Falkland Islands: More stunts can be expected from Argentina says visiting diplomat

“I THINK there is no doubt that the Argentine Government will continue to look for opportunities to pull stunts of one kind or another.”
The speaker was Dr Peter Hayes, the Director of the FCO’s Overseas Territories Directorate who was paying a short visit to the Falkland Islands last week.

Asked what further lengths the Argentines might go to after having tried to enlist the help of the new Pope, Dr Hayes said, “For the Argentineans this is essentially a PR campaign. They are looking to keep the issue on the agenda, to continue to suggest there is a problem and to wear down the Islanders, the UK and others in the region.

That is one of their big miscalculations thinking they will wear down the Islanders and the UK when actually what they are doing is strengthening the resolve.”

Dr Hayes, who took over the job of Director of the Overseas Territories in October of last year was paying his first visit to the Falkland Islands, following a recent visit to St Helena. He admitted that his visit was short, but said that he had wanted to make a first visit as early as possible, even if it had to be short, but expected it would be the first of a number of visits. He had already met some of the MLAs in London, read briefings and spoken to colleagues, but there was no substitute, he said, “for coming myself and sniffing the air and to start that process of really educating myself about the Falkland Islands.”

He said it was such an exciting time to be in the Falklands just after the referendum when the world’s media were focussed on the Islands for very good reasons, because the Islanders had taken an opportunity into their own hands and made it happen. It was, said Dr Hayes a good time to start the process of talking about how the referendum would work to the benefit of the Islanders in the long term.

A very powerful signal had been sent to the world and the task now was to consider how to continue to support that and to make it help to build the relationships that were desired.

Asked whether the Falklands referendum might encourage other Overseas Territories along the path towards greater autonomy, Dr Hayes said that while he hadn’t heard any of the other territories say that they wanted to do something similar, there were Overseas Territories which had political parties who were ostensibly in favour of independence.

He said hat while up to now there hadn’t that while up to now there hadn’t been a lot of support amongst the people, the UK Government’s position remained that if people did decide that they wanted to change the relationship then it would support that and help them. In this case holding a referendum would be important; it had to be not just the politicians’ wish to either keep or change the relationship with Britain, but the clearly expressed views of the people.

Asked for a reaction to the statement by the Argentine Government that the referendum was an irrelevancy organised by the British Government, Dr Hayes replied, “One of the great successes of the referendum was the international observation. It would be very difficult to suggest that this very large group of people from a lot of different countries including people of great standing and reputation: politicians and civil society people from around the region as well as from Canada and elsewhere, had been stage managed by you or by us in some way. It would be pretty difficult to persuade people of that.

“A particularly strong and successful part of the referendum was that we had the world media here; together with this large group of observers, who were able to say that this clearly was the genuinely expressed view of the people.”

Dr Hayes said that the more difficult and in some ways more offensive issue in their campaign is that the Argentines say that the views of the people do not matter; that it is about history and sovereignty, but not about the people.

“The most important thing that we have to counter is this suggestion that the views of the people don’t matter.” (PN)

@1 In your dreams, sonny boy. Here's a prediction. YOU won't be alive to see it IF it ever happens! You bunch of incompetents have made so many mistakes. First mistake, travelling to South America to murder and steal in the first place. Then, you picked the wrong place to trespass on. After that, the mistakes just build up. Trying to put a penal colony on someone else's territory. Sending a bunch of criminals and murderers to do it. Signing a treaty you didn't know how to read. Letting one of your vice-presidents tell the truth. Giving power to dumdum Peron. Letting him cosy up to Adolf. Trying more attempts at stealing someone else's territory. Starting, and losing, a war. And now, in the current world, doing many of the most stupid things you've ever tried. An “attempted” economic blockade. Sanctions in contravention of the UN Charter. Displaying your blundering, belligerent, bungling, bullying to the world and publicising it yourself. And, best of all, your continued whittering about inapplicable and irrelevant UN resolutions. For a “country” that repeatedly rushes to the UN to whinge, you display your total ignorance of its relevance or importance. You're a totally clueless and useless bunch. At the very least, you should wait until you've grown up!

Oh, by the way, when my children were in 3rd grade, they knew that just because an island is 350 miles away does not justify sovereignty. Visiting lovely Bermuda, very close to the US, is just one example of many.

