Argentina blasts PM Cameron ‘profound error’ of glorifying colonialism

The Argentine Foreign Ministry strongly rebuked comments made by UK Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday, the thirtieth anniversary of the start of the Malvinas War and blasted the UK’s “persistent glorification of colonialism”.

PM Cameron the target of the latest Foreign Affairs ministry communiqué

PM Cameron yesterday labelled Argentina’s invasion of the Falkland Islands, “a profound wrong.”

A Tuesday communiqué from the Argentine Foreign Ministry used those very words to affirm that “the profound error” was precisely “persisting with colonialism” which “constructs the wellbeing of its people on foundations of military and cultural subjugation, and the plundering of the natural resources belonging to other peoples.”

“That is the story of the United Kingdom, and millions of human beings can give testimony to the fact, still today,” went on the Foreign Ministry’s statement.

On Monday during the South Atlantic conflict commemorations in the UK, Cameron stated that Britons were “rightly proud of the role Britain played in righting a profound wrong,” referring to the Argentine invasion of the Islands.

In the same statements, the UK PM further stated that, “thirty years ago today the people of the Falkland Islands suffered an act of aggression that sought to rob them of their freedom and their way of life.”

The Argentine Foreign Ministry’s communiqué continued to turn Cameron’s words against him, and stated that, “A profound error was expelling the Argentine population from the Malvinas Islands in 1833, violating rights that the Prime Minister says he defends, and implanting, under a forced colonialist plan a British population”.

Another “profound error” is to continue ignoring the territorial integrity of a sovereign country.

What must be done is to correct that “profound error” and put an end to colonial enclaves. The peoples of the world clamour to leave behind the curse of colonialism is countered by military force and the display of nuclear arms from the UK, continues the aggressive communiqué.

It is a “profound error” the persistent conduct of the UK to ignore the multiple UN resolutions and at the same time dangerously debilitating that organization and its mandates to resolve peacefully the conflicts among nations.

“It is also surprising the praise that David Cameron makes of a war adventure that started in 1833 with the invasion of a part of Argentina”. The release adds that “this can only be expected from dictatorships and empires. Democracies such as Argentina’s enshrine peace, negotiations, International law and diplomacy”.

Last but not least “we invite the Primer Minister to reflect on these principles and to abandon any temptation to use this just Argentine cause for an ephemeral political benefit”.

“It is a “profound error” the persistent conduct of the UK to ignore the multiple UN resolutions and at the same time dangerously debilitating that organization and its mandates to resolve peacefully the conflicts among nations.”

I think we all know that it's Argentina who ignored UNSCR 502 & 505 and Nestor Kirchener who unilaterally walked out of the negotiations that their claimed GA resolutions refer to. The UK is looking rosy when it comes to the UN, whereas Argentina is a delinquent.

”The release adds that “this can only be expected from dictatorships and empires. Democracies such as Argentina’s enshrine peace, negotiations, International law and diplomacy”

It's not a democracy if you rule by decree and you get your son's hitler youth to pay people out of the country's exchequer to vote for your mum.

a) enshrine peace - invades the falklands in 1982, celebrates the war every year.
b) negotiations - Nestor Kirchener walked out of negotiations.
c) International law and diplomacy - Argentina claims UN ICJ and ICA have no jurisdiction over them, international law includes uti posseditis.

British politeness and understatement are not qualities that are universally understood or respected. In most countries, when a person is accused of a crime and does not deny it, the presumption is that the charge is correct. We should challenge Argentina - loudly -each time Mrs. Kirchner or her Foreign Ministry use terms like “recover” the islands (Argentina cannot “recover” what was never hers) or talks about Britain ”expelling the Argentine population (...) in 1833”, an event which never happened.

It's rather amusing that they complain about the theft of natural resources when Argentina can't even exploit the hydrocarbons within it's own landmass. Who else has huge reserves and declining output? It puts Argentina on a par with Iran and yet nobody is threatening Argentina with sanctions or war - though they'll probably claim the UK is.

From Getting It Right: the real history of the Falklands/Malvinas, page 19:
“In his opening address to the Argentine seminar at the London School of Economics on 3 December 2007, Ambassador Mirré repeated what is probably the most serious distortion in Argentine accounts – the idea that Britain expelled an Argentine population from the Falklands in 1833. Argentina has claimed this repeatedly at the United Nations. 5 But it is not true.”

Just as one little example of the Argentinian “we're so peaceful” bullshit and their wackjob status as a country, they have an image on the 100-peso note called the “Conquest of the Desert” - a lovely picture of Argentine officers celebrating after butchering the native population. It's sort of the equivalent of the Germans deciding to put pictures of gas chambers on their banknotes.

@16. What nonsense. Butchery is what the native indians perpetrated. It gets tiring reading ignorant comments from people who have never even bothered to read up on the subject.

After Argentina's independence from Spain, the Argentine government had signed several peace agreements and engaged in military campaigns with the natives to contain their aggression of Buenos Aires.

The natives took advantage of Argentinas internal war first (between the Argentine Confederacy and Buenos Aires) later against Paraguay to launch vicious attacks towards Buenos Aires, terrorizing farmers and blackmailing them for cattle, horses and food. The Argentine government plan (under Avellaneda) was to settle the desert and not to exterminate the indians.

