    The U.S. don't care enough about her to want her removed. Paranoid much.

    CFK should be far more worried about Argentines turning on her and dispatching her.

    Elaine of course that is her real concern but she must plant that seed and see where it grows, if at all.

    The USA would not waste a bullet let alone any other resource on the likes of her. Can anyone here imagine their elected leaders talking the way she does in speeches......like them or not? She is a complete and perfect moron and any of her citizens who believe a single word she says are even worse........pure simpletons.

    Didn't some twat, on here, recently say that the IS/ISIL/ISIS threats against la presidente were just a “misunderstanding”. Some “misunderstanding” when she refers to them herself. Actually, there's a chance here. The IS could indulge in some really radical neck surgery. There would be a brief pause whilst half the world stood up to applaud. There might be a worldwide petition for her head to be impaled on a stake in a suitable position. How about in front of the Indec building? But I don't think she should be the only one. Not fair for her to be alone. How about the heads of Kickitoff and Gollum on either side? And now she's as paranoid as MADurine in Venezuela.

    President Cristina's statement about an American threat is actually valid, as her government's heavy handed manipulation of one of the worlds most beloved companies being forced to sell its sandwiches below their cost of production.

    In order to mislead the IMF, the famous “Big Mac” index was manipulated by the Argentine government which caused enormous losses to the McDonalds Corporation along with ridiculous employment obligations which has caused continuous losses for nearly the past decade.

    Any one who understands the Yankee mindset will understand exactly why that an attack against this iconic corporation with the “Golden Arches” would result in orders for her elimination with extreme prejudice.
    _________________________________________________

    BUENOS AIRES–USA Today 30Sep14 President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has said that her government was applying the “socialist Peronist formula: an abandoned company taken over by the working class,” in reference to last week’s occupation of restaurants belonging to the U.S. fast food giant, the McDonalds Corporation.

    “It’s the government new policy. Any company that is abandoned will be taken over by the working class with the support of the revolutionary Peronist government. Let it be known,” Cristina Fernández de Kirchner said during a cabinet meeting aired Monday on state television channel.

    The Argentinian government Saturday announced the “temporary” occupation of the McDonalds restaurants as well as the resumption of servying the public once “operational restrictions” are done away with.

    The McDonalds Corporation reported Monday from its U.S. headquarters in Chicago that it had left Argentina due to measures imposed by Fernández's government, economic uncertainty, employment laws and supply interruptions

    For almost three years it was forced to sell over two-thirds of its products at prices determined by the government which led to a huge increase in the costs of production and steady operational losses.

    You claim to live in Argentina, but perhaps you have a poor access to a local McDonalds. Am I correct?
    Last Friday, with as little publicity possible, all corporate owned restaurants were closed and on Monday re-opened with a small advisory that they were under operation by the court.
    Suppliers of bread, meat, etc... we're never controlled by the McDonalds Corporation and operations are being handled somewhat normally. The use of the McDonalds trademark, facilities and operations is being vigorously protested by the Americans.

    You never know. I can tell you for sure that the corporate media wants her out, that's not paranoia, you just have to read the two most powerful papers here. They don't bother to hide their intentions. Politics in latin america are a lot more complicated than you might think. The media in these countries tend to be monopolistic, and many times (if not most) they were the real power not the politicians. I know it sounds crazy to you but do your own research if you like, you'll find that they often were the voice and propaganda for dictators that get in power and decide on their own to invade and go to war just in an attempt to save themselves.
    If she doesn't get to finish her term it could open a Pandora box in the region. I personally don't want another galtieri.

    She is playing fast and loose with dark history here. Yes, there may have been a time many decades ago when the US in some form would actively involve itself with LatAm leadership successions or power takeovers. Not today though.

    She is just hoping that enough people will remember the old dark days to still be scared by it.

    I agree they have control of a good percentage of media but remember that the ones they own or control like tv publica they barely get 2 percent rating while Lanata working for the media group that wants her out average 20 and sometimes 30 ratings.
    The same with papers, the government control several but altogether don't sell the twentieth part that Grupo Clarin sells alone.
    Lanata like his colleagues working for the kirchnerite they are all fighting a war on the money. Sadly both sides lie and lie a lot.
    Believe me 80 percent of the media is not controlled by the government. That's just another of the many exaggerations you get to hear these days from both sides.

