Well if they think we're condescending Brits, there's nowt we can say to change their mind so play the role they'd have us play...

Oh I'm serious - If the Argentinian decision maker's policy is to behave like achild, you talk down to those officials. Though it may be undiplomatic I'm not sure how else you deal with it. When your child starts screaming in the supermarket you don't rant back at them, you calmly put them in the trolly seat and ignore their outbursts. In contrast, they're the enemy (and a second world banana Republic) we have to treat them as such. A verbally aggressive enemy would play into Kirchner's hand, but be unflappable with a slight bit of condescension and it undermines the rhetoric.

You get to try and sneak into the RM barracks and kill them in their sleep; earning you 500 Gamer points and the in-game medal of valour.
The next map is rounding up civilian dissenters.

Have they done anything particularly humorous, like put Queen Botox in, with it or just denied its use?
