    There should be a full IMF audit of Argentina first in order to establish exactly what they have and what can be paid in cash.

    How else can they be trusted otherwise?

    You can just imagine the auditor’s problems though!

    And where has this US$ 300 M gone from the pension pot? You have to mention that to TMBOA herself, sir!

    This will all end in tears for The Dark Country.

    “Under the scheme presented by minister Kicilloff last January in Paris Argentina would pay arrears with sovereign bonds, beginning 2016, but also wants those countries to invest similar sums in Argentina”...

    Sure, I can see that credit for more default...
    Good luck Kissimyassloff !!

    I can't see Germany and Japan buying into this blatant rip-off.

    They are still demanding CASH payment. Something the K-Gang are deeply uncomfortable with.

    Wonder why?

    Books Cooked. Me thinks. Probably nothing in the Bank.....

    @4 Actually, the start point for the Paris Club is that argieland must repay US$6 billion in cash. With argieland's record on bonds, that's no surprise. Apparently, it has no intention of letting argieland off the other US$4 billion either. Paris Club rules actually forbid any reduction in a country's debt. Touch wood, Clever Kiciloff is going to get a surprise.

    If Argentina is allowed to get away without paying, they will all jump on the band wagon,

    Now if the boot was on the other foot, and we owed Argentina billions,
    1, would they let us off-
    2, or would they demand every penny,
    If you think [1] then let em go,
    If you think [2] then they should pay every penny, full stop..

    Europe owes America trillions and more trillions from generations of sacking... The day we sum up the debt, how are you going to pay?

    Argentina should do the same you lot did, let time pass while whistling in the air...

    I think it is Argentine that owes the indigenous people s.

    plus what they owe to the Paris Club.

    Oh dear. That's an awful lot of debt.

    Cat food para todos !!!!!

    (thanks yankeeboy!)

    Let me point out your hypocrisy, ilsen.

    “I think it is Argentine that owes the indigenous people s.”
    ”(thanks yankeeboy!)”

    Surely you are of the opinion that yanqui shoud pack and move to York, the old one, and pay back what he and his owes to the NA indigenous.... No?

    Stevie@9: “Europe owes America trillions and more trillions from generations of sacking... The day we sum up the debt, how are you going to pay?”“

    You must be losing it....but tell me, by ”we sum up the debt“, d'you mean that you & The Trolls are going to do this calculation ?? Get real !
    Start now, and you might complete it by the end of the Century......and don't forget, you can use your bog roll on both sides...One for the ”sum”, one for your bum...

    anyone with a modicum of more intelligence than you can see that you cut n pasted my words from @10.
    I was recognising yankeeboy for using his hilarious and insightful reference to the soon to come majority Argie diet of cat food.
    Respect is obviously something you have yet to learn.
    Watch your European HOSTS, you may even learn some manners!
    Good luck!

    First of all, I use gmail. If you are trying to advertise for your very own server, I say thank but no thanks.

    As for the cut and paste.
    Indeed I cut and pasted. I even used the “ ” to make it totally idiot proof, so even you would get it.

    I'm glad you did...

    So, yanqui should not pack and move back to York then?

    With the exception of Think, you lot are a bunch of balanced protectors of Nazis and murderers of innocent. And that's just in the case of Ukraine.

    I haven't heard any of you lot, except Anbar, condemning the coup in Ukraine nor the hiring of snipers to kill people in order to create an opinion.

    That's about as balanced as you are...

    Ilsen @17...If not mistaken, in the recent past Stevie posted that he was Uruguayan...and gave no hints towards the possibility that he lives anywhere else, other than...Uruguay. He also said he had an English aunt - from whom he obviously learned nothing - and that he had Spanish and Turkish ancestry....let's give him a discount for his rants.... he is somewhat confused..
