    Really, this just provides the Islanders with one more way of proving their nationality, participating in the nearly five hundred year old British tradition of telling popes to go fuck themselves.

    There can be no talks until Argentina admits that the Falkland Islanders exist. This is probably because Argentina knows they have no case against the Brits if they do.

    And the "militarization of the South Atlantic"? Well by golly, maybe the UK woukd feel the need to fortify the Falklands if you didn't invade them without justification in the 80s. Really, if Argentina though they could get away with it, they would probably do so again.

    Oh now they like the idea of going to an international court to solve a problem.

    The Ruffo clause seems to be key

    I skimmed through the article but I couldn't find where this is Britain's fault. Perhaps Sean Pean will offer to buy out these bonds?

    Oddly enough not all Argentinian issues involve Britain, although if you are in a portal from the 1930s you might be right

    Your sarcasm-o-meter may need a recalibration.

    Nah, I got it, I just thought that since you posted the story in a thread about but the Falklands it would pay to try and make it clear that we were not really talking about the Falklands lest we once again be swamped with discussion of such.

    There was a time when it wasn't?

    But I think the resistance I’m getting more has to do with “rawr! Loklar said it! Rage!” than anything else.

    No, it has to do with the fact that you're done nothing but throw lies, blatant flasehoods, and downright dumb statements at us so far.

    When it comes to this issue, Argentina is thoroughly and completely in the wrong. That isn't going to change with bullshit rhetoric and some plaques.
