    “We know who wrote it: the same person who announced the country was in default,”

    Well, that is true so I guess we can be assured the statement on insecurity is also true.

    CFK is more scared than I thought.

    A first.

    She says,“We know he is.”

    He replies, “So what, I'm not one of the people you can intimidate!”

    “Let me tell you, I'm not mad and they are not going to make me furious, ..... the first thing I demand is respect, that they respect us as a country”.

    “Maybe he thought: ‘I can provoke her with this statement…….. so I am going to go on national television and rant for two hours about how this has not affected me at all.”

    Honestly, can't someone restrain her?

    Argieland is a lawless place. The 'police' are just as likely to kill as anyone else. CFK's message is akin to “We know where you live”. You don't 'demand' respect, you earn it. CFK and argieland have earned nothing but disgust. Why would an interin ambassador seek to be 'kicked out'? He could just call home and say he needs to be out of there. I'd like to call it part of the victim mentality. Does CFK or argieland have a 'mentality'? Mentality implies mind.

    rotting roadkill demanding respect? lol.

    How Cretina, do you propose to extract respect from anyone? With your wealth? With your military power? With your great intellect? Help me understand.

    CFK targets US
    As noted in the previous blog,

    She can either put in a claim for the united states,
    or try to blockade you,
    or even Bann USA ships that carry the US flag banned from south American ports.

    you were

    So wait, there hasn't be a huge uptick in crime? Didn't CFK just militarize the public hospitals, soccer games, etc etc etc.

    What a crazy place.

    I bet she talks to the mirrors in Casa Rosada so she can have an “intelligent” conversation with somebody.

    Further proof that the only truly fearful weapon left in their arsenal is scripted rhetoric.

    Interesting to note that she has decided to make the US the enemy instead of the UK for a change. Does she honestly think this kind of aggressive verbal broadside will go unnoticed in Washington?

    It is a bit rich demanding respect when she spends most of her time insulting everyone under the sun and including other governments

    Don't see why CFK is complaining.....I thought she might even thank the US Ambassador for giving warnings which would reduce the entry of Americans to Argentina.....Isn't that what all the Trolls claim they want ? all foreigners out of Argieland ??
    And, is taking note of such 'warnings', such an important issue that it requires a Presidential intervention ? Why doesn't CFK concentrate on 'trying' to govern the country for a change, instead of making waves for domestic consumption ?? ?

    A perceived war (unilaterally) against the USA will only have one loser.

    Would someone please remind me.....When was the last time argentina messed with the Americans??

    Was it in 1820??

    I beg your pardon, it was the new state of the United Provinces of Rio de la Plato, the forerunner of argentina.

    Our old friend Louis Vernet arrested an American ship. the HARRIET and confiscated some of her cargo, He sailed with her to Buenos Aires to put her Captain on trial for illegal sealing.

    Just look what that action brought down upon them.

    More fitting ( I suppose ) would be - “Don't let the sun go down on me”

    These warnings come out to protect people. So theres no escalating crime in Argentina. The report is a lie?

    @23 I wouldn't worry ; don't think they will raise much based on their world giving ranking:

    The much maligned ( on this site anyway) UK fares quite well in comparison.
