Specifically United Nations Security Council Resolution 502 which is bona fide international law; and the UN charter (Article 51) permitted the UK’s military response as a matter of lawful self-defence
They can place that on display along with all their other illegitimate claims.

Ahhh, how quaint, something to remind them each session that they still don’t control the Islands.Feb 26th, 2022 - 10:41 am - Link - Report abuse +3
Perhaps bowing towards the bench when they file in?
A friend of mine here in Uruguay told me that when a workman tells you he will be there Mañana en la mañana it means When hell freezes over. I think this legitimate occupant will not be arriving until mañana en la mañana.Feb 26th, 2022 - 11:34 am - Link - Report abuse +5

Always some new interesting stunts. What could they more invent? Appoint a mayor of Puerto Argentino (well paid for his non-work of course)? Issue number-plates for the vehicles on the F.I.? Build up a shadow administration for the Islands, sitting in Ushuaia issuing non-enforceable ordinances?Feb 26th, 2022 - 01:56 pm - Link - Report abuse +2
We are Narnia? Your country has royal pageantry and ridiculously adorned rituals being replicated since the16th century beyond even what Disneyland comes up with, of exorbitant costs, with jeweled crowns and rigidly impractical uniforms costing millions of euros which are absurdly too heavy to wear, weddings funerals and coronations that could forever feed the hungry and homeless children of Africa and Latin America combined! All while you dump every year millions of dollars into keeping the world at war, fascinated by the latest civilization killing weaponry your society's culture comes up with, still thinking of yourselves as a Royal Empire with more right to the world than anyone else! Oh, but we are Narnia! LOL LOL LOL LOL TRY AGAIN! lol lol lolFeb 26th, 2022 - 02:50 pm - Link - Report abuse -7

We are reminded that over 55 percent of the children in Argen-Narnia are currently living in poverty. Perhaps the monies spent on the phony Mock Malvinas Madness could be better spent on feeding its own.
Likely won't happen since the nARnia peso is crashing towards nothingness and inflation there in going to be well over 50 percent this year.
Better start learning the Mandarin of your new masters.

It is unfair to call Argentina Narnia.
If you follow the work of CS Lewis, Argentina is more like Charn than Narnia
The early Emperors and Empresses of Charn were kind and decent, but through the passage of the centuries, their lineage devolved into one of malevolence, corruption, evil, and despair, seeing their subjects only as a means to an end.
You are one of those subjects Trimonde, used by successive Peronist governments as a useful idio to parrot their propaganda as Argentina slumps further and further down the world league of GDP.
but of course if only you had the Falkands all would be better!!! LOL!
Monkeymagic, Trimonde doesn't read Lewis, he's too busy rereading Peron's old speeches. He seems rather like the subject of The Screwtape Letters.Feb 28th, 2022 - 08:54 am - Link - Report abuse +1

If you lose a war, you have to turn the page and move on.
Much of Argentina, especially in the southern part, there are descendants of English, Welsh, Irish, Scottish, for many years.
It must be remembered that many Argentine successes are also due to their collaboration, the English presence in the islands has given rise to development, conservation, so many rare virtues unobtainable throughout South America.
It is necessary to meditate on these details, for the empty bench could be a good idea invite to the same Council Members of the current government of the island to give lessons on how to govern a Country.
I can't imagine better management other than the current one, honestly. The golden years of Argentina was rich in the English presence and their collaboration, since 1982 we have lost the compass.
