    She is a spoilt detested lady, looking desperately for help.

    No calls to the others, just these two,
    Mr Holland was refused a meeting with the British prime minister, and he has a very shallow liking for the British,
    And we all know what putin thinks,

    But alas, this mr Holland, has many walls to climb before he gets round to the British, if he ever does,
    He came in on a promise, he has in fact, inherited the frying pan, from the fire,
    Merkle of Germany says NO to German money, or alteration of the treaty,
    Mr Holland is /was elected to alter both, and to spend his way out of trouble,
    And the unions will bring him down if he fails to reign in Germany,

    So Mr Holland, welcome to real world of politic corruption incompetence and back stabbing,

    We wish you well, as you are going to need every bit of it .

    So where are all of Britain's friends compared to Argentina then?

    France seems not, from what I just read here.
    Putin same.
    Spain we know what the issue is.
    Italy, drifted from UK since Berlusconi days.
    China is frosty.
    South America ex-Argentina, iffy with the Falklands matter.
    Germany? With the transanction tax we know the current state, Merkel hasn't met cameron any time recently
    Scotland? Maybe drifting away
    USA? Obama still there
    Venezuela? LOL
    Iran? ROTFL

    So where is this entire world that some Brits here claim support them and trust to the hip?

    Don't tell me there is some gross overestimating going on?

    Get off your self-proclaimed high ground. More pro-Malvinistas on this site claim the world's support than pro-Falklands bloggers by a significant number. It stands to reason because it's the Malvinistas who need the world's support. After all, they're the ones who are trying to force a change.

    I admire you in a way Tobias. Your bitterness towards the UK is so strong that you come on all of these Malvinas vs. Falklands discussions just to get stuck into the UK. Even though you think the Falklands should remain in our hands you still need to have a pop at the UK. Fair enough.

    @3 - Tobias, you're the most incompetent Malvinista on here. It's unbelievable you idiots still think ANYBODY cares about this stupid issue your pathetic country has.

    France = Will spend its way into oblivion because the people refuse to cut back, so they really aren't a factor as they bend over for Germany.
    Russia = Putin could not care less about Argentina's embarrassing government. He's too concerned trying to reform the Soviet Union.
    Spain = Very likely to back any action against Argentina as they WITHDREW from supporting you, and you recently STOLE their company, enraging the Spanish press.
    Italy = Less important than Ethiopia on the world stage, and EU enemy no.2 when it comes to the financial crisis.
    China = Economy likely beginning to recede, has enough to worry about in the South China Sea involving the Philippines.
    South America = I believe these “brothers” of yours humiliated you at the Americas summit by not even discussing this stupid issue.
    Germany = Too busy bailing out the Eurozone to matter in any way.
    Scotland = Still part of the UK last time I checked, moron.
    USA = Obama just lost several swing states in the south by flip flopping on gay marriage (not to mention Latinos heavily oppose this idea)
    Venezuela = Chavez has death in sight (thank God) Who will KFC take orders from then?
    Iran = Likely to be a warzone in the next five months, if Israel's recent government shakeup is anything to go by.

    Perhaps you need to go and rethink this one. Argentina is the joke of the world.

    Argentina seems to be intent on making the same mistakes Germany made in the last century. But there is one aggravating factor: in contrast to the latter, which led the charge against its enemy, the former wants to outsource all of its casualties. Add to a vile disposition the highest degree of cowardice, and you get the mindset of Brazil's neighbour from hell. Fortunately, its attempts at manipulation are ludicrously amateurish. Tobias, it is only by means of war that your country can dream of annexing the Falkland Islands, and in such a blatantly immoral endeavour it will always be alone. Nobody will ever be to it what the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have consistently been to the United Kingdom. Brazil in particular will not shed any blood for it. Please face the fact that it has neither military nor soft power, and change your ambitions.

    You're the gift that keeps on giving. With your ludicrous rants and uneducated posts you're what's known in the English speaking world as a 'gift horse'. I'm not sure on the Spanish translation is as I don't know the word for twat!

    France: “we are natural partners in security and defence and our countries share values, global interests and responsibilities”

    Putin: Russia hasn't been one of Britain’s friends for a long time, about 1917 actually.

    Spain: “we know what the issue is” - yes, another Spanish speaking country on the verge of collapse using the UK to distract popular opinion away from the REAL issues. Why worry about massive unemployment and the collapse of the banking system when the UK owns a rock! Look at the pretty rock (fingers crossed - ignore the banks)... look...that rock.....the British stole it!

    China: Friends? Since when?

    South America: The only SA country with a FI problem is Argentina. Guess what...despite what Alicia Castro says, Argentina does NOT speak for SA. Nobody cares!

    Germany: Have you ever met a German? Of all the countries in Europe they have more in common with the Brits than any other. They may disagree about the transaction tax, but they have (which you don't) an understanding of 'respect'. It's an interesting concept, you may want to look it up, although I suspect you won't understand it.

    Scotland: Still part of the UK. If they choose independence, as they are entitled to under the concept of self determination (which you don't believe in) then the rest of the UK will wish them all the best. They will still remain neighbours, friends and allies.

    USA: Over 400 years of shared history with the UK against 3 years of BO. Of course the US will back you.

    Venezuela & Iran: Really? I assume you ran out of countries?

    Face it. No one likes you, no one trusts you, and f it comes to the crunch no one backs you...except Venezuela...ha ha ha ha!

