    The word 'responsibly' is unknown by the argentine regime, as there is no translatable equivalent argie spanish.

    Charge Filmus with HATE CRIME against the Falkland Islanders.

    Perhaps we should just expel their embassy, but that'll probably just add more fuel to the fire. Isn't it time we took this to the ICJ as the Argies can't or won't.

    How can you bully when you only resort to law? This is an action in line with international law. Who is breaking international law here? Not certainly Argentina but the colonialist power and its unilateral action against UN resolutions and International law, besides Argentina's legislation.

    Please tell me the formal binding UN Security Council resolutions that the Falklands are breaking?

    Please state the International Law which is being broken?

    There is no“Colonial Power” in the Islands - the offshore EEZ Hydrocarbons and fisheries Zone is 100% managed and controlled and licensed by the Islands Govt. The same local Govt that makes all the Laws for within the Islands.

    There is a nearby nation that wishes to force 19th century Colonial Power over the islands and their people though!

    @3. Hahahahahahahahaha. This may comes as a surprise to you but argie legislation is of no interest to the Falkland Islands or the United Kingdom. It's a matter of jurisdiction, and argieland has none. And what international law? I'll give you a bit of international law. The legal principle of 'uti possidetis'. Look it up and consider the effect of the Falklands War that you lost. Who gives a toss about UN resolutions?

    And here's a really good bit.
    http://news.sky.com/story/1466862/argentina-action-over-uk-oil-firms-in-falklands
    Quote: Mr Filmus said a judge in Rio Grande, Argentina, had agreed to take on the case, involving three UK firms and two from the US.

    So Filmus had to search around argieland to find a judge stupid enough to consider such a case. A Kirchnerist, no doubt.

    Watch the world's judiciary laughing themselves sick. Why doesn't srgieland find an equally stupid judge to oppose Judge Griesa?

    So what your saying is they are occupying the Argentine continental shelf. That is sheer fantasy, here's the reality thus: ”International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the North Sea continental shelf cases, in which Denmark and the Netherlands based their claim inter alia on the doctrine of proximity, i.e., that the part of the continental shelf closest to the part of the state in question falls automatically under that state's jurisdiction. In these cases the ICJ rejected any contiguity type of approach. As for continuity, it is argued, the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Continental Shelf and Contiguous Zone, Article 1, now contained in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf.

    UN clearly say the Islanders have the right to develop their own resources, free from outside interference.

    UN also recognises the UK as “administering power”, has de facto sovereignty and therefore legal jurisdiction over the territory.

    Argentine domestic law cannot be applied where Argentina does not have sovereignty or legal jurisdiction, the UK does.

    Been reading this boards for the last few months and have decided say something.

    Nothing more than a distraction from an increasingly desperate and autocratic government.

    Just leave the islanders to get on with their lives and the Argentinian politicians focus on their supposedly democratic mandate (used very guardedly) to focus on making the lives of their citizens better. Energy, time and resources should be spend on sorting out governance, corruption, high homicide rates, poor industrial relations, economy in recession, rampant inflation, infrastructure issues

    Plenty of priorities to focus meaningfully on rather than this stunt that will only make Argentinian politicians look foolish, and waste a lot of Argentinian taxpayers hard earned money.

    Meanwhile the oil companies will keep on drilling

    That's if the bookies accept the bet.

    Yawn. Argentines obsessed to illness about the Falklands on the side, Anglos on the other. Don't you people get bored of whipping out the same hackneyed arguments. They are all irrelevant in the end, it is British people in those islands now, really I have no interest in forcing people out or in accepting something they don't want.

    I would know about that. I don't want the UK or any European country to be in my country. I don't even want their embassies here, I want them GONE. Yet they force themselves upon us, when the Argentine people have made it more than obvious there is nothing about them we have an interest in.

    ...but not the ICJ to settle it once and for all. Go to the ICJ and accept the result and i would agree with you, but trying to sue company executives in Argentina where you can get a friendly though completely unenforcable result, rather than in the State who has jurisdiction in the Falklands, is not intended to get justice but simply to add cost & risk to the oil companies in the hope of denying economic development to the islanders. It's pretty despicable stuff but not in any way surprising though it might flush out some interesting national views from 3rd countries should you attempt to apply international arrest warrants in North America or the EU.

    Enrique,
    That may be true if the charges were not based on a contrived history and fallacious principles of ownership.

    Furthermore, after tearing up resource management agreements, Argentina under the K's, has attempted an economic blockade to isolate the Falklands and economically coerce them into submission.

