    What a biased statement of facts Mercopress! It seems that you are leaving many things outside... And the UK statement you quote was not a reply according to UN sources! This is a clear proof of who finances this “independent” news agency!

    “No effort should be spared to fulfil the dream of all peoples to self-determination” Ms Miculescu said, was the message to the Fourth Committee of the United Nations.

    So......any doubts ????? Has any one of the UN C4 heard the wishes of those that are living on the islands for up to 9th generation ??? Has been indigenous population displaced from the island that can argue for their rigths against those living there today ???

    No other claims or rules matter when self determination of the people is involved......Please, hear them....

    And..... Argentina continental shelf ???? 350 miles away from its coast ??? May be South Africa has to take care because the continental shelf could reach its coast too !!!!

    Mr. Errazuriz has made a mistake forgetting those principles whe he made his speech.....

    There was no indigenous population in 1833. Just some settlers with British permission, and a garrison that did not have British permission.

    The latter was asked to leave.

    Seems fair enough.

    As for geography .... it's irrelevant. Remember!

    Yes, but Alejandro “response” might mean the same thing as “reply”, but you used “reply” and it's not in the article. It just shows that you are not bothered about detail and facts (and that you're just a little paranoid).

    Well said Sergio. When it comes to self determination everything else is irrelevant. Nothing can limit the right to self determination. The Falkland Islanders have the right to self determination according to the UN Charter. Argentina ratified that same Charter. What is Argentina's problem? Can't Argentina stick to any agreements at all?

    It is sheer nonsense for Chile's Government to be promoting Argentina's senile colonialism in the UN's bla, bla “Decolonization” Committee . Why on earth FIG & FCO participate in such useless underdeveloped exchanges?
    Why not defending the normal human rights of the Falkland Islanders for free circulation on the air and at sea instead? The right places would be, of course, the UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation, situated in Montreal, and the International Maritime Organisation, which is not far from the Foreign Office in London. Those two Organisations should be made aware of the constant “marranadas” perpetrated by backward Argentina against the free and peaceful Falkland Islanders.

    Interesting to note the way in which members of the United Nations refers always and every moment on the islands with his correct name Malvinas (in 17 opportunities in the official document of the UN)

    http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs//2011/gaspd478.doc.htm

    and instead ... there is only one mention in all document to Falkland Islands....of course UK is the only one that calls that way those islands.

    Is a clear indication of the position taken by the group of countries in a beautiful and harmonious phrase in the concert of nations ...MALVINAS ARGENTINAS.

    I dont think it is particularly interesting so_far. Your cronies are only abiding by your country's orders. You seem to fail to see that your cronies are pact into C24. So it is not particular interesting, it is just how it always is. But it is good to see that you are making every attempt to reassure yourself and your country's illegitimate claim. And by using your interpretation, I feel comfort that the UN refers to my home as the Falkland Islands and not to mention the EU too.

    Hypocrites and liars

    “Chile’s representative, on behalf of the Rio Group, urged resumption of negotiations regarding the Malvinas islands to find a peaceful and definitive solution as soon as possible to that dispute, as well as to the questions of sovereignty over South Georgia and South Sandwich islands and surrounding maritime areas.

    He further said that the actions of the United Kingdom in exploring and exploiting hydrocarbons in areas of the Argentine continental shelf ran counter to General Assembly resolution 31/49, which called on the parties to avoid unilateral modifications to the Territory before a resolution could be reached”

    “...Your cronies are only abiding by your country's orders..”

    a bit offensive from your side call all those LatAm friend countries that way....

    What about USA ?

    “Significantly, the resolution referred to the “Malvinas” Islands, and not the Falkland Islands, its official, internationally recognised name, another snub to the British position. Washington is acutely aware of the sensitivities involved in the use of “Malvinas”, and the British government launched an official protest over its use by a senior State Department official at a press conference..”

    Do you think Argentina have THAT power......to order USA how to call those islands ? even the Russians and Chinesse call Malvinas Islands.....

    hmm...come on, you can do better than that my dear squatter :)

    @5 “response” isn't there either, dickhead.

    Please note Romania’s Simona Mirela Miculescu, who currently holds the chair of the committee.

