Defence minister Puricelli: Argentina’s Malvinas sovereignty claim is a regional commitment

Tuesday, July 10th 2012 - 05:27 UTC
Full article 417 comments

Argentine Defence minister Arturo Puricelli said that in the same way “the independence of the Argentines is the independence of the region”, the defence of Argentina is also the defence of the region and in this framework of integration Argentina’s sovereignty claim over the Malvinas Islands is a regional commitment.

    More empty words from Mr emptyhead!

    Argentina is bankrupt and can't afford to get within a 10th of British military power, in fact it can't even afford to re-arm its entirely obsolete military.

    As for measuring British forces strength on the islands, its pure fantasy to think that SA countries can measure the forces of the UK in the area given the UK's ability to move personnel and equipment in secret whenever it wishes too, not that the rest of SA cares one bit. Argentina is kidding itself if it thinks other SA countries care past a few token words that come to exactly zero.

    When are the Argies going to get real about the Falklands. They say they want want to replace their British and other western naval equipment with Chinese equipment.They have moved on from their links with Britain yet they cannot move on from their mid 20th century nazi fascist Peronism and they will not recognise that the Falklands,Britain and the world has moved on from the 20th century.
    The Falklands does not want anything to do with Argentina and Britain has woken up to Argentina's weird nutty obsessions ;especially under this 'birdbrain' president (to quote Michael Buerk).

    In other words, we can't take the Falklands by force, so if we play nice to our neighbours and suck up to China, maybe they'll invade them for us.

    Pathetic really.

    Next year tha Falkland Islanders will hold a UN observed referendum, which will show the world what the islanders want. Therefore any invasion attempt by Argentina's 'allies' would be completely illegal and could see the UK invoke article 5 of the NATO charter. This means that Argentina's allies would be facing all NATO countries, not just Britain.

    But back to actual reality. Why would any country fight Argentina's wars for them, especially when they would gain nothing from it? With what is Argentina going to buy all this new 'military' hardware, as the country is all but broke, and the Chinese only accept Gold or Dollars?

    Once again Argentina is showing the world that it lives in a little fantasy world of its own far away from actual reality.

    I bet his statement came as a shock to his neighbours. As post number 3 has quite rightly indicated it's quite clear Argentina want other countries to fight their battles. I give it six months before British Naval ships are docking in South America again.

    The above article is clear, Argentina knows that it cannot get the Falklands by any other means apart from military action, it has finally dawned on them. I do not think any other country in the world will assist them in attacking the Falklands/UK Forces. As pointed out in above comments, what have any other countries to gain ?, do they want destroyed over an issue that really is of no importance to them ?. However I am of the opinion that Argentina is going to attack the Falklands before the Fernandez Presidency ends (2015), well she has stood up and said this and that, and she is in a corner, it is her only card left to play concerning getting the Falklands. I have no doubt UK forces will be ready, they will beat any attempt to invade the Islands, and if necessary destroy Argentinian military/support installations on the Argentine mainland.
    If I am correct (I hope I am wrong, do not want to see a war) Argentina will be absolutely humiliated again. A very stupid Woman.

    ”If I am correct (I hope I am wrong, do not want to see a war) Argentina will be absolutely humiliated again. A very stupid Woman.” You are correct Mr mclayoscar, despite all the talk of defence cuts in the UK, the forces have simply become even better trained and equipped, while Argentine has staid in the same position. A war is unlikely though.

    No one can be sure really, the Falklands are so well protected that there is nothing Argentine can do about it, and this is the dilemma, all other political, social and economic measures have failed to “get the falklands for Argentine”, so the only real option to get them-the military option has also been ruled out, so who knows were the debate will go, as the status quo will probably go on forever.

    Im not so sure about there not being a war, their window of oppurtunity is before the new UK carriers are ready. They wouldnt attempt it alone, i'm not convinced China would get overtly involved, maybe supply arms, but they may pursuade the likes of Venezuela and some other tin pot SA countries to take part. Not sure about Brazil either, I think they are the big unknown in this, but I can't see them sending their brand new and expensive navy into a war that has no benefit to them, just to keep a mad woman happy. I think when the Islanders carry out a free and democratic vote next year the momentum will begin drop away.

    I think the idea China would assist in anything other than offering military sales (cash up front of course) is preposterous. China is more concerned about selling widgets. I think their business with Europe would be considerably strained if they decided to dip their toe into the South Atlantic on behalf of a president who'd be overthrown the week after defeat

    If the UK was to bring its full military capability to bare on Latin America, it can destroy all of its navies and all of its airforces single handedly. Latin America would need around 3 to 4 times as many troops (and determined, willing to fight ones at that) to beat any British Force. I think I am about right concerning what I have written. Now any sensible potential Latin American British foe would give up any idea about attacking the British when faced with such a scenario. However all sense goes out of the window when the Falklands comes into the head of Cristina. I know many people are saying no war will happen, I am of the opinion that such a scenario cannot be ruled out. Again a very stupid woman.

    Let me correct you.

    In the event of Argentina and any of its “Allies” decided to attack the Falklands/UK Forces it would be a straight forward convential land sea and
    air war and as stated in comment 16, that would be the case. The scenario in Iraq is different to that of the Falklands were British Forces can count on 100% support from the people there , also there would be no land invasion of Argentina or any of its “Allies”, it would be a simple case of the UK destroying Argentina/Argentinas Allies military and their military capacity to wage war against UK/Falklands, this believe or not can all be done from a military base in Scotland.

    No need to set foot in Latin America whatsoever.

You are deluded if you think we wouldn't be able to strategically strike any country participating in any such attack from the Falklands or from sea and it wouldn't involve one British soldier setting foot in South America.

    Again no need to set foot in the Countries of Argentina or its Allies in the event of a War, why because no soldiers of the Countries of Argentina or its Allies are ever going to set foot in the Falklands again, if they attack again it will be a simple case of superior technology beating them, no troops geeting ashore, no jets over Falklands Airspace, no Navy ships reaching the Falklands. Now the only thing that can get the UK out of the Falklands is US Military Technology (their very best) and nothing else. For your information Argentina and its Allies are not going to be able to do anything with some cheap crap produced by the Chinese or Russians, should they buy it, better keeping the many your country is going to the dollars.

    Again no need to set foot anywhere in Latin America.

    But they have nothing to lose, its the only way they will get the FI. Once the fighting starts they will have most of South America on their side, as they have promised to share the oil revenues. Also from a military persective it would make sence to take Ascension island first.

    Well they can only attempt to do it with other nations armed forces, with all the infighting in SA, I just can't see them feeling that invested in the cause, it will come down to what they feel is in it for them, balanced with the risk of defeat. I just don't see it myself. Most latin american goverments are never far from collapse or coup, they are just not orchestrated enough to wage a war on a scale they have never done before against an advanced nuclear power.

I dont think so because Argentina is broke, China knows it and so does the rest of us. The first shot fired in anger by Argentina or any of their misguided freinds would cause NATO tosit up and bash the shit out of them, for what, not for the Falkland Islands. If they want to share in any oil wealth, the best way is to shut up all about taking the Falklands and try and do business like most of the world does.

    If Argentina was a peaceful nation who did not invade countries (i.e Falklands), or threaten and place economic sanctions on a very vulnerable people (Falklands again) then there would be no need for Britain to have a Military Garrison in the Falklands or Nuclear Subs/war ships etc in the South Atlantic. All this has been brought about by Argentina and their attempt to be a colonial power, Argentina (from it own lips) were going to invade Chile (its own Hispanic brothers) if they had had a successful conclusion to the Falklands War, which they did not. Now its no good saying that this Argentinian Government is different to the Junta, it is vindictive and nasty, (economic blockade on the Falklands for example) if it did have the military capacity to invade the Falklands it would and it would also ethnically cleanse the Islands of all the Falklanders if it could get away with it.

    Not your people but your Governments are nasty and vindictive to anyone including its own people who do not sing from the same hymn sheet.

    The most precious thing for both a country and a person is integrity. Without that both are lost. The fascination of following these posts even though they go round and round in circles, is really in the disbelief at the compulsive lies and lack of integrity that comes from SA governments and if these posts are representative, from their people as well. I wouldn't trust any of em to give me the correct time. Argentina must be the only country in the world to welcome everyone at its borders with an enormous printed lie ' 'Las Malvinas Son Argentinas'. This an intentional false statement, something that deceives. = A LIE. They just cant help themselves and want to tell the world 'we are the worlds greatest Liars, look at this sign. All that see it know it is not and never will be true.

    Calm down !! You are safe in your bed. The big , bad British are not coming to get you. If, God forbid, a shooting war starts, it will be Argentina who starts it. The UK will reply with proportional minimum force to fend of any attempted invasion. There is no need to put any troops on Argentinian soil. If it got really serious, then your airfields and naval bases may be put out of action by long range missile strikes.
    Maybe Argentina would like this as they could claim that the “sacred soil of S.A is being desecrated by these aggressive Gringos - rally to keep these colonialists from your territory” - or some like bullshit.
    I agree with you, if we sent 1 “military” into Argentina, he would get his arse kicked. With odds of 40,000,000 to one, even our military could not win that one.
    Using a rat as an analogy is not accurate, actually they are intelligent courageous animals. The British are cowards? An interesting thought.
    Remind me, whose army surrendered at Goose Green despite having numerical superiority, whose army retreated all the way to Port Stanley and then surrendered, whose navy left the survivors of the Belgrano and fled to port. I will give you a clue, it was not the British.

