    @3 I have a feeling that you may be right. The overwhelming stench of corruption and danger is dissipating slightly. More people are turning against her by the day.

    @1. And of course to add to that he bloody well knows that his critics in AR also lost families in the Shoah. Did Timerman pay good money to go to a training workshop to learn how to keep his foot lodged in his mouth 24/7?

    “After three hours of exposition, Timerman said that he is aware that “he will pay a very steep price for this, and he accepts it, but he believes it’s what’s best for the victims”

    Perhaps a little more thought especially before you open your mouth and not just on this issue

    The shenanigans going on in the Congress to get a quorum would be illegal in a civilized/legitimate country.
    It is shameful.

    They are really doing everything in their power to totally destroy rgentina to the point of absolute destruction. By the time to people smell the dying roses, it will be too late. These October mid terms, if they do not show a major change anda deal a blow to kirchner, they will be Cuba on steroids.

    How come Tinpotman “yelled”? Doesn't he have any concept of “dignity”? Oh, of course, I forgot his “performance” in London. All the antics of a petulant child. But then, isn't that what he is? Supposedly, he bought a masters degree in international relations in 1981. A “biopic” of Tinpotman on Wikipedia paints him as a mindless, robotic, CFK “yes man”. And who would argue with that? He mindlessly plods out to mouth the CFK “line”. It's incredibly tempting to call him a “tosser”. But aren't passable “tossers” capable of moving their hands up AND down? More than once? Until something “spurts”. Isn't Tinpotman the classic “erectile dysfunction”? Although his head does look a lot like a “bell-end”. Can argie “bloggers” and “malvinistas” be detected because they resemble, one way or another, “bell-ends”? Desperate attempts to be “effective” but limited to expulsion of smelly, waste air. Time to be sensible. Hammer plugs into any possible “exit” holds. Or just destroy anything worthless!
    @11 And you have so many friends! The “latam” states of S.America. Those states on the lists of those defined as “failed”, “rogue”, “terrorist”. After all, shit attracts shit. The good thing is that we all know what and who has to be turned into bloody dust. Argieland, Iran, North Korea, Somalia. Question marks for Afghanistan, Albania, Dem. Rep. Congo, cuba, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Zimbabwe.

    @12 When the US says that Israel will screw you up bad if you do something stupid, one well... takes it as a friend backing up another friend. When PressTV (George Galloway's favorite Iranian mouthpiece) says that Israel will screw you up bad if you do something stupid, one well ... should think they're on to something!

    I think it is obvious......Argentina needs to import oil and has no U$ money, despite what they say. Argentina is willing to risk everything and be a packmule whore to Iran for that oil. It's a lose lose situation for both countries. Kirchner runs around believing that that will be no consequences to her actions, because, afterall, what has happened so far.....very little, but that is certain to change.

    Andy65 I could not agree with you more. It is one thing to play trade games, it is entirely a different beast to feed a potential nuclear menance like Iran. She is going to bed with Iran and will walk away with a case of thy political syphillis in which there is no care. The level of damage Argentina is about to do to there own country men and women have never been seen. Poor bastards......they need to overthrow her.
