    Clear bias from the committee. what exactly are they frightened of - that they might see first hand that the islanders live in peace, arent Argentine and want to remain British?

    these people just dont want to face the facts and they make themselves look farcical and totally biased.

    Sad really.

    The Falklanders should do more of this type of thing.

    The C24 is just a den of iniquity, completely biased and arguably showing the hallmarks of a corrupt south american or african government institution. It doesn't even seem to do anything other than provide a forum for Argentina to scream about how it hates self-determination, while ignoring the security council and not signing up to the ICJ/ICA.

    It's just faggotry of the utmost proportions. Well done Ban Ki-moon on presiding over this furkshow.

    The Falklanders need to do more themselves to press their case. They should be actively engaging with the Brazilians etc. and I'm really not sure why they are not doing this.

    In principle... you can not negotiate with a government from Argentina... when it states in their constitution that its against their own law to negotiate.

    There can be no negotiations with a country that refuses to negotiate it even though it seeks it, there is nothing quite as retarded as Argentine logic.

    I think you will find, that this comes down to expeience,

    Perhaps some cannot be trusted,
    If the islanders lack this mode, it could well backfire.

    But of course nothing stops them from requesting this,
    And just ignore they fools that say, the islanders can’t do nothing without our say so,

    If they believe that [and they don’t]
    They may well be Argentinean now.
    Some people just cannot be trusted,

    Then it has to be clearly known that the Falklanders themselves have tried to engage with the Rg's but that the Rg's refuse to listen.

    At the minute the Rg's can say and do what they like and they get the sympathy vote. however the Islanders themselves, with tactics from the foreign office have an awful lot of superb PR to do here, an opportunity that as yet they have not taken.

    wouldnt it be great if the UK govt could stand up at the UN and say that the Falkland islanders had tried to talk with the Rg govt but that they had totally ignored them. wouldnt it be great if just 1 member of the Brazilian govt walked away from the FI saying that he never knew what it was like on the islands and how nice the people are etc.

    at the minute virtually no one in south america knows anything about the FI - EXCEPTING WHAT THE RG's tell them - which is a totally false picture.

    5# Argentina will negociate the interest of the islanders, but the sovereignty dispute is bilateral, bilateral means bi = 2, lateral = sides...ergo 2 sides and the UN says that 2 sides are argentina and the UK...
    And the UK cannot pretend to have a territory being 14.000 miles of distance...
    If the UK says Iran is evil because Iran do not respect the UN resolutions then the UK is exactly the same than Iran because the UN call them to negociate and the UK refuse to it...

    We have been saying this for ages, and if im correct, the islanders are slowly getting there voice, and branching out,
    But must tread very carefully,

    Life is very hard, with a very nasty and greedy wolf at the door .

    I agree that this has to be done really well but you have the masters of diplomacy rooting for you and advising you - the UK.

    youre missing a trick at the minute by not engaging yourselves. Engage with the whole of south america; leave the UK out of it and lets see where you end up.

    It will catch the RG's and the SA's totally off guard.

    the RG's want to talk to the UK but the UK doesnt and shouldnt talk with them. You should be putting pressure on the Rg's to talk and they will be absolutely uncomfortable with this and it will totally flummox them.

    @6 It's the only thing they can do, which is to outline the fact that the UN is not listening or interesting in listening to the peoples of a particular entity. The chair is from ecuador so quite likely to be massively biased, hence it's not unusual that no one has visited, simply it exposes the hallmarks of corruption and bias.

    @8 It goes against the Argentinian constitution to enter into negotiations that include sovereignty of the islands. It's not for the Argentinians to decide how many groups are involved, because they walked out of negotiations last time.

    The UK can have a territory anywhere they want, just like France has French Guyana and Islands in the Indian Ocean, Norway has islands near the Antarctic, USA has Guam and Chile has Easter Island.

    Argentina refused to abide by binding Security Council Resolutions 502 and 505, it also refuses to register the jurisdiction of the ICJ/ICA. Nestor Kirchner walked out of UN-proposed negotiations going against the spirit of the UN resolutions. Argentina decided to negotiate by arms in 1982 and lost the negotiations. Tell me any binding UN Resolution that the UK has not followed?

    Thanks, argtard.

    There is no way that anyone in any walk of life will enter into a conversation where it starts and end with one of the parties getting what they want.