    Guzz, one of the things I find a little strange about your posts (as there are too many to take the time and list) is that you keep hiding behind the Argentine dictatorship line. The people didn't want that dictatorship and therefore Argentina is not responsible. Also, usually in the same post as you refuse to accept responsibility for Argentina's Government's actions, you condemn Britain for elimating dictators in the Middle East who would kill their own people, and dictators who didnt represent the people.

    So on the one hand you claim dictators are bad and therefore Argentina relinquishes itself of all responsbility of its damage to Britain (1982) and then you condemn Britain for assisting people by removing their dictators.

    It just appears to me that you evaluate any situation in a way that it benefits the actions of Argentina, even though it is on the same subject and by doing so is incredibly hypocritical.

    Other than that, I don't feel the need to comment on your other inane ramblings, you just discredit yourself with your paranoia and far fetched rants.

    Question for you given all of your postings on the motivation of the West and their military.

    Instead of the 70s, Argentina has been from the start of 2010 ruled by a similar dictatorship. Thousands murdered (heard that up to 100K, to 30K and someone wrote a mere (MERE) 9K) and the civil population cannot do anything about.

    Would it be acceptable to you for an outside nation (not the west) to invade the country (Venezuela, Brasil or Uruguay, whoever, collectively or whatever) to bring the slaughter to an end? - The question for any avoidance of doubt.

    Be careful how you answer. If you say YES you will be crucified, if you say NO if will be slaughtered and if you ignore the question you will be hung by the posters on this site.

    Funny, although it inst, that the German people dont ignore what happened in the 40s and blame it all on one person or dictatorship, they take a collective responsibility and teach so in their history.

    SA could learn a lot from that, just as most British people with a wit of intelligence can recognise both the good and the bad in our very long history.

    Of course in Argentina history starts when the British “Invaded” the Falklands... so they are off to a bad start already saying that nothing before that date existed or happened...

    This is all because of some bullsh1t indoctrination that they implant on their youth.  

    I guarantee if their is a war, there will be significant losses either side and I can't see that 1,200 servicemen could easily repel a lot more Argentinian and its allied forces.

    Seems like the last throw of the dice to me

    They've tried the UN, they won't talk to the islanders (and therefore the British refuse to talk to them) and they know they're fecked militarily so the only thing that they can do is pretend that they have support from either the Chinese or other LatAm countries.

    I don't see Britain being too worried. If they did try and do something (I think it would be along the lines of a special forces operation) then its chances of success would be slim as I would be sure that dealing with such possibilities would be rehearsed. A few more planes ( anything coming to the end of its service life) wouldn't go amiss.

    As usual you ate full of sh!t.

    When the Argentine government invaded the Falklands in 1982,!they did it because they knew it was the one thing that would unite the Argentine people. I remember all those people celebrating in the Plaza de Mayo, hundreds of thousands of them, and there were other 'celebrations' throughout Argentina. The Junta had never been more popular.

    On the 14 June 1982, when argentine forces surrendered to the British, the Argentine people rioted, called the Junta cowards and DEMANDED that they continue the fighting.

    So the Argentine people supported the invasion of Tthe Falklands, and are collectively responsible for it. But if course Argentines can't possibly accept the blame for anything, can they?

    This story shows the deluded world that CFK and her government live in. All they can do is beg other countries for help and dream of something that will never happen. Their deluded hope that the Chinese will help them is ridiculous at best, but the Chinese won't do anything for nothing, and the cost to Argentina and by proxy to the rest of South America might be more than you are willing to pay.

    Hey Guzz, if you are Uruguayan, why do you support Argentina without question? Especially as the Argentinans are currently screwing your country over?

    Argentina’s diplomatic circus
    By Jimmy Burns
    For the Herald
    Cristina Fernández Kirchner told her countrymen back in February that they should not feel collectively responsible for the national debacle that surrounded the military invasion of the Malvinas/Falklands in 1982. She blamed the military and the Argentine media.
    Those of us who lived through that war in Argentina — and I was there as I relate in my book The Land that lost its Heroes — know this to be a falsehood. With the exception of the then leader of the Radical party Raúl Alfonsín, some human rights activists, and individual journalists, no public figure in Argentine society —let alone Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and her late husband Néstor — spoke out against the military’s “glorious recovery” of Falklands/Las Malvinas at the time, even when it was clear that it was considered an illegal act by the UN and had the condemnation of the international community-notwithstanding the support offered to the Argentine junta by Cuba, Peru, and Gaddafi’s Libya...

    “Argentina supports Beijing's claims in South China Sea: minister

    The minister said several contracts were signed during his meeting with Guo Boxiong, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission and Liang Guanglie, the Chinese defense minister, on military cooperation. China National Aero-Technology Import & Export Corporation and China North Industries Corp have also agreed to provide technical support for the development of CZ-11 helicopters. Puricelli also said Argentina is interested in purchasing the J-20, China's fifth-generation stealth fighter, which is still in its development phase.

    To face the challenge of Britain's Royal Navy over the Falklands, Puricelli also said Argentina's navy will need to import advanced combat ships as he inspected a flotilla of PLA Navy ships in Shanghai.

    China claims the islands and reefs of the South China Sea as the country's territory, though Beijing faces competing claims from Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei. The maritime region is believed to contain rich resources of oil and gas.”

    It has been estimated that aproximately 30% of the population wholeheartedly supported the 1982 invasion, 23% supported it with reservations, 17% had no opinion on the subject and 22% opposed it. This was published in an article about the invasion in 1984 in the Diario Río Negro.
    The invasion was supported by the great majority of the politicians of the time, including Raúl Alfonsin who became president in 1983.
    I state this to show that not ALL Argentines supported the invasion, but also to admit that a large part of the population DID support it.

    If you do it for the good reasons, for human reasons, it is good and a must.
    You can also do it for your own reasons, to gain control in a region or for economic reasons. This is bad and sickening.
    Most interferences are a combination of both, as you will need a just cause to convince the world today. This doesn't make the other aspect of the interference less sickening though.

    So, yes, one should interfere. But one should do so with the interests of the liberated people first, not your own.

    The Chinese steal from everyone who has a product or idea of value (guess Argentina's safe then), and then they reproduce 'exactly' the product they've stolen (even down to the trade mark), but they use cheap and inferior alloys and plastics, so it is never as good as the original. That's why China's military isn't such a threat despite its size, as it's weapons systems are cheap knockoffs.

    Besides India is keeping a very close eye on China, as China is trying to steal their land. Indian's weapons systems are more than adequate enough to counter China, and China knows it.

    But back to the thread, this is about Argentina's governments latest foray into the world of wishful thinking, but anyone with half a brain knows that no country on earth would be insane enough to fight Argentina's wars for them, unless they got to keep the prize (the Falklands) for themselves. I doubt that would fit into Argentina's little daydream, would it?

    The Falklands are British. It has a nice big Union flag flying over it. The UN recognises that the islands are a British Overseas Territory, and next year the Islanders (whose families have lived on the islands longer than Argentina has existed as an independent nation) will vote in a referendum under the auspices of the UN. Once that result is in, the world will be in no doubt as to who the Falkland Islands belong to: the people of the Falklands themselves, not to Argentina and not to Britain.

    Those people will then choose their own future, whether to remain a BOT, join Argentina or whether to become an independent nation in their own right. I'll tell you now that Argentina won't get a look in, especially considering the behaviour of Argentina since 1982, belligerent and overtly aggressive.

    Why is it that you are in favour of Argentine colonialism? A larger nation oppressing a smaller peaceful people? Is it because those people happen to prefer speaking the colonial language of English instead of the colonial language of Spanish?

    By the way Guzz, you didn't answer my question, why do YOU hate the British so much? Just what have the British done to you, because Britain and Uruguay have historically always had good relations?

    102 Guzz The bullshitting Fcuking HYPOCRITE

    So you are all for the invasion of a sovereign nation if YOU (YOU) or SOMEONE ELSE (who agrees with YOU) takes the view that it is for 'good reasons' or for 'human reasons?'

    You have to be prepared to KILL. I suspect that the defenders of the country are not going to be too happy. How many are YOU prepared to KILL? 1K, 10K, 100K or 1M? Too many die then you are the aggressor. What about your own soldiers?

    'Should approach with care'. FCUKING HELL. You have been watching Doctor Strangelove too many times. The Sane world or the West are sending their citizens to die for 'CAVALIER' reasons and on a whim?

    So the HUNDREDS of postings you have made about how bad the Sane world is for the military and other actions it has taken because you, arbitrarily, deem them not for 'human reasons' or 'good reasons' ?

    You are not against invasions then as you have made out?

    Your last paragraph,

    So, yes, one should interfere. But one should do so with the interests of the liberated people first, not your own.

    defines you as a NUMPTY rather than a SOLOMON.

    Have you never heard the saying that 'One man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist'?

    The question is never BLACK or WHITE and never will be. It is a case of where you are sat and the general consensus. You talk shit and your posting are meant to be antagonistic and to avoid the issues.

    Answer my question! Or are you afraid to?

    @107 - Tobias

    Britain has NEVER had huge numbers of fighting forces, so in answer:

    France - Army bigger than the British Army (we beat them in the Penninsula war and at Waterloo)
    Germany - Army bigger than the British Army (beat them in WW1 & 2)
    Russia - Army bigger than the British Army (beat them in the Crimea)
    China - Army bigger than the British Army (beat them in the Opium Wars, and in Korea)
    Spain - Army and Navy bigger than the British Army (beat them during the attempted Spanish invasion of England, and in many skirmishes since then).
    USA - Army bigger than ours (beat them when they tried to invade Canada).

    Quite often the British fought against larger armies and navies, and were sometimes victorious, sometimes not, and sometimes it was a sort of draw. Sometimes we fought along side allies, and sometimes we didn't.

