Wow. The world is openly forming two teams.
Rebels vs Imperialists.
let the UN deal with it... you seem to like UN justice most of the time.
Oh really??? Like the English claimed Australia, killed the Aborigines, then stole their land??? How many other countries have England done this too??
As much as I depise the UN.. maybe they should sort it out?
The UN CharterIn 1941 Allies of World War II signed the Atlantic Charter and accepted the principle of self-determination. In January 1942 twenty-six states signed the Declaration by United Nations, which accepted those principles. The ratification of the United Nations Charter in 1945 at the end of World War II placed the right of self-determination into the framework of international law and diplomacy.
Chapter 1, Article 1, part 2 states that purpose of the UN Charter is: "To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace."
Article 1 in both the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR). Both read: "All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development."
It was time that the world community said enough and demanded that the british monarchy return the stolen islands to the democratic govt of Argentina.
I think we should do a deal with Argentina but building in some sort of protection for those who want to remain.
How is it going too far, it is a standard tour of duty. It will be there for around 6 months and will the be replaced by another warship as is standard. It isn't there to start a war but to deter one. It has gone down to replace the current destroyer that is down there as that warships tour of duty is up.

England needs to quit with the colony crap and mind its own business, leave those islands to the South Americans to manage.. if the Islands were parked off Englands shores I'd say they have a claim, but they are half a world away. Is England that petty it must fight over tiny pieces of land? Apparently so.. shameful.

It appears yet more aggression and sabre ratling from the south america's and not suprising coming from Venezuela. I believe it is starting to get to a stage now where the UK are going to have to flex their muscles in a warning to any of those countries that want to continue to threaten the Falkland Islands choosen soverignty. This may be an ideal time to test out our new Type 45 Destroyers, Astute Class nuclear submarines and the Eurofighter Typhoon.
