Argentina confirms high seas boarding of Spanish fleet fishing in Falklands

The Argentine government has stepped up its official blockade policy against the Falkland Islands warning Spanish fishing vessels are operating ‘illegally’ in the South Atlantic, since they have not requested licences from the Argentine government, and controls over those activities will continue.

Spanish vessels docked in the port of Montevideo, after undergoing Argentine ‘frisking’

According to El Faro de Vigo, the Argentine ambassador in Madrid sent to the Vigo based Spanish high seas fishing vessels association, Aetinape, a letter spelling out that controls on Spanish vessels with Falklands’ fishing licences and other flags but belonging to Spanish companies will continue to be controlled because the “Malvinas, Georgias del Sur and Sandwich del Sur Islands and adjoining maritime spaces are integral part of the Argentine territory”.

Thus the Spanish vessels are ‘illegally operating’ in the South Atlantic because they have not requested licences from the Argentine government and it is Argentina’s duty “to put an end to all those illegal fishing activities”.

In the letter to Aetinape, the ambassador also recalls that on several occasions the Spanish government was informed by Buenos Aires of the ‘irregular’ situation, with the purpose of putting an end to ‘illegal fishing’.

In the letter the Argentine authorities trust that negotiations with the UK “will put an end to this ‘colonial situation’ to which the British government has subdued the Malvinas, Georgias del Sur and Sandwich del Sur Islands”.

However Aetinape understands that the Spanish fleet with licences from the Falklands “part of the British Crown” should not suffer the consequences of the disputes between UK and Argentina authorities.

Earlier Aetinape had sent a protest letter to the Argentine ambassador in Madrid based on a detailed document with all Spanish vessels operating in the South Atlantic and which are “constantly intercepted and harassed by Argentine patrol vessels” when they sail to the port of Montevideo.

The situation according to El Faro de Vigo affects an estimated forty fishing vessels and 600 crewmembers, in both cases all from Galicia, with many of these boarding incidents happening in recent months, in high seas, when the vessels abandon Falklands’ fisheries and sail to Montevideo for transhipment of catches.

Well, true to form, you want to execute people carrying out their lawful work.
The Argies do not own the Falklands, the Malvinas do not exist and Argentina needs to come to terms with that.
I wonder how long it will be once the Montrose gets to the Falklands before all the cowardly RG navy go running back to port like they did in 1982?

Nothing changed after 1982 because we won numbnut.

Provide original verifiable evidence of what you say regarding Jewett, and while you're are it, explain why he took 7.5 months to sail from Buenos Aires to the Falkland Islands, long enough to sail from Buenos Aires to London and back, twice over, with weeks to spare, and also explain why he attacked a Portugese Ship in an act of Piracy while he was enroute? Explain why there's no original verifiable record that your own Government can provide to substantiate this from the National Archives in Buenos Aires? You can't and you won't, because what you say didn't take place and no records of it ever taking place exist because it never happenned, you're a sad fcuker to believe in such fairy stories, do try harder, think for yourself for once.

Again I repost,the treaty by uk,1825,since the coward inalambrico reported:
“Looking back we can be proud to say that the United Kingdom was the first European country to recognize Argentina’s independence. In the Ambassador’s Residence, we still keep Woodbine Parrish’s trunk. Parrish served as a British diplomat in Buenos Aires between 1825 and 1832. He signed the Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation with Argentina in February 1825. It was the first treaty signed by the future Argentina Republic with a European country”

BTW: A shame on the brits,for soo little,ruining an otherwise excelent relationship.”Our long bilateral relation is marked as well by a significant British presence in many Argentine provinces, such as Córdoba, Chubut, Santa Fe and Buenos Aires. What is more, there are several long-standing institutions that reflect this relationship: One proof of this is the British Hospital, which was founded in 1844. Another very close example is the Buenos Aires Herald, which was founded by a Scottish immigrant: William Catchcart, 134 years ago.

Well i can safetly say that any boarding of spanish vessels operating in the south atlantic on a Falklands fisheries license would be argentinian impediment to British sovereignty as a result of direct impediment of the falklands fisheries industries and rights under the UN Charter to exploit reasources in there territory without interference, whether in the falklands territory or in international waters, where maritime law applies. Which means the spanish are not fishing illegally.

Therefore such boarding or impediment by Argentina naval vessal would actually under international law be act of war against the falklands and UK, as such we would be entitled to respond with military attacks on argentina. How about 1 well placed cruise missle and 1 further missle for each ship you try to board starting with your electric plants and infastructure. We won't have to worry about targeting any military targets though maybe a sick a few Argentina Naval boats that we come across.

So Argentina bring it on!!

It that sort of escalation that causes the delivery of thermonuclear devices; its a dangerous game these Malvinists wish to play, but what they don't seem to realise is that we don't play at these things, we actually do it as a professional job, and we mean it. Just ask your veterans from 1982.

