British nuke submarine HMS Talent was dispatched this week end to the Falkland Islands “with Tomahawk warheads” on what could be a warning signal to Argentina, according to UK sensationalist tabloid The Sun. Read full article

    Is Mercopress sending a subtle message that HMS Talent has a surveillance role, AND that the Sun is accused of telephone hacking? Well, if Talent makes Argentina at all nervous, rest assured it will stay further away from Argentina than the new Brazilian nuke-subs when they get built in a few years.

    Personally, I can't get enough of these “mild reminders of what we are facing”.

    It shows the World and especially all our friends in the Region (including Chile) what type of bully we are facing.

    An atomic bully that would do almost anything to steal natural resources from anyone weak or disunite.

    Hope this Sun story is true. (for once)

    @4 Bullying? What, like blockading shipping or air routes? That sort of bullying? ... or do you mean sending 10,000 soldiers to take some islands from 2,500 civilians, that sort of bullying?
    @6 given Argentina's behaviour lately I really don't think the world is going to criticise the UK sending a submarine to protect British people, the UK would also have discussed this with NATO before deploying the ship so that's most western powers already not giving a flying fick about what Argentina says.

    @Think ,Marcos Alejandro and Argentines in general.

    I wonder why we have to deploy SSNs like HMS Talent to the Falklands?

    Oh wait, I know it's because in 1982, some hostile country, not a million miles from the islands invaded them and forced them to endure a horrible facist occupation!

    A occupation that would have ended in the islanders being forcibly deported en masse if HMS Talents predecessors (like HMS Conqueror) had'nt arrived to fight to liberate them.

    I think this could be the same country that keeps on claiming that it wants to annex/occupy the Falklands to this day and keeps on trying to humiliate/isolate and pressurise the Falklanders to surrender and learn spanish or leave the islands.

    It may be to deter that country from having another go at invasion or stage some sort of military stunt in the area, so that it gets the message that we are'nt messing about when we say that we will defend the Falklanders.

    Anyway -we can send ships anywhere we damn well like, we have the freedom of the high seas. Get over it.

    It's a gentle reminder the UK can impose its will on Argentina anytime it wishes.

    As for bullying, only an Argentine would suggest such a thing, nobody who is sane would suggest such a thing given Argentina's continued harassment of 3,000 islanders. In fact the more Argentina harasses the islanders the easier it make it for the UK to deploy additional armed forces to the area.

    It doesn't matter anyway these are UK waters and the UK will move any military hardware/personnel there it wishes and there is zero Argentina can do about it.

    The sub is a response to Argentine behaviour. Britain has done nothing wrong and this is merely protection against increasingly psychotic behaviour. Every country in the world would seek to reassure its citizens if threatened by other nations with a penchant for nationalistic behaviour. Argentina behave and leave our people in peace.

    It's not quite on a par with “Freddie Star ate my hampster” as a headline(which sums up the standard of journalism that the Sun provides).

    I wouldn't be surprised if they are making it up.
    I also wouldn't be surprised if they've assumed something from inadequate information.
    Neither would I be surprised if it was deliberately leaked.

    I think that my favourite version of the supposed events would be that it was deliberately leaked that Talent was heading to the Falkland Islands in order to provoke the usual Twitterman over reaction, at which point Talent sails in full view of everyone into Little Creek or San Diego for a port visit.
    How many cries of wolf do Argentina think they get?

    It doesn't really matter whether Talent or Dauntless or any other vessel of hardware is in the territorial waters of the Falklands or not.

    Just the very suggestion of the possibility of these deployments is sufficient for Argies to have brown trousers (matching their nice brown shirts).
    In other words, the thought of a naval presence is enough to put them off doing anything (and I mean anything) more than rattling their pirates's sabres.

    I'm pretty sure that the facts about this Trafalgar class SSN will be quoted incorrectly around the world. Although this is a nuclear POWERED sub it is very different in it's role to the Vanguard SSBN.

    Trafalgar = a 280 feet long sub carrying Tomahawk cruise missles and very likely to be there to protect HMS Dauntless in an anti-shipping role, or as said surveillance.

    Vanguard - nearly 500 feet long! carrying Trident thermonuclear warheads and really of no use in protecting the interests of the Falkland community against any aggression. Certainly their location is never known. Wrong tool for the job - 'a sledgehammer to crack a nut'

    I'm sure these fact will be glossed over and it probably won't be long before the media and the Argentine gov says that there are nuclear weapons in the South Atlantic.

