    Yeah, I am not a fan of his acting but I loved the first film he directed 'Indian Runner'.

    LOL! That anyone believes his opinion carries any weight.

    Still, if he is against colonialism he will not want Argentina colonising the Falkland Islands.

    He has already previously 'championed' other pariah states such as Venezuela and Cuba. I think it is seen as 'cool' by some US actors (and others) to play at being left wing, anti establishment, as they think it makes them seem as 'edgy' and 'raw'. He is using the current situation to beef up (if you pardon the pun) his saleable reputation.

    I thought it was funny personally, Argentina's supporters get more embarrassing by the second.

    When you can count Chavez, Sean Penn and Iran as allies you know you're doing it wrong!

    This is good news for the UK since having these crackpots support the Argentine cause because it simply improves the UK's morale standing and bankrupts the morale standing (if it was ever in question) of Argentina.

    They've got some work to do now just to obtain the support of Syria and then I think they pretty much have the aces of the crackpot community!

    What has a third rate America actor got to do with the Falkland Islands, politics, or Argentina? NOTHING.

    Sean Penn, believes in the Illuminati and the New World Order. Like Mel Gibson (despite having British heritage and English surname) he is an Anglophobic and a racist. They believe the world is run by the Queen of England, who controls the Illuminati and is setting up a New World Order, he also believe 9/11 was an inside job carried out by Zionists.

    You may just as well hear from Jim, the taxi driver. This is the kind of crap they keep feeding us with.

    Argentina is a fascistic colony of European immigrants. The indigenous population live in poverty and are treated like third class citizens in their own land. The only country in South America that acts like a colonial power is Argentina, her population virulently nationalistic. A danger to the region.

    What does Sean Penn know about anything anyway? Why does he think that he should be the final arbiter over the lives of other people? Why does Sean Penn think that he is so important? Now I know why I have never liked him. Or movies “blessed” with his attendance. Sean Penn should stick to his day job and stop dabbling in things that he knows absolutely nothing about.
    Why does Haiti need an army? Who would want to invade it? Surely it would be in Haiti's best interests if they were occupied by foreigners. Cannot see many starters. Does Haiti want to invade its neighbours? Once again, Cristina Kirchner is clearly away with the fairies and is a real danger to herself, young argentines, her countries neighbours indeed a danger to the world.

    Here is a film all the nationalist children of Argentina 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...

    The Official Story / La historia official (1985)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7LF5II0wIY

    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.

    Great for Sean! And for the Haitian people that are represented by this man.

    Argentina is also giving space for immigrants that come from a terrible situation in some Caribbean countries. Cooperation is working.

    Unfortunately colonial powers' hunger for natural resources and military bases at strategic geo-political places like Malvinas is very hard to handle.

    Democracy didn't want Vietnam War, but corporate media and a little group of right-winger warriors could influence more.
    Democracy didn't want the workers paying the crisis Europe is going throug, but the corporate media and a little group of financial speculators COULD influence more...

    Today more and more democratic voices see Colonialism in Malvinas, and for us, Latinamericans, colonialism and nuclear weapons in our continent is even worse.

    At first they tried to show these supports like results of an aggressive pressure of Argentina in its foreign countries... Like if Argentina had the power to extort them. Now it is clear I think that the countries, presidents, and Multilateral International Organisms are supporting not because it is a FAIR CAUSE.

    No matter what, people who understand that the presence of the UK in Malvinas is colonialism is the honest type of people, the people who represents democracy, human wrights, people that work for PEACE, who work for International Security...

    I would not call Hugo Chavez a dictator far from it, in fact he is a very intelligent man, but has been known to push for a percentage of oil from some independent islands which surround his country ! so there is debate to whether he is holding his cards close to his chest, waiting for the outcome of the sovereignty of the Falklands to then maybe take action of the islands in a similar radius .... again more reason for democracy to stop bigger countries bullying of smaller islands.

    @33 For the sake of Melvin, if he can read more than one article a day, this is how to quote something not written by oneself.
    “After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Sean Penn co-founded the J/P Haitian Relief Organization and has been running a 55,000 person tent camp.

    Due to his visibility as an on-the-ground advocate for rescue and aid efforts in the aftermath, Penn was designated by president Michel Martelly as Ambassador-at-Large for Haiti, the first time that a non-Haitian citizen has been designated as such in the country's history. Penn received the designation on January 31, 2012.”

    Note the QUOTATION marks.