Your lot invaded in 1832 and were chucked out in 1833, then you signed a Peace Treaty in 1850 which ended your pretensions. Your lot then invented fairy stories and got your Government to actually take this up as a National Cause in the 1930s, fuelled by fascism, and later by Peron, who used it as a means to stay in power.

Your lot then indoctrinated your children with the same crap since 1937, culminating in your invasion in 1982, and they were chucked out the same year.

You've learned nothing and the IQ of your country must be at an all time low, because every other country has grown up since the 1930s, except Argentina, and yet you continue the same indoctrination of children with the same crap from 1937; I've no doubt that one day you'll grow up, but don't expect us to hold your hand and give away our Sovereignty based on a fairy story, it just won't happen.

If you want another fight with us thats fine too, just expect the dead RG soldiers to be buried at sea, along with everyone currently buried at Darwin, at an undisclosed location in the South Atlantic, we won't accept the same shit again, and this time you'll have no-one to visit.

Busy night I see. Strange, as this is only an extension of the previous story which was about the fishing union complaining. The Argentina embassy in Madrid has got around to replying, that all.

There's not actually any indication of any more incidents.

And it is unlikely to be a problem for much longer, provided the spanish vessels can get used to english beer.

Now I know a man whose company has just quoted for a freezing centre on the islands, which even he described as 'huge'. Possible connected to the other story about meat.

So, no need to go to the mainland unless the crew is desperate for something Latin.

And Argentina hasn't got the balls to stop vessels within the Falklands EEZ.

Wind and water - nothing more :-)

Apart from that - there doesn't seem to be much happening. UN's quiet, Cristina is IN and therefore has other things to do. The Islands are still British and ....... all's well with the world :-)

Are you going to get in your rowing boats and row to brighton beach and piss on it in the hope of a nuclear reaction”. Lol

@pirat, Saddam hussain wonder the same thing too, and what happened, we disarmed them with our minsweepers. Plus puting mines in internation waters is illegal and would likely cause countries whos ships are sunk by them to join the UK. And would likely Lead to Nato and other UN members to join the UK side too. and god knows what you are on about in regards to black people in libya, unless you mean the mercenaries for other african countries hired by Gaddafi to kill civilians.

Off course the US, UK and Nato will remove the pakistan nukes if things in pakistan start to get out of control. And trust me pakistan won't have a choice as the US will likely just blow them all up with or without pakistans cooperation.

Ohh and as for gaddafi and the libyan nail in the british coffin, well he must have forgot his nails as he was the one that ended up with the last nail firmly put in his coffin when they buried him you dumbo.

Good reason for the fleets to look at using Brazilian ports in future instead - or even a good reason to develop better port facilities in the Islands.

@63 Pirat, 1 the planes you used in 1982 were not WW2 planes, they were i believe FAAA A-4c Skyhawks or similar models, what you have in service now (A-4AR Fightinghawk), are sat in a hanger unable to fly due to airframe stress resulting in them falling a part when flying. To say they were WW2 planes is just, well frankly laughable LOL.

As for Nuclear Subs considering you have not got a single Nuclear Sub built yet one well placed cruise missle will take care of any current plans of fitting your diesel subs with Nuclear Propulsion, which itself will not carry any nuclear warheads even if you do manage to put nuclear propulsion in it. But we do have Nuclear Subs with Trident missles, maywel one of them over BA would make you think twice about attacking the peaceful falklands islands.

@67 And there are hundreds of islands around the UK and the globe that have no residents on them that belong to the UK. Are you saying because no one lives their then any sovereignty claimed by the UK can be impeded on by other nations. I think you will find that international law does not work like that nor did it work like that in the 1800's either. Just no Kipling, just because we left the falklands, whilst still maintaining sovereignty over them, it did not give you the right to appoint Vernet a governor of the islands. Ohh But argentina didn't appoint Vernet it was the Vice Admiralty of BA that did, i wounder what territorial claim the Vice Admiralty had consider the southern regions at the time particularly patagonia were a sovereign nation and only in 1850's after wiping out much of the south american tribes in patagonia region the and uniting of other sovereign nations with that of BA, did you become the republic of Argentina. Hell even Tierra del Fuego was not part of argentina till 1860-1881 i say 1881 because it was claimed by chile up until the boundary treay of 1881. A treaty you so clearly like to forget about when claiming historical territorial integrity which is clearly a flawed argument, because in 1833 you had no territorial integrity claim over the islands as the nearest the vice Admiralty of BA's territorial borders came to the falkland islands was a good 1000 miles or 2.

Oh and don't give me the we are closer to the islands then UK crap as that doesn't make a difference, as we were there first, we asserted our claim for sovereignty and never recended our claim unlike spain, so no you didn't inherit them from spain either as spain left nothing to you other than the land you won from them.

