#1 This may be the most bizarro world story I've seen in months.

A second rate power having it's navy seized by a 3rd world power over a private investor's complaint about being screwed by said 2nd rate power.

My mind boggles.

#3 I'll bet there are Argies who would trade Cristina & the entire navy for a decent economy, Falklands be damned.

I'd rate this story 2nd after the Somali pirates getting their swag repo'ed. Pirates, navies... I don't know who is doing it, but they must have repo superpowers.
