There are 3000 people on the falklands, if Argentina offered them $100.000 to vote in favour of Argentina, they would still vote no. Argentina are doing it all wrong, if they want the falklands, they need to convince the falklanders that joining Argentina would be a good thing, but Argentina have never tried to do that, instead you've made them hate you. Take Alaska as an example, Alaska is American, but geograpically, climatically and culturally, they are more Canadian, but because Canada is a rich country with lots to offer, alaskans could in future be more likely to want to join Canada at some point, but Argentina are doing the opposite, the falklanders will never want to be argentinian, because you have nothing to offer, thats the difference. If alaskans joined canada, it will be because they want to and have voted to do so, because they have never been invaded or insulted by Canada, and because Canada is a similar place with great opportunities and wealth. The problem for Argentina is, the falklanders were invaded and insulted by them, they are a totally different culture and language, and Argentina has a poor quality of life compared to anglos, so the falklanders will never want to be argentinian, that is why they will always remain British. I'm not saying that Alaska will join Canada, but if they did, it would show Argentina how to do things, you can only take soveringty of a place, if the people there want to join you, it is easy to imagine a scenario where alaskans would want to join Canada. If on a globe, Argentina was replaced by Canada or Australia, the falklanders would be more willing to join them, but Argentina has nothing to offer them, if Argentina want the falklands, they need to become a modern, rich and free country, and they need to respect and convince the falklanders to join them, but that will never happen
We can offer them 1million Euros in GOld..they will go..

General Assembly resolution 1514 (XV) states that 'All peoples have the right to self-determination; by virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.'

Resolución 2065 (XX) de la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas. Cuestión de las Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands)

La Asamblea General,

Habiendo examinado la cuestión de las Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands),

Teniendo en cuenta los capítulos de los informes del Comité Especial encargado de examinar la situación con respecto a la aplicación de la Declaración
sobre la concesión de la independencia a los países y pueblos coloniales concernientes a las Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands) y en particular las
conclusiones y recomen­daciones aprobadas por el mismo relativas a dicho Terri­torio,

Considerando que su resolución 1514 (XV), de 14 de diciembre de 1960, se inspiró en el anhelado propósito de poner fin al colonialismo en todas partes y
en todas sus formas, en una de las cuales se encuadra el caso de las Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands),

Tomando nota de la existencia de una disputa entre los Gobiernos de la Argentina y del Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña e Irlanda del Norte acerca de la
soberanía sobre dichas Islas,

1. Invita a los Gobiernos de la Argentina y del Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña e Irlanda del Norte a proseguir sin demora las negociaciones recomendadas
por el Comité Especial encargado de examinar la situa­ción con respecto a la aplicación de la Declaración sobre la concesión de la independencia a los
países y pueblos coloniales a fin de encontrar una solución pacífica al problema, teniendo debidamente en cuenta las disposi­ciones y los objetivos de
la Carta de las Naciones Uni­das y de la resolución 1514 (XV) de la Asamblea General, así como los intereses de la población de las Islas Malvinas
(Falkland Islands) ;

2. Pide a ambos Gobiernos que informen al Comité Especial y a la Asamblea General, en el vigésimo primer período de sesiones, sobre el resultado de las
negocia­ciones.

1398a. sesión plenaria, 16 de diciembre de 1965.

You would think that it should be easy for argentina to bribe three thousand falklander people to join you, but no matter what Argentina throw, those three thousand stubborn brits won't budge, you can't buy them off, they have proven oil reserves of billions of barrels, Argentina have only started talking about the falklands again recently, because of the oil finds, they retention interested before, that's all Argentina want, and the falklanders know this, it is the islanders oil, they will exploit THEIR natural resources, Argentina will not get any of it, nothing at all, all these recent oil finds have pushed shares of the companies involved, very high now, with the drilling to begin on two of the sites, large scale this year, so sit back and enjoy, as the black gold flows, and the British flags fly high on top of the oil rigs, but don't sorry, on risky wells we will make sure that the flow of water is heading towards Argentina, so if there ever is a oil spill, it will turn up on argentinas, allready filthy and dirty beaches, and not on the pristine, beaughtifull environments of the falklands, if you object to that, you can write a strongly worded letter to my bathroom, and I will use it appropriately, like all things Argentinian, then flush it down, as your words mean as little to me, as your country means to Britain, good night

Nuestras Islas Malvinas Argentinas, territorios y mares adyacentes son soberanas del Pueblo Argentino.

Implantando a una población netamente Pirata(Británica)para no permitir jamás que nada Argentino floreciera en ellas.
Lo único que es Pirata(Británico)en esta parte integral de nuestro país, son los habitantes ilegales que pululan en ellas.

If you offered them $1milliin each, some might go, maybe even half, but some will still stay, as they are soon to get a lot more from the oil fields, but if you offered them $1million right now, you would probably get about half to leave

Posts #665,#666,#684 and #685 are not mine.

I suspect post #698 attributed to straa is not his either.

Impersonating other posters is just so childish...

Having a right laugh at this "MALVINAS ARGENTINAS" bloke, try expanding your vocabulary past pelotudo.
Then realise that regardless of our debt, the UK can still hold its head above the water without running off crying to the EU. The Falklands are British and all of your idiotic Presidents wailing that they are otherwise will get your pathetic country nowhere.
It is OK,PELOTUDO,for the audience..dean,sideram,terry.. Full blown PELOTUDOS!

This is true and this is why the Falklands referendum hurts Argentina so much. Ouch!

having read the posts so far, I can see both sides of the argument. The question I have to ask though is, How many of you have been or are considering going to the Falklands any time in the future? The reason I ask is this, surely those who live in the islands are the only ones who should have the say of who they belong to.

El que está invadiendo y usurpando esta parte integral de nuestro país desde hace más de 180 años, es Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña) y nadie más.
Nuestro diferendo es con Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)y con nadie más.
Lo que piensen, sientan o deséen los habitantes ilegales que pulúlan por ellas, transplantados por Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)desde hace más de 180 años, no nos preocupa en lo más mínimo.
Hicímos lo que pudímos por ellos, ahora ellos han tomado su decisión. Esa decisión es seguir siendo ciudadanos Piratas(Británicos)pués que así séa...pero en Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)o séa en Európa, que es donde está Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña)y nó en América.

mally

you are talking rubbish, garbage...

I have already given you evidence about Sr Ernesto Row, who was the owner of "Estate Louis Williams", and about the stores, farms and lands he owned..

I also told you about the the local company "Fortuna Ltd" and how the owners travelled to Rosario, in argentina and purchased the property from the late Sr Rowe's family..

Now if you so wish, because it seems you are not the brightest, I'll repost the information for you..

Please let me know and I'll do just that..

Additionally, mally everyone except you that is, are now more than well aware that the only people that were requested to leave in 1833 were a band of murdering, thieving rapists who were masquerading as some sort of military force..
By the way, a number of these criminals were executed by firing squad in buenos aires after trial there..

Again, if you so wish, I can provide the evidence for you, because as I said you don't seem to be the sharpest knife in the drawer..

Kindest regards from the Falkland Islands

¿Ofrecérles plata?
Qué¿son prostitútas ahora?
A esos Pirátas(Británicos)no les doy ni un centavo.
Que se la banquen por traidores. Vayan a pedírles plata a Piratalandia(Gran Bretaña), seguramente con la ambruna que están pasando les van a dar algo y todo.
