I must start this by stating I am "slightly" bias in this discussion, due to being British. I would also appreciate this not turning into a nation bashing thread (against either the UK or Argentina).
I am genuinely curious as to how the world views the current situation regarding the Falkland Islands. For the uninformed please read the following.
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the Argentina president is stating the UK is going against a UN resolution requesting both nations negotiate regarding the sovereignty of the islands, However David Cameron has stated on more than one occasion that there are three parties involved (not two, as Argentina keep implying), and it is for the islanders themselves to make the desision as to who they are and who they want to be. The islanders will be holding a referendum in May of this year to vote on sovereignty, with which I hope this will finally be put to bed.
I find this hard to argue with, and I think the current stance by Argentina is basically an act of war. In my view, it has nothing to do with the Islands themselves and more to do with the discovery of large oil reserves in the deep ocean beds surrounding them, and now our lovely tabloid newspapers are running wild with the story... . What are your guys views?
