    Argentina has been blacklisted, it is on its way to being declared a failed narco state and money launderer.
    I have said for a long time the USA wants to use Arg as an example of what happens when you are a scofflaw.

    @3, 4 Yeah, it looks as those the UK and the USA have finally decided that argieland has had enough rope. There is now enough for a noose and a long drop. Wheeeeeh. Snap!
    @5 Please don't refer to Twinky as a turnip. A turnip is a tasty, useful vegetable.

    There is no reason why the SCOTUS should take on the appeal by The Dark Country, never mind the uninvited briefs from anyone, including the IMF run by the Alpaca look-alike.

    September is not very far away so we will soon know if they accept the bleating by the argies for legal consideration.

    I bet they don't.

    Can anyone really blame the USA.....what country in their right mind would support anything that Argentina does? I do think that Argentina will find their way back to a civilized world and realize the errs of they ways. This all starts with the mid terms when the people reject Kirchnerites, followed by the 2015 presidential election. Ultimately we will reject peronists and soon we will drop out outrageous claim to the Falklands. Most of us Argentine's do not even care about the British Falklands.....all we truly care about is what everyone else does........family, jobs and peace. Man..........what I would give for a slad with a tomato and a fresh warm loaf of bread.

    Peace brothers

    Let us not forget that this is a matter of LAW, not POLITICS. The U.S. government has nothing to fear as it generally acts legally. Possibly “legally” by its own standards, but who would prefer Iranian “law” to U.S. law? The only people who have anything to fear are the corrupt, criminal, law-breakers like argieland. Argieland gave up its “sovereign immunity” to con people into buying its worthless bonds. Worthless because it never intended to pay up. It agreed to submit to New York law. Here''s a thought. How about every member of the argie “government” surrenders and spends the next 15 years in a New York jail? How would CFK look in orange and manacles? And without the pancake cosmetics? Anyway, it says it won't submit to judgement. The action of a hardened criminal. All those countries to which argieland owes money, either as a country or on behalf of its citizens, get prepared to invade. It won't be a problem. If there are two things that argie soldiers are good at, it's running and surrendering. Little “helpless, ineffective” UK made them run and surrender. But WE, the UK, insist on being the first in. WE want to destroy more than anyone else. WE want to put our Typhoons against their shit, OUR Challenger 2s against their shit, OUR submarines against their crap. 31 years ago, they didn't really pay. And now we can dig their war corpses up and give them back. Perhaps we could drop them out the back of C-130s. The Typhoon is a multirole combat aircraft. Let's see how much it can “kill”. All those lovely nuclear-propelled submarines with up to 30 Tomahawk cruise missiles. 210 missiles before reload. Lovely. WE can set up a rota. Fire. Withdraw for reload. Return to firing line. Fire.

    Bloodthirsty? These are the animals that killed 255 British servicemen and 3 Falkland Islanders for the “offence” of defending British Falkland Islands territory, homes and people. British troops said that, when they met the Islanders, they understood why they were there. Vengeance!

    I understand the IMF might be nervous about legal decisions that may hamper the ability of countries to refinance themselves. However, surely a greater threat to the entire system is if Argentina can simply refuse to pay its debt with the support of the IMF then why should any country anywhere repay debt?