    This legal challenge to shut down the oil industry, is just one element of the larger
    campaign of economically bullying the Falklands.

    The unifying Argentine 'National Hate' against a small, identifiably foreign, 'enemy', is being ratcheted up.

    Your Nationalism is based on a contrived hatred, Enrique.

    “In addition, we are talking about legal action against some private companies”

    To be able to extradite these oil executives from the UK, USA and Italy, surely you will have to prove that Argentina owns the Falkland Islands, before any country would agree to extradite?

    Do you seriously think, with the Argentine government's refusal to accept Judge Greisa's judgements (from a USA court)that the USA are going to pay any notice to a request to extradite?

    And as the UK do not accept the Argentine claim, there would be absolutely no chance that an extradition request would be met, because if Argentina proved beyond doubt that they had a right to own the Islands, the UK would not be on the Islands.

    So Argentina needs to go to the ICJ to get a judgement in it's favour first, otherwise your country is going to look very stupid.

    “Is and always has been?” -- The south Atlantic? You are a poor, delusional old Anglo. First you say the Mar Argentino ends 200 nautical miles, on the next breath you obviously forget to apply that same rule.

    Anglos will be Anglos.

    200 nautical miles from South Georgia you own nothing of the South Atlantic.

    Clyde, As no Troll is going to answer you, I will.

    The case has been accepted by the Federal Judge of Río Grande, Tierra del Fuego. So presumably it will be heard in that court.

    As I said in a post on another thread, trial “in absentia” is prohibited by our Constitution so unless the court can get extradition orders complied with by the UK, USA, EU and the FIG, there is no lawful way to try the case, unless CFK and her cronies manage to rewrite the Constitution and I don't think they have time.

    “always has been?” -- The south Atlantic...you own nothing of the South Atlantic.” Unfortunately, the ICJ does not agree with your self-opinionated, unsupported claim. In fact the under international law the ICJ has made a ruling that is implicit of UK sovereignty. ”International Court of Justice (ICJ) ...based their claim inter alia on the doctrine of proximity, i.e., that the part of the continental shelf closest to the part of the state in question falls automatically under that state's jurisdiction. In these cases the ICJ rejected any contiguity type of approach. As for continuity, it is argued, the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Continental Shelf and Contiguous Zone, Article 1, now contained in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands had their own “continental shelves,” p.74 The Falklands/Malvinas Case Breaking the Deadlock in the Anglo-Argentine...By Roberto C. Laver

    British Foreign Secretary William Hague responded to statements made in South America about the Falkland Islands. ...“We made clear that the decision to close ports to ships flying the Falklands flag has no legal basis, and that it would be unacceptable and unbecoming for any Latin American democracy to collaborate in Argentina’s attempts to economically blockade the Falkland Islands. ...Such actions are inconsistent with the principles of the United Nations Charter and the rights of the Falkland Islands people to trade openly and without hindrance. ...Whilst we do not accept that the decision to refuse entry to vessels flying the Falklands flag has any basis in international law, our priority has been to ensure that the trade and commercial links between the Falklands and South America are not compromised by this political declaration. ” Jan 10, 2012 http://falklandsnews.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/chil

    Attrition will take some time but will work in the end. Argentina has claimed the Malvinas for years and will continue to use any available means to get the Brits out of there--peacefully.
    It will be increasingly expensive for Britain to keep the islands in face of growing world opposition and continued long-term Argentine action in all fields. And the moment to give up the islands will eventually come for the old imperial powerhouse.

    Britain will never (NEVER) hand over sovereignty to Argentina against the wishes of the islanders.

    You are deluded that there is growing “world opposition”, when asked in 2008 the UNGA voted 60 to 40 in the UKs favour and many of the 40 were Latin states.

    There are many reasons Britain won't give the islands to Argentina, primarily the islanders wishes but also because Argentina has no historic, moral, legal or other just claim to them.

    The “Malvinas” is a tool used by your government to stir up a jingoistic, nationalistic fervour in the less intelligent of the Argentine people. To invent a pretend enemy that the “ignorant masses” can unite against. It seems to work for you.

    It should surely be obvious by now, that Argentina doesn't really want the islands, at all, it wants the dispute. And the UK, by declining to feed the troll and give it one, is pushing Argentina into ever decreasing circles of irrationality which ensure that the islands will never be Argentine. The so-called strategy of attrition will never work, quite simply because there is no attrition worth mentioning, and this will remain so as long as nobody outside Argentina has the least intention of jeopardizing friendly relations with the UK in order to support Argentina's neurosis.

