    Argentina should take due note of the determination expressed here - N.B. Argentina will NEVER obtain sovereignty of the FALKLAND ISLANDS.

    And...you will NEVER get your greasy paws on the Falklands...even if you do invade at the cost of 100,000 Argentines (not including you) that you wanted to “sacrifice”.

    And...your government knows this, but uses the “Malvinas” as a smoke screen to allow them to rape you...whilst you beg them for more..!

    And.....LOL

    Bring the standard of running Argentina to that with which the Falkland Islands run their society.

    Or not, as you prefer.

    Perhaps that would be easier to achieve if the Falklands annexed Argentina.

    soo... you want to rule the Falklands to stop any drilling at all.... its got nothing to do with wanting to grab all those natural resources to further enrich your corrupt government?

    ..but in the meantime... anything goes as your position is so weak you cant go to the international courts....

    @Malen #9:

    You guys keep on whining on that environmental subject, why not have a look withing your own borders? Tierra del Fuego, which is closer to Antarctica than the Falklands, is full of petrol suckers. Ashore and at sea. And what about this beautiful carbon - energy plant in Rio Turbio? Rest of the world closes them down because of environmental concerns and Argentina (and China) puts them up! Why bother using coal with the humongous amount of water tumbling down the mountains, ready to be converted into energy?

    @9 Really? Perhaps you could clarify the impartiality of Greenpeace argieland. Especially as its main concern seems to be getting its pirates out of Russia's clutches!
    @11 If you already have oil, why are you buying the stuff? And how will you get the fish once your fishing boats no longer have fuel?

    @17 I'm sure that argies have told you that treaty doesn't apply. Despite the treaty having the title “CONVENTION between Great Britain and the Argentine Confederation, for the Settlement of existing Differences and the re-establishment of Friendship”, it doesn't actually settle “existing Differences”. That's because Senor Arana had his fingers crossed when he signed. At the appropriate moment, all the members of the argie Congress had their fingers crossed when they ratified it. Naturally, as members of their state's political leadership, they had no idea what they were ratifying. Curiously, in 1866, the argie vice-president, addressing the Congress, didn't mention that the Falkland Islands were still an issue between the UK and argieland. Strange that, isn't it?

    @9 Greenpeace is not taking a political view - it is taking a practical view. If Argentina were, God forbid, to ever obtain sovereignty of the archipelago they would still develop the oil deposits and the danger that Greenpiece fears would still exist.

    So, your comment is, as usual, total rubbish!

    Yes, the considered view of a Queens Council (the argies won’t have a clue on that) is of course muted.

    QC's are unused to having to shout for people in power to listen to what they are saying because they want to hear.

    Argies of course are the diametric opposite of intelligent powerful people and therefore think it is funny. We can all understand that position; coming from a position of utter weakness as it does how can they possibly comprehend what is going on?

    Never mind argies TMBOA is, we are told, fully recovered and ready to lead you to a glorious future.

    #32 Rajoy IS the Prime Minister and NOT the president, so @Pete Bog is correct. Spain has not had a president since your buddies defeated the Republic in 1939. Spain is a constitutional monarchy.

    But again, another pointless, and factually incorrect post Dany. Well done.

    Anyway , not content with wanting other peoples' islands , the Kirchner govt. are now passing draconian laws restricting property ownership , so Argentines will have a lot more to worry about than the Falklands question . As most Malvinistas on here don't own so much as the laptops they troll on , the don't have to worry .
