Argentina talks tough over new claim to the Falkland Islands

Elections next year so tough TALK just to boost moral.
Politicians do any of them are how many TOMs/PEDROs die for their right to govern.

When are the descendents of the traitorous scum who rebelled against the Spanish Crown going to pull their heads out of their early 19th century arrses and realise it ain’t EVER going to happen unless the people who live on the Islands want it!

They have NO claim to them, the Spanish abandoned them in 1806 and there has been a continuous British presence there since 1832!

Worse still, these bunch of whining big girls’ blouses waste the international communities time trying to ‘negotiate’ for them! It’s about time the UN told the cheekie little fcukers to grow up and accept that the Islands may one day be independent of the UK by choice, but they will NEVER be Argentinean.

The sooner this is happy slapped into the fcukers the better.

Funny how the head diego in B.A. is up for re-election soon when he starts kicking off about this TW@T!

Well, Gordon Brown wants to replace Trident - these fcukers want putting on notice that an attack on the Falklands will result in MASSIVE reconstruction in EVERY major Argentinean city courtesy of them! What’s the point in having a Nuclear deterrent when up-start near third world nations have a pop without the military muscle to see the job through!

What’s next? Norway wanting the Shetlands back? Froggies wanting Jersey!

[align=center]Oi, Argentina![/align]

[align=center]YOU’VE BEEN THERE, YOU’VE TRIED IT, YOU BINNED IT NOW FCUK OFF AND LEAVE IT ALONE!

But come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough!

Cap - it's just posturing as jonwilly says. With our ability to re-inforce the islands they have no hope of a military solution to this. However, you should not overestimate our ability to re-capture them in the unlikely event they do get them back. What you should not underestimate is the willingness of the UK government to reach some sort of 'accommodation'. If they were willing to attempt it with the Spanish over Gibraltar nothing is off the agenda.

Good rant Cap but a total waste of your time. However, since you've managed 93 posts in the last 48 hours you clearly have nothing else better to do maybe it wasn't such a waste. :)

Looking at this link there is a timeline, which states;

1690 First British landing, headed by Captain Strong; islands named after Lord Falkland

1820 The United Provinces of Rio del Plata (later Argentina and Uruguay), take possession of islands despite British sovereignty claims

1833 British warships regain the Falklands.

So am i right in thinking that argentine sov claims are based on a 13 year occupation in the face of another country having sovereignty? That and its location i guess...am i missing any key facts?

So actually its the Spanish who should be having a go and not the 40pence versions known as the Argies

Not particularly well. The inhabitants of Goose Green for example were all (100+) confined to the village community centre for about 30 days prior to the capture of the place by 2 PARA. A fairly unsavoury character called Maj Patricio Dowling was in charge of 'security operations'. No civilians were killed but a number were mistreated.

Better than their own population ,but, thats not saying much .I guess the argie plan was mass deportation and re stocking with their own people.Theft of vechicles smashing of radios etc Unpleaseant but not barbaric .