    By why let FACTS get in the way...

    These boats are really some piece of kit, when I think of submarines, I get a mental picture of the Captain looking through the periscope at a ship in the distance. All those movies I suppose. Apparently they can identify a specific ship from over a 100 miles away by listening to its acoustic signature, the noise their screws make in the water. Each signature is as unique to a ship as a fingerprint is to a human. Fantastic technology when you think of it.

    This is extremely simple:

    If the Falkland Islanders choose to be governed as part of Argentina then the British Government will support it with it's full military and political power.

    It is called self-determination.

    There has NEVER been an Argentine civilian population on the Falklands. NEVER. There has been a French, a British, a Spanish, an independent and a British again...multiple military presence from numerous countries, but no Argentine civilian population...

    So, no displaced indigenous population...therefore the present population hold ll the cards....what do they want?

    In 2009 a wealthy Venezuelan working for the Chavez's government was caught with a suitcase full of cash in Miami and was sentenced to 4 years in a US prison for illegally importing money. Testimony in the two-month trial raised allegations that the suitcase was part of a larger gift of about $5 million dollars from Chavez for CFK's political campaign.

    44- Threatens your freedom your on drugs. Sending one submarine to defend OUR islands from government keen to foster popularist propaganda. Its serves the purpose of distraction of population from the economic problems and her feathering of her own nest as someone else put it. Its been going on for year.

    So sabre rattling isnt banning british and falklands flagged vessels from docking, changing the constitution to claim the islands, threatening legal action against british companies and oil companies linked with the falklands, threatening to cut an air link to the islands, filming an illegal propaganda film claiming the soil of the falklands, telling fishermen to fish immature squid before it reaches the islands to damage the fishing industry. This has all been done within the last year!!! so how pray tell have the UK been the agressor in all of this, apart from giving the RG's a spanking back in 82 after the illegal invasion, interesting that the RG's were going to move the resident falklanders off the islands, leaving it free for RG colonists.

    Guzz - If you were indeed a Uruguayan, you'd know that the vast majority of our population was against both the dictatorship and the terrorist Tupamaros who had cowardly attacked the democratic gov't years earlier. (The Tupamaros never actually fought the dictatorship). In Argentina, however, on the day of the invasion of the Falklands, 99% of the people were mindlessly jumping up and down in the streets, chanting “el que no salta es un inglés”. I know, I was there. These people only turned against the Argentine dictatorship when Galtieri lost the war. Argentina has no democratic traditions, the voters are gullible and unsophisticated, and most have a hankering for Fascism. A true Uruguayan in 2012 will never take the Argentine side (unless he's being paid to do so). If you'd been in Uruguay in 1982, you'd remember that the immense was on the side of the British, or should I say, against Argentina. I don't see anything different this time round - even the gov't is getting sick and tired of Argentine pranks.

    I am aware of the fact that many uruguayans disagree in the methods used by the tupamaros, but still, what you state is incorrect, as the vast majority of the uruguayans elected Pepe Mujica, a Tupamaro leader, for their President.
    The only reason the Tupamaros didn't fight openly was because the 9 rehenes where to be killed had they continued their actions (ask Antonio Mas Mas if he didn't fight). Of course all where against Argentina in the invasion, I would still never defend that act of lunacy, but that doesn't mean I, and our government, still defend Argentinas claims.
    You say 99% of the Argentines were happy about Galtieris invasion, because you were there... I take it you were all over Argentina, because 99% of the population is a LOT :)

    There is a small garrison of some 1250 or so including servicing personnel and four Tyhoon aircraft. And why are they there? Your Argie mates invaded in 1982 against 40 marines, That was a brave act was it not - and you support this.

    Not to defend the islands (BTW Malvinas is NOT Spanish for the Falklands) from these cowardly acts would be extremely foolish and ANY UK Government who sold the islanders out would suffer an immediate vote of no confidence in the UK Parliament and be out of power.

    Britains will NEVER be browbeaten by any nation, expecially one made up of gangsters, thieves and the rejects of Europe which is what Argentina is today. Facism failed in the 1930s / 40s but some people never learn: it will fail again, now in Argentina.

    @94 - Unknown. I don't know where you hail from in the world but I've never heard of Britian, is it eastern European? Just kidding. Please learn how to spell the name of the country you claim you come from. BRITAIN.

