Good catch, that one! And you are 100% right. The Falklands have always been British, and never "Malvinan", "Argentine", or even remotely linked to any country with a Romance language.

If the Falklands go to Argentina, then East Prussia and Königsberg go back to Germany.

Yes, a military junta trying to use the Falkands as a smokescreen for their own people rising up against them is what the Falkands needed. Never mind that the Islanders voted to stay British.

Again: the Argentines have NEVER owned any soil in the Falklands.

Well, technically they did at first, but then the SAS, SBS, Commandos, et al, went in and the Argentinians got their own arses handed to them on a plate, courtesy of the Queen's finest. And the rest, as they say, is history.

It wouldn't make sense based on demographics. Most Falkland Islanders are descendants of British immigrants who speak English, while Argentina is a Spanish-speaking nation. They'd have a hard time fitting in.

That stance would be biased though, so i think the united nation should step in and decentralise it, so the islands are like some kind of confederation thing and independent from both, with argentina and UK both havign bases on to protect it and they will pay for the entire falklands government.


How can it be 'biased' when it was the islanders themselves that made the decision? How can you justify completely ignoring their expressed wishes while simultaneously claiming bias?

Most of the island didn't want to join Argentina in the referendum, so no.

The Islands should remain British, administrated and protected by Britain. The people want it that way and Britain has won them through several wars, too. The UN should most definitely keep away from this territorial conflict - or any territorial conflicts, for that matter, because any step towards global political unification is a poor one.