    However, because we are used to fighting against forces with larger numbers than we have, we have become very good at it.

    Why in 1982 we fought against the Argentine army which had more men, better equipment and shorter supply lines than the British. Guess what Tobias, the British won.

    So maybe it's not what you have, it what you do with it that's important. The British aren't afraid of China, as we've fought and defeated them in battle before. The Chinese will remember this very well, and unlike Argentina, the Chinese don't try to rewrite history to suit them, they just try to learn from it. And what did the Chinese learn from fighting the British? They learnt not to underestimate the determination of the enemy.

    @Guzz - and all Malvinistas in general.

    The pathetic line “we did not support the Junta in 1982” is merely a sop to your consciences. You started a war of aggression that cost over a thousand lives. You lost that war.

    The war had overwhelming public support in Argentina, it was only when the truth got out that the war was lost that support collapsed and the Junta lost authority.

    If you had won, Glatieri would have been hailed as a hero to match with Pancho Villa or Che Guevra. You would have ethnically cleansed the islands and doubtlessly huge baying mobs would have gathered every year in BA to celebrate this fact at the anniversary of your triumph.

    Galtieri's crimes may even have been swept under the carpet or ignored, like Stalins.

    Blaming the Junta merely shows that you are ashamed of them leading you to defeat and nothing more.

    It just proves the old saying “victory has many fathers, defeat is an orphan”,

    You just don't want to be associated with failure.

    Get used to that feeling.

    You still believe Argentina is not to blame for that invasion? You ARE deluded!

    I am happy that Islanders wants to do a referendum. What the islanders should know, is that they can not be at the same time “judge and judged”.
    Why is this too diicult to understand? Remember the British Nationality Act 1983, islanders are full british citizens. The referendum has unfortunately no value.
    Islandes always talk about “self determination”, But it does not apply for them.
    Also History is not on the islander´s side. British forces invaded the islands in 1833. It was not “res nullius” at all. They had to take out Arg. flag. It is important to say that France was the first owner of these islands, and then France recognized spanish souvereignity.
    So I would say, it does not make sense to lie about history and the facts.

    Firstly the post makes us bored as we have all been over this ground a million times, and it shows that Argentina hasn't got a leg to send on regarding sovereignty.

    Secondly, the UN is overseeing the Falklands referendum, thus making the result legal in international law. International law is that thing that Argentina tries to pretend doesn't exist. Once that occurs, the Falklands will petition the UN to remove them from the decolonisation list, and Argentina will be told to STFU, by the rest of the world, who are also getting bored of your constant crying and begging.

    Thirdly, the Falkland Islanders have lived on the islands longer than Argentina has existed, so if they don't have the right to self-determination, neither does any Argentinian.

    Fourthly. Just what South Amerindian tribal language is deutscher? Oh that right, you're a colonising imperialist from Europe, aren't you?

Now my intelligence service has assured me that Argentina does not have the capability's to invade anyone at the moment although through a slip of the tongue last week while I was speaking to the Mrs Ambassador Castro she did let slip that Argentina is thinking of annexing Uruguay, she seemed a little embarrassed about the slip of the tongue an pleaded with me not to say anything to the Argentina President or to Uruguay's President José Mujica. I of course could not stand by and let a Country like Argentina sneakily invade in the middle of the night its next door friends so I got right on the phone and told your country’s President what was going on.

    He was incandescent with rage and when he put out his spliff that he was smoking, he thanked me and put your small military on full alert.

    Now Guzz there is no need to thank me for making sure that Argentina did not colonize your motherland, to me it’s all in a day’s work. I hope this puts your mind at rest as to our good intentions in that part of the world. As I said to your President we little country's must stick together an he assured me that if Argentina did in fact try to invade the Falkland's then your country would once more be on our side.

    The British - or to dispense with the euphemisms, the English - are, above all else, a nation of highly practised thieves. The British Empire was the most spectacular exercise in armed robbery the world has ever seen, and it's still in action in a few shameful corners of the planet, most noteably in the Argentine Malvinas islands, where the English are busy raping the oil resources of coastal South America, one of the poorest regions of the world.

    These people - the English - are not very nice, to put it mildly. They are exactly as you'd expect them to be, from reading the Daily Mail: a nation of thieving shopkeepers and thieving shoplifters. A nation of sad little thieves.

    The simplest solution would be for a principled British government to pay them a handsome sum to return to Blighty, and then to hand the islands back to their popst-colonial owner, i.e, Argentina. But a principled British government has probably always been a contradiction in terms.

    164 - redpoll cryptically remarks: “You are of course just an island off the Australian continetal shelf and therefore have no right to determine your own future.”

    Huh? We here in Tasmania are Australian citizens. We have no problem with that at all.

    If the Malvinas were returned to Argentina, the inhabitants would be, as one would expect, Argentinian citizens. But you British like to pretend that your colonists are somehow “not British citizens”, but a seperate, special “people”, and therefore require a vote of “self determination”. So when they decide - ooh, surprise! - that they are actually British after all, you can say: “Hey look everyone, these Falkland people have decided they're British!”

    But we already know they're British. They're an artificially maintained British colony many thousands of kms away from home. But the more important question is: Is there really any rational justification for an artificially-maintained British colony in the South Atlantic, off the coast of Argentina, on islands and waters understandably claimed by that country? Or is is just a matter of traditional British imperial greed?

    Lie # 2 @ 174. The islands were habitated when british forces took the islands by force in 1833. Also when Macbride went for the first time in 1766, the islands were been habitated by french fishers in port Louis.

    I ask all fanatic islanders not to tell lies and confusing people from other parts of the world (for ex. Tasmanian), who are interested in this story.

    Legalism is neither here nor there, I prefer to talk ethics.

    Genetic descendance is ethically meaningless in this context (and I wasn't actually born in Australia - I'm a migrant).

    As for the present situation in the South Atlantic, the Argentinians are actually a very large, self-supporting population constituted as a nation, and have been for a long time. You, however, are a British colony occupying important coastal resources in this Southern hemisphere region, by force of arms, far from your actual home (which is already a rich, powerful nation), for the purposes of British exploitation of those distant resources, which are very much needed by the impoverished peoples of the South American continent.

    @ 175 Jerry(ersatz Argy)
    In 1833 the British recovered the Island after the Argentine military invaded in 1832.

    The “Argentine Administration” was in fact an illegal occupation.

    The settlement established in 1828 was with the permission of the British. Hence the Settlers were encouraged to stay in 1833 (which 29 out of 32 did) when the illegal Argentine military occupation was removed by the returning British.

    The Spanish did not buy their claim to the islands from the French until 1766, before that they didn’t even know where they were, the French had to tell them.
    You don’t have to believe us about this, it is well documented in French history.

    When the British discovered the Islands in 1592, and then landed on them in 1690, the Islands were definitely uninhabited.

    The truth is Argentina has been no more successful in taking that British territory than the Spanish, Dutch or French were before them.

    You seem to forget that it is not just the British version of history that completely contradicts the Argentinian fiction.

    The resources of the Falklands area belong to the Falklands not to the UK. And Falkland Islanders can and do dispose of their resources for the benefit of their country.

    In the case of fisheries, fishing fleets pay the Falklands Government for licenses to operate in the area, plus relevant taxes, all money going to the Falklands Government, not the UK government. And the fishing fleets operating in the area are mostly Spanish and Asian, not British.

    In the case of oil and gas, nobody is exploiting anything as the industry is still at the exploration and discovery stage. Oil companies pay the Falklands Government, not the UK government, for licenses to find and extract the oil, plus taxes and royalties.

    If South American countries in the region want to benefit from Falklands' resources they can do what everyone already operating in the Falklands' area does. They can pay the Falklands for licenses to operate in the area. Or buy the extracted resources from the companies that put them on the market. Which is no different from what happens between one South American country and another. They don't give each other their resources for free.

    The Falkland Islanders have lived on the Falklands longer than Argentina has existed as an independent country.

    Remember the Spanish wiped out entire cultures and civilisations in South America, and after gaining their independence the Argentinians continued to eradicate the native South Americans, and the black African slaves, rather than freeing them.

    In comparison the settlers on the Falklands (only a few were actually British) didn't kill anyone. The British didn't expel anyone except an illegal and failed military penal colony belonging to the United Provinces of the River Plate, who had already mutinied, murdered their commanding officer, raped his wife in front of their children and were running amok threatening the actual colonists.

    So in your opinion why is Spanish colonialism okay, but British colonialism isn't?

    Typical, blame everything bad that happened in the world on the British (not English, British, as in British Empire). Don't accept any responibility for the actions of your own ancestors, Mr (my mother is English so I am an independent observer) Car. Pathetic, really pathetic. Well I'm English, and I'm not to blame for what people who are long dead did to other people who are also long dead. I accept it happened but neither I or any other living English person is responsible, no more than the Italians are responsible for the massacres the Romans did, or the Swedish, Norwegians and Danish are responsible for what the Vikings did, or Argentinians are responsible for the genocide committed during the Conquest of the Desert.

    If you feel so badly about colonialism then leave Tasmania to the natives and return to your country of origin. HIPOCRITE.

    Fine, but unlike you, I'm not talking about what people who are long dead did or didn't do. I'm talking about what a handful of British colonists (supported by the might of the Empire and its profiteers) occupying a couple of South American islands, are doing RIGHT NOW. Which is stealing the resources of a region populated by vast numbers of impoverished people.

    You don't think those occupying the Malvinas are “British colonists”? Well they certainly do. “We are British and are determined to remain British!” is their mantra. They'll be holding a referundum soon, to make that crystal clear.