    If you do not understand this then you simply dont want to.

    your constitution in this respect is totally juvenile and no one in the adult world will talk to anyone with such pre conditions. now you have bene told this over and over but you simply will not listen.

    you RG's need to go away, rethink your strategy and totally change your way of thinking.

    I very much doubt that the FI would ever change their views but your stance at the minute is totally counter productive not only to the FI but also to the whole of SA.

    UK Requirements
    UKR 1: Self-determination for the people of falklands as per UN charter (Fixed)
    UKR 2: No ethnic cleansing as per International Criminal Court (Fixed)

    Falklands Requirements
    FR 3: Want to remain British as per status quo (Fixed)

    Argentinian Requirements
    AR 1: Sovereignty of the islands without self-determination (Fixed)
    AR 2: All resources of the islands (Fixed)

    Outcome of negotiation: FAIL, all requirements are fixed.

    So what are the Argentinians hoping to achieve in negotiations? more argtard failure?

    the UK has been never Law abiding country,becouse it has no any constitutional law matters..why ?...that's simple that it is always colonial power...should not have written law matters to avoid from controls on the likely deviated and extreme actions at its colonies.

    In other words that you can never judge the colonial actions in England.
    Merely ,you can carry them into the International Law..

    As we would both hold to we do not want the RG's to keep on getting the support of everyone whilst the FIG gets none. I have faith that the foreign Office can come up with a strategy that involves the FIG making more of themselves in SA.

    If the oil comes about then they are in a superb position to involve everyone in SA bar the RG's. As we both know money talks.

    the RG's need to be isolated and the FI take more of a role in S once they have something really concrete to offer the continent.

    the RG's are utterly shit at politics. Its from the school yard playground but at the minute it works because it is a one sided conversation.

    the RG's will never get the islands - we do know that - but that doesnt stop the FIG getting on with the rest of south america.

    they should shout loud and proud about who they have contacted what the response has been and how they are a peaceful territory who have one wish - to get on with the Brazilians, chileans etc.

    The Rg's will be fucking fuming if they see the Islanders reaching out to say Brazil or Uruguay.

    I'm not a diplomat, I dont know what the tactic should be but so far this has been utterly one sided. Its time to even the diplomacy up and start to put pressure on not only the Rg's but also the rest of SA.

    15# it doesnt matter what the UK, islanders or argentina says, its about what the UN says, and the UN says there most be negociations and self determination is not applied...
    The islanders can be british but as the rest of the british who are living in argentina, being british doenst mean to being ruled by the UK, as the british in others countries are not ruled by the UK neither...
    The UN said it is a sovereignty dispute between 2 countries, not self determination dispute, and every organism told that,
    you said argentina broke the UN resolution, we didnt the military junta did cannot blame a society because of the actions of a dictatorship...
    when it suits them, in 1982 we were a dictatorship, and when it doesn't suits them, dictatorship is the same than democracy...

    utter shit.

    unfortunately you cannot re-write history as you do with this. your military junta was Argentine. It was backed by the people who celebrated when they invaded the FI. you had a responsibility to get rid of the junta ie the Rg people and you never did it until the war was lost. you cannot and will not be allowed to re-write history to make it look as though you were not an accomplis in this/.

    the Un has never, ever said that self determination does not apply and you know that only too well. Unfortunately you make this up as you go along and then get pulled up by us UK bloggers who know the score.


    Utter shit.

    the Uk is the oldest democracy in the world and gave the rest of the world the steer on how its done. we have stood against the Nazis - alone - and would do so again if necessary.

    your portrayal of Argentine as some sort of paragon of virtue is ludicrous.

    whilst colonialism by the Uk has had its low points it also had its high points such as creating the biggest democracy in the world - india and also the most powerful one - the USa.

    the Uk has been a world leader in almost every sport or invention in the modern world including the invention of the computer, the concept of artificial intelligence spurred on by the likes of alan turing and a whole host of things.

    when your President says things such as the UK has 10 of the remaining 16 colonies in the world remember a couple of things:

    1. they wish to remain that way ie they are not forced to be colonies, and
    2. its actually quite a compliment.

    As it stands the Uk is now doing what it has always done, stand up for the little people of the world. We will continue to do so.

    @17 You're right in both points, the best way forwards is to push the messaging of 'we're peaceful and Argentina is crapping on us, but we're going to be dignified'. Victimisation just makes you look a tit and doesn't even convince a child.

