U.S. vs. Argentina
“Argentine law must be complied with by all, without exception,” stated Hector Timmerman, Foreign Minister of Argentina (Associate Press 18 February 2011). The Argentinian government seized a US Air Force C-17 cargo plane which landed on 10 February with nearly 1,000 cubic feet of military ammunition including sneak guns, GPS devices, and military equipment because the items were not declared on the custom declaration. Perhaps these sophisticated, technological, and powerful military equipment might become in active duty in the
Southern Latin America. Usually, the C-17 carries Special Forces Teams.