    “No effort should be spared to fulfil the dream of all peoples to self-determination”

    So Argentina's suggestion that the people of the Falkland Islands should not have self-determination is a load of bollox

    Also, a small matter of “uti possidetis”. Territory or property belongs to the party in possession at the end of a conflict. Weren't Britain and the Falkland Islanders in possession of the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands on 14 June 1982 when Argentina surrendered?

    marcos, we have never claimed to have inherited anything. You are the ones making that claim, not us.

    And you completely missed my point about hypocrisy. Which doesn't surprise me given the crap reading comprehension skills many malvinists like you have. In those days many countries got territories by means of conquest or subjugation or annexation. The UK did, France did, Spain did, Argentina did, the US did, etc did. Even the indigenous nations of the Americas, of Africa, of Asia were doing it both before and after the arrival of Europeans in their continents. Argentina's hypocrisy, and yours, does not lie in the fact that it conquered territory, as this was no different from what many other countries were doing at the time. No, Argentina's hypocrisy, and yours, lies in the fact that Argentina, and you, has continued to complain about lost territories even after it had joined the ranks of countries that had stolen territory that didn't belong to them.

    to 20 argentina has stolen territory that didnt belong to them david the clown??
    here comes the adulteration typical of britishssssssssss
    1.the territory was discovered by spain, although populated by natives
    Magallanes got there very south to the straight and to Malvinas too in 1500
    2. argentina was colonized by spain
    3. arg natives mixed with colonizators in gauchos, criollos, mulatos, mestizos, etc.
    4. got independnece from spanish colonizators.
    5. inherit the territory from spain.
    6.Arg dispute the territory in between ourselves (arg versus arg in Patagonia for ex) and with other neighbours all with native ascentry after all.
    Wich STOLEN TERRITORY?? if this continent its still habitated by natives and the mix Dont you get it yet???
    we are not the colonized people
    dont you understand that?????

    Happily, there never were any natives here, so none of the above applies to us.

    And you didn't inherit anything from Spain...''got independnece from spanish colonizators.'' That's right. We, however, did not.

    I read the text of the meeting and what was interesting was the studied neutrality of many of Argentina's 'friends', including China.
    Apart from that it was just the same old rubbish.....and you can all say it as often as you like.....the Falkland Islands are not an 'integral part of Argentina', and we do have the right to self determination if the UK says so, even by the Argentine definition.
    The idea of us all being forced to be Argentines or submit to some form of ethnic cleansing is unthinkable, and you all know it.

    ''we are not the colonized people'' I understand that very well. Neither are we. But we will be a 'colonised people' if you ever get your hands on the Falklands.

    They Are Just Excuses.
    Señor David, I say it again
    One would suppose that it would be accorded universally to those inhabitants by the UK government. The sad fate of the Chagos islanders proves otherwise.
    Stop hiding yourselves behind the non sense “Self determination” like little girls behind your mothers skirts.

    So are you saying that you, are indigenous to south America, yes/no
    Spain did not invade Argentina, because argentine did not exist in the 15th century,
    Now, technically
    About 150 million years ago, [ I think] was not south America joined to that part of Africa,
    Does you then claim Africa, via inheritances,
    But if technically you go back further, was not the whole planet one land mass,
    Through inheritances laws, does Argentina claim the whole planet,///
    Or is this just being silly,
    Just like Argentina claims on a piece of land you have never occupied or ruled or governed,

    _ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_invasions_of_the_R%C3%ADo_de_la_Plata



    The British invasions of the Río de la Plata were a series of unsuccessful British attempts to seize control of the Spanish colonies located around the La Plata Basin in South America (today part of Argentina and Uruguay). The invasions took place between 1806 and 1807, as part of the Napoleonic Wars, when Spain was an ally of France.
    .
    Main article: British invasions of the Río de la Plata
    Buenos Aires and Montevideo had successfully resisted two British invasions. The first one was in 1806, when a British army led by William Carr Beresford took control of Buenos Aires, until being defeated by an army from Montevideo, led by Santiago de Liniers. The following year a bigger army took Montevideo, but failed to take Buenos Aires, being forced to surrender and leave both cities. There was no Spanish aid from Europe either time, and to prepare for the second invasion Liniers formed militias with Criollos, despite regulations prohibiting this.[23] This gave them military power and political influence they did not have had before, with the biggest Criollo army being the Patricios Regiment led by Cornelio Saavedra. The victory achieved without help also boosted confidence on independence, by stating that the Spanish aid was not needed.[24] The prestige earned by Buenos Aires before the other cities of the viceroyalty was exploited by Juan José Paso during the open cabildo to justify taking an immediate action and hear the opinions of other cities afterwards.[25]

    Malen
    1) Discovery is irrelevant to the question of who has sovereignty now. And there never was an indigenous population in the Falklands, so that is irrelevant also.

