Falklands dispute

Quote Quote by Ryan_m_b View Post
Perhaps you missed my main point; considering the islanders do not want to be taken over by Argentina why are so many countries supporting Argentina's claim? In fact why do people in Argentina even want to take over a series of islands who would rather not?
As far as I know, the Falklands were somewhere in history forcibly taken from Argentina, conversely the UK thought it had a claim whereas Argentina disputed that.

Personally, I think it is mostly up to the islanders since I don't believe in historical claims.

That's a pretty sick comment to make. If that was an attempt at humour then you failed utterly.
The level of indifference varies between conflicts. Sometimes, the world is sick.
