    Macaroni hates due process.

    Hey Mauricio, you're not Cretina.

    You can't get away with this fiat governance.

    Of course he can AND he needs to until the rest of The Dark Country is free of the 15M peronistas.

    Seems like sense to me or are you saying they should be K cronies?

    Interesting. Could you elaborate on how to achieve your goal of freeing Argentina of 15 million of its inhabitants?

    (being an RCC prisoner you should know what that means)

    As you have been on here 'before you (me)' you should also know the answer EXCEPT, according to MP archives for 2010 NO trace of gordo1 or any other such as fathead or fatty (remember I had to tell you what gordo was in Jibber-jabber).

    So how do you explain that, you weren't LYING, were you?

    When YOU stop calling me names, I will stop posting like this. Up to you 'gordo' or whatever you real tag is.

    Come on, Chris. Again, how do you implement your permanent, definitive (final?) solution for Argentina that, according to your post at #2 consists of freeing the country from 15 million Peronists?

    Quite simple Enrique, just by stoping paying these 15 M peronists' bill and forcing them to pay for their own energy, transport, water and even food, by forcing them to work and they will stop being peronists. They will have to take responsabilities and they won't be happy of “paying” for others living expenses.

    With this big amount of money saved Argentina would be able to invest in education, healt and assist true and honest poor people that peronism like to increase.

    @ 11 pgerman

    That is a good start but the real problem makers are those murderers and gangsters who were freed by TMBOA to 'help' defend Kirchnerismo.

    They should be rounded up and returned to prison and if, as they often stated 'not without a fight' then shoot them for resisting arrest.

    It would also be a good idea when the Macri powerbase gets stronger to proscribe the Peron Parties and order them to disband. This would get rid of these arseholes from government on pain of jail time.

    The big problem of course is the Mafia and their expectation of 'helping' the government like they did for TMBOA.

    Good question. ChrisR suggests the suppression of millions of Argentine citizens because of their political beliefs--he even promotes summary executions by police using the excuse of “resisting arrest.”

    Hey, why stop there! ChrisR even suggests the proscription of the “Peron Parties.”

    Chris demonstrates his blatant ignorance of history. Indeed, as you reminded him, tens of thousands of Argentine citizens were kidnapped and illegally assassinated in the 1970s.

    Also, the military dictators who deposed Juan Peron in 1955 made it illegal the simple mention of the names of Peron and Evita, as well as of any symbols of Peronism. Peron was re-elected on a landslide 17 years later.

    I won't say yet that ChrisR promotes hatred. I prefer to believe he is simply an unhappy individual--nasty, brutish and short.

    Always looking backward with hate in your heart for the new administration.

    Clearly, murdering Nuns was a real advance by the lamentable Junta, all puffed up with their own importance and missing the point. They missed the point of the Falkland's and it was that that finished them, not the argies who were singing their praises in the squares of BsAs: were YOU one of them, or had you runaway before that?

    Nasty, brutish and SHORT? Moi? I'm quite tall you argie wanabe.

    Of the 3 you choose to deny the last one? I actually laughed out loud.

    And I was serious ChrisR; the Junta didn't just murder Nuns, they also killed Montoneros, Peronists, Marxists, trade unionists and more. People you would certainly call terrorists. I thought you approved of governments murdering and torturing terrorists when they find it necessary?

    Don't take much notice of ChrisR aka Andy Capp.

    He really doesn't know anything about Latin America - he is a British refugee having left to find a better life in Uruguay and then complains about everything!

    I want to know who you think the terrorists were in Argentina.

    Since you think the Tupas were terrorists and you've supported the Military Dictatorship in Uruguay dealing with them 'in whatever manner works to preserve the rest of society', it would make sense for you to support the Military Dictatorship in Argentina as well. You agree with their policy of banning Peronism too.

    @ 19 DT

    Please show me a single post where I have supported the Military Dictatorship in either UYU or AR.

    What I have consistently said is that the Tupas, who nobody voted for in the elections that preceded their sedition and failed coup, ensured that the military would take power: they were asked to by the elected president who had utterly failed to contain the cancer that is the Tupas.

    Had the president taken strong action when there were less than a thousand of the scum the military would never been in the frame.

    But you see, this is like all the other do-gooders on here who live in the UK, who have never experienced (as I have) civil strife and think that you only have to talk 'nicely' to people to get them to do 'the right thing'.

    It is a fact that the Peronistas and the rump of the 'K's are fomenting outright civil mischief in TDC. It will only become Argentina again when the hard core of this bunch of cretins are removed from society in a manner that stops them having any further influence. Now if you think that can be done without bloodshed, I have to disagree, their previous actions suggest that is impossible.

    ”...the Peronistas and the rump of the 'K's are fomenting outright civil mischief (they must be removed from society and) if you think that can be done without bloodshed, I have to disagree.”

    Disgusting.

    It is truly amazing that someone would, in our day and age, suggest using violence to eliminate the political opposition in a country where democracy has functioned without interruption for over 30 years.

    Argentina has an elected government and an elected legislative opposition and political differences can be sorted out in a civilized manner. However, an indidivual nicknamed ChrisR begs to differ and suggests a return to a violence nobody wants in Argentina.