Argentina is pushing itself, Britain and other countries into a dangerous corner, and ultimately Argentina will be the one that loses. It just all depends on how far Argentina pushes Britain, because lets face reality, Argentina will not win a military or diplomacy battle against a seething Britain. And Britain has finally started to take notice of the Falklands because of Argentina's current stance.

No matter what the keyboard Argentine warriors on Mercopress say, Britain is a world power and is therefore recognised as one by other world powers. And when an weaker force underestimates the stronger force, it can only end badly for the weaker force, lets take 1982 as a fine example of this.

Think, I only see this as a nail in the coffin for Argentina's backward and unjustifiable claim over the Falklands. Dont wake a sleeping giant Argentina.

Support Argentina's claim over the Falklands and relinquish their ability to earn revenue or 2. carry on with the current situation with the Falklands Government that has been in place since the mid 1980s with very little problems and issues, and keep making profits and money.

Im an RG. Sadly, what the pro-British say here is true. BRITAIN is a world power. Argentina is huge in square miles but a tiny drop in the ocean of the military might in the world. (check the SIPRI stats!) Brazil, Uruguay and many other Latam countries will sadly always put their own national interests first before backing up a neighbor. The “divide and exploit” policy established by Lord Palmerston long long ago has rendered UK and the US more than fruitful juicy results. So much so that none of these world powers should bother to resort to use of any weapons to enforce or achieve their objectives. Skillful, surgical, tacful economic, diplomatic moves is all the US and the UK need today to let Latam know who´s boss. Argentina should behave more humbly and take the whole case to the ICJ and show there real good evidence that can surpass the UK in regard to rights over the Malvinas. Another thing, we fellow-RGs should do is revert the policy of Malvinas toward more businesslike and constructive ways. For ma year now, I have been reading the posts here and no one from Argentina has been able to provide powerful evidence enough to defeat the UK case. That the 1930 govt all of a sudden unburied an issue that had been left aside since 1850, and the fact that Argentina lost the islands in 1833, long before it ever became a fully united consitutional country (not until 1853, we had a constitution, and not until 1862, we had a united Argentina, and not till 1884, did we really own the Patagonia! I don´t know who or what to believe any more but it all points in this case toward a UK vicotry in the end. Fellow-RGs of mine, please, show, prove, bring on evidence that Las Malvinas were not lost forever in 1833. I´ll be waiting for both sides the Strong UK and the Weak Argentina of mine to display evidence, especially my fellows Argentines.

To be perfectly honest, i think the reason that the UK has pulled negotiations of the table 100%, is purely because we are sick of the situation. Argentina wants an unconditional, sovereignty transfer of the Falklands. We had tried to hand over the islands before the war in 1982, and our only conditions were the safe regards of the islanders wishes and rights. Even after the war, joint exploration treaties for oil and fish, were thrown back in our faces by the Argentinians. They do not want a peaceful collaboration, and so they will get nothing . It is sad that a country can be so stubborn and also ignorant of peoples rights.

Why don't you take a moment and consider what you are actually saying. What we call “Falklands” and you call “Malvinas” are physically the same islands. Therefore if you use one of your imaginary nukes on the Islands, we would still register it. Whether you call it “Malvinas”, “Falklands” or “Zorg” it will still be the same Islands, and we will still register it the same. Like the A-bomb was still the same whether it fell on “Japan” or “Nippon”. Also, Argentines may take American neutrality as support for their own position, but America has just as much motive to stop Iran from getting a nuclear bomb as we do. Pakistan still gets on sort of OK with us (member of the commonwealth), and we have a nuclear Arsenal as well, which is far more powerful than the Pakistani one or the non-nuclear missiles which you could ever send to us. Why don't you try nuking London? Buenos Aires in ruins might be quite a funny sight.

titboy trust me all natives in the world will be extremely happy that we took back from british murderers what is rightfully our. you might not be happy, but who cares about how it makes you feel when you aren't even a native of this continent, go tell your problems to someone who actually give a damn in your broke continent EU, since when does America have to babysit unwanted EU bastards ?? really can you answer that ??

@106 Problem is the islands were never occupied by the natives of south america, and we never mudered any south american natives. The islands had never been set foot on by any man till the english were the first to land on the islands followed by spanish, french and english settlements. We never recended or claim to sovereignty to the islands either. So please enlighten us as to how the falklands islands belong to the native south americans when they never ever set foot upon them in the whole off man kinds exsitence.

Hows it does your family feel knowing you support the same people that the mudered 95% of there ancesters of all modern day natives. Bet they must be really proud to have a son or brother that is a traitor to his own people.

oh Eu is not a continent its a political group of nations. And its the Euro Zone thats in crisis, and the UK is not part of the Euro Zone as we do not use the Euro Currency.

