    I do find it somewhat amusing the the complaint is about the UK and one of the reviewers of the complaint is none other than the UK with also veto powers.

    This isn't anything other than a shameless and pointless PR stunt.

    I'm sure Ban Ki-moon will be smirking over this. Militarization they say by exchanging one warship for another which they have done for the past 30 years.

    I mean I can understand the Argentine position, clearly sending one warship into that vast swathe of ocean is of course turning it into a militarized zone...

    Also it should be clear that Argentina isn't doing the same by having its own 40 odd ships sat in the region.

    There's strong logic in this argument.........

    The UK has no legal requirement nor any other requirement to comply with non binding resolutions and as its not in the wishes of the people they will not.

    Posters like 15 just simply intensify the feeling the British have that Argentina isn't trust worthy nor should they engage in a communication with a country that seems intent on name calling (both their government and citizens).

    Honestly why would the UK engage such disrespectful, childish and nasty people in any form of communication other than telling them any aggression will be met with overwhelming force?

    Argentina needs to starting acting like a peaceful and respectful nation to get on diplomatic terms with the UK because clearly it can't force the issue against the strength of the UK.

    Let the argies goto the UN. It would be falling on deaf ears. If the argie really wanted to gain them back and push for soviegnty then they would take it to the ICJ, or are they worried about being laughed at there as well.

    On 2008, Argentina have ordered up to five PZM[4] at a cost of US$120 million as part of its own Patrulleros de Alta Mar (PAM) programme to be constructed at its Río Santiago Shipyard. Finally on 2010 the Argentine Government launched the construction of the first four in the Tandanor Shipyard.[5]

    This should be funny. Timerman is going to complain about the militarisation by deploying a Type 45 destroyer to replace a Type 23 frigate. Mind you, Britain has had an on-station warship at the Falkland Islands since 1982, rotating frigates and destroyers. Might have had something to do with the underhand, cowardly invasion and occupation of the Falkland Islands despite the UN Security Council resolution instructing argies to cease fire and leave the Islands.

    Almost 40 UN resolutions - wow! See, argies, you can't even get that right. BUT, UNGA resolutions are non-binding and Britain is under no obligation to comply with them. And there was no military invasion in 1833. You can't invade something that belongs to you. The Falklands have belonged to Britain since 1690. 130 years before anything resembling argieland came into being.

    Oooh and he has scheduled meetings with the president of C24. The UN Committee packed with Latin American states. Wonder why Britain doesn't bother to attend? Could it be because C24 is packed with argie yes-men and those that argieland has bullied?

    But, on the South American continent, Chile, Peru and Uruguay are already backing away. In the Caribbean, Antigua & Barbuda has refuted Timerman's claims of support. Who will be next?

    But it must be clear that neither Britain nor the Falkland Islands has much to fear. They are, after all, soiling their panties over one 29 year old search and rescue co-pilot.

    Argentina does not need diplomatic ties with the UK or the Falklands. It needs to stop these measures against the civilians of the Falklands, I always condemn actions against civilians it is just not right morally. Drop the matter, let the Falklanders trade and travel freely with our neighbors, and only ban them from entering Argentine territory either from the sea or land borders.

    The sooner Argentina just leaves them alone and ends all diplomatic ties with the UK the better.

    Yes, on the basis that the Falklands are a European Union outpost in the Americas, so as long as that is the case, Argentina should not recognize this. This position has always been Argentina's. Which is different from not recognizing your right to remain by your own willunder British protection or administration.

    The Falklands as they stand or not part of the American geopolotical entity and should not be treated that way, they are part of the EU. Other countries of course can choose their best dealings with the Falklands.

    On a more self-respect level, I'm tired of hearing the Falklanders say they want nothing to do with Argentina. Well, we should grant their wish, not the way CFK is doing now, but by allowing the Falklanders to live in peace and engage with South America. Just not with us, simply pretend we don't exist to you, and that you don't exist to us.

    That would be a respectul position to all parties: to the islanders by respecting their dignity,to our neighbors by respecting their sovereingty without any pressuring, and to ourselves by respecting our honor of not dealing with people who see us beneath their shoe.

