    I think it's about time you sent the RN down there and gave them a touch up.

    The Malvinas are 300 miles of the coast of Argentina, the Falklands are 8000 miles of the coast of Britain. In this day and age what is a British colony still doing in South American Waters?

    It is not a "colony" as you put it and the Argentine claims to it are specious at best as the islands were never settled by Argentina. I have already posted quite a bit on this subject and I am frankly tired of repeating myself. I recommend that you do a bit of research on the history of the Falklands before you go galloping to the defense of Argentina and you can start by looking up my previous posts. Buenos Aires has no legitimate claim to those Islands and their claims are motivated by greed and nothing else.

    Its there deal with it. If not ask all the Spanish etc decendents to go back to their nationalities of ethnic origin from Argentina At least with the Falkland islanders, there was no-one there when they settled there, and there wasn't no matter what Buenos Aries might say. Get over it...

    It does not matter where it is, it matters what they people living there want - a concept called SELF DETERMINATION. The people of the Falkland Islands are of British descent and wish to remain British. They are NOT Argentinean or even Hispanic. It's quite simple.

    Using your logic Canada should invade St. Pierre & Miquelon - afterall they are right next to Canada and far away from France.

Especially Morrisey; http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/ma...tina-morrissey
    Grrr
    Sean Penn will put his oar in I would imagine...

    I just know he is the poster child Champagne Socialist. Makes good music, but to me (even if I don't agree with the message) it is an empty one when he lives the lifestyle he speaks out against.

    Billy Bragg?
