    @ 3 leonardocue

    I realize that you education under Peron and the K's was shit but if you had half-a-brain you could find out the truth about the Falkland Islands from the internet and independent written publications.

    Now piss off and let the grown ups' get on with their lives in peace.

    I was living in London and the people from uk are polite. So you are argentino like me, I know a lot about the facklands war. If the uk company had been able to extract in the island, it would have been different but is in the sea. Also is not my idea is a ONU decision. David Cameron said: the commission doesn't have jurisdiction to consider sovereignty issues. then I wonder who. Those are my reasons.

    @ 5 leonardocue

    Upon reflection I don't think you are an agfie, they would never use the word “facklands” but their 'M' word.

    The Lunatic of Chew Butt jumps to mind, he is stupid enough to think he is being clever posting in this pathetic manner.

    The only problem 'leonardocue' is that you are using the Arg. Continental shelf submission to try and tell us what the UN has agreed.

    What you should do is use the UN 'Summary of Recommendations' (link half way down page) in URL below

    Page 20 fig.3 shows what the Committee were able to consider. Which is 2/5's of 5/8's of FA. And that is all you will ever get now. A little bit off the tip of T del F and the Rio de la Plata Craton.

    But you are no doubt a sock puppet. You really must try harder!

    The UN has not granted Argentina any extension to their continental shelf near Antarctica or around the Falklands, but to the North of the Falklands.

    If you have a problem with this, go to the ICJ, with all your false historical evidence which you call vivez criolla but which in fact is manufactured history, i.e lies, which would be unravelled at the ICJ in minutes.
