Clear message to Argentina: 99.8% of Falkland Islanders want to stay British

Despite frequent snow showers and zero temperatures, the celebratory party had already started on Arch Green in the centre of Port Stanley as the result of the Falklands’ referendum was a foregone conclusion, but the loud cheer that went up from the assembled gathering could be heard all over the town as the news filtered through that only 3 persons had voted against the Falklands remaining a self-governing dependent territory of Great Britain.

Falkland Islanders gathered despite freezing temperature to celebrate at the Arch Green next to Stanley’s cathedral (Pic Reuters)

1,513 of the 1,518 persons, who cast their vote, put an X alongside the YES box. This gave an overwhelming 99.8% victory to those who wish the Islands to remain British.

Perhaps more importantly was the 92% turn-out of voters which emphasizes the strong desire of the Falkland Islands population to exercise their right to self-determination and to make their voice heard.

A vast array of British and Foreign media had gathered in the Islands to report on the referendum and the news of the resounding 'YES' vote was soon reverberating all around the world.

'The message is loud and clear', said Member of the Legislative Assembly Gavin Short, 'that we want to stay British and Argentina cannot ignore the wishes of the people'.

He added: 'The United Nations cannot ignore the outcome either as we have ensured that the vote was conducted in a fair and democratic manner and supervised by an International team of observers from North, Central and South America'.

Mr. Brad Smith, the Head of the International Observation Mission, in a statement, released immediately after the result was announced, said: 'It is our finding that the Falkland Islands referendum process was free and fair, reflecting the democratic will of the voters of the Falkland Islands'.

While the Argentine Government has repeatedly declared that they would not recognize the result of the referendum, there is no doubt the message from the Falklands cannot be mistaken and the 99.8% vote in favour of the population wishing to remain British will be frequently brought to their attention whenever future calls are made for Britain to engage in negotiations over the sovereignty of the Islands.

Several Argentine Nationals who live on the Islands had indicated that they too would vote 'YES' for the Islands to remain British, pinpointing the unstable Argentine Government as one of their reasons and because they enjoy a high standard of living and fantastic education opportunities for their children as another reason.

That's THREE people voted no.

And even those 3 may have wanted independence over Argentina.

Time for the UN Decolonisation committee to now remove the Islands from their jurisdiction. Its not tenable when 99.8% vote to stay a BOT in a free and fair election for the UN to have anymore to do with this issue.

You can say many things indeed, that wont get you no islands. The Falklanders may choose to be Brits, one day they may even choose independency. But one thing is for sure, those islands will never be British. They can be occupied by Britain for as long as their military supremacy and economy allows them to, but they will never ever BE British. Enjoy the moon.

Well that won't be much considering how much La Campora pay you, will it?

But this referendum wasn't for Argentina. It was to show the rest of the world that the Islanders exist, that they have a voice and that they have the right to determine their own future.

Your not big on freedom and self-determination are you DoD? You believe that the Islanders should live under the jackboot of the fascist Peronists.

But is won't ever happen.

Still you can console yourself by posting sh!te and deliberately 'misinterpreting' the constitution of the Islands, and the UN resolutions and all those other things that you like doing.

But the Islanders will remain a British Overseas Territory until THEY decide that they don't want to be anymore. But that certainly won't make them Argentinian.

Here is another one for the Argentinian ectoplasmic jellies to feast on:

The Charter of the United Nations explicitly declares that “All peoples have the right to self-determination; by virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.”

Yet, in a flagrant disregard of very principles of UN General Assembly Resolution 1514, under which the Committee of 24 was founded, Argentina is currently imposing an economic blockade on the Falkland Islands and thus seeking to deny the Falkland Islanders their right to determine their own political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development. Remember that the next time you try to soi transparently misrepresent Committee of 24 votes, you clueless, snivelling and uneducated bunch of fascist toadies.

I would also say that the next Referendum after we Scots say NO to independence should be to ask the British People if they wish to incorporate their overseas possession into the United Kingdom and renegotiate the relationship with Europe (us being a global power and all). No hard feelings, JB, Falkland Islanders would be allowed to vote but you might find the % overwhelming.

