The English have their faults, but even I'd prefer being under British rule of law as opposed to the squirrelly Argentinian government.

Hey Argentina, if you want the islands back, just go take them.  As you've pointed out, London is 14000 km away.  What are they possibly gonna do?

as long as they choose to stay with the United Kingdom they have my 100% backing."


Otherwise... Fark 'em

Argentina says it inherited ownership of the islands from Spain, arguing that British colonists occupied the islands by force in 1833 and expelled settlers, violating Argentina's territorial integrity.

What's the Spanish word for "irony"?

It's all about the oil, of course.

Is this some sort of Argentinian "right of passage"? Once a generation, they try and usurp the Falklands from the hands of the British?

South America is WEIRD. :/

Yeah, it's not like the Prime Minister would threaten to nuke Buenos Aires right?
 
2013-01-03 05:02:54 PM  
So... we can safely assume there's something going wrong in Argentina that the government really doesn't want its populace worrying about?
 
2013-01-03 05:03:12 PM  
The Falklands is not even close to Argentina. Nor has Argentina actually ever owned them.

I did not know there was oil. I thought this was about fishing rights.

They're a helluva lot closer to Argentina than they are to Great Britain.

Inflation is over 20% and sporadic food riots have occurred.

Oil. Fishing rights. Distractions from domestic issues.

'course they'll never get them back so in practice this is just about distracting their population.

Argentina says it inherited ownership of the islands from Spain, arguing that British colonists occupied the islands by force in 1833 and expelled settlers, violating Argentina's territorial integrity.

Would they accept a settlement whereby these grievously wronged settlers are allowed to return to the island and receive dual citizenship, including the right to vote on the island's ownership?

Oh, all dead. Yes, I see. OK.

100% A British passport is worth fighting over. The Argentinian one isn't worth the rfid chip embedded in it in comparison.

Fun random fact: Newfoundland didn't become part of Canada until 1947 - until then it was a dominion of the UK.

Define Irony: The Argentinians claiming they need to take over land from a neighboring island against the will of the people that live there so that they can exploit the natural resources there. Why?... to STOP colonialism, that's why!

LOL - you can't explain that!

1) The Falklands have been British for longer than Argentina has existed.
2) The residents of the Falklands choose to stay British. Argentina subjugating them against their will ... THAT would be colonialism.
3) Argentina is only asking to negotiate NOW because they took a cheap shot and invaded the Falklands and then got beat down - kind of convenient that they don't want ownership decided by force ... after the fact.

Summary: Argentina has no earthly right to poses the Falklands and are complete hypocrites for even asking. Moreover their leaders are only doing so to distract their people from how miserably pathetic they have been running the country.
