But you are basing Argentina's claim on an illegal Penal Colony that was in operation for a matter of months - UK claims stem from well before
And 200 years of continued settlement far outweigh any possible agreement that may or may not have been contravened all them years ago.
Argentina has never had a permanent settlement on the islands - their claims are tenuous at best and are nothing but neo-colonialism - but because it
fits in with your bigotted viewpoint of things you are perfectly willing to ignore that or the simple fact that the whole Argentinian history is based
on colonialism itself.
Kirchner had the chance to both provide a much needed boost to the Argentinan economy and to greatly improve and develop relationships with the
Islanders which could quite easily the sovereignty issue given time.
That she chose to decline the offer in favour of trying to elevate her own personal image speaks volumes of just exactly where her priorities lie -
and they most definately are not in the best interests ofthe Argentinian people.
But I guess that's ok is it?
Oh, and I forgot to mention;
'They' did not run off the Argentians, they were given the chance to stay on - an offer the majority took up willingly.
