Apparently so.. shameful.
Shameful, what allowing the Islanders to choose their own soverignty. That makes us colonialists does it, letting the people choose to be part of our
nation. I suppose Argentina forcing their rule on those people doesn't make them colonialist though?
Mind our own business? It is our Business, the government of the Falkland Islands have asked our protection against their Argentinian oppressors.
It's all about Argentina wanting to claim the oil reserves that they've found off the Falklands.
If they discovered oil off Guam, the Americans wouldnt be giving it over to Indonesia, China or Japan.
Or American Samoa, The Northern Marianas, US Virgin Islands over to whoever claimed them.
Same for the France w/ French Guiana, New Caledonia or Martinique.
The Danes going to hand Greenland over to the US/Canada?... Nope.
The UK has no need to ever consider handing over the Falklands any more than the Cayman's over to the Mexicans, Bermuda to the US or Montserrat to
Until the people of these Overseas Territories decide themselves that they want to break away from their respective Governing nations, nobody else
should be forcing them to do so.
Falklander's are full British Citizens as of 1983 and thus deserve the same level of protection from the threat of foreign forces as anyone back in
Obviously Nukes are a completely moronic suggestion, but they will be protected by force if need be, no matter of their proximity to the UK.
