I believe it will not be long until they will all line up for the republics. That is more than I can say for tho Argentine. There seems to be a very strong political machine at the head of the government there. The country ueems unprepared for war. Their harbor defense system seems poor. They eeem more interested in small things. They seem to be more Interested In preventing anyone from taking a extra cigar or package of cigarettes than safeguarding their ships and shipping.
