    Sounds like the FI and Chilean doctors are curing that “open wound” the Bolivian was on about.

    During my tour of Brazil I met an Argentinian who told me her countrymen are still really really ticked off about Chile's support of Britain during the Falklands war (despite the fact Argentina nearly went to war with Chile themselves!).

    Is that a CT scanner they're talking about?-Paulcedron take note-no need for scanners in the Islands.

    Pete, with all respect, medical care in Chile is excellent at the private clinics, such as the Clinica Alemana and Clinica Las Condes...
    We Chileans like the FI and I would ask you of one example if an islander being not treated very well.

    I think you've misunderstood Pete's post.
    He says there is no need for a CT scanner in the islands because we already get very good care in Chile.
    Nobody has said islanders aren't treated well.

    @4 Chicureo
    Obviously, because Chilean healthcare seems excellent and the Islanders are welcome, there is no need to install CT scanners in the Falklands (Paulcedron's recurring reason why apparently the Falklands are 'underdeveloped').

    Any shortfalls in Falkland healthcare can obviously be solved by going to Chile where they are treated very well. And assuming FIG pay money to Chile for this, that's another Chilean gain at Argentina's expense.
    I had not meant to imply that the islanders are not treated well in Chile-in fact it seems to me Chile is playing it's cards right to do very well out of the Islands.
