Article recounts that rioters, apparently well fed, took mainly TVs and other items of value. The attacks were prepared, with trucks available in some cases to carry off the loot. Author notes that government has coddled the underclass, and counted on their support; but now their pets are turning on them.

Why don’t they just declare Argentina a looting free zone?

This sounds like a country in need of some good guys with AR-15s and high capacity magazines to fend off the bad guys.

Look for the Argies to invade the Falkland Islands soon as a distraction for the disaffected crowds at home.

Where are good fascists like Juan and Evita Peron when you need them?
Madame Kirchner is just a light-weight, Chavez/Castro wannabe clown.
The mob sounds like one that Community Organizer Barack Obama organized in Chicago. Maybe they were outsourced to Argentina to teach them how to flashmob correctly.
That’s what the degreed/licensed political/regulator class does, when it no longer receives its wealth from government debt.

Won't be long before the democrats have to tell their freeloading base it can't afford any more free handouts. That's not going to go over well. They have a "right" to everybody elses stuff, darn it!
I heard Argentina confiscated their version of folks’ IRA’s, 401k, etc.
And I heard they’re planning the same, here.

How do you say “Posse Comitatus” in Argentinian? (oh, wait, it’s Latin, and never mind, they don’t have such restrictions in Utopia)