    Can't see why anybody in the Middle East would want her dead because she's safely irrelevant.
    Can't see why anybody in the USA would sink to assassination not least because they have more important matters to deal with like defrauding BP for every last cent.
    The UK will be bereft when she finally leaves office and would likely do anything to prolong her rule to ensure the current chaos in Argentina continues for a few more years.

    @43 It is not the same as you well know. The military is virtually non existent now. The best thing the Argentine people could do is get rid of CFK and Kirchnerism altogether. It would show the world they are not supporting her ridiculous policies, they are not stupid and they want to be a developed country. It would encourage investment and inclusion. That would improve the lives of Argentines immeasurably.

    Enzo Maidana:

    Your comment on the “power of the Press” is absolutely ridiculous, the Grupo Clarín is certainly the most read and watched media group in Argentina and was 100% against the re-election of CFK in 2011 and for all the ridiculous government propaganda CFK got 54% of the vote (officially). So where was the “power of the hegemonic Press?”

    The money spent by the government on bribing private media outlets to print their propaganda is OUR money not the kirchnerite's. The money that is spent uselessly on Futbol para Tod@s is also OUR money and should be spent on our schools, our hospitals and providing security on the streets.

    I also hope that CFK finishes her mandate and that the peronists never ever get voted in again!!!!!!!

    CHICAGO-ChicTrib 01Oct14

    A McDonald's Corporation spokesman made a terse short official statement about “current operational difficulties in Argentina.” He stated the the shutdown of restaurants was never meant as a permeant move, and that the McDonald's company never had any intentions to abandon the 236 units in Argentina. “McDonalds is the world's largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries across 35,000 outlets.” He commented. “We are thoughtful that current misunderstandings hopefully will be resolved”and did confirm that current management of the operations in Argentina were being controlled by the courts. He blamed many of the current operational issues due to supply problems, monetary controls and governmental interference.

    It’s unclear what exactly is causing all the supply problems. But a tumbling Argentine peso, the country’s shrinking supply of valuable US dollars, and rising inflation has been making it increasingly difficult to import foreign goods. There’s some suggestion that McDonald’s is having trouble importing the condiment from neighboring Chile, where ketchup is packaged for the entire region. McDonald’s has refused to comment outside of its statements via Twitter.
    But clearly some Argentines see the ketchup conundrum as an outgrowth of president Cristina Kirchner’s currency controls regime, which the government undertook in an attempt to prop up the feeble peso.
    “Not with ketchup, Cristina. Not with ketchup,” a local tweeted yesterday afternoon.

    McDonald’s abandons its $32 Million Cheese Partnership In Argentina
    By InvestBA On October 1, 2014·
    Add Comment · In agribusiness, competitiveness, foreign investment, franchises, us companies

    The cheddar cheese investment was a part of an aggressive move to nationalize ingredient procurement. Due to Argentina’s exorbitant import tariffs, the investment had created a golden opportunity resulting in new job creation in Argentina.

    Arcos Dorados, the world’s largest McDonald’s franchisee, invested in a $32 million Dollar cheese production plant in the Province of Santa Fe. The plant was built in conjunction with Milkaut Argentina, a subsidiary of French agribusiness giant Groupe Soparind-Bongrain.

    The Milkaut plant employed 40 workers and produced 4,000 tons of cheddar cheese for McDonald’s restaurants annually.

    According to Diario Norte, Milkaut, a strategic supplier of McDonald’s in Argentina and other Latin American countries, was reporting enormous losses to to labor unrest, theft, malicious contamination and local corruption. The cheese investment formed a part of McDonald’s aggressive plan to nationalize the production of all ingredients.

    I certainly am not insinuating anything negative about the great McDonald's corporation that has donated untold millions to assist families suffering from cancer. McDonald's provides healthful, delicious and economically priced food fare for a wide range of tastes.
    I'm certainly not getting on their bad side.

    Oh yep read it again, maybe you didn't mean it but as an answer to an invitation it sounded pretty cocky. Well by Latino standards I'm sure it is, but you don't have to know that.
    You say you leave because of the violence? Where were you staying man? Inside a shanty town? Yes there is a problem with armed junkies mainly but remember homicide rates here are lower than American. Yes is a different kind of crime, rarely in America you'll get shot just for riding a nice bike, but crossed fire from guns? I lived in LA, I know what I'm saying. Don't get me wrong I love US best country in the world for

    @69 If you are new to a forum it is probably a good idea to watch for a while to pick up on the tone. A lot of what is said is not to be taken literally but in the context of long term discussions. There are a number of highly offensive people posting both for and against Argentina. By far the nastiest come from Argentines, though one or two anti-anything-Argentine are completely ignored by me. But the majority of people posting have something interesting to say and a perspective to offer.

