Argentina is belatedly joining the international cocaine war, both as crusader and victim. The seizure this month of 70 kilos (154 pounds) of semi-refined coca paste and the arrest of more than a dozen people who apparently financed their smuggling with counterfeit Bolivian bank notes is being called the biggest drug bust in Argentine history. The gang may have moved as much as 250 kilos (550 pounds) of cocaine per month through Buenos Aires, police said.
