    It won't be long before they announce they'll be suing the world through the Argentine courts.

    @6 Beef
    Genuine court action is something worth seeing. Argentine politicians and Malvinistas would have to claim a case of 'diminished responsibility' to avoid them looking like total dorks.

    Geniune argentine legal action with any merit is an oxymoron.

    This is so funny. Argentina 'warning' the EU and the US.


    Firstly the Falklands are internationally recognised as British territory, so the world knows that Argentina has NO authority, legal or otherwise. Secondly, the only court in the world that would hear this case is an Argentine court, and they don't have jurisdiction.

    Methinks this is more macho posturing for domestic consumption. CFK is saying to the Argentine people “look how powerful I am, I am taking on the EU and US, and they shall fall before me!”

    When in reality the rest of the world are just ignoring her increasingly hysterical and bizarre statements.

    The worst that could happen here is the Argentine court would rule these companies illegally operating in that area. They would issue some lame warrants or fines, which they will be incapable of enforcing, but it would ensure that none of these companies EVER set foot in Argentina. We all know that the Argentine government is particularly vindictive.

    So once again we have a case of Argentina cutting off its nose to spite it's face. Or as someone else said, they think they are winning when the are actually losing.

    And while the Argentines continue to behave in this irrational manner, the oil companies will continue, business as usual, make lots of money for themselves and the Falkland Islands.

    The Argies will still be waiting to start 'it's drilling' in the area with the help of Venezula, but as neither country has the equipment, expertise or money to off shore drill, they will probably be waiting a long time.

    Where would these court actions take place ? In London ? That should be entertaining and bring a few millions in fees to competing barristers.

    If in Argentina, what difference would it make ? I presume it would be a trial “in absentia” so what would the penalties be when they were found guilty. No Argentine court could deliver a verdict otherwise.

    @1 “Argentina doesn't need nukes we got judges”. Thought you were keen on nukes! Have you just figured out that you haven't got them and you can't have them? As for your “judges”, well, the whole world knows that they are as bent as a 46-peso note. Let's see now, when your (argie) anti-corruption office revealed the Kirchner swindlers accounts and the size of their “fortune” AND said that the figures “didn't add up”, one of your “judges” started an “investigation”. But he soon dropped it, didn't he? And now CFK's “assets” have dropped from US$14.5 million to US$6 million. So much more believable...NOT! And what happened to the US$1 billion that went missing from Santa Cruz while Nestor was there? Argie judges aren't good for anything!
    @2 “Talks” about what with whom? Didn't you want to talk about air links? You were directed to the Falkland Islands Government who is responsible. Have you been in touch? Didn't you want to talk about fishing? You were directed to the Falkland Islands Government who is responsible. Have you been in touch? In terms of the way Britain runs things, it would be like contacting the Department of Transport about a road sign in your area. You would be referred to the local council. As for gas and oil exploration? Well, that's also a FIG responsibility. But I doubt they'd want to discuss anything. You tore up the agreement. Remember? Bearing in mind that all those UNGA resolutions are NON-BINDING, when are you planning to take the UK and its Overseas Territory to the ICJ? Not keen on that? Then I suggest a change of diet. Try humble pie!

    As always Argentine rulers are like spoilt Kids. If they can't have it they don,t want others to have it either.
    It is time that Argentina started to realise that The Falklands are here to Stay and we will exploit what we have with or without your threats.

    In todays world Argentine is the most backward Country that refuses to regonise peoples rights and will untill someone can get through the thick skin of the nation will remain in that mode.

    The Falkland islanders on the other hand are becoming the most inteligant Country in th eworld because they refuse to rise to the Argentine propaganda and it clearly shows in worl stance. Argentina opens its mouth and th eworld laughs at them. Falkland islanders open their mouths and the world looks at them as a truly democratic Country beginning to show the world how to move on in the 21st century. So come on Argentina, stop the naughty boy act and join the Islanders in celebrating what is going to be th enew world frontier in a few short years.