Following your banal logic, the people of Argentina shouldn't have any say in electing the government of Argentina .. and nor should residents of individual Argentinian states have a say in electing their own regional representatives. Talk about deluded blowhard logic.

I remember, not so long ago, Isolde, Yankeeboy and others where acusing Mr. Vuggevise (he called himself Mr. Skare at the time) and me of being a “Pantomime Horse” act...

Yes, that's worth repeating for the benefit of the blowtards: Several Argentine Nationals who live on the Islands had indicated that they too would vote 'YES' for the Islands to remain British :-)

It is also worth noting that some of those are descendants of the Argentine national who in 1981 acted as a spy and informer for the Argentinian army and who is today openly described by his own children and grandchildren as a “vile man”.

Think - do pl;ease explain to me the diffrence in “squatting”

People who can trace their familes back up to 180 years in an empty land where there were no indigenous peoples to move out and take over their lands.

People who can trace their families back 200 years to a land that was originally occupied by natural indigenous peoples - who were in many cases forced out of their ancestral lands by the early day Colonists, and in other areas simply wiped out and exterminated in a virtual genocidal war.

Please explain the difference?

If you live on a land that they do want, then you are classed as implanted.

Britain doesn't claim the whole of the Chilean sector of the Antarctic.

Chile claims PART of the pre-existing internationally agreed British sector, along with part of the sector claimed by Argentina (which is wholly contained within the British sector). Do try to get your facts right, you propagandist truth-torturing propagandist moron.

Britain and Chile have also agreed to cooperative in those areas and not to blow the issue out of all proportion and threaten, intimidate and impose sanctions. The same can't be said for Argentina's handling of their own claims in Antarctica.

Vuggevise has partly answered for me.
My nationality doesn't mean I must ignore history. The British claimed “their” part of the Antarctic before we did. The part we claim lies within the part they claim.

We both have claims with different merits. They were there first, mapped it explored it, set up bases and continue to do much globally useful research. We arrived later, we have set up bases, we are the closest county to the continent. There is not dispute because we have both signed up to the Antarctic treaty which freezes all claims on the continent.

I have said before on this board that I don't like the way successive Chilean governments have mislead the population to believe that the Antarctic is our. From school age it is taught that it is part of our territory and the nightly weather forecast features it too. This is wrong and only stokes future problems.

THE TRUE CLEAR MESSAGGE.
I understand the moment of great popular happyness that the population from the islands must be going through. In fact, they could celebrate yesterday what they have always wished. They could have their referendum finally, with the purpose of expressing their wish of remaining under british government.
However, beyond that popular happyness, there are objetive facts that we can't ignore, if we want to make a serious analysis of such a complicated cause like this one.
That so wished referendum wasn't supervised by the u. n., it was just supervised by sixty representants from different nations, which is absoluty irrelevant, and doesn't change the politic status of this conflict in absolut.
The fact that such an important decision of making a referendum in the inslands, in order to determine the politic status of the territory, is not surpervised by the u. n., is the true important messagge that the islanders, and the u. k's govt. should take into account, in order to solve this dispute. Beside, both should remember the words of the president from the decolonization committee, who said last week that self determination is not applicable for this case.
On the other hand, the govt. from the islands, the u. k., the sepoys who we live in the mainland, and those argentines who live in the islands, who love being pro imperalist, should understand once and for all that the u. k. is not the owner of the international right, so, if the u. n. call arg. and the u. k. to resume the negotiations, in order to find a solution for this conflict, it should be respected by both nations, beyond the positive and negative aspects that arg. has, like all the rest of the countries around the world, including their so loved u. k.
Maybe those people someday learn to separate the actual context, from the previous contexts.
Accept them or not, self determination has never been applied for this cause by the u. n., as it was for other colonial situations.

Same old rhetoric.

So have some back.