    Actually the reason the Argie trolls like Guzz (he pretends to be Uruguayan as he's embarrassed to admit he's an Argentinian), are worried about 1 nuclear powered sub, is because they ate all scared sh!tless of it. In 1982 one RN submarine sank 1 Argentine ship, and the rest of the Argentine navy ran back to port and didn't come out to play for the rest of the war.

    They try to tell the world that Britain is militarising the South Atlantic, a bold statement which has every nation in the world sniggering at them, because these claims are absurd.

    So in order to deter the entire Argentine armed forces (and if you believe the trolls the whole of South America - which are on their side - honest!) takes 1 destroyer, 4 fighter aircraft, approx 1,000 military personnel, and the possibility that there might be a submarine in the area.

    They want the British to remove these deterrents so they can just walk into the Falklands and take over. Unfortunately for the government of Argentina the British aren't as stupid as the average Argentine voter and don't fall for their 'cunning' plans.

    Argentina can only be scared of the brit submarine if they plan to invade the Falklands. It is only a threat to an invading force, and how UK is suddenly militarising the area when the same forces have been there for 25 years, shows how ignorant the Argentines are. There is no extra militarisation, but there will be when Argentina cannot resist the urge to invade again.

    Guzz, the fake Uruguayan
    Lista 609 is Lucía Topolansky, I think. However, as I'm not a Frente Amplio supporter I haven't paid much notice to that party's internal elections held this long weekend. BTW, Carlos Gardel was born in Tacuarembó. And the murder of an employee of La Pasiva, opposite the Crandon School, crossing 8 de Octubre and Garibaldi, has caused Topolanski's husband to tell more of his lies. And Ramírez wants the military in the streets, fighting crime. Remember Ramírez? You've no idea who he is, or who he accused of stealing some years ago.
    I'm Uruguayan all right, thank God. You're not. Hope you're paid punctually, because Argentine currency is worth less by the day.

    Even if the Iraq war was illegal (I see this war as being an unnecessary diversion of resources when we should have concentrated on Al-Qaeda and Afghanistan. We should have finished Saddam in 1991),

    Even if they arrested Tony Blair (good riddance - this man was one of the authors of our current economic situation and flooded the country with immigrants in order to change the national demographic in the Labour parties favour, thinking that the newcomers would be inclined to vote Labour.)

    How would that advance your claim to the Falklands?

    It would'nt, and you know it. Your whole argument is, frankly irrelevant other than as a way of venting your frustration at your lack of success in removing the islanders or crushing them under a second occupation.

    Your desire to occupy the Falklands is even less justifiable than the war in Iraq. It is based purely on racism and a greed for land you never really had a claim to.

This is vibrant, much visited, well travelled community and nobody is, as you suggest, forced to pick an unsuitable partner due to lack of choice. I can't believe you even came up with the idea.

    Sorry didn't read the subtitles for the articles, but again read the one I was talking about. It doesn't say that they agree with Argentina.
    And I like the fact that you claim the FALKLAND ISLANDERS are blood dependant, when your theory doesn't really maake sense at all.
    Also Brazil are more of a frien to us, than they are with Argentina, even if they don't agree with our claim over the FALKLANDS.
    Furthermore, don't know why you are talking about the war in Iraq, because we don't need the international community, who are blinded from the fact that he was a dictator and killed HUNDREDS of thousands of his own people, tell us if it is legal or not because we don't really care as we were right to invade and topple his regime, even if there no bioweapons there.
    A quick rule:
    A country or group of countries can come to a decision legally to invade a country if there is a threat in that country to their own people, to try and help them. We did help them, and I would say that Iraq is safer than it was 10-15 years ago. I'm not saying that it is necesserily safe though, because I do acknowledge that there are still suicide bombings happening every couple of months, and people die unfortunately (not really important though).
    Once again I will say this, Britain will keep the FALKLANDS because of the fact that no-one can do anything about it ;)

They ruined Scotland during the 80s and 90s, and why do you think that they only have 1 MP in the whole country, and Labour and the SNP have more. Because they have no clue on how to run a country without ruining the lives of middle and lower class people. They only had one decent policy, and that was the one where people could have the right to buy council houses. Just 1 from a history going back many decades.
    I'm not saying that Labour were a very effective government, but they were and still are a damn sight better than the Tory governments of the past and present. And I'm pretty sure that's how a lot of people will feel in a years time, when they fuck up the country big time.