    So, no, Audi. He isn't a representative for the people of the USA. He's a “representative” for a country that is worse off NOW than before more than $4.5 billion in aid was offered.

Some two bit actor who the lobotomised bitch has found to spout the lies that her government spread about the Falkland's and Britain. Just think another insignificant actor thirty years ago disagreed with what Argentina did and could not do enough for Maggie in the few months it took to kick the thieving bastards of the Islands. But there again that insignificant actor had by then become the most powerful man in the world something that this wanker could only dream of being. Sean Penn what a Muppet to be associated with this bitch, he must be desperate for publicity perhaps he is going to make some type of B movie on how Argentina won the war in 1982 and kicked the arses of the British, after all we all know that Hollywood actors live in a fantasy world don't we.

    If Sean Penn wants to give lectures on colonialism he should start by visiting his own countries Indian reservations, travel to Puerto Rico and end up with Iraq. Then at least he would be able to lecture his own country first. Alternatively he would do better to stick with something he knows more about. Handing over the Falkland Islands, or invading them, against the wishes of the islands population... well that really would be colonialism.

    To all the Malvinistas,
    Britain wont give up the Malvinas. They cant afford to. When Scotland chooses independance they will not only loose 30% of their territory but even worse they will loose 90 % of their oil reserves. See - they need the Malvinas oil in a desperate attempt to cling to historic grandeur. The Empire is in its death throes. Any way I wouldnt blockade the Malvinas, on the contrary I would establish trade and cultural links. Then slowly introduce the best looking Argentine men and ladies plus Tango to the ugly Falckland society.Nature will take its course. In 2 or 3 generations the Islands will be Argentine and much better looking plus by that time the Malvinas will own (with oil wealth) the much reduced and poverty stricken English Islands. That is if it is not called Anglostan by then. In that case just keep the Malvinas and forget about the English Islands

    new biscuit? Bottled water?
    So interesting that you desperately have to believe that Scotland will leave the UK. No doubt you have got this impression from your close up, on-the-spot observations...........NOT. Also interesting that you think Britain would lose 90% of her oil reserves. Now let's try some facts. A large proportion of the oil reserves in the North Sea are not in putative Scottish waters. “King” Salmond (as he is known) likes to tell Scottish people this. Doesn't make it true. Try these little thoughts. Scotland will have no air force and no navy. How would Scotland protect said oil reserves against nasty remaining UK that has both? Argies will understand the next mathematical expression. Scotland = 5 million population. England plus = 57 million population. In other words, Scotland will get precisely what England is prepared to give it. Otherwise known as not much. Now a little calculation shows us in England that if Scotland departs we will save £118 million PER DAY in public expenditure for Scotland. Then there is a body of opinion that says that, if Scotland becomes independent, the whole of the UK will be out of the EU. “King” Salmond wants to be a member. The English people don't! So England can save another £50 million PER DAY. Meanwhile, Scotland can apply to join, but England won't. Putting a powerful non-EU country between Scotland and its EU pals. A non-EU country with no intention of letting Scottish imports/exports travel through its territory. Have you asked yourself where countries without oil reserves get their oil? Do they buy it? Have you been listening to CFK? Do you think her ideas of how things SHOULD work out, or yours, have any relevance? Here's a tip. Match 2,000 years of BRITISH history against less than 200 years for argieland. England is so far beyond you SA countries. You may get where we are in another 1800 years. Losers!

    Sean Penn on democracy = give the Malvinas Islands back to the Argentines!

    1. No such place as “the Malvinas Islands” apart from in the imagination of the Argentine government and a few left wing MORONS who haven't a clue.

    2. Cannot give back something to which it has never belonged.

    3. Argentina is ruled by a Dynasty re-enactment of the Perons, who have adopted the national socialist (corporatist) policies of Peronism (Fascism) - own goal Mr Penn!

    4. Perhaps someone would like to give us, the Falkland Islanders a say in our own sovereignty? What we call our islands, what government we wish to live under and what language we wish to speak.

    God knows the Argentines don't want us to have a say. Many of the Argies on here keep reminding us they don't want us (the people), only the islands. We know none of us would be here now had it not been for the response of Britain in 1982. A lot of people would have been murdered and those who survived would have left. They killed many of their own people, they wouldn't have thought twice about killing our.

    Just look at how rabid they are now over us, even the soldiers who never got sent to war want a war medal for fighting a non existent enemy, they want that medal so bad they riot over getting it.

