Malvinas: Argentina calls UK a lion that 'no longer frightens' and insists on dialogue

Friday, January 3rd 2014 - 23:41 UTC
Full article 219 comments

In a long statement recalling the 181st anniversary of the 'usurpation of our Malvinas, South Georgia, South Sandwich Islands and the adjoining maritime spaces' (almost three million square kilometers) the Argentine Foreign ministry contrasts Buenos Aires peaceful, dialogue attitude with the verbal aggressiveness from British officials when referring to the Malvinas issue.

    If your not frightened of us, feel free to try invading again... We may not be overly keen on fighting in Afghanistan, but just see what happens if you attack British territory.

    So here he is again snapping his braces, and parping on his klaxon, and we're supposed to believe at a) he's a diplomat and b) he just wants to negotiate something from us.

    It's all very entertaining, and quite remarkable that anybody should fall for it, even within Argentina.

    But surely the time has come for somebody to tip a bucket of cold water down his trousers?

    Looks like the Argentine government once more prefers to spend its time propagating nonsense rather than address the severe problems it has in its country. You know you're desperate when you start quoting newspapers and making stuff up about the UK ignoring resolutions whilst the head of the UN states very clearly the UK is not in breach of a single resolution.

    And if that isn't bad enough the only resolution broken in the past 50 years was the one the Argentine's broke with the illegal invasion.

    Oh the hilarity!

    Other quotes include

    “The Falklands referendum - ”a misnomer“, he said - was a violation of such UN resolutions which did not afford the islanders the right to self-determination. ”

    Britain had “no moral authority” when it came to ending colonialism, Mr Timerman said, claiming it was the country that had most often ignored UN rulings.

    “He accused Britain of ”an escalation of verbal attacks“ on Argentina during a year in which it also ”issued threats to several independent countries“ - notably Syria. ”

    Hector understands the psychology of prestige, but they have really not dared to do anything Britain need respond to.

    Spain on the other hand, with their illegal fishing and Garda incursions, firing upon Gib. civilians, and illegal border hold ups, that is provocation UK needs to respond to.

    I can see why they don't, though. With Spain in crisis, it would be a great national unifying issue were a foreign power to retaliate to Spain by military force.
    Just what Rajoy needs.

    Perhaps the UK should start supporting the Catalonians at the UN, in their fight for a Referendum and Self Determination.

    “Argentina is playing a waiting game, they know that when UK has a majority African, Pakistani, East European... population, in 30/40 years, it will hold no allegiance to a few hundred islanders of British descent in South Atlantic. They will then take it. Britain will have no Navy by then anyway”

    The Arana Southern Treaty, ratified in 1850 by Argentina and the UK, clearly settled the matter of the Falklands/Malvinas once and for all. In this treaty Argentina tacitly recognised British sovereignty over the archipelago.

    Well the UK may be a lion that “no longer frightens” BUT this February Timermam sure has hell demonstrated that 2 (TWO!) democratically elected representatives of 3 (THREE) thousand (just 3, THREEm zeros after the first number 3) self-determining people, were enough to scare the poop out of him, and make him turn and run away like the coward he is from hosted and catered talks AND the same UN resolutions he always lies about.

    How weak, sniveling and small do you have to be for a representative of 43 million (that's SIX zeros, so what IS there to be afraid of?) to fear the words and even sight of just 2 of 3000? Not to mention the fact that those naughty 3000 VOTED once again to say “NO!” to that 43 million “strong” country. And you know what? Golly gee whiz, no one stopped them... no one sent in a task force to teach those rebels and international law-breakers a lesson, and heck they can even visit countries in South America who are a-gazillion (add as many zeros as you please, ironic that!) percent behind Argentina's “right” to stand on their faces -- and they dare do it with absolute impunity from those so-called supportive countires.

    And how much of a stupid gullible bleating Malvanazi do you have to be to swallow down and praise such sniveling cowardice and weakness like a carton of chunky milk? Oh... Hi, Marcus!

    For the present you cannot even maintain the drains in your capital, with your naval ships that sink while at moorings, and your air-force is equipped with bankrupt Spain's discards. “They will then take it” requires that will you need competency and capability of which you have neither. At the rate Argentina is deteriorating you had better hope the UK has a navy, to come and rescue you from the acquired resurgent military capabilities of the Islanders.

    There's an old idiom that fits this....


    Reminds me of that Argentina Air Force radar operative challenging an aircraft flying over the Falklands and demand that they leave Argentine airspace and threatening to launch Argentina fighter aircraft if they didn't...

    “Send them up, I'll wait!”

    The biggest laugh of all is that Argentina simply does not know when they are acting like a complete prat.

    CFK prattled on at the G20 meeting in Russia for nearly an hour on Argentina progresses in democracy, not even noticing that no-one else was listening and they were busily using their I-Pads to keep themselves amused. After that complete waste of time, I don't believe there is any doubt amongst the other leaders that Argentina has to be removed from the G20 - not only because they have failed financially to meet the criteria for being a member - but primarily because they elect complete imbeciles to be their leaders.

    As the others have pointed out, there is no doubt that the ICJ would rule in favour of the Islanders...

