    The islands belong to Argentina. We will give a period of 02 years for you to give back the Islands.
    This is an ultimatum!
    If we are not met we will block for air, land and sea the Islands. And if any ship, sub or missile approaching at a distance of 3000 kilometers, we will destroy the world into a last war.

    Get ready for war!

    @ 7 Surely you understand that “Malvinas Argentinas” is a mainland town located near the centre of Córdoba province. It was given that name to remind all argentos that there is a world of difference and distance between the village called Malvinas Argentinas and the British Overseas Territory commonly known as the Falkland Islands.

    You are full of it!

    You talk like an Argentine, are you sure that you are not an Argentine?

    If Brasshole is Brasilian, maybe he should be more concerned about the ongoing corruption scandals racking Brasil and Petrobras.

    @3. Just as a tip, Brasso, the United Kingdom, on its own, has more combat aircraft, vessels and nuclear missiles than Brazil. Worth noting that a lot of navy vessels are only for use on rivers. Be careful what you wish for. You might start something and then have to watch us finish it. And just imagine if an ally of ours, local to you, were to get involved.
    @7. Anything intelligent to say?

    “We will give a period of 02 years for you to give back the Islands.”

    That is more optimistic than Hepatia's ' in 25 years time-forever and ever'

    “Get ready for war!”

    The UK armed forces are always ready for war, that is their purpose.

    Your basic training starts and finishes with how to wave a white flag and run as fast as you can , away from the enemy.

    Oh and if you want to have a pop, good luck with getting out of it unscathed as that's your best case scenario.

    How much of your rainforest have you destroyed today?

    @ 16 gordo1

    I laughed so much at your post that my wife asked why all the hilarity?

    So I showed her your post and explained that you know I am an atheist.

    “Tell him he's an idiot from me”!

    So it's unanimous then!

    @ 19 Fatty01

    Do you remember when you asked why I nicked you Fatty01 and I replied I thought you understood Jibber-jabber? (Gordo being fat)

    Neither my wife or me are buffoons though, as an RCC adherent, you are clearly delusional to the point of idiocy.

    Lose your grip on the skirt of 'she who must be obeyed', have you?

    Argentina belongs to Spain...you stole it from them and they want it back....God knows why.

    Are you assembling your Airfix and Tamiya plastic kits from your toy box ?
    That's the only things you have.

    Don't stay up too late. Children need their sleep.
