Obama refuses to back local inhabitants over Falklands
A FRESH transatlantic row has blown up after the US said it will not recognise next month’s Falklands referendum.
The 3,000 islanders are expected to overwhelmingly back remaining British in a historic poll on March 10.

David Cameron ordered the vote in a bid to silence Argentina’s claim to the territories. But in a brutal snub, the US Government has said its neutrality over the islands’ sovereignty will not change — effectively branding the result irrelevant.

The news has infuriated No 10, threatening to overshadow new US Secretary of State John Kerry’s first official visit to London on Monday to meet Foreign Secretary William Hague.

A senior Foreign Office source said: “We hope that all countries reflect on the outcome of the referendum and how it might affect their attitude to Argentine bullying of the Falkland Islanders.”

Re: Obama refuses to back local inhabitants over Falklands
Of course the people there will want to remain British - they are British.

It's like asking the Argentinians if they want to remain Argentinian or if they'd like to now be Bolivian.

What other outcome will there be?

...plus the 30% inflation rate in Argentina is a bit of a bummer...

It's got fuck-all to do with Obama anyway...

Re: Obama refuses to back local inhabitants over Falklands
Do people think the evil British stole these islands from the poor Argentinians? That's bullshit, the Argies never owned or occupied them! For a few centuries they were used as temporary ports by the French and Spanish, but when the British first occupied them, nearly 200 years ago, these are the inhabitants they found:

"Also taken on board, Duncan reported, "were the whole of the (Falklands') population consisting of about forty persons, with the exception of some 'gauchos', or cowboys who were encamped in the interior." The group, principally German citizens from Buenos Aires, "appeared greatly rejoiced at the opportunity thus presented of removing with their families from a desolate region where the climate is always cold and cheerless and the soil extremely unproductive".

So the present inhabitants, although they may be of British descent, are the only people who ever lived here properly and established a community. It's not even in Agentinian territorial waters.

Re: Obama refuses to back local inhabitants over Falklands
I was talking about this with a friend, and he said Obama probably secretly hates the British because of what they did to his grandfather, soI googled him andgot this:

Mr Obama’s paternal grandfather Hussein Onyango Obama was part of the Kenyan independence movement when he was arrested in 1949 and jailed for two years. His family allege he was tortured by his British guards to extract information about the insurgency.

“The African warders were instructed by the white soldiers to whip him every morning and evening till he confessed,” said Sarah Onyango, Hussein Onyango’s third wife, told the Times. Mrs Onyango, who Mr Obama calls Granny Sarah, described how “white soldiers” carried out “disciplinary action”. “He said they would sometimes squeeze his testicles with parallel metallic rods. They also pierced his nails and buttocks with a sharp pin, with his hands and legs tied together with his head facing down,” she told the paper.

They were, and they said they didn't want their own country when Israel was established. It was only after Israel kicked their ass every time the Arabs attacked them that they decided that yeah, having their own state might not be a bad idea.

Re: Obama refuses to back local inhabitants over Falklands
argentina have no claim to the islands,they were inhabited by english people before the formation of argentina.
argentina didnt exsist at the time so i find it strange they claim what they do...
the inhabitants are going to vote on the matter ,the same way the scottish are about to
in both cases i think youll find there wishes are the most important

Argentina didn't even exist at the time of the first settlers. Why don't you demand Argentina returns their land to the indigenous people and fuck off back to Spain then?
