"Better that people insult me for a year and applaud me for a century, rather than the other way around." So said Argentina's President Carlos Menem last year when he imposed a severe austerity program on his country that mocked the populist traditions of his own Peronista party.Today Mr. Menem is being insulted more than ever, this time for his pardons for the top military leaders who directed the "Dirty War" of the late 1970s and early 1980s. During that dark period, more than 9,000 civilians suspected of leftist and liberal sympathies simply disappeared, the victims of kidnappings, murder and torture by those armed with the authority of the state.

Yesterday in one sentence: I have a scarf that says “Not in the face” in both Brazilian and English; I bet one of the Brazilian players wished they knew how to say it in German to stop that beating yesterday. What's on tap: Argentina vs. Netherlands, 4 p.m., ESPN What you'll see: I'd say not to count on eight goals, but yesterday was supposed to be a tight affair, too, and it basically led to the biggest rout in World Cup history. Argentina and the Netherlands, however, aren't likely coming into this match resigned that it was over for them the way Brazil did. Argentina advanced past Belgium on a cracker from Gonzalo Higuain, and a combination of Higuain, Angel Di Maria, and Ezequiel Lavezzi were active and threatening throughout the match as complements to Lionel Messi.

"The Amazing Race" stays in Argentina this week. If you're helping your kid with his geography homework, then let me give you some facts: Argentina is big enough for an 18-hour bus ride within its borders, big enough for the world's highest vineyards and big enough to hold a lot of cows. This show is better than an encyclopedia. Do kids still use encyclopedias these days?   Hey Border Patrol Agents, quit your whining Art and JJ don't believe in solar energy. The Detour was a choice between assembling a solar oven and using it to boil a pot of water, or wrangling a donkey to carry sticks and clay for a mile.

Yesterday in one sentence : The gap between the Americans' loss and these matches didn't really help anyone's World Cup fever sustain itself, as France and Germany was kind of boring and Brazil won the battle against Colombia but lost the war as Neymar will miss the rest of the tournament with a fractured vertebra. What's on tap : Argentina vs. Belgium, noon, ABC; Netherlands vs. Costa Rica, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see : Hopefully, better matches than yesterday's slugfest in Rio or snoozefest in Fortaleza.

Carlos Menem's re-election as president of Argentina was an affirmation of responsible, unchauvinistic, free-market economic reforms that ended catastrophic inflation, sold off corrupt state companies, invited foreign investment, ended deficits, spurred growth and provided stability and hope.Responsibility turned out to be good politics. Even his leading opponent pledged to retain Menem reforms. Let that be a lesson to the politicians in the U.S. Congress and White House who are tempted to stray from responsibility.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Confidential files made public Feb. 3 by order of President Carlos Menem show what many have long suspected: Argentina offered refuge to some of the world's most wanted Nazi war criminals and protected them for decades.The men felt so safe in Argentina that several, such as Josef Mengele and Josef Franz Schwammberger, shed fake identities and went back to using their real names.When international Nazi hunters closed in and sought help, police stalled repeatedly.

From the moment the U.S. women's field hockey team earned an Olympic berth with a stunning upset of Argentina in the Pan American Games last year, coach Lee Bodimeade has worried his team would pay for it here. The powerhouse Argentine team had not lost a single game in the Pan-Am Games in the previous 25 years. To lose to the United States - a squad that had never beaten them in major competition - was considered a humiliation by both the Argentine players and their rabid fan base.

Yesterday in one sentence : The gaps in the World Cup schedule, as a very smart person pointed out to me, need to be filled with something, even if it's MLS games. It was too weird without soccer this week, and now there are more days without it than with it until the end of the World Cup. What's on tap : France vs. Germany, noon, ESPN2; Brazil vs. Colombia, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see : Sure, the United States has been eliminated for days, but seeing these matchups should only make everyone, even on this most patriotic day of days, understand why the United States is out and these teams are in. France and Germany have been the class of the European teams so far, while Brazil and Colombia (with respect to Argentina, which hasn't looked great)

I've spent the last two weeks in Latin America - where they know something about defaulting on public debts. As part of a bipartisan group of former U.S. ambassadors, I met with business leaders, central bankers, government officials and ordinary citizens. They all asked: what is going on in the U.S. Congress? Is the U.S. really going to default on its debt because of the political game playing? Along with my traveling companions, Republicans as well as Democrats, I repeatedly reassured them that we were confident that cooler heads would prevail and default would be avoided.

BUENOS AIRES -- Argentina has often seemed to be a country, but not a nation.By the beginning of the 1990s, it was on the verge of collapse. Blessed with the kind of natural resources that made the United States a rich country, the 34 million descendants of immigrants who came here from Spain, Italy and Germany never seemed willing or able to come together as "Argentinians."The place was like a bank, a rich one, being robbed by its own people. The country, as sophisticated as any, was basically closed to the rest of the world after the 1950s.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Ever since Argentina's loss to Britain in the Falkland War in 1982, the armed forces have been in decline here, and President Carlos Menem has virtually eliminated any threat of a future military coup through a series of reforms since taking office in 1990.The Menem government has cut military spending in half, reduced the armed forces to 20,000 troops from 100,000, retreated from unprofitable military enterprises and abolished mandatory military service in favor of a professional force.

From: Mendoza, Argentina Price: $16 Serve with: Beef, lamb, pasta Bonarda is an old red wine grape believed to come from Italy's Piedmont region that has flourished in Argentina - mainly as a bulk wine. In the hands of a skilled grower, however, it can show as much complexity as the much better-known malbec. This wine from the excellent Zuccardi firm - the same family behind Santa Julia - is full-bodied, ripe and earthy. It offers flavors of black cherry, plum, pepper, herbs, smoked meat and chocolate.

Argentina -- the place where Hannah was supposed to escape to after Wayne's killing spree. According to her, it represented a "nice, happy home. " But it's also the elusive place Dexter has come to realize everyone has but no one actually gets to. Proof is in tonight's downward spiral. At first, everything is dandy. Hannah and Dexter share a lovely morning and make breakfast together, sharing heavy murder jokes as they dice the vegetables. Hannah takes a moment to ask if their situation is crazy, after she finds out the extra wrinkle that Deb is Dexter's sister (which means Hannah probably can't dispose of Deb as she did the reporter)
