South America solid behind Argentina’s Falklands’ claim at UN decolonization meeting

Wednesday, October 10th 2012 - 18:41 UTC
Full article 146 comments

The opening session of the UN Fourth Committee on decolonisation was dominated by a joint verbal assault on Britain by South American countries over the issue of the Falkland Islands. One after another, representatives of governments in the region called on the UK to enter into dialogue with Argentina over the sovereignty of the Islands, which are claimed by the government in Buenos Aires.

    I do wish the British Government would point out that the history of the Islands didn't start in 1833 as the Argentinian government likes to portray.

    This needs to be rebutted every time it is brought up.

    Of course South America is “solid”. Solid between the ears. Not that they use their ears much. Too busy gabbing. Under international law, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. By virtue of landing, settlement, prior claim, occupation and unti possidetis. Uti possidetis (Latin for “as you possess”) is a principle in international law that territory and other property remains with its possessor at the end of a conflict. In addition to all other bases, did Britain fight a war in 1982? Did it win? Was Britain in possession of the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands when the argies surrendered? It was. So f*** off South America. Do we have to beat the sh*te out of every one of you? Quite easy really. Faced by a hostile continent, the UK has every justification for using its nuclear missiles to protect its territory. Wake up, South America. Argieland is lying. It always lies. We know it. You know it. And we will fight to the death. Whose death? Yours! We cannot be bullied. And, at the end of the day, you mean nothing to us!

    Try not to laugh:

    http://allafrica.com/stories/201210091203.html

    Speaking on behalf of the south Latin American countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela), Ambassador of Peru to the UN Mr. Enrique Roman-Morey underlined that these countries ”strongly support efforts of the Secretary General and his Personal Envoy to reach a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution, which will provide for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara in the context of arrangements compatible with the principles and purposes of the UN Charter and Resolution 1514 (XV) of the General Assembly and other pertinent resolutions.”

    It would be cheaper to have the referendum in reserve as a plan for what we would do if Argentina ever got their hands on the Falklands.
    Then we definitely would be a 'dominated, subjugated and dominated population', and we would have nothing in common with our colonisers. The UN would recognise our independence. Job done.

    There is no “British” colony in S.A The Falklands are not in S.A. - They are in the South Atlantic - look at a MAP !!
    The Argentine is certainly a colony unless the original inhabitants decided to change their features and start speaking Spanish.

    We Argetines support a nuclear defence program in Argentine to end the threat of illegal occupation by 3000 illegal white people turning Antartica into a weaponized area and a threat to pease in south America. UK should let their citizens back to their homeland as they claim to be British and not americans,. Go back to Ukistan and take the Falkland island corporate with you.

    Not to worry folks its just the meaningless and powerless decolonization committee crazies screaming from the roof once more.

    Its widely accepted the decolonization committee is worthless, hence the reason all important and powerful countries have effectively withdrawn from it.

    I don't really understand why Argentinian posters keep talking about nuclear weapons, its not like we've ever threatened to use them!

    Its our conventional forces they need to watch out for and if Argentina ever did somehow get and use a nuclear weapon on the Falkland's the fallout would kill a lot of Argentinian people, although this is irrelevant as the UK would obviously retaliate which would be the end of Argentina for good.

    It's all a bit silly really...

    Argentina lost the islands, accept it. They lost, period. Fathom trying to but the borders of the world as they were in 1833 as Argentina so desires. Well Argentina and Brazil can start out by returning what they conquered from Paraguay during the Triple Alliance War.

    I wonder if Argentina and Hugo will invade the islands. It seems like they really are planning for it. Interesting to see what happens.

    The post modernist bullhockey from Estreme is hilarious.

    A colonial “situation” but not a colonial “people” (because situations have rights, not people, I guess - then again, it IS the UN, individual rights mean nothing there). “To allow the British population on the Islands to become the arbitrator of a dispute to which their own country is a party distorts the right of self determination of peoples ***because there is not a people subject to the subjugation, domination or exploitation of a colonial power.***” What then, should a neutral party, like the Lower Buvlakistaniis vote on behalf of the Falkand Islanders “true conscience”? Or would Estreme rather have a small committee handpicked by CFK vote for them.

