    Expect more impotent sabre-rattling from La Casa Rosada...

    Meanwhile, any news on those International Arrest Warrants?

    I look forward to the future Argentine efforts to arrest Oil Chief Executives and Try them under 'domestic law' in Argentina.

    They keep promising this, but no action so far.

    Why could that be?

    'Buenos Aires would complain to the UN over the oil project and might take the case to the international courts in the Hague,' said Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana, 12 February 2010 (two-thousand-and-ten).

    “Talk is Cheep” A great Album by a great man....

    But seriously, that is all they have anymore.... The NY court of appeals turned them down AGAIN ...! The UN will do the same... !! They can complain and complain until they are blue in the face but nobody listens because there is no validity to any of the toss that spews ... Did anyone see that comment in the Clarin ... TMBOA “I hope that I won't have to return in 2019” alluding to the fact she might actually run again.. Bwahahahaha.... Hopefully she will be living out her last days in prison...!

    Yes, well Argentina seems to be surrounded by PIRATES that only seem to get stronger and stronger despite Cristina's threats. This little gem in the news I found interesting as Paul Singer is never going to find himself without very powerful connections...

    @4 Chicureo

    Interesting contribution from you, as always.
    Thank you for that.

    It seems that Argentina is becoming so insular that they have forgotton that there are massive external forces that could affect them, directly or indirectly. Rubio is very anti-chavista, and by extension no friend of Cristina.
    Decisions made in Washington can have huge consequences across the globe, some completely unintentional, some purposeful.

    Meanwhile they close their eyes and ears, and continue their own circus.

    Have you seen the next act?

    Do they really want a coke-head anywhere near the new government?

    It seems so if BsAs Herald is to be believed.

    Haven't they just gone over to the KTeam big time? That explains it then.

    From the photo of Maximmus Prattus he does look like Boss Eye his dad, so the rumours about his parentage seem to be unfounded.

    Oops, looks like the air hostess is in trouble for her governments 'big' mouth.

    Added to that is this delicious bonus:

    Poor Argies. Impotent. Useless. Broke.

    “Following its success with the Zebedee drill, the rig Eirik Raude is moving a short distance to start the second well of the latest Falkland Islands exploration campaign. ”

    what success are these imbeciles talking about?
    and it seems that drill is moving a distance so short that the first oil well is the same as the second.
    if you can call that cesspit an oil well...
