    That was the reason why Berlusconi didn't want to se Gaddafi overthrown in Lybia it was not just about oil. Gaddafi had reached an agreement with him to stop immigrants pasing by Lybia. Now the humanitarian disaster will only get worse.

    Why doesn't Europe put all the refugees on direct flights to Argentina?
    Would save a lot of money long term. Plenty of open spaces and resources there.
    Europe is getting quite crowded these days.
    Cristina thinks she is an international stateswoman, here is a great opportunity to prove it. Being a global leader is about giving, not just taking.

    Best option will be to sink the 'refugee' boats at sea. Anybody told Africa it can move to Europe? In the middle of the Mediterranean, nobody will see you drown. Or care!

    This is a great opportunity for Argentina to show the world how much it cares and provide homes for these people.
    Argentina cares about Human Rights and the dispossessed of the world, right?

    They need to send them to the Las Malvinas, so they get some new bloodlines in the place.
    We will also give them all our La Campora fools as an added bonus!