    @2/5/24/32/45 et al, chest-beating and rejoinder aside, Argentina's claims of territorial integrity w.r.t. the questions of the Falkland Islands are fallacy and without merit

    Argentine's claims could never succeed in the free court of the UN ICJ where the merit of their claims cannot be substantiated by the test of evidence

    The UN principle and concept of Territorial Integrity & National Unity & disruption applies the the borders of member states and overseas territories as extant on 24th October 1945 when the UN Treaty came into force; many of these member states possess overseas territories and the treaty applies equally to these in terms of sovereign territorial integrity

    Applying the principle of Territorial Integrity to the Question of the Falkland Islands would refer to the succession of the Falklands Islands from British sovereignty & its effect on British territorial integrity and British national unity

    The fact is Argentine has never possessed any right of territorial integrity and the pretensions of the Republic of Argentina regarding the British territories of Falkland Islands, South Sandwich Islands, South Georgia, the South Orkneys, South Shetlands, Graham Land and Coats Land

    Argentina's encroachments and pretended acts of sovereignty in or relative to any of those territories are, under international law, illegal and invalid and always have been

    The fact is the only country with territorial integrity and national unity rights regarding the Falkland Islands and its one-time dependencies is Great Britain

    Indeed, the UN and its members explicitly upheld British de facto and de jure territorial integrity on the Question of the Falkland Islands, when the UN Security Council issued Resolution 502 determined that there existed a breach of the peace in the region of the Falkland Islands and demanded an an immediate withdrawal of all Argentine forces from the Falkland Islands

    You possess a somewhat odd attitude towards immigrant populations over indigenous people when your own Argentinian country is a nation of immigrants who exterminated the indigenous people. You yourself must be from European stock.

    You appear also ignorant of the fact that recent arrivals to a country are frequent amongst the most patriotic of people. Many (not all of course) immigrants and their families from Pakistan, Poland and elsewhere, who have settled in Britain, are immensely loyal towards their new country. They are best able to appreciate Britain’s traditions of liberty, freedom and parliamentary democracy in comparison to the sadder experience of their own countries.

    A good example would be Somalian born but now British Olympic gold medal winner Mo Farah, who is famously loyal and patriotic towards the country which has offered him a welcome, and freedom and opportunities unavailable in the country of his birth.

    Hector Timermans father; Jacob Timerman must be turning in his grave at his sons hysterical antics. Is this any way for a country’s Foreign minister to behave? Some of his claims are blatant lies. There was no usurpation in 1833. The islands of South Georgia and the South Shetlands have been British since the 1770’s. Its absurd for Argentina to falsely claim they were stolen from Argentina.

    Jacobo was a man of honour, dignity and immensely brave. He was a journalist of the highest traditions who possessed enormous respect for Britain and its institutions like the BBC.

    His son however brings nothing but shame and ridicule upon himself, family name and country.

    The facts about the “discovery” of the islands are largely ignored by the Argentine, either due to convenient nationalism or to plain ignorance. However, that the British and the French, and even the Portuguese had 'sighted' the islands in the late 16th century is a well known, historical fact. While seamen and seal hunters of various nationalities used the islands as a safeport during this period and later, it was probably the Brits who made their presence on the islands more than just a vague claim, and named the islands after Lord Falkland. Then the Brits were ousted by the Spaniards who, if not mistaken, ceded the islands to the French as a war settlement...thus the name Malvines....then the Brits took the islands back. Through all this, at no point did the 'then' provinces which are Argentine 'today', actively participate militarily in securing the islands for themselves, other than an attempt in the early 19th century (shortly after gaining independence from Spain), to establish a colony, which did not succeed. In 1832 the Brits decided it was time to take the islands back and that's how it's remained until today, 181 years later. The fact that the “kelpers” recently chose to remain under British rule, and not that of Argentina, simply demonstrates their good sense....and the reason why Argentine presidents , every now and again, rear their ugly heads and claim that the islands belong to Argentina, and try to force the issue through diplomatic channels, is because first, they know they'd get their asses whipped if they tried any other way, and two, to distract the Argentine population from the utter chaos they have created internally. And stupid claims that the situation will be different in 30 or 40 years, and that the Brits will be 'obliged' to 'return' the islands, is just a load of b.s., because in 30 or 40 years from now, the threats to world peace (already in the making) will make the Argies claim insignificant...

    @59: ”And stupid claims that the situation will be different in 30 or 40 years, and that the Brits will be 'obliged' to 'return' the islands, is just a load of b.s., because in 30 or 40 years from now, the threats to world peace (already in the making) will make the Argies claim insignificant...”

    And the biggest threat to world peace in 30-40 years, from the Argentine perspecitve, will be a successful sovereign and independent Falkland Islands, a member of the British Commonwealth, or whatever association with the UK the islanders wish. Forever out of Argentina's reach. They may even have to... (gasp!) talk to them!

    Same old cracked record from Gollum, its just amusing and proves. That Argentina has no powers of persuasion and a dearth of effective arguments. If a diplomat is running a campaign of colonialist ambition one would expect something new instead of repetitive falshoods that has proved useless time and again.
    I don't expect it will receive even an acknowledgement from the FO and I look forward to a yawn of response from Port Stanley. Argentina is bankrupt not only in monetary sense but also in terms of a different approach. The futile campaign of aggression and harrassment helps to maintain Argentina's status as an international pariah.