    2. Part of Argentina was conquered and stolen by Spain, the other parts were conquered and stolen by Argentina. and never returned to the indigenous tribes.

    3 Does not change the facts

    4. By force without Spain’s consent

    5. Why are so many Argentines so ignorant of what an inheritance is? Inherited territory has to be given, not taken by force. Spain did not give Argentina any territory. Argentina took its territory by force from Spain. Argentina got its independence by force without Spain’s consent. Spain did not begin to relinquish any part of the America’s until 1836, and when it recognised argentine independence in 1859 it was simply recognising a fait accompli

    6. For fuck’s sake Malen, we are talking about stolen sovereignty, not about stolen land as private or tribal property. Argentina and Chile stole the sovereignty of The Pampa, Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego from their indigenous tribes. These are stolen territories. They were never under Spanish sovereignty. They were never conquered by Spain. They were invaded, conquered and annexed by Argentina and Chile AFTER INDEPENDENCE. The fact that the indigenous peoples of those territories now accept the situation doesn’t change the fact that they were stolen by Argentina and Chile in the 19th century. Learn the history of your country for fuck’s sake

    Part of Argentina was colonised by Spain, the other parts by Argentina. Sovereignty has never been returned to the indigenous peoples. So the indigenous peoples definitely are colonised

    Charles Darwin was in Malvinas in 1833 (just 2 months after possession by force by english officer) and 1834.... let´s see what he wrote In his book “The Voyage to Beagle”.

    1) Who inhabited the islands in 1833 ???? were british people ???

    “The absence of any species whatever in the whole class of Reptiles, is a marked feature in the zoology of this country, as well as in that of the Falkland Islands. I do not ground this statement merely on my own observation, but I heard it from the Spanish inhabitants of the latter place” Charles Darwin 1 Jun 1834

    www.infidels.org/library/historical/charles_darwin/voyage_of_beagle/Chapter11.html

    He also said the islands belonged to whom and for what purpose had.....

    “After the possession of these miserable islands had been contested by France Spain, and England, they were left uninhabited. The government of BUENOS AYRES then sold them to a private individual, but likewise used them, as old Spain had done before for a penal settlement” “England claimed her right an seized them”

    Remmber Darwin was there just 2 month after England seized the islands by force !!

    www.infidels.org/library/historical/charles_darwin/voyage_of_beagle/Chapter9.html

    I hope that help to understand that in Malvinas exist inhabitants in 1833.....they were Argentinean people living in peace and real and legal owners of the place.... and were expelled by force by Britain in evil way...FACT worldwide recognized.

    We all agree that Mr. Darwin is a respectable witness ..isn´t he ???

As you well know - we know you will never admit it - it is of course irrelevant to the Falkland Islands v Malvinas.
    It was good the see the C4 Chairperson sticking up for the key principal that is the bottom line.
    Natural to see the meaningless verbal support to you from Chile and Uruguay, so hope it gave you a “feel-good-factor”? We all know that they are just words dont we? Relations between Chile and the Islands are strong and firendly - and Falklands Flagged ships still visit Montevideo!

    con·quest Noun/ˈkänkwest/1. The subjugation and assumption of control of a place or people by use of military force.

    Which the UK hasn't done. The UK withdrew in 2009

    “Plans to exploit Iraq's oil reserves were discussed by government ministers and the world's largest oil companies the year before Britain took a leading role in invading Iraq, government documents show”

    we dont have to return nothing its already of all of us, including indigenous and its mixes
    3) changes all the facts..we were people different to colonizators so entitled to get independence, so not stole the sovereignity. returns
    4) Independence is necessarily by force when the colonized people is subjugated!!!! thats the way it usually happens or a you joking me??they didnt want to give us independence what did you expect us to do, to be all our life subjugated??
    5) yes we inheritated the soveregnity,came back to its real owners

    This is interesting. It is a precise description of how we feel towards Argentina. Do you expect us to be all our lives subjugated? Surely not.
    Or do you think we are subject to different rules because of where our ancestors came from?

