentine, bless the little things in live.
    Your lack of knowledge and formal education is eveident in the words you type. As for the new world order, the nazi's have really been on your brain way too long. Get back in your igloo where you belong....under lots of snow in Canada. You are so unglued......learn how to be a good Canadain.

    In the miniscule mind of a kirchner, corporations are suppose to give their profits to argentina, not the shareholders.

    #2 wrong answer it was never property of anyone to sell if that is what you really mean and for that reason we Argentines will take our share lol. No need to explain a foreigner anything, what are you a comedian? about you tell us why thieves of Argentines wealth deserve an explanation? Coca Cola holdings, fakland holding and repsol can go back home on a ship or a create, it's their choice I can only promise them that they will be going back home, and that I will not rest until they do. Let's hope repsol returns the money they got for the shares of YPF since they did get payed or let's hope Argentine expropiate all Spanish firms scavenging in Argentina. Let start the expropiacion wars again spain and UK.

    Don't worry, the only country that's going to invest in Argentina is China, ask any number of African countries how well that story goes...

    @6 you know it is correct answer and your blind ignorance and desire to spread msinformation controls you ability to reason and accept the truth.
    Just as well The truth does not need or care for yours or argentinas acceptance.

    SELF-DETERMINATION, all the truth you need :)

    @7,9,11,12 The Opposed

    Here is FB for Alex Vargas:

    FB for “NuKular-Alex” Alex Vargas

    Pirat-Hunter appears to live in Toronto - all his references in his posts are from there.

    Alex Vargas went to Toronto's Vaughan Rd Academy HS.

    PH seems to have no knowledge of life in Argentina, first hand and does not seem to travel.
    No passport - criminal record? Can leave, but cannot re-enter Canada???

    Ken Ridge remembers Alex Vargas posting as himself on MercoPress before the name change to PH.

    AV says lives in Salta, but no photos of him there.
    Here is FB for Alex Vargas - you be the judge.

    Check out his photos and his LIKES (hates)

    PS - has removed his La Campora links!/avargas20

    @16 the greatest compliment any anti-brit troll can give, is to witness their importance they bestow for this great english language by studying and putting into practise this wonderful globally important gift ,
    and to them we say, your very welcome.
    How they use it however, relies very much in their lack of integrity.

    @18 Alex Vargas

    “#10 china is a good country to bad most racist attack anything that is different.”

    That's rich, coming from a ranting anti-Semite like yourself !!

    “ And stop showing us links to your lover we are not interested”

    You don't want me posting your FB page up on here Alex??
    But it shows all your Dictators that you admire!!

    “Be careful guys there is a british pedophile hacking males accounts. I hear he is a convicted child molester.”

    LOL, Mr. “I'm BI-sexual” Pi-rape-Hunter, you're the most likely one to be a homosexual, on here. All you talk about is gays - almost as bad as “sussie”

    Ask Think or NostrilDamus II or ProRG Amer. what you can do to help La Campora.

    They'll tell you you're embarrassing them !!!

    @18 What's the matter, alex? Is all the news about argieland the cesspit negative? Let's see now. You had an agreement with the Falklands over hydrocarbons sharing. Until you tore it up. You had an agreement with the Falklands over fishing. Until you tore it up. You got into loads and Loads and LOADS of debt. And you still owe most of it. Your idea of how to get a loan now is to wander around with your cap in your hand being told “No!” Remember how you complained to the IMO about Britain firing missiles? Nothing happened. And Britain still fires missiles. Remember tinpotman's UN seminar on British militarisation? And how everybody got up and walked out? And you seem to have mislaid a couple of your “boats”. Have you checked out the Libertad recently? I believe it's getting a suntan. Just thirteen days left before you get your marching orders from the IMF. Will you be in court to listen to the judgement that you can't have your boat back until you cough up at least US$20m? And the other court that will probably want US$250m? How are you getting on with the 50 or 60 WTO “disputes”? And now Repsol's filed a complaint about you at the ICSID. Isn't this the 49th case filed against argieland at the ICSID? Or is it the 50th? Did you know that the ICSID has only had 414 cases filed? That means argieland has had close to 12% of all the cases. Even Venezuela has only had 36. Are you trying for the record for the most corrupt, criminal country in the world? Would you like to know how many cases have been filed against the UK? None. Zero. Zilch. Got a passport, have you? Who did you buy that from? How much? Does it look like a “real” one?
