In recent years Beijing has incorporated itself into the Falkland Islands sovereignty dispute debate between UK and Argentina siding with its South American increasingly political, financial and trade partner. Read full article
Maybe this Chinese scholar should get a VPN and look up “The Falklands War” and also see the state of the Argentine navy which only has 1 fully active warship (a corvette)
Argentina’s constitution destroys her claim to the Falklands.
Falklands - The Futility of Negotiating Sovereignty With Argentina (1 pg) : https://www.academia.edu/57344689/Falklands_The_Futility_of_Negotiating_Sovereignty_With_Argentina
An inconvenient truth ...
There is a Strong chance that China as part of its Belts & Braces Loan system that they could provide Ships & Aircraft to Argentina. As Argentina`s army is a Professional Force just Very poorly equipped ! it would be a strong distraction for Britain away from the South China Sea and Taiwan.
Why on earth are the PRC and the CCP interested in the Malvinas Question at all? It is an insignificant conflict on the other side of the world. Well, perhaps it has it to with the fact that they also want to conquer an island off their coast. Taiwan is China´s Falklands. PRC threatens with use of force to retake Taiwan. As a military superpower with nuclear weapons they could do it, but to a high cost. So I do not think they will try it. Argentina has already tried a stupid thing back in -82. I do not think they dare to make another invasion.
The abuses committed by Western powers against China will not go unanswered.
Remember: these tiny islands are not safe.
The greatest abuses against the Chinese people were committed by the Communist regime under the great chairman Mao. Starvation, cultural revolution etc etc. Probably killed more of his own people than Hitler & Stalin combined.
The PROC (China) is long overdue to start its own process of decolonization.
Perhaps they should start with Tibet?
They can release Argentina, later.
Brasilero… What have the Falkland Islands done to China?
Also the Western powers “abuses” happened more than a century ago and the most atrocious things that happened to the Chinese people happened during the Communist Mao’s reign.
The Uyghurs, Tibetans, Hong Kongers and a score of other ethnic minorities in Chinese occupied territory have a different story to tell.
And the abuses being carried out today, in Brazil, against the native peoples, shall that go unanswered.
Free Amazonia, arm the Indians.
England / UK need to recognize Tibet and Taiwan and give them an free Embassy in London, THAT will do Beijing the world of good!
