They didn't had any Argentine employed.
There wasn't any of that at all, except for a desire to turn the Falklands into a penal colony. There wasn't a village of any size at all.

That's self defense. Not an invasion. Those British are the ones invading Argentina.

obama is one of the dumbest presidents we have ever had. To display how dumb and ill informed he is, he called your precious Malvinas, the "Maldives", which is a group of islands in the Indian Ocean. He has no idea what he is talking about and what he is "backing".

It wasn't self defense. It was a last desperate gamble by a discredited and brutal military dictatorship to hold on to power. Fortunately, they found that pushing around the Brits was a lot harder than pushing around their own people.

Britain did the Argentinian people a favour. Thanks to us, you finally managed to get rid of the generals. You should be grateful.

You do not ave any proof of that other than you opinion.

And it does not matter at all to what purpose Argentina used his land. Since the land was legally acquired. And property does not expires with use, type of use or lack of it.

No country may seize an unused portion of Alaska just because USA do not "use it", use it for a jail, or any other excuse..

So now Obama is the discredited one?

Why USA is officially neutral? It did not started with Obama.

USA is the main ally of Britain, have a lot of interest on that alliance, but is officially neutral. It says how poor is the British fundamentation on his grabbing of the islands. The British position is not defensible at all.

1. An organisation that has repeatedly stated and again in this statement supports the Argentine claim. That is not an unbiased article and doesn't show evidence of the dates and details you have given us.

2. That is a story backing the idea of talks, again, not evidence of your given details.

Now you are just making yourself look silly.

Using thousands of soldiers, tanks, machine guns, ships and aircraft to subdue and overwhelm and then hold at their will, 2000 peaceful civilians, is not self defense. It's an invasion.

I have plenty of proof, it's all in the historic record. No village or any other civilized society with an organized government existed.
