    1 geo-- And your point IS? We dont give a monkeys rat arse what you or your other arse wipes think. The Falkland Island Government can appoint who they like its nothing at all to do with the likes of you and the rest of the murdering scum that either live in Argentina or who have gone to live in other countries throughout the world. Argentina is a blot on the world landscape formed by murdering scum who ethnically cleansed the indigenous population so that the like of you can live there and lie your way through life and to make a safe haven for Nazi scum who did to do the same thing as you scumbags. Its you who are the squatters and as such should go down on bended knee and ask the world for forgiveness for the past atrocities that the people of the so called Argentina has done. Now piss of back to your hovel and stop commenting on things that have nothing at all to do with the like of you.

    @ 2 you should or shouldn't, it doesn't matter, unless you work for the government.

    It's suspicious the fact that, I repeat, the only islanders making comments on this website are always the same, the commong islanders can't talk or express their opinions, and that's obvious to anyone who has spent some months posting in these forums. Are the common islanders allowed to access this site from their homes or the ones who are allowed (e.g. isolde) to access this site must do it from a set of specific IP addresses under the control of the government of the islands? It's weird, and from this side it looks like the british government is hiding something. Just some more questions, I hope you're not lying islanders, because the kick in your b*tt will make you reach Neptune :)

    @ 6 what I know is what many people know, that those desaparecidos are not desaparecidos and many of them live their lives using fake identities, but those people who know don't dare to say so, because you can get yourself into trouble if you tell the truth. Just remember the judge Argibay Molina, she was paid more than 600000 US Dollars for being a desaparecida but she didn't return the money when she was found :)

    Lmao. Yeah, the government forces isolde to hours of manditory Mercopress a day. It's a secret project from the MOD to influence the twelve or so Argentinians who post here....

    I lack the words to accurately describe the level of your stupidity if you really believe such a thing.

    @ 8 walter claudio rosenfeld is not a jew, he is an ashkenazi, but judaism is not a race nor a nationality, it's a religion, and rosenfeld knows nothing about judaism. he lies about him being a jew. he's not even a semite. i'm tired of those bastards ashkenazi communists.They make people believe that judaism is a race and that it flows through the blood vessels and from one person to another.

    true that Judaism is a religion
    Jewish is a race .

    Ashkenazi is a Poland originated Jewish ethnic group
    Sapharad is a Spain originated Jewish ethnic group.

    Geo 1 get historical fact right please - sorry I know that anything factual is of very difficult for a fantasy man!

    1. you omit that Spain shortly after withdrew and formally RETURNED the Islands to UK. You have the dates wrong as well!!

    1806-07 was NOTHING to do with the Islands - it was UK attacking A Spanish territory as UK and Spain were at war with each other!

    US ordered its warship to destroy the illegal settlement NO - repeat - NO UK involvement - if there was then produce the document please.
    1833 - NOTHING to do with 1806-7 for reasons described above. It was UK forcing the removal of ONLY the military part of the Buenos Aires occupation force.
    As your own Arg Historical Documents proove to you - only 4 civilians left - 2 families - one of Uruguayan and one of Brazilian origen. Those from Buenos Aires area opted to stay voluntarily UNDER British Rule. The last of them died about 1860-70.

    Please answer me this - WHY can you never print TRUE FACTS on here?

    @Geo not everyone that reads these articles actually comment on them themselves. Ask yourself, how many articles on website you have read where you have not commented, it think you will find they out number the ones that you actually did comment on. And seriously Geo, whats with the nonsense fantasy take on the history of the falklands? I mean whats the point in twisting facts of history into your own personal version of history. You simply can not change the original facts of histroy as it is those original facts that describe what actually happened at that time in history. Seriously, if you were a history student you would have failed you exam if you answered with the rubbish you posted in post 1 - But hey if it was an argentinian histroy test, then welldone you probably share the same twisted version of history as your governement. Perhaps you should apply to being CFK's own personal histroy advisor am such the worlds politicians would love to have an even bigger laugh at her using such twisted facts of history at the next international policital meeting she attends.

    if you read my comment then you 'll see that i am not from Argentina.

    You are right i am not historian
    i am logicman...i know all political powers are dirty in the world.

    i had made some consulting in the years between 2001 / 2004
    for some subjects to Argentina indirectly not professionally.
    i must say that i have no any relations about the events as like
    Condors..Coups...Montoneros.. etc..

    @Geo #17 No offence geo, but regardles of whether your consulting was indirect or direct - the fact you are providing such historically in accurate advise in such consultations makes one wonder if argentina are acutally listening to you. Given that they like to use inaccurate facts both historical and even present day facts, then its clear they were indeed listening to you lol ;)

    @ 12
    “Jewish race” lol don't be stupid.
    Take a look at this Jew

    now take a look at this Jew

    now tell me where is that “Jewish race”, where are those racial features that “Jewish race” presents? These two Jews are just normal people, there are no special features that will tell you they are Jews. If you find these two Jews in the street you'll never know that they are Jews, until they tell you, but I'm fed up of these people that after knowing them 3 minutes, they will tell “I'm a Jew”, what? They feel like they are special, and you must know they are Jews, why? simply because they have no special racial reatures, they are just normal people. If you talk to me about ethnic groups, I will agree with you, but on “Jewish race”, no, that's a lie.

    You are like a stuck broken record, stuck that is over 200 years in the past, clinging to a dim and distant link to the Falkland Islands. A time when a German immigrant and some British ex patriots sort agreement with the British Embassy in Buenos Aires to create a settlement in the Falkland Islands.

    Seriously guys, I'm laughing my head of at your tom foolery. You seriously expect to be taken seriously peddling this nonsense?

    It is almost as if you are trying to construct a satire out of your own psychosis - rabid nationalism, self flagellation, institutionalised murder and corruption and a preoccupation with anything military, fascistic (supporting the corporate class against the poor), with the distraction of an external enemy and the desperate need to expand national territory East, West, North and South but most particularly the Falklands. The later of which reapeates in a never ending discourse of rants and raves from your ruling class.

    Funny but sad, it's characteristic of a national on a collision course with the past and lacking any guideline from reality.
