    Perhaps Maduro should just be Maduro and stop flaunting his inferiority complex.

    Well that's the oil sorted out, now all they have to do is get it there and refine it.

    Wonder how the repairs are coming along?

    That's a very familiar salute that the pair of them are doing in the top picture.

    Kirchner by name...

    Think - I am still looking for a reference for your economic methodology. Can you point me in the right direction?

    Well, first there was British Kirchnerist, now there's Venezuelan Kirchnerist =) I'm confident the Argentine workers will listen to the wise advice of this great socialist and trade unionist, not the siren calls of the scab Moyano, and stick with the lovely Cristina =)

    I'm sure Cristina will be delighted at this, until Maduro says, by the way you owe us billions of US dollars. We expect payment Sunday.

    The Venezuelan people need that money for themselves, not to squander away on CFK.

    Perhaps CFK believes that it will buy her time, but it's probably already too late. It's looking increasingly likely that she'll be out of office soon...

    Sounds to me like the man says whatever it takes. And given the disarray in which Argentina finds itself currently, I am not sure I would wish to be identified with its perpetrator and the “Widder Kirhner.”Looks like SHE's doing ok, though, no matter how many of her folks aree living on the streets of Buenos Aires.

    #10 I don't think he'll pull the plug on his lovely comrade Cristina. On the other hand, if you guys' dream comes true and the old oligarchy come back in Argentina, maybe THEN he'll pull the plug and the bastards will be screwed; another reason for not bringing back the neoliberals methinks!

    @16- BK

    So you are saying that Maduro should let his people starve so CFK can continue to feck up her own country, and stuff her own bank accounts?

    Maduro isn't Chavez. He's weak, and all it'll take is a quiet word in his ear from the military, or a big push by the opposition (which may still overturn the result of the election), and he'll fold like a pack of cards.

    Then it'll be “Argentina, we want our money NOW, with FULL interest.”

    By the way, CFK screwed Argentina when she accepted the absurd interest rates Chavez demanded for the loans.

    So not only will the PEOPLE of Argentina continue paying for the last default, they'll also have to pay for this default too.

    And everyday the debt is delayed, the larger that debt gets.

    @19 Anbar

    I believe he means both.

    “We have to thank God for having been part of that crusade of two giants of America, such where Nestor Kirchner and Hugo Chavez ...”

    I am unsure whether Maduro includes Canada and the USA in 'America', if so, these two real giants knock the dead NK & the dead HC into the bottom division. There are any number of North Americans that tower over these two dead aberrant South Americans.

    ... And, considering most of Venezuela's trade is with the USA, calling George Bush 'the devil himself' does nothing for his country's trade needs.

    It may be that the problem exemplified by this article is that it is illiterate in translation.
    That may be a Mercopress problem, but my guess is that it is a Maduro problem and the original words are illiterate.

    Elementary arithmetic teaches that 1 kichnerite president + 1 peronist president
    equals 1 president not “maduro.”

    Looks to me like Maduro was angling to shag TMBOA just like the little bird did.

    Wonder if he made it? Ugh, the mental picture.

    So Kirchner and Chavez were “giants”. I trust he remembers that Chavez ruined Venezuela's economy, whilst Kirchner did much the same for argieland. Of course, Kirchner was “special”. Instead of just destroying the infrastructure and thinking up unnecessary grandiose “projects”, he stole as well. The new “era” has begun. Runaway inflation, massive debts, poverty. All good for the “population”. So Maduro is a Peronist and a Kirchnerite as well! As Steveu says “Fcuked!” Mercosur is, of course, already a “magnet” for the continent. Let's take a look. Aren't there more non-members than members? Especially now that it has shown it is anti-democratic, the “magnet” appears to be at the bottom of a drain!
    “to the 200 years of history and the men who in these years have known how to confront events of history. Let us toast for our countries”. Good idea. Let's toast those men. Should we make a list of those “men” and women who have confronted the events of history and turned latin american “countries” into centres of excellence. For corruption, criminality, deparavity, genocide, incompetence, larceny, mendacity, stupidity, etc. Is Maduro starting to look like Stalin?

    So Think, let me get this right. You are suggesting that Joseph Stiglitz would suggest the right way to devalue the Argie Peso is for the Argie gvt and a few select producers (I assume you mean private ones as YPF is a basket case) to have a chat and come up with a number (I assume you mean a fixed rate otherwise there will be so many meetings that both your producers and gvt will get even crapper).

    I say you have just plucked that bollocks out of the same thin air your gvt uses to inform policy.

    Have you got the Marcos gene switched on today?