    Both are wrong. Two wrongs still don't make a right. The UK and France should not include those territories under EU treaties, otherwise they are colonies. They are not in Europe, they should not be treated as such. That does not mean they cannot remain under the administration of a European country, but under the reality that they are in America. Otherwise, it is colonialism.

    @tobias - You're missing the bigger picture. This is nothing more than an old fashioned land grab, the same that has happened for centuries. Look at Antarctica - we staked our claim then Argentina tried to claim the same bit 50 odd years later. They see us as a threat. They should really concentrate on sorting their own affairs out, they don't own anything outside their own borders.

    They've gone backwards because their only hope is to befriend the Falklanders and they simply can't bring themselves to do it. It seems to be about pride and humiliation above anything else. They don't seem to be able to learn the lesson that if you bang your head against a wall a second, third and fourth time it's going to hurt as much as the first.

    There are some nutters from both sides who post here - but the debate is often just schoolyard insults being thrown back and forth. I can never be bothered to comment on the history of it because the same old stuff gets regurgitated year after year. Though it's always fun to have the occassional dig. Stay sensible and stay around and you'll discover that the Falklands are pestered daily by Argentina in one way or another. You barely ever hear any of it in the UK press.

    I've had a long interest in the topic since I became mates with a chap that fought on Two Sisters.

    This is what the UN had to say today

    Mr Ban's office said in a statement that the UN secretary general had “expressed the hope that the governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom will avoid an escalation of this dispute and resolve differences peacefully and through dialogue”.

    And this is what we British had to say on the matter

    The UK says it is only carrying out routine operations in the South Atlantic, off Argentina's east coast.

    The HMS Dauntless, which is due to arrive off the Falklands in March, is among the largest and most powerful of the UK's air defence destroyers.

    The UK says the islands have been militarised ever since Argentina's invasion in 1982 and insists its defences remain unchanged and the warship is only replacing one in the area..

    The UK says the islanders have the right to self-determination and it will enter into negotiations on the status of the Falklands only if they request it.

    You see it’s not we British that are not calm about things, it’s the excitable psychopathic blundering Argentine Government.

    That's it end of discussion. Now it is up to the psychopathic lobotomised sour faced bitch who is supposed to be having the best interests of Argentina close to her heart to back down with the rhetoric and come over to the UK and kiss Cameron’s backside and go down on bended knee and ask forgiveness from the 3,000 people on the Falkland Islands for trying to make their lives a misery.

    UK being left out in the cold as ill-informed and its actions as bullying. Why else would the OAS support Argentina's statements at the UNSC? And the OAS' SG is a Chilean. You could hardly make an argument that he would 'love' Argentina, could you? BURN!

    The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, expressed today his full support of the statements made by the President of the Republic of Argentina, Cristina Fernández, who upon vindicating the right of her country to the Malvinas Islands, warned that nobody should expect from her Nation “a response outside of politics and diplomacy.” Insulza highlighted that President Fernández “has made use of the only valid instrument to those who believe in peace and democracy: political dialogue; and in this way, she has the full support of all our region.“

    The head of the OAS highlighted the decision to repudiate ”the militarization of the South Atlantic“ expressed by President Fernández, who also asserted she will preserve ”a region where peace predominates, where we have had conflicts that we have resolved without arms, among us South Americans.“

    On the determination of the Mercosur countries to refuse ships with the Islands' flag, Insulza expressed his full agreement with this position and noted that ”Great Britain should not try to force the entry into ports of Latin America and the Caribbean of a flag not recognized by the international community.“

    The Secretary General of the hemispheric organization warned about the danger of sending war ships to the South Atlantic and emphasized the ”nonsense in adding a bellicose tone to a conflict with a country that in the last years has expressed its desire for peace, and has not given any indications of wishing to change that a policy.“ ”On the contrary, Argentina is among the last on the list of defense spending countries in our region, and that fact alone speaks clearly about the Argentine people's vocation for peace,” he insisted.

