I am in the US so it is not my business, but one thing I never got was if thre are only a few people living on the falklands and the UK always says that its the locals who want to stay britsh, why has the argentinians just not done a Mexican or Cuban maneuver and dump several thousand of their citizens on the islands?

Then there will be more people saying they want ot be arentinian than british.

Sort of like a squatter taking over a house


Speaking as an Englishman (AND a Canadian!) it's probably because they can't find "several thousand Argies" that want to live on the Falklands.

Not surprisingly, the claims are all related to large mineral deposits on the islands and OIL.

England is disgusting when it comes to these things.
They have been responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people.
Someone needs to put them in their place if they cant shut up and stop this crap.

Just the sort of shameful behaviour one might expect from a ghastly banana republic like Argentina.

However I'm quite positive that the tabloid reading masses here in the UK will still greet the Argentinean atheletes most warmly.....Honest!

Why don't you just stay on your island and leave other people alone.
You do not own the world.
Why don't you say sorry to all the people you have killed, the cultures and societies you have destroyed due to genocide, and the millions of lives you guys have ruined.

I am not blaming you for what generations before you did.
But the problem is Britain is continuing to commit those crimes today!
But not every country continues to do its so blatantly.

How do you justify the deaths of millions of people like that? It is disgusting.

Great Britain is an empire and let me tell you something, the public is not their priority.
You seem to have such a love for your country but don't forget the people who really run Britain think you are expendable and do not care about you, these are the same people who wage all these wars in which once again the public die fighting while they just gain more power.

The same could be said for any country on the planet....
Lets stick to the OP the islanders are British, they want to be British the Islands have never been in the hand of the Argentines.
Your just trying to rile us up so just stick to the OT.
Like I have said in a past post us Brits are very protective of those islands my familys blood was spilt taking them back from the Argies the time THEY tried to invade, we never invaded those islands we just colonized them and if anyone tries to take them again you will find many peaceful people willing to sign up to defend them again and we will defend them with our lifes if we must.
God save the Queen, Rule Britannia Britannia rules the waves Briton's never will be slaves.(singing)

To all fellow Brits next time people try to piss us off just sing Rule Britannia to them

Its sad your families blood was split for the cause of people who do not care one bit about them.
You do not own them.
The queen is not even British, and she does not actually care about the public.

Are you defending what you want to or what you have been told to defend.
If you really cared about Britain you would oust the elitists controlling it and starting all these pointless wars.

(Oh and I have met my queen and she is a great old gal very gracious)

Is it you who keeps popping up on threads with this ridiculous figure?

The Population of India was only 270 m in 1900. You want us to believe that the British Empire killed every Indian 6 x over?

Even the population of the whole world was only 1 bn in 1900, yet according to you the British Empire managed to kill everyone on the planet (almost twice)?

Anyway, notwithstanding your obvious hatred of Britain,


• The first people to see the Falklands were Dutch (1600)
• The first people to land on the Falklands were British (1690)
• The first people to build a colony were the French (1764), then the British (1766) then the Spanish (1767) and then the Argentines (1828).

The Monroe doctrine was in 1823. Link

The British built a colony on the Falklands in 1766, before the USA even existed as a country. Link

Perhaps the UK and Argentina could come to a deal.

The UK gives the Argentines the Falklands if the Argentine conquistadors give argentina back to the South American natives?

Not that there are many natives left in stolen land that is called Argentina, as the Argentine conquistadors killed most all of them.