We, the Brits, should wear down the Argentines, telling them how irresponsible they are telling their school children that the Falklands belong to Argentina and writing it into their constitution based on such a tenuous or, at best, finely balanced claim.

Argentina needs friends, trade and investment to realise its potential. CFK's and Timerman's policy towards us and, at a remove, our friends in the Commonwealth, EU and Northern Hemisphere, is utterly short-sighted.

The 1982 Task Force did Argentina and Latam an enormous favour by showing them how pathetic their military dictatorships were. Now Latam needs to raise its game a little further.

Dr. Hayes, Director for the Overseas Territories, wants to “start the process of educating myself about the Falkland Islands”. A good start would be reading UN Resolution 2065 (XX) Question of the Falkland Islands/Malvinas and the 4th Committee's background reports. Here he will quickly discover that the “population” of the Falkland Islands does not have the right of self-determination, reserved for “peoples” in the UN Charter. Then the referendum becomes pie-in-the-sky.

Look at their leader's faces. Of course the British, Spanish, Italians, and Germans will use Argentina as an escapegoat to distract their despairing citizens of their own problems. It's all Argentina's fault for talking about the Faklands, for buying out YPF, for not paying back the crooked Italian and Geman bondholders, for restricting French imports into Argentina.

Argentina is the only thing Europeans have left to justify their failures.

Much fun to be had here. Where shall I start? How about “because the Islanders had taken an opportunity into their own hands and made it happen. It was, said Dr Hayes, a good time to start the process of talking about how the referendum would work to the benefit of the Islanders in the long term.”

Dr Hayes clearly supports the line that the Referendum was a Short/Sawle initiative by suggesting that someone might have given a thought or two about what to do with it before embarking on the initiative. With the responsible Minister and his own predecessor moved sideways prior to career downgrades, its no surprise to see him distancing himself from early involvement in this sorry and ill conceived tale.

As for his response to the question about stage management, it must be a case of misreporting. He surely realises that the International Observation effort was as much stage managed as the voting itself. Not fiddled, just an entirely predictable outcome.

Misreporting must be to blame for this gem too “Asked whether the Falklands referendum might encourage other Overseas Territories along the path towards greater autonomy...”. How can a consultative referendum designed to reinforce the status quo be seen as an encouragement for anywhere seeking greater autonomy to do the same? If that was what was wanted there should have been a No vote.

Finally, I too find it unacceptable to say that the views of the people don't matter. Of course they matter and should be taken into account as British policy on the Islands develops. No doubt about it.

No, when Timerman was in London it was not high on the news agenda and the FCO statements were fairly low key. No big speeches or tub-thumping.
Argentina is a political irrelevance in Europe but is composed of a people we feel vaguely sorry for, so there is no great kudos in getting one over on it.

Accusing Europeans of using Argentina as a distraction for internal problems is highly Freudian. The whole world knows that Argentinian rhetoric on the Falklands is inversely proportional to its economic success so no-one is ever fooled.

Cristina Kirchner / Official
•Even before she was elected president of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner carried the haze of corruption. In the most famous case, an emissary from Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela, was discovered at the Buenos Aires airport carrying a briefcase stuffed with $800,000 in cash, destined, he later told the FBI, to support Kirchner’s presidential bid. Kirchner denied the allegation. Within Argentina, many question the huge fortune Kirchner and her late husband Nestor amassed since taking public office. Her declared personal wealth stands at $13.8 million, up from $500,000 when the couple first entered national politics. Kirchner cites income from real estate and hotels the couple had purchased to explain the 2,600 percent return on the couple’s investment purse. Corruption watchers complain that her government has neutered government oversight, giving auditing posts to cronies compromised by conflicts of interest. The result: corruption cases take an average of 14 years to work through the system, according to the non-profit Center for the Study and Prevention of Economic Crimes, and only 15 in 750 cases have led to convicti

That UN resolution, and your interpretation of it, are 50 years out of date. A lot of things have happened since then, most notably your country invalidating the resolution by invading the Falklands.
The other thing that has happened is that the world has moved on from thinking that you can subjugate an entire population against its will. You appear not to have noticed this and are stuck in some kind of colonialist time warp.
Can I ask you two questions, which I have asked many Argentines and never got a straight answer?
First, who do you think is best placed to decide what is in the Falkland Islanders' best interests, if not us?
Second, how do you propose to subjugate us, given that none of us want you?

