    “We have come back to the road we should never have left.”

    A clear example of the U.S. intentions to keep Latin America under its boot and the corresponding willingness of wealthy and powerful Argentines to be their arselickers.

    Of course, Mattis and Aguad's wishful expressions will be tested against the reality of Argentina's need for investment, China's willingness to come up with funds, and the U.S. increasing international isolation.

    Yes Enrique, your comrades in Argentina should follow your similarly Marxist minded friends in Venezuela. That seems to be working out very well for them...

    Chicu, we know your ilk.

    You are of those who cheered Pinochet when he filled the Estadio Nacional in Santiago with prisoners - in the name of stopping “communists.” (A word used to define anybody who wasn't in tune with the repression).

    Kidnappings, torture, summary executions by the thousands. A broken country. All in the name of “stopping communists.” Hey, what's a few thousand people when it's a matter of cleaning up the communists?

    Hey Chicu, don't let facts get on the way of your self-righteous mind.
