Mariner, I understand that when you talk about a joint governance you have a positive, constructive wishful thinking, but you are missing very important points, that are real, hard facts.
1.-You said the islanders will be benefit making " a great deal" with this ... well let me tell you, if you check the comments sections of the ( serious ) newspapers in Argentina, you will see that at least 50% of the Argentinians think that the Kelpers have absolutely nothing to win from any kind of relation with Argentina. The crime rate, the inflation rate, the corruption levels, the lack of a serious plan to develop the country, the financial war between the central government of CFK and the Provinces, the restriction of basic rights ( the last one : There will be only one credit card allowed in the supermarkets, controlled by the government, no more VISA, MASTERCARD or similar will be allowed ).... These are just a few examples of the reasons cited for the people who recommend the kelpers to stay away from Argentina ( this is people LIVING in Argentina, ergo, knowing the hard reality of the country ).
2.- You expect " a peaceful solution to the conflict " ....well, sadly, there are certain positions from certain politicians in this region that are just absolutely rigid and leave no space to any hope for a practical solution of the conflicts, conflicts that are, by the way, pretty artificial, since there is only one side who has the rights, and the other part is just complaining against a reality that is just impossible to change in the next centuries. Look at the Bolivian claims against Chile. There is a treaty signed in 1904. There is a hard reality ( Antofagasta is Chilean territory ). There are gestures of good will from Chile to facilitate the trading of Bolivian goods through Chilean ports, with big investments ( in tangible infrastructure like ports, roads and rails ) from the Chilean side of the border. What do you hear from "the other side", Bolivia ? We want sovereignty over the Pacific Ocean. We want Antofagasta back. Our way or nothing. Well, with that position, the answer from Chile will be, for ever, NOTHING. I can assure you that, CFK, has exactly the same rigid position regarding the Falklands, and I found the British government has been really polite indeed. Just recently the Foreign Ministry of Argentina ( Timmerman ) visited London, but refused a meeting with his British counterpart because the Islanders representatives will be present in that meeting. Even more, they had the bad taste of publishing a diatribe against the U.K. in British newspapers. In this two examples of Bolivia Vs. Chile and Argentina Vs. U.K. , you can see very clearly that there is one side making an effort to take constructive ways, and other side saying "my way or no way".... the funny ( or sad ? ) thing is, the ones that are denying any flexibility to go forward, have not any chance of getting nothing by other ways like a military action or a demand in international courts, they just CAN'T win.
|Quoting Derico (Reply 203):|
Ok. We are melting down. You know better than I do.
(this is amazing)
The amazing thing here is that you don't see the reality. That reality is not constructed by RussianJet, or me, or any other member here. The reality is very easy to check with a very basic knowledge of economy. Is not me who says this, just make a Google search for any financial expert of any prestigious publication ( you can choose between The Economist, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Financial Times, America Economia, Bloomberg.....) All of them, ALL
, have the same conclusion after a calm, emotionless analysis : The recipe for a meltdown in Argentina is absolutely clear. You have high inflation with small ( if any ) growth, a desperate intent of price control ( something that has failed miserably, for centuries, in every country or society that took that way ), a notorious crisis in the supply of energy ( necessary for growth ), an extremely low foreign investment, low level of reserves in the Central Bank and lots of payments ahead ( and as you know, the chance of an adverse result in the New York Courts in a couple of weeks could make all this scenario much much worst) .... all the signs are there.
Add to that, all this problems are managed by a megalomaniac woman who frequently demonstrates her ignorance in basic aspects of general knowledge ( do you remember when she said that the water formula was H - 2 - ZERO ? )
Here is her last jewel in the string of contributions to the modern science :
" The Diabetes is a desease of the rich people, they get Diabetes because they eat too much and have a sedentary life"