    I don't know if the translators were crying or laughing so hard their drinks shot out their noses.

    It's clear that the Argentines are absolutely terrified of the referendum. Good heavens! The people who have the most skin in this game wanting a vote -- and a vote that will likely never be for them. I bet they are wishing every night that the Junta had disappeared all of those pesky free-thinking Islanders in 1982 when they had the chance.

    Here we go again, Chori Tetra Queen and her gang of gayboys screaming again about the Falklands. It's funny that Kretina keeps going on about this even though her country Argentina is crumbling around her. And her cabinet of ministers are also a bunch of screaming queens, they are all closet gays, like most men in Argenitna, they love to swing both ways. If you are straight in Argentina it's amazing how the guys all look at each other's crotches as you walk in the street, they are always trying to grab your buttcheeks, and if you shake an Argentine guys hand they always squeeze extra hard and then rub a finger in the middle of your palm. Nothing wrong wtih being gay, but I don't know who is taking care of the Argentine women since the guys are all doing each other? Maybe that is why the women are all so bitchy, we call them mal atendidas.

    The typical English hypocrisy and hopeless: “The UK, attaches great importance to self-determination” ....... people of Saxon descent (as the current population of the Malvinas), should be added to be more honest. It asked the Argentine settlers in 1833 if they wanted to be usurped, the Hindus if they wanted to be colonized, the Chagossians if they would be tortured and expelled, the Boers in South Africa led to the concentration camps, the aborigines of Australia hunted as kangaroos and driven inland, to Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1806 and 1807 .... to ..... to ..... to, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., let alone attacks on civilians in the Balkans in 1999 .... (same NATO that we have in the Malvinas).
    “said the UK had no doubt about its sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands and its surrounding islets and waters” says this guy, see:
    “It is not at all clear to me that we never ever held sovereignty over these islands”, Duke of Wellington, Prime Minister, 1829.
    “The British occupation of 1833 was at the time an act of wanton aggression”, Memorandum of the British Foreign Office official, 1946.
    “The only question was who had the best claim as we are attaching for the first time the islands. I think undoubtedly were the United Provinces of Buenos Aires”, Ronald Campbell, secretary of foreign affairs, 1911.
    “Sitting down hard on the islands and avoid talking to the Argentines, because we could not sustain our arguments in court”, legal counsel for the Foreign Office, Gerald Fitzmaurice, 1936.
    “Britain fully recognizes the sovereignty of the Argentine public authorities on the territories in which proclaim their jurisdiction...”, Treaty of Peace, Friendship and Trade between Argentina and Great Britain, 1825, (after the Argentina take possession, 1820).

    “If you carefully read the memorandum of December 1910, surely must have realized that Argentina's attitude is not ridiculous or childish. I had assumed that our right to the Malvinas Islands was irrefutable. This is far from being the case”, Sir Malcolm Robertson, ambassador to Argentina, 1927.
    “While the Committee believes that the historical evidence is finely balanced, we are forced to conclude that the weight of evidence argues for the position of Argentine bonds to the islands, at least the eastern islands, which was, while the British occupation in 1833, more substance than it was or is accepted by government officials in the UK. In this conclusion we are supported not only by the evidence we were given during the investigation but also by doubts on this matter were repeatedly expressed by British officials during the early part of the century”, Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Commons, in 1982.

    Goodness me, how you do get excited over a country where people are allowed to have a different opinion, and speak it without fear. Your reporting one side of a debate is utterly meaningless. It works like this; someone speaks on one side, then someone speaks on the other side, and a consensus is reached. We know what that was in 1982.
    The day you show me evidence of someone speaking in your parliament in 1982 against the government I might start getting interested.

    ““It is not at all clear to me that we never ever held sovereignty over these islands”, Duke of Wellington, Prime Minister, 1829.”

    This is taken out of context, he continued:

    “That which I would recommend is that the government of Buenos [Ayres] should be very quietly but very distinctly informed that His Majesty has claims upon Falklands Islands and that His Majesty will not allow of any settlement upon, or any cession to, individuals or foreign nations of these islands by Buenos Ayres, which shall be inconsistent with the King’s acknowledged right of sovereignty.

