    Common sense REALITY says Pres Macri will have about 100 far more important issues to deal with for several years!
    Little change will happen regards the economic blockade issues etc and that does not matter, but hopefully the vitriolic child rhetoric and mad screams will die away after Dec 10th!
    In time maybe both sides may be able to start to get back to separating practical relationship issues from political ones - BUT - it will take a miminum of one - and more likely TWO Generations to pass before the hatred of Argentina that the Kirscheners caused in the Islands will even begin to fade.
    That demented bitch and her befuddled late husband have a lot to answer to. Before them we at least were able to communicate with each other on practical matters and were adult enough to separate politics from everyday life.

    I honestly doubt Macri will touch the Falkland's issue at this stage. He has far more pressing matters to deal with and the last thing he needs is to give CFK and her activists fuel to burn.

    Of more importance for Macri will be securing Britain's support at the G20 and with getting an EU deal, i.e. using Britain to his advantage, rather than being stupid enough to ensure that Britain will block Argentina from deals as with the peronists.

    Self-determination cannot be beaten, it has prevailed and won through and can only be changed by war.
    Argentina needs to abandon its lost cause and concentrate it's efforts on improving life within its own borders.

    Argentina used to be a wealthy country when it had a close relationship with the UK.

    The falklanders should press UN about your self determination. If you are waiting that Macri recognize this, forget it, due to he would be hang out in a tree in Plaza de Mayo

    I don t know the steps that a territory would be recognized as an independent nation. I guess that you made your homework with the referendum but it was not recognized by UN or I misunderstood? So the UN is responsible of this situation

    @15

    “UN resolutions will prevail!!!”
    Correct.
    UN Resolution 502 for starters.

    And when Argentines can correctly read the provisions of 2065 (made defunct by Argentina's invasion in 1982), then progress can be made, as most of them favour the Falkland Islanders (i.e. not the UK or Argentina).

    And UN rules also apply i.e. the UN Charter and the failed attempt in 2008 for Spain and Argentina to get a ruling that a sovereignty dispute affects self determination.

    They lost that vote.

    And the lies spread by Ruda in the early sixties can now be debunked with an Argentine president that appears on first sight to have an attack of common sense. But time will tell whether he is different from the Clowns previously running Argentina or not.

    However, if the Malvinas myth is debunked, Argentina will not lose out financially if they play their cards right.

    They will in fact be winners.

    Supplying the Falklands with goods, services and workers is a possibility with an Argentina that talks to the Islanders bringing money (from the oil or fisheries) straight into Argentina's coffers, without Argentina having to do a stroke of work on the oil fields. But they have to supply something to get that oil money.

    Any big infrastructure projects will need workers.

    Argentina has to decide whether Argentine workers and their economy will benefit from Falkland money (possibly from oil) or whether the labour supply and goods supplies comes from somewhere else.

    My hunch is that Macri will evaluate and make use of the British psyche which so far confuses most Argentines, as they have been too lazy to study it, believing that their maschismo and cunning(that's a laugh) wins when in fact it has lead to their demise.

    @26
    “so I don't see what you mean about Macri using the British psyche.”

    It's this simple.

    If Macri is on friendly terms with the UK and stops bullying the Islanders, he's probably going top be helped in every way that the UK can.

    If Macri keeps telling lies about the Malvinas Myth, acting aggressively towards the UK and bullying the Islanders, he's not going to get the help and the contacts that the British can supply to help Argentina get back on it's feet.

    Even though Britain always maintained their claim on the Falklands was valid and the final outcome had to be subject to the Islanders say , the British still negotiated with Argentina in the 1960s/1970s/1980s over the status of the Falklands to achieve a peaceful settlement.

    When Britain did this, Argentina responded by invading the Islands. Because Galteiri did not study the British psyche, he assumed the Briitsh were just going to take this up the ass.

    Even though the USA warned him of this, he was convinced the British would not fight because in good will they had been prepared to discuss the Falklands.

    So when the British issued a warning on the 23rd April that any Argentine asset deemed to be a threat to the task force ,anywhere, could be subject to attack, Galteiri dismissed this as 'machismo because he thought the UK reasoned like Argentina.

    He was wrong.

    Argentina got its ass handed to it on a plate and Galteiri was history before the gorse flowered in the Falklands summer.

    And because Argentina gave the UK no choice, the Falkland Islands have since been garrisoned against attack, because the UK understands the Argentine psyche.

