    For us in South America we found that the islands should belong to Argentina. The willingness of other countries and continents are mere accessories.

    We will wait all the world's time for the Malvinas back to our America.

    Pssst, Brasshole. ..... The Falklands are British, eh?

    And the silly notions of the sudaca backwaters are of no consequence to anyone of any significance.

    Yet we will continue fighting. Even I did not see the US flag in the picture.

    “Malvinas son Argentinas” not British. British are invaders and pirates!

    I'm not surprised, but I'm glad to hear that Canada will continue to officially and unofficially support the Falkland Islands and the concept of Self Determination.

    There is an interesting parallel off the coast of Canada. Two islands ( on the “Canadian continental shelf”, St Pierre and Miquelon hold French sovereignty, yet they are only a stone's throw across the water from our Maritimes provinces in the East.
    As far as I know, we have not tried to invade them or claim them at the C24

    Good to see another country supporting freedom and democracy. Falklands remains a beacon in the region.

    I think is fair to say that no matter how much Mr. Summers travel or pay people to go to Malvinas to gain support, the only “country” that supports him is Pocklington.

    7. Your concept of democracy is very limited. And when democracy is restricted it becomes dictatorship.

    Viva Donald Trump!

    Marcos seems to be trading from last year's script, again.

    Can one of the Trolls please update him?

    Brassiere seems to agree with the “Luci” Fred.

    I do not usually trust people who have English as their native language. Yankeeboy and Lucifer at least are not grayed out.
    They are honest to their values. Even though these values are, in most cases, disgusting to the eyes of the world.

    It seems Argentina is losing its allies and support,

    more and more are supporting the Falkland's,
    well, seeing as brazil is in a mess, perhaps they may pay Argentina a visit to distract from its home troubles,

    Brazil and Argentina have gathered in a political, administrative, legal and labor union for us Brazilians / Lusitanians would be an honor.

    Yet you don't go to the ICJ, with all the overwhelming support you claim you have. The yadder yadder, without action really means you haven't got it.

    The Falkland Islanders deserve to live in peace. I wish Argentina all the peace and happiness in their own country.