    No sure Mr. LepWrong Argentina owns an important portion of the world and to be precise the 8th bigger mass of land in the world. Also is among the 3er bigger food producer in the world and has majors regional powers in SA backing her.

    Also has significant influence in some EU states members to turn the balance of political power to her own.

    Now what TF has little Britain to counter measure Argentina’s power?

    Are you going to say Uncle Sam perhaps that doesn’t even reply Cameron’s emails?

    Think LepWrong what TF a little insignificant nation like Britain can do against Argentina?

    The problems is no matter who Argentina warns the rest of the worlds finacial institutions and investors just dont give a flying S**T im afraid. Something is certinly going wrong when a huge country with proven resources cannot attract foreign investment fom oil and gas compnaies whilst a small set of Islands currently only carrying out exploration for oil and gas resources can attratc some of the biggets names in global energy. If CFK and her government actual looked at it from this point of view they would see the problem lies not with foreign markets (apparently) being unaware of the politcal situation but with her own hyper-populrist policy which have left international investors vary. The results is that foreign investors see the FI as a relatively safe (low risk) place to do buisness whilst they see Argentina as a relativily unsafe (high risk) place to do buisness, meaning they see greater returns from FI investment.

    CFK may not believe in capatilist investment models (as is her right) but the rest of the world (and especially the worlds biggest economies) do. She has isolated her country and is paying the price for it.

    Couple this with the fact that the oil companies have the backing of the much more powerfull political might of the UK and that they A) have no assets in Argentina and B) See no international juristiction or possible risk from international courts. means they see these threats as the toothless barks of a failed government and have chossen to invest anyway.

    Stop moanaing and do what is required to make your own country investable to the outside world. A good start would be paying compensation to Repsol for your theft of their assets.

    Could someone explain how argies think that getting a judgement in their favour in an argie court is to their benefit? The Falkland Islands and the surrounding area may be “disputed” by the argies, but the UK doesn't accept that. When is a dispute not a dispute? Let's try another “player”. The United Nations recognises the UK as the Administering Authority for the Falkland Islands. In order to stop the argies whinging on a daily basis, the UN has passed various NON-BINDING meaningless resolutions. Let's put this into “everyday” speak.
    United Nations: We are so hacked off with argieland constantly whining about this issue and we don't want to waste any time with it. Let's say that we are asking the argies and the UK to negotiate and find a peaceful solution. Let's get the UK to “solve” it.
    UK: We can't be bothered. The argies are sub-human, neanderthal types that don't have the intelligence to comprehend cogent argument. We could prove our sovereignty without a shadow of a doubt to any normal people, but argies listen to everything you say, sometimes, and then make something up. We could actually destroy the place either with conventional or nuclear weapons, but we suppose you wouldn't be too keen on that? So what we're going to do, for the most part, is to ignore the psychotic tossers. If they go too far, we may have to “respond”. A few aircraft, a couple of “warships” (chuckle), but we'll try to keep it to a minimum. Legal actions? Only one possible venue. The ICJ.

    In the meantime, argieland is acting in contravention of the UN Charter and showing themselves to be a rogue, irresponsible, criminal state. Why can argies not understand that they lost years ago? Anybody with any intelligence knows they have no case. They are just hoping to win by nuisance value. And they can't beat Britain, or the Falklands, like that. Argie desperation for domestic consumption!

    “Argentina owns an important portion of the world and to be precise the 8th bigger mass of land in the world. ”

    No as important as you believe it is. While your Dear Leader continues her protectionist measures, and playing buddy, buddy with some of the worlds worst human rights abusers you will, and stealing all of your money, Argentina will never be important.

    You have lots of natural resources that you CAN'T exploit due to corruption, mismanagement and the fact that no one in the world would loan Argentina a thimble never mind any money.

    Your recent deal with Venezula to drill for off-shore oil together is laughable, as neither of these countries have the right equipment, expertise or the funds to explore.

