The British royal family is up to start another war in the Falklands, as a ritualistic blood sacrifice for the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen E-lizard-beth.
I went to Hillsborough on the Friday morning, despite the obstacles put in my way by the Northern Ireland Office, the headquarters of the RUC, the divisional commander in Lisburn and the police commander in Hillsborough. I stood outside Hillsborough, not waving a Union flag—I doubt whether I will ever wave one again—not singing hymns, saying prayers or protesting, but like a dog and asked the Government to put in my hand the document that sold my birthright. They told me that they would give it to me as soon as possible. Having never consulted me, never sought my opinion or asked my advice, they told the rest of the world what was in store for me.
I stood in the cold outside the gates of Hillsborough castle and waited for them to come out and give me the agreement second-hand. It is even more despicable that they could not even send one of their servants to give it to me. I had been told three hours before that it would be brought out to me. At 2.45 pm, 15 minutes after the press conference had begun, I asked a policeman whether he would bring me the declaration that betrayed everything that I had ever stood for. A senior police officer went into Hillsborough castle, asked for the document and brought it out to me.
I felt desolate because as I stood in the cold outside Hillsborough castle everything that I held dear turned to ashes in my mouth. Even in my most pessimistic moments, reading the precise detail in the Irish press on the Wednesday before, I never believed that the agreement would deliver me, in the context that it has, into the hands of those who for 15 years have murdered personal friends, political associates and hundreds of my constituents. I hope that no one else in the House ever has to stand outside the gates of anywhere and see his most cherished privileges and ideals turn to dust and ashes in his mouth. That is what it felt like to me.

I am not saying the Brits have rights upon Falkland. I am just saying as a matter of fact. Why not throw a referendum?
Britain is a member of NATO, and if they dont have a carrier, im pretty sure Washington would glad to lend them one. Those carrier are sitting ducks anyway, for most of the time.
Further on, i believe Falkland is a British checkpoint to Antartica. NATO is conducting top secret researches at the sixth continent.
Besides, what benefits does Falkland had ever given to the British people, anyway?edit on 12-2-2012 by coyote66 because: (no reason given)
And the English compromised by selling the Northern Irish out.
They did that because the les troubles en irlande du nord had arrived in London, the IRA bombed many places in England. So they sold out the Ulsterman's right to decide his own fate, gave his rights to self determination to a foreign government (Irlande).
That is why the Argentines must change policy. They must adopt one which will wear the English down, over the years, bleed them dry.
And Kirchner knows that, she just has to snap her fingers and English warships appear over the horizon. Kirchner doesn't have to do anything apart from rattle her sabre, and boy it works, that's the thing !
The sad thing though is HMS Dauntless represents a significant part of the English surface fleet.
That's a huge part of what's left of the Royal Navy to defend a pile of rocky rubble. And it'll cost ... there's no change from one billion pounds for HMS Dauntless.
Still. The English will become fed up eventually. Like the Channel Islanders, the one's of the Falklands will be abandoned when the English are worn out.