    @209

    What you ar forgetting is that some of the people in the islands can trace their families back 7 or 8 generations to the 1833 settlers. Therefore, how is it fair that those people be removed from the only home they have ever known and be forcefully return to alien nation because of what some dead people in 1833 did (or did not do- based on what hisotrical opinion, you take).

    Remember there was no native population of the Falklands and in 1833 the islands were over 1,000 miles from the nearest land owned by the Province of the Rio de la Plata (Patagonia was not part of Argentina untill the 1870s).

    I agree with you that British imperialism has been responsible for a lot of pain but so has the French empire, the Roman empire, the Spainish empire and countless other countries. but, all these empires have also brought much to the world (infrastructure, law, democracy and government, althougth I agree this may not of been enjoyed by those living directly under Imperiasm but by their descendents).

    The question is: Where do we go from here? Surely the answer is that all people of the world have a right to decide their own futures in what ever way they wish (providing it lies within international law). In fact 1945 when the UN was established the land borders were set to establish a bench mark in history with regard to ownership. After all if we want to decide that the bench mark should be further back in time then how do we decide when? 1833- Provinces de la Rio Plata Occupies FI/IM, Britiain occupies Canada, Australia etc etc? 1700 -Spain still occupies most of South America, France occupies most of Carribian, UK occupies Eastern coast of US? 1066? Britain occupies North of France, Moors occupy most of Southern Spain? Germany is not united and should be returned to individual tribes? 0 bc? No one owns or accupies anything? Im sure you get the point. The point is no living person should suffer what their ancestors did and as such are afforded all human rights.

    If on the other hand, they want to remain down the bottom of the southern hemisphere, off the coast of South America, and exploit very bountiful South American oil resources without sharing them with the impoverished inhabitants of South America, that's a no-no, because it's very obviously a matter of imperialist theft.

    We've had centuries of rich, powerful Northern hemisphere nations plundering the resources of poor, less developed Southern hemisphere nations. The irony here is that even the government of the UK officially agrees that this has got to stop, that the wealthy nations need to foster development in the underprivileged nations with a view to a more equitable sharing of resources. This is especially true when we're talking resources that are actually located in the regions of those developing nations.

    But in Britain's policy in the Malvinas, we are seeing the most blatant rejection of this more enlightened attitude. We are seeing the old imperialist exploitation at its most classic worst. Much-needed South American resources are earmarked for British coffers with the ”tax” going to a tiny handful of British occupiers of the local islands. This is surely unethical enough to be regarded as a crime against humanity.

    Argentina did not attack militarily back to the Falklands, that does not happen again. No need to do the action to be taken is simple and in that way we going. Total blockade of the islands, while you make your silly referendum from here will be prevented from flying to LAN. Then any cruise ship, boat, or whatever that addresses these islands can sail our waters. This is simple not need weapons to force a negotiation. Because like it or not, we will always change here in UK do not know if that in some years the country continues to exist, LIVE FREE SCOTLAND ..

    “without sharing them with the impoverished inhabitants of South America”

    You realise south america isn't poor due to lack of resources, right? Argentina has MASSIVE oilfields and the whole continent is basically swimming in mineral wealth. SA's poverty is due to chronic mismanagement of industry and constant flirtation with dictatorships who nick all that wealth for themselves giving their own people the shaft.

    Your “it's a crime against humanity that we haven't forcibly evicted the falkland islanders from their home” schtick is so far into bizarro world that it's almost funny.

    @214 I'd love to ask why you are one of only a handful of Aussies that hate British people. Australia and UK have some of the best relations out of any other countries, and I for one am proud of being linked with Australia as the people are nice, and you are just like us with a slightly different accent, and living style. I am also proud of our history, even if we did kill a few dozen million people, sadly. Oh well stuff like that happened then, it's not really important. What is important is that our country has brought more positives than negatives to the world. We managed to educate hundreds of millions of people, teach them how to read and continue the idea that the Romans showed us, which was to take over, find new resources, teach them in exchange for it, which we did, and then granted them independence for their efforts in WW2, and the fact that we were friendly with them. So Car, I really think you should reconsider your opinion of Britain, because remember, you have our flag and colours on your flag, like a good few other countries. Also you really need to look at a history book, and figure out that Argentinians never even knew it existed before the 1800s, until the British got it. So we know we are correct, but continue to get harrased by a bunch of dumbass retards that Argentina calls a government, who clearly have no knowledge on how to run their own country. End my point.

    And @215 Guzz you never replied to my comment on the other article about the countries, so it'd be cool if you looked at that. Also didn't you say before that you had no problems with the British people??? Weird how you change your mind after a few days.

    @216 XAVIERV you seem to know that Scotland is holding a referendum. But... the UK will most definitely exist since most Scots will vote 'no' to independence. I know this because I'm a Scot.

    @214 Do Aussies like Scots by any chance?

    I don't think Argentina wants to do anything else but talk, but UK refuses.
    I can't speak for Argentina, but I'm quite sure the reason there are no sanctions or blockade, is that all SA countries have suffered them before, in one way or another, and they know they only serve to hurt the population, not the government. Should Argentina choose that path, she would loose a big part of SA's support. A support that really is about the British troops being in our region than about the islands themselves...

    Stop reading the falklands government site!!!

    The islands were discovered just 70 years before Davis. There was a time that the spain and portugal dominated the south atlantic searching for a passage to india. There are a lot of maps that show the islands before 1592. If you like, I can tell you where these maps are.

    Fiction is to say that Davis discovered the islands, when in fact nobody knows who did. But for sure, they were discovered before, by portuguese or spanish.

    After all, brazilin and Chilean troops are in your region, and so are a few other countries, should they be removed,

    And –if a royal navy ship coming into the Atlantic, is militarising the south Atlantic, [CFK says so]

    Then is it not equally true, that a royal navy ship leaving the south Atlantic, is de-militarising the area

    If you tally up what argentina has in the region it's orders of magnitude larger. It's fair to say that all the militarisation is coming from the mainland, really.

    And then remember this article is about Argentina's future military procurement with a strategic view to the Falkland islands, it's pretty hypocritical to whine about Britain maintaining a defensive garrison when Argentina's defence minister is making barely veiled threats of invasion.

    May be the original discovery is lost in time but that is not the way to claim lands. The only way to claim it is to set foot on it first and that is just watch britain did. It landed, named and later mapped the place. As was the international law of the time, britain duly claimed it, just like all the advanced european nations of the time. Spain, Portugal in South America, britain in australia, britain in New Zealand etc.

    Britain dominated the seas, primarily for trading and supplies to remote colonies, building an empire requires more than a few canoes. Still other countries were at sea too however there were many wars fought at sea and that takes a sizeable navy which britain had and needed to fight those pesky spaniads and the french. British ships were to be found in all seas everywhere, still are today.

    British history can be found online or in our librarians whereas Argentine history can only be found in the dreams of brainwashed citizens.

    1st. The Falklands are not and never have been Argentine territory.

    2nd. Argentina gave up its claim to them in 1850.

    3rd. Argentina lost any rights whatsoever to moan about lost territory when after independence it invaded, conquered, and annexed vast amounts of land.

    You did know that didn't you? That Argentina at independence was half the size it is today. That Argentina after independence annexed most of what is now the Province of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Argentine Patagonia, and Argentine Tierra del Fuego. These territories were never Spanish.

    3rd. Falkland Islanders have as much right to their country as Argentines have to theirs. More so, as they didn't steal it from any indigenous peoples.

    4th. None of the resources are earmarked for British coffers. See my comment above re fishing fleets being mostly Spanish and Asian. There is no impediment by the UK or the Falklands for SA fishing fleets to become involved in Falklands fisheries, both the Chilean and Uruguayan fleets have been involved. Nor is there any impediment by the UK or the Falklands for SA to become involved in oil and gas exploration and extraction.

    The country placing obstacles for SA to become involved in the exploitation of resources in the Falklands area is Argentina itself, not the UK, nor the Falklands.

    The Antarctic Treaty say no country can annex territory in Antarctica. If the treaty comes to an end and is not renewed, there is the matter of the UK having made a formal claim before Argentina did. But there is also a large area of Antartica that has not been claimed by any country. If the treaty comes to an end, Argentina can try to stake its claim to that part before any other country does.

    XAVIERV makes an interesting point @ 219 (Not the one about us being a cologne mind). If this referendum is supposed to show the world us exercising our right to self determination then to choose between British or Argentine Sovereignty is a nonsense, one is a choice to be a colony of Argentina, the other is to remain a British Overseas Territory (which many parties incorrectly argue is the same thing as a colony anyway), it certainly does not show the world an exercise in self determination.
    If we're exercising that right in such a simple form as a referendum then the question has to be open, all it can do is be a mechanism to show an option we don't want rather than what we ultimately do want, 'Do you want Argentina to have sovereignty of the Falkland Islands? yes or no' would so the trick, that would put the idea that we might be a pro-Argentine population suffering under the British colonial yoke to bed once and for all.

    Aunque la virgen sea blanca,
    pintame angelitos negros,
    que tambien se van al cielo,
    todos los negritos buenos.

    Pintor si pintas con amor,
    ¿porque desprecias su color,
    si sabes que en el cielo,
    tambien los quiere dios?.

    Pintor de santos de alcoba,
    si tienes alma en el cuerpo,
    ¿porque al pintar en tus cuadros,
    te olvidaste de los negros?.

    Siempre que pintas iglesias,
    pintas angelitos bellos,
    pero nunca te acordaste,
    de pintar un angel negro.

    And I get what you mean about that Guzz, but there are still certain circumstances where you can't use that word, e.g. in an argument with a black guy. 9/10 times he'll think it's racist and hate you for it.