    That's sick.

    “Could you elaborate on how to achieve your goal of freeing Argentina of 15 million of its inhabitants ?”

    An idea that comes to mind, is to show them Peronism (which today means populism and corruption) doesn't work. While it favours those in power, it screws the people, kidding them into believing theyre just doing fine with far less than they could have, IF the government were serious..

    @14 Reekie
    “ChrisR suggests the suppression of millions of Argentine citizens because of their political beliefs--he even promotes summary executions by police using the excuse of “resisting arrest.”

    By your statements in the two am posts, it would appear that you're becoming pretty stressed out and emotionally unstable ..... However, to reach the desired objective, i.e., to get rid of 15M 'peronistas', pgerman's suggestion @ 11 sounds like a good start. On the other hand, it is YOU who deduced that ChrisR is promoting ”summary executions” by the police....you daft ? Those suspected of habitually helping themselves to public funds, for their own benefit) should indeed be prosecuted and jailed - IF they choose to fight back through armed resistance - then shooting them sounds reasonable. That's how they should treat nutcases who think they can oppose the government through violence. Your liberal interpretation of much of what is said here, is sending your little brain in to a spiral....sit down and take a long breath...

    @16 DT
    Perhaps you are unaware, but during the height of Peronism and idolatry to the whore Evita, many innocent people disappeared, simply because they refused to cooperate with her fabricated image and fake campaign of fighting for the poor.
    I have first hand info from a close relative who was working there at the time, and who very nearly disappeared for refusing to 'donate' part of his salary to her campaign. So, not only the 'Juntas' were good at making people disappear.

    VERY NEARLY DISAPPEARED???? Oh my!!!

    Jack, I am all ears waiting to hear some precisions about this Very Nearly Disappearance.

    Reminds me of a time when I very nearly passed a test. And the school refused to hand my diploma!

    Or the time when I very nearly went on holidays. I still have pictures from that. All blank.

    But the best is when I heard Jack Bauer is very nearly the worst poster in MercoPress. But don't worry Jack! That's only very nearly so.

    @23 Reekie
    I doubt you were even alive when Peron was President, so you probably aren't exactly a reliable source of information as to what used to happen back then, or what “very nearly” happened....it's no use trying to be sarcastic - which you obviously think is 'smart' - to sidestep an issue you obviously know f*ck all about. If you want an example of something “very nearly” happening, consider that you Reekie, in Canada, are driving home in your nice car and are still about 5 minutes away, when you feel the uncontrollable urge to crap......well, imagine that you only just make it home in time to sit on the pan and drop your gut....you see, you “very nearly” crapped yourself. The problem with you, is that you follow through and crap yourself all the time, so “very nearly” is a concept that is hard for you to grasp.
    As to your opinion that “Jack Bauer is very nearly the worst poster in MercoPress”, you must be then considering that you are the worst.....Frankly, there are others whom I think are worse than you - but don't take this as a compliment.
    Regarding your holiday pictures, if they turned out blank, may I suggest that next time you remove the lens cap...you see, you were “very nearly” successful....but you weren't. It's the story of your life.

    Well, sorry about scoffing at your post, Jack.

    Perhaps I got a bit mad about your writing about the “whore Evita.”

    Instead of blindly repeating what others say, why don't you educate yourself a bit about Argentine history? You would discover how much blind hate you've been passed on by an ultra wealthy oligarchy that hated Peron and Eva Peron just because they wanted to give a little bit more to workers and the destitute.

    You are free to disagree with this. However, calling a woman like Eva Peron “whore” (and you don't even know why) shows your political awareness and decency levels run pretty low.

    @20 ChrisR
    I'm surprised. I got the distinct impression from your earlier posts denouncing the Tupas and advocating the torture and execution without trial of suspected terrorists, that you supported the methods of the Dictatorship in Uruguay, if not
    the Dictatorship itself.

    And I don't believe that “you only have to talk 'nicely' to people to get them to do 'the right thing'”. I simply think that governments should avoid unnecessary bloodshed and should follow their own laws as well as international laws on human rights. Also banning political parties both undermines democracy, and is generally not very effective at reducing support for them anyway.

    @22 jack Bauer
    Do you have a source for people disappearing during the Perons' rule (other than your relative)? I have never heard of this.

    @25 Reekie
    Anyone who lived in B.A. in the 1950's knows that Evita came from a humble origin and a broken family, which wasn't her fault. She was not particularly attractive, and had a rebellious personality, but she was determined to get ahead in life...even if it meant sleeping around in the show biz. Up to here, quite normal.
    Her slate may have been wiped clean (to most of the Argies) after she married Peron in 1945, but that is when she showed her true colours, arrogantly posing as a saint and believing she could do anything she wanted.....so yes, in my dictionary , that made her a whore.
    Your opinion that “Eva Peron just wanted to give a little bit more to workers and the destitute” is the rosy Peronista version for the idiots to consume.....the “workers and the destitute” saw very little of that money, as most of it went straight in to her and Peron's pockets. So maybe, YOU should educate yourself.

    @26 ChrisR