Thus talks cannot take place, because all you want and will accept is soverienty before hand,

I am new to this site. So hi all. I been watching the argentina argument and latin american arguments in amusement as they have created a whole mess which they are completely unaware of. The C24 decolonisation committee have stated that the Falklanders are an implanted population by conquest and have therefore no rights; this has been backed up by members of Mercours, Celac etc. So using the C24 and argentinias argument as basis of negotation, Patagonia must be returned to its original inhabitants...the current population has no rights or say in what happens by the way. Chile will have to give up Araucania, Brazil, Paraguay and Chile will have to cede provinces to Bolivia...nobody living there has no rights. So if we use the C24 and argentininas argument to its logical conclusion, the whole of South America will have to be re-drawn with several major countires losing significant provinces.

@69 Falklanders use to have very strong ties with argentina and used to go to college there. Now did Falklanders destroy these links or did Argentina. I think you find Argentina did. Now please explain why you think the Falklanders are Flak-slum-lands. As far as I am aware there are no slums in Falklands, in fact they enjoy a higher standard of life than a lot of other places, encluding I may add parts of the United Kingdom. There is money to buiold a decent community college but for a population of 3000 it is currently economically unviable to build one. It is cheaper to fly them to the United Kingdom to continue their education there. So your getting economical and social factors a little confused.
As for everyone who reads the Merocpress is a shite whole, again I disagree, as there is a wide ranging and healthy debate on many subjects on this site, the fact you are a member of this site suggests that you are obviously placing yourself in this “shit hole” category?

But if the case Falklanders V argentina goes before the ICJ which is where the UK goverment is slowly manovering this case towards), it will be used as evidence in the case.

“”“That UN resolution, and your interpretation of it, are 50 years out of date.”“”


This should be ruddy obvious but it appears beyond the ken of many people that a resolution passed x decades ago can really have no legitimacy in todays world: these sort of resolutions requiring re-stating and re-issuing under a modern interpretation and, for that matter, law.

In this instance I very much doubt that any Argentine delegation would be allowed to get away with the outrageous lies it gave to the UN that went on to form the basis for a large number of these resolutions.

Put together it would seem inconceivable that the same resolutions would be passed without significant changes.... yet this is one further example of the hypocrisy of Argentina (in refusing to accept blame for the 1982 invasion and negation of any prior resolution) and the UN as a body for allowing such out-dated and legally-superceeded resolutions “stay on the books”.

It makes a mockery of the entire body.
80 nota (#) Mar 30th, 2013 - 10:04 pm Report abuse
No problem. To be honest I thought argentina and other countries would have picked it up due to the legal precedent it would create. The way I read it, if Bolivia wins, theyy can legally challenge Peru, Brasil, Paraguay etc for the formers provinces to be returned. This then leaves Argentina to challenge the UK, but also be challenged in return for the provinces taken during the conquest of the desert. The huge ramifications of the case will be one of the reasons the ICJ will say no. This then creates a legal precedent against Argentina when the case goes before the ICJ, the UK (representing ther Falklanders), continuious habitation by the Falklanders, First settlement by the Uk dating back 1765. The fact that the Vernet requested British Permission to land and reported to the British on a regular basis is a tact acknowledgement of the British claim to the Islands, (rather like a tenant requesting permission from the land lord for works and adjustment to the house), the facts that only the military side of the argentinia colony was removed and not the civilian. The only thing argentina has going for it is for the two months (december 1832 to Jan 1833). However two months of continuous population against 150 years will be a case of case dismissed.

Hi and welcome,

'Patagonia must be returned to its original inhabitants'

Some indians have already tried this through the Argentine courts, and were told that they were really migrants to the area so could f*** o**. Argentina seems to hold the position that there were no settled indians in Patagonia prior to the Invasion.

I'm afraid, since you are new, you have not yet come to understand that not only are some Argentinians massive hypocrites, but they also don't take any notice of court verdicts which go against them.

