    Dear friends, obtaining title to territory by carrying out illegal invasions was outlawed in 1945 in the wake of Mr. A. Hitler. You aspire to this?

    The only mode of resolving territorial conflicts is via the relevant court.

    Is Argentina afraid that her Falklands claim will be exposed?

    What is there to commemorate when an Army of Fascist Soldiers are sent to a peaceful Island ! I feel Sorry for those that lost there Lives for this meaningless Conflict, But it is a Pointless Goal to carry on claiming the Falklands as they will NEVER get them by peaceful means !!!!