    Therefore to get the most out of the UK (and it's Argentina that is receiving aid from the UK, not the other way around), Macro has to understand the British psyche.

    Argentina may not have allied with Germany in WW2 but it certainly was a supporter. Peron was a tried and true Fascist. They thought Germany would win. They were wrong
    and they have never recovered.
    Every chance the USA could we thwarted them from succeeding.
    and we will continue to do so because Rgs want to be aligned against the USA in their hearts they can't figure out why they get poorer and dumber every year while the USA grows and grows without stopping.

    It's people like Think/Voice/Marcos that will always drag the country down. Their arrogance and stupidity will not allow them to admit they have inferior ways and prefer to support rogue regimes against the USA. It has never prospered a nation to go against the USA.

    Look at who the Ks were in business with, Iran, Venezuela, are the two worst, you are who the company that you keep.

    Maybe Macri can pry open the door a bit wth the USA but Argentina's history of not living up to agreements, endemic corruption, not respecting contracts or private property will always make legitimate countries hold back and in turn keep them down. You can't erase 100 yrs of history in one Prez term.

    Peronism is Facism. There's no denying it. Peron though he'd end up ruling 1/3 of the continent.

    Well he chose wrong, as all the rulers you've had since him have done.

    Your quote
    “ fratricidal war between Anglo Saxon brothers, sisters & cousins.”..
    What you are saying is that the French, Serbs,Croats, Greeks Poles are Anglo Saxons. You are very fond of using the term Anglos incorrectly or inventing your own meaning for the same.

    Even a Scot does NOT know that either war was a consequence of competing Anglo Saxon Royal families. It is what I would expect from a rather simplistic and biased mind..
    The BBC did a series of programs on the 100th anniversary of the war and nowhere did it say that competition between the Royal Houses was the cause.

    Being marooned in Argentina....if that is where you are....leaves you outside current historical research into the causes from academics in all the main countries involved.

    As to your last quote attributed to Churchill, I strongly doubt that he was an admirer of Hitler.

    As to your meetings with officers of the Waffen SS , no doubt they were anti-Nazi and only reluctant part time soldiers ! Why did they do a runner while the members of the Wermacht went home
    At the post-war Nuremberg trials the Waffen-SS was condemned as a criminal organisation due to its connection to the Nazi Party and involvement in numerous war crime

    The more things change the more they stay the same.
    I don't remember reading this last year,

    Fraud, Corruptions, Fascism...
    Kirchner and Peron

    A cornerstone of fascism is economic nationalism. A nation cannot be truly independent until it secures national self-sufficiency, or autarky. To accomplish this, the fascist government creates and develops state-owned industries either by establishing new ones or nationalizing existing foreign companies. However, private domestic firms and state-owned industries may coexist in a fascist state. To foster and protect them from foreign competition, the government usually restricts foreign imports that could compete with their output.

    I am in no way a historian of Peron's tenure in Argentina and can only reiterate the things I have read about the man.
    From my viewpoint, his politics were distinguishable from fascism.
    It appears that there are different points of view on the subject.
    Here is one I lifted from Wiki.
    Perón's admiration for Benito Mussolini is well documented.[3] Many scholars categorize Peronism as a fascist ideology.[4] Carlos Fayt believes that Peronism was just “an Argentine implementation of Italian fascism”.[4] Hayes reaches the conclusion that “the Peronist movement produced a form of fascism that was distinctively Latin American”.[4]

    You are going to a great deal of time and trouble to transcribe figures from one medium to another, and then put your snide twist to it.

    This representation must mean a great deal to you, if you could have just pasted up a verifiable link to the information.

    Meanwhile, the reserves are there, the fish are there...

    Oil importers like Arg and Venzla are the ones suffering, because they can't lure investment or sell the oil they produce at a profit.

    Your populist model seems to be failing and discarded across SA

    So, without oil income the Falklands still run at a profit every year.

    And with all their limitless resources, especially a 3rd of the World's Shale gas reserves, how are Argentina doing then?

    55. One would think you'd be more concerned with YPF, 1 Yr % Change -43.92
    and Market Cap now only 6.9B.

    So Anses ( I guess that's who owns 51% now) lost U$4-5B depending on how you count it.
    I hope the Rg retirees like to pick up cardboard.
    That's all they're going to be able to do once the books are opened.