    This is very important news, for all those ignorants who love arguing all the time, about a sopossed threat of invasion by argentina. Anyway, unfortunatelly you have no idea about how far from the reality you are, you are just wasting a lot of money sending submarines, destroyers etc etc, which might be used to improve britain's economic situation. If you think that arg. is a threat, i'll give you some important information. In 1982, our budget of deffence represented the 3% of the g. d. p, now it represents the 0,9%, it's one of the lowest from south america. What the argentine government made with our budget of deffence, is almost a desarme, and i agree absolutly with that, we dont need to militarise the country, because we dont live under any invasion threat, beside we dont invade vulnerable populations, like some powerful nations do, just to steal them the oil recources. Anyway i understand that some of the ignorants who post comments here everyday, and who hate arg. histerically, those people who always make ignorant comparisons, and buy so easily the so partial analysis of the politicians, won't understand what i say about the situations of my country, respecting that sopossed threat that you love arguing all the time, which is used only to justify the british occupation in the malvinas-falkland islands.

    Basically its absolutely true, our military, be it army, navy or air force is in such straits that it would be difficult for them to defend thier bases against the civilian population let alone attacking the Falklands.

    This business about “blood dependence” that Guzz has come up with is very interesting. I personally can't find any references to these exact words, but as I understand Guzz believes that the Falkland Islanders are in danger of in-breeding because of lack of numbers. Well a well established biological rule of thumb for the viability of populations is a minimum of 160 individuals (80 female and 80 male).
    I don't off hand know what the distribution of the sexes are in the Islands, but assuming the normal 50/50 split it would appear that 3000 individuals will keep the population pretty fit for the next few centuries without taking into account the freshening of the gene pool from people coming in from outside (oil people, fishing crews, etc.) or from the spouses found outside the Island's indigenous gene pool.

    But of very limited experience outside of running electricity and manufacturing radio isotope for medical purposes.

    The only reactor that went out of the country (to Oz) for the production of isotopes suffered major failures and had to be closed down for a long period while things were rectified by Australia themselves.

    They do sell a number of reactors abroad but these are strictly open pool zero-watt units, used for research.

    With regard to their sub progamme, this is somewhat akin to a lifesize lego project. They are starting with the old Thyssen 1700s which they purchased new from Germany in the mid 1980s and intend to cut the hulls open, remove the existing diesel engines and replace it with a small reactor, steam turbine and alternator (which might be the one off the diesel) and connect it to the existing Siemens electric motor. They will then have to close the hull.

    What will they have then? Forget the 2015 deadline: at best it will be 2020 (source INVAP themselves) and they will have a sub that is already almost 40 years old fitted with a prototype reactor which will be unproven. It may kettle very badly and be noisier than the German diesels, it may be quiet, who knows?

    Who cares? The Argies seem incapable of realising they will be so far behind the curve on nuclear sub propulsion that it really doesn't matter what they do.

    There are already some very stealthy diesel subs available that are much quieter than anything INVAP can come up with. But of course you have to BUY these with USD so they are out of the question. There was some talk of the Netherlands being involved in this fiasco with the CAREM prototype reactor but I can hardly credit it.

    The Brits by 2020 will already have in the water the follow up to the new class of subs which must already put the bejebbers up the Argie Navy.

    So, the usual BS we have come to expect from The Mad Bitch of Argentina, ably aided and abetted by Polycelli The Wop 'Defence Minister'.

    Axel- who is stealing oil from somebody? news to me? I know CFK stole some oil company shares off the Spanish just recently but unaware of anyone stealing oil?
    Certainly not here as our legislation is very clear on whom any oil revenue belongs to if there is any commercial development- it belongs to the Falkland Islands.
    As for Subs and Destroyers etc - Axel - they cost nothing extra They are part of the overall UK Defence - they sail about the world anyway - regardless of the Falklands. There is only ONE small coastal patrol vessel that was built for the islands - HMS Clyde - and now she is built and paid for, even if the islands were no longer here - she would still stay in the Royal Navy as they would instead make use of her around UK and the North Sea etc.
    Same with all the forces here - if the Islands were not here they would all still be paid and trained within the UK forces - they are NOT extra people just for basing here.
    The ONLY Falklands related cost to the British Govt defence is the cost of getting people here and back and their shipping freight logistics etc. That is why the Falklands cost UK a mere £70-100million a year - less than 0.5 of 1 % of the toal UK Defence Budget!
    Even in todays times the Falklands are not exactly a drain on UK finances!!!!!