    No oil company in the world would invest in Argentina or Venezula because they have already had their fingers burnt in each country.

    Face it, while people like you continue to support corrupt governments, Argentina will never be important in the world.

    None of the EU members support Argentina (more propaganda from CFK?), and all of them recognise that the Falklands are a British Overseas Territory. Your only friend in the EU was Spain, but CFK managed to p!ss them off too.

    No Argentina's friends can be counted on one hand: Venezula, Iran, Syria and Cuba. What wonderful friends to have, all of them abusers of human rights.

    Tell me Dany, do you think CFK will declare martial law? Do you think she'll return to the bad old days of 'disappearing' her opponents? She's already using government organisations to harrass and bully them.

    Face it Dany, Argentina wouldn't recgonise true democracy if it was dancing naked in front of you waving pom-poms.

    @21 Severly doubt it!
    All of her neigbours. Brazil (The largest economy in LATAM and Argentinas ally), Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay believe in a capatilist economic model. They at least understand that foreign investment and trade exports are critical to the success and their growing GDP. The only countries who try and play major politics and believe in her model are Venezula and Cuba (both considered failed states by the majority of the diplomatic world). She cant even influence her neighbours (after 5 years in power) let alone the rest of the world. In fact many of her neighbours have been very careful to distance themselves from her opions and acts. For example even when Bolivia nationilsed the energy compnay it decelared it would be paying compensation ina cocrdance with international law.

    FFS even China (her new best friend, and formerly the most communist nation on earth) is now using capatalist economic models. I respect her for standiung up for her principles but they will not strengthen the world and cause the rise of global peronism (which is a philisophical idology and not an economic one).

    Her economic model (inherited from her Husband) is a failure and has no provisio for long term stability of the nation.

    Peronism is really an operating system designed to accumulate personal power. It is NOT an ideology or a political party, it has that single objective, the accumulation of power for the head person, in our case CFK.

    No one has said that Britain isn't in recession. But we don't have nearly 40% inflation, and economy that's haemorrhaging money, and a government who thinks it can spend its way out of debt.

    Don't forget Dany, Argentina still has ALL those debts it defaulted on in 2002. That's the debts plus 10 years interest and counting.

    The debt just doesn't go away because you want it to. Argentina will one day have to pay the piper.

    But back to the topic at hand. Argentina has NO legal authority over the Falkland Islands, and the Falkland Islands Government an sell licenses to whomever it likes to explore for oil and gas.

    This smacks of sour grapes coming out of Buenos Aires because you know you haven't got the capital to explore for hydrocarbons yourselves (even with Venezula's help) and no oil company in the world would invest in Argentina as your government has a nasty habit of taking things that don't belong to them.

    Even your newest, bestest friends, the Chinese won't invest in Argentina's oil and gas industry. They know a bad deal and hopeless cause when they see one.

    Who knows, China may be the next to invest in the Falklands. Wouldn't that be a kick in the teeth for CFK? :0)

    Dany you obviosuly are the most inteillgent economist on the planet I mena you can see things that the worlds most respected financial institutions cannot. If we were in danger of economic collpase our credit rating would of been cut (makes sense doesnt it, the higher the risk of loaning the lower the credit rating) and yet the UK still has a tripple A rating, (the highest possible). The issue you are forgetitng is assets. Britain has enougth assets to enable it to borrow money at good intrest rates where as Argentina cannot borrow money on the open market because it has proven in the past it does not pay its debt.

    You also need to stop confusing land size with economic size. Economic size is determined by Gross domestic product. I.e. the value of all the final goods and services produced by a country in a given period. The UK has a GDP of arround $2.4 trillion a year making it the 6th or 7th biggest country economicaly. Argentina on the other hand has a gdp of about $0.4 trillion making it the worlds 27th largest country (econmical). Therefore the UK is actualy 600% larger in terms of economics than Argentina.

