    But they won't be visiting your so-called “republic”. IF they head down that way, they'll be visiting the democratic BRITISH Overseas Territory of the Falkland Islands. No need to get s**t on their shoes!

    Why do you argies argue abt the years 1833 ect, is it not true that Argentina did not even exist then, or am I dreaming, surely you can only claim anything from the day you become Argentina,
    In that case the Falklands existed long before you, and is in fact older than you, so you should show your elder respect, ??
    no doubt someone will tell me im wrong ok
