So that you seem to know more on Argentina than your first cotributions 
made us think of.

The transition from the military to the Alfonsín _regimes_ was not a 
"backward" step for the workers nor for the Argentinean people in 
general. It would be stupid to argue like that, and from what I said 
there is no reason to extract this conclusion.

But the Alfonsín regime was the most pro-imperialist outcome possible 
after the defeat in Malvinas.

It has had good and bad things in its trail.

But it was absolutely anti-Argentinean on Malvinas, and of course on the 
organization of the working class. Suffice it to say that his first 
Minister of Labor was a member of the wing of the Socialist Party that 
had been in government with the Libertadora of 1955.

Alfonsín headed Argentina towards long years of colonial democracy.

The second part is his merit. The first part is his ruin.
