    No madam, you don't need dialogue, you need to see a doctor about your confused state of mind. Continually spouting bare faced lies and distortions of the truth has addled your brain. My advice..get back behind that trolley calling chicken or beef? is the only thing suitable for your level of competence.

    I agree we need dialogue with Argentina, get them round the table and then bring in two extra chairs after they have all sat down, and then introduce two FALKLANDERS to hear their side of the debate. LOL

    According to Ambassador Castro it was all the fault of some others (the Junta) and Margaret Thatcher. Apparently the Junta came over here against the will of the people (despite one of the biggest turnouts in BA of people celebrating) and than Margaret Thatcher ruined the chance of it ending peacefully by responding.

    Alicia Castro
    Tell me now. How was the peaceful ending that Margaret Thatcher spoiled going to end? Would we all be driving on the right now and speaking Spanish?

    Margaret Thatcher prevented a peaceful ending!

    It's all right for them to shoot at, imprison and ethnically cleanse you, but it's a crime for you to fight back.

    The woman's barking!

    It's simple really, you can't be trusted, you consistently demonstrate to the world that you never, ever, keep your word and that you have no sense of honour or shame. Consequently no one believes a damned word you say anymore and are unlikely to for a long, long time. End of!

    @Alicia Castro,
    1) These lslands are called the Falklands, NOT the Malvinas.
    2) Argentina DOES pose a military threat to the Falklands.
    3) We do NOT need or want “dialogue”.
    How hard is all that to understand?
    And there is absolutely NOTHING to “dialogue” about.
    We don't need you & we don't want you.
    Heck, we don't even LIKE you.
    Please leave now,

    “...Margaret Thatcher prevented a peaceful solution...”

    Liar. It was your junta that prevented a peaceful solution the moment they launched an illegal invasion of another nation's sovereign territory.

    Your soldiers subjugated the legitimate inhabitants of the Falkland Islands, forced them to adapt their culture to match yours, even tried to force them to teach the Malvinas Lie in their schools.

    There is evidence that those who rightly protested at your mistreatment were to be taken to the mainland to be murdered, most likely followed by the rest of the Islanders when you thought you could get away with it.

    Thatcher brought peace to a war that *you* started.

    “...set an example to the world by resolving the Malvinas Question through peaceful and diplomatic means.”

    When you are willing to negotiate *without* the requirement that you get the Falklands regardless of outcome, then we can have a diplomatic solution.

    When you are willing to attend meetings with the Falkland Islanders representing their interests, that your precious (non-binding) UN Resolutions require be taken into account, then we can have a diplomatic solution.

    You're not really interested in a diplomatic solution, are you?

    “Above all, we have the obligation and the responsibility to not leave the dispute and its consequences unresolved for future generations.”

    If you believed that, you wouldn't be lying to your future generations about the dispute.

    There's am easy and fair way to resolve the dispute: You and yours admit you've been lying all along (as we all know you have), and apologise to the UN and the C24 for wasting their time trying to steal islands that do not belong to you.

    You then stop trying to prevent the C24 from acknowledging the self-determination vote and subsequent decolonisation of the British Falklands.

    Any honest person can agree that is a fair and equitable outcome for all of our parties.

    Isn't this the representative of a nation that keeps complaining that the UK is ignoring UN Resolutions. Well apparently the UK isn't the only one.
    Ref.: 2225(XXI)
    The General Assembly,
    Deeply... ...without distinction of any kind,
    Recognizing that full observance of the principle of the non-intervention of States in the internal and external affairs of other States is essential to the fulfilment of the purposes and principles of the United Nations,
    Considering further that direct intervention, subversion and all forms of indirect intervention are contrary to these principles and, consequently, constitute a violation of the Charter of the United Nations,
    Mindful that violation of the principle of non-intervention poses a threat to the independence, freedom and normal political, economic, social and cultural development of countries, particularly those which have freed themselves from colonialism, and can pose a serious threat to the maintenance of peace,
    1. No State has the right to intervene, directly or indirectly, for any reason whatever, in the internal or external affairs of any other State. 4. The strict observance of these obligations is an essential condition to ensure that nations live together in peace with one another, since the practice of any form of intervention not only violates the spirit and letter of the Charter of the United Nations but also leads to the creation of situations which threaten international peace and security.

    I've got a better idea.

    Carry on supporting the defences in the Falklands and stop sending aid to Argentina, instead using that money to fund a permanent deep water port in the Falklands, to compete with Ushuaia.