Their plan seems to be a mixture of unchecked overfishing and seige (very peaceful, or so they claim), with an unhealthy amount of lying to stir up regional support ,if you can call 1000+ miles away as being in the same region (again very peaceful - not).

Hello @82. I am not exactly sure where Malvinas Argentina is and doesnt appear on any national or international map. I assume your talking about the Falkland Islands? If so please refer to the name that they are internationally known as. Even the UN in its documentation refers to them as The Falklands Islands, (Malvinas). Not Malvinas Argentina. To make overfishing legal in the Falklands would have to control the falkland islands...which argentina doe not. Getting guns into Falkalnds Islands will be very difficult as international airlines frown upon this. And how shooting penguins will keep the english away, I am not sure. Perhaps your very confused on this point.
You will find that shooting anyone even if they are illegal or not is still Murder. That will get you twenty five years plus in the UK. As your obviously spouting premeditated murder that is 40 years plus.
You can actually become american by applying for citzenship, Sir anthony Hopkins has done it for example. The same as people taking citzenship in this country. So hence not an alien race.

I heard on the news last week that president from bolivia evo morales decided to demand chile before the i. c. j., in relation to it's claim for acceding to the sea.
Many people in this forum know what i think about the idea of discussing the malvinas-falkland cause before the court. In fact, i debated in different oportunities with some people about arg.'s proposal of arbitration in 1884 and in 1888, which were rejected by the u. k., and about the u. k.'s idea of discussing the cases of the dependencies from the islands only, s. georgia and sandwich in 1947.
During my investigations about the historic and the legal aspects of this conflic, i had an interview with an ex professor of public international right from u. b. a. (university from buenos aires), and i asked her wether she thought that taking the case to the i. c. j. was a good idea, and she told me agreeded on that step.
However after 1947, there wasn't any other proposal of arbitration by none of the two nations. I have always thought that if none of the two parts proposes to give that step, is bacause perhaps neather arg. nor the u. k are sure of getting a positve result if the case is discussed before the court.
Anyway, beyond my thought, and beyond the omissions of both governments, i think that we all should wonder why can't we do the same than bolivia.
I think it's the only one way to finish with the u. k.'s hypocresy, every time it asks for the application of the right to self determination for this cause, when that right actually has never been applied for this case by the u. n., as it was for other colonial situations, due to the d. c. has always considered this case like a special colonial situation.
It's obvious and expectable that both governments tell just what is convenient for them, in reference to the historic and the legal aspects of this conflict, however, we must be intelligent, instead of buying so easily their propoganda like many people in this forum do.

General AssemblyResolution 2065 (XX) Question of the Falkland Islands/Malvinas has not been voided either by the war of 1982 or by a ruling from the United Nations. No UN member has applied to have it set aside. Therefore it is still in force.

Resolution 2065 sets the terms by which the dispute over sovereignty has to be decided between Argentina and the UK. These terms are no different now than they were in 1965. Any change can only be made with the approval of the General Assembly.

Temporary Provision #1 of the revised Constitution of the Argentina Nation (22 August 1994) states: -
Argentina ratifies its legitimate and imprescriptible sovereignty over (the South Atlantic islands....) as part of national territory. The recovery of the said territories and the full exercise of sovereignty, respecting the way of life of their inhabitants, constitute a pemanent and irrenunciable objective of the Argentine people.

The Constitution of the Falkland Islands was in turn revised in 1997 and 2008, when the term “colony” was dropped from the preamble.

Neither the revised constitution of Argentina nor the amended constitution of the Falkland Islands have any bearing on the terms of the dispute as defined in Resolution 2065.

#57 The British and Argentine Governments must decide what are the best interests of the islanders.

It is not a question of the “subjugation” of the population. It is a question of deciding the ownership of the territory.

