Argentina's president declared that the country had no claim on other nations.
The ultimate truth that proves that the Argentine government has already accepted that the Falklands are British.

It is a simple concept. The Argentines want the Falkland Island, they have to do something! The U.K has to do nothing!

You refer to a war which Argentina started and then lost! And Argentina also had more killed and massively more wounded! A war which led to the Kirchner government totally disarming your country to ensure their power, wealth and influence was total, while giving you no political weight internationally.

3 Billion to remove a fascist Argentine invading army to protect the lives of the Falkland Island people is money well spent. We waste far more on welfare every year. The prestige of winning that war was also very beneficial to international relations and trade.

Spending on infrastructure is not wasted. It improves peoples lives and ensures the defence of the Islands.

The cost of the ongoing up keep and defence of the Islands is not that high. Bases operating in Germany or Oman etc would have similar costs. Its strategic location and possible resourses mean it is worth much more.

The Submarines cost nothing because you do not know if they are even there!

The Type 45 would be somewhere else if it was not in Argentina to is no added cost.

In 1850, argentina gave up its claim to the Falkland Islands with the signing of a peace treaty known as the Convention of Settlement.
In that peace treaty there is a clause:
"VII. Under this Convention perfect friendship between Her Britannic Majesty's Government and the Government of the Confederation, is restored to its former state of good understanding and cordiality."
A. It is a treaty between Britain and Argentina.
B. It explicitly says settle existing differences.
C. The intention was to establish peaceful relations.
How can you settle your differences and leave an issue unresolved?

This is the truth. Argentina has already given up its claim to the Falkland Islands. This is the reason why Argentina refused to go to the Courts of International Justice on three occasions with the UK to discuss ownership of the Falkland Islands. Argentine politicians know this but keep on using 'the Great Malvinas Lie' to distract their gullible public away from economic hardship.

Added to this when Argentina ratified the 'Convention of Settlement treaty' in 1850 they acknowledged that,' a state of perfect harmony had been restored' between Argentina and Great Britain and that 'neither country had ANY outstanding differences'- remember 1833?

Yes, we do not have ANY outstanding differences. This was acknowledged and this is a legally binding document. The moral claim to the islands is even weaker because the Falkland Islanders have the right to self determination under the UN charter. It is their right 'not to be part of Argentina'.

TOO BAD you are losing at the UN..

When the Spanish governor left in 1810, this could be interpreted as a manifestation of intent to leave the islands. If this is the case, then the islands became terra nullius, and Buenos Aires acquired the title by occupation; Spain undertook no action to stop it, and did not even protest this might be interpreted as acquiescence.

Britain protested against the Argentine occupation in 1829, but at this stage Britain had definitely no valid claim over the Falkland Islands, Britain had maintained a settlement on the islands for a total of only seven to eight years, and had exercised effective control even then only over a small part of the West. Furthermore, any rights Britain may have had lapsed after 1774. It follows that Britain's seizure of the Falklands in 1833 was clearly an act of aggression.

Although these arguments are not officially accepted in Britain, the official case for British sovereignty is now generally made on the basis of post-1833 criteria. Two principles are invoked to support British sovereignty over the Falklands:(a) Prescription,(b) the right to self-determination.

According to the principle of prescription, Britain's occupation of the Falklands for nearly 150 years would suffice in itself for Britain to hold the title, even if its occupation was illegal in the first place.

The argument from prescription may have some legal basis, but it is legally tenuous, because it is not universally accepted as a principle of law (Brownlie 1963, p. 422). Furthermore, it is subject to certain conditions, as Ian Brownlie points out:

Assuming that title can result from adverse possession, the general recognition that the use of force as an instrument of national policy is illegal must cause such derivation of title to occur only in rare cases as a result of very long possession or general acquiescence by the international community. If prescription is permissible in such circumstances explicit statements as to non-recognition would play the role of protest in preventing or delaying the prescriptive process. Prescription may still exist as a mode of acquiring title in so far as its application had not been denied by states which at the same time accept obligations of non-resort to force. Nevertheless it is arguable that as a matter of principle the initial illegality can never be the source of legal right (Brownlie 1963, p. 422).

Similarly D. H. N. Johnson has stated that acquisition of a title by prescription is not possible unless a state can demonstrate that it has

... exercised its authority in a continuous, uninterrupted, and peaceful manner ... provided that 8 Christoph Bluth all other interested and affected states ... have acquiesced in this exercise of authority (Johnson 1950. p. 353).

April 1982 & FCO 1983). This argument does not make sense, since on the basis of the work of the UN Committee of 24 the UN General Assembly passed Resolutions 2065 (XX) and 3160 (XXVIII) which explicitly declared the Falklands to be a 'colonial situation', thus implying the need for de-colonization. Furthermore, these resolutions affirmed that the negotiations should bear in mind the interests of the population of the Falklands, thereby implicitly rejecting the applicability of the right to self-determination, which would have required bearing in mind their 'wishes'.

The application of the principle of decolonization to the Falklands case would involve two important issues.