Yet the continuous attacks prompted by the natives to farms and towns prompted the Conquest of the Desert campaign when Julio A Roca substituted Alsina as war minister.

By that time, Argentina considered the indians as a threat, not as expendable beings that were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It was a bloody war, not some butchery and its quite naive of you to compare this to “concentration camps”.

@17. I do not know who malem is. And besides, not all tribes raided and attacked towns and farms. In fact, some tribes were even allied to the Argentine government.

But portraying all the natives as peaceful loving and ultimately victims of the Argentine army is just naive and stupid.

The Desert campaign had more to do with stopping the constant attacks than to expand the boarders - which initially they were intended to be expanded by settling population further away from Buenos Aires and cooperating with the natives.

The mentality of the Argentineans then - likewise most of the american nations - was very different from the Spanish mentality. They had escaped despotism and came with the ideas of liberty, democracy, many of them were masons (particularly early argentine politicians and military commanders).

Trying to compare what the Spanish army did to what was done in the aftermath by the independent nations is pure ignorance.

So Argentina never wanted a war when it invaded a foreign island and engaged its defense force with every weapon at its disposal?

You tried to take a island by force on the hope there would be no retaliation and when the UK dispatched a task force which it was morally obligated to do to protect its citizens you cowards faces a real fight and surrendered.

If all the settlers were removed, then who were the Gauchos living there in 1834 when Charles Darwin arrived there? You people really don't research at all, do you?
The prison population was removed, and the military garrison forced to leave, however the normal civilians were allowed to stay, some left, some stayed, names are recorded and it's well documented. If you have first-hand evidence of ALL settlers being removed then please provide it, otherwise just shut the heck up.

@12 1) You did not recover the islands, you illegally seized them.
2) You illegally invaded and seized the islands by force of arms - i.e. WAR

Thatcher dispatched the navy because British territory had been illegally invaded by an aggressive foreign power with an over-inflated view of its importance and power on the world stage. The islands had to be recovered and Argentina had to be made to back down. The ARA Belgrano was sailing towards the Royal Navy. It was well armed and a threat to our task force. The ship sailed into the total exclusion zone, a region which they had been warned that they could not go into and that they would be sunk if they did. They were aware of the risk but they did it anyway and paid the price. IT WAS WAR. In war people die. If you didn't want to lose any troops then you shouldn't have started a war. You really are deluded. The people's lives would not have gone back to normal - they hate the Argentines, and everything about their colonialist attempts to annex what doesn't belong to them. When British troops marched into Stanley, the people cheered because their freedom had returned and the fascist occupation was over. Today, the islanders want nothing to do with you Argentines. The rest of South America sure, but not you - they distrust you with very good reason. When British aircraft, which are stationed on the islands to protect them from Argentine aggression perform exercises, the people on the islands often complain that they don't fly low enough. They want them to fly lower so they can hear the sound of their jet engines - they call it the sound of freedom.

Cameron was referring to the illegal invasion of the Falkland Islands by Argentina in 1982 contrary to the UN Charter, which prevails in law, and also Argentina's failure to obey UN Security Council resolution 502, which is legally binding on Argentina

The facts are that the British had twice provided formal diplomatic protest against the Province of Buenos Aires Revolutionary Authorities plan to install a Military & Civil command on the Falkland Islands

The facts are that the prior commercial settlements by Vernet were permitted under British consent, which Vernet explicitly sought & obtained

The facts are that within two months of their arrival the Argentine garrison had rebelled against their commander, murdered him & abandoned their posts. The deserters were captured by the British a& subsequently executed by the Buenos Aires authorities for their crimes.

The facts are that British and American sealers & whalers had continuously used the Falkland Islands since the first British settlement

The facts are the British asked all civilians to stay not go.The civilian population in 1833 was a mixture of nationalities, it was not expelled & it remained except for four civilians who chose to return to Buenos Aires.

The facts are that Spain accepted the British colony in the Falkland Islands in 1771.

The facts are that Spain retained its claim of the Falkland Islands after its evacuation of Buenos Aires

The facts are that Britain had bilaterally agreed with Spain that if any third party took Spanish territory in South America, then British could resume their prior outposts in South America

The facts are that in 1833 the Argentine frontier was more than 1500km distance from the Falkland Islands

The facts are that Argentina expanded its territory by force after 1833 to its current borders

The fact is that in 1850 all existing differences between Argentina and Great Britain were settled by treaty, ratified by the Argentine Congress and the British Parliament

Indeed. Some of the current islanders who want to remain British are actually direct descendants of those settlers who chose to stay after the UK reasserted its sovereignty.

Most of the settlers that Argentina claims as their own in fact came directly from Europe, rather than via South America.

Vernet himself was a German and his second in command was a British officer.

Argentine revisionism never stands up to scrutiny .. nor is it ever likely to as long as the batty fascist hag is in charge and stuffing her Swiss bank accounts whilst her people starve.

And as i said, Buenos Aires had bigger problems to deal with than to “kill off indians”. After its independence in 1816 Argentina was very much divided between the Confederacy and Buenos Aires - the Unionists and the Federalists. Endless battles took place between both sides during the 19th century. Add to that the war with Paraguay.

