    Indeed they do already have a flag
    I recall what one Falklander said in response to hearing Hector Timerman's prediction - in February 2013 - that the islands would be Argentine within twenty years. The Falklander responded “They've got more chance of putting their flag up on the moon than putting it up here”.

    So funny for the southern cone clown show to be arguing about which flag is never going to fly over the Falklands!

    Funny thing is, the Islands have never belonged to Argentina so how can they possibly claim them?

    The Argies are going to have to find a way to conquer, and hold, the Falklands before they will need to argue about which flag to fly over them. They never have been much on getting things in the proper order.

    When you think things can't become any more stupid....they do. But then again, I'm referring to the fanatical Argies.

    There is more chance of me winning the Eurovision Song Contest than there is of that rag flying on any British territory never mind the FALKLAND ISLANDS.

    I wondewr how they can be so stupid as to repeat the looser arguments.

    The Argentinos I know here in Mendoza just shake their heads and say that the country has real problems to solve.