    It's been said before, Argentina brings nothing to the table, other than less whinging. It's offering the islanders absolutely nothing at all, just a dictatorship and annexation of a country with a massive amount of corruption, huge levels of poverty and a horrible crime problem. What's it actually bringing to a negotiation table? I've asked before, but none of the Le Camping Argtards ever want to say.

    @18 The UN never said that self-determination isn't applied, because it's a key part of their charter. Show me the GA or SC resolution where it states that it's not going to be applied, give your source.

    The islands are in no way Argentinian. That's a simple fact. You don't even have administration over them, and under international law you lost them when you chose to negotiate by war and lost (uti posseditis).

    Again, the UN says that all territories should be decolonized. Annexation of a territory to another country is colonisation, therefore going against the letter and the spirit of the decolonisation process. Show me where the UN says that colonisation is within its purpose.

    You cannot separate the military junta from Argentina, the people on the streets supported the war, and you ignored the UN on two occasions. We can and will blame the Argentinians for this, because it was a popularly supported move. Show me where millions of Argentinians didn't hit the streets to celebrate the invasion the islands. Even today you celebrate the invasion of the islands and you claim you're a democracy.

    Please respond to my queries, thanks argtard.

    Argentina has 40 millions of inhabitants...or would you say all the germans are nazis too?
    and Did you know that self determination is between the colonizer and colonized? then why does the UN ask for argentina's permission to solve this dispute if they have self determination...
    Why does the UN keeps saying the only way to solve it is by bilateral negociations if they have self determination?
    If it says its a bilateral dispute between argentina and the UK, then the islanders have no voice, ergo no self determination...

    the UN ask for this because you keep on bleating on about it. If the Rg's have a problem then given the right circumstances the UK/FIG would talk to them but not at a position where it starts and ends with Rg sovereignty. thats a ludicrous and extremely childish place to start and no government in the world would do that.

    My question to you is this. The UK has told you that they will only negotiate with the RG's if the Fi want them to. that clearly implies that you RG's have to talk to the FIG. Until you do that nothing will happen. why havent you talked with the FIG?

    It is extremely hypocritical to brain wash your children into believing that on the Fi the population is Rg held at the point of a gun and then to refuse to negotiate with what in effect, and under your version of events, is your own people, but then again very little of the Rg argument makes sense.

    Stamping your feet, crying and shouting time and time again will get you nowhere.

    Its high time you recognise the FIG and started talking to it. talking to the Uk isnt the starting point and the UN should really know this.

    the UN has it wrong. the Uk has said that this discussion begins and ends with the Islanders themselves. The Un should be asking for talks between the FIG and the Argentine govt. however the Un wont because they have no bottle.

    Nestor walked out not because he didnt want the Islanders to have any resources but because he wanted more of them. He walked away thinking that the Rg's would be called back and give na bigger slice of the cake but the FIG and the Uk basically shrugged their shoulders and got on with it.

    a) UN resolution 2065 is from 1965 and was nullified and voided by the 1982 war and your refusal to abide by UN SCR 502. It makes no mention of self-determination being put on hold. Where does the GA or SC mention that for the Falklands self-determination is not relevant?
    b) The UN recognises 2 nations, the administering nation and the newly self-governing nation. Where does it discuss the transfer of sovereignty to a third-nation as a colonising process?
    c) Regardless of the Junta in 1982 where people lined the streets to celebrate the popular war, where can you prove that in 2012 the Argentinians are not celebrating a popular invasion of the Falklands under a 'democracy' as you call it?
    d) The unilateral action of walking out of UN-promoted negotiations by Nestor Kirchner removed the need for the FIG to involve Argentina in further negotiations. UN resolution 31/49 is irrelevant because Argentina unilaterally started a war through invasion and unilaterally walked out of negotiations on resources. How is this unilateral when Nestor Kirchner and Argentina refused to negotiate, and you unilaterally started a war?

    there is absolutely nothing to stop you. nothing.

    here's the conversation for you:

    RG's: “UN, we note that the Uk has said that the opening discussion over the FI is to have a discussion with the FIG, we would like to have this discussion please and then move on to the Brits if we get anywhere”.

    UN “ new resolution passed that the FIG has to talk to the Rg's”.

