Argentina might be in the midst of a major political and cabinet conflict of yet unknown consequences, but certainly not positive given the precarious situation of the economy, but there is always time to address the claim obsession, Malvinas Islands. Read full article

    - As it has been discussed in here previously..., the “Foradori - Duncan Agreement” has been dead and buried since sweet Sir Duncan snitched on his drinking buddie..., Sr. Foradori some months ago...

    That..., of course..., also includes ALL military cooperation between them Argie and Sassenach Armed Farces...:,in%20Oxfordshire%20in%202019%2D20.

    Argentina can dream on. We will never allow an Argentine commercial flagged aircraft to establish a business route to and from the islands. What we are able to do though is refuse any Argentines access to our country untill they drop the illegal claim they persist with.
    We will never again allow Argentina to bully us. We dont need them . We will develope in a way that we want not what a foreign country with desires on us want. Those days are long gone.
    Argentina has to change its ways if it wants peace in the south Atlantic.

    What,s new Think? Anyone with half a brain new that the Latam SaoPaolo route was not going to reopen after the pandemic for about 18 months anyway - your Govt has been making that clear regularily,- old stale news today.
    The one thing that will NOT be happening is an AA flight from anywhere and if Carmona thinks it will - they he has also joined the “half-brain” club!
    Oil - well IF the industry decides the price is right and the demand is there - it will happen in our waters around the Islands. And until and unless the Industry calculates the above - it will not happen - bugger all to do with your side actually.

    Mr. Timlander1...
    What's new Think? ..., you ask...???

    I say...:
    Well..., for starters...:
    A) Since when did you knew 'bout the UKstani Armed Farces training the Argie Armed Farces..., huhhhh...?

    B) If you are sooooooo AA allergic..., we could always agree to revive the good auld LADE times... ;-)

    C) Oil - When the Oil Industry calculates the feasibility of Malvinas Oil..., we Argies are a omnipresent psychasthenial migraine... You Kelpers better forget 'bout that...

    D) My above comment was..., anyway..., more oriented to them “Taliban Kelpers”..., some of whom are on record here at MercoPress saying that if they didn't get their Sao Paulo flight back..., they would feed the fish with our lads remains at Darwin...

    Not quite Cricket of them...
    Don't ya Tænk...?

    What a laugh.. The Argentine government insissted that they allowed flights into the Falkland Islands.

    He knows so much that he does not even know where the flight lands!

    As for Tænk's comments - when you talk money and profit the oil and gas companies wil come running. After all what can they do about it. Complain, shout, throw their toys out of teh pram?

    Of course - court action ..... how many have appeared in court so far?

    Also when the next Argentine aircraft, ship or submarine goes missing, who you gonna call?

    The reintroduction of the Lan flight is a good thing, also that he next of kin can visit the graves of their families. Just a shame that we wil also have to tolerate the idiots and indoctrinated too...

    Sr Carmona is talking to his own devotees here, so it has to sound like he/they are doing something and having an effect, they are important players in events.

    Hence, ‘continue to demand’, ‘national interest’ (always a good one), ‘because we insisted’ and my particular favourite ‘we consolidate our presence in the austral area of the country and we effectively exercise sovereignty’.

    And they wonder why there is a British military presence in the region.

    In truth, the only part they played in the ‘resumed LATAM weekly flight’ was agreeing to it.

    But they can’t say that.

    As for ‘military training’, wont be long now before the Argys are asking, urgently and prepared to do a deal, for training in counter insurgency methods and equipment, to contain the ever growing insurrection in Walmapu.

    Unless of course we decide to supply the other side, a few hundred NLAW and a few dozen StarStreak missiles, would make all the difference.

    It won't happen, poor old Bill Carmona trying to justify his non-job. Does this mean that next time a submarine is lost we won't lift a finger to help? Of course it doesn't because we are better than that. I think Bill is harking back to the dark days of the Junta and trying to stop people noticing the spiraling debt and inflation.

    And the Anglo Brainwashed Turnips continue with their charades...

    Turnip above says...:
    - “Does this mean that next time a submarine is lost we won't lift a finger to help? Of course it doesn't because we are better than that.”

    I say...:
    - That story with the Argie submarine was a pathetic charade of the Argie and the Engrish Armed Farces...
    - At the time the Engrish arrived..., everybody that “mattered” knew that the Argie crew was long dead...
    - As a matter of fact..., the sub's wreck had been localized some days before by a Shilean Navy vessel...

    - Hereby..., one TRUE Argie rescue operation still on me mind..., that DOESN'T MEAN that we Argies are better than anyone...:

    Don’t think they have any operating Subs left to have to worry about.