    Let us also look at the hisotry of inflation in the UK, the highest ever inflation rate in the UK since 1948 was in 1975 and stood at 26.9. Compared to Argentina whos highest inflation rate was in March 1990 and was over 20,000%.

    The difference is that whilst the UK has a central bank empowered to take the action required to deal with inflation rates, Argentineas central bank is run for the benifiet of the politicians and not the people. UK governments are willing an able to make unpopular decisions for the sake of long term stability.

    In addition the EU and paticuley Spain are some of the largets importers of Argentine good, What do you think will happen to you when they go belly up and stop importing?

    Hsitory and reality suggest a very different outcome to the one you are suggesting, dont they?

    The Falkland History

    John Davis discovered this small group of Islands
    That’s what the history books says.
    He was the first of so many to pass near these shores
    Way back in the sailing ship days.
    He logged in his book,” For Britain I claim
    This unknown land discovered by me”.
    Fifteen ninety two, the year it was written
    Then confirmed in the parliament for all to see.
    For 200 years nobody cared for this land
    Except used for some poachers that called while en-route.
    Then along came the French, who made a bold claim
    The Falkland’s are theirs and kicked the Brits out.
    For several years the French they did rule
    But then sold to the Spanish these Islands they claimed.
    At about the same time the Spanish had taken
    What we now call the Argentine land.
    To make matters worse, Spain gave to this Country
    The Falklands they bought through the French deal.
    Britain was mad at what the Spanish had done
    Their Islands from Great Britain, they were trying to steal.
    For many long years now our sovereignty’s been claimed
    By the various parties involved.
    And to this day the bickering is still going on
    With no sign of ever being resolved.
    The Argentine Junta took Britain to war
    In eighty two when these Islands they invaded.
    For seventy four days this war it was fought
    Eventually the Argentine dictators surrendered.
    But so long as the Argentines lay claim to this land
    There will be sovereign disputes over this place.
    kelpers have lived here nearly two hundred years now
    So they belong to us, so go leave us in peace.

    The Blockade

    Sitting down to breakfast the radio on,
    Listening to the regular world news.
    Amidst all the chatter the newsreader states,
    Shipping and the Falklands is making headline news.
    The chatting soon stops it's all quite at the table,
    We cannot believe just what we are hearing.
    The Argies don't like it we're drilling for oil,
    So their blockading our waters to stop all our shipping.
    We have always been used to the Argentine aggression,
    Because we remain British, democratic and free.
    To stop all our shipping is an all out attack,
    On the international laws of the sea.
    Even putting pressure on Latin American neighbours,
    Not to trade with us or allow entry to our ships.
    They are nothing more than dictators and bullies,
    We can never trust them with their devious tricks.
    We Islanders are peaceful but they wont leave us alone,
    Why does the rest of the world sit by and do nothing.
    Democracy rules or so we are told,
    Go away Argentina this land we're not giving.
    Their actions are childish and so immature.
    A laughing stock to the world of democracy
    They cant even manage their own Countries affairs,
    Killing the indigenous people of their own society.
    One day they'll wake up and will then realise,
    That the world no longer supports them.
    By then it's to late to re-kindle the fire,
    With the Islanders who no longer respect them.

    I have proved you that inflation is a world wide phenomena since the rise of oil and commodities prices.
    In fact if you fallow financial and market shocks in one way or another are linked to the price of oil.

    I don’t know really from where you get your inflation & data about ARG that BTW is increasing every new post from you.
    And in ARG those prices haven’t increased much compared with US or EU.
    So Mr. Economy guru, explain to us how in US and UK having price increase higher over these Items report such low inflation?

    Ah! I see now you get it from Simon68.

    Anyway you didn’t answer me the question about what are you gonna do when Spain collapsed and all banks linked with them go belly up.


    If your source of information is Clarin or La Nacion where is full of the likes as Simon68 I really doubt you have any clue about how is doing the real economy.

    @52 -Dany, I don't see your 'proof' anywhere.

