    I am striving to understand the admins. policy here in that this is the second time they have shown sppt. for Argentinean calls for sovereignty negotiations.

    Last year Hillary provided verbal sppt. even referring to the islands in its Argentine name- the Malvinas.

    What advantage or benefit is derived from supporting this ? :eusa_eh:




    It is hugely disappointing that the Obama administration has chosen once again to side not only with the increasingly authoritarian regime in Argentina, but also with an array of despots in Latin America against British interests. Mrs Clinton should be reminded that 255 brave British servicemen laid down their lives in 1982 for the freedom of the Falkland Islanders, who are overwhelmingly British, following the brutal Argentine invasion.

    The sovereignty of the Islands is not a matter for negotiation, and Britain will never give in to threats from Argentina or its tyrannical allies in places such as Venezuela. The White House recently declared that Britain remains America’s most important ally. Now it should live up to its words by supporting Washington’s closest friend and partner on matters of vital British interest, including the future of British subjects living in the South Atlantic, whose only wish is to remain free under the protection of the Union Jack.

    The argentinians convinently do not consider the islanders to be "natives" claiming thier people were on the island around 1830 and were driven off by the British in 1833. the british, however claimed the island in 1690, before spain, and say they never gave up the claim.

    In any event possession is 90% of the law, and the british currently posses it.

    Obama is such a piece of shit. Some fucking 'friend' we are to the Brits. On the bright side, it'll make the Brits see what a total lying, two faced bastard Obama is.

    Why? Because he hates the British.... stupid, arrogant fucking idiot that he is. The Brits honor him with a speaking engagement at Westminster Hall - the only President ever to be given such a privilege and this is how he repays them.

    The Falkland Islands are British. Argentina already tried to take them back by force and lost that little war. If they want a rematch, it is between them and Britain.... and only a very foolish nation would take on the British. They are such damned ass kickers in a fight.

    The people of the Falkland Islands WANT to remain under Britain. Couldn't give a shit what some project says.... it is for the Falkland Islanders to decide.... and they decided... they chose Britain.

    This is not America's business, we should either:

    a. support Britain.
    b. mind our own fucking business.

    As liberals are so fond of pointing out, we don't own the world.