    So Argentina belongs to the indigenous and mixed people of Argentina? So where does that leave all those 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th generation European immigrants? Especially the ones running your government. I don't see no mixed races in your government, Nester was the son of a Swiss German and a Nazi Croate, he wasn't mixed, neither is his wife, although she looks like she's been crossed with a worthog!

    So when we take into account Argentina's indigenous 7% and mixed population a max of 10% and mostly non Argentine recent immigrants, that's about 17% of the population. So what about the other 83%? Maybe they don't belong in Argentina. Either way Argentina has been colonised by Europeans, the culture of Argentina is European not Indian. Just as we call the American's colonials, you too are colonials with a transplanted European culture, like it or not. Wake up and smell the coffee.

    I agreed with the Iraq invasion on the grounds of removing the threat that Saddam Husain posed. But the truth is America had it's own interests at heart and Britain being America's lap dog was used. I am glad we got out when we did. Our Army was not beaten by insurgents. It was an unpopular war, the Blair government was beaten by the people. People in the UK don't like wars, unlike Argentina where even when you loose a war you can't stop talking about it. It was people power that got the UK out of Iraq. If we'd wanted to we could have plowed in more troops and spent more money but we don't have an endless supply of either, like the Americans. We do, however, happen to have a far stronger sense of what is right and wrong and a long tradition as the worlds oldest democracy too. We have never, for example, killed tens of thousands of our own people for political reasons for example.

    Mad'un - you cannot inherit something from a Country that couldn't cede any territory until after 1836. Spain's Constitution prevented that.

    Uti poosidetis juris wasn't proclaimed until the Lima Conference of 1848.

    You backdating it to 1810 don't make it so.

    No inheritance + no Uti = No Falklands!

    g) Asia
    h) America

    let me clarify that we are talking about millions and millions of deads......all of them KILLED by the policy of UK, your loved Great Britain.

    3) Di you hear about the expulsion of 2000 people in the archipelago Chaos....in 1966 ??? self determination doesn´t work for them ?? thats the double standard you defend ?

    I really do not know how to call you ............. insane ? unimpeachable ?

    i guess the correct word is only ignorant

    ...or the arabic decimal system.

    Irony.

    The colonisers of Argentina are magically cleansed of all sin, when they decide to become an independent nation, still sitting in the land they ripped from its native inhabitants.

    They magically acrue no sin, when they sally forth and steal land from other South American nations, despite in the case of Paraguay slaughtering 90% of the male population.

    And committed no sin in its genocidal “Conquest of the Desert”.

    And even now, they're busily inventing reasons why the Falklands War was not their fault as the dog ate their home work.

    Irony or hypocrisy, take your pick.

    You go on about the Chagos Islands, not out of compassion over the plight of those people but merely because you see it as a convenient stick to beat the British with. Hyprocritically you'd do exactly the same to the Falkland Islanders, as would have the FCO it has to be said.

    Oh and the interesting comment

    “Argentina's constitution explicitly states that you lot have all and necessary guarantees ”

    First of all “you lot”. Interesting use of words, clearly you don't identify or value the islanders as a people.

    “all and necessary guarantees” Interesting, because you really respected their rights when you marched in, you're respecting their rights when you attempt to impose economic sanctions.

    More hypocrisy, you criticise the islanders for not trusting you, not only is there the above but:

    Argentina unilaterally ripped up the oil agreement
    Argentina unilaterally ripped up the fishing agreement
    Argentina unilaterally stopped charter flights and tried to impose its own airline (FIG proposed open skies).

    Perhaps they don't trust you, as you don't behave in a manner that suggests you can be trusted.

    The current round of oil exploration was originally agreed with Argentina, till Argentina unilaterally withdrew - then you hypocritically blame the British for continuing to act unilaterally.

    All in all, a lot of hypocrisy.

    Ironic isn't it.

    60 Marcos Alejandro ------ We will pay when Argentina pays millions to the people who she disposed and killed in the past. Seems everyone will wait quite a while for that to happen seeing as Argentina and its Squatters who now live there seem to think it was their right to kill, injure to the point of genocide the natives in that land that is now known as Argentina. What a clown you are.

