And one day Argentina will stop marching backwards

The Telegraph

An Argie Minister is talking big, but first their army will have to stop marching backwards:

The Falkland Islands will belong to Argentina one day, according to the country’s chairman of the foreign affairs committee.

But Daniel Filmus said Argentina would not try to take the disputed islands by force. “There’s no suppression which lasts forever.

“It’s just a matter of how much time it takes for it to be understood that there must be dialogue and the need to find a mechanism for diplomatic agreement to get us there,” he told Radio Five Live.

Speaking ahead of the 30th anniversary of the start of the Falklands War, which began on April 2 1982, Mr Filmus said Argentines “have enough patience and know what is right”.

Argentina has revived the dispute over the islands it calls Las Malvinas as the anniversary approaches.

Mr Filmus told the programme: “It is in our constitution and it is in the hearts of all Argentinians that sooner or later we will regain the Malvinas, which is just 700km off our coastline and more than 14,000km from the British coast, along with all the riches that are there – fishing, oil and the Antarctic projects.

“And this is something that concerns the sovereignty not just of Argentina but the whole of Latin America.”

    More crap from the mouths of Argies. When they say things like “there must be dialogue” they can never substantiate why the UK should bother showing up to the discussion table, let alone hand over the Falklands. The most they can come up with seems to be nonsense about the relative distance between the respective countries and the Falkland Islands – and that matters not a jot.

    The Falkalnds are not 14,000kmmfrom the British coast. They are part of the British coast!
