Argentina Confiscates U.S. Air Force Cargo – WSJ.com

Argentina’s relations with the U.S. worsened sharply Monday as the South American country continued to hold military equipment it confiscated last week from a U.S. Air Force C-17 transport plane sent as part of a training course for local police.

How’s that smart diplomacy working out for you?

  1. You mess with the bull, you get the … well, the cargo, apparently.

    Betcha anything they wouldn’t have tried that with Reagan in office.

  2. I find it very difficult to understand exactly why this administration finds it necessary to antagonize the government of Argentenia. Among the nations of South America the Argentines are the one power that I would particularly want to keep on our side.

    But, then again, this administration seems intent on destroying every valuable alliance that we have built up over two centuries in the name of “Change you can believe in.”

    Me? I believe we need to change administrations as soon as possible.

  3. This is all over being excluded from Obama’s upcoming trip to South America. Am I getting this right? He has to go that far south of the border to find a place he is popular enough in that they are provoking an incident to get his attention?

  4. If there was a joint exercise going on, the supplies had to have been approved by the Argentines. So why confiscate them now?

    Maybe they are doing what China did with our plane, and scouring for intel?
