    Carlos Zanini, read a statement warning that ”consequences of those actions (seizure) will rest upon the United Nations because of the international responsibilities relating to its Judicial branch decisions“.

    WTF has it got to do with the UN or is Argentina going to get the C24 poodles to make one of it's authorative pronouncements?

    Kickitoff is unwittingly setting himself up to be the fall guy for TMBOA.

    That will finish him forever in The Dark Country: he is already one of her “bitches” and when she goes she will leave all the “bitches” to fend for themselves.

    I shall enjoy seeing that.

    He's still out there trying to win favor with the judge by calling him 'absurd'?

    OK, so depositing the funds in the manner that they did may technically allow them to claim that they are not Argentine assets anymore. But isn't that doing exactly what the judge told them not to do?

    Argentina, you WILL pay your FULL debt... or you'll go into Default, again.
    Your “Viveza Criolla” you re so proud of and mocked everybody else will not work anymore. It's the “former corrupt governments fault of Menem!” I often hear as a kind of excuse. So what? Do you wanna say, that after every ellection all 4 years your debts is void ? ROFL... You will pay, and then probably the resting 92% you screwed t have a chance to also reopen the debt claim too. Then Justice will finally have won. Karma is a bitch, unfortunately for you.

    Bom Dia -

    In this morning's news, US Judge Griesa is stating that the money deposited this week must be returned to Argentina.

    Evidentially Elvis and the Argentine government tried to use those funds to pay only those that took a scalping with the reduced amounts, and not those holding out for full payment.

    Did Sr. Memem come up with that plan too ?

    And in better news, BRASIL and CHILE compete today with full teams. It will be interesting to see how Uruguai and Colombia fair later, with one absent.