As for america babysitting unwanted EU bastards, well since when has Canada had to babysit american natives disowned by their only family for being a traitor to his own people.

Why am i involving myself in this, well because am british and so are the islanders, as such i will stand up for them and fight along side them if need be, because unlike you i am loyal to me fellow people and not a traitor like you.

@104 Funny theres no such thing as the American continent. In fact the americas are made up of too continents North American Continent and South American Continent, heres a map for you to enjoy - www.mapsofworld.com/world-continent-map.htm

USA is not a state, it is a republic made from a union of many states. Also the USA is called America, hence why the American/US President always says God Bless America. It is why US citizens are called Americans and why Canadians are called Canadians, both after the name of their Country.

So theirs nothing wrong with my knowlegde of geography, but clearly yours is somewhat way out compared to the reason us, though i accept only having 1 brain cell makes it difficult for you.

As per my girlfriend, well shes sat hear right next to me, laughing her head off at how pathetic and dumb you are, though she was digusted by your offer of sperm (sick bastard, she called you). When she read you comment, she said if you came anywhere near her shed rip your balls off and feed them to the dog. Not only that mate, but my girlfriend is way out of your league anyway and she is fully in support of the falkland islanders. Off course i have great big rottweiler that might like the taste of your balls, but she generally rips them off first and you can get bet your balls i will give her the command to attack if you come anywhere near my girlfriend, and whilst the dogs got your balls i'll pounding your face in, the beutiful thing about it is, i'll get away with as self defence too.

luis vernet 1823-33 was the governor of Islas Malvinas Argentina his home at port luis. wich might still be there if the USA and UK would have faced eachother intead, but as we all know they never never fight alone and as a matter of fact desided as the cowards they are to take it aginst Argentina, illegal fishing in the area has always being an issue, this goes back to the colonial era and today we have a decolonization commite at the UN and we wants all this colonys gone and leave the integrity of the nations to themselves, if the colonist want to be part of UK, we think it's great for UK to accept them as their citizens and stop using them as ponds. if UN didn't care much for thousands of Libyans or Iraqi civilians or even Afgans, do you think they will even bother for 3000 illegal aliens ?? if there is any oil there, Palestine history will seem like childs play, does anyone know what China or Russia will do for a 50% of the oil resources in Islas Malvinas Argentina ?? I'll keep you all posted,
108 you see our girl admited right to your face she wants my balls LOL since you are bringing and giving messages tell her that I only mail my sperm, not my balls, and now according to you your bitch too likes my balls, I was not aware your girl made me that popular at your home, anyone around you trully loyal to you ?? give it a break son, trust me you'll do yourself a favor. by the way I don't fight with a woman a coward and his pet, I told you before I fight man to man, but with you, I might make an exeption, I don't usually pick on retards, they make bad use of scarce human resources, here in America they become jail guards, you my actually have the DNA for a mediocre career, no wonder you girl is soo disperate for good balls, why don't you try growing some for her ?.now in regards to the self defence, yes I agree the justice system in Canada is racist and you might get away with self defence if you had not threatened me with your canadian hunter friend, you can try.

The fact remains, withstanding all the ranting about who owns the Falkland Islands, that Argentina have began to/continue to, harass and bully vessels in waters way outside their territorial limits by hundreds of miles. They are fools if they think these actions this will broker sympathy from anyone and will kill off any remaining peaceful relations with any nation, let alone the UK. It will take a boot up CK's arse to make her and her idiot followers realise that total control by bully boy tactics fail every time, they should have learnt that lesson in 1982, same as all the others in the world who rule by force instead of consent, their souls litter Hell for eternity.

@112 right an wikipidia is a true historical record is when it can be edited at any time by argentinians british alike to suit their purpose. Fact is Louis Vernet only set up a private commercial trading post on the islands and south British permission, he was as surprised as the british when he was appointed governor. the fact it is diescribed as isla malvinas on wiki makes it clear the article has been edited by an argentina, especially when it is written in spanish. But hey heres the english version - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luis_Vernet

Whats particularly intererting is how he acknowledged british sovereingty not once but 2 times and sought british protectin shoud the british return to the islands. Vernet requested a warship from BA, but that was refused and in its placed he was appointed governor instead. The appointment of Vernet was challenged by the British consul in Buenos Aires, who restated the previous British claim to the Islands. In response to the announcement of his appointment as Governor, Vernet stressed to the British that his interests were purely commercial. In otherwords he had no wish to be governor of the islands nor did he acknowledge his appointment as governor, which means he never was governor as he did not acknowledge it.

Now i suggest you read the english one througthly as you might well learn something.