    The Empire no longer exists, spotty Stevie, because we no longer want it...unlike Spain, or France, our colonies didn't have to fight for freedom. We either returned them peacefully to the indigenous people or granted self determination to those where mass migration had given a new majority.

    The remnants are those territories too small to be independent, or those which still wish for our help against bullying belligerent neighbours.

    I am sorry this doesn't fit with your racist hatred Stevie.

    If you hate colonialism as you should love it is the ONLY Empire that was freely and voluntarily dismantled into working democracies run by the people who live there.

No minimum wage. Workers are a dime a dozen in these places. All the Chinese do is bung some money to the corrupt officials and carry on sucking these countries dry.

    Don't expect anything too soon amigos.

    “UK refusal to sit at a negotiations table is the best evidence that regarding the Malvinas issue, the lion roars, but no longer frightens”.”

    So this explains why Gollum gets a yellow shoe fountain every time he even suspects a British sub in in the South Atlantic (even if it isn't actually there)?

    “It then quotes an editorial from The Times, in 1842”

    A newspaper article is quoted but an actual treaty such as the Southern Arana treaty isn't quoted by Gollum -hmmm wonder why not?

    “The release then lists all the events, supports, conferences, resolutions, historic pamphlets, solidarity groups and efforts displayed by Argentine diplomacy and by Argentine lawmakers in favor of the Malvinas issue during the last twelve months. Plus underlining all the measures dictated under Argentine law to try and prevent the Falklands from developing its own oil and gas industry.”

    The release doesn't appear to indicate whether any of these measures have actually achieved anything.

    There is growing International support for Argentinas position....last I've the UNGA voted in 2008 it removed any reference of a sovereignty dispute being a barrier to self determination in NSGTs. BY A HUGE MARGIN.

    Timmerman is lying to his own people. It's embarrassing to watch.

    If British and Argentine diplomacy is to be compared, I would look at the childish name calling from Timmerman and the professional and dignified answers from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

    Part – The Second

    It then quotes an editorial from The Times, in 1842, when the Argentine representative in London apparently made a new request to hold talks on the Malvinas issue: “We don't know what to admire most, if the insolence from the South American or the resignation from Her Majesty's minister who didn't kick him down the stairs”. STUPID COMMENT - NO 2

    The release then lists all the events, supports, conferences, resolutions, historic pamphlets, solidarity groups and efforts displayed by Argentine diplomacy and by Argentine lawmakers in favor of the Malvinas issue during the last twelve months. – JOKE No 2

    Plus underlining all the measures dictated under Argentine law to try and prevent the Falklands from developing its own oil and gas industry. – JOKE No 3

    This was completed with the creation of a Secretariat dedicated exclusively to the Malvinas issue, -

    responsible for coordination of all efforts to peacefully recover the Islands, in accordance to the Argentine constitution through dialogue and bilateral negotiations between Argentina and the UK, - RANK STUPIDITY No 2

    and it could be added, to he headed by former Senator Daniel Filmus who lost his bench in the October mid-term election. – RANK STUPIDITY No 3
    Finally to the verbal and military threats from the colonial power – LIE No 15

    Argentina will continue demanding the compliance with International Law and UN resolutions, - LIE No 16
    “thus showing that the UK refusal to sit at a negotiations table is the best evidence that regarding the Malvinas issue, - LIE No 17

    the lion roars, but no longer frightens”. – JOKE No 6

    According to my count the article specified by Mercopress above contains:-

    LIES 17
    JOKES 6

    All of which must be a record for an article less than 500 words long!

    120. The Rg population is not gullible they are uneducated and nationalistic. They are indoctrinated to hate the USA and UK from birth. So this kind of malarkey panders to the masses and is ignored everywhere else.
    They know how foolish and childish they appear to the Int'l community but that's not where this is directed so they don't care.

    Their stupidity has gotten them into a lot of trouble though and you can only poke a Lion too many time before he swipes back.

    Are you retarded or on a wind up?

    In your 2000 year time frame, China has invaded the sovereign territory of Vietnam at least 15 times alone. That is before we count the numerous territorial battles with Russia, India, Japan, Korea, Tibet etc.

    And because you are quite happy to include UNSC backed actions, there a multiple occasions when China has supported both militarily and financially.

    Seems like your new mates aren't as friendly as you claim.

    You see military action as a bad thing Stevie. Your impotence in stopping the genocide in Bosnia, your tacit support of Nazi Germany, your failure to be involved in any conflict that doesn't involve massacring unarmed Amerindians.