If Argentinas claim to the Falklands is so sure in your minds, why do you not go to the ICJ?
Why did the Argentine Government not lay claim to them when they signed that piece of paper in 1850?
Who found the Islands? Who laid claim to them first? Who has never relinquished their claim?

Well, that is where you are wrong, because the United Nations very much dictates that the principle of self-determination applies to such situations ... and I challenge you to cite any reference where the United Nations General Assembly or Security Council have ever voted to say otherwise. Whenever Argentina has attempted to get the United Nations to say otherwise, it has been overwhelmingly rejected.

As for negotiations, it is only Argentina that refuses to enter into negotiations, because it imposes preconditions which neither the United Nations C24, nor the General Assembly or Security Council have imposed in their calls for negotiations to take place. There was a long and constructive dialogue which Argentina unilaterally withdrew from and instead chose bellicose self-defeating sabre rattling.

The fact that the referendum wasn't supervised by the United Nations is wholly irrelevant to all but those who naively swallow CFK perverted propaganda .. propaganda she needs because the Falkland Islands have demonstrated a unity that Argentina can only dream of.

In 1843, the Argentine leader Juan Manuel de Rosas, looking for a way to settle a £1 million from 1824 that had been in default for 15 years (yes, they do have a very long history of this default business, don't they?), offered to drop claims to sovereignty of the islands if the British government would take over the debt. Britain refused, arguing that it already possessed them.

I think that shows just how little interest Argentina actually has in the Falklands.

Excellent comment. It really is the true message claro.y very strong. The international community and world public opinion can no longer be deceived by colonialism and imperialism in the 21st century English.

Ban Ki-moon said:

“naive” implies a lack of experience. If we look back at our history we can see that on two occasions our Peruvian/Bolivian brothers have formed secret alliances against us and in much more recent times our primitos Argentinos laid plans to invade our territory. The Brits on the other hand have always been our allies.

Naivety would be for Chile to believe that Argentina has changed its spots and buried its colonial ambition.

Absolutely. It is hard not to be. Look where we have come from, look where we are. Life is good, the future is bright.

Just look at these imbeciles axel, raul and think... they honestly believe their reworked history that they never signed the 1850 treaty of perfect friendship, geographical proximity is still a reason to own something, and the 1982 war had no consequences. They honest believe this utter tripe and just repeat the same shameless ignorance relentlessly as if anyone with half an education will sign up to their curious plan to ethnically cleanse some islands due to their inherent racism. The same racism lets them kill their indigenous people who apparently owned the land they live on, and yet refer to other as 'colonial implants'.

By negotiation axel and Raul mean that they want Argentina to end up with more than they have today and the islanders to end up with less.

That doesn't sound like negotiation to me.

However the UN doesn't call for negotiations on sovereignty at all.

It calls for the disagreement to settled peacefully...which ONLY Britain does by maintaining its military defences it is guaranteeing peace in the region as the only aggressors are the Argentines.

Britain offered discussions just last month and Argentina refused.

My “negotiations” would require a complete withdrawal from Patagonia for 100 years and full reparations made to the indigenous that weren't slaughtered by the genocidal Argentines.

After 100 years we could go to the ICJ to see if the 50 or so UP militia and rapists were actually hard done by during their 2 month usurption of the islands.

I note, amusingly, from the article:
“”The Argentinian government accuses Britain of 'colonial behavior,' despite the fact that they only landed a few hundred settlers on an uninhabited island.“

”I think the real colonialists are the 40 million Spanish-speaking white people who live on my ancestors' land. We the Mapuche are calling on Argentina to remove its settlers from our land and return them to Europe.“

If Argentina has a claim to the Falklands, don't the Mapuche have a clain to Argentina?

In 1833 not one shot was fired. No attack. Only mutinous soldiers from the UP (no Argentina back then either) were removed. Again. No attack, no force, they left peacefully.

Regarding the Indigenous population issue. Argentina (and Spain before them) murdered the indigenous populations of South America and stole their land. The Falkland Islanders are the 1st people to settle the Islands, that also makes them indigenous people.