Whatever they were called Troneas, malones or pueblos originarios that does not change the fact that you, the descendants of Spanish colonists, had invaded their territory, you stole their land and resources and you were killed most of the them off in aggressive campaigns of colonial subjugation. It was nothing short of genocide. If they fought back, to defend themselves and their territory, thenthey were perfectly entitled to do so!

It is also a fact that the vast majority of what is now Argentina was subjugated and stolen in the late 1870s and 1880s, which is more than 60 years AFTER independence from Spain. You were still killing inconvenient natives in the 1920s (Napalpi), so really your history is no better than that of the British.

It looks like you are the one who needs to bone up a bit on Argentine history.

What you have just said about the civil wars between the unitarios and the federales just proves that there was no such thing as “Argentina” in 1833. Just a bunch of fighting provinces and caudillos. Buenos Aires was not even part of the UP at that point. So how Argentina can claim the Falklands because Buenos Aires sent a garrison there in late 1832 is, frankly, a mystery.

I am a Falkland Islander, not an 'artificial implant', Not a squid millionaire, live in the Islands full time and no second home overseas.
The Argentine fake 1833 is doing you no favours. Research the documented history then start living in the present not the past.
Argentina systematically slaughtered the native population well into the 1920s. The going rate was $1 per head. Am surprised it never occurred to you that they were hostile because they didn't want to be subjugated by a colonialist oppressor.
Don't kid yourselfthat the Argentine people didn't want war in 1982. We've all seen the tv footage in the Plaza de Mayor. Speaking to two Argentine tourists a few days ago, they told me that in B.A. in early March 82 they were issued with air raid instructions because it was anticipated that UK would attack mainland Argentina after the invasion of the Falklands.
You fool yourself if you believe Falkland Islanders lives would have gone back to normal within a few days. Argentina wanted war and Argentine forces treated the Islanders despicably eg serious human rights violations, mock firing squads, looting, I could write avery long list for you.
The Falklands and UK economy are just fine thank you. The British press carries very little coverage of Argentina's frenzied outpouring because its not very interesting to them or the rest of the world. Argentina is just painting a picture of itself as a crazed third world dictatorship. Burni g flags and effigies puts you right up there with the worst of them.

46 honoria : Troneas, has done well.

The specificity of the Malvinas question is that the United Kingdom occupied the islands by force in 1833, expelled the original population and did not allow their return, thus violating the territorial integrity of Argentina. Therefore, the possibility is to apply the principle of self-determination, as its exercise by the inhabitants of the islands would cause the “disruption of national unity and territorial integrity” of Argentina. In this regard it should be noted that resolution 1514 (XV) “Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples” in the sixth paragraph states that “Any attempt aimed at partial or total disruption of national unity and territorial integrity of a country is incompatible with the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter. ”In the Malvinas Question General Assembly of the United Nations included this doctrine - the principle of territorial integrity taking into account the interests and NOT the wishes of the people of the islands - in its resolution 2065 (XX) of 1965, ratified by later resolutions 1973 (3160, XXVIII) 1976 (31/49), 1982 (37/9), 1983 (38/12) , 1984 (39/6), 1985 (40/21), 1986 (41/40), 1987 (42/19) and 1988 (43/25). They all declare the existence of a sovereignty dispute and reaffirm the invitation made ​​in resolution 2065 (XX) Parties (Argentina and the United Kingdom).

@49 Raul But your forgetting one key point. The Islands were owned by the UK BEFORE 1833, and the garrison on the islands at that time, were there illegally. they had also murdered the British flag bearer on the islands. Only the soldiers were removed, but the civilians were invited to stay. The British were there in 1766 i believe, before Argentina had any 'territorial integrity', as you were still a colony. Therefore you were the first and have been the only aggressive nation in the history of the Territorial dispute between Argentina and the UK.

Your country has fed you lies and you search desperately for some rightfulness in your countries actions over its short history. It is a sad fact that there are none that match the UKs, Christ we even averted a war between Argentina and Chile over the Beagle Channel Islands and our success in 1982 rid you of a wretched Junta. Your history is lies (some maybe unintentional) and your misplaced passion for the Falklands. So now you two juveniles, when you've grown up, perhaps you might study the mindset of a Briton, we do the right thing, help where we can, win (with our allies) the odd world war. Whereas Argentina builds homes for holidaying Nazi war criminals, breaks conventions, embargoes tiny islands, breaks trade treaties, bans books.. oh and cheats at football.

I do not forget. Petenecen Islands to Argentina.

Unfortunately, their arguments are false, as the committee of the UN decolonization ruling in favor of Argentina and against England.
The Committee on Decolonization United Nations, which is the most appropriate body for interpreting and understanding the concepts of colonialism and imperialism, such as Gibraltar, Falklands, Belize and other similar cases, their historical contexts and social processes, and already has extensively studied and reviewed and compared the arguments of both Argentine and the United Kingdom and finally failed for Argentina because his arguments are true because it is a sovereignty dispute. NO self-determination. Just note that in the Malvinas Question General Assembly of the United Nations included this doctrine - the principle of territorial integrity taking into account the interests and NOT the wishes of the population of the islands - in its resolution 2065 (XX ) of 1965, ratified by later resolutions 1973 (3160, XXVIII) 1976 (31/49), 1982 (37/9), 1983 (38/12), 1984 (39/6), 1985 (40/21) , 1986 (41/40), 1987 (42/19) and 1988 (43/25). They all declare the existence of a sovereignty dispute as resolution 2065 (XX) Parties (Argentina and the United Kingdom).
In addition, every year, the Committee finds UN decolonization resolution using the criteria of Resolution 2065 of 1965, clearly states that the sovereignty dispute. NO self-determination
The International Court of Justice is based on their judgments of the committee of the UN decolonization. Remember that the international court of justice and decolonization committee of United Nations is supranational. Both have a lot of international prestige and complement each other.