Any interpretation 3. which are inconsistent with 1.& 2. or sets them aside are void. In addition the UK is the administrating County which reports to the C24 on the implementation of 1514 in the Falkland Islands, not Argentina, a third party interest only. In 1982 Argentina terminated negotiation

Nota Bene: Article 73 of the UN Treaty states:

Why are Argies arguing over what has already been settled,
Their is no problem or dispute,

The islanders have freely and democratically exercised their right to choose, and they have freely chosen to remain British,

The British being a democracy accepts this decision,

And once again its always a dictatorship that refuses the free will of others to choose, unless they choose to be argentine, they don’t exist,
So how childish and immature does that make Argentina,
How embarrassing and shameful does that make CFK,

Basically if they choose to be British, [they don’t exist]
But if they are forced to be argentine, CFK will accept them,

The UK government already has determined what is in our best interests, and that is for us to be asked what we want to do. We decide what is in our best interests and then tell the UK.
Argentina has no business at all in the matter. You don't have any way of knowing what is in our best interests, and therefore no way of protecting them.

And it is a question of 'subjugation' of a population. If the people who live in a territory unanimously reject a government imposed on them and resist it by whatever means, then you have no choice but to subjugate them by force. That's why you brought 10,000 troops with you the last time.
Our police keep order by the consent of the people; they don't carry guns, because that is part of our customs. We elect our own government, make our own laws, raise our own taxes and spend them how we choose. We educate our children in English and send them away to Britain to finish their education.

Unless you assume control over these things, you are not exercising sovereignty, UNLESS we become an overseas territory of Argentina, under a similar arrangement o the one we have with the UK. And that's never going to work, is it.
But the only way you'd get us to change what we do is at the point of a gun. Which is 'subjugation and domination by a foreign power', according to the UN.

You haven't thought this through properly. You have no way to get what you want.

@20,34,90 Well, it seems you can “read”, or at least copy. The problem seems to be your comprehension. Let's go with some “simplicities”. Resolution 2065 does say “Peoples”. But then, if you comprehend, that's because it's the NAME of the Committee. Then, of course, the “Committee” is not entitled to “interpret” the charter. Nor is it entitled to determine who are, or are not, “peoples”. But, in any event, you should have regard to Article 76 of the UN Charter. Then, 2065 alludes to 1514 (XV). But Britain didn't sign 1514. You can't force a nation/member to comply with a resolution it didn't sign up to in the first place. And, finally, all UN General Assembly resolutions are NON-BINDING. They are “advisory” only. They represent what the GA would like. And it is doubtful if the GA would have passed the resolution had they been told how many lies argieland told.
And so we come to your assertions @90. You seem to be under the impression that UN GA resolutions are international law. They aren't. As I have already pointed out. They don't have to be “set aside”. Compliance is voluntary. The “terms” by which the “dispute” can be settled are therefore irrelevant. The ONLY body with the authority to set any “terms of settlement” is the Security Council. Whose resolutions ARE binding. But argieland just ignored one of those, didn't it? What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. See how easy it is to destroy your contentions? And, on the subject of international law, there is a handy international legal principle. It says that territory or property held at the end of a conflict is the property of the possessor. That is GAME, SET and MATCH. And whether you accept it or not is also irrelevant. So get used to it!

@41 How much they are worth is, to some extent, irrelevant. They are, effectively, stolen. Probably what would be termed “proceeds of crime”. You need to research how the Kirchners enabled large amounts of public land to be sold at rock-bottom prices. And then bought the land themselves. You can also research how a large amount of public money in Santa Fe province went “missing” whilst Papa Kirchner was the governor.
@43 It's Sussie. Don't you recognise her?
@54 Please! They are not “a people”. By their own definition, they are an “implanted population”. It's why they speak a European language.
@61 You misstate the situation. Although it's easy to do with argie numpties around. The fact is that, using the definitions that argies try to use, most of the populations of South America would have to leave. What, exactly, are those populations made up of? Germans, Italians, Portuguese, Spaniards, Welsh and so on. Argieland, for example, is 97% European. There's 97% that needs to leave! Brazil is 47.73% European. Chile is much better, only 30% European. Peru may be the best. Possibly only 11.6% European. That means than, averaged out, over 46% of those four populations need to leave.
@74 Don't be sorry. P-H is a numpty. Has he mentioned his 100% argie-built nuclear defence program yet? Besides, Malvinas Argentinas is in Cordoba Province. I think there may be as many as 3 lakes.
@80 There's a very simple legal principle that could already be used. Uti possidetis. Territory and property in the possession of one of the parties to a conflict, at the end of the conflict, remain the property of the possessor.

