    Background: While political violence in Argentina this week reached a new peak of ferocity, President Maria Estela Peron has been calling optimistically for "peace and love" throughout the country.

    The President was speaking on Friday (21 March) -- addressing an audience in Buenos Aires' Colon Theatre on the occasion o International Women's Year.

    Despite her peace message, she didn't specifically mention the continuing climate of violence in her country. But she did add: "Only in love shall we find the final solution to all the problems that the world is supporting."
    Meantime, Buenos Aires continued anything but peaceful. Within a few hours of the President's speech, eight young men were kidnapped and machine-gunned to death in the biggest single massacre in the current wave of killing. That mass murder brought the total number of killings during a three-day period to 25.