The fact is that the Germans have come to terms with their 'wrongs' and the Argentinians have not. It is now time for Argentina to follow Germany's lead and accept that their territorial desires to occupy the Falklands are just as wrong as Germany's to occupy eastern Europe.

Diary, 10th to 17th March 1833, HMS Beagle: “Captain Fitzroy’s Journal:
During the month we remained in Berkeley Sound, I had much trouble with the crews of whaling or small sealing vessels, as well as with the settlers, who all seemed to fancy that because the British flag was re-hoisted on the Falklands, they were at liberty to do what they pleased with Mr. Vernet's private property, as well as with the wild cattle and horses. The gauchos wished to leave the place, and return to the Plata, but as they were the only useful labourers on the islands, in fact, the only people on whom any dependence could be placed for a regular supply of fresh beef, I interested myself as much as possible to induce them to remain, and with partial success, for seven stayed out of twelve.”

And also you've failed to address my point, by simply repeating yours and saying that the argument' is false' . Why is it false ?
Its recorded historically my many different people and countries. Argentina settled AFTER the British and MURDERED the British flag bearer. They were trying to satisfy their own colonial ideas. the people on the islands are the only people now in the world that can be considered the natives of the island. The UN does not back Argentina BUT backs the need for negotiations. As the Argentines have written it into their constitution that there can be no negotiations on the sovereignty of the islands and that the islands indisputably belong to them, they are stupidly contradicting themselves when calling for negotiations. May i add, aswell, that the islands would most likely have been yours by now, if you hadn't gone to war, and had tried to 'woo' the islanders. Before the war Britain actually considered the islands as a political landmine, and would have seen them pass over to you if they could. But true to their word, they didn't hand them over because the islanders didn't wish to become Argentine. the invasion only strengthened the islanders resolve to remain British and the British governments will to protect that desire, and human born right. I think it is safe to say that after the invasion, any diplomatic means of getting the islands have well and truly sunk along with the like of the Belgrano, HMS Coventry and HMS Sheffield ...

Quite apart from all the other points that have been made, you make the mistake of assuming that in 1833 international law was as it is now. It most definitely was not: the right of conquest was part of international law at that time, and events must be assessed against the state of te law at that time. So, even if you were correct as regards the events in 1833 (which you are not), the UK could have gained good title by right of conquest under international law at that time. There are many other examples of this: just look at the number of wars in the nineteenth century which resulted in boundary changes. In fact, Argentina benefitted from quite a few. Are you saying that all these territories should be handed back to their previous owners? And if your answer is to say that subsequent treaties ratified these boundary changes, how do you account for the 1850 Convention for the Settlement of Differences?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but you are full of piss and wind. The UN C24 has never found in favour of Argentina or Argentine sovereignty. If they had, you would be able to show us a link to the documentation where they have, but the simple fact remains that no such documentation exists.

The most the UN C24 has ever done is call for negotiations .. but they haven't even called for those negotiations to deal with sovereignty (the pre-condition that Argentina itself sets for negotiating like the adults that they aren't).

The UN hasn't supported Argentina. The UN C24 hasn't supported Argentina. The Organization of American States hasn't supported Argentina and even the Ibero-American Summit hasn't supported Argentina.

The evidence is very clear that no credible international body has supported Argentina and far more countries (over half the countries in the world in fact) officially support continued British sovereignty and the islands right to self-determination ... because that right to self-determination is fundamental to the UN charter.

So, dream on, buster .. because your bluster is so busted.

”Noting the existence of a dispute between the Governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland concerning sovereignty over the said Islands,

1. Invites the Governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to proceed without delay with the negotiations recommended by the Special Committee on the Situation with regard to the Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples with a view to finding a peaceful solution to the problem, bearing in mind the provisions and objectives of the Charter of the United Nations and of General Assembly resolution 1514 (XV) and the interests of the population of the Falkland Islands (Malvinas);

2. Requests the two Governments to report to the Special Committee and to the General Assembly at its twenty-first session on the results of the negotiations.“

And a remainder of small provinces and islands wished to remain British, and we did not deny them that desire, or right. The Falklands, a territory that was owned by Britain before argentina, and are in that group.It is Argentina who now want to colonise the island, take it by force, or take it without considering the islanders, the people. You are the imperialists now. The difference between the UK and Argentina : When we ran an owned an empire, we were damn good at it. Argentina ?

If anything these invasions helped your colony achieve a sense of Independence, and they are regarded as a key contribution to Argentine Independence. The Falklands is not a colony.

Colony - A region politically controlled by a distant country; a dependency.