As no other Argentine has bothered to answer you, I'll make an intent:

1) The Argentine (mis)government should firstly forget about the Falkland Islands.
2) The Argentine (mis)government should start to take notice of what the Argentine people have massively demanded:

a) Solution to the dying economy
b) Solution to rising street crime
c) Solution to ridsing unmployment
d) Solution to lack of LNG for winter
e) Solution to the lack of investment in Argentine companies
f) A stop to confrontational politics
g) A return to the real world instead of the dream world of CFK's “relato”.

There are any number of groups of people who may or may not be worse off than us Falkland Islanders. Although the record shows that Falkland Islanders are an extremely charitable bunch, that doesn't mean that we're going to give away all of our money (or whichever amount of it you would like to see) to every worse-off group. You must be crazed with envy to even suggest it.

You came on here, I THINK, within the last twelve months and your view at the beginning was that the Falkland Islanders are completely owned AND governed by the UK. Your response to this post will most likely be that this is still the case. Except of course, you want to drain us of our wealth so things mustn't be quite how you say they are. Otherwise the UK would already be draining us of our wealth. If we ARE completely owned AND governed by the UK, as you would like, why AREN'T the UK Gov't draining us of our wealth?

The answer of course, which makes you even more bitter, is that we are actually free to govern ourselves, create our own wealth and make our own decisions. Decisions within reason of course. After all we owe a great deal to the UK and we have always said we will, one day, repay what we can. Something you won't acknowledge. These days you seem to acknowledge that we are able to make many of our governance decisions ourselves.

That's not good enough for you though is it? Well guess what? That's tough for you. Luckily the UK Gov't doesn't see it your way. Luckily the vast majority of the UK's population doesn't see it your way. And, the bit that lets me sleep, not a single SAMA82 vet I've ever spoken to sees it your way. You're not a SAMA82 vet so you couldn't be expected to know what they went through but I've never spoken to ANY other service man or woman who sees it your way. So fill your boots mate.

International law's view of territorial claims based on proximity

Under the Palmas decision, three important rules for resolving island territorial disputes were decided:
Firstly, title based on contiguity has no standing in international law.

The Falklands/Malvinas Case Breaking the Deadlock in the Anglo-Argentine...
By Roberto C. Laver


International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the North Sea continental shelf cases, in which Denmark and the Netherlands based their claim inter alia on the doctrine of proximity, i.e., that the part of the continental shelf closest to the part of the state in question falls automatically under that state's jurisdiction. In these cases the ICJ rejected any contiguity type of approach. As for continuity, it is argued, the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Continental Shelf and Contiguous Zone, Article 1, now contained in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands had their own “continental shelves,”

As for the wealth being “yours” I disagree because it's “ours”, a view also held by the UK Government. Like them, I have no doubts about UK's sovereignty over the Islands so I'm really looking forward to the creation of that “Sovereign Wealth Fund” as a home for the revenue.

'Stand up for the Falklands - I am pleased to be able to tell Peter Flynn (letter, 27 March) that the general view is that we could actually defend the Falkland Islands.
'The Argentine armed forces are in such a hopeless state that if they tried to stage another invasion we would have ample time to get a T45 destroyer and an Astute class submarine in place. Given good luck the destroyer could bring down the entire Fuerza Aerea Argentina in a single salvo, and the Astute could follow up with conventional land-attack missiles to obliterate the airfields the attacks came from.
It is my guess that the Argentine government are well aware of this, and will restrain their actions to the windy rhetoric and economic bullying of a small and peaceful neighbour that they are currently indulging in.
Which is perhaps just as well if there are many people like Mr Flynn who believe that we should sell out a small and peaceful population against their democratically expressed wishes, in the interests of a quiet life.'

The second article made little sense,

Perhaps the brits should show Argentina,
What the Americans are showing North Korea,

Although we don’t have the same aircraft,
We could do an exercise in the Falklands, involving subs, and destroyers,
As a warning.

@90. Post Scriptum:

”General AssemblyResolution 2065 (XX) Question of the Falkland Islands/Malvinas has not been voided either by the war of 1982 or by a ruling from the United Nations. No UN member has applied to have it set aside. Therefore it is still in force.”