    It's quite a sweet sweet deal for the Peronists, and the only ones unhappy with it all are the Malvinista faithful suckered into believing it and paying for it.

    What is this “increasing cost” for the UK?

    I've never been able to find why it is costing the UK more money now other than normal cost of living and inflationary increases.

    Technically it would be cheaper to shoot retirees after they finishing working to lessen their cost to the state and free up their accumulated capital for their descendants.

    However a civilised country doesn't do this. It also doesn't cut off some citizens simply because they may cost money.

    Some states of Australia draw more tax dollars than they create. Doesn't mean we get rid of Tasmania. It is a cost of being a country.

    So sorry Enrique, your logic while valid to someone with an Argentinean education, is farcical when examined by anyone else.

    “...gant the islanders reasonable options to stay and keep goods and property as Argentine subjects.”

    Exactly as subjects. Not citizens.

    No, suing Argentina for suing companies operating *legally* in another nation's territory, the British Falklands.

    “Argentina has claimed the Malvinas for years and will continue to use any available means to get the Brits out of there--peacefully.”

    Or more accurately, with lies, bullying and avoiding the only appropriate forum by any means necessary.

    “It will be increasingly expensive for Britain to keep the islands in face of ... continued long-term Argentine action in all fields.”

    So rather than good-faith negotiation or ICJ arbitration, you'd prefer to harrass, bully and lie? At last, someone who's honest about Argentina's intentions.

    “And the moment to give up the islands will eventually come for the old imperial powerhouse.”

    And on that day, the Falklands will be independent, and will associate with whomever they please. I doubt they'll be inclined to allow the bully Argentina any favours.

    “My preference, when transfer of sovereignty is done...”

    In other words, never.

    “...would be to grant the islanders reasonable options to stay and keep goods and property as Argentine subjects.”

    Yes. Or you could do the right thing now, acknowledge and withdraw the Malvinas Lie, and grant the legitimate inhabitants of the Falklands freedom from harrassment, and the freedom to stay as *citizens* of the legitimate holders of sovereignty as their self-determination vote showed was their wish.

The air force has to be somewhere and also has to be paid. The ground forces have to be somewhere and have to be paid.

What I stated was the UK could sue Argentina for any losses as the result of her illegal blockade, which is a breach of UN international law. Specifically, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea(UNCLOS), Article 24, Duties of a Coastal state, 1.The coastal state shall not..

    I don't think there is any legal bar to Argentina (or any other country) blocking access to its ports. UNCLOS only means that Argentina can't block the innocent passage of foreign ships through its territorial waters, it can however block passage through internal waters and presumably access to ports. I'm no lawyer so could very well be wrong though.

    Argentina is doing the right move….. The UK is a decadent country (with little prestige in Europe; and left out of the important meetings as has being the case in the last meetings between Putin and Merkel and Hollande),…. So forcing the speed of the decadence is the right move to do ….. You can bet that France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Rusia, etc…. are happy with the situation.

    ”I don't think there is any legal bar to Argentina (or any other country) blocking access to its ports....“ There is no such qualifying clause specifying as to territorial waters or internal waters. Based on how these are usually interpreted, it would mean it's applicable to both, this is confirmed by a 'plain English' reading of the article.
    ”The coastal state shall not.. (b)discriminate in form or in fact against the ships of any state or against ships carrying cargoes to, from or on behalf of any state.”

    ”I don't think there is any legal bar to Argentina (or any other country) blocking access to its ports....” I followed up on your assertion, in which you are in fact correct. As there is exclusive sovereignty over internal waters to wit:
    Legal Status of Internal Waters
    § Full territorial sovereignty of the coastal State
    § No right of innocent passagefor foreign ships Exception: Article 8, para.2
    § Foreign ships must acquire prior consent of the coastal State before its entry into internal waters of that coastal State.
    But there is a caveat thus:
    Theory and Practice
    § Aramco arbitration(1958)
    “According to a great principle of public international law, the ports of every State must be open to foreign vessels and can only be closed when the vital
    interests of the State so require.” (not much support) States have the right to nominate ports used for international trade(treaty).
    § States may close its international ports to protect its vital interests such as security, public order and the prevention of pollution, and political displeasure
    (customary international law).

    I'm not convinced. UNCLOS is the codification of maritime law superseding anything established before and I don't see any prohibition in there. Furthermore, if it were illegal why hasn't there been a firmer objection by HMG or FIG. I think we need an expert in international maritime law.

