    Yes, April 2 is a day to remember a sad event, but it is also a day for optimism!
    I will keep the phrase “”it is worth while fighting for what belongs to us, and no matter how powerful the adversary is, if on our side is the truth, reason and justice“”.

    Yes Jorge, April 2 is a day of sadness for all, remembering and commemorating all those who lost ther lives for a cause. It is a day of reflection, the reason for looking optimistically into the future and that it will never happen again.

    Instead of believing to fight for something that belongs to you, how about defending your beliefs, way of life and integrity? How about recognising and coexisting with your fellow human beings?

    Things must be bad in Argentina if she's banging on about the Falklands this much. Wonder if she'll be able to sell those bonds?

    The most important word in your post above is 'IF' - the fact of the matter is that, in reference to the Falkland Islands, truth, reason and justice are NOT on your side and only a fool would say that they are.

    I heard Mrs. Kirchner speaking on Argentine TV and she did say very clearly that the Islanders should in no way fear about their welfare or way of life. She recognised that they have been in the Falklands for generations implying that they have full rights to their way of life. The issues are becoming clearer all the time. Argentina woud be prepared to recognise full rights to the Islanders on their land but wants to contest the exploitation of resources far beyond those borders as is happening with oil resources. I am all for negotiations as Argentina now seems to be offering full guarantees to the Islandres. . I am surprised that Mercopress seems to have missed out on that part of the Argentine President´s speech.

    There is nothing to negotiate Same,

    If Argentina recognised the Islanders' rights enshrined in international law she would be forced to drop her claim.

    You can read what you want into the Argentine recognition of the Islanders' “way of life” - it's even included in that odious provision in the latest constitution - but it is completely meaningless.

    Progress is progress and it is significant that Argentina begins to spell out what a possible solution to the South Atlantic soveignity conflict would look like. I have the impression that Argentina is into a development curve not unlike Brazil. It has had an important GDP growth over the last few years so that it would be a superficial reading to think that it is engaging in the Falklands issue because of a supposed crisis at home. The most reasonable response for UK and the Islanders would be to negotiate. To pretend there is no problem is to hide ones head in the sand.

    Same, the Argentine position has not changed in years. What is being said now is nothing new. The “way of life” thing is been in the Argentine constitution since 1994. If anyone has their heads in the sand it is Argentina who refuse to recognise the Falkland Islanders' right to self determination.

    What is there to negotiate?

    Same “The most reasonable response for UK and the Islanders would be to negotiate. To pretend there is no problem is to hide ones head in the sand.”
    Argenitina would never negotiate with the Islanders because to do so would be to recognise their rights to Self Determination. Argentina only wants to negotiate with the UK, and the UK can't negotiate for the Islanders without their permission as they are a self governing territory and to do so would be illegal under UK law.

    Same - just because Argentina claims the Falklands doesn't make that claim legitimate. Given that it is a spurious claim, why should the UK and the FIG give into it? Simply saying, by Argentina, that the Falklands are Argentine doesn't make it a factual statement. Their claim has no validity and therefore there is nothing to discuss. It would be like you being forced to sit down and give away your house just because I laid claim to it - even though my claim had no legitimacy. Would you think it fair if you were forced to surrender your house to me just because I said it was mine? Would you feel it OK if, whilst taking your house, people said - but he will still allow you to live in it. This would be the position you would be putting the Falkland Islanders. Argentina has ZERO claim to the Falklands - remember also that Argentina is a country that was built upon land forcefully taken from its indigenous population. Look up the Conquest of the Desert. Argentina is trying to force a colonial situation upon the Islands and that is immoral.

    To say there is no dispute between UK, FIG and Argentina about sovereignity in the South Atlantic is a denial of history and reality. The so called right to self determination by FIG in no way implies laying claim to whatever resource comes to mind. International law recognises the problem and that is the sense of UN resolutions calling for a negotiated solution. Insulting one another gets nowhere. The UK should also listen to English speaking people in Argentina, the majority British, who want a reasonable solution.

    Same, self determination for the Falkland Islanders is not a “so called” right. It is clearly and unambiguously enshrined in international law, the UN Charter and several UN Security Council and General Assembly Resolutions - some of them specifically referring to the Falkland Islands. The Resolutions which call upon the UK and Argentina to resolve their differences regarding sovereignty ALL reference the right to self determination. Argentina is simply ignoring her responsibility to recognise that right.

