    This is an agreement that goes against the interests of BRICS. When Germany find out what it will miss, it will jump out.

    The biggest law breakers are the G7 countries. Non-starter I'm afraid to ask the Mafia to clean up organized crime.

    Hahahahaha you two are so funny!

    An OPINION POLL shows that people in WESTERN countries DISTRUST large companies.

    Well DERRRR!

    That's why countries such as mine have the world's HIGHEST minimum wage because we know that companies would pay lower if they could.

    Blind TRUST is where you get presidents such as Dilma and Kirchner who claim they are improving the country but take perfectly capable economies and run them so far into the ground that they actually fall behind others absolutely and not just relatively.

    I don't care about Brazil.

    Argentina will never again participate in the current world system. What kind of a fool would choose to participate in anything where you would be treated so unfairly, have no voice in shaping that system, and be surrounded by nations like yours that have absolutely no respect for you as a country or people?

    Argentina is neck deep in the “current world system”.

    The fact you keep using the Internet to reply just proves it.

    You can't escape. So suck it up.

    You're a member of the EU, WTO, Unasur, Mercosur and dozens of other facets of the “current world system”.

    I hate to disappoint you..... actual I lie, I'm ecstatic that you are continually disappointed. It's what you deserve in life for being so weak. You had so much potential before your weak will was overwhelmed by others.

    You are correct though. I have no respect for you or your country. Such massive failures to reach potentials disgusts me.

    Good luck with your next president. Hope you can handle the disappointment.

    The internet is not the current world system. You obviously have no reply.

    Argentina has escaped, which is why it is hated by so many in the world, we refused to toe the line.

    But I'm glad you have now admitted your bias and personal hatred. And all this time you claimed “I have no problem with Argentina or Argentines”.

    So you LIED all along.

    When you don't respect someone, you have a problem with them. Or at the very least, they will have a problem with you.

    Finally honesty from an Ozzer. Maybe you were not drunk tonight.

    @6 Tobias

    Have you ever wondered why the world economy is the way it is?

    It's because it EVOLVED that way. There weren't a bunch of men sitting around a table in a smokey back room planning it, in the secret knowledge that one day they'd have one over on Argentina.

    The current world economy works because no other system does. Oh, others have been tried and FAILED over the years.

    Face it, political belief cannot make economics behave the way that you want it to. That is why your country's economy is so fecked up. And burying your head in the sand and hoping it all goes away doesn't work either.

    The world economy has evolved from the days when people used to barter goods and services with each other, to the advent of money ('s uses were 1st recorded in Ancient China, Japan, India and Mesopotamia...none of which are European - so those wiley Asians planned Argentina's downfall!) more than 1000 years BCE. That's over 3000 years ago to you Tobias.

    So the modern economic system is based on the ancient economic system. And it works, and has worked for thousands of years. Only deadbeat countries like Argentina refuse to toe the line.

    Years ago, if your country owed money to another country and refused to pay, they'd just turn up with an army and take reparations. Fortunately for you, Tobias, international law doesn't allow that anymore...until it's been through the courts.

    It shouldn't be too long now before all Argentine assets overseas are seized by the bailiffs.

    And Tobias, no matter what YOUR personal beliefs are, Argentina NEEDS the World far more than the World needs Argentina. Soon your country will be on it's knees, begging bowl in hand, desperate to be allowed back into international money markets. But because your country is so untrustworthy the price of readmission will be very high indeed.

    Oh Nostrils do you ever have the feeling of déjà vu?

    Every couple of months you have this whole A-HAH moment where you think you have suddenly found me out..... again.... and again.

    I do blame your Argentinean education!

    I said:
    “I have no respect for you or your country.”

    You said:
    “But I'm glad you have now admitted your bias and personal hatred.”

    Again I said:
    “I have no respect for you or your country.”

    Now for someone of your supposed intelligence and abilities to learn hundreds upon thousands of new words in foreign languages (for little benefit - how's that for the definition of futile).... you seem to have a severe..... like bordering on retardation severe.... inability to understand clear words.

    RESPECT.... there is even a song that spells the bloody word!

    Respect is earned.

    “And all this time you claimed 'I have no problem with Argentina or Argentines'.”

    Indeed I don't. Not having respect for someone or something does not equate to a problem. It quite simply means I have no respect. If that means you have a problem with me then I honestly don't give a sh!t - your opinion and beliefs have no impact on me and are totally unimportant.

    I can see why you have amounted to so little in life. Your cognitive dissonance is delicious.

    You don't change me..... I change YOU! Just remember that!


    That is how weak and powerless and undeserving of respect you are - but don't worry it isn't a problem for me! Bahahahahahahahaha

    And this is where you lose, Ozzer, because “respect is earned” is the quintessence of the Anglo mentality, a benighted, sepulchral, emetic mentality at that.

    Respect is earned? What does that mean? I means the ANGLO respects NO ONE.

    Which is what I have said all along.

    You see, civilized human beings respect all other human beings, and indeed non-human living creatures as well, regardless of whether they have earned anything or not. The mere fact they are all alive merits them a basic respect.

    Respect is not earned, it is lost. I respect anyone of Argentine nationality upon first encounter. They have not done anything to me so why would I not show them respect.

    In Angloland, apparently, there is no mutual respect accorded upon first encounter, which is a luculent explication of why Anglo history, particularly British history when encountering other people's, is so atrocious and iniquitous.

    It all becomes clearer now, does it not.

    Respect without reason or worth is by its very nature unreasonable and worthless.

    Well said, we agree.

    In the Anglo mentality, “life” (human or not), has no worth. Explains everything the Anglo has done and does pretty much right?

    For someone who continually claims such high intelligence and a great ability to learn foreign languages, you really need to learn the difference between being respectful and having respect for.

    And there you go again making stuff up. You are so like your president. I wonder if it must be national trait? Human life has no worth? Your non-sequitur is so amusing it is cringeworthy.

    I'm talking about respect but the voices in your head suddenly turned that into human life?

    Honestly why did you even bother getting an education in Argentina? It hasn't equiped you for anything.