    Currently that £100million is a good investment as UK must be getting several £100,s of millions in materials, shipping income, oilworker wages and their taxes etc etc each year because CFK and Nestor tore up the Offshore Hydrocarbons Agreement and so instead of Arg and S.America sharing in the business and jobs from exploration- UK is getting all 100% of it that cannot be supplied locally!

    HONORIA: It was obvious that you were going to victimize your side only, with out recognizing that you are not acting correctly either. I recognize that my country didn't act correctly in some oportunities after 1982, which is repudiable, but at the same time, you have always clarified that you are dispossed to discuss about different issues with arg. except the sovereignty, which is the main problem, so, you are not acting correctly either. Anyway i dont expect any critic from you about the behaviors of the u. k and the assembly from the islands, because the only one thing you know how to do, is to victimize your side only. Unfortunatelly, this is evident that you won't understand that the intransigence of your side has a huge responsability in the actual scenario fo the dispute.
    LEIARD: I understand that the maybe that submarne doesn't have any extra cost for the u. k, but you are expending a lot of money, keeping a huge base in mount pleasant, which is actually unnecesary, because you are not under any invasion threat, if you need to deploy that submarine, you can send it to another british colony which is not as far as the islands, my question is, if you know that the islands won't be invaded, then why are you militarising the south atlantic more and more?.
    ISLANDER: You are making an ignorant comparison respecting what you say about ypf, we didn't steal anything, we just recovered what was sold during the decade of the 90's, beside, you dont say a word about the lack of inverstment by repsol, which prejudiced us so much, that omision shows that actually you know so little about this issue.
    Respecting the deployment of the submarine, read what i typed for leiard.
    On the other hand, you blame only c. f. k and nestor, for the oil agreement, but at the same time, you have always clarified that you are dispossed to talk about different issue with arg, but not the sovereignty, so, you are not acting correctly either.

    If you say that the u. k is adopting a positive deffence for the islands, given the posture of our government, i suggest you to read my comment 154, and you'll realise that you are just wasting a lot of money.
    On the other hand, if you are so sure about the application of the right to self determination for the islanders, you should know that the u. n has never invoked that right for this dispute, like it did for others colonial situations. Beside, the decolonization committe has always considered this cause like a particular colonial situation. Anyway, the u. n has never asked the u. k to return the islands to arg., all the resolutions have called the two parts of the conflict to resume the negotiations and find a peaceful solution, but no more. It means that if the islanders want to remain under british government, nobody change that , but it doesn't mean that we can't find a fair solution for both people, respecting the sovereignty issue, which is the main conflict. However, your problem, is that you dont want any fair solution, so, if you insist with your intransigence, dont complain if we have more serious problems in the furture, because accept it or not, your side is not acting correctly either.

    “I am pleased to greet the Special Committee as it begins its work for 2012. The creation of new sovereign nations was once described as one of the great liberating movements of history. Yet the process of decolonization is not complete. Sixteen Non-Self-Governing Territories across the globe — home to nearly 2 million people — remain to be decolonized.

    In keeping with the principles of the Charter and subsequent mandating resolutions, the international community continues it efforts to make tangible progress in assisting those territories to achieve SELF-DETERMINATION. To do so, we will need the constructive involvement of all concerned — notably this Committee, the administering Powers and the Non-Self-Governing Territories themselves.”

    Please note the participants:“notably this Committee, the administering Powers and the Non-Self-Governing Territories themselves.”

    Sir, you did complaint a few days ago that your retirement amount is not suficient for you to eat well.
    Let face the facts. I am from Patagonia and I am a very healthy person thanks to the good food my parents provided me with their low pay checks.
    If I have to reside in Comodoro again I will follow the same economic plan that my parents had for all the years they lived. My parents house had a smal garden to cultivate radish, carrots, lettuce, perejil, etc. , eggs from a 12 hens that permitted my parents to make home made mayonesa and flan. My parents baked daily breads. We had chickens and the best pollo asado con garlic. I believe the fish is still the best protein at an affordable price. We bought dried fruit like raisins, prunes, apricots and peanuts for desert. My mother made my clothes and sweaters. She wash the bed sheets, towels, clothes by hand.
    Why you can follow the same economical plans from your parents?
    Please, don't use degrading words against the argentine leader. You know very well that Carlos Menen borrow too much foreign monies.

