    The attacks on the Falklands will increase over the coming months - inevitable. something to look for in 6 months - helicopter leaving Olivos.

    I think S&P have been VERY GENEROUS with that rating, allowing as it does reasonable minded people to work together and pull the country out of the real danger: total default.

    BUT, and there's always one, where are they going to get these superhuman argies from: they simply don't exist.

    The ChrisR rating of The Dark Country is: RUN AWAY, RUN AWAY!

    Or to be technical: ”ZZZZZ(-) shit out of luck”.

    They brought it all on themselves by their attitude.
    l have no sympathy for them at all.
    That is very apt, ChrisR.

    @4 I am talking about the verbal attacks on the Falklands and the islanders by CFK and her pet clown Timmerman. As the financial crisis in Argentina deepens so the vitriolic rhetoric of CFK against the Falklanders will increase in an infantile and fatuous attempt to divert attention away from the real problems engulfing Argentina......the main problem being the self preservation of herself. She is the problem not the solution!

    Sadly this happens to all history's dictators,
    blame everyone else , attack everyone else , ignore the rest,

    and they all end up the same way, humiliated , and defeated, just as CFK will be