    @59 Correction. The Spanish didn't cede the Islands to the French. When the French “settled” the Islands had already been British for 74 years. The French SOLD their settlement to the Spanish. Then the Spanish tried to oust the British. That attempt lasted about 6 months. They didn't like Britain's offer to give them a full-scale war in exchange.
    @70 And which of those commenting are in SA? Do you have figures? Are you concerned that the Falkland Islanders seem to have worldwide support? This must be a first. Argieland (not known to have told the truth at any time since 1920) has worldwide and overwhelming support for its claim to the Falkland Islands. At the same time, Britain doesn't seem to wander around the world “claiming” the Falkland Islands. There's a principle known as Occam's Razor. The simplest explanation is usually the correct one. Argieland misses NO opportunity to trumpet its “claim” and claim support. Britain says little except to tell the Falklanders that they will be defended. Why is it that it is invariably argies that “announce” that x country supports them?
    @84 At last we're getting to the roots of the monomania. There IS a place for a British military base in the South Atlantic. It's called the Falkland Islands. There are “outposts” at South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. South America is indeed a geographical area. North America is also a geographical area. But it has 23 countries in it! By any intelligent definition, the Islands are NOT South American. They are Islands in the Atlantic. But it's nice to hear that the Islanders won't have to talk to you. EVER. So why don't you shut up?
    @93 So you're a “traveller”. We have such scum here as well. They get “moved on”. Because they are criminals.
    @120 We may have made an error. In its efforts to appear squeaky clean, argieland needed to be seen as “multicultural”. How better than to appoint a foreigner as “foreign minister”? So what if he's a dozy dimwit?

    Well, I did my best and would comment as follows.

    The piece does its best to garner together all the nationalistic elements seen in the recent past under the malignant banner that is Roca. Everything is there:
    Vaca Muerta
    Anti USA feelings
    Bravado about Chile
    Rabid sentiments against the indigenous Indians who suffered under Roca though this is very much downplayed
    And of course Roca’s defeat was not at the hands of the indigenous Indians but by the dastardly Indians from Chile and it was they that did it for the “Tehuelches” aka Mapuche, so Roca was a good guy after all.

    But for me the sting is in the tail! If things had been left at the Black River whole areas that were “ownerless” were now (and to some of the claim, always had been) Argentine. Miraculous event, I am surprised that it is not Saint Roca. :o)

    The argies could even, as a result of this “new” occupation (that kills the claim it was always Argentine) also claim Antarctic territory AND the islands in the South Atlantic.

    Good colonialist and saint then: Roca.

    But why an editorial in La Nacion and why now?

    I always amazes me just how many wars the Chinese fought.

    The Qin dynasty wars themselves ran riot over the whole of China, killing millions in the process of creating a coherent 'nation' - hence Qin's need for the Terracotta Army!
    For the last 2,000 years, the screwing down of the populations of China has been the central feature. The massed battles of the regional warlords are reprised in Akira Kurosawa's Ran - itself a reprise of Hamlet; but the massive killings were just part of Chinese life since they entered what today we call civilization. That's why Mao Zedong's slaughters passed without more comment - the land had been saturated in the blood of many centuries, and the peoples have bee - for millenia - conditioned to it.

    The funniest thing of all is that back when Argentina declared independence from Spain, they actually asked to JOIN Great Britain.

    They wanted the British to station troops and ships in their country, to protect them from Spain. To stop Spain trying to recover their empire. Only Britain already had Spain as an ally in the war against Napoleon, so they could not do anything that upset their new Spanish friends.

    The United Provinces actually wanted to join the British Empire. They honestly believed that their rights would be better served within the British Empire, as protection against their old masters.

    Not surprising really. They had masses of trade with Great Britain. Lots of British merchants lived in the United Provinces and they were very wealthy people. The United Provinces saw it as a way of getting rich quick. They probably reasoned that the British would forget the Baring debt, build even more trade and expand the country.

    In some ways, I suspect that a lot of the Argentine hostility comes from this 'unrequited love'. That the Argentines still admire Britain more than they do Spain, but would be embarrassed to admit this.

    In truth, the Argentines admired the British Empire, admired the fact that Britain was the strongest nation and wanted to be a part of the Empire family.

    There are many nations that would love to join the Commonwealth. I suspect that the United States would like to be a part of it too, but they can never throw off the fact that they split away in 1776. Sure the Americans make out that they hated the Red Coats and the 'tyrannical government' of King George. But in truth, all the Americans wanted was recognition and a say in the way the Empire was run. Like a child asserting their individuality, they had to 'leave home' to become independent.

    So Argentina still regrets that they never joined the Empire, because if they had, then the Falklands might have been protected BY them, but still be independent OF them.

    Every time i try to debate about this case in this foum, i otfen find some people, including some of our misserable sepoys, who accuse us of believing false arguments since we are children, indoctrinated by our official history. I must recognize that i feel really ashamed when i read that kind of comments, because they are too pathetic.
    It's not new in absolut the fact that both countries tell just what is convenient for them before international scenarios. The malvinas case, is a very complicated cause, which has strong and weak aspects for both countries, in fact, i have discussed in this forum a lot about the historic aspects of this conflict, beside, i agree on a proposal of dialogue between both nations, including with the lawmakers from the islands, but what really annoys me, is their hypocritical complaint, in relation to the lack of dialogue with arg., i say it's hypocritcal because every time they ask for a dialogue, they manifest that they are disposed to talk about different issues, but not about the sovereignty, which is the main problem, so, they dont want a dialogue, what they want is argentina's submission.
    C. f. k. was very clear when she read before the u. n., in june of 2012, the secret proposal of 1974 discussed between both nations, which was based on a shared sovereignty, this fact destroys the distorted interpretation that the lawmakers from the islands always do, about argentina's posture.
    In my opinion, i think that the only one way to finish with this humbled situation for arg., is to take the case to the arbitration, as it was suggested by arg. in 1884 and 1888, but rejected by the u. k., or as it was manifested by britain in 1947, in relation to the case of the dependencies from the islands.
    After that year, neather arg., nor the u. k. proposed again to take the question to the arbitration, perhaps both aren't sure of getting a positive result, if the cause is discussed at the court.

