    Never mind, argieland. Just when you thought you were on the verge of making some honest money. How long does this stuff last before it starts either sprouting or rotting? And there's still all those debts to pay with money you don't have. Anybody think God doesn't love you? After all, you are one of the most “bent” states on the planet! And not just because of your compulsory “gayness”.

    So as well as banning Falkland Island flagged vessels from entering Argentine ports, ships on 'their side' can't enter either. Any strikes at FIPASS halting the FI economy. Just who in their right mind would chose to be a colony of Argentina?

    This is why Arg always gets a lower price for their commodities than what civilized countries receive.

    I see to remember them doing something like this about 12 / 18 months ago.

    Was it the pilots then, BWTF cares?

    Saves the Royal Navy from planning a blockade if the Argentines get more nasty. DIY sanctions.

    This Rivero Law is more useful than it seemed -but did not even imagine Argentina would use it against themselves-are any of these supply ships registered in Argentina?
