Full article 72 comments

Argentine ruling coalition lawmakers rejected point blank the referendum on the Falkland Islands’ political status announced for 2013 by the Falklands elected government, and claimed it was a media stunt to distract attention from Argentine president Cristina Fernandez presentation before the UN Decolonization committee.

    Argentina knows it cannot get islanders on its side and so it declares all people on the island as persona-non-grata. It denies the islanders any rights and would do the same should Argentina acquire them. It has poorly fought itself into a corner and cannot home to launch a campaign based on the agenda it currently pursues.. 'Vote for us... we'll take away your self determination!'
    It is however, time to show the world that the islanders set their own future in what ever way they choose, time to silence the argentine rhetoric because quite frankly, they are embarassing themselves.

    How do we negotiate with Argentina ? They have backed themselves into a corner,firstly with their constitutional claim and secondly “that self determination applies to the rest of the world ,but not the Falklands”.They have shown their true colours yet again.
    They bring nothing to the table, the standard of living in the Falklands is far higher.
    I would remind all Argentinians.that THEY tore up the hydro carbon,fishing ,tourism and transport agreements.Financially it will cost you dearly.

    It's an academic question but what if the result of the referendum was that we wanted Argentine sovereignty....would the result still have no value and be rejected by Argentina?

    How's my memory? The last time there was a “poll” on the Islands regarding the “sovereignty” of argieland, did the Islanders not wholeheartedly reject it? And wasn't it organised by argieland?

    And, yesterday, did I not say that this would be the argie response?

    But if there is one group of “people” the whole scenario puts “on the spot” it is not so much argieland as the United Nations. The fact of the referendum alone, never mind the result, displays the freely-expressed wishes of the Islanders. How is the United Nations to justify ignoring that?

    Trevelin is a town in the Patagonian Argentine province of Chubut. In 1902, following a territorial dispute between Argentina and Chile, the inhabitants of the area voted to remain in Argentina. A precedent perhaps?

    How can the Falkland islanders expressing their feelings to the world be a stunt. And as this muppet is a representative of the Argie government, he should know what a media stunt is, God knows they've been doing enough of those recently.

    This is the honest held belief of a independently governed group of settlers on British territory owned since 1765 (barring two invasions by Argentina). All they are trying to do is speak the truth, backed up with easily referenced facts.

    The Falklands people have acted with great composure and class. They have absorbed all the efforts CFK has employed to blockade them, declassify them as human, starve them and generally try to wipe them out. Now they wish to speak and are inviting independent observers (something a lot of other countries don't like doing) to make sure they are completely beyond reproach in any verdict. Maybe Carmona is confused, he doesn't understand a democratic vote can be conducted without mass bribing.

    To quote Shakespeare, “Truth will out.”

    Anyone can look at the facts and come to the conclusions that people posting on this story have said, that denying the human rights of the Falkland Islander because they are “implanted” is wrong and hypocrisy of the highest order but because the facts of the matter do not help the Argentine government, they will never accept them.

    If the results of the referendum favour independence or staying with the UK, they will never accept it.

    We don't care what they vote because to us they are not exist!!! The illegal colonial population on the Malvinas are an illegal plantation in our islands which are Argentine before even our nation exist by Grace of God and Papal Bull 1496!

    There descendants 189 years ago were coming from England and they do not belong to Latin American continent. Latin America is called Latin for reason which is it was gift of God to the people who lived here. My own grandparents come from Italy after the war to escape from anti-fascist persecution!

    The people of the malvinas have no rights because they are an illegal population on Argentine soil.

    The world is on our side, C24 committee is in hands of Syria and our Latin American cousins, they all despise English pirates! They hate you for what you Empire done to Latin America! While the English fight with the Scotch who want their independence, all of Latin America untie to kick England out of our Malvinas. It is funny to watch that C24 will deliver UN resolution against England on day you celebrate you victory, we will celebrate your defeet!

    The presence of UK Defense Minister in Malvinas is military escalation his attendance at liberation ceremony is a militarization of crisis that make war more likely! We also know about nuclear missiles submarine patrolling in Argentine waters off Malvinas a clear breach of nuclear treaty, bringing British ICBM missiles within range of Argentina for the first time!!!