    I think that this is all that can be done at present. It will have the effect of impeding any settlement or cession by Buenos Ayres and as we may suppose that the French and Americans will hear of this communication they will not be disposed to act in contravention to it unless determined upon a quarrel with this country.”

    It is very boring to have to reiterate this again and again.

    As we all know, the dispute was settled in the 1850 peace treaty, wherein Argentina ceded the Falkland Islands to Britain.

    “VII. Under this convention perfect friendship between her Britannic Majesty’s government and the government of the Confederation, is restored to its former state of good understanding and cordiality.”

    Only one islands is mentioned in the treaty: Martin Garcia in the Rio Uruguay delta.

    This was later confirmed by two Argentine presidents and an Argentine vice president.

    President Bartolomé Mitre 1865: “… no ha habido sino motivos para consolidar las relaciones amistosas que existen entre éste y aquellos gobiernos.” http://constitucionweb.blogspot.com.ar/2010/09/mensaje-del-presidente-de-la-republica_5176.html (Source: Heraclio Mabragaña, “Los Mensajes 1810-1910”, Buenos Aires 1910, vol. III, p. 227).

    President Domingo Faustino Sarmiento: “El estado de nuestras relaciones exteriores responde á las aspiraciones del país. Nada nos reclaman las otras Naciónes: nada tenemos que pedir de ellas, sino es la continuación de las manifestaciones de simpatía con que de parte de pueblos y gobiernos ha sido favorecida la República por sus progresos y espíritu de justicia.” (Heraclio Mabragaña, “Los Mensajes 1810-1910”, Buenos Aires 1910, vol. III, pag. 286, which can be found in Biblioteca Nacional de la República Argentina, Agüero 2502, Recoleta, Buenos Aires, Argentina)

    Vice-president Marcos Paz 1866: “Este mismo gobierno [británico] aceptó por árbitro al Presidente de la República de Chile, sobre perjuicios sufridos por súbditos ingleses en 1845. Aun no se ha resuelto esta cuestión que es la única que con aquella nación subsiste.” http://constitucionweb.blogspot.com.ar/2010/09/mensaje-del-presidente-de-la-republica_5176.html (Original source: Heraclio Mabragaña, “Los Mensajes 1810-1910”, Buenos Aires 1910, vol.

    This is just the standard “we back argentina because we are all the products of colonialism and want to make ourselves stand out as independent countries opposed to our former masters or their ilk”.

    They are still playing out in their minds the struggles of independence from the early 1800s. For them it was an heroic age, and they could do no wrong.

    The fact that Spain, let alone Argentina, never had full control of the islands, as we also had a claim, will not enter into their heads.

    European = wrong, South American = right is the only view they will entertain.

    Most of these countries are simply going through the motions. We may as well move on as this proclomation actually proves nothing about the right or wrong of the Argentinan or our claims.

    For instance. Another war between the UK and Argentina would be a win win situation for Argentinas 'supporters'.

    War is bad for business. Argentina never really did recover from thier military adventurism of 1982 and psychologically they are never likely to get over it. Economically and politically they have been retarded and another war would probably finish the job.

    Of course it wouldn't do the UK any good either but likewise, backing down would be even worse for Britain but for the rest of South America outside of Argentina? So long as they can avoid the inevitable political aftermath then a terminally fucked Argentina and a further economically weakened UK would only be a good thing.

    I think my favourite aspect of this verbal arse kicking contest is how the Malvinistas give out the shit in shovel fulls then cry foul when the same shit is hurled right back at them. It sums up the Argentinian claim to me and Malvinistas in general. They can give it but they can't take it.

    “It asked the Argentine settlers in 1833 if they wanted to be usurped”

    Captain Onslow DID ask them if they wanted to stay, only four civilians asked to leave (Brazilians and Uruguayans).

    So the civilians were happy with British Rule in 1833.
    Your post suggests this but I suspect it is sarcastic.
    Do you find it suprising that these proto Argentines (Argentina was not a state until the 1850s, another point you repeatedly ignore), chose British rule when the military authorites (usually synchronous with law and order) rebelled ripping the guts out of their commmander and raping his wife in front of his children?

