    Been very active has he ?, what like putting little flags on little maps, I have no doubt Brazil is sick to death of your whinging about your imaginary claim to the Falklands,

    I think he will find that there are not enough ex “Argentinos” who now have Brazilian Citizenship to influence the Presidential election.
    This will be the real reason “The Big B” will not be attending any meeting with Guillermo Carmona.

    ‘a seminar on “Bi-continental and Oceanic Argentina: Malvinas, Antarctica and the South Atlantic”’.

    ‘discuss issues related to the South Atlantic and some existing treaties’.

    Marvellous, and worth every penny, for sure, no doubt about that.

    Another meeting to discuss what they would do, IF (laconic) they had control of the territory.

    Although no doubt there will be an update on progress to the exercise of full Argentinian sovereignty over the region.

    Like a new design of poster for the trains/busses, or little china figurines of S. Georgia/S. Sandwich Islands featuring Penguins looking for a home.

    And similar worthy contributions to the cause.

    Probably no update on Chilean helicopter movements though.

    I think he will get much “lip-service” from the countries he visits. But then nothing really happens. They do not care, but they just say they do to make the Argies happy for a while. Better if they said: “mind your own business, we are not involved”.

    What a dick head he and his cronies are. I bet the Beazillians will as usual be diplomatic with the prat but behind the scenes they will be saying go to hell.
    Fighting a loosing battle. The islanders have the final say in their future not some pumped up dipstick like him.

    Mr. Lorton..., me dear Engrish copper...

    You say above...
    - “No new plan then?”

    I say...:
    - With the Anglosphere currently pushing its luck on so many fronts..., I Tænk the best plan for us Argies would be to Sit by the River Plate whilst listening to the second album released by “The DRONES” and Wait for the Bodies of Our Enemies to Float By...

    Btw..., copper...
    Do you perhaps happen to know anything 'bout this Bangkok Farang...?

    T, so now we are enemies ?, Anglo sphere pushing its luck ?
    Sit by the river waiting ?. Argentina will still be waiting long after you and I are dead and buried, Anglosphere has nothing to fear from anyone, and by the way Biden is not an Anglo, neither are Kamala Harris ,Pelosi and Schummer, the only enemies the Argentine people have are their corrupt lying politicians,
    yet another bizarre post,

    The difference T , is we all know the current British government is corrupt and lies, but you are so indoctrinated from birth that you cant see the wood from the trees, and yes you finally admit it you are barking mad,

    Or, sit by the river Dnipro and watch the Kacap float by.

    Oh, and don’t mention DRONES, or HIMARS for that matter.

    And best not plan any holidays in Crimea any time soon.
