    US could topple my government, kill me: Argentina's Kirchner

    By Daniel MEROLLA 10/2/2014

    Buenos Aires (AFP) - Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner charged in an emotional address that domestic and US interests were pushing to topple her government, and could even kill her.


    ......

    "So, if something happens to me, don't look to the Mideast, look north" to the United States, Kirchner said at Government House.
    Just hours after the US embassy here warned its citizens to take extra safety precautions in Argentina, an aggravated Kirchner said "when you see what has been coming out of diplomatic offices, they had better not come in here and try to sell some tall tale about ISIS trying to track me down so they can kill me."

    ..............

    What the hell?

    And shouldn't she be worried about dealing effectively with her country's default situation or whatever it was with that NYC hedge fund firm (which she and her administration call vultures, which is like calling water wet, we all know this) and less making up f*cking nonsense.

    It's just absurd.

    Indeed, a very paranoid one.

    Sounds like she's having a mental breakdown because her country's broke. She's already turned over every rock in Argentina looking for a leprechaun who'll give her a pot of gold, but, alas, she hasn't found one.

    No it is not absurd, the US has done it before in Argentina and other countries in South America.. either directly or indirectly by supporting a military coup.

    Maybe they should.

    I don't remember a direct take out other than Noriega off hand, but there were probably instances of such and the US certainly supported coups. Those were different times, however, in which there was good reason. I know the arguments against it, but it was war. It was fine. Only the fact, that lots of people only look at the occurrences without trying to understand the logic of the situation, allows it to look seedy. But Allende knew he had declared war on the US. That might have been his right, sure. But it was also okay to have him taken out.

    Now? Why worry about Kirchner, other than the damage it does in people's heads. That could, in fact, become dangerous some day. By then we will hopefully have a global entity to guarantee international security, however.