    Really people, who gives a crap about what Argentina claims or not? It doesn't make a whole lot of difference in the world does it? Just ignore their rants about the subject. Argentina already doesn't want to import anything from the world so there isn't much commerce to be gained. Just break off relations with that place and ignore them like a spoiled crying little child. Eventually they will see that no one gives a crap and move on to something else. Or maybe they will invade the islands and then the Brits will go and test out there new military weapons. Nothing better for a strong military than some training every now and then.

    Anyhow, we all know that Argentina doesn't really think they own the islands, they just want to take the pressure away from their failing economy. That is what they did last time and they are repeating it again. Thus we are supposed to learn history and not repeat our same mistakes. But I guess the Argie government doesn't teach that stuff do they? Another reason to eliminate the government education system because it only gets used to brain wash the children.

    I do not see that that phrase is taken out of context. What you clearly transcribed by British strategy to seize the Malvinas arrogating rights over them. “I think that this is all that can be done at present”. Adds nothing different.

    75 St.John
    Arana-Southern Treaty in no way relates to the Malvinas, but only at the end of the British blockade to Buenos Aires and if not named Las Malvinas, is because there is absolutely nothing to the case. Treaty is a different matter.
    Incidentally, another aggression over our country by the arrogant English who tried it was resolved by the English when they realized they were never going to turn our will to maintain absolute jurisdiction under Argentina, inland rivers.
    And in no other of its citations, reference is made specifically to the Malvinas.
    Reproduce the protest filed by Ambassador Manuel Moreno in London 1842 with official:
    “The undersigned, in execution of duties under his instructions, is the need to express, to the silence of the United Provinces is not interpreted as a tacit assent, that the United Provinces can not and will never settle with resolution of the government of SMB... they consider unjust and contrary to their obvious rights; reproduce their protests of JUNE 17, 1833 and DECEMBER 29, 1834, against the sovereignty that has assumed the crown of Great Britain in the Malvinas Islands, and against dispossession and dispossession perpetrated against establishment of the Republic in Puerto Luis, also known as Puerto Soledad, the SMB corvette Clio are owed, so by any act resulting from the occupation: accordingly, the government of the United Provinces deposited these heads and leaves all the value currently and at ANY OTHER TIME MIGHT HAVE.”

    At 106, all the treaties, all the talk, all the sword waving, all the successive claims, all the SA counties, all the bullshit, makes not an ounce of difference to the current situation, and will not unless 1) the RG,s come up with a long term strategy to win over the Falklanders, or 2) take the Falklands by force!

    No British government will simply hand them over, regardless of whether you have international support or not! And in fact can not make that happen!

    So keep posting, keep up the rhetoric, in the knowledge that neither you, or your flea circus governments can do bugger all about it!

    Long live the Falklanders, may they continue to live in peace, and continue to make large wads of cash! Down with the greedy self-inflated ex colonial powers who now wish to steal a small happy populations home and way of life!

    CFK plan is really working.. after she started this “malvinas” rhetoric while i was traveling there(and saw the true face of Argentina), i have stopped buying argie-products and started buying more British products than before, also support British athletes in sporting events, oh well, you can count the last one out, it doesn't really matter if i support them or not, since i don't think i has any effect on the outcome me screaming like crazy in front of telly, it's just words.

    ..but yeah, not buy argie-products, yes buy British products and choose a bottle of Chilean wine instead of argie-wine, that's not much, but i'll do my part.

    the cunning tactics of malvineros really work

    @112 The shelves aren't exactly pouring of Argentinian goods.
    Only thing i can make of is wine and there's always the Chilean bottle next to it.

    @113 Then why don't you go live in there if it's such a great country?
    You should do it and put all your money in Argentinian bank account.

    Small wretched kelper:
    All this discussion shows the eternally stupid arguments null pirates to seize the alien, insisting on a treaty (of 1849 NO 1850, study a little more) that has nothing to do with the custión MALVINAS ARGENTINAS. It was the British surrender to Rosas and the withdrawal of the invaders before greeting the Argentine flag with 21 guns.
    Also this stupid argument with absolute evidence shows that there is a conflict (generated by England) only two (2) parts: England (the country thief) and Argentina Republica and that the inhabitants of the Malvinas Argentinas, the born there as outsiders, have NOTHING SAY about as certified over 40 UN resolutions.
    And here I end the discussion.