    I'm lucky, I was born after the war. But I plan to join the Defence Force as soon as I can. I don't want a medal and I don't want a war. But equally, I'm not going to be forced under any jackboot, least of all an Argentine one because we know only too well how deranged they are in their wish to dominate the region.

    My hero's are Violat Sazbo and Odette Hallowes, they fought for freedom and democracy, what did the Argies fight for in 82? Oppression, subjugation and fascism. You would have thought we'd moved on but my generation is ready, just as past generations were ready. We will always be ready, it's in the British character, we can not be broken, we never have been, we never will be.

    Well Done Suzy. Didn't the argentines take Major patricio dowling, an obnoxious bullying secret argentine policeman to the Falklands on their ill-considered and failed invasion?
    I recall that dowling “played” russian roulette with an imprisoned farmer, clicking a pistol at the back of his head. Given that the farmer was handcuffed at the time, this wasn't that brave of the obnoxious dowling. The only contribution argentina has ever made to “freedom” was to anchor the southern end of the ”rat-line, providing cover, refuge, darkness, anonymity and safety for nazi's fleeing justice after WW2.
    I believe that many Falkland families have been living on the Falklands for up to 10 generations. That they do not want a bar of argentina should be the end of the matter.

    In fact theres so many canards on this thread I can't respond to them all, so I'll stick to #40. The fact is that the last time haiti was occupied (by the US, for 20 years up to the 1930s) an army was left behind trained by the occupying power to become the mainstay of repression for the rest of the century, propping up Papa and Baby Doc and providing many dictators of its own, culminating in a vicious junta in 1991-94. The UN occupation of Haiti should end and the current (very unimpressive and barely elected) President Martelly wants an army, so the more input Argentina under its human rights oriented, junta jailing government can give to that process the better

    Sean Penn's latest Movie, “Give back Argentina to the Indigenous Population” is a cheery tale about an indigenous leader who gets shot by a mining company in Patagonia. It's really heart warming when his final words are '..colonialism, end it now' and then all the Argentinians return to Nazi-germany and Mussolini's Italy from where they came. The final scene is of Chile accepting the land back that was stolen from them in the Beagle conflict.

    Perhaps Sean Penn is doing a voice over for “Team ALBA” a new puppet movie in which Team ALBA - a crack group of super soldiers destroy the western powers so that socialism can triumph, Venzualea can annex the territories it wants and Argentina can invade the Falklands.

    I wonder if the Chavez puppet will sing “I'm so lonlely” or the CFK one will sing “don't cry for me Argentina”?

    B. Britan, where Tony Blair, killer of a million Iraqis remains at large and the current government is making the poor pay for the bankers' crisis.

    Actually theres good and bad, progressive and reactionary forces, in all countries. Its just that in Argentina (and most of Latin America) the progressive, pro-people forces are currently winning, while in Britain we remain, like in most countries, run by craven servants of capital.

    @145 Whenever I discuss this with Scots and I always tell them I cannot wait for their independence, because when they're no longer in the EU, their new passports are invalid for EU working rights, therefore they have to go up to Aberdeen or Ballykindoodleshire to find a job chasing pheasants. For some reason this makes them look like I've just skinned their dog, and they don't seem very happy about their independent future.

    To be fair, they'll just end up like Ireland, where they just build houses for no-one because that's all they know what to do, and some of them Scotts will probably try to get over the fence back into the rUK in order to find non-chip shop based work.

    I hope they don't go independent - to me its a step in the wrong direction. We're definitely stronger together, we have lots of power in the world still. If we split, how do we break up a permanent seat in the un security council? How do we split our nuclear deterrent? Our economy?

    Alex Salmond is selling the idea that London pushes the Scots round, and that they'll all be rolling in oil money if they're independent. The more stupid are probably buying into the idea, and dreaming of them all driving round in big sports cars and owning big houses. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    We all get pushed round by whoever is in power in London, that's nothing new. We elect them. And the oil won't affect the general public, only the super rich as usual. And what will Scotland do when the oil runs out?

    As for Scotland joining Europe? They can't be serious. They'd rather be ruled by an unelected party than someone from Britain?

    Lastly, they should realize they already have it better than us English. Which i don't think is fair. Free education and prescriptions, whereas i have to pay for mine. Not fair at all.

