you are obviously well informed on Argentina and argentinians...,
poor people..? everybody in south america is poor if the are not rich,
seems that countries which were spanish or portugese colonies
all suffer from this social strata, no middle class possible, the rich grab everything, Argentinias is corrupt to the core and so are many Argentinians,
they are also bullies not much liked by their neighbours because of their arrogance and pushyness. A good example.., I was living on an island in spain
were many ex pat argentinians had also made their home, we all loved to play beach tennis and in the spring and fall there was usually enough room for everyone, but come sommer there was no room and the only bunch still playing
beach tennis were the Argos, declaring it to be " their " beach and so they were
entitled to act how they pleased. Lovely bunch but I prefer the british,they are more charming...

There is a big chance that source is biased. Isn't the UK elections coming in 3 weeks?

Well, Argentina has been royally screwed by the two mentioned countries for many years. ...
I'm not sure I havemuch to say regarding the lawsuit other than it wouldn't surprise me if the countries/corporations involved in this were actually side drilling into Argentina's own oil and sticking it to these poor people once again in the name of profit.

Surely its only recently that the public were told that there was not enough in the defence budget to defend the Falklands were another fracas to start up.
That also doesn't include the idea that without the USA expressing an interest in making war with Argentina, the UK is most unlikely to have any desire to fight there again, especially if its on behalf of oil companies. I suspect the idea of blatantly using British soldiers lives for the benefit of corporations to drill for oil, would likely sink any election hopes for the tories -
