Didn't one of the British ships catch fire really badly when it got bombed by an Argentine jet? I was wondering if that was the source of his injury.

His burn pattern around his eyes looks to me like he was looking through something when he got burned. Maybe a tank driver?

Simon Weston, he was badly burned during the Falklands war. He's quite famous in the UK, for charity and lobbying on behalf of soldiers.

But the UK Claiming the Falklands is a lot more like us Claiming the Phillippines or maybe even the Sakhalin Islands.  Yes in the bad old days of unapologetic empire bulding the UK did plant thier flags there, but there is really no geographical or historical claim to the place beyond "because we said so".

In that case, isn;t the current trend of International law and policy that geography is destiny?  If it were all about the Will of the People, they why would Britain have ever given back Hong Kong, whose population really didn;t want to be part of China?

Britain had a contract 99 year lease on Hong Kong with china. They were contractually obliged to give it back.

indeed we were. My uncle stayed on in the Hong Kong police force after it went back to China. Stupidest question ever asked "How are things now that the handover is complete" during a telephone conversation with him. As if he was going to answer anything but "Great".

/mmm totalitarianism!

The Argentinian claim on the Falklands/Malvinas is just as imperialist as Britain's, since there were no indigenous people living there originally. Argentinians' obsession with the islands is not rational, though. It's more like a millennial cult.

The deal is: The people of the Falkland Islands have a referendum and decide which country, or neither, they wish to be a part of. How's that sound?
 
2013-01-04 04:38:43 PM  
Yeah. Unless they discover vast oil reserves around the islands, I really can't see possession of them making much of a difference to either country. As Jorge Luis Borges described the Falklands war, it's two bald men fighting over a comb.

(Obviously it would make a difference for the people who live there now, though.)

Because they had a treaty with the Chinese saying that they would. A treaty they signed when they first started governing Hong Kong. The people in Hong Kong have had a 100 years to get ready for the change over; that's plenty of time to move if you didn't want to be under Chinese rule.

There will be no second war. Not only cannot Argentina get to the Falklands (as in project military force that far), but the Brits now have a real military force there. (Link)

No no. Top Fark Internet Military Armchair Brigade Members have assured us that if Argentina uses their entire air force and sneaks all their army over on fishing boats they can take over the islands without even firing a shot. England has NO CHANCE to hold the islands.

If Argentina want to nullify all territorial changes since 1833, they can start by handing over Terra del Fuego to the indigenous population.

Hmm, I don't think they've thought that clever plan through. A Mexican takeover of California would likely end up as a Californian takeover of Mexico. California's GDP is 1.9 Trillion; Mexico is only 1.2.

Yes, if virtually uninterrupted habitation by people that consider themselves British for 250 years with no natives to make a counter claim isn't enough to have a claim, then non-native Australians better pack their bags, and the USA better start organizing handing itself over to either Britain or native americans, depending on when you start your "ownership" clock back in history, and at least 100 other countries will similarly be uprooting most of the population.

The US has an perpetual lease for Guantánamo Bay. As long as we pay the rent (about $4k a year) we get to stay.
