...wait and see, they're going to put the blame on the driver to save the "sistem"
It is very sad and a big tragedy for argentinian people I on behalf of my whole country show condolence and pray,may god give them courage to overcome from this as soon as possible........
There are 2 separate issues here. First, the people (the citizens) of Argentina are intelligent, hardworking, and actually very resourceful. Second, the government of Argentina is one of the most corrupt and disastrous governments to ever have existed. Here are some facts: they opress their own citizens, tax you to death, do nothing to protect the people of their country, crime, drug trafficking, protests, economic disasters every few years, devaluations, lies on a daily basis, constant contamination of natural resources, a system of bribes and blackmailing, many government employees placed in high level positions by family members and friends (nepotism), goverment employees who collect large salaries without ever going to work, dirty broken streets, sidewalks, godforsaken public hospitals, shortages of everything, worthless currency, should I go on? Putting anything in the hands of the government of Argentina is only a licence for them to steal from everyone, destroy everything they touch! They will never do anything for their citizens except exploit and steal from them. Argentina is nothing but a huge FAILURE and until they get rid of their corrupt government the country will continue to be a FAILURE, CORRUPT and a DISASTER that the entire world laughs at! Cristina Kirchner and her children Florencia and Maximo are millionaires, their personal wealth has increased to more than $8o million US dollars while the Kirchners have been in office by selling public lands and keeping the profits, they are CORRUPT people CORRUPT and keep them away from everything they only steal and destroy! And they are responsible for EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE DEATHS ON THE TRAINS!!
I forgot to add that my friend Daniel is Argentinian, but I suppose all of you guessed it giving his extensive knowledge oif Argentine affairs
My most sincere condolences to everyone involved in this tragic accident and their families. All the people anywhere in the world who have a good heart give their condolences and wish all Argentinians that tragedies like this will never happen again.One of my best friends here in Britain, Daniel, told me that tragedies like this one are also the result of "La Decada de la Infamia" (hope my Spanish spelling is correct). He said this is how in Argentina the 1990's are often called. That was the era of president Menem who applied the savage IMF/World Bank "structural adjustments" to Argentina and privatised just everything. My friend said that the privatised railways ended up in the hands of people without scruples who pocket all the profits they make from railways and they simply don't care at all in investing in maintenance or in renewing the railway tracks and carriages, as they expect the Regional or National Government to do this for them. On top of that, he toold me that these bstards receive government subsidies!!! and this money should go towards infrastructure!!! This is something I would recommend Mrs. Fernandez de Kirchner or whoever is in charge to work on as sson as possible, even if he told me that it should be Buenos Aires city government that in the first place should deal with it, as Argentina has got a Federal structure.Here we go, in Britain we have had Thatcher and Blair and now Cameron, in Argentina they had Menem and his decada de la infamia that my friend says has direct responsabilty for all the troubles that Nestor Kirchner (R.I.P.) first and Mrs. Fernandez now are trying to put a remedy to. And he told me, even with your knowledge of Spanish, don't bother reading the on line Argentinian press, most of it is all in the hands of Menem-friendly people, he said watch Telesur and keep following RT.
May all my Argentinian friends find strength and peace through this tragedy... All you are in my prayers..
I'm an argentinian actually living in Italy. Most of these accidents happen because of corruption and mismanagement in my country... Hope this time they do not clean all up by simply blamming the driver.
My heart goes to all those people who were affected in any extent. Couldnt this have been avoided ? How is it possible that a train just crashes head on against the concrete wall ?
My sincere condolences to our Argentinian brothers and sistersMis sinceras condolencias a nuestros hermanos y hermanas argentinas
Judging by the picture, the buffer stops seem to have been too rigid and not absorbed enough of the energy of the train, causing the train itself to crumple too much.There was a similar accident in London a few years back ("Moorgate Disaster") in which it is reckoned that the driver simply failed to stop and approached the end-of-line far too fast, and appeared to show little attempt at slowing the train either. Alas, we shall never know the truth.In another incident ("Cannon Street") a very low speed impact caused carriages to ride up. After this, an "interlock" system was devised, whereby the buffer ends of carriages engage use a toothed meshing system to prevent one carriage from riding up on top of another.Very sad for all involved.

2. The Nazi regime died during WW2
Fact: after WW2 the US took most of Hitler's scientists, including those experimenting on propulsion systems, weapons, sociology and psychology.Fact: few nazist criminals were prosecuted.Fact: the US is home to many prosecuted tyrants (e.g. Yemen's).Fact: Israel is behaving nearly as WW2 Germany.

1. You can't blame America for every accident in today's world2. The Nazi regime died during WW23. The Fauklands still belong to the UK4. This was a accident caused by driver error/mechanical failure