    Sussie @ 195 - My education is none of your business. I am on this forum because I believe in freedom for the Falklands and I'm worried about Argentina's foreign policy, and the only personal information I'm willing to give is that I'm a Uruguayan living in Uruguay. Unlike Guzz, who cannot say anything about Uruguay that can't be googled and whose obsequiousness to Argentina is such that he's most probably an Argentine himself. What I said to you was that UBA is in 37th or 38th (Ican't remember now) place in the ranking of South American universities. You can check this on the internet. The university at Comodoro is well below UBA, I presume. Is this not true?
    I do have a question for you: You say you live in the States, yet your English is peppered with mistakes. Can't you get private lessons, or perhaps have someone correct your posts? Don't you have opportunities to practise? Perhaps you don't live in the States at all. Why is it that so many of the pro-Argentine bloggers here are either half crazy or pretending to be someone else? Clearly some, at least, are getting paid. Nobody pays me (unfortunately) and I very much doubt whether such is the case of any of the pro-Falklands contingent.
    I'd love to be paid by the Falklanders, and I'd have no qualms about it. In their land no children are going hungry, and their currency is not losing value by the day. I hope you're able to spend your Argentine Pesos before they lose their value even further.

    When you have to resort to insults, everyone knows you have already lost the argument.

    You and all your Argtard friends keep putting a price on the Falklands. 'it's too expensive, why bother it's only 3,000 people, why waste the money.'

    We've all seen these sentiments from people such as yourself over the last few months.

    But you CAN'T put a price on liberty and freedom from oppression. Currently the defence of the islands costs less than 0.5% of the entire UK defence budget. But even if it cost most of the defence budget, it would be worth it to defend the people of the Falklands from the tyrannical Argentine government who would deny them basic human and civil rights.

    Remember that. We will defend the Falklands from any Argentine aggression, regardless of the cost or how long it takes, for as long as the islanders wish us too.

    Just remember how impotent your government really is, hence all the crying and embarrassing you on the world stage.

    LEIARD: Your answer was obvious, this is evident that you understand just what you want, like some others forists who are pro self determination for the population from the islands. I was perfectly clear when i said that if the islanders want to remain under british government, nobody can change that, but id doesn't mean that we can't find a fair solution for both people respecting the sovereignty which is the main problem.
    Beside, neather you nor many others forists realise about the doble standart that you use when you criticise the posture of our country. According to your view, the only one outcome for arg., is that the sovereignty is transfered totally to our country, which is very arguable, because beyond what our constitution says about our claim, the u. n has never asked the u. k to return the islands to arg., so, although the negotiations are resumed between both countries, in order to find a peaceful solution for this conflict, the islands won't never be only under argentine sovereignty, because thats' not what the u. n signalize. However, your side has always said that you are dispossed to discuss about different issues with arg., but not the sovereignty, and claim for the application of the right to self determination for the islanders, so, it means that for you, the only one outcome, is that the self determination is applied for the population from the islands, and reject any kind of discussion with arg., regarding the sovereignty, which is the main problem, so, you are doing exactly the same than what you criticise from the argentine posture.
    SIMON: If you like being the lawyer of the islanders, i respect it, but unless be ample when you analyse such a complicated cause like this one. I dont deny that maybe self determination is applicable for the islanders too, but like us or not, the u.n has always considered this case like a particular colonial situation, beside, read what i typed for leiard.

    I do not detest Argentina. I have spent a lot of time in Argentina and know it is a beautiful (if violent) country with very many decent people. I detest that majority of Argentinians who are fascists (and they really are the worst kind of Peronista fascists who take nationalism to a nauseating extreme) and who delude themselves that they have some sort of bizarre claim to the Falklands that trumps self-determination .... a claim which is based on myths and demonstrable untruths and is blatantly only given an airing when the government of Argentina is up to its neck in shit and looking for someone to blame and distract attention for the hole they have dug for themselves.

    To be honest, I don't agree with 75% the anti-Argentina stuff that is posted in this forum - nor much of what I post - but quite honestly it is the only way to counter the demented racist drivel posted here by CFK's rabid agent provocateur.

    Truth be told, everyone arguing the Argentinian case in these forums is thirteen buns short of a baker's dozen and clearly aren't interested in serious debate. I tried arguing the serious middle ground, but that just encourages the Argie racists to get even more extreme, so as far as I am concerned I now just come here to give them their own medicine and to show Max's many personalities up for the schizophrenic filth they are.