    Are you saying that none of the circumstances you have highlighted have EVER occurred in Argentina?

    After all with the natural resources at your disposal and well rung economy of your country should correspond to about 2/3rds of the UK economy. So instead why does in only corresspond to just 1/6th the size of the UK ecomony? Surely that would mean you, like the UK have your own similar problems too?

    I don't dispute the UK has got big problems - it has - and on the 7th May, in a free and fair way the population of our country can make that choice to elect a government that will give the UK a better deal

    Have argentines never died when its got too cold or too hot?

    Most pensioners in the UK will have worked for a living, meaning that they will have an occupational pension which is topped up by the state pension.

    If you are saying its a money thing - defending the falklands is is something like 0.5% of the defence budget - a really brilliant way to save the money would be for Argentina to renounce its claim and respect the islanders' right to self determination.

    2.) Also, we both receive STATE pensions totalling in excess of GBP14500(USD22000) annually and we are not untypical of our peers.

    3) In addition to the above we enjoy free local transport throughout England and Wales with our bus passes. We hardly ever use our car as this “perk” is very useful

    Where is Argenchina in the list of the most powerful passports that do not require visas?
    “Visa free countries list:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travelnews/11552784/The-worlds-most-powerful-passports.html

    Finland / Germany / Sweden / United Kingdom / USA are joint top with 174 countries to visit WITHOUT needing a Visa.

    @ 36 Brazil with 146 countries

    @ 46 Colombia with 66 countries

    Bottom of the list is Afghanistan with 28.”

    Where are the rest of the Lovey-Dovey SA countries? Nowhere to be seen.

    I was surprised at the omission of Chile.

    Viriato
    How some of your neighbours hold you in esteem.
    In a train there were an old lady, a very pretty young woman, an Argentine man and a Brazilian man.
    The train entered a very dark tunnel. A kiss was heard and after that the sound of a slap.
    The old lady thought:
    - I am proud of this young woman. One of the two youngsters kissed her and she slapped him hard.
    The young woman thought:
    - One of the two guys tried to kiss me, but ended up kissing the old lady and got slapped.
    The Argentine thought:
    - What bad luck! The Brazilian kissed the girl, and the one that got slapped was me.
    The Brazilian:
    - Ha ha, great! I kissed the back of my hand and slapped the face of the Argentine.

    Voice, you're so creepy. All the Sistahs are very strange creatures, grasping at having to know who the posters are, how much money they have, what kind of upbringing they had, education level etc etc etc.
    It is a sickness.
    You need mental help.

    I find it amusing....Terry fighting the British good fight.....from Brazil....

    Nothing to know about you really...
    You have a 30 year mortgage...so no money...
    You are a realtor ...so no education...
    ...who would really want to know you...?
    A guttersnipe with delusions of grandeur...
    ...did I get anything wrong...?

    157. That post is exactly what I am talking about.
    You have a sickness.
    How does whatever I am where I live or what I do have any bearing on my delightful posts or your very sad life?
    It is your bitterness and loneliness that makes you so envious.

    My guess is you've reached an age where you know you'll never amount to anything and you're leaving only sadness and destroyed relationships as your legacy.

    Sorry Sistah you got lots wrong.
    I'll give you a clue you don't have one accurate statement in the whole post.
    unless Troy is in Brazil and I have no idea and couldn't care less

    Not saying that YB is a realtor, not that it matters, but...

    FYI
    Being a Real Estate agent in NA is a very respectable business, with the potential to earn big $$$, esp. if you represent a large condo developer or commercial realty firm.

    Many realtors have very successful, wealthy, and prominent clients - they promote at very prestigious events with celebrities and urban developers.

    You are preoccupied with your own outdated local prejudices and your own low position in the British Class System.

    You must be one frustrated bitter little man.

    If you work hard, and smart as a realtor, you can make an excellent living and an enjoyable life - well, perhaps NOT for you, it involves meeting people and getting along with them, without copping an attitude.

    Perhaps you are just relating to the deep feelings of inadequacy and resentment you felt whilst dealing with the 'rather snooty' local agent who pocketed a good commission from you, when he sold you that damp cheap bedsit for you and your mum to share...

    So much for your own prejudices... or should I say, yours and “Stevie's”, as he is rattling on about exactly the same thing on another thread..., mortgages... consumer loans... credit... none of which he understands or is eligible for - sorta like you.

    Enjoy... you miserable old curmudgeon
