This Falklands bullshit has been going on for far too long.

It needs to be decided peacefully, over a football match played at a neutral venue. Whoever wins gets to keep the islands.

We prefer to play naval games. Still waiting for Argentina to actually have an operational navy, at least one that can go all the way to the islands which apparently are "geographically" part of Argentina.

(Since when did geography dictate what territory is part of what country? There are islands and peninsulas and the like all over the world which belong to a nation other than the nearest one.)

We know enough that using hands to score a goal is cheating!

As usual, forumers from Britain, Europe, USA and Chile (an island of erudition on a generally backward continent) make reasoned arguments and hoist the argentines by their own petard. But it's to no avail, because you can't reason somebody (the argentines) out a belief they didn't reason themselves into (the insane idea that non argentine islands belonging to argentina).

Tu país oficialmente apoya el reclamo Argentino ante Naciones Unidas. Políticamente hablando, México es otro país Latino "EMERGENTE" que forma parte de la lista en favor de la petición argentina ante los Organismos internacionales.

El apoyo regional al reclamo argentino es UNÁNIME!

In reality Argentina should be thanking the British empire of the 19th century, it was their support that made the Monroe Doctrine workable. But for that I'm guessing some other european power would have grabbed most of Patagonia, heck the Spainish might even have tried to retake the north of the country. Not to mention british investment played a massive part in devolping the country as a whole, espeically Patagonia.

That said if oil were discovered giving Argentina a percentage of the profits(plus of course they'd likely benefit from refining and transport) if they in turn recognise the islands right to self determination seems like a reasonable resolution to me.

For those who don't understand spanish, let me translate this into the world's best and most widely spoken language. He says that Mexico oficially supports the Argentine claim at the UN. He says that politically speaking, Mexico is another developing that forms part of the list of supporters of the Argentine claim at the UN. He then says Argentina enjoys unanimous regional support.

Well, the unanimous support offered by latin america just shows the governments of those countries for what they are. And as for Mexico, I have nothing good to say about their government, the president of which employed a sophisticated electoral fraud to gain power, and who recently used the army to ruin my family's livelyhood. But that is the sad reality of the typical latin american government. Lip service is paid to democratic principles, but the politicians and (and many people, sadly) care little for democracy or self determination, and moreover are quite happy to for there to be a tyranny of the majority and even colonialism, just so long as it is being done by them, not on them.

The way different peoples and governments respond to this issue of Falklands sovereignty really does bring out their true colours. Sadly, latin america comes out looking very, very bad.

**deep sigh**

I suppose it was asking too much to expect this thread might stay away from becoming a political fight.
