    Do NASA have permission to overfly Antarctica.?
    The whole world knows that this is MALVINAS ANTARCTICA and belongs to Argentina.

    Let us look at it like this..... eventually the whole world will belong to Argentina, this is why. They claim the Falklands because it is close, so therefore it is Argie, then because SG & SSI is then close, they own that. Because the Andes go under the sea and then come up again in Antarctica they then own that. Then because Antarctica can be closer to Africa and Australia etc they then own those, it just goes on and on until they start claiming the moon and planets for the same reason, being close. Eventually acting like a black hole sucking in the whole universe and then as predicted imploding into themselves, which to be honest is not too far away Ha Ha :).

    #1 Nobody says Antartica is called Malvinas; however it, or part of it, may be Argentine...

    MAY be, but some of your other posters have claimed that it DOES belong to Argentina and ALL the surrounding seas.
