UN C-24 CHAIRMAN: I would say that Malvinas is a misplaced theme within the Decolonization Committee . Because we are not talking about a colony. It is an Argentine territory occupied by a foreign power. It is a military occupation of a foreign power “. Forceful words emanating from the legitimate voice of the Committee on Decolonization of the United Nations , chairman, Diego Morejon Pazmiño

The only thing that is misplaced is the truth by the chairman of a legally powerless UN sub-sub committee that's not even permitted to issue advisements, and has no recognized standing in international law. That being the sole preserve of the UNICJ and the UNSC, they are the only two organs of the UN that are so empowered under international law.
So all that Pazmiño has revealed is he must be accepting money to make such an untruthful statement, since here are just two of many components of international law directly that refute his contention.
1. There is no obligation in general international law to settle disputes.
2. The rule of the intertemporal law still insists that an act must be characterized in accordance with the law in force at the time it was done, or closely on the next occasion.
But the big cheese, head honcho, the guy thats got something relevant and truthful to say and isn't corrupt, the UNGS says the the UK is not in breach of any relevant resolutions.
Time to get your maricón wop ass back to Italy.

Russia

Russia has evolved to a point where we just had a wonderful winter Olympics in the new and improved Russia. We need to look for ways that we can work together internationally as a team with Russia to make our world a better place for all of us. Russia needs to pull their troops out of Crimea, Russia needs to end any threat to the Ukraine, and we need to look for ways that we can work together for the betterment of all.

And meanwhile, the World Bank and IMF can help the Ukraine, etc, etc, etc, and world financial markets can help the Ukraine, etc, etc, etc. I do not support giving American tax dollars to the Ukraine however, as the economy is still bad in the USA, and I do not support the USA giving away American tax dollars to any foreign nation. There are many ways that we can work to make our world a better place without giving away American tax dollars to foreign nations.

Our world has evolved, and Russia is a new and improved nation, we need to look for ways in which we can work together with the new Russia, instead of bringing back the Cold War of the past, etc, etc, etc. We need to move forward in good ways instead of moving backwards.

Seriously.

Salute,

Do you think that Topix will ever be big like You Tube, Facebook, and Twitter? In my opinion Topix has a lot of potential. I think with a few little changes, and with a little promotion, Topix could become part of the popular culture.

'No Clear Gain in Dispute Over Falklands'

Fact is, the Falkland Islands belong to the islanders. It is as Ban Ki-Moon said in 2010,'the 16 remaining territories that still do not govern themselves must have complete freedom in deciding their own future status.'

There have been several ICJ Advisory Opinions since 1971 that state,'the right to self-determination is applicable to ALL non-self-governing territories.'

Argentina has signed the UN Charter. Article 73, Declaration regards non-self-governing territories states,'that the wishes of the inhabitants are paramount.'

Fact is, Argentina does not have a valid claim to the Falkland Islands they need to stop spinning the 'Great Malvinas Lie.'

If the USA did not defeat the British twice, we would not have our freedom that we enjoy today. And England also threatened to enter our Civil War on the side of slavery, but if England would have declared war on the Union in the USA then France would have declared war on England, so France and others helped to keep England out of the American Civil War. Read your history, England supported the South and slavery in the USA Civil War, and almost entered the war on the side of slavery. God bless France, whom is a true ally.
Also of note, is that Karl Marx is buried in England.
The only reason that Canada, Scotland, and Australia, have any freedom at all, is because the USA defeated England twice, and England feared that they would revolt as the USA did.
Then there is the history of the bad things that England did to Scotland.
England did bad things all over. And there is the history of Francis Drake, whom was pure evil.
Ireland belongs to Ireland, and the British need to get out of Ireland. The Rock of Gibraltar belongs to Spain, and England needs to get out. And the Malvinas Islands belong to Argentina.
The list of bad things that England has done goes on and on.
Wow, someone doesn't know history at all, there's a surprise (not)
Starters, Britain, not England.
Secondly, the USA started the 1812 war and it ended a stalemate. Britain was involved in a more important war at the time with Napoleon. The USA as per usual from the very start of the American independence movement was motivated by gain, the desire to expand. The very independance war itself was motivated by the desire to expand West which their British masters at the time resisted, due to being bankrupted through the 7 year war, which was started by the colonists.
To this day they call it the insular French and Indian War, ignoring the fact that it was in fact the first actual World War raged across Europe, Africa and Asia. Started by Washington attacking a French fort with his militia, an action that started this expensive war which ended with the French having to leave North America. Until that time the 13 colonies were trapped against the East coast, with France claiming all the land from Quebec in the North to Louisiana in the South and all central land between.
So the major influence on the Independence war was the desire to move West, now Britain had beaten and cleared the French. Britain was bankrupted in doing so, therefore did not want another expensive war, so while they were at their weakest, the colonists struck.
The same in 1812, Britain was stretched beyond their capabilities when the treacherous Americans struck once more, hoping to take Canada.
In the civil war, Britain was impartial and did not want to get involved as the French were once more rising and the German empire was staring to become a threat. I bet they did enjoy seeing the Americans rip themselves apart though.
Even today. all American decisions and actions throughout the world is driven by greed and self interest.

You were taught wrong! You need to learn your history from the American point of view, and from the point of view of France, Spain, and others.

And during the 100 Year War the French had to fight against the British for 100 years! France just wanted to live in peace, but England tried to take control of France, and France was forced to fight against the British for 100 years before the French finally forced the British to stop. England has done a lot of bad things.

And the USA was forced to fight against England TWICE! Once for our independence, and once again during the War of 1812, and we defeated the British both times! If we did not defeat the British then we would not have our freedom. England has done a lot of bad things.

This thread kicked off with a Washington Post line suggesting that all is not well in the Argentine every time they start sabre-rattling over the Falklands.
They're building up their military and Filmus has launched a propaganda campaign.
Is it anything to do with the parlous state of Argentine economic affairs?

The 100 year war was due to English Kings of French ancestry trying to reclaim lands they believed was theirs. This stems from William the Conqueror, who was from Normandy. At that time Normandy was independent of France.

At one point the English King held more land in present day France than the King of France did at that time. The reason was simply he inherited land and married into more French land. Over the course of time after that through lack of good management (some pretty atrocious kings, like King John), the land was lost, or rather taken by other Lords of the land. This was before that land became part of France.

The two wars that America won! The first they did, with French and Spanish help, the second they did not win, it was a stalemate.

Try looking at history without the hatred, with objective eyes and you will see the truth.

The USA and Cuba are now friends again after over 50 years, and soon Cuba will have freedom, democracy, and improved human rights. And the USA will become closer with the rest of Latin America, and with Canada, and we will have a trade block and team with over one billion people here in the Western Hemisphere.

Salute,
