46. Sometime during the middle of one of Cameron's wet dreams.

The fact is that no elected Argentine government has, or would, do any such thing; it took a GOP-supported dictatorship to do so (and 34 years ago at that).

Argentina's budget priorities demonstrate this, moreover. They devote only 2% of their annual budget to the military (the $5 bn. security budget, minus gendarmerie and coast guard). This is barely enough for their own domestic vigilance needs and for basic payroll and maintenance. Nothing you can even begin to plan an "invasion" on.

What a world it would be if all countries had a similar policy.