    A lot of people here know Argentina well and have strong links there. We have lived there and have family and friends there. I have not heard there is rioting in the streets and a curfew yet but crime is at an all time high. My friends are very worried about the inflation and insecurity. To argue that anyone but the government is to blame for this current crisis would be a lie.

    Now I know for a fact cus I've been there in person that in Britain you can't question a certain elderly rich woman or her vast family,

    Of course you can. The merits of the civil list v crown estate are debated in the media at regular intervals through out the year.

    and about the falklands they say that political parties are not allowed, you can't question the government and you can't have an opinion different from that given by the colonial system. - that's just silly. An overwhelming majority of people in the UK are determined to keep the Falkland Islands free of Argentine aggression but there are some drugged up “pop stars”, a retarded politician and a few guardian readers who openly disagree without any problems.

    Thankfully there are some enlightened posters who recognize the importance of a creative understanding of current geo-political issues that affect international relations.

    It's remarkable that the fate of a regional somewhat well known wine produced in a small European nation may determine the recent diplomatic recognition of the Argentine pretension of what is known in most civilized nations as the Falkland Islands.

    There have been a number of indignant outcries in the Duchy of Grand Fenwick by the national Anti-Dilutionist party who have accused the Argentinian wine industry flooding the European market with Tetrapak wine from Mendoza labeled “Pinot Grande de Fénico” in almost the same style and printing as the famous Duchy's “Pinot Grand Fenwick” and threatening Fenwick's prime market in the Geneva–Montreux–Chamonix areas.

    There are serious and shocking rumors of the Duchess even being possibly deposed by her Anglophile younger sister in a coup d'état. This especially after it was discovered that the notorious Argentine wine was unknowingly being served at the Duchy's Gray Goose Pub which has caused an outrage among the populace.

    Complicating the unrest are questions recently raised by the Fenwick Chancellor of the Exchequer regarding the Grand Duchess expenditures at Harrods, detailed as “replacement Hermès saddles and uniforms” for the Duchy's defense calvary, which apparently disbanded sometime after the end of the Franco-Prussian War in 1871.

    Should the Duchess be deposed, there may be a call for military action against Argentina, and perhaps that is why Cristina is worrying for her safety.

    118. They will liquidate the State expenditure with a massive devaluation again, Argentina will grow for 5 or 4 years then the politicians will start going back to populism and increased expenditure and the cycle of inflation, stagnation and un controlled deficit will make the country implode.

    That has being the historical norm for the last 50 years.

    The only ones who have the power to finish this is the farmers the central provinces and middle classes, but they are brainwashed by populism too.

No more long holydays to Mardel for the BsAs folk, outter regions like Mendoza (toby's wonder land) and Salta which are far away from the ports are going to be very unstable as the toll charged by the truckers and the price of fuel will bring them on their knees.

    The UN will never abandon the Falkland Islands, because to do so would be to undermine it's own charter, thus allowing the UK to ignore them completely.

    The only deluded people here are you, and your President. You know the one. The crazy b!tch who is busy stealing all of your money, ruining your country, and ensuring that you and your children will remain in poverty forever.

    On the other hand the Falkland Islands are going from strength to strength and will still be going strong when Argentina has finally disappeared up it's own hoop.

    Have a nice day. I'm sure they are in the Falklands. Imagine, all that money, an honest and law abiding government, who follows the laws of the land.

    That's only something that you could dream of in your wildest imaginings.

    Oh, a final thought for you. Should Argentina EVER be stupid enough to try and take the FI's by force again, the UK will bomb Argentina back to the stone age. Given the current state of Argentina, should take about 5 minutes.

    Mucho grassy-arse! One is occasionally inspired.

    @162 castortroy

    Firstly, the UK and USA are allies so why would we go to war with each other? Secondly, the last time the Royal Navy and US Navy went on exercise together the RN's Type 45 destroyers literally ran circles around the US Navy, and the US couldn't pinpoint their position because of their stealth capabilities. You know the Type 45's, don't you? The ones your beloved Hector Timerman named the 'Death Star' before the WHOLE UN General Assembly. And guess what? The British have 6 'Death Star's' in total. Plus several Astute class submarines (the most advanced in the world).

