LATIN AMERICA: Argentina and pot-banging protests

Linda Nyquist sides with Argentine WAISers: "Ronald Reagan and Jeanne Kirkpatrick as beacons as freedom! Oh, please. They were peddlers of capitalism at any cost. And I do mean any cost. How can anyone defend the disappearance of thousands of people in Argentina at the hands of the government and not feel at least a little squeamish about the policies? Have they no conscience whatsoever? Let Fidel send 1 person to jail and all hell breaks loose, but thousands in Argentina? Somehow this is justifiable? I just don't get it..."
