    The Facklanders treat us as muppets but it must be very sad for them not to be recognized by anybody. There must change their flags, so that shows their attitude must change with the rest of the countries, they think they can control us and we don't want to be part of the long conflict (or love story)

    UK may say whatever they want or wish, relaity will always prevail. The same as Argentinas's sovereignty over the islands!

    The reality is that the Falklands are a British Overseas Territory as long as the islanders wish that to be true.
    The other reality is that Argentina has no sovereignty over the Falklands!!

    Both these realities will prevail until Hell freezes over.

    “Uruguay considers the Malvinas Islands as an English colonial possession in Latin America..”

    1) got it ?

    ”..consequently can’t recognize their (illegal) flag..”

    2) got it ?

    ”This anti-colonialist stance it not a solitary position from Uruguay, but of the whole of Latin America”

    3) got it ?

    “Under no circumstances can we accept vessels with the Malvinas flag in our ports”

    4) got it ?

    ”...creating the necessary conditions for a peaceful negotiation, the sole path to solve this historic difference and “longstanding painful controversy”

    5) got it ?

    “Uruguay......it does not authorize the docking of English naval units with destination Malvinas”

    6) got it ?

    ““There is a political definition not to allow the access to Uruguayan ports of vessels flying the Malvinas Islands flag and whose sovereignty is claimed by Argentina with the support of Uruguay”

    7) got it ?

    ”Uruguay’s position on barring Malvinas flagged vessels “has not changed an iota”

    8) got it ?

    “Under no circumstances can we accept vessels with the Malvinas flag in our ports”

    9) got it ?

    How many FACTS you need for understand that NOBODY in LATAM will EVER recognise your supposed “rights” ? you´re only british invaders and you have rights of course in your loved UK...thats a FACT.

    That's nice to know. In other words, Uruguay doesn't consider the Islands to be part of Argentina.

    no country is reclaming “Guiana”.....France was more clever, fair and astute in his move....they´re in peace in the region....even with Malvinas they act with dignity long time ago when they “cede” their rights to Spain...the only one DIRTY here is UK who (like allways) broke NOOTKA.....allways England acting outlaw, disgusting and the main reason we´re talking with this madness situation.

    The only reason French Guiana is not been claimed by anyone is that Argentina is not next to it. The Brazilians are obviously far more reasonable people. There was a border dispute, but that was settled amicably.

    Actually it was Spain that unilaterally repudiated the Nootka Convention in 1795. Irrelevant anyway as it was never intended to include the Falkland Islands.

    @10...French Guiana is still a colony of France. I thought South America is trying to eradicate colonies from South America? French Guiana is considered mainland France. Its currency is the Euro. It is governed from Paris. It is the only colony in South America.

    @12. I understand they are different words, but the context of your statement wont differ with the use of either word. But lets rejoice in your victory! By using petty semantics you win! Well done Jefferson, but unfortunately is doesnt assist your country's quest in colonising the Falklands. Terrible shame! And thanks for the English lessons, they are much better than an Argentine's history lesson.

    @22 so_facile:

    We can't help it if everyone thinks that we are fabulous and wants to help us out a bit now and then. It's called having friends and allies and it's a useful weapon in the fight against tinpot third world countries with delusions of grandeur. Not that we got too much assistance in 1982 anyway (as you well know).

    You definitely have a very unusual concept of humilation. So, I ran to my dictionary to double-check that I hadn't got it wrong. It read: ”HUMILIATION (noun). Definition: the state or feeling of being humiliated (ie, experiencing reduced or hurt dignity or pride), as happened to Argentina in 1982.”

    @36: Mal vino:

    What of Earth would we want Argentina for? That was never part of the equation. We didn't keep Germany after the end of WW2. We just kept what was ours.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the “battle” as you like to call it was over the Falkland Islands (those Islands that you class as part of Argentina). You lost. Get over it and move on. Whether it was a battle or a war in 1982, nobody could deny that it was an utterly humilating defeat for Argentina. The UK has had its fair share of miltary defeats in the past - the country accepted them, learned from them and moved on. Denying it will only make things harder for you.

    Does it also mean that you think the UK and Argentina are still at war and somehow you're going to miracualously pull a victory from the jaws of defeat. You lost a long time ago. Try to accept reality.

    Malviner - 1982 was a war with a beginning and an end. Argentina started it and Argentina ended it by signing what was in effect an unconditional surrender. Sorry about being better than you, it is just the result of natural selection.

    The only victory you are now claiming is the banning of a piece of fabric on some fishing boats that can happily fly another one of the Red Ensign family and enter any port they wish. These ships remain FI registered. If you call that a victory then you are either easily pleased or have exceptionally low standards.

    What war are you fighting now because I don't see one?

    Technicaly speaking 1982 was a conflict, involving battles such as goose green for example, for a war there has to be a declaration of war.

    I think wot malviner means is the struggle is not over.

    war is after all an extension of diplomacy.

    Granted that the Falklands flag is part of an “Injusticialist”-Argentinian blockade.
    But since there is only a so-called fiction-“malvinas,” then do the Falklands really exist, do they?!
    Now to add to the Injusticialist confusion, one could ask, what about postage stamps? Suppose they show the Falklands flag, will they be allowed to “violate” Argentina's fascistic air/sea blockade?
    Apologies, but I find Argentina every day more and more, and more confusing!