    Although the Virgin is white,
    Paint me black angels,
    they also go to heaven,
    all good darkies.

    Painter if you paint with love,
    Why despise their color,
    if you know that in heaven,
    God also wants them?.

    Painter of saints bedroom
    if you have a soul in the body,
    Why the paint on your pictures,
    you forgot the black?.

    Whenever you paint churches,
    paint beautiful little angels,
    but never remembered,
    to paint an angel black.

    This is highly improbable. Argentina is militarily toothless, and nobody will invade the Falkland Islands just to hand them over to it. (Don't count on us Brazilians to do so, as most of us endorse the right to self-determination.) Besides, the crucial question is not whether or not Argentina will get them but whether or not Argentina deserves to get them. Every lover of freedom who is acquainted with the relevant historical facts knows that the answer is in the negative. Even more glaring than Argentina's military inferiority is Argentina's moral inferiority.

    There are only 2 scenarios regarding the sovereignty of the Falklands.

    1. They will remain a British Overseas Territory
    2. They will become an independent nation in their own right.

    After the UN observed referendum next year, the Falkland Islands Government will petition the UN to remove them fom the decolonisation list, as they will have achieved one of the possible scenarions the UN has mandated.

    Argentina won't get a look in, as you burnt all your bridges in 1982 and have done little to rebuild them since. Since the referendum will be overseen by the UN, that makes it internationally recognised, and therefore the Falklanders will have international backing.

    So after this there is nothing that Argentina will be able to do but cry, beg and whinge (which you are already doing with no success), and military action will be out of the question as Britain will stop you, or could invoke article 5 of the NATO charter.

    Of course all this is Argentinas fault. You've had 30 years to woo the Islanders, to try and show them that the real Argentina wasn't like the Junta and would respect their rights as people. You've had 30 years to show the Islanders that being linked to Argentina would be beneficial to them in terms of economy, trade, culture etc... But all you have done in the last 30 years is alienate them, spit on the hands of friendship and cooperation they have extended to you, and threaten them with economic sanctions, invasion and ethnic cleansing.

    This is the real reason why no sane country in the world would allow Argentina sovereignty of the islands, because you are a vindictive people who can't be trusted.

    Well said, could not agree more. More so, comments that China has joined in the tussle with Argentina are way off mark, China will only look at selling their exports to Argentina with their recent trade agreement as long as the gold and $'s keep coming. If Argentina becomes more aggresive over the Falklands, China will not put their trade with the UK and their friends in Western Europe at risk and rip up anything with Argentina in the UK's favour as they know where their bread is buttered. So any modernisation of Argentina's navy, airforce & army will be done with low budget poorly compared technology, that is why Agentina is begging for allies, but, they will only make the right noises as they too know where their bread is buttered. Too late, forget the Falklands, you will never ever own them in your lifetime CFK or in the future when you are long dead and gone and forgot about.

    Argentina is deluding itself if it believes that China cares about anything other than China. They would, of course, love to have a few military bases in South America so they can project their 'influence' further.

    But if you though having the USA in your backyard would be troublesome, just wait until you have a communist regime dictating what your country should think and do, and once they're in your country it'll be nigh on impossible to get rid of them.

    The People's Republic of China has been a Communist country since 1949. It is still a communist country today, right now this very minute. It has a one party system - the communist party.

    The People's Army of China swear allegiance to the Communist State. Speak out against the Communist government and find yourself arrested, put on trial and either sent to a hard labour camp or executed. The Chinese execute around 5,000 people a year, the precise figure is considered a state secret in China. That's actually more than all the other countries who have the death penalty put together.

    There's no doubt that the Malvinas will revert to Argentina eventually, but the timetable will be determined by two main factors: British public opinion, and US government instructions. As long as the USA doesn't care much, British public opinion (which is no more informed than average Third World public opinion, and is very easily swayed by tabloid propaganda) will ensure that no British government can make much progress on the issue until the Falklands War recedes well into the background.

    But if the USA decides it's time for the Malvinas issue to be resolved, they'll have a brief word in the ear of the Brit PM and that'll be the end of the matter. Whether that will happen within 25 years is anyone's guess.

    Since you say you are an Australian, why don't you do some research before making such ridiculous claims?

    Argentina has never owned the Falklands. The People who reside on the islands can trace their ancestors living there to before the country of Argentina existed. They have been there for more than 180 years, so what right does Argentina have to tell them how to live?

    The Argentinians illegally invaded the Falklands in 1982 (by the way Car Australia back the UK in that war, and even offered military assistance should it have become necessary), threatened the people living there, tried to destroy their culture, held guns to their heads and pulled the trigger (fortunately on empty chambers), scattered landlines around without marking their positions (which is against international law), and when they realised they were losing booby-trapped the desks in the school with explosives.

    So Car, why on earth would anyone ever want to be a part of a country that did that? Would you Car? What about the rights of the Falkland Islanders? They've lived there for more than 180 years, built their own culture, have their own economy and government, and as the islands were uninhabited, they didn't ethnically cleanse anyone to get the land.

    By the way, the Argentines planned on ethnically cleansing the islands. Do you think that's right? Or legal? Or acceptable in this modern age?

    Why do you support Argentina whose ancestors were Spanish colonists, who did ethnically cleanse the lands of natives and steal it? You are a hypocrite Car.

    The Argentinian administration in 1832 was illegal because the British took possession of the territory in 1765 claimed in 1741, on the basis of previous discovery, long before Argentina ever existed. This is the simple fact that destroys Argentina’s historical argument.

    The British discovered the Islands in 1592 correct, this does not mean they were the first to discover them.

    The British claim the first confirmed discovery of the Islands, because they went back a year later and began mapping them.

    Prior to this S American Indians certainly visited the Islands, no evidence of settlement.

    The Portuguese reported sighting Islands in that vicinity which may or may not have been the Falklands, as the sightings were never confirmed we don’t know for sure.

    There is no mention in any Spanish document of the time about the Islands, like I said, the Spanish did not buy their claim to the islands from the French until 1766, before that they didn’t even know where they were, the French had to tell them. You don’t have to believe us about this, it is well documented in French history.

    All this long before Argentina ever existed, the fiction here is the Argentinian version of history.

    Communism is basically a model where humanity rules itself with the law of morals, where everybody produces what they can and consume what they need.
    In that sentence, everybody is equal, yes.

    I'm not a communist though, so don't expect me to defend its ideology...

    I know what communism is in theory, which is obviously your blinkered view of it, equality for all, all shall have the same as their neighbour which will eliminate greed, want, crime etc...

    The problem is that when you put the theory into practice. In reality, communism doesn't work as you can't subdue human nature. There will always be those who want more than other people. There will always be people who are more ruthless and ambitious than other people. There will always be leaders and followers. People can't ever be truly equal as someone always has to make the hard choices, the decisions.

    Democracy is the only true way to ensure equality. One citizen, one vote. Democracies also don't promise that everyone will be equal, they only give people the chance to improve their lives.

    Guzz, communism is not a good thing as it tends to oppress small things like freedom of expression, freedom of travel, freedom to think for yourself, freedom of the individual. Basically communism is the antithesis of freedom, because everyone has to be the same, act the same, want the same things, think the same things, and in order to do this individualism and creativity is crushed underfoot.

    However, it doesn't really matter, as the subject of this story is Argentinas self deluded belief that the whole of South America will fight for Argentina for no gain. It will never happen. Also the Chinese would never attack the British in such a dishonourable way.

    This is a case of wishful thinking by the Argentine government, a fantasy were they actually think they've got influence in South America, when in fact they are Venezulas and soon to be China's lap dogs.

    After living for some time in Buenos Aires and elsewhere in Argentina and being fully immersed in the language, culture and family, I have puzzled for years over the question “What's Wrong with Argentina?” I was really curious to understand what could explain the many odd, disrespectful, selfish, reckless, aggressive, and counter-productive or irrational behaviors I noticed on a daily basis in both private and public Argentine life.
    Among the behaviors I have in mind are Argentine drivers recklessly endangering each other daily; pedestrians refusing to yield to each other; clerks annoyed to service their customers; paralyzed, inefficient and rude government bureaucracy and bureaucrats; people in close proximity speaking in a loud, agressive and hostile way; individuals not keeping personal or professional commitments and appointments and then fabricating excuses; thousands of soccer fans shouting violent obscenities in unison and organizing as violent mafias; groups of disgruntled citizens routinely stopping traffic at will on the principal roadways of the capital causing losses to thousands of fellow citizens and doing so with impunity; levels of street crime so high that nearly every acquaintance has been victimized at least once; government officials lying, punishing honesty, stealing public funds and private property and opposing a free press; the torture and murder of dissident citizens (past), and the making of agressive war (past). And it appears many Argentines have a constitutional inability to accept personal or national responsibility for inappropriate behavior and make amends. Instead there seems to be a society-wide compulsion to make excuses, blame others and complain of victimization.
    And the most recent examples are the Argentine government's statements and actions regarding the Falkland Islands, oil company expropriation, and Olympic improprieties. TBC.....

