    Dummies. You can't unilaterally modify the terms of a contract after the fact. rotting roadkill needs some hornbook.

    Yet another example of argieland's dishonesty. I feel sorry for these bondholders. Watching, as we do, the litigation in the US courts, the chances of argieland actually paying the 13 years of interest seem pretty remote. No doubt it will appeal and come out with some recently manufactured lies and/or some recently forged documents.

    An interesting thought. What effect on the recent English judgment? Shouldn't courts be taking into account the judgments of other courts? Perhaps this German court was looking at a different aspect.

    Germany ruled on the law and the lack of a cac clause in the original bond offering. Sadly the Brits are trying to defend their status as a premier financial market. This doesn't bode well for them or their position as a defender of the rule of law.

    Well done, congrats to the plaintiffs.

    As an Argentinian citizen I can only feel shame and embarrassment for this dishonest attitude form our government.

    Now what, CFK? Germany is part of the evil conspiracy also ?

    How is it that the Argentine government can continue to borrow, when it, evidently, hasn't paid anything on these bonds since 2001? I can't imagine anyone being stupid enough to loan money to this government -- better to buy Greek bonds, at least the ECB might bail them out, and give some of the money back.

    SebaSvtz I admire your honesty and valour! The trolls perhaps will have a field day - you will be accused of being a “ cipayo”.

    Thanks gordo1. It is impossible not to speak up your mind before the nonsense we are facing down here.

    Thank you for speaking out.

    It's good to hear some real opinions speaking out from what is otherwise, “The Dark Country”