So it is very relevant. Argentina is a hypocrite. Your entire country was founded on murder and colonialism. Your country committed acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing against the native peoples. Your country wants to commit acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing against the indigenous people of the Falklands too.

What xevioso was trying to point out was the hypocrisy of the Argentine position. You accuse the British of stealing the Islands and colonising them, yet Argentina stole the land from the natives and colonised that.

You want the Islanders to 'hand back' what you say (erroneously I add) the land that was stolen, yet you won't hand back the land that was stolen from the Native Amerindians.

Hypocrite.

By the way, I notice that the grammar of your post and spelling has changed. Do you have a time share with another La Campora troll, who uses this screen name?

@195 Think:

Indian territories in the US are effectively nations that can set their own laws.

Tribal sovereignty in the United States refers to the inherent authority of indigenous tribes to govern themselves within the borders of the United States of America. The federal government recognizes tribal nations as “domestic dependent nations” and has established a number of laws attempting to clarify the relationship between the federal, state, and tribal governments. The Constitution and later federal laws grant local sovereignty to tribal nations, yet do not grant full sovereignty equivalent to foreign nations, hence the term “domestic dependent nations”.

You should not be surprised to understand that there are many people in the U.S. who believe we stole Native American land, and that they certainly do have a right to ask for it back. In many cases we have given it back to them. You can visit the Cherokee Nation any time.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherokee_Nation

But I noticed you avoided my question by using the arbitrary definition of “Civilized Christian Nation”, some entity that, as far as I am aware, no courts in Argentina or Great Britain or The UN recognize. Did you make that up?

At the end of the day, there is a large group of indigenous people in your country that your ancestors supplanted. Those people would like their land back. Do you support handing Argentina back over to the Indigenous people your ancestors supplanted?

If no, then don't the people who live on the Falkland Islands also have a right to say no to Argentina when it asks the same of them?

You said that 59 souls were evicted, 55 of whom had only set foot on the islands for the very first time 2 months earlier.

55 people (many who were not Argentine) for 2 months is NOT a “population” is it Think?

Answering your “rephrased question”:
”Do you believe Argentina should hand its land back over to the Native Amerindians people your ancestors took it from?”

I do believe that any ”Dominant Society”, in this case Argentina, should strive to devolve as much territory and dignity as possible to its Indigenous Populations.

Quite acceptable examples of the above would be the policies implemented by Sweden or Canada.
Much less so are the, mostly failed, policies implemented by the USA.

During the last 30 years of democracy, Argentina has given giant steps in the creation of a wide-ranging Indigenous Peoples Legislation.
The implementation of that quite adequate legislation is though sketchy, at best.

And, to end….
I’ll repeat again…:
The Malvinas Issue Between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Argentina has NOTHING to do with the Indigenous Issue.

It's not very fair to ask me a question and then not wait for an answer.

You say:
“What history?”

1864: Argentina supported Spain against Chile in the Chincha wars.

1881: Argentina was party to the Peruvian / Bolivian conniving of the 19th century against Chile. Furthermore, once we were embroiled in the war with them Argentina pushed to resolve the issue of disputed Patagonia, knowing full well that Chile would have to cede given we couldn't fight all three at once.

1891: Argentina offers the USA Salta as a base from where to attack Chile.

1978: the Beagle conflict, Argentina claims Chilean territory in disregard of the treaty signed in 1881.

1978: Plan Soberanía

2004: Argentina proposes Chilean territory be given to Bolivia - in disregard of the Pactos de Mayo to which Argentina was a signatory.

This 99.8% CONFIRMS that the population of the islands does not match the Self Determination way to solve the conflict. Self Determination must be claimed by populations that are supposed to be invaded and dominated by another society, and the islanders ARE british and want to remain being territory of Great Britain, cause their place in there can't be explained without the story of colonization and the UK seizing lands allover the world.

You guys there, in Malvinas might think it is ok, maybe because you are always exposed by a media that shows Argentina as a monster, as an aggressive society that hates british people and that would take away all your rights, nothing further from reality, guess what? Argentina is not the one holding the weapons in here, and outside that capsule the world really thinks that this situation is not ok and it's not fair.

