Aye this was kind of strange set of developments, Timerman, the guy who's trying to open up diplomatic relations with Iran, turned up in the UK for a talk with foreign minister William Hague, but won't talk if anyone from the Falklands is also at the meeting.

Still, turns out Borges was right:

Boorish, British rednecks are at it again. Argentina is engaged in global diplomacy while the chavs are trying to play their ever-always role of football hooligans.

They had a cruise ship that came into port in Argentina and started blaring God Save the Queen as drunk Britishers vomited over the side.

I'm solutions oriented, so I will offer this solution: Sell the rights to country extermination to North Korea (the world might only get back some UN Food Aid as payment though).

... has been compiled by three eminent researchers at an influential United States Research Centre, the Margaret Thatcher Centre for Freedom ...


I like how the "eminent researchers" are just British expats who happen to be living in the U.S. ...

He was recently named one of the 50 most influential Britons in the United States by the London Daily Telegraph.

Sorry mate, but you are. I stuck one of those little cocktail stick flags into you while you were sleeping.

Ah, that's where that came from. You'll be happy to know it occupies a prominent place at the bottom place at the bottom of my toilet.

Who do you think has the right or deserves to control the islands? A nation of questionable democratic processes and limited freedom of the press which controlled the islands for a brief stint nearly 200 years ago; or a nation which is unquestionably free and democratic, the birthplace of much of our western values; this nation which has controlled the islands for nearly 200 straight years, defending the islands against attack in two world wars as well as other battles, and currently has the clear support of a few thousand residents? You know which side I support.

If we continually return to the disputes of our ancestors, there will be a never-ending list of disputes from nations around the globe to be settled. Let the dead past remain in the past and let us move on to the glorious future! (can you hear that patriotic song playing faintly in the background?)

Economic stability is a prerequisite to democratic stability. That's why nations that have had their natural wealth plundered by European colonial empires tend to have shaky democratic traditions (see: all of sub-Saharan Africa), not because they are somehow just naturally inferior.

If we really care about the development of democratic Argentina we will return its natural wealth to it. The outnumbered and outgunned Argentinians defeated the British once when they invaded mainland South America, and forced them to flee to island South America (Malvinas) where they raised the drawbridge. There's not a statute of limitations they somehow missed to recover the rest of their territory simply by being a small, nascent republic without the ships available in 1807 to defeat the world's largest navy.
