    Let's hand all of our money to Kiciloff, TImerman, Kirchner, Levy, Rousseff and blame everything on Shiites in Iran when it goes to hell.

    Argentina, fast becoming Vnzla 2:0 but without the comfort of the oil cushion, (not that helps these days).
    so much for the Bolivarian Revolution, Chavez' dream is dead. He thought he could rely on Oil at $110 per barrel in order to fund the 'Socialist Dream' accross LatAm. Unfornutately this was based on Capitalist Market forces.
    Anyone else see the flaw in the plan?
    An alternate version of 'spending other peoples money', non?'
    Well, his dream has died with him. No more suitcases full of US$ cash for CKC, no more dodgy oil/soy deals for the Chavez 'Princessa' to get her dirty, sticky fingers on. No more political persuasion of the neighbours for 'cheap' oil.
    The dream has died, and I am glad. The repurcussions will ripple and swell across the continent and the 'bolivarian' gvts will fall.
    CFK doesn't realise what is coming. Soom her Nisman murder will look like small-fry.
    It's all going down. Only the Pacific Alliance will survive. And rightfully so!
    I look forward to a new balance in South America, with Chile and Colombia at the front.

    Oooh dear, they should focus on their economy and not on claiming even more land and more mouths to feed.

    @6 ChrisR

    Look forward to INDEC's forecast(25% growth?) including a self promoting video - happy smiling people with huge shiny biceps, cutting soy in the fields and singing loud songs to the motherland and doing a lot of marching to the Casa Rosada with masses of people waving 'Victory in the Malvinas flags'. (Oh shite, at this rate I'll get a job offer from INDEC).....
