    Ms Fernández, or her successor, is likely to lead Argentina back to more normal relations with the outside world......
    Then I hope that Argentina recognises the Falklands as British, and then gets on with building a future with Argentina setting new standards,

    Argentina's government will never recognize the Falklands as British, just like the P.A. will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state, or the Serbian government will never recognize the independence of Kosovo, or the Iranian government will never recognize the Zionist government of Israel. If Argentina's government recognizes the islands as British, that will mean the end of Cristina's government, because 38.000.000 Argentines are convinced that those islands belong to Argentina. There are people who don't care or think the islands are British, I'm one of those people. But maybe we're wrong, maybe those islands effectively belong to Argentina. 38.000.000 people can't be wrong. Or Can They? I should think about it.

    There was a time when the majority of people were convinced the world was flat, and scoffed at anyone who suggested this was incorrect, so yes, 38,000,000 people can be wrong.

    thats true, goverments come and go. But as long as britain is willing to defend the falklands, and we are able to do this, this then will be the result for many years to come .