    @38 a) Nestor Kirchener walked out of negotiations over oil and fish resources in the region. The UK was upholding any UN resolution, and Nestor Kirchener unilaterally walked out of negotiations. There could be no agreement because of Argentina, leaving the FIG to act independently. The UK and the FIG abided by the UN resolution, Argentina did not.
    b) the UN says that the administering power and the self-governing territory should be involved in decolonisation, NOT a third party that desires the self-governing territory. Where does the UN talk about transfer of sovereignty? Where does it discuss suspension of the charter with regards to self-determination?
    c) In 2012 the Argentinians celebrated the start of the 1982 Invasion of the Falklands which resulted in UN SCR 502 and 505 being ignored. How can you say it was not a popular war when the start of it is still being celebrated?
    d) Nestor Kirchner took the only unilateral action when he decided he didn't want to negotiate as per the UN resolution. This makes Argentina at fault, NOT the UK or the FIG.
    e) What exactly is Argentina bringing to the negotiation table? It doesn't have control of the territory, the people, nor the resources, nor de facto control, so what is it bringing to the table?

    Can you please try to answer at least one of the questions, because so far you have failed to answer one of them.

    @42 You've failed to answer the questions. I've read the resolutions and they say nothing about what I asked. You're officially a bit sh!t.

    The facts:

    a) The UN never said that self-determination doesn't apply to the Falklands. Argentina said it, because Argentina hates self-determination.
    b) The UN never talks about transferring/annexing/colonising an administered territory to a third power, as this goes against the Charter of the UN. The UN talks about decolonising, i.e. giving the Falklands independence.
    c) You celebrated the start of the invasion of the falklands today. You still celebrate this popular war, because it was popular, and not as a result of a Junta.
    d) Nestor Kirchner took unilateral action to cease negotiations, the UK/FI then were perfectly in their rights to choose to develop the resources with Argentina in absentia.
    e) Argentina brings nothing to the negotiation table.

    These are the answers to the questions I asked. Feel free to read them, learn them and stop saying things you apparently know nothing about.

    Get over it, furkface.

    I can only assume that your brain washing is complete or you are completely fucking dense because you evade every single question put to you.

    “Argentina accept to respect the way of living of the islanders and their interests”.

    what a load of utter fucking shit. do you think we are all fucking as stupid as you. you would have them off the island within a week. La Campora would see to that as their first priority.

    “Argentina is not required to acept to negociate trading natural resources...because thats our resources, you are saying we most to acept to share our resources with you? no UN resolution or UN right say that.”

    they are not your resources. they have never been your resources, arent and never will be. there is no dispute over the islands except in your own tiny minds. you gave up any right to any claim on the islands in 1850 - another agreement that you refuse to respect.

    now talk to the FIG like a good lad and see where it gets you. you have never abided by a UN Resolution yet so there is no reason why you keep on harping on about them.

    the Un told you to get off the islands in 1982 when you illegally invaded sovereign territory of another nation and you refused to do it. We spoke with Nestor about the resources and he walked away from it. you walk away from everything and you are simply not to be trusted about anything.

    The fact is, everything Argentina says in the UN undermines the UN charter. Your talk is all about recolonisation, so I can hardly see why you think you won a debate in the UN. In addition, you typically ignore UN demands and suggestions, by walking out of negotiations as an example.

    there is no fucking point in debating such an issue with you.

    “So after that i will came to this forum again and you'll see AGAIN how the UN doenst recognize the self determination...ok”?


    you signed the fucking UN charter man that has as one of its first point the right of every person on Planet Earth to self determination.

    Remember that the nearest there is to an indigenous population on the islands is British. there has never factually been an indigenous population on the falklands but what there is now is the nearest there is to one - you know, Argentines being held at the point of a gun by the Uk military - LOL.

    “The UK has told you that they will only negotiate with the RG's if the Fi want them to. that clearly implies that you RG's have to talk to the FIG. Until you do that nothing will happen. why havent you talked with the FIG?”

    You are wrong, UK (a sovereign nation) cannot tell Argentina (another sovereign nation) what to do its that simple.

    UK as the party enveloped disputing sovereignty over the rocks should sit with Argentina to arrange a civilised way to return the Islands to Argentina.

    Then you can desire if you want to be British and go back to Britain or remain under Argentinians law.

