It does not matter what Argentina wants. Argentina is an irrelevance.

Argentina has no determination over the Falkland Islands or its people.

Another over excitable Hispanic talking shit, The Falklands issue was settled in 1982. Spain is totally Bankrupt like Greece, Ireland is the same, And Argentina could revert back to a murderous dictatorship one day. That's why the people remain British

Yes, that's why we don't own Argentina. If Argentina wanted us to we would. That's called self-determination.

But the Falkland Islanders do want British rule. Which is why they've got it. That's called self-determination.

We don't rule Argentina, because the people don't want us. If we did it would be called colonialism.

Argentina doesn't rule the Falklands, because the people don't want them. If you did it would be called colonialism.

Your not the sharpest pebble on the beach are you. There's just a small matter of international obligations preventing that happening. Or in your case that's irrelevant to you 'the rule of law'.

Brazil supports Argentina, as does other nations in Latin America, and I am sure that there are nations in Europe which support Argentina as well, including Ireland and Spain...

Brazil Reiterates Support for Argentina over Falklands

By John Daly | Thu, 04 August 2011

On 29 July in the wake of a meeting between Argentinean President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff in Brasilia, the pair issued a joint communiqué in which Brazil reaffirmed its support for Argentina’s claim to the Falkland islands, which Buenos Aires refers to the as Malvinas.

Brazil reiterated its intention of banning all Falklands’ flagged vessels from calling at Brazilian ports and described as “illegal” the current British oil exploration in the Falkland Islands’ territorial waters.

The communiqué noted,“The President of Brazil reiterates the support of the country to the legitimate rights of the Argentine republic in the sovereignty dispute relative to the Malvinas, South Georgia and South Sandwich islands and its adjoining maritime spaces,” adding that “this position stands on the long tradition of Brazilian diplomacy in support for the Argentine claim and which is based on the deep rooted historic event of 1833 when through an act of force Argentina was expulsed from the Malvinas territory.”

In the specific paragraph dedicated to shipping the communiqué stated that “The President of the Federative Republic of Brazil reaffirms its commitment with the 26 November 2010 UNASUR (Unión de Naciones Suramericanas: Union of South American Nations) Declaration to adopt in conformity with International Law and respective domestic legislations, all measures susceptible of being regulated to impede the access to its ports of vessels flying the ‘illegal’ colors of the Malvinas Islands.”

The joint release also emphasized Brazil’s and Argentina’s solidarity by labeling Britain’s current hydrocarbons prospecting in Falkland waters as “illegal,” adding that the explorations along the Argentine continental shelf “are unilateral actions incompatible with the resolutions of United Nations on the matter and to not contribute at all to reach a definitive solution to the dispute.” Finally, lest the mandarins of Whitehall be in any doubt as to where Brazilian sympathies lay, Article 26 of the joint communiqué noted that the Argentine President Kirchner thanked Brazil for its standing support in this question, so sensitive, and in particular for its the support in a 21 June meeting of the UN Special Decolonization Committee.

All of the countries of Latin America should work together as a team in order to support Argentina, and every nation in Latin America should ban British ships from docking at their ports!

Ireland and Spain should also join with Argentina, and should ban British ships from docking at their ports!

The Malvinas Islands must return to Argentina, the Rock of Gibraltar must return to Spain, and Northern Ireland must return to Ireland! NOW! It is time for some teamwork.

Tony,

you/argentina must get it into your thick skulls that what you have4 stated is totally meaningless, and will remain the case until you/argentina has the balls to take your complaint to the appropriate court of law..

But you can't do that can you..?

You know why, because you know that your case will have to be thoroughly investigated..

Exactly the same reason why you/argentina has never offered to debate live on international television and radio...

You haven't got the balls...

Kindest regards from the Falkland Islands

Argentina is willing to debate the issue in a court of law, and Argentina has taken the issue to the United Nations, but England refuses to even discuss the issue, and England refuses to let the United Nations mediate. And there are people who are more than willing to discuss this issue on television, and I would have no problem discussing this issue on television (I am actually a trained actor, I attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and I am very comfortable being in front of a camera).

Here is a video that I made on the issue of saving and improving our world economy, I kept it really short and I left a lot of stuff out, but I was able to talk about a few things that I think are extremely important.

Here is the LINK:

And I would love to see the issue of the Malvinas Islands resolved peacefully, and one way to do it all peacefully is to take the case to the United Nations and let the United Nations mediate, which Argentina has already agreed to do.

Sincerely,

Tony V.

So what is stopping you..?

The United Nations International Court of Justice is there waiting and ready for you..

The UK as one of the founder memebers of the UN and the International Court of Justice would have an extremely big problem in refusing to submit to this institution's arbitration...

So again I ask you what is stopping you..?

Has anybody asked the UK to debate the Falklands' on international Television and radio..?
I think not..

I should have added that the United Nations (Security Council nor general Assembly) is not a court of law.
