    Regini, your post wandered off the subject and ended up having nothing to do with the topic, like it does so many times , so yes gibberish, we all know all governments lie and are corrupt and self serving and that includes your lot too, Neither Spain or France have ever said they claimed the islands first, clearly they did not, only Argentina says they did, strange that isnt it, Britains claim to the Falklands was long before you ever existed as a country, the claim was never given up, the Malvinas myth is just that a myth based on a pack of lies,