Pirat-Hunter and Malvinero1 are funny. I live in Argentina and they are typical in their beliefs. Try not to take them too serously. Remember, they have been indoctrinated from birth that the “Malvinas are our lands” . Education here is poor at best so it's not their fault they believe everything they are told by their government. Eventually with internet access when they get it to the general populas, they will start to educate themselves and understand world history on a leval that has eluded them until now.

For instance, 3.2% of the entire population (a respectable percentage) attend and complete a degree program at university.“

I looked at similar claims before moving to Argentina and felt comfortable that this was true. unfortunately, I have to say that the General state run schools are wholly inadequate. Yes, the majority leave school being able to read and write. A large percentage do not though. But I gradually noticed a really big lack of general knowledge. People did seem to know very much. I could give lot's of quotes but it would appear that I have an axe to grind...i don't. But eventually I came to the conclusion that Private education was the only way forward. This is OK but still lacking in some areas. Overall very disappointing considering I pay for this. I also chose the top school as i didn't want to ”hold my children up”.
True the universities I understand are quite good. The medical training is longer for example I believe. But overall, dispite this it is quite poor.
The good things are there is a school normaly very close ( a few KM) to all housholds. A legacy from Peron I'm told.
They do stay on in school longer as well.
When my children get older I will be educating them elsewhere though.
Perhaps BA is different. In reality Argentina is BA. BA is Argentina.

121, Compared to other LACs Arg is doing OK but 48% of the population doesn't make it out of high school:
According to World Bank the secondary graduation rate in Argentina is only 52 percent compared to about 80 percent in OECD countries. Argentine survival rates also lag most middle-income countries.

The quality of secondary education in Argentina revealed that 40
percent of secondary graduates did not read and write in accordance with acceptable standards.

My experience has shown if an Arg grew up in middle -rich they are well educated for someone from a LAC but if they are poor they can't read or write and there are lots and lots of poor people there.

SECRET DOCUMENT ON ENGLISH SOVEREIGNTY:
(The British document the S17111 (AS - 5728/311/2) dated September 17, 1946, was conducted by a British official and is in the Foreign Office in Britain. It was produced under the labels of “SECRET” and “CONFIDENTIAL”.)

A British secret document - the S17111 (AS - 5728/311/2) dated September 17, 1946 - severely questioned Davis and Hawkins versions as the “discovery” of the Islands. Out this possibility on the basis of the enormous differences between the descriptions of the two sailors with the actual conditions of the land, coasts and landforms of the islands. On the other hand, the Falklands were completely depopulated. The chronicle of Hawkins does not match the actual appearance of the islands with a great countryside, quite flat and inhabited temperate.
Strong Whale is accepted by historians, but did not take possession of the islands but simply landing for supplies of fresh water and fresh meat (several species of ducks). In 1580, Queen Elizabeth I expressed serious reservations about territorial claims based solely on findings.
1748. I add here the application submitted to King Charles III of England asking for authorization to the Spanish crown to send a British expedition to the South Sea as it was known at the time the South Atlantic, and seek Malvinas. Spain denied the requested authorization claiming its inviolable sovereign rights over them. Great Britain abides by the decision of Spain, in recognition of the legitimate Spanish titles.
1764. French Colonization by Louis Antoine de Bougainville. Above the so-called “first occupation” by the English who comes two years after the arrival of Mc Bride at Puerto de la Cruz of the Falkland establishing a clandestine naval base at Port Egmont on the island Trin

Now that Argentina is in the highly profitable business of fishing fishing boats

Good grief, if this is what you really mean then you are one sick individual. And I'm quite glad we're never going to have anything to do with your education system. Perhaps your education system should forget teaching 'ideology' and teach you where to put an apostrophe instead.
I'm sure Spain doesn't fish in Argentine territory without permission. They've always been very good at getting the right licenses to fish in our waters. However, your fisheries authorities might have a better idea of what was going on if they spent less time worrying about what was going on in Falklands waters and more on managing their own.

I am actually stunned by the stupidity in your comment. Do you really believe what you write or are you a Troll?
“what a load of colional engendered tosh you write” What's colonial about it exactly?
“what is sad about it is that for an intelligent person you appear of the opinion that education is a matter of uncontroversial knowledge.” No. where did ~i say that. But an education system should....well...educate.
NOT Indoctunate. Uncontroversial is one thing but teaching children as young as 4 years old that “ La Malvinas este Nosotros Tierra para siempre” is hardly education is it? Why do they need this baggage at such a young age? Teach the facts.
“it is not.education is about equipping people with knowledge which re-enforces the state and it's ideology”. I see. i did not realise this. thankyou for clearing this up. In the future I well be sure to tell my Argentine friends that independent thought cannot be tolerated unless it fits these parameters.
“and creates people who can engage with society in a useful and lawful way.” How does it do that then?
“it will have similar facts as other states where the knowledge is scientific etc ” Yes. Agreed. Facts are facts.
“but in other areas it will be different reflecting the history,the people and the geography etc”. In principle i agree.
”if the divergence between argentina's educational practice(not withstanding that it's not necessarily the finished article) and your expectations is a problem for you personally.please do not judge another country's educational system with another country's.that is a colonialist practice and reflects that a host country should accommodate non citizens as a priority.” -not at all. But if I speak to people who recently left school and they have trouble understanding that there is a Pacific Ocean as well as an Atlantic Ocean ( yes this actually happened) then I get concerned for my children. If this is “Colonial” then great. to me it means I care about my children's future.