    SouthAmericaObserver 05/07/12 14:35 (part 2)
    The notion that seems to me best able to explain this pattern of selfish/agressive behavior is that the Argentine culture is permeated by this simple belief; “I” (or my group) am more important/valuable than “You” (or yours).
    And since what “I” want is more important (correct, just, necessary) than what “You” want “I” must have the right to have it regardless of the effect my getting it may have on “You.”
    This is the same attitude found in 2 year olds, dictators and other sociopathic folks (often living in prisons) which inclines them to behave in those annoyingly self-absorbed and destructive ways we are all too familiar with.
    My prescription for Argentina? Get some therapy. Grow up. You'll get the respect an adult deserves when you act like one.
    Thanks Jayne....you said what I left out. And it's not just the trash they don't clean up, it's the dog feces you are sure to eventually step in on every city sidewalk. All BsAs seems to own a dog but hardly anyone takes responsibility for their own messes....of any kind. And I can add one more unsavory detail....Argentina smells bad. Standards of cleanliness are low and the high level of meat consumption produces pungent nitrogen compounds that require more lavatory maintenance not the little they actually get. So Buenos Aires has a characteristic decaying flesh odor, at least in it's public lavatories, similar in kind if not flavor and degree to the way southern India smells like curried human feces for lack of toilets. Not very appealing. And because everyone is on guard against street crime people's faces are not open or happy. For me it's an interesting dystopia with some redeeming qualities which make it worth visiting but except for those who resonate with that kind of place it probably would not make a happy home.

    Pathetic attempt to divert the thread with a completely random topic. Tut, tut, even Guzz did better than that with his 'the Chinese aren't communists' crack.

    @320 - Guzz, no the Chinese are just loaning South America vast sums of money which they will expect repaid with interest.

    Since Argentina's economy is in the toilet they won't be able to repay, so these 'friendly' communists will foreclose on them. The price maybe a military base or port in Argentina, and once in you won't be able to get the out.

    I wonder how Chile and Brazil would react to that? Or the USA? Perhaps the Yanks will make a deal with the Falklanders to put a US military base there to counter any Chinese base in Argentina.

    The reason that the US acts in the manner it does with respect to Las Malvinas and Argentina is because of the so called “special relationship” between it and the UK. In the past the US has seen it in its interests to maintain this relationship. But as the US moves its interests to the Pacific it will have a lot less interest in maintaining a client in Europe. Coincident with this the US will increasingly focus its interests in America. So, as you point out the US will seen it as in its interests to get the British out of America.

    But beyond the US there will be at least one other American country which will have the ability to whisper the UK's ear.

    As I see it there are several paths by which Las Malvinas can revert to Argentina. On the other hand I can see no way that it can remain as a European colony.

    Ok now that all this had been revealed there is not reason to keep secret any more.

    Arg secret service had been worry for many years about the interest showed by Aliens over UK.

    On a document made by senior Intelligence Officer named “AUATTTS” (Allien/UK Advanced Technology Transfer Top Secret) shows irrefutable evidence that UK is acquiring Alien Advanced Tech in exchange for UK advanced top secrete tech.

    Seems the Aliens are very interested to acquirer BBPT (British Banknote Printing Technology) and HAHSM (High Advanced Hypnosis for Stupid Masses).

    Aliens for decades have been monitoring that UK govt. can print money faster than anyone in Universe while keeping the Brit. citizens living in a complete state of denial in the process.

    Also the document point out that the UK govt. Hypnosis is so advanced that Brits. citizens can threat other nations with weapons and military capabilities that they don’t have and even though they risk to be vanished from the face of earth by these nations.

    Alien even though having a gap with planet earth of a millennium developing advanced tech they don’t have something so advanced like this.

    In exchange Alien will transfer to British the most advanced SFF (Stealth Flying Fighters) known in the universe and 62m pill of IEGHL (Instant Education and Good Health for Life).

    The SFF is so advanced that any jet fighter pilot in UK in his/her entire life will see any.

    And the pills of IEGHL are so good that UK will not need Health service or Education anymore.

    It isn't a colony.

    Several constitution changes have given the FIG more, not less autonomy from UK rule since 1982.
    Now the islanders govern themselves ,with helpfrom Uk with defence as Argentina is too unreliable a country to trust.

    As Argentina want the Falkland Islands as a colony, they are clearly the would-be colonialist power here.

    You could be right in one aspect. When the Falkland Islanders are no longer threatened by colonialist Argentina, they are likely to seek Independence but the Argetnines have proved themseleves to be no respectors of treaties and alliances so cannot be trusted, which means the Islanders have little choice but to retain strong ties with the UK>

    That situation is caused by Argentina, thereby distancing itself from any hope that it will colonise the Falkland Islands.

    Argentina has caused this=their fault, their loss.

    The Islanders vote next year. They are going to have the choice of 3 options:

    1. Remain a British Overseas Territory
    2. Become part of Argentina.
    3. Become an independent country.

    Now, due to constant Argentine aggression the most probable result will be option 1 (after all they can always claim independence at a later date if they want to), as the British will defend them against Argentine aggression.

    Once this is done they will have achieved what the goal that the decolonisation committee was set up to do. They will have expressed their wishes, and the UN will have no choice but to remove them from the decolonisation list.

    The UN already recognises de facto UK Soveignty of the Falklands, but after the vote the 'de facto' part will be dropped to read, 'the UN recognises UK Sovereignty of the Falkland Islands (the name Malvinas to be removed as it is obsolete), in line with the wishes of people of the Islands.”

    Once this is done, Argentina will have no legal rights to claim sovereignty no matter how much you demean yourselves by crying, begging and lying.

    Argentina has had 30 years to prove that they weren't like the junta, but instead you have proved yourselves every bit as ruthless and untrustworthy as them. You try to starve out the islanders with an economic blockade (which didn't work as your regional friends refused to do it), you have threatened them with ethnic cleansing and murder. Then you wonder why they want nothing to do with you.

    Argentina needs to grow up. I mean 40,000,000 people trying to bully a mere 3,000 people. Cowardice of the worst kind. You are all PATHETIC.

    Just rubbish referendum not change Arg. S rights over the Islands according with International Law.
    Keep trying you do very well.

    Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

    “The author believes that the Argentine claims to the Malvinas are firmly based not only on generally accepted rules of international law governing the acquisition of sovereign rights over territory, but also on
    the fact that the international community at large, acting through successive
    General Assembly Resolutions 1514 of December 14, 1960 which, therefore, must be brought to a speedy and
    unconditional termination and, on the other hand, has identified Argentina, by reason of its territorial dispute over the Islands, as the relevant counterpart with whom Great Britain must negotiate for the purposes of bringing about decolonization. ..and by what some people believe to be the
    “higher” - law of decolonization.”

    “The first discovery of the archipelago of the Malvinas has been attributed to:
    Amerigo Vespucci in 1501”

    “The first colonizer of the Malvinas was Louis Antoine de Bougainville who
    established in early 1764 a settlement of around 29 people, founded Port Louis... until the latter was formally transferred to Spain.”

    “When Bougainville recounted the history of the transaction between Spain
    and France of 1767, he pointed out that France had relinquished the Malouines
    in favor of Spain pursuant to a principle of European public law.”

    “It seems quite clear that the South Atlantic War between Great Britain and
    Argentina has not altered the basic legal status of this ancient, but ever continuing,
    dispute as defined by Resolutions 2065 (XX) of 1965; 3160 (XXVIII) of
    1973; and 31/49 of 1976 of the General Assembly of the United Nations. This
    proposition is confirmed by the recent General Assembly Resolution 37/9 of
    November 9,1982167 which, carrying the favorable vote of the United States”

    If any US president told HMG to give the Falklands to you - he would be told to get lost.

    He/She would then find all US bases in Britain no longer welcome, and there would be ZERO UK support for any action the US takes in the Gulf, etc. It would be political suicide for that POTUS.

    UK opinion consistently backs the Falklanders in remianing British and more importantly backs them in their wish not to be invaded or occupied by Argentina. If they went independent, polls shows that we would support that too.

    Being as I have seen footage of Argentine school children being drilled into chanting Malvinsta slogans and fed a twisted version of what hgappened in1982, with no debate about it, calling us ill - informed is a bit crass (and actually an outright lie).

    First of all your proof of these 'facts' you have brought up? No haven't got any?

    Secondly, none of these people were South American, let alone Argentine so what bearing do they have on sovereignty claims?

    Thirdly, Argentina has no rights to the islands, the islands are no longer a colony, and that will soon be ratified by the UN. Aw Dany, gonna cry and stamp your feet?

    Forthly, all those UN resolutions were based upon Argentine LIES, and we're all INVALIDATED by the illegal Agentine invasion of the Islands in 1982. They're dead just like Agentina's claims. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Fifth. Spain dropped its sovereignty claim to the islands leaving the British as the only legal claimant left. Gonna cry again, are we Dany?

    As for your claims as to who first discovered the islands WRONG.

    “While Amerindians from Patagonia could have visited the Falklands, the islands were uninhabited when discovered by Europeans. The first reliable sighting is usually attributed to the Dutch explorer Sebald de Weert in 1600, who named the archipelago the Sebald Islands, a name they bore on Dutch maps into the 19th century.

    In 1690, Captain John Strong of the Welfare en route to Puerto Deseado was driven off course and reached the Falkland Islands instead, landing at Bold Cove. Sailing between the two principal islands, he called the passage ”Falkland Channel” (now Falkland Sound), after Anthony Cary, 5th Viscount of Falkland, who as Commissioner of the Admiralty had financed the expedition. The island group takes its English name from this body of water.”

    Whatever do they teach you in school Dany? Oh that's right, they teach you lies.

    But Argentina will NEVER gain sovereignty of the Falklands unless the inhabitants wish it. So never gonna happen, is it?

    Oh dear Mr Car, “post-colonial” thats nonsense. Australia was created by British colonialism as were the Falklands, the only difference being was that Australia had aboriginals when we British arrived and the Falklands didn't, you sir can only call yourself Australian because Australia had the right of self determination to leave the empire and become independent, the Falklands however don't get this choice in your eyes. Despite being a people who will be as close to an original population as you can get. oH and by the way they are not a colony, they are entirely self governing were as a colony is not.

