@ Reds/hookah: Haha silly Argentines want oil and think it's a good idea to threaten a nation with vastly superior military to theirs.
@ Kommissar Orren: I know you said it hurts, but try lying flat on your back on the floor for a while. Perhaps after a heat pad/hot shower so the pain isn't so bad.
@reds as well.
The funny thing is we tried to negotiate to share the oil, since it would be beneficial to everyone, but the Argies refused flat out, and then complain about us stealing oil and being all imperialist.
You can't win with some people. Still they Argentines only complain about it when they have internal issues they are trying to distract from.
In my opinion this whole thing will blow over in a few years when the Argentines get bored of all this nonsense, and as you say, their internal issues become too big to ignore.
They have virtually no grounds for any claim to the islands and everything they've been doing is just alienating them, and because they've managed to persuade the rest of South America to support their 'cause', the rest of the continent too.
If they keep it up, especially not letting Falkland ships dock, the UN/NATO/EU will end up putting sanctions on them... then they'll get support from a nuclear Pakistan/Israel/Iran and that'll no doubt lead to WW3, then we'll all die... worst case scenario.
And Reds, it's interesting to hear that even foreigners don't see what the Argentines are getting at. I often feel my views are warped by the British media(which they are).