    The UN does not back you, another famous argie lie,
    The UN has more pressing problems with other countries that are in desperate need of help,
    The last thing it needs is a bloody crying spoilt child seeking attention on the world stage,

    You he said no more ratching, it up
    And what will CFK do,
    The world is far to busy to worry abt you,
    No one cares, no one listens,

    Yes i know you are 29 argies,250 chilean and in total are 2800 person ah 3000 military there. It is a crisol de razas! As Timerman say it is a global problem that not only Argentina must go to ONU but also chile/ Uruguay ,Brasil becuase the Sur Atlantic is in danger. The militarization and the exploration of oil in the atlantic might bring a ecological disaster and impact in all the regionto . That remember me about the Oil spill in Guf of Mexico close to Florida coast.

    I do not know where you get your data from but there are not 3,000 military on the Falklands (there are no Malvinas).

    If you require evidence of oil spills near to home try 'Petrobras oil spills', in Google and see what comes up.

    The only danger to the South Atlantic is from the government (and I use that term advisedly) of Argentina. But if you went to school since the indoctrination of history school books by 'Generalisimo' Peron you wouldn't know that.

    Argentina alone, has to be the biggest danger in the south Atlantic region,
    she is a delinquent child that wants what it cant have, and does not own, it even goes to the UN with false claims,
    The world has more pressing problems to worry abt, rather than listen to a child crying,

    The down side is, like all spoilt out of control children they do not realise or understand the consequences of their actions, and will push this item all the way to conflict and try to blame it on others,

    Remove Argentina from the elusion, and the south Atlantic and south American mainland, would return instantly to peace and prosperity, would it not,
    Argentina is it own worst enemy.

    This is Argentine islands and Argentine oil, being drilled by colonial pirates, protect by pirate ships, sooner all destroyed better.

    Clearly, Malvinas is Argentine, claim exist since before Argentina exist. This is well documented that we renounce claim in 1850 but claim was resurrected under Peron who traveled to Italy and adopted policies of Mussolini fascist party in order to make Argentina great nation that it became.

    As part of expanded living space, we must continue this policy and we must take over Terra del Fuego and Beagle Channel and then Malvinas.

    My grandfather while working for Intelligence visit Indonesia in 1976 to copy plans they used for invasion of Portuguese East Timor and removal of colonial population to be copied in invasion of Malvinas.

    If we had copied these plans our invasion would be success and like East Timor is part of Indonesia, Malvinas would now be part of Argentina. World has very short memory.

    In order to do good for our country we must do bad things. This is what my grandfather always says.

    We know Malvinas never been under Argentine sovereignty but gifted to us by Papal Bull in 1496. No one can argue with Pope or God, that whole of South America given by him to Spain (not Portugal, Brazil is anomaly) .

    Go home colonial pirates w claim you land before our country exist, you can not argue with that. You live there almost 200 years illegally, you have no rights. We will own your homes, farms, businesses, oil and fish.

    You will be made to speak Spanish, drive on right, obey our laws, live under our government and governor. In return we give you right to be reborn like our national hero James Peck.

    James Peck is son of Malvinas War traitor Terry Peck, he was awarded MBE for helping British occupy our land. Unlike his father, James is brave, patriot, his father will be turning in his grave.

    You can all be reborn like James Peck. Or you can die like Terry Peck!

    Filippo - As you said from the beginning, it's not about the Falkland Islands, it's about the oil. Argentina is an high inflation-ridden banana republic desperate for money, so of course you want that oil money more than anything else. Even by trying to make false claims about sovereignty. You claim no one can argue with Pope or God about sovereignty? And there was me thinking Muslim extremists are potentially dangerous! You seem crazy, especially when you use the phrase 'colonial-pirates'. It makes you sounds like an Argentinian Mugabe!

