No, Falklands is British, not Argentinian and it will remain British, end of story.

What do we have that they should want?
We have a wall to work upon!
We have work and they have none
And our work is never done
My children, my children
And the war is never won
The enemy is poverty
And the wall keeps out the enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That's why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free
We build the wall to keep us free

False on both counts. Some Pacific islands have a population numbering in the low thousands, and the population of the Falklands isn't spread out at all, 81% of the population lives in urban areas...

This happens whenever the topic comes up. Once one option pulls ahead it always seems to magically become the pro-Argentinian one.

The poll answers being switched is perhaps the pettiest thing I've ever seen.

All the latin american countries, the UK and the EU should have bases on so they will peacefully interact with each other, and wont be able to invade the islands.


Whilst I agree with protecting the penguins I don't see why the UK should be forced to accept bases from multiple foreign entities simply because an irrelevant South American nation throws its toys out of the pram each time its long debunked and backwards economic policies begin to lead it into a downward spiral.

Other than the argument relating to national sovereignty there are multiple arguments also against this insane idea:
Why should the UK accept military bases on its foreign territory from entities which are diplomatically or militarily hostile towards it (EU and Argentina) in order to protect the nature and oil which is already well protected by HM's Armed Forces

The EU doesn't have a military it could base on the islands in the first place

Most South American countries are too poor to properly secure their borders to prevent the outward flow or narcotics and people nevermind deploy troops to a territory which isn't theirs to defend in the first place

Indeed. This exact same thread seems to do the rounds every few months. The answer is always the same, so I don't know why people bother to bring this topic back to the table anymore.

How weird that there's so many nations created today posting in this thread.

How weird that you created your nation two minutes after the OP went offline, and came to this thread one minute later.

No, the people living there want to be part of the uk, and that ain't gona change soon. So doesn't matter what Argentina says, they cant do anything about it unless they want to try invading again, in which case good fucking luck.

What a silly individual that poll rigging guy is. I suggest Great Britain/UK make the greatest and largest navy out of the Royal Navy, like it used to, and build multiple military bases on the Falklands, using it's oil and strategic position for massive naval bases to deploy ships from, fuel convoys, and refuel worldwide ocean patrols.