24Sanctions Are Only Part of the Story

Why Iranians Hate the British
by ROBERT FISK

It’s a weird irony that Iranians know the history of Anglo-Persian relations better than the Brits. When the newly installed Ministry of Islamic Guidance asked Harvey Morris, Reuters’ man in post-revolutionary Iran, for a history of his news agency, he asked his London office to send him a biography of Baron von Reuter – and was appalled to discover the founder of the world’s greatest news agency had built Persia’s railways at an immense profit. “How can I show this to the ministry?” he shouted. “It turns out that the Baron was worse than the Shah!” Of which, of course, the ministry was well aware.”

It's easy to teach one view of history, it's harder to teach a neutral objective view. All nations school history texts are colored by national ideology to some degree. Perhaps it is a question of degree and a question of examining historical disputes from all sides without offering a conclusion to offer a balanced account?

- What are you talking about? Argentina's economy will always continue to fail as long as the governments policy's and work laws stay in place. Nothing to do with “Licking the boots of US and UK” Actually Argentina was doing very well for itself when it had very close economic ties with the UK before Peron era I understand. Shame that the good relations we had have been completly overshadowned by the Government of Argentina's use of the Falklands as a political tool (from '82 onwards) to get the populas behind them in some kind of Nationalistic rally. 100 years ago the Argentine Governments didn't behave like this I'm sure and they did well. The country was rich. what happened? This can't be blamed on people “Licking the boots of the US and UK” ( I assume you made a typo). More like licking the the Ar** of the voters (huge percentage not working or working in “Black”). Get them on your side and you can stay in power no matter how incompetent you are. Give them a holiday or two. Or give them a few more pesos a month unemployment benefit. Argentina now has become the “mob” mentality. CFK knows how to “control” the mob with sweetners and nationalistic drum beats. She wins. Argentina loses. If the ecomomy every got to a stage where it produced a middle class then her and her cronies would be out on ther ear. She knows this so she is happy to keep the population poor. Sorry but I see no good future for Argentina in the near future while she is still around.

142. I am sure you don't know what our children are taught in history class. For me it was a looong time ago, but it was pretty well rounded. In my school if you wanted to concentrate on certain areas of the world in more detail you had that option in the advanced classes. I studied Asia and Medieval Europe.
Our curriculum is not like Argentina, we are taught that Fascism is BAD, Communist are our enemies, Socialists drain the economy by stealing from the rich to give to the poor. Taking welfare is bad, giving to charities is good. What are you taught? Peron and whore were good for your country? Probably. It is very sad because the indoctrination has killed the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit in your country. The poor expect to be taken care of from cradle to grave by the state. Every year, more and more poor and they get dumber and dumber each generation. The rich keep their money out of the real economy so it is not stolen and then move the profits to a legitimate country. It is only going to get worse not better.
I wonder what the new land appropriation bill will do next year? Break up the big farms to give it to the poor like Zimbabwe/Venezuela because that worked so well? Scary stuff coming out of CFK now that her time is secured.

Geoff-fair comment as I do want to be understood
Monty69-I will not try to better you at grammar or washing dishes.!;:-)
yankeyboy-Your intelligence let's you down as with all your well-rounded education you only remembered how to be offensive.Personally I feel you might be made of better stuff than that,but then again I suppose some yanks get an education but don't do too well.(don't you feel for their parents)
Existing-in-argentina-Education/indoctrination.Yanquis teach that G Washington founded the USA .which is that E/I.god made the world which is that E/I I could go on.my point is,is that knowledge is not some neutral information,it is loaded with ideology.Today I spoke to a man of 82 years of age and he told me he is still learning.Now you give me the impression that you might not value what he is learning still.Here I am hoping for your response because I'm going somewhere with you.Knowledge/information/memory/interpretation/etc
Geoff again-that was difficult but you requested and I want to be understood thank you xx

It's easy to teach one view of history, it's harder to teach a neutral objective view. All nations school history texts are colored by national ideology to some degree. Perhaps it is a question of degree and a question of examining historical disputes from all sides without offering a conclusion to offer a balanced account?

Well said.