    “Well that's certainly not true in my case. I live in Tasmania but I'm a very strong supporter of aboriginal rights and land claims etc” Really, are you sure? A true supporter would see how “unfair” it is for you as someone of European decent to live on lands that don't belong. If we really wanted to be fair about it, all colonially v=created countries would have to be dissolved their inhabitants would have to go back to were they belong, with only the aboriginals staying but thats not going to happen is it? No you have a nice comfortable life don't you on allegedly “stolen lands”?

    “If the “Falklanders” are addicted to their chilly island lifestyle, I'm sure they can easily be rehoused on the Isle of Wight, or Isle of Man etc.” Sp what about the Australians or maybe they cant be removed back to Britain because there isn't much room in Cornwall?

    “condemning the greedy British imperialism that is taking place RIGHT NOW,”
    Independent or not Australia is still an example of imperialism and colonialism taking place RIGHT NOW, the only way to truly end it would be for all of you lot to come home to your countries of origin, but as I said thats not going to happen is it?

    Oh and by the way Argentine is a product of Spanish colonialism so how can they call the Colonialism card while their country is built on stolen lands? And I actually hold no regrets for the empire.

    and leaving the islands and their coastal resources to the people of the region, who very much need them.

    Car,

    Falkland Islanders are people of the region.

    If South American countries want Falklands resources they can pay the Falklands for them. Just as the Spanish and Asian fishing fleets are doing, just as the oil companies are doing. And just as South American countries are doing to each other. There is no “South America” as far as resources is concerned. They all sell their resources to each other. They do not give them to each other for free.

    > you Brits really are prepared to kill and maim and kill and maim again, in order to steal the regional resources of poorer people who badly need them.

    There are only two flaws with this thesis :

    - Argentina is not claiming the Falklands in order to distribute their regional resources among the poor of S. America. Argentina is claiming the Falklands because it has chosen to turn a minor colonial skirmish into a national neurosis which is convenient for politicians and which none can back down on.

    - The UK is not defending the Falklands in order to steal the resources of poorer people. The UK is defending the Falklands because no UK government can give in to the Argentine neurosis.

    If the most likely outcome of this is that a large proportion of the oil wealth is spent on defence, that is deeply sad. But appeasement is not a better outcome, as experience of the last time that got tried would suggest.

    ”in order to steal the regional resources of poorer people who badly need them.”
    ??????????????????
    The oil reserves around the Falklands are minute compared to the resources in Argentina. The reason there are poor in Argentina is that the ruling class makes itself wealthy and cannot control its massive resources properly. As Argentina couldn't run a party in a distillery, if it had the resources of the Falklands they would not benefit the poor, the rulers would get them put into foreign bank accounts like CFK, Timmerman, etc does.

    Argentina can't be 'given back' something you've never had ownership of, and never will. By the way 2 illegal occupations lasting the maximum of 3 months does not a Soveignty claim make. 180 years plus of continuous inhabitation does.

    The cry of Imperialist in the 21st century is amusing, Dany, but since you support dictators with terrible human rights records it's hardly surprising.

    You don't have any arguments, just your hatred for the British, which you seem to share with numerous other Argentine posters.

    The Argentine government is definitely getting worried bout the UN backed Falklands referendum. Once the results are in it will be goodbye to all Argentine sovereignty claims. You can cry and spout as many defunct UN general assembly resolutions as you want, but it won't hold any water against the referendum results. And do you know why the UNGA resolutions are defunct Dany? Because Argentina broke them all in 1982.

    Maybe BK would care to give us some more information about himself
    Where was he born, educated, job/career and the town where he currently lives. I find the anonymity of posters a bit puzzling. Is it that they can hide behind a pseudonym and use language that they would not use if it could be attributed to them. I have no qualms about revealing some details about me.
    Born in Argyllshire, on the banks of the river Clyde. Parents both Scottish and Grandparents back to records began, of Highland stock. Moved to Glasgow at the end of WW2 and lived in Whiteinch within earshot of the Shipyards. Raised in a socialist background to believe in fair treatment for all - this also a part of Scottish education at that time.
    Worked for 40 years as a Officer of Customs and Excise until retirement.
    Enjoyed travelling world-wide and actually contemplated visiting the Argentine until this current trouble brewed up.

    Several Republican candidates strongly criticised Obama over the Falklands issue for, 1. Not supporting his ally and 2. Not recognising the Islanders right to self-determination.

    Fair bet the next Republican Pres will formally recognise the Islanders rights in that respect. The next Democrat pres will at the very least not change the status quo, if not take the same position.

    After all who will it upset! Only Argentina and Venezuela, which makes it a reason FOR them to do it.

    The US is a functioning democracy no president could sanction Argy colonisation against the will of the inhabitants, without strong opposition in the Congress and Senate. Because with a free press it would be well known that was what’s happening.

    Much of the world now knows the Argy version of history is total bollox.

    Whatever their position about “negotiations” far more countries in the world support the Islanders rights to self-determination than Argentina’s claims of sovereignty.

    Which is where you have lost the argument, and why you are bolloxed.

    Yes, right - the world is a very different place to 1956. So is the strategic situation.

    The USA is'nt worried about the Soviets anymore and we are'nt reliant on US financial aid to stop us going under. WW3 is'nt a likely outcome of any armed conflict that your lot start.

    The Falklands is seen as a matter of self defence and commands popular support whereas the Suez operation was a foreign adventure that did not.

    Besides you pretty much reran Suez in 1982, but managing to get the USA to provide weaponry to the other side (us).

    To trash your analogy even further I'd point out that if you're forced to try and get a bigger nation to try to kick us out, you've pretty much admitted that you know you can't.

    As to your boasting about chinese weapons on other threads - go ahead and buy the stuff if you like.

    The Chniese are still having problems integrating all the different foreign combat systems they have purchased on their warships and their fighters are still mostly copies of Russian designs. The more advanced aircraft are nowehere near being in service - and they may have qualms about selling them to an unstable regime that threatens war with a major trading partner in Europe.

    @Car

    So you hate British imperialism but you support Argentine imperialism?

    Have you done a thorough reading of the background or are you just bashing the UK for the sake of it. No matter what else we do (or have done) on the world stage look at the situation based on it's actual background. The Argentines actually can't prove a valid, undisputable claim to the islands, and their plan in 1982 was to ethnically cleanse the place, kicking out all the islanders.

    The paranoia over posters' nationality in this forum is genuinely startling. Do you really live such insular lives that you actually think opposition to Britain's occupation of the Malvinas is a “rare” position for someone to hold, unless they're actually Argentinian? Support for Argentina on this issue is universal amongst the international Left, and outside of Britain you won't find many conservatives who have much sympathy for Britain's position, either.

    As for ChrisR's threats, the fact that Britain is indeed now the stamping ground of violent, BNP-voting chavs like yourself, is definitely contributing to the ever-increasing numbers of Britons deciding to emigrate. And no, they're not wanting to move to the Malvinas.

    They are on a par with people like Kim Philby. People like that are usually alienated “intelectual snobs” who feel superior to the average person and thus know better than they do.

    For Kim Philby - he liked selling us out because he thought that communism was they way forward - Gulags and all. Us proles simply did'nt “get it” that it was better than democracy, so we would have to have it forced upon us.

    They believe that their country is wrong without even looking at the facts. Because your home is a legacy from the days of empire they hate you and your way of life. They hate your patriotism and determination to resist foreign overlordship.

    Because they want to cry about the “bad old days” they will sell you out or even actively support invasion or forced eviction.

    They won't even look at the relative weakness of the Argentine claim. They are stuck in the 1950s - banging on about the “evil British empire”. They will simply gloss over any faults in Argentina's argument because we are going to be automatically wrong on this issue as we would be on ANY global issue from their point of view.

    The Argentines could be shooting the falklanders in batches then dumping them into the sea from helicopters and it would be “your fault”.

    They could blow any major UK city of the map in an unproked attack and it would be “a blow against imperialism, you deserved it”.

    I agree with you that people like that are low life.

    All I can say to car was that I am glad Philby died alone and disapointed in his beloved USSR. I hope you face some closer aggressor ,like China, bearing down on your home - they're left wing socialist brothers too...............

    And you support Argentinian Imperialism so that makes you a hypocrite.

    There is no British Imperialism as since 1982 several constitutional changes in the FI have led to more autonomy from the UK. That is the opposite of Imperialism which is empire/land grabbing.

    If the Falkland Islanders wanted to become Argentine, then the UK would not stand in their way, that has been stated and is the opposite of Imperialism.

    If the Islands were governed entirely from the UK and no notice taken of the inhabitants born on the islands, that would =imperialism.

    Argentina wanting to annex the islands aginst the wishes of the native inhabitants=Imperialism.

    The support Argentina has in the world is dependent on lies it told the UN in the 1960s by fabricating innacurate historical details.

    The Falklanders just “don't get it” either do they Car?

    I never voted BNP, and most people in the UK who supported the Falklanders don't either.

    The falklanders are backed by the vast majority of people in the UK.

    If you are relying on the intellectual might of Sean Penn and co to do your geo-political and moral thinking for you, you must be a fool. Go watch “team america” to see what I think of celebrity diplomacy.

    In addition a facist organisation like the BNP is anathema to myself. My sisters godparents come from Jamiaca - they're a lovely, hard working bunch who earned every penny they ever had. Some of my best mates are Hindu Indians - generous to a fault. Try another squeal Car, the last one does'nt wash.