    the UK offered talks at the ICJ three times in 1947 ,1955 and 1956 Argentina refused, whatever the 1974 proposal was invalidated with the invasion of the islands. Argentina has one agenda only sovereignty, here`s political reality for Argentina they invaded the islands stripped them of their sovereignty, why would they now consent to negotiate that sovereignty with the people who denied them theirs?” if one wishes to play the game Argentina need to accept the same risks of win and lose, at present Argentina say`s I will only play if I win! the UK does not need to accept such condition, no one will accept that talks must be decided in favour of Argentina before talks begin, as sovereignty is the only issue on the Argentine agenda there is nothing to discuss. Argentina needs to put on the table why its worth the British to talk to them.

    Now, there once was a chance, a small chance, but a chance nonetheless, that the Falkland Islanders would be ok with argentine rule, they would be happy to be ruled from BA instead of the UK.

    But guess what Axel me dear? Guess what happened then? You right royally f**ked it up didn't ya? In 1982 you gave the Islanders, you gave the WHOLE WORLD a look at what being ruled by argentina looked like, and guess what? The Islanders didn't like it. THEY didn't like it and they didn't want it, If there was only a small chance of winning them over before 1982, you made dead sure, that after 1982, there was no chance at all. EVER.

    And you know what else? We here in the UK saw what you did, and heard the stories of what you did and now WE here in the UK will make absol-f**king-utely sure that you don't get your sticky little mitts on them.

    You may think that it's the “argentinian people” and the “honour of argentina” that has been wronged, but guess what?, that's a sh*t sandwich you'll have to take a bite from, all of you.
    And you know what else? you did it all to yourselves as well. The only people you can blame for the way things are now, is you. So now you will have to f**k off because here in the UK? we say, what the Falkland Islanders want, that's what we want as well. So without their say so, you can go and skip for your “Honour” and for the Falklands as well.

The terrible treatment the innocent and naive (and basically illiterate) conscripts, from the northern provinces of Chaco and Corrientes, got from their superiors. Staking out in the freezing rain for example!!! On their trip back to the mainland the officers were made to scrub the decks whilst the conscripts got first class treatment. On reaching the mainland they were confined to barracks for a brain washing for two weeks so they would never repeat what happened to them. Doubtful the islanders will forget this either!!!

    The policy raised by CFK was never official government policy. This was a discussion document produced by civil servants and diplomats. This would almost certainly have been rejected by the islanders. In 1965 the then Labour Foreign Secretary of State; Micheal Stewart made it absolutely clear in a statement to parliament that in any negotiation with Argentina the wishes of the islanders would be paramunt. This has remained government policy ever since.

    The gvernment has made it clear also that the UK government has no doubts about British sovereignty over the islands. Therefore there can and will be no discussion over sovereignty until the islanders wish it.

    the UK government spent 17 years in discussion with Argentina mainly because it was believed that by talking with Argentina there would be no invasion. Talking was believed to be cheaper than keeping sufficient armed forces in the area to deter any invasion attempt. This policy clearly failed.

    The UK is therefore forced to defend the islands .

    Given that Argentina sees talks as simply a discussion on how Britain will hand the islands over to Argentina, what is the point of any negotiations?

    You try and portray that you have studied the Falklands case deeper than anyone else, and that you can “lecture” your findings as fact...the summary of your “lecture” is that “both sides have weak and strong aspects”.

    Your “in-depth analysis” is fundamentally flawed, and that continuing to repeat it just makes you look ridiculous.

    The world has moved on since 1833, when, as per historical facts on both sides...58 people were evicted from the Falklands. All of those (54) forced to leave (without a shot being fired) had been on the islands for 6 weeks and had already mutineed, murdered and raped.

    That is the extent of the “Argentine claim”. Fundamentally weak.

    The Falkland islanders claim based on 180 years of unbroken habitation, the UN Charter and numerous UN resolution showing that their interests are paramount is fundamentally strong. THERE IS NO BRITISH CLAIM.

    However, as you identify in 1974, the was a (NON SECRET) proposal put to the islanders around shared sovereignty.


    So Britain proved beyond any reasonable doubt that it met the UN resolutions to have dialogue with Argentina to satisfy Argentinas claim, and that the interests of the islanders were paramount AND that the UN Charter that all people have the right to self determination was respected.

    You view that this somehow considered Argentinas mythical 1833 claim valid is ludicrous. Britain actively pursued a decolonization of 1/3 the surface of the world, and 1/4 the population. Wherever possible self-determination was paramount and near all are thriving democracies.

    Britain negotiated with Argentina despite their ludicrous claims...not because of them...simply Because Britain no more wants a territory in the South Atlantic than anywhere else.

