Norfolking Chance: Or California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas are given back to Mexico as they were stolen by colonialist invaders./as per the standards set by Argintena
AntonChigger: The wonderful travels of a turd: Uhm, doesn't anyone remembers that prior to the British colonisation the Falklands were basically inhabited. It has never been Argentinian to begin with, despite some Spanish claims from before Argentine's independence on it.This was my understanding as well, why does Argentina even want them? Do they have valuable resources or something?
Satanic_Hamster: FLMountainMan: Hmmm.....are Argentinians all "the local population" in Argentina? So funny.Similarly, I continue to be amazed at the total pass that white hispanics get on racism, colonialism, and slavery. It's really brilliant1. Find new land in the Americas2. Invade, set up shop and import slaves or exploit the few natives who didn't die from disease or bloodshed3. Profit for centuries off of racism, segregation, and exploitation of darker people.4. Use the wealth acquired thereby to move to America.5. Take advantage of racial preferences designed to remedy the exact injustices you profited off of.6. Scream bloody murder whenever those preferences are threatened.7. Profit./White hispanic, but from Chile, so the screed above doesn't apply to me.Worked with a guy who was a red haired blue eyed "pure" ruling class noble from Guatemala. At least he was until the "peasants" overthrew the government. Neat guy, really neat life story, really racist towards some ethnic groups. Was interesting to hear his perspective on "other" Hispanics. He had some funny rants on how much he hated Americans who considered him to be just another Hispanic due to his name / country of origin.
EngineerAU: Norfolking Chance: It doesn't matter what Argentina wantsIt doesn't matter what Britian wants.All that matters is what the Falkland Islenders want.The sovereignty referendum in a few months time will once and for all settle what the Falkland Islanders want.The islanders are mostly people from Britain and the descendants of those from Britain. Hardly seems fair.to stuff the place full of one nation's people and then say it's up to them to decide. This is obviously a political distraction meant to take some heat off of the Argentine president but that doesn't change the fact that when Britain took over the islands, they removed the local population and stocked it full of their own people.
Flakeloaf: 1. Invade islands.2. Fill them with your own people.3. Have the people vote democratically on which country they want to belong to.
