President Cristina Fernandez announced on Tuesday that 91 next of kin of Argentine combatants buried in NN graves at the Falkland Islands Darwin memorial have agreed and signed to have the remains DNA tested and clearly identified. Read full article
Those boys have lain there at peace for over 30 years. Many of them remain unidentified because their fellow ARGENTINES refused to assist in identifying them on the battlefields to the British forces.
May they continue to lie there in peace with there God - who knows who they are.
If they are to be exhumed - then sorry folks it is irrelevant what Arg or the Int Red Cross may say - that is Falklands soil and only Falkland Islands Govt can give that permission.and they will not be reburied there - they would be repatriated- Full Stop - end of.
I'm wondering what percentage DNA of the mad botox-riddled mutant is still human. It tells you the ghoulish mentality when they're willing to exploit dead bodies as a cheap political trick.
The UK and FI governments offered to repatriate these bodies years ago and Argentina refused, claiming that they were already buried on Argentine soil i.e. using them for political gain. To claim that it's anyone but their fault that the boys haven't been identified and returned home is sick and negligent.
You sound like what you are.... a Brit.
What happen? That fake referendum didn't go that well?
British Cemetery in Buenos Aires:
She promises to report on the progress on 2nd April, 2014!
The ghoul-show returns to the fore.
@5 will she make the same 12 hour speech next year?
@4 Sure, we have a cemetery on Argentine soil and you have one on Falklands soil. Fair swap.
Look after them do you?
Graves defaced in Argentina include terror victims
is there any depth this evil woman will not sink to to try and further the illegitimate argentinian claims regarding The Falklands. She is an example of pure evil.
**GHOUL LADY'S CORPSE SHOW ALERT: LEVEL 4**
Marcos- we are quite happy here- why is it botheringyou? I thought you gave all been screaming for months about illegality etc etc- so WHY does it bother you? After all we are a non existent people to you.
Anyone or nation who trys to play politics with war dead are at the botttom of the dungheap - ie CFK- you- and the creeps who made that video game that starts in the Arg war cemetery.
I need say no more.
She really is one putrid bastard of a human being for going this way.
Those are war graves.
She is filth.
**GHOUL LADY'S CORPSE SHOW ALERT: LEVEL 5**
**CORPSE SHOW IS IMMINENT, REPEAT, CORPSE SHOW IS IMMINENT**
we are quite happy here
Why does that matter? You are a planted invasionary population. Nothing more than pawns of a former colonial aggressor. Why would you wishes matter to anyone except you?
Just because you stole the island 180 years ago doesn't mean you own it.
@Tubalcain Alhambra, ARE YOU STUPID?? The whole of South America is an inplanted population mainly European immigrants,what makes you different from The islanders??? FFS your Botox queen is called Kirchner where the hell do you think that comes from? get a grip with history
@13 Interesting that your selected name includes Cain. The world's first murderer. Quite appropriate, don't you think? As I recall, Cain denied what he had done. Just as argieland lies.
But, don't you worry, sonny. The future is CERTAIN. 100% certain. The Islands will remain BRITISH for the foreseeable future. Then, when the Islanders are ready, the Islands will be INDEPENDENT. Most probably including a defence treaty with Britain and a continued British military presence.
Be satisfied. You have somewhere called Malvinas Argentinas in Cordoba Province. It's all you'll EVER have. Get used to it.
Sorry to disappoint you, but I am an European living in Europe. I can trace my family back 200+ years. I am not biased and I don't give a crap about Kirchner.
Yet, I don't think that the islanders have any claims. The GDP of the falklands is 100 million and their defense cost is 90 million. They are just means to an end. The end being militarization of the south Atlantic, theft of resources, power projections(jingoism) in britain and perpetuation of colonialism.
Stop deflecting the facts.
Sorry to disappoint you, but I am an European living in Europe. I can trace my family back 200+ years. I am not biased and I don't give a crap about Kirchner
What part of Europe? would it be the part that Hitler took a fancy to
Tubalcain Alhambra ,And I am an Anglo/Egyptian living in The UK so tell me what were the defence cost in say 1980 or 1981??? were the Islanders aware of any resourses lets say in 1929???
On what grounds do you think the Islanders do not have any claims yet you obviously believe Argentina does?? ofcourse it would be nice to know what country you are from.
