During his participation Wednesday at the ceremony marking the commencement of the 2023-2024 Antarctic campaign, Economy Minister and presidential candidate Sergio Massa praised the role he envisions for the Armed Forces “in the defense of Argentine sovereignty” which constitutes a big challenge for the years to come from a “bicontinental” viewpoint.

    I struggle with, ''the same British who usurp the islands...'' which highlights the 'minds' of the Argentine politicians without any of them explaining what law was broken in 1833?

    Britain was ejecting a bunch of squatters in 1833 but if they insist on using that lame excuse of 'usurpation' for political gain then -

    Falklands Illegally Occupied?:

    “ the descendants of 1982 veterans were decreed to be entitled to inherit their ancestors' war pensions”
    If everyone could inherit their parents' and grandparents' old age pensions, it would solve Argentina's economic problems.
    (Possibly already official policy.)

    ”Argentina's sovereignty in the South Atlantic, in its islands and on the Antarctic continent, understanding the bicontinental logic of the country, poses a great challenge for the coming years,“

    Indeed. Understanding Argie fantasies is a great challenge for anyone who is not fully brainwashed by Argie propaganda.

    Bicontinental? Logic? Utter tosh.

    A fantasy map, unconfirmed by the UNCLOS and not recognised by any nation other than Argentina.

    Sovereignty a great challenge ahead says Massa, he should be extremely worried getting in to bed with China, Chinese ambitions are clear to see , As for the Falklands , no challenges or worries what so ever,

    Those who massacre Argentine sovereignty and people are the Westerners, not the Chinese.

    It was the USA who supported England in 1982, not China.

    Does any Argentine think that the USA is the good guy and China is the bad guy?

    If Argentina cannot discern who is a friend and an enemy, the solution to the economic problem will become increasingly distant.

    Clueless Brazilian, no Westerners have have massacred Argentine sovereignty at all, the USA did not support England, they reluctantly backed BRITAIN, a free democracy over an evil military junta who killed thousands of their own people ,,talk to the Philippines. Vietnam and Indonesia and the rest of the Pacific, talk to India about what they think about China, then go get an education an do some research, you have zero knowledge on world affairs.

    Frontal attack on my person, not on my thoughts.

    Submissive Asian who needs to emigrate to feel satisfied with his own mistakes.

    Don’t forget Chile. They supported the UK to regain the Falklands in 1982.

    Interesting coming from someone who couldn't handle cooking. Or what was the other reason that a surname like yours ended up there?

    Love the race baiting, Brasso, really highlights the attitudes you picked up from the Russians that “educated” you. No problems, your comments always bring a smile, if only that of the sardonic grin of a skull... ;)

    Well, it's not just me saying it, he has stated more than once that he went to school in Russia. Not exactly the best place to inculcate a respect for democracy...