As a person that celebrates the pacific search for justice and decolonization that Argentina is carrying out, I believe that Argentina should be celebrating this. In a way (one that the international corporate media won't spread the world), this demonstrate that colonialism is alive and strong in SouthAmerica.

Even the USA, that has been the UK's best alliance even at fundamentalistic wars is seeing this as a show for the media. If the USA is acting this way, all my people here please let me express that things are as clear as a glass of water. Only the power of huge international corporations can still keep this excuse of self determination alive.

In 1833, and for at least 50 years thereafter, all of Patagonia was no mans land. The Falklands were at least 1600 km from “Argentina” which, oh shucks, didnt actually exist until around 1850. Britain could easily have taken Patagonia too, so consider yourself lucky to have it. In fact the Welsh were the first to have the courage to settle there (1860's) amongst the fierce Indians. That was before General Roca decided to wipe out the Indians so as to make it safe for the latino colonisation which only got under way in the 1890's.

(Ahhhhh Rhodesia ….. all those ”When I”….Pamwe Chete memories ;-)

In fact, British governments only developed a taste for self-determination after they had been forced to abandon the bulk of their empire and saw a way to hold on to colonised enclaves of dependent populations in places like Gibraltar and Northern Ireland.
But it's always been a pick and mix affair: there were no self-determination ballots for the people of Hong Kong or the Chagos Islands, expelled by Britain four decades ago to make way for an American air base in Diego Garcia. There are different rules, it seems, for white people.

It is Argentina that holds their guns towards the falklands, it is argentina that invaded the falklands, argentina that blockades, argentina that threatens the economy, threatens the falklands way of life, argentina from lowly mercopress poster, to full blown Presidentee that insults the falkland islanders as squatters and pirates and insults our war dead through weasally embarrassing snide olympic videos, argentina is the master of its own misfortune and oh boy you have screwed it up badly.

You guys claim to want to rid the world of colonies, first step then, kill yourselves. You are a spanish colony as much as the falklands are a british colony. Britain did not slaughter a single native in acquiring the falklands, not a single argentine/spaniard was killed, not one. Britain claimed it in 1765, at least 50 years before Argentina existed. The argentine garrison removed in 1833 was done without a shot fired, the civilian population mostly elected to stay on the island (self determination) and even Sir Charles Darwin's diaries and louis vernet's records show this to be true.

Britain's priveleges. We are a permanent member of the security council and we earned it. Argentina is merely an embarrassing guest on the council at the moment. Argentine malvinistas seem to band around the world imperial/colonial and live in a world of anti-european sentiment. Seems to me that you are driven by some kind of jealousy, racism even.

The message is clear , they do not want to be argentine, well lets face it, who in their right mind would want to be when you could be a cool Brit, drinking tea, eating cucumber sandwiches on the lawn, whilst watching cricket, or tennis, whilst thinking 'thank fuck I'm not Argentine'.. more tea anyone?

Also you and others would do well to separtae out the truth between those nations that formally and in writing back the Arg claim - as aprt from those that merely say - yes there is a dispute - the relevant parties should solve it peacefully etc.
But hell - when did truth and reality ever bother the Kirschener Govt .
Over that last year or two I have spoken with several senior Chilean Diplomats current and retired - who all fully agree for instance that the majority in Chile feel that the Islands belong to the people who live there - the minority say they should belong to Argentina.
But looking at the border line in kilometers and the need to “manage” relations with neighbours(one can only choose friends- one has to live with neighbours) all Chilean Govts have to go in public with the minority view - that is reality
Uruguay the position is the same.

Both have a different line though when dealing direct with the Islands.