@andy were the Islanders aware of any resourses lets say in 1929???
Whaling, fishing, securing a base of operation to launch wars of aggression against mainland South America like the ones in 1806 and 1807 when britain tried to capture Buenos Aires.
It's hard to look at the innocent falklanders and see anything but colonialist aggressors. For a lot of people their wishes mean nothing more than a front aiming to legitimize a land grab.
So you will agree then that Argentines being born of Spanish pirates are no different?? they are inplanted immigrants from Europe

... securing a base of operation to launch wars of aggression against mainland South America like the ones in 1806 and 1807 when britain tried to capture Buenos Aires.
The attacks on Buenos Aires in 1806 and 1807 were launched from Soth Africa, not from the Falkland Islands, there has never beeen an attack on mainland South America from the Falklands, so your comment about colonialist agressors is really a bit ridiculous!!!!!!
@Tubalcain Alhambra here are a few home truths for you that unfortunately make you sound stupid.
The European settlers who now populate Argentina – Italian, Spanish, German, Welsh – are the relatively recent inheritors of colonisers who quite simple exterminated the people whose land this was.” This process, which continued from 1820 to 1880, reached its apogee with what became known as The Desert Campaign of 1879, long after Argentina became independent from Spain.
Parris quotes the leader of the Desert Campaign, General Julio Argentino Roca, who later became President of Argentina and whose name and statues litter Argentina today as saying, “Our self-respect as a virile people obliges us to put down as soon as possible, by reason or by force, the handful of savages who destroy our wealth and prevent us from definitely occupying, in the name of law, progress and our own security, the richest and most fertile lands of the Republic.”
Referring to the claim that a civilian Argentine population was expelled from the Falklands in 1833, Parris says, ”It makes the blood boil to hear the current President of Argentina, in her recent letter to David Cameron, describe a pantomime skirmish involving a handful of people (most of whom stayed put anyway and kept their property) on some windswept islands far out into the ocean as having “forcibly stripped” her countrymen of their rightful land; and as being a blatant exercise of 19th Century colonialism.“ The hypocrisy!
Parris continues by calling Argentina the ”Rhodesia of the New World“ and asks, ”If Britain forcibly stripped Argentina of the Falkland Islands, what does Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner think the nation she leads did on the mainland? What words would she find for the cold-blooded and systematic destruction and total dispossession of Argentina's original population by the European invaders whose descendants' votes she now seeks?”
#16 Once again another Argie Troll that has been brainwashed from birth being fed lies which they endlessly repeat like demented robots. Short on facts, ignorant of history and full of shit. And, just like all the others they eschew living in Rgland because its an awful place to live your life.
@CaptainSilver And like most Argentines they seem to run when the truth is put before them
19- Tube - Shall I list for you the names of the civilans who CHOSE of their own Choice to stay and accept British Rule in Jan 1833?
The list of names is also on file in Argentine National Archives.
As for plundering - can you tell me who controls the fishing and hydrocarbon zones around the islands?
Answer is Falkland Islands Govt
Who receives any licensing and royalty revenues form these areas?
Answer is - The Falkland Islands Govt.
Also Defence Costs are a bit out - you say £90million - actual last year was just over £60million
Also Which Country,s Defence Minister has stated in public that if the British Forces were NOT in the Islands - then his forces would re-occupy?
Answer is - Argentine Defence Minister Putrelli.
The puppet masters are working hard at the moment.
Tubalcain Alhambra, different name but same stupid comments !
@ 4 Marcos Alejandro
British Cemetery in Buenos Aires
This proves that Buenos Aires is British soil, right?
They were used and abused by their regime in life and now it seems that they will be used and abused in death as well.
It's hard to take 'Tubalcain Alhambra' seriously when (s)he's just so very biased. I guess this is the new La Campora strategy, to pretend to be european and then just say the same sh!t as they always did. Kind of sad that they've run out of ideas.
Obviously lying argentine is obvious.
The whole of Europe is close to Germany, just look at the map - so why doesn't all of it belong to Germany?
Shouldn't it then belong to Germany - after all it used to belong to Germany for 5½ years!!!!
