    A government spokesman blamed Britain , US hedge funds and the provincial governor of Santa Fe for the meteorite.

    Stevie and other trolls:

    Obviously the USA and the puppet anglos found a way to steer the meteorite directly into SA and Argentina in particular. Venezuela will start expelling more American diplomats as they expect meteorites controlled by the USA to start raining on Caracas and further disrupting Veneuzla's democratic principles. With that, the BUS is ordering martial law.

    “The Fire Brigade of the town of El Trebol in central Santa Fe province had been warned by NASA...”
    NASA? Not that nasty-CIA run outfit with its HQ in Washington, USA?
    The evil Empire helping-out Argentina? Who'd have think it?
    Obviously the conspiracy is deeper than we thought... Will KFC now issue warrants for all meteorites entering Argie airspace?

    I gotta say though, Dudes, chillax, it's no different than what happened in Russia not too long ago. No one died. No one got smooshed or bonked. And it wasn't those mean but kinda hot purple-wigged moonbase girls from S.H.A.D.O. (though that would have been kewl) or Neal Degrasse Tyson the planet killer being his badassed self (which would have been kewler).

    apparently it was first thought the British were coming,

    apparently CFK was ready to fly to the UN and make another complaint abt the British making to much noise in the south Atlantic

    still,
    whatever the truth, it will keep em all on their toes .lol,

    @15 Purple wigs and silver gogo boots, baby! So much better than when Gerry and Syliva took the supermarination route later with Space 1999! Actually, they have Anderson collection on Hulu now (If they only had Ambassador Magma/Space Giants, my young son's television education would be complete, so much better than that Power Ranger crap).

    Proof of concept. Little bit of planetary engineering goes a long way. And it's not like my new asteroid cannon has a shortage of ammunition.

    The next one will be 200km across and shaped like Mario Menendez

    @18

    Not to spoil your enthusiasm or anything, but a 200km wide asteroid would likely be the end of all human life.
