South American countries are united to defend Argentina.....Some countries should meditate on that...
Too bad even Falkanders are in favor of being British...
They can go back to Britain then.
There's a global awakening going on..Countries all over the world are beginning to be assertive in defending their national interest..The British claim to the Malvinas is as ridiculous as Iranian claim to some Island off the coast of Britain...It just doesn't hold water..Gone are the days when South American countries could be bullied into doing whatever the US wanted without a sniff..I see a similar thing happening in Asia in the near future..Iran could become a full member of the SCO this year..Other countries will also join..With global natural resources dwindling, expect more alliances to be formed to protect their assets..
Or Argentina can take a step back from the oil in the area.Also note only 29% are ethnically Anglo, the majority want to be under British control should be telling.
What is your source that the majority want to be under british control?
The people who live in the Falklands now are not a transitory population. Many can trace their origins in the Islands back to the early 19th century. Britain is committed to defend their right to choose their own future. The Islanders are fully entitled to enjoy the right of self-determination. It is a right which cannot be applied selectively or be open to negotiation, and one which is recognised in the UN Charter and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Self-determination does not necessarily mean independence. Britain has willingly granted independence where it has been requested, and will continue to do so where it is an option, while remaining committed to those of its Overseas Territories which choose to retain the British connection. In exercise of their right of self-determination, the Falkland Islanders have repeatedly made known their wish to remain British. An Argentine-inspired poll, conducted in 1994, revealed that 87% of them would be against any form of discussion with Argentina over sovereignty, under any circumstances.
lmao at your source. 'fco.gov.uk'CrazyIvan, you must let the fox guard the hen house for sure.
Argentina is only in it for the oil.