Thanks for not inviting me because even though I'm here in Arg, I don't really want to visit Mendoza - been there, done that - scruffy city, dusty untidy roads, broken pavements, crappy casino, lousy restaurants, scruffy vineyards, indifferent wine. Most of the vineyards are not even open to independent visitors - you are expected to join a ripoff tour. I rented a car (at twice the European price for a very crappy car) but was disappointed that very few if any vineyards have nice guest lodges or fine-dining restaurants. We had to stay in some primitive places and they weren't easy to find either. For an experience it simply cannot possibly compare with the Cape of Good wine country - talk about chalk and cheese - have you been there Hypowhat? Its a paradise on earth - the jagged mountain scenery, the old Cape Dutch buildings, the beautifully-tended gardens, the giant old oak trees, the friendly people, the wine, the prices, the.... Oh shit - sorry, of course like most Args you either cannot afford to travel or your govt won't let you buy foreign currency will they? Unless, as I speculated earlier, you are somehow connected to the Cristina F**K “peoples” dictatorship.

RAVEN. VUGGEVISE.
Raven: This is evident that you ignore that between 1884 and 1888, arg. suggested taking the case to the arbitration, which was rejected by the u. k.
In 1947, the u. k. manifested arg. that it would be disposed to discuss about the dependencies from the islands, south georgia and sandwich, before the i. c. j, but it didn't include the mavinas-falklands in the proposal. In my opinion, if none of the two nations proposed again to take the question to th i. c. j., after 1947, is because perhaps both aren't sure of getting a positive outcome for their countries.
On the other hand, while it is true that arg's claim wasn't continues during some periods of time, when arg. had a very big economic dependence with the u. k., which showed that it was obvious that it wasn't in conditions for claimg the u. k. for it's rights over the islands, however, despite these aspects, the u. k. accepted to start negotiations with the country, in 1968, 1974 and 1980, which showes that the case has strong and weak aspects for both nations, and you should take into account all these aspects too, in order to make a serious analysis, instead of telling just what is convenient for you.
Vuggevise: Accepted or not, the case has always been considered as a special colonial situation, and self determination has never been invoked in any of the resolutions that were expressed for this case, in fact, get into the webside from the u. n., and you'll see that there is not any resolution which says: application of the right to self determination for the malvinas-falkland cause.
Like it or not, that right has never been applied for this cause, as it was for other colonial situations.

@309 Anglotino,
Argentina was great at one time.
ln 1900 it had one of the highest, if not THE highest standard of living in the world.
As far as investment went it was part of Britain's “lnformal Empire”
The investments there made a lot of people very wealthy in both Britain & Argentina.
lt could be wealthy & prosperous again if it was managed correctly.
Not sure when the rot started, but Peron certainly helped it along.

to all the keepers and their supporters......

I know that there is no permanent population on S.Georgia or its dependencies, and maybe thats why I am the only one who keeps bringing up the issue. Anyway this is why I chose the good name of Ernest Shackleton, my apologies to this great British hero, who would be furious at his resting place being ceded to Argentina. With regards to the FI I think this is a very relevant point I make that the RG's are also claiming these islands which neither they nor Spain ever had anything to do with. Trivial as it is, we all know the basis of the RG claim to the FI, and we can and do and will argue about that till hell freezes over. But nobody, least of all the RG's knows under what basis, historical or otherwise, rests their very belated (around 1940) and spurious claim to SG. In dozens of posts I have only ever had one response from an RG (think) who said “we want it because you want it”, which is not only nonsensical but childish, but then thats what we have come to expect from these thick-skulled turnip heads. Only one person has given a rational reason (obviously not an RG) and that was to say the claim is based purely on the fact that SG is administered as a dependency of the FI. But if this is the basis of the claim, then doesn't that imply a de-facto acceptance of British ownership of the FI ..?

IMO there is a sneaky ulterior motive. The RG's know their claim to SG is nonsensical but they added it to their “wish list”, so to speak, hoping that at a later point Britain would eventually accede to the relentless RG demands for the FI on condition that they (the Brits) keep SG - to which Argentina would “reluctantly” agree (whilst barely containing their childlike glee) as a face-saver for the Brits. Rather like a bazaar merchant will ask 3x what his goods are worth so that a 50% discount looks like a great bargain. Anyone have any input?

