THE ISLANDERS ARE PERFECTLY CAPABLE OF EXERCISING SOVEREIGNTY OVER THEMSELVES, THANKS:

Argentina vows to pursue Falklands sovereignty (James Sturcke, April 2, 2007, Guardian Unlimited)

The Argentinian foreign secretary today said his country's government would use "more firmness" in its attempts to gain sovereignty of the Falkland Islands.

Speaking on the 25th anniversary of the Argentinian invasion of the south Atlantic territory, which sparked a 10-week war with Britain, Jorge Taiana said he would remind the international community of what he said were the UK's failures over the islands.

"I have the commitment of the government to find more firmness in reclaiming sovereignty [of the Falklands]," Mr Taiana said, according to Clarín newspaper's website.

Perfect timing, eh?

What vultures the Argentines must be - they have picked their own bones clean, and are looking elsewhere.

The US should send a 688 to make a port-of-call - that will silence the Argentines for another 25 years.

If you can't kick the British when they're down, when can you kick 'em?!