    Regarding the inflation rates of Argentina, these are what 'independent' institutions in Argentina are saying. No one in the world trusts Indec, because it has a very nasty habit of distorting the figures.

    But I digress, just what does any of this have to do with Argentina's 'warning' to the US and EU?

    I mean, what is Argentina going to do? Stamp your foot? Cry? Hold your breath until people start giving you what you want?

    Face it Dany, the US and EU don't take your government seriously. And why should they? Over the past few years your government has told blatant lies on the international stage, made themselves (and by proxy the Argentine people) look like amateurish fools, implemented 'protectionist' measures that hurt Argentina more than they hurt anyone else.

    This 'warning' is like a meerkat warning a rampaging rhinoceros. A little squeeking noise, drowned out by the thunderous approach of something far bigger and more powerful than you.

    Face it, Dany, all this posturing is for the domestic market. People like you Dany, who are so gullible that you'll swallow anything they throw at you. Your government has been blustering since May about how they were going to take legal proceedings against oil companies working with the Falklands. Guess what? They're still waiting, as even your muppet politicians realise that they are impotent over this issue.

    Good post. CFK's government is not just impotent with their threats to take legal action against the oil companies. What about stopping LAN? What about starting an Aerolineos Argentinos service to the islands? What about the joint Chilean / Argentine statement of solidarity? What about blocking shipping access to the Falklands? What about the charter freight flights from Uruguay? What about the Chilean and Uruguayan members of their business communities coming to the Falkland to strengthen business relationships? What about CFK's lame promises to the families of the Argentine war vets that she'd get the islands back for them and then turning the police on them?

    Why doesn't the Argentine government actually do something positive and meaningful to get their hands on the islands?

    Dany - if Spain goes belly up then it is easy to make money. Short sell the arse out of any bank or vulnerable business with a dependence on/in Spain. It is easy to make money if you have balls and a spine. Kind of explains why Argentina is an economic basket case.

Both in the Santa Cruz province where her dead (supposedly, or possibly hiding in Switzerland) husband Nestor comes from. The land that these hotels were built on was bought for literally pennies that (were actually federally owned lands) the Kirchners stole from the people of Argentina and built these million dollar hotels that charge over $1,000 U$ Dollars, YES USA DOLLARS per night. We have to all go to EVERY travel website and trash this criminal rechid Kirchners hotels so that NOBODY stays in them. They are the most corrupt and worst politicians to happen to this country ever!

    I know it's of little consolation to you, but soon the Falkland Islands will be richer than your country. They will have their say on the world stage and have the UN remove the offensive word Malvinas from all international documentation.

    Then all of you Argentinians can continue you way of life secure in the knowledge that the Malvinas do not, and have never, existed. Peron lied to you, and all your successive governments lied nd continue to lie to you.

    What Makes Us Kelpers

    The most friendliest of people that you’ll ever meet
    That’s lived on this land two hundred years or more.
    Kelpers they call them, of British descent
    Are the kind of people that live on this shore.
    The first ones to come here and settle this land
    Came from England Scotland and Wales.
    If you’re lucky to talk to the eldest among them
    You’ll be amazed at their wonderful tales.
    They built their first houses from driftwood and stone
    With limited tools they built them so neat.
    Then a bit later on they discovered black diamonds
    Which they cut from the ground and used it for peat.
    In those pioneering days, these Islands were covered
    With a tall tussac grass that fed the cattle and sheep.
    These animals, along with the pigs, hens and ducks
    Were brought here by settlers as the food they would eat.
    They planted small gardens for vegetable supplies
    And built mile upon mile of six wire stock fences.
    The wool from the sheep was sent back to Great Britain
    Which was sold for hard cash to pay their expenses.
    Kelpers work hard and will seldom complain
    About conditions of work and places they lived in.
    The fresh cooking all baked by the wives on the farms
    Is so masterfully done in an old peat fired oven.
    Modern day tourists now flock to these shores
    In their thousands from far distant places.
    Not just to see the magnificent wild life
    But Kelpers with big smiles on their faces.
    The Kelpers are envied all over the world
    Because they have got what most people dream.
    The lifestyle and the beauty the tranquillity too
    And most importantly they are a close knitted team.
    Most of them now live in the capitol Stanley
    While many small Farm owners live out in the camp.
    But wherever they live the spirits the same
    They will welcome you in when you’re wet cold and damp.
    They’ll show you they’re lifestyle the gift that they have
    How they all make a living from this windswept land.
    There a real friendly people in a quiet remote place
    You know that your welcome as they offer their

