    If the claim is so good, why have successive Argentine governments not taken the claim to the ICJ?
    And why did not Argentina fund the demining project if the Falklands are theirs?
    I guess any humanitarian flights should be off the cards in the future for Argentina? No more charter flights of veterans and their families? No more visits to the Argentine Military Cemetery.
    They should set an example.

    I agree with you “Fitzroy”, Argentina has for too long enjoyed the “Zone of Comfort” (Love that saying by the way) and with this Pandemic in full swing the Islanders have been able to keep Argentina's so called Veterans out saving a lot of aggravation for the Citizens of the Falklands.

    Regretfully for them Anglo Turnips in here “alleging” a lot of things..., Uruguay is a very nice and little Country..., carpeted by Argies and Yoruguas that have wastly documented each and every one of those unexplainable Engrish military flight landing in Uruguay between 2016 and 2019...

    Nothing “alleged” 'bout them...
    Just plain auld Engrish Colonial Haughtiness...
    Constantly abusing and disrespecting the terms“ Medevac” and “Humanitarian Transport”...

    Oh gosh Stink, it is almost as if those dastardly Uruguayans are not “batting straight”, old chap!

    Could it be that they are (not so) secretly adding and abetting???

    I shudder to “think”, it’s a challenge I know, but at least try it, eh!

    One could almost “think”, if one were being somewhat un-charitable, that they didn’t like you spoon thieving Creole Planter Bastards.

    Of course they wouldn’t help those “Engrish Pirates” occupy your, as yet un-stolen, S. Atlantic/Antarctica, oh no, no, no.

    It’s just a paperwork mix up, I’m sure you understand, like your Tax Returns, an honest mistake Gov, honest!

    Don’t worry, they will pass another “Resolution” at the next MurcoWtEvr meeting in support of whatever FuDge wording can be mustered.

    Chulkle, chuckle.

    “Uruguay is a very nice and little Country..., carpeted by Argies and Yoruguas that .....”

    That pretty well sums up the patronising attitude that Argentine has towards any country or people that it regards as smaller and therefore inferior.

    Argentine tries to exploit when it perceives weakness and cowers before strength.

    Given the embargo that Argentina tries to impose on communication between the Falklands and the rest of the world, all flights into and out of the Falklands are humanitarian in nature.

    Argentina claims the own much land of other nations from the old Spanish and Portuguese Colonial times. We must look at the always claiming by la Argentine Swindlers as Mujica rightly called them. These robbers who had tried to claim land in en Chile, The Falkerlands as well as Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil and even our river territory in Uruguay! Really, is there no neighbor you can get along with and not claim there lands? You even twist the tails of Brtian and Brazil.

    I'm happy Pou will be saying Bienvenido a Uruguay to your richest people. What is the future? 100,000 big tax payers gone, all at the beach of Lungs del Este. You do not understand, Grouchos have no friends in sudamerica. You make no friends just argue all the time. Your presidente Kirchner sounded of like a puta, wanting to war with Britain. She wanted to send your young men to die. What for,? You think you take on a world power and win? You have no ships. Do not think we do not no you a trying to be China's puta. Then what? Brazil Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay will not let you have them build a military base, you were told by La unión de naciones sudamericanas not to let them into your country. Do you believe other sudamerica nations will allow it or will USA not.

    Please my friends to the sourh. Make friends with everyone. Get your people fed and stop these silly claims on land that belongs to others already. You cannot feed the people in Buenos Aires with out taking on new citizens

    There are things that happen when there is a dispute and someone in London does not understand it, and the dispute will continue, although a poor mediocre self-proclaimed historian, very mediocre on Twitter, along with other poor mediocre people who no one knows where they live, say that everything is fine :)

    It is totally irrelevant if Uruguay supports Argentina or not, what matters is the people who live there and have lived there for generations, I think Uruguay is totally indifferent to the Falklands, no such place as Malvinas,

    Thunk, Uruguay always supports Argentina's spurious sovereignty claims during the annual Mercosur summit. What is that exactly? A day? A week? What Argentina needs, is for Uruguay to support its nonsense pretensions throughout the rest of the year.

    Get it?

    Argentina ‘alleges’ that the flights are routing via Uraraguay when it knows that they are. It does not have the courage to confront the situation directly. Typical evasive, mealy mouthed Argentine diplomacy.

    Ah, Argentina complains, Uruguay says “oh really let us check that”, the non-existent flights continue.

    Coz they are such strong supporters of Argentina.

    If there was another war they would almost certainly, secretly, help the British.

    I mean, “dispute between Montevideo and Buenos Aires, which dates back to over 200 years”, really!!!