    @73 I don't think you really understand. You keep whittering on about the OAS. I'll try to emphasise this so that you get the idea. WE DON'T CARE. IN FACT, WE DON'T GIVE A FLYING F*CK. There exactly two countries in the OAS that are of any relevance. See if you can figure out which two.
    @77 More indigenous civilians and fewer British defence forces than you quote.
    @80 I've answered your copy and paste drivel somewhere else. The real truth is that, if the British government follows the wishes of the British people, argieland's population will shortly be less than half the current figure. And those survivors will be diseased, poxed animals. Oh, sorry. They are already diseased, poxed animals. Just more of them. How wonderful we Brits are. Disease and pest control all in one. We should charge.

    A few words to any Chileans and Uruguayans. We've had good relations for quite a few years. Probably something to do with the British part in the creation of your countries. It's something we remember. Do you? We'd like to leave you out of anything we might have to do to argieland and its supporters. Your choice. We like to remember our friends!

    @83 Conqueror,

    Enough of that nonsense. We aren't about to nuke anybody unless they start throwing nukes at us.

    So, to everyone now, let's back off and see what we agree on: Argentina is not going to give up on the islands. Neither is the UK. It'd be political suicide for the leaders of either country. Equally, neither country is about to charge to war with the other, even though potential oil revenues are inflaming the issue. How about this for an idea:

    1) Argentina ceases to harass and obstruct ships aiming to trade with the Falklands.

    2) A short oil drilling moratorium is declared, until point 3 is resolved.

    3) We look again at Falkland independence, maybe holding a referendum on the topic. Yes, I know, it's been declared a “non-self-governing territory” by virtue of its small population. But the population's now rather larger than it was when that decision was made; and other very small countries have gained independence (e.g. Nauru, whose population stood at about 6,000 at independence). And yes, defence is a tricky issue, but a defence treaty could be drawn up with the UK, and it could even be drawn up and on the table prior to the referendum. Commonwealth membership could also likely be arranged, and international recognition expedited (if not Argentinian recognition under the current administration, even with the financial possibilities implicit in point 4).

    4) If we get a newly independent Falklands from this, they deal with whoever the heck they like on the subject of extracting their oil. If not, we carry on with the status quo, the UK go back to drilling oil, and Argentina go back to complaining about it.

    What do you think? Too utopian? Would the islanders even go for it? Answers on a postcard, please :).

    @89 Maybe, who knows. I don't think Argentina want to even recognize their presence so far. They see them as an 'implanted population', like they're not real people. Its wrong, and its a shame so many other countries have blocked ports to them. What a sad state of affairs for the human race.

    I always wonder what would happen if aliens invaded us. How trivial our petty differences would seem then, the whole world united against a common enemy. It seems that there is always a war on, on some scale around the world. Even in a quiet road you get neighbours arguing over the boundaries of their gardens, couples rowing about nothing. Some people aren't content unless they're fighting, its like a need that drives them, makes them feel like they have a purpose.

    All we really need is a roof over our head and some food. Everything else is a luxury. Its a shame more people don't see that and enjoy what they've got. Argentina, shame on you. Is your country not big enough? Are you overcrowded? I don't think so.

    Ideally this oil feud should be irrelevant, if we just put the best minds together and came up with an alternative. It really is our only option, seeing as most of the oil will be gone in a few years.

    No chance, and rightly so. There are no Malvinas.

    Get Argentina to remove the crap from their 'Constitution', pay to remove the mines and treat the Falklanders without threats for 100 years and you MIGHT be in with a chance.

    Just might, mind you.

    Here is a film everyone should watch. It should be compulsory education in Argentine schools to learn about their country recent history, instead of teaching lies about the Falkland Islands (the imaginary Malvinas - which Argentina has NEVER had sovereignty over).

    That something like this was allowed to happen is a crime against humanity, 50,000-100,000 raped, tortured, mutilated, murdered and disappeared (Borges). Unborn babies ripped out of their mothers wombs, young children taken from their parents, who were murdered by the heroic Argentine military.

    Anyone of you born in the 70's? I hope your lucky enough to know who your real parents are...

    It's a film everyone should watch. Feel shame because the specter of fascism still grips Argentina and as Martino Moreno said “If publishing the truth is forbidden, then lies, ignorance and poverty will follow”.

    Argentina's history is still being written by Moreno's assassins.
