Saw that! Un-fucking-believable.
I admit I'm not an authority on the whole FI situation, but I have been reading a lot of the recent news articles on the various back and forths between the two nations, I have yet to see any kind of reasonable argument as to why the Falklands might possibly be rightfully Argentinian. What's their angle??
well, france, britain, and spain all had colonies there at various times.
i believe [not based on any recent or detailed research] that: (1) spain might back then [what - 200 to 300 years ago?] have had reason to dispute the way in which britain's colony superseded its own; and (2) any 'spanish' territory in that part of the world would have automatically become part of the new 'argentina' when it was formed a couple of hundred years back.
it's all a bit daft though. no group of people identifying themselves as argentian or even spanish has lived there for a terribly long time, & even all the way back then it was relatively a fleeting [compared to the current british 'occupation'] thing.
