    The only 'stupids' here is you. But then you don't have to live in Argentina do you?

    80% of the media in Argentina is a propaganda tool for CFK. The other 20% is currently fighting to remain free of government control.

    The government is trying to take over the judicial system by 'democratising' it. In other words by removing its independence and making it controlled by the government.

    Dictators always mis-use words like democratic when they mean the opposite such as the Democratic People's (for people read Kim Jung-Un and his sicophants) of Korea.

    Soon it'll be the Democratic People's (for people read CFK and her sicophants) Republic of Argentina. Then the one way flights over the Atlantic will reappear and her dissenters will magically disappear never to bother her again.

    It's up o the actual people of Argentina to stop this wannabe dictator. Power to the people, and Viva the Revolution!

    I am waiting to start seeing praise on how this statement further shows the UN support for the Argentinian claim in the “Malvinas.”