    The Falkland Islands police are trying to trace the owner of a bible that was left inside the broken glass next to the statue. A Spanish bible.

    Methinks that some Argentine visitor has done this vandalism, not a Falklanders.

    Perhaps you should wait for the forensic evidence (the Falkland Islanders have asked the UK police for assistance). Perhaps one of your countrymen was unhappy and attacked the glass.

    But the truth is any moral 'high ground' that Argentina could've taken over this matter was spat upon by your own government who tried to score some cheap political points, thus showing they had no respect for the dead. The world saw this and snubbed Argentina's faux outrage.

    But what does your statement have to do with this thread? What does it have to do with the Argentine governments impotent threats?

    Our Sovereign Rights

    The Argentines still play their game of diplomatic pressure.
    Totally ignoring what we want and everything we treasure.
    Since Captain John Davis discovered this land in 1592.
    The Argentines have tried to claim what belongs to me and you.
    Dictators that we know they are, yes they even went to war.
    To take this land away from us, as they’ve tried so hard before.
    But Britain made a pledge, they’d never let us down.
    A task force came to fight for us and the enemy soon was gone.
    But that’s not stopped the evil mind, of the Argentine dictator.
    The pressure’s on they think they’ll win, sooner than later.
    A British garrison's stationed here to keep the aggressors out.
    Now we have all this protection, the Argies whinge and shout.
    Heaven forbid the day may come, British soldiers may go home.
    The Argies may seize their chance, they won’t leave us alone.
    Sometime soon oil wells will grow, around these pristine shores.
    If it does you can rest assured, it will open new political doors.
    The Argentines are very greedy, They want what we have got.
    Though there in the wrong, unless they win they will not stop.
    They’ve tried every trick there is, to win our hearts and mind.
    We’re far to clever for all of that, we’re not the wooing kind.
    We desire the right to remain British, forever and a day.
    That is our right we took a vote, It’s the way we want to stay.
    Argentina wouldn’t like it much, if we tried to claim their land.
    They’d go to the united nations, to get a helping hand.
    If the powers of the world are wise, they’d really understand.
    These Islands belong to no one else, but Kelpers of this land.
    Leave us to live our lives, just the way that you live yours.
    Just recognise our Kelpers rights, and close the political doors.
    So why can’t the Argentines live in peace and total harmony.
    Without the need to threaten us as so often seems to be.
    Why can’t they accept us for who we are instead picking fights.
    Let us live the way we choose and keep our sovereign rights.

    You have a lot to learn about us and our way of life. We are welcome in every part of the world including Argentina.
    We are not as poverty stricken as you may have been led to believe. The lowest paid on the Islands is way better of than 90% of the Argentine population. Why even Argentina is in debt to many billions of dollars. Meanwhile Falkland Islanders are enjoying even more increase in wealth and Oh Boy will we have some money to spend in the very near future. But seriously it does not matter how rich a country is it is how rich in ones self matters most. Falkland islanders are indeed envied because they are so rich in happiness.

