    uhu ... and ?
    By the way. Two days ago Fernandez at the United Nations spoke of many important global issues, brought up scores of points to do with global relations, its economy, collaboration in the health sector, in the finance sector, he spoke of much needed reform and suggested higher purposes for the United Nations. And Yet all Merco Press ever has to say about Argentina's participation at the U.N. is that it reiterated its call for talks regarding its sovereignty claim to the Malvinas Islands, as this publication does every year. But then, it resoundingly denies to be founded and functioning on the bases of any Falkland Islands political agenda by using Mercosur as its suggestive backdrop, hiding its true motives within its offices in Uruguay, when it doesn't even want to admit the islands are part of South America, that they were grabbed away from the Argentine, or that they sit in the Argentine Sea and Continental Shelf, reluctant to publish any constructive news from Argentina, but rush to print defaming suggestiveness whenever possibly seeming relevant.

    “Argentine, or that they sit in the Argentine Sea and Continental Shelf”
    Under the Palmas decision, three important rules for resolving island territorial disputes were decided:
    Firstly, title based on contiguity has no standing in international law.
    International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the North Sea continental shelf cases, in which Denmark and the Netherlands based their claim inter alia on the doctrine of proximity, i.e., that the part of the continental shelf closest to the part of the state in question falls automatically under that state's jurisdiction. In these cases the ICJ rejected any contiguity type of approach. As for continuity, it is argued, the 1958 Geneva Convention on the Continental Shelf and Contiguous Zone, Article 1, now contained in the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention, Article 76, does not support the view that coastal states have sovereignty over islands above the continental shelf. On the contary it laid down doctrine that islands had their own “continental shelves,” p.74

    As I pointed out before, much of international law today including the UCJ was spun by British interest and the self serving interest of the colonial powers that created the United Nations, who naturally are not interested at all in elaborating the aspect of geographical contiguousness . And yet, contiguity as demonstrated by human history is one of the pillars of sovereign sensibility natural human ethics, psychology and efficacy or practicality. What could be more natural to sovereign right that a land's proximity to one's own feet?? So logically this aspect that could have well formed one of the principal elements of international sovereignty criteria to be put on the table among the world's nations in the creation of law, was intensely down played and only mentioned lightly as it is not at all convenient to the nations who through the use of military power and wealth are in a position to grab far away land that little has to do with their societies and cultures.

    “As I pointed out before, much of international law ... What could be more natural to sovereign right that a land's proximity to one's own feet?” If wishes were horses beggars would ride, well isn't, and Argentina is bound by those precepts. Unless she planning on trying for the best out of five?

    So to buy a toilet roll in Uruguay, you would need a wheelbarrow full of Argy Peso notes, hummm.

    Cheaper and easier to wipe your arse with the notes.

    TiTMonde (He’s a complete TiT)
    The Falklands are not S. American, they are part of the British Territories of the S. Atlantic/Antarctic.

    They are on the S. American continental shelf where the Argy EEZ ends 200 n/miles from the S. American coast.

    As for the Argentine sea, is this somewhere near the Sea of Tranquillity? Because it’s nowhere here on Earth.

    “What could be more natural to sovereign right that a land's proximity to one's own feet??”

    Wow....your feet must be bloody long ....250 miles long ? there used to be a nutcase on here who lived in Mendoza, and was against everything, even though he couldn't change it....he also had enormous feet...are you a relative of his ?

    Anyway, I believe you have missed a very important detail, perhaps the only one that matters - there already are a lot of feet standing firmly on the Falkland's....and they do not belong to Argies.

    Noticed you called Terry “sweetheart”......is this the beginning of a very special relationship, you know, one in which you slap each other around in public, then make it up later, in private ?

    But your question “Who do you think the world belongs to?” is interesting.....I'll risk an answer ...how about a few hundred billionaires, dozens of gigantic multinationals ??

    TiTMonde, just a word of advice, for free - nothing is going to change just because you want it to, least of all in Argentina....so stop whining.

    “You stick to opining, as the facts are never on your side.”

    What facts ? I wasn't talking about facts, just the ridiculous comment by TitMonde about 'land's proximity to one's own feet'....

    Or maybe.....the fact that I exposed the very special relationship between the two of you.....is that that what transformed you into your usual, nasty self ? WAFI.

    Just fyi, not that it'll do much good.....military anyday, over commies....and your Lulla Doll.
