    Really? More submarines, after what happened to the last one? Who does Argentina anticipate having a war with anyway? Their biggest regional rival is Brazil!

    “Who does Argentina anticipate having a war with anyway?”

    Absolutely. But contracts such as these will make a small group of people immensely wealthy. Corners will be cut, old technology will be used, but the citizens will pay it like it's first class job.

    All of this while every day more children are sleeping on the streets in Argentina.

    Quite impressive! ANY Tom, Dick & Carlos is supposed to have submarines nowadays! How soon can the Drugs-Transport to the US+Europe be cheaper after the agreement?

    What could possibly go wrong? I pity the poor sailors who will have to work in these subs even after their “repair and refurbishment”.

    What is your vehement criticism against their sincere attempts of acquiring some scrap for a highly lucrative & clandestine drug-transport to the 1st World Countries?