    The Rightful Owners Of The Land

    Before they were settled these Islands unknown,
    They first had to be discovered and claimed.
    The earliest recordings span four hundred years,
    When these Islands were discovered, but not then named.
    A British sea voyager called Captain John Davis,
    Had discovered them in the year fifteen ninety two.
    A succession of people has since laid their claims,
    They all thought they were right , but nobody knew.
    For the next two hundred years , whalers and sealer alike.
    Frequently spent many months on these shores.
    But nobody laid claim in all of that time,
    Until the French and the British landed people and stores.
    The French sold their claim to the Country of Spain,
    Who passed on these rights to their South American friend.
    The gift has been disputed by the British who claimed,
    These Islands were hers and they would defend to the end.
    Britain had settled these Islands for over two hundred years,
    Before Argentina had even been invented,
    But as soon as the Spanish had created this state,
    The Argentines have long since been interested.
    But the rightful owners of this land we surely all know,
    Are the pioneers who settled them and made it their home.
    They have lived here since then, developing this land,
    Now generations on, why don’t you all leave them alone.
    To the people who live here , it’/s clear in our minds,
    That these Islands are definitely our home.
    This place really does belong to us now,
    As over two hundred years have clearly shown.
    So the Argentina and all of her claims,
    Take a long hard look at where you began,
    The fact that you are in existence at all,
    Is because you were created by the Country of Spain.
    We need to ask why you still make this claim,
    Do you really think this is some kind of spoil,
    Or is for something else that we have,
    Like the abundance of fish and possibly oil.
    It’s a fact when you came here in the year eighty two,
    You said then this place was to cold.
    So why keep on whingeing the way that you do,
    The fact is your

    The president of Argentina is one the most corrupt person in the world Argentines know this that is why they are the smartest people on this planet; they know how to elect their leaders.
    They have one world record the 8th land mass in the world therefore the largest land that is mismanaged this is a record that nobody will surpass.

    I hope you can understand me. I am pretty consistent on most issues, though I have largely stopped posting on the Falkland issues because, I believe, the irrefutable case has been made.

    You say: “The Kelpers have nothing to show except their incompetency to modernized the islands.”
    There are many small nations around the world that have defined 'development' and modernising their country in *their own terms*. They do not subscribe to the 'Emirates approach' and are more content with 'the auld ways'.
    That's not to say that TFI will not build with oil money, but I am pretty pleased with the prudent behaviour of not spending a windfall until you have it in your hand.

    105 SussieUS . Seems thsat you don't know what happines really is or you would not be so full of anger in your comments.
    You choose to ignore Falkland islanders and their views because they have what you want. Wake up idiot. The Islanders are a people in their own right and we have got where we are today because we are both hard working and reliable and more so can be trusted. Fact is we are very happy and as a nation veruy wealthy and above all we know how to look after ourselves and we have a world class standing of bieng the most friendliest people on earth. Can't say the same applies to you and ypour lot. The only way of life you appear to know is one of violance and human greed. Bit like th epenguin who steels from their neighbours because they are to dambed tired to get of their ass to work. Your lot are no differant. You have a huge country but don't know how to develope it so there is no chance of your lot making our country a better place than we have already. Oh and of course the real issue in your eyes is that in soite of all attemots to disrupt us we are getting ever closer to pumping oil. How rivh we are all going to be when that happens . Quit now looser because from where I am sitting you appear to have little or nothing.

    My country Argentina has the best food in the world, something the UK and the islanders cannot say.
    By the way talking about the UK, most of the american visitors returning from the 2012 Olympics stated that the worst of all in London is the lack of good food and the rubbish boodly english people!

    Sorry about the spelling but I was trying to make a point. Understanding the Argentine speak prompted me to reply with mistakes because to be honest SussieUS seems rather confused and thought a few errors might get the message through. Might be working to.
    We eat very well have a lifestyle that unfortunately SussieUS only dreams about. We travel the world. If we are so called retards then please explain why Argentina is billions of dollars in debt to the world while our Country has a healthy surplus .
    No one can put any price on happiness and above all freedom which we have both of on the islands. Unlike poor sussieUS we are not run by dictators but have a free and democratic society. So instead of whining on about how retarded we are why not come here and see for your self you uneducated idiot. Why would we ever want to eat your rubbish unhealthy food stuff. From what I see your people are overweight from purging themselves. That to me is a sign of a very unhealthy Country and as for the pretty girls you say you have. We have an answer to that just look at their mothers and see how aged they usually become in a short space of time. Why our fifty year old women here still look like they are in their 20's. Very desirable. But hey what can you expect when your people are so deprived. Oh and by the way we are still British and proud. We do not have a history of cleansing our Country which sadly Argentina does.

