    Argentina and every country in the Americas, do not like or want any European colony in our continent . Like I said before Arg-UK old dispute over the islands is in the best interest of US gov. to get it resolved. So do not get jealous if you don't get any attention or visit....as a matter of fact get used to it.

    Why on earth do you think it's in the US interest to get involved over the Falkland islands? They have their own 'old' colonial situations and would not appreciate Britain getting involved in their affairs. They will stay well out of it. You will notice that on your Foreign Ministers recent visit to the US no mention was made of the Falkland Islands. Clinton's been put right.

    False hope is much the same as no hope :-)

    As for “...every country in the America's...” , ..... so what?