The Falklands are fully independent. Would you like to know the only dependency they require on another county, Britain ? Defence. Defence from you. If Argentina was not such an aggressive neighbour there would be no dependency on this. Therefore you are wrong in your argument. The Falklands are not a colony, but a British over-seas Self-Governing Territory. Im sorry that its not an Argentinian dominated and controlled colony like you wish it to be.........

As for the Libya ? We helped liberate the people, look it up, read a newspaper, you might learn something. Afghanistan ? they were controlled by terrorists that killed many innocents all over the world. Most of the populace there are grateful for our aid, they are starting to get their country back. And we're not in IRAN, i think you may be a bit confused. I suggest you revise most of your points and your facts, as they appear to be lacking truth........

@94 Raul

Oh for God's sake, you really are flogging a dead horse with your vacuous drivel .. and all you have done is post the same 2065 that I have already posted.

The territorial integrity argument relies on an interpretation (advanced ONLY by Argentina and Spain) of Paragraph 6 of UN Resolution 1514(XV) which the General Assembly of the United Nations has very specifically dismissed.

Contrary to the interpretation that Argentina puts on Paragraph 6 of UN1514, the UN has stated that the very clear original purpose of Paragraph 6 was “to ensure that acts of self-determination occur within the established boundaries of colonies, rather than within sub-regions” .. in other words, self-determination has to be applied to the whole of the Falkland Islands.

Not only that, but the word 'attempt' in “Any attempt aimed at the partial or total disruption of the national unity and the territorial integrity of a country is incompatible with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations” denotes future action … not past actions and can't therefore be used as the illiterate Argentinians are trying to use it: namely to seek redress for past action.

I know it is tragically inconvenient to Argentina's case, but in 2008 the United Nations General Assembly flatly rejected Argentina's claim that disputed sovereignty trumps the right to self-determination .. and by a majority vote (61 in favour, 40 against and 47 abstentions) it even went so far as to specifically reaffirm that the right to self-determination was one of the Organization’s fundamental precepts and overrode ALL other considerations and changed the operative Paragraph 2 of the report of the Special Committee on Decolonization (document A/63/23) on Remaining Non-Self-Governing Territories.

Sorry, dude, but Argentina's argument is in tatters and has been flatly rejected by the Sixty-third General Assembly of the United Nations; but perhaps Argentina is just too illiterate to comprehend that fact.

Why consider the arguments of the Argentine historians? I'm happy with my British sovereignty and wants to keep it that way t
Not only Argentine historians, but also expressing that British sovereignty is Argentina. Just read Web pages specializing in the area and you will find.

The sovereignty dispute exists only in the minds of Argentines.

Completely wrong. Just observe the resolutions of international bodies such as the Decolonization Committee of the UN. Read the resolution 2065 (XX) of 1965, ratified by later resolutions 1973 (3160, XXVIII) 1976 (31/49), 1982 (37/9), 1983 (38/12), 1984 (39/6) 1985 (40/21), 1986 (41/40), 1987 (42/19) and 1988 (43/25). They all declare the existence of a sovereignty dispute. No self-determination.

His fake version of 1833 is that the phone exactly - false.

What, 1833 is completely true. See other historical sources and understand the sovereignty dispute.
There are misconceptions. Ask yourself yourself because there is a committee of UN decolonization? Of the 16 cases of colonialism and imperialism, 10 are in the UK. Is this conclusion does not tell anything about it?

And if Argentina is so determined to solve the legal matter, why inflict collective punishment such as blocking of the Falkland Islands? It is the action of a civilized country, you want a standard relate to us?

British Islanders are not a country. Not a lock. Latin American solidarity that is understood to be a colony usurped territory Argentinos Argentinos justified claims. The British islanders have to bet on dialogue and not violence historic UK.

@100 This Raul chap is an Argtard of the highest order. Resolution 2065 is from 1965, so it's now about 50 years old. It became null and voided when Argentina unilaterally decided to make negotiations over the islands a military conflict. They then ignore the demands of the UN (UNSCR 502 & 505). Talking about a GA Resolution from before 1982, especially one that is 50 years (Yes, 50 years old) just outlines how utterly defective their argument. Pretty much all the resolutions after 1982 give no mention of the Falklands directly, because under international law the negotiations are over, the war was fought and argentina decisively lost. You cannot decide to fight with axes and then complain when someone chops off your head.

Either way, under the principle of Uti Posseditis the islands belonged to the UK, and the UK decided to give the islands self-governance in line with UN demands.

The UK was quite nice and discussed fish and oil resources with Argentina, but their utterly sh!t president (yes, more sh!t than the current one) decided to have a tantrum and unilaterally ended negotiations, against the wishes of the UN. The UK and FIG then decided to use the resources with Argentina in absentia. That is also legal under international law.

Anyone who discusses Resolution 2065 as if it's still valid is just a furking moron and a barefaced liar. Clearly Raul is guilty of all this.

a) you won't speak to us because we are pirates/squatters/non-people who aren't entitled to an opinion;
b) you will only accept one outcome;

@106 I agree, they simply cannot be trusted.

Seriously ladies... the last UN GA Resolution that over-ruled all the others was 1988 (43/25). It gives absolutely no mention of transfer of sovereignty in any way and simply talks about resolving differences in a manner that is compatible with the UN Charter, i.e. self-determination.