    Oh and this time no spelling mistakes either how boring !!!! Yawn

    We do not have high rise buildings because we don’t have overcrowding like you do any way why would we want live in such crowded places when we have wonderful open land to build on. Land that we own. From all the big cities I have been to see they remind me of the Rat race most would like to leave from.

    Paper never refuses the Ink it is printed on and you believe what you want to believe from the images you see of our home. Families here are rich enough to own private homes unlike your Country where people are forced by desperation to live in cramped conditions because they do not have the personal wealth to afford anything different.

    I actually feel sorry for you SussieUS because from what I read from your entries here you seem to me a lost person who has very little in life other than that you may be quite wealthy or think you are. Either way in my books money does not buy happiness.
    You do seem to have a real grudge of Falkland islanders is it because we actually have something you do not Have , Happiness. Unlike you we Islanders are well educated and informed and probably know more about you than you do about us. After all we have had to put up with your Countries bullying tactics for years but have been grown up enough to realize that you do act like spoilt children.
    I have a question for you . If you had the opportunity would you actually come and live here alongside us or are you to up your self to try.
    Funny how you keep mentioning the word retard, well if we are retard as you suggest then why is it we have forgotten more than you have learned. I am sure that we Islanders would be more than happy to educate you to the real world. One outside your dictators regime where they teach you what they want you to know. Not very democratic is it.

    The worst president Argentina ever had was Carlos Menen.
    There was no reason for former argentine president Carlos Menen to resume diplomatic relations between Argentina and the UK.
    But, what really takes my attention is UK PM Kamoron insisting in keeping diplomatic relations with my Argentina. He keeps saying the islanders are suffering continued daily harrasment from Argentina, so why UK PM Kamoron don't break diplomatic relations with my country?

    e-coli, not c-dificile, and its from what you have been eating, not putting in your “arse”

    121 Danny- the book takes you down some very interesting roads, naturally someone English would read it differently from a German, and the Argentine crew of a hijacked submarine is one of the highlights of the whole novel.
    But there is one British colonel who suffers from a rare form of weird sexual fantasy and dementia and develops a very strange eating habit. He is warned by his doctor to take antibiotics before “dinner”. Judging by what has been coming out of SussieUS's mouth I thought she deserved the same warning!
    If you have the time, read the book, Pynchon is American and he has very interesting takes on the Anglo-German dynamic.
    Yes, the world would have been quite a different place from any number of scenarios between 1938-1945, I often wonder if we got the best one.

    Actually ... E. coli and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile). No hyphens, in text they should be bold/underlined/italicised, and in scientific texts, with the defining authority eg Linneus (L.).
    Biologists are SUCH pedants!

    When talking to Sussie, however, a common generic is more appropriate - faecal germ / fecal germ (US) seems more fitting.
    For people with less understanding, or more spleen, there are even more common terminologies.

    While living in my home town of Comodoro Rivadavia, about 241 miles away from the islands, I did not have any interest to visit your islands.
    Why should I visit the islands now?... To see what?
    All what is shown in the internet is POVERTY.
    I had visit the islands of Sumatra and Jakarta, Indonesia. The islands of Mindanao, Negros and Cebu in the Philippines and the American Samoa island of Tau.
    All of these islands have good hotels, apartments, air/sea transportation, good food, the CNN news and the USA Today newspapers. As you can see, islands found in third world countries offers the best to tourists.
    Which are the best islands: Hawaii and Tokyo!
