Malvinas/Falkland Islands Sovereignty

Postby Republic of China Pacific States » Wed May 10, 2017 3:06 pm

Do you have the opinion that; A)The Malvinas/Falkland Islands should remain under control of the UK, or B)The Malvinas/The Falkland Islands should become part of Argentina?

I hold the opinion that the Malvinas are Argentinean territory, as the British illegally forced out the Argentines in the past and barred them from resettling.

What is your opinion, NSG?

Yet the Argentinians fail to point out that a French dude first got there, then we kicked them and the Argentines out several years later.
Pretty pathetic that they hold a near 200 year old claim still.

I would support a union with the UK in the same way the Faroe Islands is with Denmark. The Falklands would be autonomous but as a UK protectorate.

I hold the opinion that the only opinion that matters is the Kelpers' and the Kelpers have expressed in a fair and free referendum the opinion that Argentina can STFU and GTFO.
Also, Argentina never held any valid claim to the Falklands to begin with.

Btw I also think that HM's Government should just incorporate the Falklands as a county of England, thus shutting up for good that silly UN committee who whines about the Falkland not being sovereign enough.

I think that the Islands belong to whoever the Islanders themselves decide it belongs if there is a referendum on the question.

The default claim is British, and if they don't wish to change that then I so no reason too. If the Argentinian claim were to be accepted by the Islanders in a free and fair vote, I would accept that too.


Personally, I think it's a ridiculous and stupid non-issue, that only really emerged when the Fascist Galtieri regime needed an issue in the 80's, so I'm not inclined to be sympathetic to the Argentinian cause when it was that regime that first decided to make an issue of the question, but as I said, if the Falklands decided in their favor today, I wouldn't object.

Mixing up Garibaldi with Galtieri, maybe?

Oh, FFS. Not this shitstorm again.

The inhabitants (some of them having been on the island for generations) have overwhelmingly voted to remain under control of the UK. Therefore, barring a new referendum coming up with vastly different results, the debate is over.
Any accident you can walk away from is one I can laugh at.

And Russian boots hadn't set foot in the Crimea for like two decades by 2014. What's your point?