    However, because the islanders wish to remain British, so it will stay. Until they chose otherwise. in 180 years Argentina has convinced one islander (Betts), 1500 to go.

    @178... “Sepoys” People adverting that Argentina actually comply with the UN Resolutions they lie about every day? Such a good little tan shirted Malvinazi-light you are.

    And the alleged “secret” document violated 2065 as much as your line of fascist governments have with respect to the islands. The difference is the UK listened the Islanders as they were supped to while the Junta you pretend to hate but celebrate on your 2-peso coin and all the subsequent governments have either ignored or ran like cowards from taking the Islanders interests into account.

    What a lie your life must be. Pretending to do research and cherry picking only select facts and even words in more complete and contex-filled sentences. Facing people who like you can “just-google-it” and see how your lies are so easily provable. You said you are a teacher in a previous post as I recall. Do you lie awake in fear that your students will discover what a fraud you are?

    But today and tomorrow the Islands will exercise the right that you could never take from them. Self-deterermination is locked down in favor of the Islanders and your lies to the contrary cannot change that your try to get it overturned in a back alley vote failed because the civilized world and a good part of the middle east who explicitly saw what it meant for other conflicts saw through it. You can either talk to them as partners or forever be looked on as embittered neonozis wanting your Poland and Czechoslovakia. So put your money in your mouth when you pretend to want to have talks with the islanders as you have in other posts and PUBLICLY call for talks with the ISLANDERS. We all know you're too much of a coward to do it. But do prove us wrong. We may even help you with asylum when you lose your job for being a ... sepoy.

    No, I didn't. I can remember reading “Storming the Falklands” by an ex member of 2 Para who took part in the Falklands war. In this book ( which is well worth a read, if you can get hold of it ) he describes his homecoming and lack of understanding and help that he received regarding the PTSD he suffered.

    He also goes on a journey to Buenos Aires to return a Trumpet he took from an Argentine POW. There, talking to the man, he is told about the harshness of their own officers toward the young conscripts.

    He also quotes from a book by Edgardo Esteban perhaps you have heard of it? read it? Edgardo describes how, as conscripts, they were bullied by their own officers, humiliated in front of their own men and then shunned by their families / country when they returned. I would like to read that one as well but I do not think it is available in English.

    195 toooldtodieyoung . Haven't read the book. The best book on that war is probably the one written by Max Hastings whose son, Harry is living here and running tourism of the country for foreigners. He doesn't mention the harsh treatment meted out to the conscripts. I have spoken to some so I have heard it first hand and we have one conscript from our own community who has spoken openly about it.

    Quite a number of veterans, especially the ones flying the Harriers, have come back and met their counterparts and become friends.

    Suicides amongst the conscripts has been very high and it is calculated that more have died from suicide than in the fighting on the islands.

    The ex-member of 2 Para should have gone to The Royal British Legion and they would have made sure he was treated for his PTSD. This is probably the largest charity organization in the UK and they handle all these issues not only for the vets but for their families as well.

    I understand that for many of you, the invasion ordered by the criminal and idiot junta to the islands in 1982 is your best excuse to reject the negotiations, however, accept it or not, even after that unforgiven fact, the u. n. has always continued to call both nations to resume the negotiations and find a peaceful solution. Beside, the so called self determination that you love talking about, has never been applied for this cause, not even after the referendum, as it was for other colonial situations, in fact, a few days before that popular consultation, the president from the decolonization committe explained the reasons why self determination is not applicable for this case. On the other hand, this cause has always ben considered like a special case since 1965.
    If after all these objetive facts, you prefer insisting on defending self determination for the islanders, you have right to do it, but reality is much more different than the usuall mischievous lectures of many of you.
    Respecting the offers of arbitration, the u. k. just offered to submit the cases of the dependencies of the islands to an arbitration, but never the malvinas.
    If the sovereignty of the islands would be shared by both countries, neather arg. would be submitted to the will of the u. k., nor viceversa, actualy it would be a fair solution because it would respect the wish of the islanders of remaining under british government, and argentina's sovereign rights.
    You all know perfectly that if the u. k. didn't have right to veto at the u. n., it would never be able to do what it has always done with this cause.
    On the other hand, the historic aspects of this conflict, are much more complicated than tipicall too partial analysis of many of you, i have explained them in planty of opportunities.

    Tony Banks actually received help from a charity called “Combat Stress” in the end. He tells us that :-

    “Estimates of the total number of veteran suicides vary. But it is likely that around 500 Argentinians and 300 British ex servicemen have taken their own lives since 1982. Those figures do not include those who have died of drink, drugs or poverty related problems. It is dreadful to think that after all these years - three decades - men from both sides are still suffering and dying as a direct result of the conflict”

    Edgardo Esteban again :- “The main problem stems from the fact that the Argentine Army never acknowledged its errors and blamed the conscripts for the defeat. Argentinian society, whcih originally supported the invasion, abandoned us and linked us to the military dicatorship. When the conflict ended , there was no help.”

    So there you are Tim, there is still much suffering, even in victory. My only hope is that for the Argetinians who fought, get the juctice that they so far have never had. And here in the UK, we better understand and encourage the troops to stand up and say “I have a problem” otherwise, there will be lots and lots more suffering from the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    This is echoed by other zombies in your 'Army of Darkness'.