    Meanwhile UK keeps its intransigence none will blame Argentina to use military force again to exercise her rights to defend her legitimate interest.

    So my question is why delaying what would be inevitable?

    From my point of view if Argentina wants these Islands back should fight another war against UK and I will personally include Ascension Islands in the menu.

    So instead of paying close to 4b to IMF for doing nothing that would be expended on weapons.

    @50 let's look at it this way, which aspects of the UN does the UK and Argentina engage with.

    UN Charter - UK signed, ARG disagrees (self-determination)
    UN GA - UK abides by decisions, ARG doesn't (Nestor unilaterally left negotiations)
    UN SC - UN abides by decisions, ARG doesn't (UNSCR 502 & 505)
    UN ICJ - UK accepts jurisdiction, ARG doesn't
    UN ICA - UK accepts jurisdiction, ARG doesn't
    UN C24 - UK does not engage with, ARG does (discussion of colonisation)

    So basically the only part of the UN that Argentina has any joy for is the C24 which it uses to discuss colonising other people's territories, which is completely against the UN remit.

    The policy of harassment of Cristina to the islands will not work if you really want to reach an agreement on long-term sovereignty we must integrate them so that the islanders interact with us. What makes Cristina is nothing but hate cause the islanders and so never reach anywhere. There should be integration policies as scholarships and remove the blockage. Should be added that Cristina is doing not only demagoguery, Cameron also has internal problems and one way or another also makes use of demagoguery, they both use it serves to deflect other important topics.

    I think some of the problem might be that quite a few of the member countries of the C24 don't really have to deal with self-determination as a concept. China (single party state), Cuba (single party state), Fiji (military dictatorship), Iran (theocracy), Mali (which is mid-military coup at the moment), Russia (with their revolving President and Prime Minister) and Syria (which might be too busy shelling it's own citizenry to attend) are all there supposedly supporting the self determination of the territories on their little list.

    Shame they're not so hot on supporting the right of self determination of their own populations.

    But that knowledge that they aren't so hot on supporting the right of self determination of their own populations is also an advantage, because that is why the UN C24 will NEVER adopt the sort of statements / resolutions that Argentina wants them to adopt. The worst that will ever materialise is another in a stream of resolutions asking for negotiations - and not even necessarily negotiations over sovereignty .. just negotiations (which the UK government can easily show have taken place and were broken off by Argentina).

    @63 I'm all for getting the list reduced. Of course the de-colonisation mission for C-24 was about getting European states,weakened by the war, to loosen and lose their hold on overseas territory with native non- European populations (the so-called salt water colonialism). Most of your examples don't have the racist undertones associated with that core driver. Argentina was able to capitalise on that anti-European sentiment to get what is actually a territorial dispute onto the C24 agenda.

    The UN general assembly has advised that the UK and Argentina (as the two sovereign powers) negotiate. However, the UK has decided (as is its sovereign right) to give the FIG power of veto, and the Argentine constitution explicitly forbids negotiation.

    C24 is NOT the UN, and it's various pronouncements and resolution (which barely register outside of the closeted world of the C24) are advisory at best, and a consequence of intense bias and diplomatic lobbying (by Argentina).

    No organ, I repeat NO ORGAN, of the UN has leave to dismiss the right to self-determination. It is a foundational principal of the UN and it MUST be respected in any negotiations between sovereign powers (or between colonies and their governing powers for that matter). Your notion that self-determination is 'not applicable' is moribund!

    The Falkland Islands aren't 'ruled' by the UK. They have their own government, but they are administered by the UK. That is to say that certain sovereign powers, such as foreign relations and defence, are handled by the UK. There is a distinction, if you'd care to educate yourself! Furthermore, your suggestion that the Islanders can be British, but under Argentine sovereignty, is complete tripe. That would make them foreigners in their own land!

    The UN has not 'said' that the dispute is purely a sovereignty dispute between Britain and Argentina. Certainly, the general assembly has passed advisory (non-binding) resolutions requesting negotiations (diplomatic fatique and a noble, is naive, desire for peace), but that does extend to what you say!

    Argentina broke the UN resolution. The Military Junta WAS YOUR government, however illegitimate you may feel it was. Of course, all of that aside, we can blame your current 'democracy' for its absurd 'bullyplomacy' and acts of economic aggression. There's nothing peaceful or peaceloving about the current administrations sabre-rattling and posturing!
