Guillote, according to my dictionary the holding and control of an area by a foreign military force = OCCUPATIONJun 14th, 2020 - 12:59 pm - Link - Report abuse +1
10,000 Argentine troops = foreign Military
Falkland islands = Area
10,000 Argentina troops holding the Falkland Islands = OCCUPATION

As far as the inhabitants, the people who the islands belongs to, are concerned, it was a foreign military occupation, which was not just an act of aggression but was an act of war.
Whether you “see it as aggression” or not, invading someone else’s territory generally leads to war.
Gullible - the UN recognised Argentina's invasion as an 'occupation' in SC Resolution 502. Hence the instruction from the SC that Argentina should leave.Jun 14th, 2020 - 11:42 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

On the other thread you insult me an my country, because all I actually do is to provide employment for my fellow campesinos — that help me provide superfood avocados and delicious grapes for a hungry world.
What have you done for your country or contributed to the world? — Really, what do you do Guillote in contributing to your society?
Despite some unfortunate actions, General Pinochet saved my country from a similar fate of Venezuela. He also left a legacy of one the most progressive and prosperous, economically stable Democratic countries.
They say a rising tide raises all boats, which was complicated by the enthusiastic immigration policies of our previous 'well-meaning' socialist president — that has flooded my country with a large influx of unskilled workers from Haiti. This has been problematic for average income wages of the lower income classes, but sadly excellent for employers utilizing seasonal laborers.
So what should I do Guillote? Complain?
Gullible - Argentina occupies an area that does not belong to it. All of Argentina, in fact. You are living on stolen land.Jun 15th, 2020 - 06:10 am - Link - Report abuse 0

The island belong to the inhabitants, The UK defend them against foreign aggression, at the behest of the islanders.
Argentina will have to be content with the land they have already stolen from the native S. Americans.
Everywhere further south is already taken.