    For a start, vetoes have nothing to do with your “Malvinas” ( whatever they are) claims.

    Apparently, according the Islands' inhabitants and owners:
    They are not yours.
    You have never possessed them.
    No Argies have any history of living there as a culture.
    Nobody wants you there

    and there is no reason for them to speak to you about giving you either full or partial control over the Islands that are their homes and livelihood, owned 100% by them, which they are free to do with 100% as they please, simply because you feel they should be yours.

    However, I don't know why you are asking us or the UK.

    It is clear you understand very little !there was absolutely no good reason for the invasion ( just Argentine stupidity and brinkmanship) and I support open talks with no preconceived ideas to what the out come will be, as for decolonisation only the people who are colonised have the right to determine what political status they wish to be, neither the UK or Argentina are the colonised. “to resume the negotiations and find a peaceful solution.” Yes it does but you missed the important part “taken into account the wishes of the islanders which is ”paramount” do you understand what the word means? it means the islanders interest are more important than Argentina`s or the UK interests in this case. the UN recognises the UK as the legitimate authority over the islands, all it requires is for Argentina to go to court and prove it is the legitimate authority, you don`t need the UK there you have all the evidence the UN will declare the British presence on the islands illegal and talks on sovereignty can start the following week, there is a world map in the Vatican its dated around the early 1700s it show`s the islands and named as the Falkland's Islands were internationally known then and this was 120 years before the state of Argentina existed 70 years before Spain was given the French settlement on the Falkland Islands. Self determination is a core principle of the UN and people who believe in it will certainly stand by it and Argentina signed it when the joined in 1945, it is now for them to persuade the UN why its not legal in relation to the islands and have it redefined to accommodate Argentina`s ambition. No UN official has stated the Falkland islanders have no right to self determination, they have said the wishes of the islanders are paramount, The UN will not support a change in the status of the islands without the islanders agreement to it.

    @197: You're REALLY starting to creeping us out. How many times does a girl have to say no for you to get it through your thick skull that she's not only that into you, but not into you at ALL!

    All resolutions and charter and points of law make it clear that she gets to chose who to date and who to be friends with.

    Your not-so-“secret” deal when ran against her got a NO from her. Her big brother listened to her and respects her. You DON'T. You proved THAT in 1982 when you raped her and beat her up. Remember that? The whole WORLD told you NO! And you got the crap beaten out of you, and though you proudly reminisce that day, you insist that you weren't “yourself” so it's ok for you to keep stalking her.

    In 2008 the world made it clear. EVERY GIRL IN TOWN CAN SAY NO and it's a fundament right to say no. They don't have a “right to shut up” as you insist. Stop lying about it.

    You have a C24 filled with like-minded creeps who, like you, want to hold onto girls even when they say no to them after they ask them (Tokelau comes to mind) when they are just fine with the status quo or find the alternative well.. like 1982 which you insist we forget. We see through them.

    You have neighbors who are glued to you until continental drift gives them relief from your obsession who have to pander to you, because you are, frankly, unstable. Really really unstable.

    But guess what. They quietly and politely smile at her, are respectful to her, and she is nice back. Must drive you crazy, eh?

    But she said no to you. And no means no. What part of “NO” don't you understand. Two letters in alphabetical order that mean the same thing in both english and spanish. There are no excuses for getting it wrong.

    There are prisons FILLED with people who think like you. And no one bought their story either.

    No. Means. No. And yes. she gets to say it. And her opinion is the ONLY one that matters.

    GFace #204,
    a succinct and powerful argument using the analogy that even trolls might understand.

    Children are brought up from early childhood to 'Just say “No!”' to predatory adults.
    Such adults are imprisoned for actual illegalities; many are placed in psychiatric hospital - even in solitary confinement to protect them from other defective inmates.
    They are shunned by normal people, forever 'Listed' by their national and local administrative centres.

    It is unfair to blame totally the Argentinian conscript for 1982, but it is absolutely fair to treat the leaders, both military and political, even today - especially today - as akin to rapists.
    Raping a nation, a community, is one step up from raping the individual people.

    If only the Argentinian Malvinistas and trolls could open their minds
    and see themselves as 'rapists',
    they might get some insight into the way they are viewed in the Islands and in the world at large.

And I'm sure we'll get a ”the b*tch (and her bro) were leading us on,“ i.e., the oooohhhh ”secret“ not so secret memo that Axel talks about. He keeps saying the same lies over and over again when we know the facts to the contrary. I'm sure he STILL doesn't get it? ”Who me/us? But we looooooove her (except when she says no).“ And of course he and the rest will lie about how they just want to ”talk“ but NEVER with the the Islanders ”We just want to talk to her brother, but not her... since we know she'll say no and when she's in the room we know that her brother won't ignore her.” And of course they won't dare step into court, the ICJ, since his record is there for all to see. Such pathetic and sick Malvanazis, I don't care how thoughtful Axel pretends to be he's just another one of them.

    The heart of the matter is Argentina's usurpation of Martin Garcia Island- or not?

    Phillipe, sorry, haven't caught on to your comment... what has the fact that Martin Garcia Island belongs to Argentina (via Treaty signed with Uruguay in 1973) got to do with their unfounded claim to the Falklands ?

