“I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore..”

Translated:
“Syria: Obama’s War.
Once again, the US becomes the protagonist of an international conflict in a complex power play.”

For me, this newspaper headline is just one example of how differently the US is portrayed in Argentine media than in American news outlets, and vice versa. It’s just as common to read articles in The Economist or The New York Times lamenting Argentina’s current political and economic woes, which look very different (and not nearly as grave) when viewed from the ground in Argentina. The stark difference in perspectives coming from both countries has made it an interesting time to be an American citizen living in Buenos Aires. 

From ideological conflicts to disputes over Argentina’s debt restructuring, suffice to say that the current US-Argentina relationship is more tense than it used to be.
