    - Very moving message. At this moment all the news channels are broadcasting Malvinas Athem sang live by veterans. It is midnight here. Now April 2.

    .....“Twenty eight years after the war, the Falkland Islands are a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom with the inalienable right to determine our own future.”......

    - We don't agree with that from this side.

    ....“It is appropriate that, on this day, we should re-emphasise our wish to seek peaceful co-operation with our neighbours as full participating members of the South Atlantic community”......

    - We think that is not the wish of UK.

    .......“working with each other to ensure that never again will the tragedy of 1982 be repeated.”.......

    - That responsibility is in your hands too!

    This is our goal:

    The loss of life was down to Argentine beligerence and they've never had the courage to apologise as they should. The one good thing that came out of 1982 is that the Falkland Islanders have become self determining and have the future in their own hands. Argentina lost all credibility and no longer has any say in the matter.

    What Argentina agrees with is unimportant, what Argentina thinks is unimportant. what Argentina's goals are are unimportant. In 1982 Argentina managed an own goal and they will now never be able to claim the islands. And that's good Jorge, it really is no problem for anyone except Argentina, and Britain doesn't give a damn.

    It seems to me you care a lot since you are every day here posting bullshit.
    I don't know where you live, but surely not in the islands, since there are many people there that despite not agreeing with our claim recognize there is a conflict/problem and it must be solved through talking. However, you will post your crap over and over again saying there is no problem.
    BTW, you've never answered me, Why do you take time to reply me among others and read about this if you say there is no problem???? Seems it doesn't make sense. By replying me and reading about this, you are recognizing there is a problem.
    Sorry man, wishes have a limit. I wish I had 10 million of dolars, but I shoudn't rob a bank to get them.
    Islanders wish they had self-determination, but they shoudn't have it in another country's terretory.

    I'm only here to annoy you Jorgy boy ... and to remind you that your spurious version of history gives you no hope, your mistaken view of international law gives you no hope and your inability to recognise the reality of the situation today gives you no hope. The islanders have no problem with the status quo, the British have no problem with the status quo and only the Argentines appear to have any problem, and that Jorgy boy .... is your problem. :-)

    Some people never learn. They live in a bubble and they believe they know everything by posting here for a couple of month. Comments 2,4 and 5 are the proof. Arrogance mixed with ignorance, that's something bad for someone who believes to know what happens down here through media.
    Anyway, people without the luck of knowing that truth is relative.

    A lot of people died because of Argentine arrogance and an inability to learn Jorgy boy .... and yet they still live in the bubble of a spurious historical claim and believe they know it all ...

    Nothing is going to change Jorgey boy, remember that ..... nothing ! In 10 years you'll still be shouting “Pirates!”, and getting nowhere.

    No problem :-)

    Jorge - I have asked you before. Do your impotent and dimwitted postings on Mercopress really compensate for the fact that the Falklands are British and will always be so, unless the FIG say otherwise that is, and that the Islands are, in the eyes of all sane governments, British? Also - do your insane, arrogant, pathetic postings and lies here on these forums compensate for your not having a life or friends?;-)))))))

    And before you run off on one - you post here more than most others. As I have advised before. If you act in a mature manner, and stop your insults, you will be treated with more respect. Debate by all means - debate is why many come into these forums. I know that is the reason that I first came in. But trying to debate with you is like trying to discuss history with a parrot. Like you, the parrot may be able to repeat the words but it doesn't understand them.

    All the best

    Jorge ejaculated “Islanders wish they had self-determination, but they shoudn't have it in another country's terretory.”

    The Islanders don't need to wish for self-determination Jorge. Why should they as they already have it. It is enshrined in law. And they are not in another countries territory - they are in the Falklands which is their territory. For you to claim otherwise is for you to lie. Now grow up you little pirate.

    Some argentinians think that the citizens living in the Falkland Islands have the right of self determination. Following some views from “ Crítica” Newspaper:

    http://www.criticadigital.com/index.php?secc=nota&nid=40221

    “Las Malvinas no son Argentinas, son dos islas a 700km del continente. Con el criterio de la extension maritima, Irlanda seria Inglesa, Trinidad y Tobago Venezolana, las restantes islas del Caribe de los EEUU, las Filipinas de la India y hasta Australia de China y Japon de Korea. Los territorios se definen por la decision de sus habitantes. Las Malvinas van camino a ser un pais independiente, que es lo que debe ser.”

    - We don't agree with that from this side.

