as you can see in the image, it is part of argentinas continental shelf. if all the water dried up it would be a mountain.
geologically speaking it is part of argentina.
The Royal Navy is the second-largest navy in NATO in terms of the combined tonnage of its fleet. Its global power projection capabilities are deemed second only to the United States Navy. There are currently 91 commissioned ships in the Royal Navy, including aircraft carriers, submarines, mine counter-measures and patrol vessels. There are also the support vessels of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.

Geologically Speaking the USA is part of Mexico, Canada and the Carabean Islands but they are all seperate countries. Can you expand on your point about the Shelf and its relevance to the debate? If anything that would mean that Argentina belongs to the Falklands as it was a nation before Argentina.
