    Background: BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

    Air Force Commander in Chief, Basilio Lami Dozo, has warned against any attempted coup in Argentina. Speaking at the August 10 Air Force Day ceremony in buenos Aires, Brigadier Lami Dozo said any attempt to install a government other than democracy would amount to treason. The Air Force chief is due to be replaced on August 17. His successor, Brigadier Jorge Hugues, is known as a tough professional soldier rather than a politician. Brigadier Dozo's retirement, announced a few days previously, came shortly after he issued a statement saying it would be hypocritical to think the ruling junta's current policies would come to an end with the holding of elections. This prompted swift denials from President Reynaldo Bignone and Army Commander Cristino Nicolaides, who have both promised a return to democracy by 1984. Unlike the other two members of the ruling junta, Brigadier Lami Dozo emerged from the Falklands conflict with his reputation intact. He has recently accused military administrations in the past of being responsible for Argentina's severe economic plight.
