    One should not have to justify ones existence to south America,

    if the UN got of its lazy backside and told Argentina to grow up or sanctions would be applied to them for their threatening , bullying behaviour then perhaps CFK might, just might see the light..

    There is no light where she has her head! Must be very difficult to walk like that.

    In El Salvador he will be very well received as the people who think in that country certainly are very pro-British.

    And on what basis are the Falkland Islands still on the UN's “decolonisation” list? Subjected to the whims of latinos who will continue to rabbit lies. And what about Gibraltar? Incompetent spain doesn't dare go to court. The Government of Gibraltar has challenged spain more than once. It must be time for the United Kingdom to tell the UN that it will no longer accept British Overseas Territories being included on the “decolonisation” list. The UK must declare all British Overseas Territories to be associated countries and no longer subject to UN trusteeship. Especially as the UN makes no effort to protect certain countries from the activities of nearby pariah and rogue states such as spain and argieland.

    It's easy to see why South American countries disapprove of the Falklands' political history. They have missed the regional glories of civil wars, military coups, putsches, death squads, expropriation, disappearances etc...
    What a boring existence.

    All true and the fact that the Falklands are not in debt and can run their economy properly means they will never be accepted by South America.

    The FI people are richer, per capita, than anyone in SA. Lowest crime rate too.
    I suggest that SA should be governed by the FI until they are ready to do it independently.
