    Argentina take note.

    The way to do business successfully with international firms and achieve success is not to egotistically posturize, impose punitive sanctions, nationalise them and generally p1ss them off.

    But then Argentina do not listen to advice as they consider themselves the master race.

    Argentina=Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory.

    Who did Peron pick that up from I wonder?

    Isn't it Marcos, Jose or Raul who believes that FIC is the Government of the Falkland Islands, and uses that assumption as evidence of Britain's control over the islands through the use of a British company?

    The more successful the Falklands become,
    The more they must be on their guard
    As the wolves thieves, and the greedy sit on the horizon, ready-waiting ..

    Just an honest thought..

    “We have an exciting future in prospect.”
    RKH was saying the same thing a few months ago

    RKH 125.38 -1.75 (-1.38%)
    Let's ask a British investor:

    “ MAYDAY MAYDAY... we need urgent assistance, we are taking on shorters and are sliding close to the 110 rocks................Who could of seen this coming ? this vessel was full of positive bullshitttttttte when she set sail. MAYDAY MAYDAY......Women and children in the lifeboats first, then the gullible !!!!!! LOL !!!! KI told you so”

    And yet Marcos can't do much research into the Argentine economy.

    Btw with all the floods in Europe; anyone notice who hasn't been on these forums for a couple of days?

    CFK - blue dollar 8.45 and climbing!
    - we can't stop the rising inflation!!
    - “”The Falkland's economy is on the threshold of a decade of dramatic growth with the development of the Sea Lion discovery”!!!

    Let's ask a Troll:

    “MAYDAY MAYDAY!!, Falklands are taking on investors, we need some 'negative spin' urgently!!

    Meanwhile, Argentina's sinking fast !!!

    Why won't the IMF lower any lifeboats ???
    Help us, help us, we can't swim!!

    It's not fair!! It's not fair!!!! ”

    Great news :) doubt Argentina will be happy.... but they never are

    continuing a old claim is so 180 years ago. my opinion, stupid then stupid now.

    they don't like it maybe they should try and take the islands again? it doomed them in 1982 so they have nothing to lose? i guess.

    fact is Argentina invaded in 1982 and as a consequence of that the islands will never choose to become part of Argentina, Ever.

    they should accept they, the islanders, have been there nearly as long as Argentina has been a country and they have been a UK territory longer then they have been both Spanish, French or Argentina. Full stop.

    They love to post when something goes down in the Falklands or up in Argentina. Remember think posting the peso at 6, then 8, then 9? Funny he never posted the reverse. One would have to assume by his posts the markets only go up in Argentina and down everywhere else

    I think he thinks we are all as dumb as he is.

    “.Look dracula face that has this pirate, my God!”

    I tried Google Translate, but your post still makes no sense.

    Try again.