@312 ernest shackleton,
l too, in the past, have brought up the RGs ridiculous “claims” to South Georgia & the SSI.
l agree with what you say to a certain extent but l believe that there is more to it than that.
They desperately want the sole rights to plunder Antarctica's resources & don't like the idea of competition.
Possession of all British Antarctic lslands & territory is their first step.
They could then also control any shipping movements between South America & Antarctica.
Of course, the oil from the Falklands is an added unexpected bonus.
Peron started all this guff, he admired Mussolini, who as we know was always going on about the “effete” British.
This combined with the dithering of the Foreign Office over the Falklands, prior to 1982 has emboldened the Argentines.
And of course, now they have convinced themselves that all this land is really theirs.
They are like the schoolyard bully who senses weakness & takes advantage over it.
lt came as a big shock to them that we actually fought back, then went on to defeat them.
Their Latin psyche cannot handle defeat. They must always win.
That is why l believe that they will try again.
They didn't claim British Antarctica until 1942(&Chile in 1940)when they both thought that Britain would lose the war.
Their only real argument is proximity(which isn't an argument at all)as their myth of expulsion has been shown to be a pack of lies.
To finish up, they have no moral, legitimate, legal or historical rights to our territory & deep down, l suspect that they know this.
They are just“trying it on” & hoping for a miracle.

@ 313 Isolde

Thanks for your valuable input and the interesting points you make. The analogy with Mussolini is apt since he only joined Hitler's war belatedly when France was on its knees and he thought he could get a chunk of S.France cheaply. Similarly ARg thought it could get the FI with a bit of schoolyard bullying, as you say. And they still think that way. I agree with you that when their “peaceful” bullying fails, they will try again. They cannot be trusted, ever..!!

@315 Think,
Not very original, Alte.
l note that you didn't even attempt to refute my points.
Your reason for Argentina's ridiculous“claims”on South Georgia are:-
“Because we want them” -your own words.
That is an admission that they belong to someone else(Britain)& your country knows this & desires them & therefore will lie & cheat & whine & complain & eventually attempt to take them by force or hope for a miracle.

I agree in total with what you have written. Argentina has always acquired land by deception or murder and they are known to the world as thieves.
Many of the commentators writing on these comment sections who argue with us over our homeland are fanatics , few in numbers and puppets of the regime that runs them.
The only reason for their continued claim to the Falkland Islands and dependencies is as already mentioned by others . They want control of the South Atlantic Antarctica gateway and will not stop until someone decides that it has gone on long enough.

I also agree that there will inevitably be war over our Country again because of the fact that with the discovery of oil we are going to be more desirable to own.
You are also right in saying that Argentina has no absolute claim to South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands even if there was a thread of truth in the Falklands Issue.

The reason they started their campaign on south Georgia in 1992 was to see just how much of an interest Great Britain actually had in the Islands and they almost got away with it if it was not for the fact they raised their Flag on it.
You are also right in that the Argentines would use South Georgia as a sob giveaway as part of their real prize but what may have been possible once is now, thanks to the world communications very unlikely to happen.

The only way that the threat from Argentina will ever go away is by a total external military defeat of their Country and that is unlikely to happen unless Argentina starts another war over the Islands. If they do then the next tie will see their complete defence system destroyed and when that happens Chile , Uruguay, Brazil and others will seize the opportunity and Argentina know this and it is that which is keeping them from current military action.

@ sthink & hypocrite...

Interesting that in Arg nobody can even dare mention that the Arg claim is invalid, let alone side with the FI. Wasn't there recently a small but very courageous group of Argentines who tried to open a rational debate on the “Malvinas” issue? The fact that they were shouted down as traitors and issued with death threats speaks volumes for the lack of freedom within Arg.

In Britain, on the other hand, we have the likes of George Galloway (vocal advocate for Muslim fanaticism) being politely interviewed by the BBC as if the odious opinions of this despicable opportunist are widely held by the British public. Since his opinions are only held by a small minority, and can be guaranteed to be anti-British in content, I personally disagree with allowing such blatant traitors a national voice, but this is the difference between the 2 sides.