    Argentina has...er...some ships that sink in port, a sailing vessel, and a submarine which has been welded together and can't submerge. Ooooh, us British are really trembling in our boots about those assets.

    China only cares about China. You really are deluded if you think that they're going to come to your help. China is going to bleed Argentina dry and then throw you away like an empty can.

    But the last time the Chinese came up against the British they lost the fighting capability of an entire army to ONE British regiment. The Chinese General in charge was believed to have said to the commanding officer of the 'Glorious Glosters' “If this is how you defend a hill in a country that means NOTHING to you, then I pity the men that invade England.”

    As for Russia, they only have the capability of invading people who share a border with them, so I think both the UK and the Falkland Islands will be more than safe from them.

    And now, for your chuckle of the day ( on a completely unrelated matter; stolen from the Penguin News):
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Argentina Objects to Top Gear's FLK Number Plates:

    Top Gear presenter Jeremy
    Clarkson was described by the
    Mirror on Thursday as facing the
    wrath of Argentines, after driving
    through the country in a Porsche
    with a number plate that appears
    to reference the Falklands War.
    However the programme’s
    bosses denied the number plate
    H982 FKL was used intentionally
    during filming of a special
    edition of the show in Argentina.
    The plate went unnoticed on the
    first part of his trip on the famous
    Patagonian Highway from the ski
    resort of Bariloche to the southern
    port of Ushuaia.
    But, it made local headlines
    midweek as Mr Clarkson neared
    the end of his 1,350 mile trek at
    the head of a convoy of vehicles
    including a Lotus and Ford Mustang
    driven by fellow presenters
    James May and Richard Hammond.
    The Mirror said Argentine
    newspaper Clarin claimed it was
    highly sensitive for Argentines
    and Mr Clarkson could have
    problems. The presenter was also
    criticised on Twitter with one user
    telling him: “Your irony is not
    funny in Argentina.”
    But Andy Wilman, Top Gear’s
    executive producer, said: “Top
    Gear production purchased
    three cars for a forthcoming programme;
    to suggest that this car
    was either chosen for its number
    plate, or that alternative number
    plates were substituted for the
    original is completely untrue.”

    We don't need to bring up stuff from 5 centuries ago...that's what Argentina does.

    How about 32 years ago? When this 'small country' kicked your 'large countries' arse off our territory and humiliated you before the whole world.

    You remember that war, don't you? When the British defeated Argentina in a war that even the USA and the USSR said that they couldn't have done, despite their overwhelmingly greater number of men and materials. The war when every military expert in the world said the British just didn't stand a chance of winning. Yet win the British did. So what does that tell us?

    It tells us that either the British are so amazingly brilliant at fighting, tactics and strategy, or that Argentina are terrible at fighting, tactics and strategy. Or most likely that the British are amazingly brilliant at these things, whilst Argentina is terrible at these things.

    How about now? When this 'small country' has your 'large country' so sh!t scared that it has spent the last few years crawling around on it's knees 'begging' your Latin American brothers to steal the Islands for you? Or how it has begged the UN, the OAS, the Chinese, the Russians and even Iran to tell the 'big bad' British to give you someone else's land.

    And what has it achieved? NOTHING. Nothing but a few empty mouthed platitudes meant to placate your insane President, whilst ALL of these countries and organisations laugh at YOUR country behind your backs. You are a laughing stock.

    And if the UK is SO weak and inconsequential as you claim (despite having the 5th most powerful military in the world), what does that make Argentina?

    A country that is held at bay by 4 fighter aircraft, 1 patrol vessel and about 1,000 British service personnel.

    Psst! I'll give you a clue...it makes you pathetic.

    Ah, and now we see the true face of Argentine 'so-called freedom of speech'. You are only allowed FOS if you say what they want to hear.

    Forcing the Top Gear team out just shows how intolerant the Argentines are.

    And for all those Argentine 'veterans' we haven't forgotten how you abused the people of the Falklands. You are not victims. You deserve no special consideration from anyone other than your own people. It's a real pity that your own people (especially your government) only mention you when they want to make political capital out of you. The rest of the time they don't want to know and don't care about you.

    As far as I'm concerned Jeremy Clarkson tells it how it is, and if you don't like it then that is your problem, not his.

