“Change is possible, thanks so much for having believed”, were the first words of Argentine president-elect Mauricio Macri when he appeared on stage at his packed headquarters in Buenos Aires, Sunday evening. Visibly emotional and euphoric, Macri said “it is a historic day for Argentina, a change of times. A change that will guide us to the future”. Read full article

    ”To our brothers from the region and the world: we want to have good relations with all countries, we want to work with all countries on a cooperation agenda“, underlined the president elect.

    That message will be very well received by many people...

    Best wishes everyone.

    Historically other countries have slapped off Argentina's attempts at cooperation.

    I fear his words will go unheeded but nothing is impossible. But if the other nations on the world, as in the past, wish to get 100% their way in negotiations, then sadly these words will be to no avail.

    What are you going to do now ? It seems that Macri wishes to join the outside world and take Argentina with him.

    I'm sorry what does that mean? I want to do nothing.

    I just fear that history will repeat itself and see Argentina's hand cut off when extended out.

    @2,4. If Macri takes your view, you're going to die. Here are some tips. Expunge the “Malvinas Myth”. There isn't a single word of truth in it. Formally recognise that there is a budding nation on your doorstep and your obligation under the UN Charter is to accept it as you would the middle of Buenos Aires. Quit lying. That includes YOU. The WORLD has operational systems. Argieland can't change them. It's too small and insignificant. Pay your debts. It's only about US$20 billion. If you quit trying to support the worthless, e.g. unemployed, students, faggots, kinks, recidivists, thieves and other criminals, xenophobes, billions could be saved. Don't forget to sack most of the police forces and replace them with indigenous people who understand the law. Try to remember that you are “occupiers” with little “right” to be where you are. If the United Nations Organisation was forced to be honest and the “important” world powers acted, you'd be floating around the Atlantic wondering where to go. When you extend that “hand” remember to give instead of trying to steal.

    @2 “Historically other countries have slapped off Argentina's attempts at...”

    ...theft disguised as...

    “...cooperation”.

    May be a more accurate statement?

    Evidence: Default, Malvinas myth, default, YPF, default...

    NOSTRILS previous message, “Fnck off, we hate you !”

    Poor Macri is in for an unpleasant term as a president: All the peronistas are going to do what they can to sabotage Argentina's future.

    They have done it several times before and will do it again - better to destroy the country than admit that peronist rule (and especially the Kirchnerist variant) has been disastrous.

    Excuse everyone, but I fail to comprehend what is happening.

    I am here to share my long held views on the efficacy of a fully liberalized market system. Which unfortunately the rest of the world fails to live up to.

    So in the end Argentina may invite friendship, but all it will get from protectionist outsiders is feet-dragging (on agriculture, on subsidies, on European illegitimate claims to Antarctica, etc). If not outright deceit.

    The Invisible Hand must be let work, and punish those that don't work.

    Unfortunately, I think you are quite right.

    @11 NOSTRILS

    The Invisible Hand... of Allah?

    The only foot dragging is Argentina preventing Mercosur and Brazil , Uruguay, Paraguay from signing FTA

    There must be fully liberalized free duty in order for FTA to work. Europe has been dragging its feet since it only wants the products where they have competitive advantages to be tariff-free, but MERCOSUR products that have competitive advantage to be tarriffed or outright banned under various pretexts.

    Until the Invisible Hand is let work, Europe will continue on it's current sordid trajectory.

    Argentina can live without Europe, the question is can Europe now live without Argentina.

    Nostril, Toby, TTT or whatever you are calling yourself this week. Everyone knows that Antarctica all belongs to Britain, Oz and New Zealand. Just look at the names of places, the Ross Sea, Queen Elizabeth Land etc. Read your history.

    Can Europe live without Argentina? I think we have been managing fine for decades so what's new ?

    As to Antarctica are there NO limits to your country's colonialist expansionism.

    Huh Canberra?

    A city founded by an independent country. Not as a colonial outpost.

    Sheesh Argentinean education!

    @20 Capt. Poppy

    My son put me onto an Internet conspiracy site, Counter Culture News, which then led to RT News to corroborate stories.

    One of the 'posters' was jumping on the bandwagon, calling out the Royal Family as pedophiles etc. etc. ...

    His name was. “ Tobi Gelando”

    Probably one and the same. I read various media outlets and some of the names are near identical and the writing is the same as many here.