    Argentina's long-standing position is that it will only negotiate the transfer of sovereignty. How can that be reasonable? The most reasonable solution would be for Argentina to drop her irredentist claim. And why should the UK listen to English-speaking Argentines any more than German-speaking, Italian-speaking or Spanish-speaking Argentines? If you want this problem to go away then why not lobby your government to understand its international obligations and recognise the Islanders rights?

    You are really a case. Do you?
    The links you’ve provided as your proof of what would be how you said... Ah Yes “Argieland” was a video made in 2001 during the financial crisis and the collapse of the Argentina’s economy by a left win politician film maker to show his point about how bad is capitalism.

    Thing that you will understand quickly if UK continues in the current path to collapse.
    Because UK is in the stage of Argentina 1989 I mean before the collapse.
    If the collapse happen knowing UK you will have riots in the streets and people killing each other for a piece of bread.

    I really hope you don’t have to experience this really.

    Take a look of how UK without the entire collapse of it economy the social problems had started.

    You didn’t won a war just a battle that’s all the score is still 2 Argies 1 Brits. Like in football UK is always begin Argentina.

    Remembers always this, a war against Argentina would not be a picnic or free of consequences for UK and the Islanders you can loose. Or even worse the conflict can escalate in the region with the intervention of countries like Venezuela hungry for a show up of its military power.

    And believe me a good stock of Russian weapons is in the hands of Venezuela and the Russians also will be very glad to supply Argentina any time.

    This is very silly grow up fellows what are you afraid of?

    Anyway for those like me that see that insulting each other will not contribute to nothing positive I will try to show you the normal Argentina that I see every day here in Buenos Aires (Sorry but is where I live now what can I do?)

    Argentines are tolerant people and a multicultural society with a lot interest in others cultures, music, dance sports, travelling, friendship and all these kind of things that make life a wonderful thing.
    Religion is no a issue in Argentina you can profess freely whatever you like and in fact Argentinean really don’t pay to much attention to that. Many express themselves as a catholic but I really doubt that they have been more than 2 times in a church in their entire life is more to have something to believe.

    As the majority of Argentinean around 97% (according with statistics) are descendents of someone that came here from another country the majority from Europe and more recently from neighboring countries, diversity is part of the landscape.

    The say that Argentineans are a monolithic Spanish culture is another lie. Argentina has influence from several countries and you can appreciate that in its architecture and its cuisine. Older part seem a Spanish period domination, then French/Italian (palace and building) British bridges and railways system with stations looking like French. The food is amazing from all over the world. Germans also are a big community and Celts. A lot of Chilean, Uruguayans, Bolivians, Brazilians and Paraguayan live in Argentina too.

    Jorge ejaculated “You know what the difference is between your videos and mines???
    You cannot show Argentina invading other countries, torturing other societys or stealing their resources.”

    Oh dear, touched a nerve have we. Look to your own history you silly boy. You do make me laugh - not with you of course, but at you.

    Look at back at your dear friend Jorge's posts and then you will have an understanding as to why he gets the responses he does. They are made in kind and then only after having tried to reason with him for months. He gets what he deserves.

    In reality - we Brits enjoy a lot of Argentinean culture. In fact there is to be a festival in July at Kings Place in London. This concert is but part of that festival celebrating Argentinean culture. Those that are due to march against the UK today in Argentina might care to see just how fair we are towards your country.

    AFTER 28 YEARS.

    After all these years, what most us feel is such a great sadness, it's not easy to assimilate yet what happened in 1982, that day changed for good the destiny of argentina and the islands's.
    It's not easy to recognize that if the war woulden't have happened, my country woulden't have recovered the democracy so soon, and the islands wouden't be so prosperous like they are now.
    That repugnant dictatorship played in such a corrupter and perverse way with the wish of recovering the malvinas-falklands, that idea has allways been in the minds of most argentines, and now in the same perverse and corrupter way, the british press is shaking the ghost of a new invation by argentina, anyway i think that the islanders are not going to be so idiot and ignorant to beleive that.
    The balance of all these years has many dark and clear sides, our country is totally diferent than it was in 1982, we have many debts with our people, but the democracy is the only one way to govern and live, i am sure that before i die, we will find a fair solution for to the coflict, i'm 28 years old, i'm young, i have a lot to live yet, and maybe i see changes between both sides to improve our situation.

    Yeah I know it is also difficult for us to say “I'm 27 years old” and not “ I have 27 years old”. That verb “to be” which has two meanings in spanish (ser ó estar) is a big problem.

    Jorge. You insulted evey victim of Al-Qaeda and describe the deaths of those on 9/11 (including the Argentines) as collateral damage. You take the biscuit in the insult stakes.