    Just that Argentina believes that everything that they want belongs to them.
    Other dastardly peoples have taken it off them.
    Wonder that they haven't claimed the Moon.
    After all, it shines on Argentina, it must be theirs! lol lol lol.

    “e president from the decolonization committe explained the reasons why self determination is not applicable for this case.”

    So this person overules Ban Ki Moon who insists that all Non self governing territories have the right to determine their own futures?

    I've got news for you axel-the decolonisation committees remit is and always has been to promote independence of those territories from their former colonisers and no way is the decolonialisation commitee the ultimate authority in the UN.

    You need to study the structure of the UN a bit more chay.

    “Beside, the so called self determination that you love talking about, has never been applied for this cause, not even after the referendum, as it was for other colonial situations,”


    Can you explain why in 2008 the UN overuled Argentine and Spanish efforts to rule out self determination for NSGTs?

    This proves what you have said above is a complete untruth.

    Please take note:
    1. Isolde is always right
    2. Treaties signed with guns pointed against you, are just scraps of paper!

    I have never justified the invasion of 1982, in fact, many people in this forum know perfectly what i think about it.
    In relation to self det., i just recommend you to have a look to all the u. n.'s resolutions, and you'll see that it was applied for different colonial situations, but never for this cause. In fact, i recommend you also to read the statements of all the lawmakers from the islands before the u. n., especially norma edward's of june 24th of 2010, where she complains about the fact that this cause has always been considered like a special case at the decolonization committee, you can find her statement in the news archive of this website. On the other hand, haven't you wondered yet why even after the result of the referendum, nothing has changed at the u. n., in refference to this cause?, i have, and maybe you all should do the same.
    In relation to the idea of submitting the case to an arbitration, you all already know what i think about it, in fact, read my comment 197 again. In my opinion i think that you all should take into account the objetive facts that i mention in that comment, about the idea of an arbitration, if you want to make a serious analysis of this conflict.
    Respecting the historic arguments of arg., they are too long to explain them here, but i'll just tell you that after having investigated for 4 years, i have the conclusion that both countries have rights over the islands in 1833 (discovery and papal bulls are very weak arguments).
    In the case of the u. k., it's rights were based on a secret article included in the nootka sound convention of 1790, and in the case of arg., it's rights were derived of the sucession of states, that's why, the u. k. should have negotiated a peaceful solution with arg., or maybe share the sovereignty of the islands, instead of depriving our country as it did in 1833, there is much more to say about this conflict.

    Please tell me what ”investigate“ means in Spanish and English?

    Like you, Snr. Cedron seems to think he knows, but he does not seem to use the word correctly, either.

    Tell me, do you research and gather evidence systematically, and try to compare conflicting evidence from different sources to come to an objective conclusion?
    Do you then compile a Bibliography and a list of links so that readers and investigators following you can understand your reasoning and confirm your findings?

    Wouldn't an Investigator and an Academic like yourself, do that??

    Or do you prefer to portray yourself as an ”Intellectual Thinker”, whatever that would be?

    the Nookta agreement was in 1790 between the UK and Spain, 30 years before the state of Argentina existed, what equal legitimate claim could the UP, Rio del Plata have 30 years later? the referendum has nothing to do with the UN other than the inhabitants have expressed their wish to remain British and that the articles of the UN Charter were honoured by the British, the decolonizing committee have not (and legally can`t) proclaim it was illegal, the day to day life continues in the islands that has the fastest expanding GDP anywhere in Latin America, Argentina`s historical claim is extremely weak. it is politically naïve of Argentines to demand talks where the outcome has to be in Argentina favour before talks begin, no one will negotiates from this position, Argentina had a golden opportunity to distance themselves from the Junta`s invasion and start afresh but your successive democratic governments proved to be no less aggressive than the Junta the results are the reality the islanders will never now accept any notion of sharing the islands with Argentina, the other option is Argentina can hope and pray the UK will turn their backs on the islands and walk away. Argentines need to learn and make friends with the islanders and in time you might be able to come to some agreement with them, alternatively you can invaded again! you know what the results will be , the only other option is the ICJ Argentina refuses to use it, it is going to be a very long time before Argentina is accepted as friend.

    @216: NO Means NO you skeevy little stalker. End. Of. Story. Game. Over.

    The vote you Malvanazis lost in 2008 was for ALL NGSTs and was brought up when no “special” cases were on the agenda specifically to get your Poland and Spain's Czechoslovakia dehumanized so you could do whatever you wanted to them. The C24 ignores it as much as you do to their peril. No one takes them seriously wrt the Falkands except for ever hopeful fascists like you. If there was a special case why then did your people goose-step into they ICJ to stop it? Because they have no case in the 21st century where self-determination is no longer trumped by cold war realpolitik or petty fascists like you needing validation.

    All resolutions that you and your fellow fascists lie about incessantly take the islanders interests into account. There is only one country that does that in this dispute, and it isn't Argentina. The UN has said all along they had that right. The world will never make the mistake of Munich or Yalta again and give free people to lying thugs like you ever again.

    Stop lying to us and most importantly stop lying to yourself.
