Wow, it looks so tiny and remote. I wished we could find interesting wildlife like Penguins near my town, they're cute.

Oh dear. I feel like I've fallen into the 80s. Argentina surrendered by the way.

So what are you saying? The USA was wrong to join WW2? Britain/France were wrong to declare war on the Nazis?
Presumably not.
Let's stick to the point.
Not exactly a 'skyscraper city' but Stanley looks a nice place.

My home was invaded many at time, and its up to us islanders
to decide our relationship and its the British Crown!

We have the right to self determination!


(Jersey street is in port Stanley to remember large amount of $$$$ jersey
gave to a fellow crown dependency)

Britian and Argentina keep out, our relationship is with the crown and not the
above. ( sometimes its hard for people to understand this)

but thanks to UK for protecting our freedoms and self determination.

Maybe we should agree to disagree. Officially it belongs to the British Crown. The residents want to remain under the British Crown. Argentinians unsupringsly want them as thier own. The fact is however that they are Islands along long way from either country. They are known as the Falklands and the Falklands are what they shall be called until otherwise said.

Nice looking place. Id love to live near penguins.

In my opinion islands are Argentinian, Brits have just occupied it. brits are a long way from their island and need to stay away!
