    Hilarious. Russia invades, subverts other countries and isn't a threat. Argieland constantly demands sovereignty over someone else's territory and tries to buy combat aircraft, but isn't a threat.

    Then she won't mind when her shiny 'new' aircraft get shot down, will she?

    Playing to the home audience as usual.

    She is certainly lying when she says:
    “Argentine President Cristina Fernández revealed on Thursday she does not have any favourite presidential candidates for the upcoming October elections”

    She does, it's herself. Good job the attempt to alter the Constitution failed.

    Far too friendly interview. These State Run media companies under the regimes like RT, TeleSur, Vision 7 make of arselicking politicians a religion.

    Monarchical systems are decided by heredity, not favouritism.

    Geez, this woman is appalling!

    It's simply more of CFKs projections. It happens because a control freak she reads the papers compulsively to know what people say of her. She projects far too much on many things, that is why she sounds such a disgusting and evil hypocrite all of the time.

    She knows, that everyone knows herself was appointed by Nestor Kirchner, and she has ordered polls in both BsAs province and Santa Cruz province to see if Minimo Kirchner is feasible as a candidate.

    @7. Indeed.

    We can hope. What comes first? The heart attack from being a fat gut? The bullet because he's an unmissable target? Or the polonium in the cream buns, genetically-modified beef, radioactive water? There's another plus. With him on board, Tango 01 probably wouldn't be able to take off. Effectively grounded.

    But why would she order polls? Is she just trying to establish how much she'll have to spend to get him elected as dog-shit sweeper for Buenos Aires? Call it US$145 million!

    The relation of kirchnerism with the press, has always been contradictory, especially since 2007. While it is true that during nestor kirchner's government he had a good relation with the clarin group, it's also true that he had got just the 22% of the votes in 2003, in such a deplorable social context, then it was obvious that he was going to need of clarin much more than in any other moment.
    On the other hand, if c. f. k. didn't brake with clarin, she wouldn't be able to take the most important decisions of her government, like the rase for the agrarian exports, the nationalization of pensions sistem, the transmission of football for all, the sanction of a new broadcast law etc, due to clarin had always had interests in those sectors.
    However, c. f. k's government has always been accused of making an unequal distribution of the official advertising. It's one the reasons why many ignorants criticise our public television (canal 7) and say that it's just official propaganda, it's evident that those idiots not even see it. I watch it everyday, and in the same way i can know about all the positive aspects of her government, i can also know about the denounces of corruption cases that involve her administration, about insecurity cases etc .
    On the other hand, i must confess that i understand the fury of many rabbles, i mean exactly all those troglodit economists whose advices have always been to make hard cuts on the national budget, who have failed sistematicly with their economic reports, where the warned about future economic disasters which fortunately never happened, and who usually make too partial lectures about inflation and about our deficit (espert, melconian, broda, and some others who publish in la nacion), because they know perfectly that even if opposition wins in october, they won't be able to dismantle the legacy of kirchnerism in social terms, because people have already empowered of the achievements of these years.

    You can tell this was pre-acted,
    she never mentioned the Falkland's once,

    but made sure the American investor noted,

    she may well be a very manipulative woman,
    but her looks are certainly fading,

    even in Russia, plastics still has its

    Dimwits like Axel think the nationalization and looting of ANSES was a good thing.
    You can't help people like this.

    Argentina is a generation or two away from an idiocracy.

    I always thought we captured Saeed al-Sahhaf:

    “There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!”

    “My feelings - as usual - we will slaughter them all”

    “Our initial assessment is that they will all die”

    “I blame Al-Jazeera - they are marketing for the Americans!”

    “God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis.”

    'We have destroyed 2 tanks, fighter planes, 2 helicopters and their shovels - We have driven them back.“

    ”Surrender or be burned in their tanks.“

    ”No I am not scared and neither should you be!“

    ”We have them surrounded in their tanks“

    I never know Baghdad Bob moved to Argentina. I suppose he can fit in as a latino......Baghdad Bob....Axel Arg......

    One more...

    ”I can say, and I am responsible for what I am saying, that they have started to commit suicide under the walls of Baghdad. We will encourage them to commit more suicides quickly.”

    Is he better as Axel or Baghdad?

    @ 12 Captain Poppy
    There were numerous sights that stick in my mind:

    The Abrams' travelling across frame as the idiot was saying 'we are winning'

    The armoured dozer ploughing in Iraqi troops 'dug in' to the sand berms, shortly to be their graves. What a bunch of idiots the Iraqi 'generals' were if they couldn't have foreseen that.

    The burnt out Iraqi trucks filled with skeletonised bodies on their way back from Saudi and carrying all their looted items, but it stopped them in their tracks. Pity the stupid bleeding hearts in the US were crying about all the horror they had seen. Don't these cretins realise that it was WAR, not a walk in the park?

    The apologists for bombing the shit out the Nazi's are just the same. What did they think we should have done for the German civilians who supported Hitler, pat them on the head?

    It still goes on today with a known ISIS sympathiser taking his entire 10 member family including several young children into Syria to 'support them in the Holy War'. His father, a 'councillor' in a big Muslim area claimed 'he did not know'! So he is either lying or he is a crap father: probably both.

    CFK doesn't impact the world.

    Neither she nor Argentina are important enough for that.

    Nearly all the money has gone, just give it time,this time next year Rodders , this time next year. As Argentina is doing so well why not pay back the US$ 100 billion you stole from investors?

    #13 1st Bush was a good man. One of his two mistakes, IMO, was stopping that the total and complete invasion of Baghdad. Just for the oil fires alone Saddam should have been tried then. They just should not have allowed reporters on the highway out of Kuwait. The embedded shit is ridiculous.
