    Everybody will be bored by the Falklands/Malvinas being brought up again! What a time waster!

    “We have much to discuss with Argentina which will be represented by the Vice-president and the Foreign Minister, and they are also very much interested on a statement, joint declaration regarding the Malvinas, so there is no room for speculations”, insisted Garcia Margallo.

    Well, so that's decided then.

    This is a taste of what is likely to happen once the Islands Referendum has been published and in defiance of the UN: business as usual by the lying RG and Spain.

    Spain is, of course, one of the “weak links” of Europe. Major economic and financial problems, massive unemployment, internal rebellion, too many fond recollections of fascism and dictatorship, external belligerency (Gibraltar, Morocco). Heading rapidly toward the status of failed and rogue state!

    Argentina really knows how to look after their friends, stabbing them in the back, how the rest of the the world will celebrate when Argentina goes bankrupt, again.

    Can't come soon enough, justice, how sweet you will taste.

    Surfer, In ww2 Argentine donated thousens of tons of food to Spain, every month, fresh food. What did Spain to us in 2001 in our worse moment?. they made a loan to us with huge interests rates. So they made money and now claimed to have made us a favour.
    In 2001 we were alone, broke and with no friends except our Mercosur Partners.
    Spain in 2001 discriminated our citizens who traveled there to make a living, for work to sustain their families. A pregnant woman was deported from the airport when she had all the requirements and work permits to reside there.
    That was Spain in 2001. A piece of crap. Their companies are making billions in Argentina and southamerica. Thats how good their are treated here.
    Thousens of Spanish are comming here for the same reason our people traveled to Spain in 2001.

    Argentina is broke; CFK has not yet told her people, still is still awaiting another victory,
    Anything and everything to distract her people will help CFK,

    So she may well be a dangerous person, at this moment in time, trying to provoke trouble.

    “The event expected to re-launch the role of Spain as a ‘bridge’ between Europe and Latinamerica”

    Please re-arrange these words into a famous phrase or saying:-