    Now lets get back to the matter in hand 60 Marcos Alejandro, sorry I mean more shit as lsolde says put up or shut up, WAR or COURT. Its Argentina's choice we don't mind. But to make it clear were I stand I prefer war seeing we have to eradicate vermin and make no mistake Argentina is vermin to quite a few countries including many countries in in the vicinity of Argentina.

    The whole world is heartedly sick and tired of the vermin whining about a few Islands that were never and never will be theirs and who would at the first chance it gets once more invade and course trouble. So I say lets finish once and for all and to hell what the rest of the world thinks of us because according to this Muppet and the rest of the vermin the world thinks very little of us anyway. I know they don't, but hell let the vermin think that if it gives them something more to whine about and us to laugh at.

    And lets face it if we did go to war the outcome is indisputable we would take casualties just like we did in 82 and like 82 we would bring democracy to the vermin but this time it would be proper democracy not some poor exuse for the one they have now

Do'oh!

    But hang on again, by complaining about unilateral acts, you therefore claim that someone is doing them right? Is Argentina therefore admitting that the FIG exists then haha contradiction alert!

    Your country MURDERED 50,000 (the ture figure is believed by most experts to be closer to about 240,000 or a quarter of a million) of its own people. YOUR OWN PEOPLE - MURDERED.

    You are incapable of saying how fascistic your government was from Peron 1 and 2, to the juntas, to Kirchner 1 & 2.

    Only tin pot dictatorships have dynasties rule them, with their claims on neighboring states and territories. Your country has a history of being a tin pot fascist dictatorship.

    The truth is fantazum, you are a fascist.

    Your country has been ruled by fascists since the 1930's. Your goose stepping military was drilled and trained by Nazi's. Nazi U-boats fled to your country after the war, with their loot, the Nazi's fled to the safety of your country. Under operation Condor they were used by your country to kill political dissidents, 3 decades after they finished their ETHNIC CLEANSING IN EUROPE.

    Your country harboured Nazi war criminals, protected them, gave them government and military jobs, houses and helped more flee.

    You do not get this history fantazum because you are part of it!

    The people of the Falkland Islands wish to live in peace in their own land away from the fear and intimidation of a country 40,000 times larger. They wish to be able to call their own land what they want, to be free to speak the language of their fathers and mothers, to be free to drive on the left side side of the road (FFS!), to be able to live on their own land, not to be called RACIST names like “Pirates”, etc.

    The fascistic Argentines like you fantazum make my blood boil. If I was to meet you face to face I would tear you apart limb by limb because fascists like you only pick on the weak. You invaded the Falklands in 1982 thinking that attacking a population of 1800 sheep farmers was easy picking. Try someone your own size you cowardly fascistic scum!

    Falkland Islanders probably may or may not have volunteered for the wars against the Indians as your previous post was 100% lie but if they did they would have done so under another flag. Hundreds of thousands of Irishmen and women volunteered for the British military or to work in British industry and shipping in WW2, while a dozen volunteered for Hitler's SS - neither meant that the Irish Free State was a participant in WW2 - these people did so on their own free will!

    Likewise Argenine's volunteered for both Germany and Britain in WW2, that didn't make Argentine a participant. But you did harbour Nazi's fleeing justice after the war!

    Britain was the first country to emancipate the slaves and enforced their ban on the slave trade internationally via the Royal Navy's patrols on the Atlantic slave trade. In that same Royal Navy blacks served alongside the British sailors as both sailors and marines, go to the National Maritime Museum website to check this.

    Britain's first black (African) regiment was The West India Regiment, raised in 1790.

    “British Petroleum and the Redline Agreement” (2011), by Edwin Black.
    It tells the entire story of the collusion between BP and the british government and their carve-up of the middle east. Fascism at its best.
    I recommend it

    Nazi foreign officials saw Edward VIII as a friend of Germany in the middle of the second world war, according to a newly released US intelligence report.

    And here's another great british fascist for you -

Many others did, many Irish, Scots, Welsh and English... not to mention Germans, Swiss, Italians etc, etc... Are you going to blame Italy for the conquista del desierto as well?

