Confronting the Past
As tango lovers we want to love Argentina. But Argentina is a country with many problems and a difficult past, making it a country hard to love unconditionally.
It was therefore good news to hear that now that the official Argentina finally faces the horrors of the dirty war, the last dictator of Argentina, Reynaldo Bignone, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison (also covered by the BBC & NYT). This is possible after the Supreme Court overturned the amnesty laws protecting the former members of the junta in 2005.