    In the words of Charles de Gaulle, in international relations, there are no friends, only interests. So Argentina's interests are met by CFK's stalking of the new presidents of France and Russia is expected - they are permanent UN Security Council members, and would be useful to help secure Argentina as non-permanent member at the 67th General Assembly in October, representing Latin America and the Caribbean.

    Argentina probably figures that UK will oppose, perhaps US too, but China would probably support Argentina.

    Certainly Putin isn't friendly with Britain now, but while the Russian might like projecting power through their huge navy, getting into the South Atlantic region could be problematic.

    In some ways, Putin might want to keep his projection of power closest around Russia's maritime frontiers and not venture too far. Of course, Russia has its exclave Kaliningrad and disputed Kurile Islands, so might be some sensitivity there about any support for Argentina's position on the Falklands. Ditto France as fellow EU member with Overseas Territories might not want to get into anything too deep with CFK.

    Probably both Russia and France would hope that Argentina wants “friendship” bad enough that CFK will buy weaponry, as both France and Russia have lots to sell.

It's often brought up on these forums that the Argtard education system is so completely and utterly furked that they don't even know about French Guyana or Aruba.. or a good many other places that are either a geographical part of South America or basically on the coast.

    Argtards are basically massively ignorant and uneducated husks, so all she has to do is tell them some nonsense, phone up the French President to congratulate him and somehow not mention French Guyana and then complain about the Falklands.

    Internally she's just praying on their ignorance, externally she's just trolling for attention. Best thing to do with a troll is just to ignore it, because that makes them mad.

    What a ridiculous headline, its entirely normal for a President to congratulate a newly elected President, especially if they agree on economics (not that I expect Hollande to be as radical or as successful as Cristina, but any influence she can have on him is to the good) and for Presidents to meet at the G20, of which Argentina is, always has been and always will be a member =)

    #11 ”Venezuela = Chavez has death in sight (thank God) Who will KFC take orders from then?“

    I don't believe Chavez is certain to die, but he has never given orders to my Queen, in fact he confessed at one international summit to taking orders from her. I hope he lives so they can continue to learn from each others experiences for years to come, but it always amazes me how the same people who call Cristina a dictator see her as unable to think for herself. Is it because she's a woman?

    ”Iran = Likely to be a warzone in the next five months, if Israel's recent government shakeup is anything to go by.“

    If there is a war in Iran, up goes the whole Middle East, its oil, and the economies of the world. Lets hope for both our sakes it doesn't happen

    @38 - I almost spat out my grape juice! Ron Paul! hahaha. You really are delusional. That old zombie hasn't won anything substantial in his entire life, and 99% of people know he's a crazy coot. Meanwhile, Rasmussen (who survey likely voters) has Romney at an all time high at 51% against Obama who is somewhere near 43%. You're just very scared because Romney has had his campaign actually mention that the US should back the UK on the Falklands. Poor Argentina. :( You get more desperate and pathetic each day.

    @3 Thing is that Britain doesn't NEED anyone. I can drown argieland if I spit. YOU have nothing and YOU are nothing. What does argieland have? You have a worthless currency. You have 30% inflation. You have mass unemployment. You have a massive crime rate. You have poverty. Real poverty. You have no access to international money. You have no “friends” except the ones you bully and the ones intent on taking your country for their own purposes. Good luck with that!
    @24 We couldn't do that. We'd get saddled with some very nasty neighbours. Then we'd have to make sure they could never be nasty again. Fun for us but not fun for the neighbours. But more neighbours!
    @32 But you're still not isolated, are you? You still want to talk to others.
    @33 No, you can't go to Malvinas. Because they don't exist. But dream on, Peter Pan. You'll find it's called Wonderland.
    @38 Then you won't mind British F-35s flying over Buenos Aires, will you? Just to show you that the UK is the ONLY country with full access to the technology. Although we will no doubt improve it!

    Yawn. The UK is the USAs forth largest creditor after China, Japan and Russia. So I fail to see how Goldman is the UKs master.
    The special relationship is not about governments it is about the general goodwill between the people of both countries.
    “Brits are nothing without the US”? er, well I would say they are Brits.

    @59 Of course there is happiness in my life. I am in paroxyms of joy as I tell most argies and a number of other cretinous south americans what I think of them. Are you encountering misery? Goodie! You deserve it. As for that “waste of natural resources”, turn around, bend over and I'll shove it all where it deserves to be. I don't have a brother. What you need to understand is that south americans are well down the league table in potential intelligence and things I care about. Above you comes Asia. Then Australia and New Zealand. Then the United States. Then Europe, sometimes. except when they piss me off. And finally, right up at the top of the tree and in a perfect position to drop clag on anyone, Britain. Well, most of Britain. Scotland is teetering on the brink of becoming part of Europe. Not surprising as they have often had a blowjob relationship with the French. Then there's the Northern Irish who have a lot to answer for. The Welsh are mostly OK as their main claims to fame are sheep and singing. I'm quite keen on the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. But nowhere, of course, compares to beautiful England. I hope this helps you understand your place in the great scheme of things. So you can quit wasting your time trying to make me “feel” something about you. I already know what you are and, to make it clear without being unnecessarily rude, you cannot aspire to the same level of estimation that I give to the stuff I may be forced to scrape off my boots after traversing a field used for grazing cattle.

    The sheep deny you? They prefer the younger lads mayhap? Try a tie, and polish them boots! :)

    #62 But Conqueror, isn't the irony that one of the things that makes Britain such a green and pleasant land for its people is precisely the famous British tolerance, a tolerance in which your posts are singularly lacking