”Reiterates its request to the Governments of Argentina and the
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to initiate negotiations
with a view to finding the means to resolve peacefully and definitively the
problems pending between both countries, including all aspects on the future
of the Falkland Islands (Malvinas), in accordance with the Charter of the
United Nations;”

So considering all the other resolutions are over-ruled by this last resolution, it's nullified anyways because Nestor Kirchener decided to unilaterally end UN-promoted negotiations, and walked out.

It's perfectly acceptable that the UK&FIG in Argentina's absence choose their own path for the future of the Islands and their resources, provided that it is in line with the charter of the UN.

UN GA Resolution 1514(XV) covers the case of the Falklands Islands.

The Falkland Islands were listed as a non-self-governing territory for the purposes of resolution 1514(XV).

Argentina voted for resolution 1514(XV).

Resolution 1514(XV) applies to non-self-governing territories.

Resolution 1514(XV) guarantees the territorial integrity of non-self-governing territories.

Argentina is not listed as a non-self-governing territory for the purposes of resolution 1514(XV).

Ergo, the territorial integrity of the Falkland Islands is guaranteed by resolution 1514(XV) because the Falkland Islands are listed as a non-self-governing territory for the purposes of resolution 1514(XV).

Ergo, resolution 1514(XV) does not apply the principle of territorial integrity to Argentina because Argentina is not listed as a non-self-governing territory for the purposes of resolution 1514(XV).

For these reasons, the Argentine argument that resolution 1514(XV) addresses Argentine territorial integrity is a logical non-sequitur.

“Do not be afraid to debate and negotiation to resolve conflicts.”

Nice concept, but we have a conflict with Argentina.

Please strange the war in 1982, the expulsion of Argentine in 1833. There is a real conflict of sovereignty. Remember that 6 Nobel Peace prize claim to the UK to comply with UN resolutions.

You are the only screams.

Latin America and the world demands the solution of the conflict. UN CELAC, OAS, MERCOSUR, UNASUR, etc.. All international organizations calling for a peaceful solution.

And how do you expect to negotiate with when:
a) not to talk to us because we are the pirates or squatters or people who are not entitled to an opinion;

They are not a nation, are a colony. They have a governor appointed by the United Kingdom. They are entitled to your opinion and authority located somewhere in London. Remember you are not English Argentina. As an example, you may be UK Prime Minister, I mean you are English.

b) it will only accept an outcome.

It remains to be negotiated. You can look for alternative solutions that meet Argentina and United Kingdom.

c) none of the officials of his government to come here if we put our stamp on their passports.

It's a trap. You are English, and authority located somewhere in London. Remember that there are one nation. They are part of the United Kingdom. The conflict is between two nations. Remind decolonization committee of the UN. It is a conflict of sovereignty. No self-determination.

d) you want to ethnically cleanse the Islands and I have put much effort into getting my flat lawn allows you to do that.

Never would we do that. We suffer state terrorism with the military, with concentration camps and 30,000 missing.

- that the subjection of peoples to alien subjugation, domination and exploitation constitutes a denial of fundamental human rights (art. 1);
- that all peoples have the right to self-determination, but that this necessarily includes the right freely to determine their political status and freely to pursue their economic, social and cultural development (art. 2);
- that all armed action or repressive measures of all kinds directed against dependent peoples shall cease (art. 4);
- that immediate steps shall be taken, in United Nations Trust and Non-Self-Governing Territories or all other territories which have not yet attained independence, to transfer all powers to the peoples of those territories (art. 5).”

He even mentions the Latin American uti possidetis doctrine later in the discussion. Which basically says the UK owns the Falklands.

@32 Look in Google docs for: Susan Tiano, Authoritarianism and Political Culture in Argentina and Chile in the Mid - 1960's. Latin American Research Review, Vol. 21, No. 1 (1986), pp. 73-98. Little has changed since she wrote that :“ Peronists were the largest political group with a predisposition
to support autocratic institutions. But such predispositions were
found elsewhere in Argentine society, a fact that helps to account for
the multiple types of support available to autocratic leaders”.

No, I am not a Kelper (and nor am I British) but it is obvious how close links to Argentina were prior to 1982 .. and how strained they have remained ever since, even during the relative thaw during the Menem years.

You can't seriously expect the Islanders to ever trust Argentina again .. not after Argentina's deplorable behaviour and most certainly not after the total disregard for them shown by someone like Christina Kirchner, whose family have been in South America for less generations than most Islander families have been in the Falklands.

Good will has to start form, the Argentine side, yet they seem totally focussed on undermining any possibility of any good will.

QUESTION :

Does the US take a position on the recent posturing between the UK and Argentina over the Falklands ?

ANSWER :

This is a bilateral issue that needs to be worked out directly between the Governments of UK and Argentina.We encourage both parties to resolve their differences through dialogue in normal diplomatic channels.

We recognize the “” de facto “” UK administration of the islands but take no position regarding soverignity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The latest statement follows an Organization of American States Declaration in June last year where the US administration backed Argentina's calls over these islands as wel as press conference given by US Foreign Secretary and CFK in Buenos Aires in March 2010 sided with Argentina.