    Yeah, we don't really care what you agree with, the only thing that really matters is what Argentina can prove, which is a whole lot of nothing.

    All of you are disgusting, ignorants and pirates. If you believe that the status-quo will be always the same, that's fine, I can't take away your dreams.
    And for the guy who say that the only argument of Argentina was proximity, man, go to study!
    We are very confidence about this. We don't f*cking care what you think.
    We'll be in Malvinas again, meanwhile, I'll be toasting everytime UK is hit outside its borders. We don't need to make wars since Al-Qaeda will do the dirty work for us.
    Slowly, your country is going under like others like USA and a new world is being born. That's very good!!!!!
    We'll be there again!!!!! We'll come back!!!!!!!!!!
    Tu sangre soldado argentino no habrá sido derramada en vano!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jorge rubbed his two bran cells together and the resulting Exothermic reaction produced this:

    “We'll be there again!!!!! We'll come back!!!!!!!!!!”

    Could this be one of the most delayed come back concerts in history, not to mention how it is in direct contradiction to most of other Jihad Jorges statements like:

    “The Malvinas, were our Islands, still our Islands, and will be our Islands?”

    So I take it then by “returning”, at this moment in time they are not your Islands?

    I also find it Bizarre that you should say “returning” this implies that there is a an Argentine Falkland dispora, but since how could this dispora return, when it never left and formed the basis of todays vibrant culture and nation in the Falklands?

    thankfully most of your rants hold as about resonance as a fart on an a glacier, look forward seeing your face on the 200th anniversary of the creation of the Falklands nation, and them signing bilateral agreements with the independent states of Tierra Del Fuego, Patagonia and the Mapuche nation-The first sovereign international indigenous nation ever.

    Much more progressive and utopian than your Imperialist pipe dreams and your internet porn of choice-Al Queda!

    Did you rub your braincells together hard enough? I say again Jihad Jorge:

    “We'll be there again!!!!! We'll come back!!!!!!!!!!”

    Could this be one of the most delayed come back concerts in history, not to mention how it is in direct contradiction to most of other Jihad Jorges statements like:

    “The Malvinas, were our Islands, still our Islands, and will be our Islands?”

    So I take it then by “returning”, at this moment in time they are not your Islands?

    I also find it Bizarre that you should say “returning” this implies that there is a an Argentine Falkland dispora, but since how could this dispora return, when it never left and formed the basis of todays vibrant culture and nation in the Falklands?

    Your Right though on one thing Jorge the colonial Falklands won't reach 300, because A) they're no longer a colony, B) they will be independent by then, C) Argentina will be no more-Patagonia, Tierra Del Fuego, Chacos region, and Mapuche nation all free nation states.

    I see as well the usual insults, how boring, did Mummy not spank her little baby boy to sleep?
    it really does give a great insight into the minds of scummy teenagers in Argentina whose only physical contact with the opposite Sex is their mother making them breakfast.

    As I said Jorge come back when, your balls have dropped, you've had pint of lager and your actually able to answer said questions without squawking like a demented Parrot.

    Hey Jihad Jorge. Look at the map of the Falklands at the top of this report. Do you see the flag? Do you see the Union Flag at the top left of that flag? Doesn't it make your heart proud to see it. Great isn't it. Now who would want to spoil that flag by putting that silly light blue thing of yours on it?

    12 - Freemason, I wish my spanish was better, but from what I do understand it's nice to know that there are reasonable voices speaking in a language that Argentina can understand.

    Jorge! - “ ... May be The colonial Malvinas turns 200 years, but surely it won't reach 300...”

    I think you're right Jorgy boy ..... they'll have independence long before then. Imagine a seat at the UN and maybe membership of the Decolonisation Committee ..... pursuing self determination for Patagonia :-)

    Christopher UK - “ ... Look at the map of the Falklands at the top of this report. Do you see the flag? Do you see the Union Flag at the top left of that flag?

    Ohhh, you're claiming the air now??

    Don't tell me, but you discovered it first ... or inherited it on independence. Or was it that the French had it first, but then handed it to the spanish and all the time the nasty Brits were sampling it clandestinely (under a rock)? Or then again there may have been an agreement where the air was yours and yours alone but with secret clauses and not if it was 'adjacent' to someone else. Or was it because you got it when no-one else wanted it but you only had it for 2 months before you were pushed away by nasty airolonists? But it was yours 'because a pirate had said so .....oh yes, jorgy boy I can DO sarcasm .... :-)