Domingo & Dreaming-in-ARGENTINA. . It is impossible to teach a neutral view of history.My point is that history is an interpretive exercise and you get book like,A History of ++++++ and not The History of +++++.I know that it would not go down to well but view of events change over time not because the event changed but because new evidence is found or because a new ideological perspective nurtures it.

Well living-in-Argentina-for example for the Scottish nationalist the history of the English and scots is different.The emigration of the scots is explained differently.The native American history is different to the yanqui history.The histories of the Palestinian is different from the Israeli.And,briefly,the history of the human race evolves with new fossil discovery.You will find all over the globe people researching local history and making new discoveries even if it is only of local interest.

Yuleno, I think you are quite right. Well said: History is interpretive and each telling is a particular account from a particular viewpoint

I suppose this is why it is often important, especially for school children, to obtain primary and secondary sources from the main viewpoints and then compare and contrast; then for the teacher to ask the students to reflect and consider why they differ. History is the story of politics, but if one is not careful, politicians revises history. Then the individual is free to choose their own interpretation - not that any academic lessons are considered important, when it is play time is the most important time of the day and lessons just fill the gaps!

Perspective is the problemm as I see it.
If an event happened it happened. Why did happen? This is where yo have to be carful with perspective. It happened because of previous events which can be quantified. If there is a statement (written letter, recording etc) that gives what they were thinking to make those decisions then fair enough. Include their “perspective”. Having your own perspective/theory is great for debate. But making your own perspective and then teaching that to others as though it is generaly exepted I don't think is the right approach. This can then get so easily skewed and twisted. Like chinese whispers. History is full of states and leaders twisting history to fit there own agenda. That's why i like the facts so I can make up my own mind and create my own theories without predudice from others.

Hurrah for Living-in-Argentina.we have an agreement that history is written by states.It's called a patriotic view of events,action,etc.I don't think it is appropriate to go further than the principle at present.There is a saying,and only a saying,that winners write the history
So what does yankboy think about the topic.
158 livin' in argentina (#) Dec 03rd, 2011 - 07:06 pm Report abuse
we don't have an agreement at all. history is written by states? your state maybe. History is written by the people that were there. Patriotic? possibly. but this is my point. the Patriotic perspective (or any other perspective) needs to be put aside with priority to the facts at hand. Look at the perspective yes but don't rely on it as a true indicator. I'm not saying that a viewpoint needs to be fixed. With new discoveries the facts can enlarge and therefore your own viewpoint could change.
“History is written by the Victors” is the saying. But history tells us that the true facts come out in the end!

Sorry,
but history is written by 'historians';
very few of whom were actually 'there'.

One of the conspicuous exceptions was Churchill,
an even better historian than the warrior, politician, statesman and fine artist that he also was.

''we have an agreement that history is written by states.It's called a patriotic view of events,action''

You might think this is normal, or even acceptable, but we don't. We don't have an official version of events, and we don't have any set way of teaching history. The history curriculum is framed as a series of questions and teachers and students are free to use whatever sources they can find. We don't teach children what to think.

History can be written by States, but it should rarely be trusted.

History shoud be written by individuals.

Contrary to some opinions I am neither MI5 or any other section of the State. Although I may be in a state :-)

L-in-A has agreed that states,some at least,write history.I don't think reading history and making up your own mind about it is a very solid way to handle history,although that is what happens,and it is difficult not to remain detached and neutral.As far as I'm aware most states provide a syllabus for the teaching of history.They also examine the pupils to ensure that they have understood the subject matter in the way they intended.What they leave out of the syllabus is as revealing as what is in.Is it called censorship or highlighting?
164 Monty69 (#) Dec 04th, 2011 - 12:05 pm Report abuse
I agree with the last bit, and the history syllabus in the UK is under debate just now. Hardly any British history is taught at all and what there is is quite often from the Tudor era. A lot of people think that is the wrong way to go, and I agree with that.

I absolutely do not agree with any idea of a state version of history, sorry. And history exams in the UK and here are designed to test students ability to reason and handle sources. There is no 'intended' way of understanding the subject matter. In fact you are most likely to get the top grades for something original, even controversial, as long as it's well argued.

Falkland Islands history is not examined here. It is studied though, with an emphasis on social and cultural histories, oral histories and gathering and recording primary sources. Students decide for themselves what they want to investigate. Some of the best projects appear in the Falkland Islands Journal.

“ . . most states provide a syllabus for the teaching of history.

Whilst many politicians are graduates - therefore intellectually trained - few politicians are historians. Most politicians attempt to 'create history' and strive to see it recording them and their actions in the best light.

The syllabus in schools is largely a syllabus for learning 'received wisdom', which frequently has a nationalistic perspective (bias).

It is not taught as a discipline of *research*, whereby a person so taught can examine the time-line of thought and the gradual accretion of historical belief (='fact') through examining the body of source material and 'all' points of view.