    Commenting on recently military and defense allocations by the UK government is none of the Ambassadors' or her government's business, and telling the UK government what priorities it should be adopting with their raised revenues is not only blatant cheek but unbridled hypocrisy : ”In a context of drastic cuts to health, education and social benefits, many people do not want to see their taxes invested in defence spending, especially if it is to maintain a costly military base on some remote islands, to prevent an invasion that will never occur. These funds should instead be used for the benefit of the British people to tackle unemployment, invest in education and healthcare, and broaden social inclusion”. Hilariously outrageous, but hardly surprising.

    “Argentina poses no military threat to Malvinas”. That may be true for the moment. But only due to the combination of the bad shape of the Argentine armed forces and the British commitment to defent the Falklands. Until the Argentine Republic changes its Constitution you cannot trust them. After decades of indoctrination the whole Argentine society has to undergo a “demalvinazion process”, like the “denazificion” of Germany after WWII, (including changing names of schools, airports, stadiums &c &c. After that, there could, perhaps, be normal relations.

    All this from an Argentine establishment who describe the population as “squatters” with no right to be there.

    Even though they have been there for far longer than Argentina has existed, in anything like its current form.

    And the S. Atlantic has been British territory for far longer than that.

    Given the complete mess Argentina is in, I think we will take our own advice on how our elected government spends our money.

    Absolutely no point in talking to anyone who thinks like this woman, there is nothing to be gained.

    No doubt future generations of Argys will have to suffer the consequences of this alleged dispute being un-resolved, but that is their problem not ours.

    I take it you read the 2nd paragraph? I was laughing so hard by the end that a little bit of wee came out!! Oh, please tell me again, what qualifications / experience do you need to become an ambassador?

    I just wonder, in all of this whether she actually believes what she's saying to be the truth, or whether she has a hard time keeping a straight face whilst she is writing it out / speaking it.

    Either way, I think we all know what “peaceful ending” the argentinians had in mind. The one that starts with “Port Stanley” and ends with “Porto Argentina”

    Yes, the Argentine Government and the Argentine people need to accept and admit that Argentina rejected the terms of UN Resolution 2065 when Argentina carried out its secret plot settle the Question of the Falklands by illegal military force whilst conducting negotiations under Resolution 2065 under false pretense

    The British had not considered that whilst negotiating peacefully in good faith with the Argentine government that the Argentine government would plan and conduct unlawful act of war against them

    Ambassador Castro is utterly wrong to say to the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher prevented a peaceful solution, when Argentina refused to obey binding resolution 502 by the UN Security Force to withdraw its forces from The Falklands and South Georgia unilaterally, since all nations have the right to self-defense from unprovoked attack on the sovereign territory under Article 51 of the UN Treaty and Thatcher was simply doing her duty as Prime Minister to defend British people and land from enemy forces that had invaded and subjugated British people at the barrel of gun

    Clearly Ambassador Castro and the Argentine government seek to make sinister propaganda, i.e. Argentina seeks to draw false equivalency of the Argentine act of war and aggression with the British decision to delay military action and give peace talks a chance until the British forces were in place in theater and able to repulse the Argentine illegal invasion force

    The truth is that the Argentine Navy launched a surprise pincer movement attack on the British Royal Navy as they British approached the Falkland Islands; when the British Royal Navy countered the Argentine attack, Argentina blamed the British Royal Navy for defending itself

    It is contemptible & disgraceful that the democratic Argentine government employs the same false propaganda of its past military junta practicing its repugnant cynically mendacious state policy of dehumanisation of the Islanders. Shame on Argentina!

    Yes mate. You're right about the “others.” It's always someone else's fault with Argentina. Never their fault. Everyone is out to get them. The British are intimidating them with their military. The IMF is ganging up on them. The West is against them.

    They probably do believe all the BS they spout because they say it so much they've forgotten what the truth is. The sight of that crazy bitch Castro being driven around London in ARG1 makes me sick. I don't know why the UK Gov't tolerates her.

    “The UK Government has recently announced a reinforcement and modernisation of military infrastructure on the islands, which will require an investment of 180 million pounds to be spent over the coming years, in addition to a declared annual budget of 70 million”

    It is in everybody's interest for Britain to maintain a strong military deterrence in the Falklands. I am sure that Castro and the peace loving Argie government wouldn’t want to see any more military 'adventures' in the South Atlantic that could cost more innocent lives. Remember 1982!

    And since Argentina is militarily impotent, it falls once again to the UK to pick up the burden and ensure that the South Atlantic remains a 'zone of peace'. After all this is in accordance with stated Argentine government policy.

    How humiliating it must be for Argentina to have another country, implement its policies and keep the peace for them.

    Off topic but a bit of good light-hearted news for the Easter weekend?

    China is becoming “increasingly wary” of investing in Argentina as it struggles with slowing growth, inflation, and a worsening relationship with the United States.

    Xiang Songzuo, chief economist at the state-run Agricultural Bank of China, told Emerging Markets that Beijing had become “more and more cautious about investing in Argentina, both directly [in state-to-state transactions], and in terms of purely equity deals”.

