    Why does this remind many of us of a failed republic?

    “Two things only the people anxiously desire — bread and circuses. The government kept the Roman populace happy by distributing free food and staging huge spectacles.”

    Today's lunch is tuna melt sandwiches on sourdough bread with potato salad accompanied with Chardonnay wine.

    Argentine politician can't admit that the Falklands aren't Argentinian. Their constitution forbids it.

    This gentleman reminds me of Bolsonaro. If so, he's a Nazi. And like all Nazis, he cannot be trusted.

    Write: at some point he will be capable of anything to obtain weapons and cause a disaster in the south of the continent.

    In the west, clowns wear red and white face paint.

    In Brazil, clowns wear green and black face paint.

    They're still really funny!

    In England it must be easier to recognize a clown, right? Just look in the mirror.

    Milei says:

    ”my government is going to be a government that respects liberty, the liberal democracy and peace”

    Milie says:

    “in such a process we can't leave out those people who live in the Islands, we must include the interests of people living in the Islands”

    From this kind of talking, it becomes certain:

    Milei is a Nazi.

    Imagine you needed flat-earthers to vote for you, you cant come out and say they are thick as mince and the earth is clearly spherical, you have to start slowly.....Milei knows the Malvinas myth is horseshite believed only by imbeciles....but he needs some of them to vote for him.

    Apparently, the Lady is for turning .....

    .... and backpedalling.

    Highly amusing. Just needs the Islanders to now remind all Argie candidates, that they have an effective veto. On any agreements, and indeed, on any talks.

    Inconvenient truths of the Islas Malvinas # 27

    The covert British attempts to create a self-government independent state in our Islas Malvinas is not only ridiculous, but pitiful. Your fake referendum is invalid. No sovereignty, no decision can be made. Simply as that.

    I have come to discover here how multifaceted British are. One of them, is how vicious they can be when trying to impose their line of thoughts, fabricated historical facts, or, simply, pushing their own agenda.

    I've started to appreciate their polite, dry sense of humor too, particularly when they characterize Milei as a‘nazi’. Did you know of his admiration for Judaism? He’s studying the Torah, and will convert to Judaism as soon as he is ready, according to his own declarations.

    Had a great laugh when reading your comments. You made my day!

    You are one very silly little girl, spouting nothing but nonsense and fabrications, grow up for goodness sake, we could not care less who you leader is, it has no relevance what so ever,
    who cares what invisible man in the sky he believes in, you have made my day by posting the most ridiculous post on this thread, you reap what you sow, and you deserve to be ridiculed, go get an education about the real world, not the la la land you live in

    “ covert British attempts to create a self-government independent state in our Islas”

    Actually, HeavyGoods, you can blame the United Nations for that one with their Resolution 1514. The British Foreign Office was quite happy to limit the islanders government until the UN put its oar in.

    ”The Malvinas (Falkland) Islands are Argentine, and sovereignty non-negotiable, ... Britain had a similar situation with China over Hong Kong”

    They did not as is clearly shown,at the end of a lease. Was thus returned to the legitimate owners.

    While the truth about the Islands under international law is clearly shown here.