I was not taught about the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, the Napoleonic wars, and The Armada, from the Italian, French and Spanish perspectives. There were early-taught topics where - it was thought - relatively uncritical learning was sufficient.

But I was taught about the causations of the Great Depression, WWII, and segregation of Europe; all as multi-faceted critical analyses.
Books documenting different perspectives were in short supply and city libraries were invaluable. Original papers and reports were things we knew existed but rarely saw.

Then in the 1990s came THE WORLD-WIDE WEB.
The internet today, with its huge virtual archives accessible with a few key-strokes, make an Alladin's Cave - a heaven - for the enquiring school student, undergraduate, postgraduate, or other interested person.

History and historical research can become as addictive as ?heroin - and participatory. Anybody can become 'a historian' and there is much blurring of the boundaries between the professional and the amateur. But the 'bottom line' is RIGOUR.

The key thing is to avoid using the internet etc as just a reinforcer of one's earlier predjudices - a potent trap when we have entrenched beliefs.

Where are you talking about? I just had a look at the Edexcel GCSE History specification, as it's a while since I had anything to do with this, and I'm just not seeing this at all.
There is also a lot more British history than there used to be so I stand corrected on that. The Falklands conflict is even in there!

I also have to say that I wouldn't even teach the Spanish Armada to 10 year olds without asking them to look critically at it from a Spanish and English perspective.

2 great comments.my main comment in response is that historians,as professionals,are much fewer than historian amateurs.The amateur read a couple of books on a subject and usually(my comment is not meant to be too rigourous) believes that they are fully informed on the subject.They then quote data that they have read.
With local history it's probably less a problem but with international history I think it is extremely difficult not to have a bias.Recognising this is the point I was wishing to make,at the start of this thread

Monty,
I was talking about when *I* studied history, not the present Edexel syllabus.
The Armada is much more easily studied these days as a critical analysis *because* of the internet.

I think I understand what your saying. In Antuquity certainly. Only a very few accounts servive from this period so we get a very narrow viewpoint. What I was thinking was more modern history, say the last 100 years where it has been much easier for personal accounts to servive and be used. I'm thinking of Soldiers in the WW1 trenches, Ann Frank diarys etc. In the case of Ann Frank she was no Historian but her work has been hugly important to Historians.

“One of the conspicuous exceptions was Churchill,
an even better historian than the warrior, politician, statesman and fine artist that he also was”.
I have not read anything by Churchill but I would be interested to know how this historian documented his own history. He commited acts of genocide (famine in WW2 India) and some terrible things (Kenya, South African concentration camps) but is seen today as hero (perspective?). What he did has been documented. What he say's he did is not necesarily correct but gives insight to what he was thinking at the time to make the decisions he did ( for example).

Churchill was no saint & did some terrible things in the name of Empire whilst he was a soldier but he didn't start the camps he was just a soldier at that time. When he did get into power he chose to commit Britain to defeating the Nazis, This led to the great irony of Churchill's life. In resisting the Nazis, he produced some of the richest prose-poetry in defence of freedom and democracy ever written yet it was a cheque he didn't want black or Asian people to cash.

The Famine was a natural disaster, India entered the famine year with substantial food surplus. An official ‘Food Drive’ in Bengal did not result in the release of hoarded stocks. It was believed that fear of the famine & War actually increased hoarding. The other Indian provinces who had a surplus of food refused the government's order to ship it to Bengal fearing that the famine may spread & they refused to believe that Bengal had run out of food thinking that traders were hording huge stockpiles for profit. The Provincial governments, their public servants and some key people in the Indian civil service believed that Bengal had plenty of food, which could be made available with good administration. By the time everyone realized Bengal had no food it was too late. Aid was sent via Australia but had to go part way over land as the japanese had blocked many ports & any aid sent from the west would have arrived too late given the distance & would have had to run the gauntlet of U boats. To blame Churchill is just wrong, The Indian authorities refused to believe a famine was even occurring & even though they had enough food they refused to send it to Bengal & by the time they did it was too late to do anything about it.

This is a whole new area for debate. Churchill saint or sinner? Was he fighting for freedom and democracy or the Britsh Empire? I tend to think the latter on both counts. Nothing wrong with defending your country but let's come clean about who he really was. Like you say he was no saint but many many people seem to think he was.

i do like the quote though about about how he “never went to bed with an ugly woman, but I've woken up with a few”. He was probably fun to be with down the pub!!

Cometh the hour, cometh the man.
Britain (and the rest of the world in reality) was lucky to have Churchill during the war years.
He big mistake after that was to think that the country owed him something and was aghast when he lost the election.
The Labour pratts that follwed him soon f...cked everything up however, just like they do everytime they get elected Blair / Brown and all their loser mates, more of the same pratts.