    BTW your president apears to be doing nothing but talking and shouting and is consitently using the Falkland Islands for her own political security. Your Junta tried the same thing which resulted in over 600 Argentine military personel dying for a murderous corrupt dictator. The ones who survived have since been largely abandoned by subseqent leadership.

    Your president couldn't lead a booze up in a brewery, but she is certainly good as mismanaging an economy. Anybody care to receive some bonds that are likley to be defaulted?

    You know where the Islands are. If you want them come and get them. You won't because you can't.

    Jihad Jorge has indicated that Argentina is a good place to invest. I certainly hope is it as they are going to need all the help they can get now the Chinese have decided that Argentine soya bean oil is not up to scratch. Those individuals who live in the shanty towns surrounding BA certainly need all the help they can get and thier lot will certainly not be helped by Argentina's biggest export being given the cold shoulder by the biggest soya bean importer in the world.

    It also looks like Brazil are more than happy to provide the Chinese with the quality of soya-oil that Argentina cannot deliver. This indicates, that although regional leaders with a limited mandate can claim to support Argentina in its supposed claim to the Falkland Islands, in reality they are more than happy to see Argentina hurt so they can take the business opportunity for their benefit. Nice to have such good friends Jorge. Neighbours who will shout in an open forum and not put their intentions down on paper and stab you in the back at the first opportunity.

    Perhaps if your excuse for a leadership focused on important things that will actually make a difference for the hard pressed Argentines then your country would attract real investment worthy of note.

    I doubt those living in a shanty town give a toss about the Falkland Islands. They are probably more concerend with, food, clean water, security, healthcare and education. Just like your veterans from the Falkland war, your goverment has abandoned its own citizens (except when it wants their votes then it is bribes all round).

    .......“No British soldiers liberated a small island community from a despotic and corrupt military regime, whose preferred method of dealing with political dissent involved throwing people out of the back of a plane over the South Atlantic sans parachute.”......

    - British soldiers didn't liberate anything, they just couldn't put up with a third-world nation like Argentina gets into its own terretory without asking permission to the old imperial power.

    ........“The only nation interested in colonialism is Argentina these days, everyone else is getting on with life, while Argentina bleats on about how it could have been a contender.”......

    .......“Neighbours who will shout in an open forum and not put their intentions down on paper and stab you in the back at the first opportunity.”.......

    - Most of commonwealth countries (not all of them) support the unreal, false, contrived and spurious “self-determination of islanders” but when it comes to business they could easily change, examples of that are caribean English speaking countries that never before supported argentine claim and they are backing us!!!
    They have no power to make UK change its behaviour regarding international law since UK only understand the law of weapons and wars.
    Anyway, if Argentina offered something that were very interesting to Australia or New Zealand, they surely would change its possition with regard to Malvinas. Again, this is all about business, this world works that way, it took some time for me to understand it.

    ......“Perhaps if your excuse for a leadership focused on important things that will actually make a difference for the hard pressed Argentines then your country would attract real investment worthy of note.”......

    - We were the country with more foreign investment during 90's and the claim for Malvinas was there very healthy, indeed, during 90's the claim was stamped in our constitucion and nothing has changed for investors. You seem to ignore that investors don't care those kind of claims, they only care their business, that's why Argentina bans fisheries companies with pirate permissions to fish in the sea controlled by us. Those companies don't care the claim but its money. So, if you want to fish in Malvinas with pirate permission, that's fine, but you won't get permission to do it here. If you are an intelligent investor, you would preffer to do it in the argentine zone which is much extense and much more profitable and in future you could ask for services in our ports.

    - Partially true. Food, clean water, security, healthcare and education are urgent needs for many argentines, they don't have the opportunity to enjoy the net as I do. What you say crashs with the typical argument of your country that states “”argentine governments claim Malvinas to divert people's attention from other issues“”. You said it!. Many, I would say most of us have many other concerns much more important than a couple of islands, but that doesn't mean we can't still claim them. Governments cannot divert people's attention with Malvinas issues, that have happened before in the dictatorship, will never again!!!!!

    .....”Just like your veterans from the Falkland war, your goverment has abandoned its own citizens (except when it wants their votes then it is bribes all round).“......

    - Now you are treating our veterans as stupids who cannot think by themselves and vote according to their will.
    Anyway, I suggest you to start looking at your current country's issues. There are as never before there, people without healthcare and affordable housing, many gang bands and violence is increasing. What economic and social argentine history was so far, could become yours.

    ........”Carry on Jorge.”........