    Peace treaty ratified 15 May 1850 - the date that counts - study a little more.

    As we all know, because it has been shown over and over again using official Argentine documents, this was confirmed by two Argentine presidents and an Argentine vice-presidents.

    The NON-binding UN resolutions were invalidated when Argentina started an unprovoked military attack on The Falkland Islands in 1982.

    The only BINDING UN resolution in the Falkland Islands dispute, No. 502 of April 1982 was ignored by Argentina.

    José Malvinero: “And here I end the discussion.” - wise of you, as you have been shown wrong all the time.

    I really hope there is a great future for Uruguay (AG can go burn in hell).

    Hopefully the Chin will be getting on with estimating and designing the deep sea port and the new tranch of exploration licences result in oil eventually coming to us unless your mates try to steal it like they do everything else.

    What would you do if / when that happened, which country would you back, or am I wrong?

    I would of course back Uruguay against Argentina in your hypothetical reality. In the real world though, I back Arg and Uru (and Bra, Chi, Bol, Ven, Ecu, Col, Par, Per, Nic, Pan, Gua...) against the invasive lots that are the yanquis and the english.

    You are a bitter twisted little person , are you not.
    If, as you say, we are all doomed, then it would be cheaper keeping the troops in the Falklands than in the UK. The accommodation is there along with the infrastructure. Plenty of fish in the local waters, so food is not a problem.
    When you lead the invasion force with your shiny new licence to float, you will get a warm welcome.

    holy crap the argies are retarded, LOL, they're talking about some Malvinas-place which doesn't even exist. And they even have a celebration day for a lost war.

    By the way Guzz, no one in South-America is backing your claim. No one cares, they don't give a shit about Argentina. No one likes Argentinians, they all say argies are arrogant fucktards. I have been traveling all over Latin America and i always asked people, what do you think about Argentinians, and they would respond something like: “son arrogantes, no me gusta”

    “against the invasive lots that are the yanquis and the english.”

    Wrong.

    It was Argentina that invaded the Falkland Islands in 1982, the UK did not invade Argentina.

    Argentina are the invasive lot because they actually, did, invade.

    Hopefully in the future the Islands will develop enough to be independent, then things will be be fixed, and the OAS (if they are not too stupid to include the Falklands) will have strong links with Europe, the British Commonwealth and the USA (who are rightly treating Argentina like a bad smell at the moment).

    But fortunately seeing as we keep hearing resolution 2065 is so important from Malvanista posters, the UK is looking after the 'Interests' of the islands.

    So what if all of South America supports Argentina, any scholar only has to examine history to see their claim is cock-eyed?

    'Luke Coffey: The UK should confront Argentina over its debt'
    http://conservativehome.blogs.com/platform/2012/10/luke-coffey-the-uk-should-confront-argentina-over-its-debt.html

    'General Assembly - CPSD/508 - 12/10/2012'
    The representative of the United Kingdom has, in turn, exercised its right of reply after the remarks by Venezuela and the Plurinational State of Bolivia. She explained that his country had no doubt about its sovereignty over the Islands “ Falklands ”, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands. She added that the relationship between the UK and these territories was a modern relationship based on the right of peoples to choose their future. The United Kingdom attaches great importance to the principle of self-determination and allow the people of the Islands “ Falklands ”to decide their political future through a referendum to be held in 2013, she recalled.

    Responding to the representative of the United Kingdom, the representative of Argentina reiterated that the islands “Malvinas” South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands and the surrounding maritime areas are an integral part of Argentine territory. These territories are the subject of a sovereignty dispute and are illegally occupied by the United Kingdom. He urged the United Kingdom to return to the negotiating table with Argentina to find a just and lasting solution to the question of the islands. He denounced all references made ​​by the United Kingdom for a referendum to be held in 2013, calling the approach “action encouraged by the British to whether British citizens wish to remain British.” These areas, which are the subject of a dispute colonial, are illegally occupied by the United Kingdom, concluded the representative.'