You are deliberately conflating two separate issues in your desperation to spew your propaganda. I was specifically talking about the self-determination issue trumping Argentina's territorial integrity argument .. which would have been obvious if you had bothered to read.

What you posted is about a whole different subject. And no, the US only backed calls for negotiations .. but not negotiations on Argentina's terms (so, no they didn't side with Argentina you cretin).

Raul #131 etc
You have swallowed your country's erroneous history of this matter much of which is void of any claims to the Falklands and only in 1941 when Argentina (under yet another dictatorship) saw that Britain was a bit pre-occuppied with Germany (now our good neighbour) did your country seek to spark an interest in the Falklands.

The Islanders of the Falklands have existed since before Argentina existed, islanders even founded Ushuaia and Puerto de Santa Cruz and Britain helped prevent war between you and Chile over the Beagle Islands, so how could an early Argentina allow this to happen if it were in such angst over the Falklands? Well the answer was the whole matter was put to bed in 1850 by the Convention of Settlement. So, even if you ignore that, you quote 1833, well there is no evidence at all that supports your claim, whereas Britain has all the evidence. Even Charles Darwin who happened to call by in 1833 after the explusion of the army garrison did a head count and counted 20 spaniards, the majority, among the population.. will you dispute this? If you did it would be a joke with the laugh on you.

So you had a bad time with 30,000 missing, that is very sad but I would be worried that this number might increase to 33,000. Perhaps I am too pessimistic but right now Argentina is sulking adolescent, close to the edge.

And Honoria, if you are a Falklander, hope the egg situation has improved!

@62, 69, 79, 87, 94, 101, 115, 131. I have read all your comments and I come to a conclusion. You are either a brainwashed tool or an illiterate fool. Let's start with the basics UN GA resolutions are NON-BINDING! So you can stop quoting them. None of them has any relevance. If you can't argue/discuss/propound without depending on them, don't bother. No-one with a brain pays any attention to them. Next point, Britain arrived in the Islands and claimed sovereignty in 1765. Spain tried to dispute that and lost. In 1833, Britain returned to re-establish sovereignty. Spain did not dispute that. The ONLY sovereign parties interested in the Islands by 1833 were Britain and Spain. Argentina (United Provinces) does not figure as it was a rebel colony. The concept of argieland “acquiring” territory because it declared independence has no international significance. The concept has NEVER and does not exist in international law. So now I suggest that you go through all your comments that depend on those arguments and delete them. I will not debate with you where you raise any of these matters AND I URGE EVERYONE ELSE TO DO THE SAME. Perhaps you should note how much of your drivel has been rejected. If you continue to try to use this garbage (as above) that has been dealt with innumerable times, you will be reported.

Yes, I have been through all this dross with your cretinous compatriot, Raul, and nothing in any of those resolutions says anything about territorial integrity trumping self-determination .. or even that negotiations have to be about sovereignty.

Fact: Argentina are repeatedly offered negotiations, but refuse to negotiate without preconditions (and the US Foreign Secretary has never expressed any support Argentina's preconditions).

The only country refusing to negotiate is Argentina.

@149 McClick, you are such a retard. These resolutions are not all relevant, as they supplant each other.

The only one that is still relevant is 43/25 ( www.falklands.info/history/resolution4325.html) and this was before Nestor Kirchner decided to unilaterally end negotiations over the resources of the islands, going against UN GA R 43/25. This allowed the UK & FIG to make decisions with Argentina in absentia. That's the law.

C24 doesn't count, because the UK doesn't engage with it (for it is a den of iniquity). The FIG does however, and this committee doesn't make resolutions.

The likelihood of the UN discussing annexation of the Falklands to Argentina is about as likely as them discussing the annexation of Guam to Iran. Get over it.

Clearly stung by Cameron’s words, perhaps they didn’t get a copy of the letter the UK sent to the UN.

“The United Kingdom is clear about both the historical and legal position on the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands. No civilian population was expelled from the Falkland Islands on 3 January 1833. An Argentine military garrison had been sent to the Falkland Islands three months earlier in an attempt to impose Argentine sovereignty over British sovereign territory.
The United Kingdom immediately protested and later expelled the Argentine military garrison on 3 January 1833. The civilian population, who had previously sought and received British permission to reside on the Islands, were encouraged to remain. The majority voluntarily chose to do so.”

“British sovereignty over the Falkland Islands dates back to 1765, some years before the Republic of Argentina even existed.”

The rest of the world got the the letter and knows what really happened, but the Argy foreign ministry clearly think they can still make it up as they go along, and be believed.

It matters not what anyone thinks with the exception of the Falkland Islanders. They hold the power to decide their future and that will be supported by the international community.

The truth is the Argentines like to talk. If talking was an Olympic sport they would be the Gold Medal holders but they rarely actually achieve anything.

The resolutions he mentions all refer back to Resolution 1514. All of them. 1514 clearly states that Self Determination is applicable to all.

The Resolutions themselves all mention the islanders interests are paramount(His response to this is HILARIOUS. Something about “the islanders intrests and not wishes” - He so far has refused to explain how this works.)

The C-24 has consistently throughout it's time as an entity stated that stated that in the process of decolonization there is no alternative to the principle of self-determination.

