Argentina gets support from FAG

Sean Penn has dropped in to tell the British they are not allowed to go all colonial over the Falklands, despite the Falkland Islanders wanting to remain British.

Sean Penn has accused Britain of colonialism and urged the government to open negotiations with Argentina over the Falkland Islands.

At a meeting with Argentine president Cristina Kirchner, the Left-wing Hollywood actor referred to the islands “the Malvinas Islands of Argentina” and said Britain should entered into a UN-sponsored dialogue over their sovereignty.

“The world today is not going to tolerate any ludicrous and archaic commitment to colonialist ideology,” he said during the meeting in Buenos Aires.

“I know I came in a very sensitive moment in terms of diplomacy between Argentina and the UK over the Malvinas islands.

“And I hope that diplomats can establish true dialogue in order to solve the conflict as the world today cannot tolerate ridiculous demonstrations of colonialism.

“The way of dialogue is the only way to achieve a better solution for both nations,” he said, according to the Buenos Aires Herald.

The Oscar-nominated Penn has long been a friend of South American nationalism, visiting both Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez and Cuba’s

Stick to bad acting Sean….leaving the whipping of Argies to professional soldiers and sailors.

      Exactly. Also, does it occur to him to ask why the whole of South America speaks Spanish with the exception of Brazil, which speaks Portuguese? We’re not talking ancient colonial history their either.

  • It shouldn’t matter what the UN, nor the World, nor Argentina, in fact not even what Britain thinks about the sovereignty of the Falklands. The people who live there should decide if they are Argentinian, British, or independent. Last I heard, they wanted to be British. It’s not colonialist in the slightest. It’s democratic.

      Hi Joel, i think the islands belong to Argentina, may be the malvinenses choise to be british and not indepedents becouse British people are paying for this malvinenss protection, this people from Malvinas are the tax payers cancer. I don t think Cameron could win next election and the British economy will collapse in the near feauture, then will see if the islanders can acfort to pay for militar protection.
      I don t think it issue will be solve in pace. I think in the feauture will be a new war and Argentina will be ready to fight against Uk. The cold war is over but Rusia and China are c

      all this people needs to go back to UK, the islands belong to Argentina and this gays are british, then go back to homeland, the problem is that uk homeland forsn t want this kelpers, plus are costing to Uk a lot of money, will see what happen when cameron and his party leave the goverment, there is gonna be a new budget cut and the islanders can not pay for protection, i am sure there is going to be in 7 years a new war and this time uk will not have friends to help, not even USA will help UK, kelpers, start learning spanish cos will be your lenguage in the islands

    Perhaps he should head back to wherever his ancestors came from. Surely to stay in the US is to deem yourself happy with colonialism over the Native Americans?

  • put it away

    You can’t fix this war, Spicoli.

    “And I hope that diplomats can establish true dialogue in order to solve the conflict” What platitudinous crap…why does anybody take Actors and Hollywood seriously?

  • Osiris

    What more can one say? A Failed dictatorship and dismal demogogic attempt at democracy joining forces with a convicted wife beater. Surely, a match made in heaven.

    So Sean Penn wants to take a group of islands whose inhabitants speak English and consider themselves British subjects, and giving control of them to a country who speaks Spanish.  How, exactly, does that reduce colonialism?!

    • Pepegalleta4

      well, is time for the islanders to start learning the lenguage SPANISH, remember all this people are in south America for free elrction, if this people doesn t want to speak spanish are free to go back to UK,

  • Pepegalleya4

    Malvinas belong to Argentina, Self determination doesn t work here, if the islanders want to remain British then go back to UK, even for UK people islanders value is 0, not even real British, KELPERS is how british name islanders, plus British tax payers are paying for KELPERS militar protection, cos islanders can t affort to pay. Kelpers are second grade british or less, please go back to UK, but not even British want this Kelpers in Homeland, Kelpers value: 0

      Who the hell are you!!!!!!  The defence of the Falklands costs 0.5% of the UK Defence Budget and once the oil flows the Falklanders will pay for their defence.

      If you think any one from the anglosphere would want to be ruled by Argentina you should read an recent article by Jeremy Warner in the Daily Telegraph.  They are trying to muzzle the press, their inflation is out of hand again.  That is if you can understand article written in the DT as your spelling, grammar and syntax are terrible.

      In Argentina 18 intellectuals, and leading citizens have written an open letter to Kirchner that she should lay off the Falklands and start working with people.  She is another Argentinian Peronista who will take her country backwards.

    Just forget about fools like Penn. Sometimes they see what they think is an easy target and have a go for some headlines. As Karau says, what about Hawaii, and any number of other colonised places.