    I echo Pete Bog - if you want to align yourself with the likes of Syria and Iran - go ahead, they are fine examples of progressive thought are'nt they?

    You live in a wonderland yourself, a far left wonderland where the likes of Argentina can do no wrong.

    @395 - Dany

    Where is your proof that shb lies?

    It is you who doesn't know anything about Britain. The majority of people in Britain support the right to self-determination for the Falklanders.

    Remember when the Welsh told you Argentinians to 'get stuffed' when you tried to get them to support your erroneous claims? I can also guarantee that the Scottish, Irish and English take this view too.

    When you and Car bring up the BNP it shows how little you actually know of Britain (incidentally this is how we KNOW Car is not British as he claims to be).

    In the last general election, the BNP were rejected by the people of Britain, losing the few seats they had in parliament, not gaining anything, and in many cases losing their deposits.

    They are a spent organisation, a dinosaur that has become extinct, because of their racist views.

    But none of this has anything to do with this story.

    This story, like so much that this Argentine government spouts, is a fairy tale meant to believed by people like you Dany, gullible people who don't think for themselves.

    Even with this new military pact with Venezula (another 'nice' friend for Argentina along with China, Iran, Syria and Angola - all with dubious human rights records), you still can't threaten the Falklands.

    The rest of South America don't give a sh!t about Argentina's colonialist agenda, except that while you're whinging on about the Falklands, you are leaving them alone.

    They make a few cooing noises at you, and you all get excited because you think that means they support you, when in fact they laugh at how easily manipulated your government is.

    Even countries outside of South America have cottoned on to this. For instance China says 'we support you over the Falkands', you government gets dewy eyed and then agrees to anything the Chinese want.

    Your government whores your country for a few insincere words from dictators and human rights abusers around the world. How proud you must all be of this fact.

    A British citizen of Ukrainian/English descent, born in Reading, Berkshire and living in Tasmania:........... “Mr. Car”

    He appears at (129) with a quite harsh definition of the British people……
    At his next harsh but fair post (144) he says he lives in Tasmania!
    (I luuuuuv Tasmania and I luuuuv Mary Donaldson :-)

    Nearly instantly the ” British Turnip Team” began to work on him…..
    “You are lying”, they say…

    “You are a Racist”, they say…
    “You are an Argie”, they say…
    “You are a Traitor”, they say….

    “You are not British”, they say….

    Etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc…

    But his posts keep getting better and better...........
    (See: 165, 170, 176, 188, 195, 199, 209, 214(especially good one), 299, 342, 345, 347(another excellent one), 380(says it all, really), 385…….)

    His well formulated, polite and intelligent posts even managed to irritate our Young Resident Papuan/Russian/British Squatter-Kelperette Enchantress; ”Ms Isolde”….

    Needless to say, I like this poster!

    @dannyberger -aka total muppet.

    I am as English as Bombardier bitter. I live in the West Midlands - more specifically the black country near Dudley (DUD - LAY ....yes I know all the other brits are now imagining the accent).

    Most people don't go around constantly banging on about the Falklands, but the vast majority of people I know are worried about the run down of our armed forces at a time when your lot are becoming more aggressive. One of my best mates (who is quite liberal in his views about other countries and even has nothing against Argentina) stated recently that your country was just waiting until we were at our weakest before trying something.

    Just because you listen to the likes of Galloway (a coimplete twat in my opinion) does'nt mean we all like you or support you occupying the Falklands. You underestimate our resolve to resist foreign invaders and aggressors, because thats what you are.

    Foreign adventures like Iraq and Suez lack the same level of support as fighting someone like you wantying to stick the jackboot in against our own people. What a surprise, hey......

    The rest of your post just made me laugh, coming from someone who has a pathological obsession with isalm and kebabs, ha ha ha.

    Where you chewing the carpet at the time?

    My oh my - herr doktor think has risen from the tomb.

    Cross your fingers a long time “think”. F*** all is going to happen.

    His definition of the English is more appropriate to Argentina anyhow.

    These people - the Argentines- are not very nice, to put it mildly. They are exactly as you'd expect them to be, from reading mercopress: a nation of thieving shopkeepers and thieving shoplifters. A nation of sad little thieves.

    lt doesn't matter how crude or unfactual a piece may be, if its singing the malvinista song, Think will describe it as :-
    “well formulated, polite & intelligent” or some other such rot.
    M.Car has not brought even one fact to this forum to prove Argentina's “claims”.
    lts just his biased opinions.
    What was so earth-shattering about his latest effort, Think?
    Just accuse people of being “racist”.
    Where have l said anything racist?
    Then go on to accuse people of voting for the BNP.
    Has the idiot got proof of this?
    Even if any of this is true, whats it got to do with us resisting Argentine colonial aggression?
    Really, Think, you'll have to do better than this.
    lf he is British, then of course we don't like him because of his views & of course he is a traitor.
    l seem to remember you, yourself doubting the credentials of Argentines who didn't support your malvinistic aims.
    Actually his posts don't keep getting any better at all.
    As l said, nothing new.

    @214 You are such an a*se. Presumably through living the greater part of your life under a eucalyptus tree. But then every wannabe aussie I've ever met has had a couple of attributes. They're uneducated and they left their own countries because they couldn't make it there. Always worth remembering that “ex-pat” rhymes with “rat”. Presumably you went to Australia because you thought you'd meet up with the last lot we sent there. The convicts.
    Anyhow, I realise that this will be difficult for you as you live in such a lawless place, perhaps you could discuss the legal rights of Britain and the cesspit (argieland) to the Falkland Islands. Until you can do so, you should keep your opinions to yourself as you just appear to be spouting cesspit propaganda.

    What no comeback?

    No more stupid assertions?

    No more “go eat kebabs” comments?

    Anyway - you know f*** all about my life and friends other than what I have posted here - and why would I make up details like Jamaican friends? If I hated black people as much as you seen to have an obsession with Muslims I could post all the crap I like, with no fear of comeback.

    I really enjoyed their wedding anniversary a few years back, at a hotel over by Runaway bay. Being a brit and therefor a curry officiando I have to say that goat curry is a personal favorite, being introduced to it at a young age, while they lived over here.

    Why don't you now make some further daft comment about bob marley.....

    Has'nt car gone quiet, perhaps he is working himself up to justify the eviction of the falklanders from their homes again. Thats the crux of comment 214.

    No one is stealing anything from Argentina - they could have shared, they chose not to. They want it all, and would crush the islanders to get it.

    If car is a true internationalsit would he be prepared to help out those islanders kicked out of their homes by Argentina if it gained control of the islands? perhaps he has a spare room? Or do they “deserve” to be punished by the Argentinians for the (imagined) sind of their fathers.

    Catchy tune by the Wolftones but a load of ballocks if you think the Irish republic will back Argentina. Let us see, the UK is helping them keep afloat and millions of them or their descendants live or work in the UK
    There is also another part of Ireland called Ulster who are more pro the UK than the people on the mainland.
    Can you explain your comment at Rule 4
    This uses a double negative. Who are the “Imperialist haters”. I would assume that this is anyone who hates the UK i.e. Argies and BK.
    So, as double negatives cancel themselves out this should read
    You can be British if you agree with the “Imperialist Haters”
    Substitute the synonym for imperialists as Britain and you now have
    “you can be British if you agree with the British haters”
    A novel concept. Is that what you meant to say ?

    ANSWER _ more than you do.................being as I actually live here.

    You, of course, can go on believing the CFK and co propaganda about us just rolling over and prepared to give up, it won't make it true.

    Not taking the Falklands over any time soon are you, really. No sign of talks, no sign of surrender, no sign of the islanders buckling, no sign of the garrison withdrawing or even being reinforced. Still enough money to do that, forever at the current rate, ha ha.

    Sort of business as normal - with your lot blowing a lot of hot air and actually being totally impotent to actually do anything to change the stauts quo, ha ha.

    No sign of the threatened court action against companies working the oilfields either, ha ha.

    How does it feel to be on the losing side?

    Correction to 410.

    I was thinking of Jimmy Hendrix instead of Jimmy cliff - so I did'nt look at the song until later.

    danny bergers song applies to Argentina. They are the only ones coming on at us and the harder they come, the harder they indeed fall - lets all spend a minute thinking about Timmerman's moronic car crash in the UN....................

    Have a look at the lyrics:

    The argies are the aggressors here and many of the falklanders have stated they would rather die than be under their boot.

    Oh yeah, but oh yeah, oh yeah, alright

    Well, they tell me of a pie up in the sky Waiting for me when I die
    But between the day you're born and when you die They never seem to hear even your cry
    So as sure as the sun will shineI'm gonna get my share now, what's mineAnd then the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and allOoh, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all
    Well, the oppressors are tryin' to keep me downTryin' to drive me underground
    And they think that they have got the battle wonI say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done
    'Cause as sure as the sun will shineI'm gonna get my share now, what's mine
    And then the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and allOoh, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all
    Oh yeah yeah, well, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
    But I'll keep on fighting for the things I want
    Though I know that when you're dead you can't
    But I'd rather be a free man in my graveThen living as a puppet or a slave
    So as sure as the sun will shineI'm gonna get my share right now, what's mine
    And then the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and allOoh, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all
    Hey, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all Hey, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and allHey, the harder they come, the harder they'll fall, one and all

    Danny I have many Irish friends who equate Argentine threats to the Falkland Islanders and the 82 invasion to when the British occupied Ireland.

    Those in Ireland who disagree with my friends( who think that self-determination is the overriding principle), could always persuade the Irish armed forces to sail to the South Atlantic and help Argentina, to add to Syria, Iran, Venuezuela, Angola etc etc get decimated in a turkey shoot.