    Xiang also highlighted the “potential political risk” of investing in a country that remained mired in a war of words with the United States about how to restructure its foreign debt. “We are worried about dealing with countries that have clear tensions with the United States,” he added.

    The INDEC statistics bureau tips the economy to shrink by 0.5% this year, with a similar contraction eyed for 2016. Argentina’s currency slumped 23% against the US dollar in 2014, while inflation remains at eye-watering levels: private estimates place the true level of consumer price inflation at close to 40%.

    Another concern remained the low levels of transparency and conditionality placed on cheap loans extended by Beijing to Buenos Aires. “Many Chinese experts have begun to complain about that. We need to ensure that, more and more, we place the right conditionalities on loans to the country,” he said.

    @36. 'a campaign is now starting to remove all traces of British culture, history, and influence'. Excellent news! What will you be doing with the Welsh that Kirchner & Co were so proud of? A bit more genocide?
    @38. Nothing poorer than you!
    @42. Curiously, a major international organisation now calls the Drake Passage.........the Drake Passage. This may come as a surprise to you but little parochial places like argieland have very little effect on the real world. And who produces the most accurate and widely-recognised nautical charts in the world? It ain't (all our ships are on the bottom) argieland.
    @44. Do please remember to rip up or tear down anything that might be British. You'll be ripping up all your railways, what tiny elements of economic sense you still have and don't forget to refuse all 'Anglos' permission to visit your cesspit.
    @46. Who would remember your 'personal view' on anything? We don't care. Try a 'personal opinion' on this. How many nuclear missiles are currently targeted on argieland?
    @48. Sorry, child. No-one else in the WORLD seems to have heard of 'Piedra Buena' Passage. I've decided to rename the Rio de la Plata as Rio de la Britannica. Okay with you? Watch for the Admiralty charts.
    @50. You'd be pressed to claim that you are Pongo pygmaeus.

    It is quite clear that your ilk must be negated. Did you know that when the visit of ONE of HM Ships to the Falkland Islands is reported, it's actually TWO ships?

    Well, I'm not interested in whether the Falklanders depend or not on anyone in particular.

    I just made the point that countries behave based on interest. Even if country A hates B, if there are tangible reasons to deal with B, country A will deal (look at USA and Russia, or UK and Libya, or China and Japan, or Israel and Egypt).

    Obviously Argentina's behavior is luculent beyond blemish in demonstrating it sees absolutely and unambiguously NOTHING tangible in changing its behavior to 'attract' the UK.

    I don't foresee that changing any time soon. The UK, within Argentina, is about as relevant as Burkina Faso.

    You seem to want to bait the British into saying we want Argentina to deal with us. We don't give a shit about Argentina. Our only interest in Argentina is making sure it keeps its dirty, dishonest paws off the Falkland Islands. I agree with you: the UK is of no interest to Argentina. Just like Argentina is of no interest to the UK except for its desire for the Falklands.

    Now, have you got any proof of your imaginary campaign to get rid of all things British in Argentina? So far attempts you've made have failed hilariously. Of course you don't have to prove anything to me- I am British- but normally when you can rub our noses in something you do so I guess the campaign is only in your special head.

    You mean like blue eyes, only native to northern Europe?

    The period of “British influence” in Argentina is simply a page in the book that is the history of Argentina.

    Tear it out and burn it, re-write the whole book if you wish.

    It is of no consequence to us whatsoever.

    What Argentina thinks or feels about anything, is of absolutely no consequence to us whatsoever.

    It is your children who will grow up not knowing what made their world.

    I don't think anyone would want to be invaded by Argentina. As a country we are in our inevitable decline, one that cannot be changed, stopped, or prevented. It's the nature of things. Yet we don't want any influence from anyone else either. Nothing there of note to incorporate into our culture. So I agree, except of course wit your odious racism of Argentina. I could understand if you hate us, but racism has no excuse regardless of what the other does.


    I agree with your points also.

    So now that we understand all of this, I move on.

    That has nothing to do with “English”. Argentine enjoy learning languages, for the pursuit, not because it is of any use for us. Almost all choose at least one: English, French, Italian, Portuguese, and German being the top choices. There are Alliance Francaises and Goethe's in several cities. Italian and Portuguese teachers all over the place. It's because we are educated unlike the Anglo who is dumb and lazy and has not evolved much beyond their Neanderthal ancestors in language proficiency: you barely speak ONE, some even struggle on that lone one!

    I of course, being light years ahead of Anglos and a couple of steps superior to other Argentines, am learning 12 languages, plus thousands of new English-language words every year.

    I must open myself and embrace other cultures and languages in order to spread my xenophobia and isolationism.
