#1 Britain will never give in to Argentina,the islanders have stated who they want to be ruled by,and it ain't Argentina.

#2 Does the Mapuche Liberation Front exist? If not, why not? Maybe something for the FO to look into.

#3 Right about now would be a good time for Obama to pledge support for the Brits in this matter. A strongly worded statement might actually keep Christina from doing something stupid. Well, it's a nice thought anyway.

#4 If I remember correctly, it was an Obama decision to re-open negotiations concerning the Falklands, I think even stating them as Malvinas, back when they were backing every hack in the OAS. It was not long afterwards Argentina publically stated their interest in the islands (and surrounding resources).

I believe the Obama opening the issue happened quite soon after the confirmation of a major oil reserve.

*off the top of the head, so don't quote without some research.

#5 British should demand that Argentina stop this war for oil and territorial agression etc before it starts. Make it clear that British citizens have lived their for 150 years and Argentinas imperialist ambitions cannot be allowed. Use the peacenick/marxist code words that apply and hammer them out so there is no confusion that somehow Argentines are there waiting for liberation or some nonsense.

#6 A good article from the international legal perversive, mainly to do withe the concept of Uti possidetis, which Israel also invokes.
Falklands are British, not Argentine
