Argentina, US in diplomatic spat after cargo seized


www.spacewar.com

Argentina on Monday accused the United States of being uncooperative with a probe into why undeclared weapons and drugs were sent the South American country on a US military aircraft last week.

The diplomatic spat went public after Buenos Aires authorities seized what they said were undeclared weapons and drugs, but US officials described it as routine equipment for training the Argentine federal police.

"They must give an explanation," Timerman said. "The United States must understand that they can't sent war materials without informing the government. And now they refuse to cooperate with the investigation."

But the US State Department on Monday said it was "puzzled and disturbed" by the seizure of what it said was routine equipment for police training. "


YUP, they'll give an "explanation " , wait and see/watch Argentina THE FOLLOWING MONTHS...

Here is a fresh version of this from the Associated Press


February 15, 2011
Associated Press
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Argentina is accusing the U.S. military of trying to sneak guns and spy equipment into the country under the guise of providing a routine police training course -- a charge disputed Monday by a U.S. diplomat.

Argentine authorities say they seized nearly 1,000 cubic feet of undeclared equipment, describing it as machine guns and ammunition, drugs and spy equipment. It was on a U.S. Air Force C-17 cargo plane that landed Thursday with material for a training course that a U.S. Special Forces team had been invited to provide to Argentina's federal police.



www.military.com...

It's a pretty disturbing account of how the U.S. Government/military does business, and Washington never does anything but make 'innocent' and 'misunderstood' mistakes.

Usually once these 'training courses' are completed, the leaders of the police and military units that are trained are quietly put on the CIA payroll to subvert those national institutions of their own nation's for raw intelligence and presumably loyalty to the U.S. in coups, invasions and covert operations.

Good to see them getting caught red handed at it for a change and a government actually standing up to it.

I know what, Hillary Clinton did her worldly rounds after Wikileaks showed up the US Govt for what they really are so how about they send Hillary down there and sort out this mess?

In the mean time that and other articles on this embarrassing incident will most probably do its rounds worldwide in a matter of days.

I think the biggest worry is for the poor Argentinian people who would be faced against their police with 1000sq ft of new weapons and ammunition courtesy of the world police of the good ol USA..

Are they (also) expecting/planning protests? The government that is.

Let's face the facts here - the US has regarded south america as its private playground for decades now.

In fact the number of war crimes perpetrated far outweighs those of Iraq and Afghanistan, but in the forgotten wars of SA nobody seems to care for the reprehensible behaviour of the alphabet agencies in running private wars and drug smuggling operations.
