Britain can do 'nothing' to prevent Argentina retaking Falkland Islands
Admiral Sir John "Sandy" Woodward also said that America now had little interest in supporting Britain in any conflict as a stable Argentina was more important to the State Department.

In a letter to The Daily Telegraph, Adml Woodward said Washington was pushing for negotiations over sovereignty and "significantly the islands are already being called the Malvinas by the US".

With the end of the Cold War and emergence of Asian powers Nato and Britain were not as important to Washington which in 1982 played a significant part in providing satellite intelligence and missiles to British forces.

If they can't defend their territory, without our help, against Argentina, of all places, maybe they deserve to lose the islands.

That's bullshit that we're taking Argentina's side, though.

The real issue is a giant untapped oil reserve just offshore, it's said to be bigger than Saudi's reserves.

You're probably right. The UK's cutting it's defence budget by scrapping its only aircraft carrier, so no harrier jump jets, yet still acting like it's got an empire by throwing money around like confetti at foreign aid! Not a chance they could defend the Falklands.

I disagree. Frankly we should take no side whatsoever. It is none of our business.

The British are our enemy, however. They have perpetrated economic warfare against us almost consistently since the 1740's.

Most of us never even learned about the 'Long Depression' The Long Depression lasted 65 months starting in October of 1873 and running until March of 1879. According to the National Bureau of Economic Research it is the longest period of contraction on record.

In WW-I, prior the Hollywood and Newspapers vilifying Germans, the majority of Americans supported entering the Great War against the British.

The British, and specifically the City of London, have long been exploiting and attacking the USA and her best interests.

Heres the stupid thing, the UK had colonized those islands before Argentina ever existed as a country. Argentinas claim to them is based on absolute bullshit, they want them for the oil and the fact they are close.

I think the British basically took them from the French or Spanish in the early 1800's.

If anybody has a claim its the original owner of the islands.

British rule of the Falklands since 1833.

Modern Argentina has only existed since 1880, as a result of the collapse of the Spanish empire and the civil war in that region between 1814 to 1876.

Basically the British turned up when nobody was there and everybody was fighting because of the collapse of the Spanish empire and nobody actually gave a shit about islands of nothing until Argentina got a sniff of oil and invaded in 1982.

People see the distance between the UK and the Falklands and Argentina and the Falklands and automatically think, they are closer ergo they are Argentinian.

The British PEOPLE are not our enemy if anything you have an issue with the bankers not the people. But having said that Argentina is none of our business or it shouldn't be either for or against. Our founding fathers said not to get involved in foreign entanglements too many have forgotten those warnings.

The port is actually called Darwin, named as such 25 years after the Darwin visit.
