ElQueso said:Kicking Argentina out of the G-20 doesn't need to be looked at as a punishment, but rather a result. Keeping them in, to me, is being an enabler.
ElQueso said:If it were to have an impact on the people, well, maybe it would light a fire under the peoples' ass? After all, who allows this continue within their own country? The people themselves..
jazrgz said:I agree 100%. us argies should be punished, this way we should in theory learn how to vote next time. As long as this authoritarian regime gets supported by the rest of the world because of pity or political correctness towards Latin America they are indeed insuring these types of governments florish and remain and in the end, the ones getting the short end of the stick is always the people ! They want to help the people...punish (econonmically or politically that is of course) these non-democratic leaders
solerboy said:I think Argentina should be expelled not because of their behavoir, but simply because they are not a credible force in the global economy.
bepo said:I repeat a recent post: Argentina economic output does not compare to other countries like Poland. However, you can take Poland out of the map and the actual economy will not take notice. If you take Argentina out of the map, the consequences are vast for everybody. Why? Neither Poland, or Chile or other good economic performers can claim -as Argentina can- to have an enormous impact in the production of strategic non-transferable goods and raw materials. Argentina ranks between 4 and 6 in 8 of the 12 "strategic commodities" listed in the CIA book of facts. There are are only five countries in the world that surpass Argentina in this respect. In the new world configuration (in a world in which the emergence of China has given new leverage to producers of food and raw materials) the non-transferable riches are going to play an enormous role.
el_expatriado said:Argentina is not a serious player on the world stage. Their only interest in foreign policy comes from their domestic political necessities. For this reason alone they should be expelled. They have no serious interest in international issues beyond their own limited domestic considerations.
expatinowncountry said:You seem to know little about the role played by Argentina since the early 1980s in the propagation of democracy in Latin America. In that respect it has done way more like say the US.
el_expatriado said:I was referring to this current administration, which has no interest in international concerns.