    All this will be outline by President Fernadez at C24 where she ensure they deliver UN resolution on day of victory for Argentina. We are smarter than you, which is why we use irrefutable arguments to achieve our goals!

    @35 Funny little boy.

    Let's look at this dumb little clown everybody.
    He starts of with the Grace of God and the papal bull of 1496.
    Doesn't God tell you to “love thy neighbour as thyself”, Filippo? You must hate yourself. And the papal bull issued by one of the most corrupt popes ever to sit on the Throne of St Peter. A papal bull that wasn't recognised by anyone except Portugal and Spain even at the time. And a bull that has been dismissed as misguided and irrelevant by 20th and 21st century popes.

    Just as a guide, only people like Flippo refer to it as “latin” america. Most people call it South America. But look at the next bit. His grandparents fled anti-fascist persecution. “Poor” people involved and responsible for the most destructive war in known history fled to join their nazi pals and evade justice. More war criminals.

    But perhaps he's right. Perhaps we should refer to the place as Latin America. Just to remind ourselves that it was Latins that murdered their genocidal way through an entire continent. So the Falkland Islanders are sitting on the very edge of a continent of genocides. Just as a start point in redressing the balance, perhaps we should indict every argie over the age of 30 with war crimes. Complicit and supportive of an invasion declared illegal by the UN. And we have the video evidence.

    But you're right about our submarines, Flippo. All four of our ballistic missile submarines are within range of argieland. And guess where their missiles are pointed? You too could be a shadow on a wall! And our other subs are closer in. There are seven of them. They all carry around 25 cruise missiles. Do the math!

    Now let's see how the Black Botox Widow gets on, eh? Will she run home in a paddy again? You do remember that all UNGA resolutions are NON-BINDING, don't you? Britain even ignores the C24 as irrelevant. And again, on your ancestry, we all know about Italian tanks. One forward gear and five reverse, wasn't it?

    Though many people agree that we must work together against obscurantism, incendiarism, propagandism, etc., I myself recommend paying close attention to the praxeological method developed by the economist Ludwig von Mises and using it as a technique to place a high value on honor and self-respect.

    The praxeological method is useful in this context because it employs praxeology, the general science of human action, to explain why the only visible result of Flippo's ploys has been a series of tactical and strategic policy blunders.

    Need I say more? I don't think so, but this I will say: Flippo believes that he is perched atop the moral high ground. If so, then maybe he should climb down to scavenge for some facts before claiming that some people deserve to feel safe while others do not.

    If that's the limit of Flippo's perception, acumen, and intelligence, then God help him. I hope I have made my views crystal-clear: If Flippo opened up his shrewish mind just a teeny-weeny little bit, maybe he could understand that.

    You would think that this chap would see what is blatantly obvious to anyone. The inhabitants of the Falkland Islands do not give a fig (no pun intended) what reaction this has in Argentina. This is intended to show the rest of the International Community where they, the inhabitants, stand on the issue of sovereignty.
    It is also a chance for the Falkland Islanders to see where the International Community stand on the Right to Self Determination, which is enshrined in the UN Charter. This should sort out the wheat from the chaff.

    @60 Might like to help, but I am reluctant to go on facebook. Too much identity theft.

    @Sen Filmus
    It's my hunch that it is easy to see faults in others. But it takes perseverance to expose all of Sen. Filmus's filthy, subversive, and destructive activities. A recent series of hearings, lawsuits, and media reports demonstrates that it takes more than a mass of surly hell-raisers to give peace a chance.

    It takes a great many thoughtful and semi-thoughtful people who are willing to lend support to the thesis that Sen. Filmus uses Jacobinism as a hammer to forge the damnable widdifuls who will agitate for indoctrination programs in local schools.

    He needs to stop living in denial. He needs to wake up and realize that I want to induce him to perceive his errors of perception and judgment and make him realize that his vaporings are way off base.

    “Latin America is called Latin for reason”

    That is correct. But it is another reason than you obviously think.

    “Latin America” was coined by the French government in the 1860's; the expression had never been used before.

    Maybe it's called Latin America because they go through despotic rulers in a similar way to the Romans.

    The bottom line is that if the people of the Falklands will get the opportunity to choose which is their ruling nation. If Argentina cannot respect the wishes of the people, then it proves how undemocratic they are, and frankly don't deserve to be in the G20.