    There you are .. 101% honesty. Happy?

    Indeed, fact is, I don't totally agree with all the Argentines writing here either. The reason I defend them though is to counterweight the amount of arrogant brits there are here spitting venom and generalising about our neighbours and continent... Quite ironic, don't you think? :)

Max is funny though because he thinks he is being so subtle and clever in his attempts to prove that I am not a Norwegian (he seems more obsessed with that than about the Falklands .. but, given that I am Norwegian, that is a lost cause) but the traps he tries to lay are so hammy and glaringly obvious that you can just run rings around him all day (until people like you ruin it with a serious answer).

    Probably because neither side believes that anyone other than an extreme nationalist could possibly believe in the other side's case - so anyone who isn't British or Argentinian must be an imposter .. or something like that I guess.

    For me it is just a simple matter of the whole thing being clearly fabricated (which even Peron admitted, because he was flabbergasted when the UK actually offered him joint sovereignty of the Falklands just before he died) .

    Today though, if anyone in Argentina was honest and sincere in their desire for sovereignty and a friendly outcome where the islanders decide to become Argentinians, then they would play a long game and foster friendship and cultural bonds.

    But Argentina doesn't do that. It deliberately takes the one route that is guaranteed to ensure that they will never gain sovereignty of the Falklands, so that the sovereignty issue is a bogeyman that can be blamed for all of Argentina's ills. The whole Argentine way of going about it is so unstable and basically revolves around constantly throwing their toys out of the pram because the islanders, after years of intimidation, take more than a few disingenuous assurances to become flag-waving Peronistas.

    Argentina just engages in a really quite repellent game of intimidation and using the islanders as pawns in their wholly amoral and racist game of politics that heaps shame on an otherwise reasonably decent country that has had more than its fair share of troubles, but which now deserves everything that befalls it if the people don't rise up and make a stand for honesty and decency.

    I do kind of feel that anyone who isn't Argentinian and can't see that glaring truth has their own reasons for taking the Argentinian side .. a reason which actually has nothing at all to do with a sincere belief in the rights of the bizarre Argentine claim.

    For me, as a spectator, I think both claims are born out of colonialism. But there is a truth that annoys me; the brits are invasive by nature, a fact that the Iraq invasion prooved. As Uruguayan, I don't like having their army, or even fractions of it, that near my home. They say they have no nuclear weapons in the islands, but they also said Saddam Hussein had a few.
    They say the islanders are self-determinating, but every visitor passes through Mount Pleasant and the brittish military, plus the brits decides how the islanders deals with the outside world.
    Should the islanders get independency, nobody would continue backing Argentina in this matter.
    My issue is not with the islanders, but with the colonialist brits.

    The Iraq invasion proved no such thing and it was a widespread international effort. In fact, Argentina itself was part of one of the Iraq invasions.

    Some countries are constantly expected to take on the role of leading international action - and then get constantly attacked by those who refuse to see the truth of the fact that the country isn't doing it for selfish motives. Sorry, but that claim of yours is just bullshit.

    The first Iraqi war was an international matter, for Iraq invading Kuwait. The 2nd war was not approved by the international community. Furthermore, Bush and Blair lied to the whole world in their justification to invade and sack a sovereign nation. I don't agree with Hussein, and am indeed glad he is gone, but I will never buy the lie that it was an unselfish act. It was for the profit. Look, the weapon producers sell their arms, the construction companies get their contracts (to build up what the bombs destroyed) and the government gets the cheap resources. War makes profit, and the poor people pays the bill.
    Not an unselfish act whatsoever, on the contrary, a very much selfish act. And illegal.

    LEIARD: I respect your opinion, in fact, if your side decided to cotinue rejecting the negotiations regarding the sovereignty, then, dont complain if we have more problems in the future. Beside, this is evident that you still dont understand do you?, if the islanders want to remain under british government, we can't change that, in fact the u. n doesn't say a word about any transference of sovereignty to arg., but it doesn't mean that we can't find a fair solution that respects the wishes of the islanders, and our wishes too. However, your problem, is that you dont want any fair solution.
    ISOLDE: What kind of concern and assistance are you talking about?, i didn't say absolutly anything about them. I only argued about the doble standart that your people uses all the time, when they tak about the posture of my country. On the other hand, i won't discuss with you again about the sovereignty, because it's just a waste of time, if you decided to be intransigence, i respect it, but dont complain if we have more problems in the future, maybe some day you'll be able to understand that you are not acting correctly either, and will stop victimizing your side only.