Except that Resolution 2065 invited the Governments of Argentina & the UK to negotiate to find a PEACEFUL solution, but Argentina terminated these peaceful negotiations because the Junta would not agree to bear in mind the provisions & objectives of the UN Charter & UN Resolution 1514 which cover the case of the Falkland Islands (Malvinas)

Argentina broke the PEACE, chose war by force of arms to settle the dispute & unlawfully disregarded UN Security Council Resolution 502

The Falkland Islanders & the UK invoked their right to self-defense under Article 51 of the UN Charter, captured the defeated Argentine invasion force & retained full sovereignty under the principle uti possidetis, ita possideatis

The fact is Argentina terminated peaceful negotiations & failed to secure its claims by force; now the world has moved on a long way since 1982

Dr. Hayes correctly observes Argentina has not moved on but still persists in the direct political & economic persecution of Islanders

If Argentina wishes to dispute the status quo Argentina is free to make a claim at the UN International Court of Justice, but would risk losing due to extinct prescription, uti possidetis & the fact that the UN Charter governs this issue and is not retroactive before October 1945, so the territorial integrity of the member states as of 1945 is what prevails, i.e. the UK's sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Sandwich Islands & surrounding maritime spaces

Right now the Falkland Islanders are determining for themselves their chosen future, which is free association with the UK as a British Overseas Territory. The British shall support them in their choices and defend them from Argentine aggression

End of story

The money is well accounted for now. It's already sitting there for all to see. Why hasn't the UK Gov't taken it yet?

The results of your nonsensical bet will not be possible to judge. Like I said: we are going to pay the UK money when we decide the time is right. What I WILL bet you is that the money in the fund right now is about to be spent and not given to the UK.

At least we agree on one thing. I have no doubt about UK sovereignty of the Falklands and neither do the rest of us because it is our choice to have it that way. If and when we choose to change the status quo we have no doubt about our liberty to make that choice.

I find your campaign to support veterans a laudable one but take my advice. Don't hold out for money from the Falklands if you really want to assist them.

'He' seems to spout the same selfish crap that George Galloway comes out with, basically trying to buy off people from the UK from doing the right thing. The only problem is that the Falklands does not really affect South American trade. Argentina screws everyone over.

I think Think does rather well with him overall though, so I assume he is (very) vaguely based on someone British Think has served with in a UN mission.

Well, I say served. Think probably made the tea, which is why he is so bitter towards the British.

It is quite funny when Think makes really poor mistakes though. I missed his little one man chats after Timmerman visited the UN and he was too embarassed to turn up on here.

Never mind, you will remain a poor never was, just like Argentina.

As for the thread, yup more stupid stunts from the desperately failing (and flailing) Argentine government.

It's like the Japanese celebrating the attack on Pearl Harbour or Nanking. It's like the Germans celebrating the attack on Czechoslovakia and Poland.

Celebrating the start of wars that they lost, whilst at the same time 'claiming' that they didn't support the war in any way whatsoever.

The world sees Argentina for the National Socialist hypocrites that you are.

The Falklands will never be Argentine, but then the Argentine government doesn't actually want the islands. I mean, who would they use as an excuse or a distraction to their bad governance and corruption?

It matters not what Argentina thinks or for that matter what THINK is saying the cold hard facts are that the Islanders have told the world that they do exist, Get used to it THINK because your frustrated whinging is having no effect at all. If it ever came about that Islanders were told they had to give up their birth place then by the same token Argentina would have to do exactly the same because THINK your people were indeed squatters on someone else's land.

Sounds hard I know but your shouting about something you appear to know very little about. That is of course Human rights and Democracy. Something your parents forgot to include when they made you I guess.

I doubt you will come back with a sensible answer because I have noticed that in almost every case I have commented about you there has been silence and the reason being that I am a Falkland Islander to whom you cannot tolerate outsmarting you.

When you have the guts to return and live in Argentina then maybe you will begin to really understand just how those oppressed people are living. It is not a pretty site and you know it.
Poverty is something we Islanders do not have and you also know that but the problem is you cant and wont accept it because you think we do not actually exist.

And let us not forget that the current administration officially sanctioned the Junta's Hail Mary move to not just continue their regime but expand it on new people who have never had anything to do with AR with a 2 ARS coin while at the same time revoking pseudo amnesty on select junta members who should have been jailed years ago.