    We wouldn't have to split a seat on the UN security council. We wouldn't have to split the nuclear deterrent. We wouldn't have to split the economy either. rUK continues to exist, just without Scotland leaves it, with it's own economy. We would have to agree the split in the debt and messily split the government bonds. That's the most difficult part.

    rUK would renegotiate with Europe if necessary and Scotland would have to enter into negotiations on entry probably prioritised after Turkey et al.

    rUK would have no obligation to provide work visas to Scottish employees because of it's lack of membership into Europe, impacting on the job status of Scottish passport holders, so I guess most Scotts would still retain british citizenship. Scotland's economy (oil-gas) is a one-trick pony similar to that of Ireland (builiding) or Iceland (fishing), they're not diversified at all. They'd probably end up in Germany's pocket after a while and spend their time complaining about that instead.

    Whatever happens, it'll involve failure, moaning, and blaming others for the failure.

What he said at #139 was factually true, I myself had a family member who went to school with a boy called Saddam born in 1991. He said it when trying to lift sanctions that killed a million Iraqis (before the million killed in the war), one of his greatest humanitarian campaigns.

    Talking of George, watch him here on British satire show 10 o'clock live, defending his friend Sean Penn and opposing colonialism, at around 30 minutes in (http://www.channel4.com/programmes/10-oclock-live/4od#3289146).

    And wrote to rmacintire: Salmond is also a fantasist, a very artful one, more like the pied piper leading Scotland to drown
    and if Scotland fails? you mean doesn't get indendence, the Falklands will fall back into oblivion, are you joking? the world wants forever more oil and Scotland's oil has peaked and is in decline.

    I hit the submit button before I did a final check on 179, Yes I do think my argument through and admit mistakes.

    So can we now get back to pratt Penn or has he had enough publicity already

    I've come to the conclusion that been seen in a photo call with despots is the hollywood actors equivalent of hollywood actresses being seen in a sex scandal tape. Their publicists put them up to it and they're all too monged out on coke to care.

    Argentinians fiddling while their economy burns... good for them.

    Is that the only thing you can think of, archaic?
    Yes the UK has a rich history, unlike Argentina, but whereas our future will improve, yours will get worse.

    #181 If everyone who deeply loved Cristina married her, she'd have 10s of millions of husbands and wives =)

    #183 Well theres Muslims who support independence and Muslims who don't, Muslims in the SNP, Labour, the left, and even the Con-Dems; and I imaginme the English Muslim community have a lot to lose from the kind of England the Scot bashers on here are are looking forward to. Anyway I'm not a slave of the Muslims, I just support them against racist scapegoating just as I would the Jews, Irish, blacks, gays and yes “argies”. You might as well ask why I support the Muslims and don't practice Islam, why I support them and drink (which I do, though moderately for a Scot) and eat pork (remember what Cristina said about that!)

    #184 So Cristina's a “despot” now, you really need help mate, your off your trolley

    You are right, Muslims are in all of the political parties and they ALL turn out at elections when the rest, at best is about 50%.
    But yet again you’re missing the point, your mate Ahmadinejad has said, the West can be defeated by their own democracy and that is why Muslims unfriendly to the UK, support Scottish independence and donate to the SNP, because with a population of only 5 million and the average number of Scottish children born to non-Muslim families at less than 2, while Muslims have 6 + so will be able to outbreed you in no time.
    If you dispute this, check what happened to Bradford, where at the time of an influx of Muslims the people there were sympathetic and kindly to them, (as they were to other groups you mention), but where taken advantage of and now are marginalised in what was their City, with no hope of resisting expanding Muslim rule.
    So if you get your way, kiss goodbye to drinking (at all) and eating pork etc. etc. or the bearded ones will be after you and a formally proud Scotland, will be the first Muslim state of Europe

    @188 British_Kirchnerist
    Yes I’ve done it again, it’s British_Kirchnerist who’s the traitor under Kirchner’s spell that likes Muslims but doesn’t want independence, it’s rmacintire that wants independence and if he/she gets their way, will lose it very quickly afterwards.

    @181 lsolde you are right, British_Kirchnerist is besotted with Kirchner, he/she must like the brainwashing type as he also likes Galloway.

    Galloway has got a hypnotic accent,
    Just like Arabic.
    But although he was right, l feel, about lraq, he is still one very strange individual.
    A Rebel for the sake of being a Rebel?
    Just lately he seems to have lost it altogether.
    Sad.

    All con-artists throw in some plausible theories while seeking your trust, but I find him so bombastic I can’t listen to his ravings for very long
