    Funny how some writers and articles still write Port Stanley or mix with and without prefix. In this article they even have the picture of the name to guide them and they still get it wrong.

    This man was wrong the name of the program: it is walks through Argentina.
    Of course, the islands of the South Atlantic plus the rest of the Argentine Patagonia are unmissable, incredible places.
    To your list you must add:
    The Bolson
    San martin de los andes.
    Valdez Peninsula
    Villa La Angostura.
    Traful Villa
    El Chaltén
    It has all the landscapes you want or can imagine.
    Know your country, know Argentina.

    “The islands of the South Atlantic plus the rest of the Argentine” Sorry your a Johny come lately, history is not on your side.

    “Captain Cook claimed South Georgia for Britain on 17 January 1775. His journal states: ”I landed at three different
    places, displayed our colours, and took possession of the country in his majesty's name, under a discharge of small
    ”The South Shetlands were claimed for Britain by Edward Bransfield in 1820, and George Powell claimed the South Orkneys for Britain in 1821.”

    This was Argentina in 1855 MoreCrap.

    Everything added since then has been stolen. Argentina's current pretensions are indicative of its future hopes to steal more.

    Its map is irrelevant, the important thing is that the islands are occupied by Spain since 1764 and Argentina since 1820 and were usurped by Britons in 1833.

    Malvinense 1833
    “Were usurped by Britons in 1833.”
    They weren't, another lie by you, which is absolutely no surprise just more viveza criolla.
    “As late as 1886 the Secretary of State found it necessary to inform the Argentine Government that as ”the resumption of actual occupation of the Falkland Islands by Great Britain in 1833 took place under a claim of title which had been previously asserted and maintained by that Government, it is not seen that the Monroe Doctrine, which has been invoked on the part of the Argentine Republic, has any application to the case. By the terms in which that principle of international conduct was announced, it was expressly excluded from retroactive operation.”

    Argentina did not 'occupy' in 1820 MoreCrap. A German businessman set up a settlement in 1826 which received covert Buenos Airean support in 1828 before BA made public its pretensions in 1829. The USA threw them off in December, 1831. The UK threw them off in January, 1833.

    Occupation has to be 'effective', MoreCrap.

    Getting thrown off is not 'effective'.

    Roger seems strange to me a brexiter who lives in Thailand, in the same way that you give the idea of ​​knowing Argentina if you were never there and Mark Kent told you, I'm surely not as intelligent as you. but I don't disrespect you.

    Gullible, you have a strange fascination with my politics and location; neither of which are relevant. Why would I need to visit Argentina. There is nothing there that appeals. What do you think Mark Kent told me?

    I will agree with you regarding intelligence, as by your idiotic posts you disrespect only yourself. A form of self-abuse perhaps?

    My nick is guillote and you are clearly what you look like, standing on a ponny, and attacking, when I never attacked you.

    What kent told you is that you talk about Argentina and you were never.
    And yes,for me talking from thailand about some issues es ridiculo

    Good life

    You did attack me with your references to Thailand, which is entirely irrelevant to the subject in hand. No, Kent did not tell me that I could not have an opinion without visiting Argentina.

    You will always be Gullible to me ;-)
