Why are there going to be elections? ”, Adding that“ between 1930 and 1983 there were 14 military presidents ”and that“ whoever ignores that militarism is getting back on its feet in America does not know what is happening ”.

“When they tell me that, I wanted to find Rossi, I couldn’t do it, I called Cristina, I told her this is happening and she told me: ‘Go immediately to see Rossi’ and on July 18 I went to see him. I told him exactly what I knew and he said: ‘Eduardo I am absolutely convinced that the Forces Armed They are defending the democratic system, but I’m going to find out, ‘”Duhalde said.