Also, I can't see any change to the Hawaiian flag adopted in 1959:
www.cvsflags.com/statedetail.cfm?NPart=Z02120102001&statecode=HI

The flags are just an acknowledgement of the history of these states. The Falkland Islands will very probably, like New Zealand and Australia, retain the Union flag, even the British Monarch as constitutional or ceremonial head of state if they choose to do so. There is no compulsion for any former British colony to do this, it's their right to decide. They can adopt whatever flag, and system of government they please. The Argentine government can shout as much as it likes, but it is not their business, they are irrelevant.

I know you're just trolling but you do realize that video was made by our Marines as a joke?

Zethe my friend given the average Argentine poster on here can't seem to understand reality or honesty I think you're giving the other poster far too much credit.

Set your sites lower my friend, much lower.

@201 Royal Mraines. Worlds best. Probably is a Joke, but does not alter facts.
A. 70 of them gave you a bloody nose on 2nd April 1982, before being ordered to surrender by Governor Rex.
B. 22 of them gave you a bloody nose, when yiu seized South Georgia, Marine C0mbes disabled your frigate with a Carl Gustav, forcing it to withdraw out of range.
C. When they returned with less than equal numbers, they comprehensively administered a defeat on your forces.

So laugh away, mate, their record speaks for itself.

@THOR94

Germany the most advanced country in Europe, hard workers obsessed for perfection and very polite so we will not hesitate to tell you what do you want to hear, because after all we slowly archive what we have planed.

All this has been very interesting,
My Conclusions:-

Argentines---the biggest liars on the planet.

@206 DanyBerger yes Germany is one of the most influential in Europe, and you have the French under heel aswell. Most advanced ? Debatable ?

'hard workers obsessed for perfection and very polite', it works both ways in stereotyping, you can not say everyone is like that, or indeed most of you. And people often dont hesitate to tell people what they want to hear, its what they dont want to hear, that makes one hesitate, and that is what we told you : No transaction tax. You wanted it, to pay for your failed Europe, and to give the French the much desired fall of the British Financial Industry. Obviously, we were worth more with you, that against, as the utters and rumours of a referendum and possible exit from the EU, brought about a timely visit to London, followed by apologise and begging. You have almost acheived what you have planned, yet you are further away from it that you ever were, with the slow collapse of many countries in the Eurozone, with many more to come. Good luck.

Talking all done? Can we start shooting now?

@211 Ragemar (#)
The talking was just a waste of time. All of you don't have any political power to defit the argentine leader or anyone else.
“Shooting”? You or Cameron cannot do any “shooting” now or later. US Pappa Obama holds Cameron's testicles like Bush did with Blair and Brown.
The UK only barks when the US tell them to bark. The war ship is just a show.
Ha Ha Ha....

@212 SussieUS (#) Yes you have great influence over us, but dont forget we hold much influence over you. What would America Do without its faithful ally the UK. Obama knows he needs our support in the future, hence why he came to London not long ago, and got down on one knee, and tried to lick our arse. You think that if the Argentines got aggressive, that Obama could stop us ? Wow, classic yank, who believes their country is the best 'because god loves it'. you need to do some growing up miss. The war ship is the most advanced in the world, even more advanced that your current frigates. It does do alot for show, but it does even more in a fight. Lets hope the Argentines do nothing to make it.....

The Argentine leader is claiming the islands like any other argentine president did in the past.
This is not reason for the brits to degrade her as a human being with insults.
The brits likes to insult her but they don't like to be insulted by argentinians.
Because of the brits insults I will continuing insulting the brits in Argentina or in the US until my last day!

CFK does nothing but try and insult the British, and the rest of the worlds intelligence while she is at it.

I wish you luck with the Anglophobia, wouldn’t want it to be suggested that we had anything in common with someone like you.

I have good luck. Even my american born husband don't like the brits like many other people. Accept the fact and get lost!

On no :o little sussie's husband doesnt like the British. Thats really upsetting...........Accept the fact that there are those that dont like the US, and those that dont like Argentina, and those that despise india. There a plenty of people whodont certain countries due to certain things. My point being, i think i can speak on behalf of the entirety of the UK in saying, no gives a flyinf f*ck, what you or your husband think, and going around 'naaaa he doesnt like oyu, i dont like', is not what the comment sections is for. Its for intellectual people, debating in a serious manor.

ps. please dont get your big bad husband to beat me up.......

@SussieUS

Dear Sussie don’t waste your time with THOR94 he is the classic hopeless peripheral “Brit Nintendo” from the countryside who thinks that UK superior to US or comparable to Germany and that he cans win a war against Argentina because he got a new brand type 45 D.

Really none can blame him for his ignorance after all Brits are brainwashed from the day they are born.

@218 DanyBerger (#) please quote me when i have said that we are superior to the US or Germany ? Or when did i even mention that we would win a war with a Argentina .The joke is Argentines are brainwashed. How can the Brits be brainwashed ? We do not learn about any of our history or politics in our education. We are never told that we did this or this is the way we should think. I will forgive you German, because many of you were stung and still feel the sting of being defeated in two world wars, and never in history fully broken the UK . You and little sussie do speak some nonsense........

@216 SussieUS,
Well that's nice for you.
We don't really care about you or your precious Argentina.
ln fact one could say that we don't like Argentines at all.
Mostly liars.
