    Where are the Islanders' self determination rights ?
    They themselves negotiate with Uruguay not by UK .

    No ! UK bullying Islanders.
    This is wellknown Brittish tactical maneuver to by passing Islanders to
    impose their invaded islands to be recognized from any countries ,of course if they can find them.In other words if you sit on table with UK directly then it means that you recognize their invasion as a part of UK.

    @ 8 ed (#) I dont understand your point ? the Falklands are a self governing overseas territory of the UK. So, i dont know why your trying to argue with me. Also the UK has a far greater international political influence, hence why they speak on behalf of the FI, because many south american countries are to ignorant to listen toe the islanders themselves .

    1816 / Argentina independence declaration

    1833 / British invaded the islands to revenge of 1806/07.

    @18That was a very poor attempt to patronise me, simply because i criticised your incompetent 'blabber' and your inability to put up a good argument . Your point after being explained is still worthless.

    @19 ahh, i see you are a prime example of the brilliance at alternative version of history, that is proudly exercised numerously in your country. You should right this down in a book, it would make humourless reading. Oh wait, didnt an argie already write this and try to submit it to the UN ? my apologise .

    Noone believe you, totaly untrue.
    a sample;
    1775 - Cpt. Cook claims South Georgia and South Sandwich for Britain
    BUT
    eveybody knows that sandwichs are eaten by not cooking ,meals are eaten by cooking.It is very normal to see why Brits had not eaten patateos up to 19 th century.

    Dear Malvinese1833,
    That is very thoughtful of you, but alas l cannot accept your gift.
    lt would cause too much trouble at home.
    As l have an extremely satisfying & loving relationship here, l don't want to lose that.
    Even if l accepted, l would have to give you my address & this l am not prepared to do.
    Furthermore, you don't know anything about me. All you know is a name.
    You must have someone else that you can give your gift to.
    Once again, thank you but l will decline.
    Merry Christmas.

    @44 Jajajajaja, Dear Isolde, do not worry, do not worry, please.
    I am not seeking a loving relationship. I do not know anything about you.
    Also, I'm far away. It's impossible.
    Just wanted to give a gift as a symbol of friendship
    When the time comes, I to inform in this medium. Will let you know where search.
    Only a symbol of frienship. Nothing more.
    Also you can be a obese hairy British, jajajajaja ( Words of Geoff )
    Merry Christmas, for you too, Lady Isolde