    You can even tell lies and deceit, blackmail and hoodwink the UN,
    But as Liam Fox the minister for defense said today to the people and the free world,
    And , let's not forget the Falklands. Next year is the 30th anniversary of the victory for self-determination in the Falklands.
    A victory made possible by the resolve of former, Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. And we will continue to guarantee the security of the Falklands.
    However, this is not the 1980's. We are now working towards healthier relations with the Argentinians.
    But one thing is unchanged; for as long as the people of the Falklands choose to, they are, and will always be, British. .
    To represent Britain, in war as well as in peace, is to represent our inherent democratic values, the rule of law and respect for life. fought for and defended in every place and every generation . And we have a duty to uphold the sacrifices made in the past / Because it is these things that make Britain great Thank you,

    So far as slavery is concerned - the british didnt abolish slavery in 1790 in fact the parliamentary act finally abolishing slavery was not passed until 1833 and it did not finally come into force until 1838 and even after this, slaves were still being used in the british west indies.
    All this while south america had already banned slavery - yes it was Mexico that completely abolished slavery in 1829 - by a president of African descent.

    smallpox blankets against Native peoples MYTH! How do you infect thousands of blankets with Smallpox? The infection spread the same way any infection spreads though populations that have little or no immunity to it.

    Like the plague in England, caused by a disease carried over from India. I wonder if there is an INTERNET theory about that? Maybe the Indians sent it to us, in infected rats? Google it!

    Similar to the myths about 9-11 being an inside job. Very popular now on the internet, alongside ideas such as the reptilian agenda and the Queen of England being a reptile who heads up the New World Order and secretly runs America!

    1920s: Britain uses chemical weapons in Iraq. Yes this is true, we may have killed dozens of people with these weapons. A terrible crime, typical of the age. Far more people died from the conventional bombs we dropped though!

    Marcos Alejandro you don't mention your government MURDERING 50,000 of your own people in COLD BLOOD in the later half of the 20th century. While you ethnically cleansed your Indian population in the 19th Century. Seems that the real savages are your governing class!

    @107 fantazum2011,
    The British were not“kicked out”of lndia as you well know.
    lt was time to leave, so we left. lt was a new world & colonial people were demanding to rule themselves.
    Partly it was in recognition for lndia's sacrifices & contributions to the Allied victory in WWll.
    Personally l believe we should have left in 1919 at the end of the first world war. Perhaps neither us nor the lndians were ready for a free lndia then.
    Agreed, lraq was nothing to do with us. We just got sucked into another of America's lmperial wars. Saddam, of course as you well know dear fanta, murdered thousands of his own people & gave the impression that he had all these weapons. His deception worked only too well as we believed him!
    As for Afghanistan, well l agree that we should not be there either. l think you'll find the Afghans can dish it out too. There was no long period of“bloody oppression” in Afghanistan as you say. ln fact we were chased out of there in 1839. Stop telling lies, fanta.

    I'd rather you didn't keep repeating 'squidmillionaires', but if you insist on making yourself look foolish I can't stop you. In fact, it's quite entertaining, so carry on. It was nonsense the first time you said it, and every time since then.

    'political power conflict problem'?? It may well be a lie, but to be honest, I haven't a clue what you are talking about.

    I don't normally correct anyone's spelling, as my Spanish is terrible...... but Wales and whales are not the same thing.

    Anyway, I'm glad you have such a positive view of life in the Falklands. You almost sound like you wish you lived here ;-)

    Malen,
    Why am l dripping with blood? And don't bother with what?
    Definitely not bla bla bla bla or even blah blah blah, but fun all the same.
    Fyi, l spend very little time looking in the mirror. l have more important things to do(like stirring up silly Argentines!).
    She does sound like she wants to live in the Falklands.
    Malen, when you need a character reference for when you emigrate to the Falklands, give them my name(snigger).
    But thank you for your concern.

    Like allways.....strong support to Argentina´s position over Malvinas in General Assembly of United Nations, The Fourth Committee.

    Let´s wait the final resolution of this year calling again to UK to resume negotiations ......this is the 3o time !!!! UK like allways doesnt obey International calls.

    Again in the official document, call the islands by his correct name Malvinas in 24 opportunities and only 2 by falklands...of course only Uk call the islands that way......

    The UN supports self determination, except in the non-functioning C24. Check the 4th Committee records on the subject.

    Only self determination will find a solution to the Argentine colonial fantasy.

    “Only self determination will find a solution to the Argentine colonial fantasy.”

    Or you could just ignore them completely. What can they really do about it anyway?