13 Tubalcain Alhambra who may I ask did we steel the Islands from. You answer that and maybe you have a case. I think you will find that Argentina did not exist when our people settled this land so not sure how you presume we stole it. further where did you steel your land from . Wouldn't be from the indigenous people by any chance . Do Not even attempt to educate us about who owns the Falklands until you have educated yourself who actually owns Argentina. Also the article says it all. All those unknown and known who are buried beneath British Soil should be removed and returned to the Country they came from in my book they had no right to be here in the first place because it did not belong to them no matter how you tell it. The Falklands belong to the people that live there who settled on them without firing a single shot in anger. Your lot well need I say anymore.
Dig them all up, ship them back and let them do what they want with the remains. They shouldn't have been buried there in the first place and it would remove any reason for Argentines to visit the islands with their smug faces.
Dig them all up ship them back and make sure they pay up front to cover the cost,if I remember rightly The Argentines even made it difficult to send the living back after the war
I admire the UK and the FALKLANDERS for having put up with all the rhetoric from Argentina and not sinking to their level. The Argies if they want to identify their dead why don't they send specialists and repatriate them. Because Argentina states that they are buried in Argentinian soil. Therefore any British buried in Argentinian cemeteries ( Buenos Aires ) by inference are buried in English soil. Seems logical to me.
When is the ghoul-hag putting the bodies on national telly?
They should be given a simple choice, repatriate them or they will be given sea burials. We need to start getting ruthless with these Argentines, I am personally sick to the back teeth of them.
@16,19 One final response to you, Cain, before you are consigned to the trollpit. Can you explain why there are no British military bases on South Georgia or the South Sandwich Islands? After all, if one is going to militarise somewhere the size of the South Atlantic, doesn't it make sense to put in military bases across the area? It's not difficult. Argieland covertly and illegally put a naval base on the British territory of Thule Island. As for resources, do you have evidence of the secret British whaling fleets? In respect of fishing, why are accusations not levelled against Spain, Japan, Taiwan, all of whom fish in the area? And, finally, the matter of the wars of aggression. We British have been very remiss there, haven't we? We've been on the Falkland Islands since 1690 and all we've done is to mount two small landings. In the invasion of 1806, Britain landed 1,668 troops with 6,000 more in reserve at Montevideo. In 1807, Britain landed up to 12,000 soldiers. Contrast that with the second landing of British forces in Portugal in 1809. They went ashore and stayed. They freed Portugal from the French and then moved into Spain. More defeats for the French and the British moved into France. It was called the Peninsular War. Can you add the two together and realise that, in 1806/7, Spain was a French puppet with possessions in South America? Do you criticise the Allies for landing at Anzio in 1944 and driving on Rome? The comparison? In 1944, the Allies landed in Italy to fight the Germans. In 1806/7, the British landed at Buenos Aires to fight the Spanish. As they were entitled to do. The argie slant that Britain invaded argieland is a lie. Unsurprising, argies have been lying since the 40s. When Hitler told Peron he could have the bits of the British Empire he fancied.
Of course the attacks in 1807 were launched from south africa. Between 1770 and 1811 the Falklands were governed by the Rio de la plata and there were Spanish soldiers there.
The innocent natives that enslaved women and children?
”Of the 310 individuals from whom DNA was extracted, 249 (80.3%) were assigned to one of the founding native American haplogroups. This finding confirms the persistence at high prevalence of native maternal lineages in the rural populations of central Argentina”
Many native populations were preserved to this day.The country was very loosely populated in the first place and there was no systematic extermination, unlike the one that was carried out in Africa and India by the British empire. It's pathetic when the biggest colonial aggressors (UK) point fingers.
@ 38 Ha ha, you complete and utter retard.
Of course the attacks in 1807 were launched from SOUTH AFRICA. Between 1770 and 1811 the Falklands were governed by the RIO DE LA PLATA and there were Spanish soldiers there.

No respect for the innocent.
CFK sod of and drop dead.
[ keep pushing ,
Son of Cain
So 80% can be traced back on the maternal line to native Amerindians. Wow I didnt know your troops had done that much raping during your glorious Conquest of the Desert
Or did you mean that 80% of the Argentine conscripts who died in the Falklands were of Amerindian origen?
Sepoys dying for thier country while the rest of you stayed comfotably in BA sipping medio y medio
