    Wonder why they have never listened to the people of the Falkland Islands and their wishes. Of I keep forgetting we are not a colony, we are a subject of sovereignty. Maybe they need to remove us completely from this false committee because we as stated are not a colony but one that Argentina wants to impose on us. They want us to be a colony of Argentina because face facts we are not attached to their land mass. Never have been.

    So when are they going to start talking about all the Ukraine territories invaded since 2014 in colonised Russian territory. Then we have Tibet invaded in 1950, Xijiang and the genocide going on there in colonised Chinese territories.
    Russia and China the twor greatest Empires of today are among the “decolonisers” in the C24.. could you believe it?

    Did the Fourth recommend the Special Committee's Falklands resolution for adoption by the General Aseembly? Did it? Did it? Did it?


    Special Committee hasn't recommended their own Falklands resolution for adoption since 1999. A farce. A pantomime. Just to deceive the gullible Argies.

    Funny old world ;-)

    Once “freed,” these countries will face civil unrest similar to Haiti and Somalia, and then they'll request UN peacekeeping troops to end the violence. Then they'll sue the UN for forcing post-post-colonialist ideaologies on them. Much as Lula claims The World Bank “forced” the $44 billion aid package on Argentina -- that is, in giving them what they ask for makes you the criminal. The UN is now just a hit man for third-world countries rather than preventing WW III between first-world states, as it was meant to be.

    “Barack Obama had reportedly tapped Brazil's president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, to be the next head of the World Bank.”
