Argentina had just defaulted on more than $100 billion in foreign debt, banks were shuttered, the economy was in ruins and streets were filled with pot-banging protesters whose chants of "throw them all out" would send five presidents packing.  Argentina's government is now celebrating their upcoming Aug. 3, 2012 payoff of ten-year bonds given to people whose savings were confiscated a decade ago, suggesting it is a lesson for European countries now mired in foreign debt.
