Rob Kall: One last question, you talked about how Argentina has been characterized as a terrorist nation, when really it's one of the most hopeful nations we've seen. Just the other day, just last week, MEK, the group that was characterized as terrorists from Iran, was taken off the terrorist list. Do you have anything to say about that?
Greg Palast: Yeah, well two things. Number one, Argentina's not considered a terrorist state by our government. What they're afraid of is if that if the current government collapses, even though they don't love the current government (the Obama Administration) they're afraid that it will be taken over by terrorists, because if you have a total collapse of Argentina, what Obama and the banks are worried about, especially the banks, Clinton, Obama, and the banks are worried that if you have a collapse of Argentina, that they will obviously stop getting their money; that's number one, their first concern. The second concern is what Loretta Napoleoni calls a "Failed State." Once you have a failed state, you have an opening for maniacs to move in. The main thing is that the bankers want their money, of course. So, right now, Argentina is in good favor with the banks because Argentina is paying them loads. People don't recognize it's a very successful place. I agree with you. If the United States imitated the leadership on economic issues we saw with Argentina and President Nestor, the United States would now be having four percent [4%] unemployment and eight percent [8%]a year growth. And I agree with you, we want to tango here, but we we're not going to tango if the guys who are trying to destroy Argentina take over our government, and that would make things even worse. Now, I've get going, but I would like to say this has been one of the more deeper, more substantive conversations I've had since we issued the book, which is now on the New York Times Best Seller list.
Rob Kall: Did I hear you saying something about the Rob Kall Bottom Up Radio Show and OpEdNews here? (laughs)
Greg Palast: Yes, I think OpEdNews is where you get the real thing. It's not just progressive opinion; it's the hard, cold truth, the real facts. If you don't listen to Bob Kall, if you don't read OpEdNews, then you don't know what the hell is happening in America, you don't know what the hell is happening to you. So this is our weapon of mass instruction. Get on OpEdNews. Read it top to bottom, read it top to bottom, or you just don't know what's going on. This is Greg Palast, author of Billionaires and Ballot Bandit s: How to Steal an Election in Nine Easy Steps, and I'm telling you: don't let them steal your news, because that's how they steal your ballot. This is Greg Palast, reporting for OpEdNews, proudly. Thank you very much.
Rob Kall: Alright, it's been a great interview. Thank you. It's the Rob Kall Bottom Up Radio Show ( WNJC 1360 AM). Thank you. And that's the show.
