# 1 - Venezuela never really had an industry to begin with, and that goes back way before Chavez when Venezuela was just a US puppet.Apr 23rd, 2013 - 02:59 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
# 2 - 600,000 dead voter? Funny how up to know only the Miami-based Venezuelan opposition and the US haven't aknowledged the legitimacy of the election. You are on your own.
# 3 - As the joke goes, ehe US just lucky there is no US embassy in the US, LOL.
# 4 - You haven't seen evidence and wont see it because it doesn't exists, it's just another baseless accusation by Capriles and his US handlers.
And why should you even take a lady with a big (ugly) nose serious who is part of an administration (obozo administration) that was involved in electoral fraud. Meanwhile Capriles keeps crying and he knows he's done..game over.Apr 23rd, 2013 - 03:24 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
@6 You really should think before you go making statements about a lady's attractiveness. Although I doubt whether Ms Jacobsen makes any claims in that area. However, CFK is on record as admitting that she slaps cosmetics on with a shovel. No doubt in an attempt to hide the potholes on her face. And Dilma is hardly a pin-up. Fat, or as it's now known clinically obese, and with doubts about what sex she is. Is she really a transsexual? You seem to have an obsession with crying. Is that because you can't stop yourself? Trying to figure out why you were excreted as a latino instead of as a proper human being?Apr 23rd, 2013 - 04:15 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

What Argentina is doing to the brits,
Perfectly ok for the US to have difficulties with a South American country. As a Brit we should respect their defacto positions, encourage them to engage in dialogue and we should not take any position on it.Apr 23rd, 2013 - 06:43 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

HA HA HA what a load of crap they cannot do that or they will go bankrupt if not for the US.
They Import almost 100% of their gasoline consumption from the US, they export most of their oil to the US the only country that have the distilled capacity for that tar that they call oil.
This people are amazing if we’re not for the US they will have no economy and they are in no position to dictate anything, “Venezuela you are loaded with empty threats”

Of course you would. That is why you don't life in SA, don't oil and don't manage anything. But judging from you statements, perhaps you are consulting on managing Argentina's economy from the comforts of Europe.Apr 24th, 2013 - 01:58 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
BTW, increasing oil prices on market control resources? If you could, ultimately just increases the cost to buy it back as gasoline.
So many comments here about the physical appearnce of leaders. By that arguments the Playboy Mansion should run the UN (they might actually do a better job). What happens in Venezuela is Venezuela's problem, the US should step away and take care of their own problems, which are seriously increasing.

Technically you are correct,
Depending on how you interpret the question.
what happens in Islas Malvinas is Argentina's problem
[in this context you are correct]
What happens in the Falklands is a Falkland/British problem,
As there is no islas Malvinas =on in the context of argentine mythology.
Hepatia.....if you really think the Falklands are your, you must feel like a coward of a country that you cannot do a damn thing about it. When you did, we Rangers use to say.....made your shit flaky and ruined your afternoon.Apr 25th, 2013 - 12:51 am - Link - Report abuse 0
Ok, you you are incapable of defending yourself and depend on others for defense, rationalize why you do not go to the ICJ if Argentina believes it is theirs?
BTW, every map in the world calsls them FALKLAND ISLANDS.

This is exactly why Argentina correctly refuses to allow them to be included in any sovereignty negotiations. The administration of the UK understands this very well.

And what is it to do with Argentina,
The way you are putting it, or trying to brain wash any roving argies looking for pointers, is that,
Argentina is in the Falklands,
Its yours and you wont allow the UK into the talks,
Now if I was a dreamiest or an alien from mars, you might have a convincing argument,
But as we live in the real world and know full well, you and Argentina and CFK have no claim whatsoever over the Falklands,
We know then that once again you speak with a nasty fork tongue.

Why Argentineans is not allowed a referendum to become independent states,
Why has Argentina got sovereignty over Argentina and why,
What give Argentina the right to hold sovereignty over Argentineans?
Why has not Argentina included Great Britain talks on Argentinean sovereignty,
Why has Argentina not included the Falklands in talks on Argentinean sovereignty,
Sound confusing and stupid does it not,
Now perhaps you know how we feel abt you lot.
The people of the Falklands are no ones problem. You cannot discuss the islands without the people that live there. You consider them a stolen island, yet you refuse to take legal action.Apr 26th, 2013 - 08:33 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

The sovereignty that the UK claims over the Malvinas resides in London, and nowhere else.
Myself, the UK, the Falklanders and all the powers to be that control this situation seem to think differently from you and the delusions of Argentina and apparently based on the status of who controls the islands....the Islanders, that is all that matters. Perhaps you all would do better playing amor fraternal and get Bolivia their treasures seaport in Chile. That is more likely to happen before the Falklands become Argentine.Apr 27th, 2013 - 03:17 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

they have no valid claim,
and that is the only real reason they will not take it to the ICJ,
but they will try to steal them..