    “Local councillor Juan Manuel Romano said the digits 269 on the number plate of the Ford Mustang Mustang Richard Hammond was driving were close to the 255 Britons killed during the 1982 war.
    He added that the numbers 646 on James May's Lotus could be taken as a reference to the 649 Argentinian casualties ” .
    He could have added that Richard Hammond has the same surname as the UK's Defence Secretary ( that's minister, for you trolls ) Provocation !
    The Toyota was red , which was obviously an allusion to the Red Ensign , another provocation !
    The Porsche is the same colour as a submarine . Provocation , I tell you !
    Mustang in Hindi means “ Harrier ” . Yet more provocation .

    If what you say is true, then you are certainly not studying the “Malvinas” conflict in a scholarly objective frame of mind. The impression given is that you have been seeking information either true or fabricated which will reinforce your existing prejudices. Somewhat like an “agent provocateur”
    The one point that I can concede is that you certainly have a great conceit for yourself and that you believe the only opinions that have any validity are your own. As to insults from “hired trailer trash” you seem to be leading the field in this respect. Hardly what I would expect from a self proclaimed ”academic researcher, or maybe you ARE just a Troll.

Anyone of these posters or even the paper or their handlers back in the UK can pay one of the IP relay stations for this address and they will get their answer. Just as the callsign is posted here states, USAF (btw - the paper changed it to US Air Force), is about all I care to divulge. Most active duty personnel that you are accustomed to dealing with probably give you some glazed eyed look if you mention the Malvina/Falkland conflict and you would have to point it out on a map to them. We really don't have a dog in this fight. Like I said before, I may get a letter of counseling for the method of local fishing of information and popular sentiment.

    It's actually Mr., aged 72. Apart from my actual address and name, I have revealed almost everything about my past, education, work and interests. This is so that anyone can judge my posts in relation to my background and upbringing and weigh my remarks accordingly.
    I can respect anonymity but have no time for people who post purporting to be something other than what they are - usually to give “credence” to their prejudices. I presume you have Spanish roots in your family tree.
    The bottom line is that sometimes there is a reasonable discussion on this forum but most of the time it degenerates into a bear pit.

    #248 - Mr. Clyde - I have revealed about as much as I probably can at this point. As my forum handle displays, I am active currently with the US Air Force and the original name was USAF, but the site moderator changed it, so I ran with it and I am from the US. I initially posted some very unbiased factual based comments early but quickly found myself in the gutter exchanging barbs with anonymous characters. None of these Argie/Brit/Spanish topics affect me one bit, unless of course, as some of these online posters suggest and seem to clamor for, armed conflict arises. Dangerous thinking, take for example WWI, some obscure part of Europe, not Paris or London or Berlin has some no name Duke assassinated and within a couple of years millions were dying in the span of a month in Belgium. It would not take much for any one of these disagreements to conflagrate. Hopefully, when all the political posturing and jockeying on the International stage has been set that these trivial items are resolved at the IJC.

    Personally Ms. Fernandez has been a political populist, which in itself has been shown time and time again to fail based on economics. Argentina, much like Venezuela have a buffer to these political escapades, but she is right on her fears to have an unlikely demise. I suggest, besides Allende and Gaitan, to read between the lines, the story of Manuel Noriega and that whole fiasco. Much more to that one than meets the eye or what cable television allows you to see. Good day.

    Poppy, on a more serious note, you place yourself at risk - Here is a tidbit for you: The USAF places all, all of the training squadrons photos on the internet for display since its inception, open source, no classification. Had you been in the Air Force and at Lackland, your response might have been Squadron 3701, flt 0950 dated from the 1960's. There I have narrowed my search for you to about 30 people, picture included with name. Cross searched in the Yellow Pages in the Falklands and you are found out. Here is an example link: http://www.bmtflightphotos.af.mil/shared/media/photodb/photos/2013/01/130103-F-AJ897-100.jpg

    You seem to believe that we are ruled by a Monarch who makes all the decisions affecting the conduct of the UK both at home and abroad and that this is a corrupt drain on the finances of the UK

    Constitutional monarchies with ceremonial monarchs

    Systems in which a prime minister is the active head of the executive branch of government. In some cases the prime minister is also leader of the legislature, in other cases the executive branch is clearly separated from legislature although the entire cabinet or individual ministers must step down in the case of a vote of no confidence. The head of state is a constitutional monarch who only exercises his or her powers with the consent of the government, the people or their representatives.