    Your capacity for revisionism really is quite staggering.

    The second invasion was an international matter and was supported by massively more countries than took part. Even those who opposed it (France, Germany and Russia etc) agreed that Iraq needed to be disarmed and the only disagreement was abo0ut timescale how it should be done. That isn't colonialism on the part of the UK, USA or anywhere else.

    Your attempt to portray Britain today as colonialist is cheap and incredibly lame, since Argentina's own actions against the Falklands are far more colonialist in nature than anything undertaken by the UK in almost a century.

    The Falklands choose to be represented abroad by the UK, just as Iceland for many years made the choice to be represented by Denmark .. and indeed just as Greenland today continues to be represented by Denmark. The fact of the matter is that very many small territories around the world make the choice to allow others to represent them abroad and that in no way makes them shackled against their will .. and in fact it would be illegal under international law for the UK not to offer the Falklands that umbilical cord for as long as they are perceived as being under threat from Argentina (and only a cretin could argue that they don't have good cause to feel threatened by the Argentinian colonialist fil).

    As for the rest, you are just proving my point that you are just dragging up all sorts of other wholly irrelevant objections in order to justify your own wholly irrational racism against all things British .. and the fact that you use that against the Islanders shows just how much disdain you have for them (and that makes you as bad as any of the Argie scumbags frequenting this forum). Doubly so since you are quite hypocritically willing to hold the possibility of British nuclear weapons against the UK, when you whine that it wasn't fair in Iraq.

    Sorry, but you are the worst kind of hypocrite and racist .. probably worse than most Argentinians.

    The 2nd Iraqi war was indeed backed by many nations, all of them took part in the same crimes. It doesn't matter what you think you know, no one has any right to invade a country based on what they believe. It would be like the Argentinians justifying a bombing of the islands stating they believe UK has nuclear weapons there. And you would defend it, because SA backs them...

    Yada, yada, yada. So now even the Swedo-Uruguayan Nazi has to resort questioning nationality (and I have openly admitted that I am not all Norwegian .. I am half Danish but only have Norwegian nationality).

    My support for the UK - which has done untold selfless things for the world community - is no different to your support for Argentina .. except that I can rationalise mine, whilst you just rely on all manner of hackneyed racist myths to justify yours.

    The second war in Iraq was not a crime. That is just a claim you make to justify your prejudices.

    As I said, your arguments are racist and have nothing at all to do with the Falklands. It is just a tragically desperate trawl of anything you can think of to shore up your irrational bigotry.

    Dude, keep telling yourself that this drivel of yours is true ; but when Argentina – or indeed that preposterous little pisspot fascist state you are from – does anything at all for the international community, then (and only then) you will be in a position to judge .. but as it is you just sit there expecting other people to pick up the bill and do the dirty work whilst you sit there and bitch, default on loans entered into of your own free wills and then revel in the fact that ordinary people in other countries are having to pick up the bill for the fact that you are a bunch of idle drug-addled layabouts who are unable to take responsibility for anything. You have the nerve to speak of selfishness when in fact there is nothing more selfish than the actions of the holes you excuse.

    There are few countries less qualified to judge than Argentina and Uruguay are .. in fact, right now, I can only think of North Korea that is less qualified. Even countries like Iran and Venezuela make efforts for the wider world community, whilst your countries do nothing that isn't in your own astonishingly selfish interests.

    Now, since none of your banal arguments relate to the Falklands, you are clearly just trolling.

    The information I have gleaned from reading here and other from news services is that the majority of Argentines back gaining soverignty over the islands.

    It may be that at the moment you have other concerns on your mind (like the economy) that take higher priority.

    We have the right to defend our citizens from armed aggression from your country. We regard your president as unstable, over emotive, and a potentially capable of ordering an attack on us that would kill many of our servicemen and place the islands under occupation. if it was successful. The last time you did that the islanders were to be deported. We can't take your personal word for it.

    About the RN - I would say in return that we are blowing a rasberry at your country by (possibly) sending an SSN in to the area.

    Obama may hold us by the balls as you say - a lot of people over here would agree with that, but on this issue we have in a similar grip. If that man wants any help for US policy in Iran, Afghanistan etc, he needs to remember that betraying us (as he has done on several occasions) will lead to reciprocal damage to US interests.
