    Schlosser needs to grow a pair and stop being mesmerised by a crook who 'called him to tell him the decision before it went public' as if it were a favour.

    The investigation is no such thing. Would any westerner be happy to wait DECADES without a resolution to the bombing?

    The argies know the facts. TMBOA is in it up to her arse and has now been given a breathing space, but the facts will become public, sooner or later.

    This is the Jewish way. Surrounded by hostile, corrupt, criminal individuals and under the cosh of a corrupt, criminal, degenerate regime that murders with impunity, what would any sane person do? 'Sane' equals 'not having a death wish'.
    There's a less than surprising situation here. Following the 1982 Falklands War, who should investigate and prosecute individuals for the invasion, the occupation, the war, the war crimes? Argies? Wonder if argie courts started from the premise that argie action had been declared illegal by the UN? That argieland has no claim to the Falkland Islands? These are important factors. Shouldn't the argie war criminals have been tried by an international court? As a thought, why does present-day argieland say 'It wasn't us', but still celebrate and continue various features?

    And now we have the murder of Nisman. In any crime, the first question that must be asked is 'Who benefits'? A reasonable start for an international court. CFK benefits. And has the authority to order a murder. Timerman benefits. And probably has the authority to order a murder. And he scares easy. Who else? There's a case for an international military task force. Investigators must be free to do their job. Suspects and witnesses may need to be 'persuaded'. Argie 'justice' doesn't exist. There are other things that don't exist. Argie 'honesty'. Argie 'principles'. Argie 'truth'. How long was it before argies admitted they had no idea where the Belgrano is? Wartime manoeuvres needn't be secret after the war is over. Was the Belgrano carrying soviet nuclear weapons? The soviets provided satellite data. Why not nukes? The argies 'investigate' themselves. Keeping whatever they want secret.

    Good point, Conq., he's so scared he'll let it drop.

    I wonder if all Argentines are in agreement with the Jewish Argentines ? After all, foreign terrorists murdered 85 ARGENTINIANS, or does it not matter because they were 'only' Jews??

    I wonder too, if all Jewish Argentines are in agreement with this 'spokesman'?

    Sad, betrayed by their own government twice.
    First when the terrorists got away with it, and again when they turned their backs on using the evidence, in exchange for trade, and he inevitable backhanders.

    Are there ANY Trolls of integrity out there that would speak up for their people or their race??

    Why do I bother to ask?

    Another nail in the coffin of the great construction that was going to “crush” the CFK government before the October presidential election.
    As Judge Rafecas said, it was “impossible” to open legal process based on Nisman's accusation.
    As a result, the hypothesis of Nisman being killed by agents of a government scared of his accusation pitifully crumbles as well.
    Those who keep trying to fuel the Nisman's “assassination by the government” hypothesis are setting themselves up for serious backlash.

    4 not at all Enriques

    It does not have to be a successful prosecution of CFK, just enough embarrassing questions have to raised and a few events brought to light.

    That might well be enough to trigger an assassination.

    It was only the threat that was required.

    @4. Come on, Enrique Masochist, tell us who else did it? Suicide by Nisman? After 10 years of investigation, he gives up and suicides at the last moment? Do you have a mind? Rafecas said it was 'impossible' to open legal process? There you go, illegal and illicit 'government' interference. Check around. More than 2,000 CDs worth of evidence. All read and 'considered' in days? And he started writing his 'judgement' on Day 1. On such an important case, wouldn't a couple of months be more appropriate? Perhaps ask another judge to review the material? But Nisman isn't really important. He was just an obstruction for certain members of the 'government'. Now he's dead. Murdered. Just a case of getting a tame judge to end the judicial process. And if Pollicita appeals, who gets to hear the appeal? Perhaps if Pollicita were protected by American, Australian, British and Canadian Marines? Perhaps there could be American, Australian, British and Canadian legal observers ready to stand up and point out the corruption? Perhaps you need to apply for a mind. One that works!

    #6 Conqueror!
    Of course. How wrong of me to believe I may even possess a tiny grasp on reality. I am humbled by the depth of your knowledge on how prosecutor Nisman died, who the culprits were, how long Judge Rafecas should have taken, and how Argentines need to have “big brothers” in order to do anything the right way.
    I think I'll even stop posting here and leave it up to you to give readers the right information (just kidding).

    @4 ....And that my dear boy is why your country will always be run by corrupt leaders. You accept, without a blink of an eye what they say, the good old brainwashed masses, fed a little cake and all fall in line.

    Until you have the capacity to open your eyes and question what is in front of you, you will remain a failing state. People like you are the cause of Argentinas continued faltering and their perception as a country run by idiots.

    @7. Oh do please piss off and leave things to intelligent people. I note that, as with many argies with enough money, you don't reside in argieland. Canada, isn't it? Residing in a country established by Britain, defended by Britain, espousing many British principles, except for the French losers, you seem to hate Britain. If it comes to it, because WE will come to the defence of Canada if required, will you be saying that you're not entitled and leaving? Do you live your life in accordance with Anglo-Canadian principles? Or do you demand that you have to live by argie law? You are such a hypocrite.

    You won't accept that. Because you're pretty old and your mind doesn't work anymore. And you're a journalist, so you think you know best. Why don't you go back 'home'. Where you can be murdered if you don't follow the 'government' line. Who pays you? Who's that thick? I'll be kind. Retire. Get out. Quit conning people that you know what you're talking about. You don't. Get lost!

    “I wonder too, if all Jewish Argentines are in agreement with this 'spokesman'? ”

    The answer is NO.
    On the contrary, I am deeply disappointed.