    I have studied the grammar, syntax and vocabulary of your posts and they don't come out as American. The nearest I can place it is to one of Nostrils many nom de plumes. Also, your “secret” research into whatever you purport to be doing reminds me of Nostrils secret research which was going to threaten our existence.
    I also have to ask myself WHY an US serviceman would be bothered to “investigate” something which has been discussed ad nauseum for over 30 years. There seems to be a hidden agenda in this.

    The sergeant mumbles & the audience laughs at the Captain.

    271- Clyde , The first armed go around in 1982 surprised many countries worldwide. Who would have thought that a third world country would displaced UK interests in an armed fashion. The same holds true today, our interest is establish scenarios that may play out. UK or at least the Malvinistas, should they really seek their own self determination and stop clinging to a European power over 12k miles away. But we both know it won't happen. In 1982, powers were aligning very quickly and ole Iron Britches was ready to send Vulcan Bombers and threatening nuclear launches against BA. A little much. The US is bound by Monroe Doctrine and the Argies were quickly acquiring interest from the FSU in the form of armaments. If you read current political posturing, countries are already aligned, and the UK is miffed with US for not picking sides.
    As far as the UK monarchy, I know they are for show, but I would still throw a large riot if my hard earned taxes were spent on their God Given right (snicker). Monarch are a relic of the past and they need to stop suckling on the UKs tax base and become a footnote.

    276 - I did post something in Spanish a couple of weeks ago in the Spanish version of this paper and nada. It looks like the only people who view this page are the Malvinistas. I am 100 percent positive that this paper being as lob sided as it is against the whole Spanish, Brazilian and Catholic culture that it is being funded by the oil companies for now. British secret service or the propaganda arm are involved for sure to make sure that the islanders keep drinking the kool aid. In the US there were some people that referred to native American tribes routinely as troglodytes and that must have been some reference to their darker reddish skin and dark hair, it was publicized quite profusely and with disdain. I wonder if this 'one' poster that has gotten stuck on 'troll' insinuates the same thing?

    I don't think Clyde is involved in the shenanigans but definitely has vested interest in the isles. Poppy, may be on the payroll, but has accurately portrayed vietnam era bases and may be suffering from deep rooted PTSD from the way he rants.

    Clyde - no threats, proverbial or real from this poster. All academic for the most part. Have written so many papers on Latin America and this is one of the topics. Never really had the chance 'to talk' to actual islanders. Pretty disappointed right about now. Any chance that someone from the US can actually own some of the Islands? or is that against the law?

There is a program made by Jorge Lanata in 2007 I believe, I was quite stunned to find out that all the authorities he got to interview there none of them were islanders but english politicians and corporation representatives. The few islanders he interviewed were youngsters who clearly stated that they have absolutely nothing against Argentina, gentle well mannered folks, nothing like these aggressive arrogant trolls we see here on these posts.

    Any chance that someone from the US can actually own some of the Islands? or is that against the law?“
    You would have to ask someone versed in the law as it applies to the Falklands, I don't know.
    If anyone is involved in the ”Malvinas“payroll then by default they must be Argentinian or a supporter. The only Malvanistas are the thugs in Ushaia.

    ” should they really seek their own self determination and stop clinging to a European power over 12k miles away“
    I am sure that the Falklanders would like this but they have not a hope in Hell's chance with Argentina ready to invade as soon as the UK pulled out.
    As to the British monarchy, none of your business. It will survive as long as the population wish it to.. It's as good a system as any other and although it costs the UK taxpayer money, it is miniscule in the great scheme of thing.
    She does not shaft her country and hide wads of stolen cash in foreign banks like other leaders do. Now which country do I refer to ?
    ” the UK is miffed with US for not picking sides.”
    Surprising ? The USA is always asking the UK for favours in supporting their wars but if we ask for something it's usually ..no deal.
    If you are American then you certainly have Spanish as a first language.

So what is your interest in the Malvinas? Being that South America is a large place and the academic writing that I do has covered everything from Tupac Amaru, to ALBA, Bolivia and the Falkland Islands/Malvinas is why I have an interest. I can honestly say that my interest was peaked when the Active Duty Brits, the older ones that is gave me guff regarding even mentioning the word, “Malvinas”, that is what got me on this post.