If Think spent as much time looking at the future and less on raking up the past maybe think would have a better life. The past is a time line of events that one is supposed to learn from to avoid making the same mistakes again. Lucky for me and most Falkland Islanders the mistakes concerning our homeland happened long before we were born. We are only interested in looking forward and that is what we are doing and if Think believes that trying to use past history to make a claim the think has even more learning to do. Fact is Think has not actually included all Falkland History in the argument only those two moments when Argentina tried to possess the Islands. But we have got used to Argentina and that issue because the poor devils were never educated prior to or beyond that period.

As you well know, it was intended in a colloquial sense, meaning that you are guilty of something & are trying to divert attention away from what you have done by doing too much protesting.
And you knew this, Think.
You are a past master at diverting subjects that you cannot answer because you will be proved to be wrong.
So, the moot question is, sr slippery one, did you post #202 on this thread?
You are definitely a suspect, Thinkus horrobilus.

“@202 I can't speak for Sr Think but I'm sat in the conservatory with a cup of coffee, glancing occasionally at the coming and goings in the harbour, looking forward to a G&T with my old comrades at the Legion at lunchtime and reading this.....”

I'm note sure how this works in the rest of the UK, but in my own neck of the woods, just about the last place I would expect to find a former senior officer of the RN enjoying a lunchtime G&T with his old comrades, would be in the British Legion.

Your quote is a misrepresentation from Hamlet ACT 111 scene 2 and said by Hamlet's mother Queen Gertrude.
“The lady doth protest too much, methinks”

No dahling, I did not post #202 on this thread......

Some of you seem to be a bit confused because Mr. Doveoverdover and I evidently share some characteristics and have a similar sense of humour......

But so do you and Sussie......;-)

@246 You and your “friends” really shouldn't let yourselves be fooled into thinking that Sr Think and I are the same person. He has no public doubts about Argentinian sovereignty over the Malvinas whereas I have no doubts about British sovereignty over the Falklands whatsoever. You and they clearly harbour a great many doubts about both of these positions, rightly in his case but ungratefully rebellious in mine.

@249 Think,
Ah, our good old friend, Sussie.
l though she was your sister? no? lol.
Sussie is some poor retarded homeless waif, who the Argentine Secret Service wind up just to see what type of damage she/he can do.
Probably now gets a place to sleep & 2 meals a day from her/his handlers.
Better than starving & living in cardboard boxes.

Your comparisons do not bother me dear Think.
l think l have worked out both Sussie & you.
You are far more the dangerous of the two, with your ingrained lies.
Such a pity, your talents could have been put to a much more profitable use.
Sussie is nothing, l rarely answer her/him/them/it anymore.
l still maintain that she(?)is retarded/backward & being taken advantage of.
While you yourself are an out & out liar & hate us Brits with a passion.
Whatever your reasons, & l care not, be rest assured that the failed rogue state that you have hitched your wagon to, will NEVER get the Falklands.
And that too is a great pity that you have failed to make it in the modern world , because Argentina has such potential & could be the showcase of South America & a great place to live.
As it is, you are on a downward spiral to lower than Africa.
And its ALL your OWN doing.

@258 He's told you many many times. He doesn't hate us Brits he hates us being in possession of territory in the Southern Hemisphere. He's not a racist or a nationalist, he's a socialist-geographer with hemispheric apartheid tendencies. Try to forgive him, there are worse things to be - blinkered ungrateful colonist springs readily to mind.

The way you write “Return the Islands” is nonsense. It should be in the singular: Martín García is only one island, and that's the one that needs returning.

270 Brazilian

And what will that do for you that a non-nuclear sub could do?

I take it you know something about nuclear powered submarines then?

I suspect not though, whereas advanced ones are among the quietest possible vessels, the one Brasil is getting will not be latest generation and may well kettle louder than a good diesel sub, ala the Ausralian subs and so much cheaper to build and operate.

I understood from a government minister that the reason they are getting the subs is to take charge of the nuclear technology for peaceful purposes such as generation. Sounds like bullshit to me because many countries will build you advanced nuclear generation reactors far cheaper than the subs!
