    Why did Utrecht served almost 300 years for legitimizing Gibraltar british occupation but it was neglected with the re-claim of Malvinas in late 1700s by the UK? Double british standard in full display?

    Let´s be consistent with Utrecht and deliver the islands.
    Or argue that is an old treaty that has already been trashed by both sides and deliver Gibraltar to Spain.
    Or talk straightforward and assert that the only right that you respect is force conquering resources. Just a matter of will and opportunity.

    Argentina hasn't been able achieve sovereignty over the Falkland Islands in 200 years. Spain hasn't been able to achieve sovereignty over Gibraltar for nearly 300 years. Should tell the Argentines and the Spanish how long Britain, the Falkland Islands and Gibraltar will continue to say, “No”!

    Happy Gibraltar Day.

    Sadly, you make it just a matter of force. In your logic, let´s prepare and wait the needed time.
    Sorry for islanders, I truly appreciate their history as resilient farmers and fishermen.

    The only people to have made the Falklands issue a matter of force is Argentina, whether it was the invasion of 1982 or current policies of confrontation, its always to bully and belittle the Falkland Islanders.

    So its plain, no we don't respect force and your crocodile tears don't impress.
