#1 In the recent Falkland Islands referendum, 99.8 percent of the Islanders voted to remain a British Overseas Territory.

We recently re-learned that tyrants see statistical summaries related to the will of the little people quite differently.

#2 "...clearly Argentine and Latin American sphere of influence."

French Guyana is an integral part and important strategic asset of the French Republic and the EU. Located of the South American continent it borders Brazil and Suriname.

The Maldives Falklands are islands in the South Atlantic, located about 500km off the Patagonian coast.

#3 Seems an appropriate post for the "Not this $hit again" picture.

Not surprising that, as the Argentine economy, starts circling the drain they would try the old distraction ploy.

Uh, yeah. It's a bit surprising that she is still yammering about the Falklands. It's getting tedious and even she must understand that she cannot have those islands.

#5 still yammering about the Falklands.

As AlanC notes, it is not about the Falklands, it's about the Argie economy. La squirrela!

#7 "We do not go around condemning the use of nuclear energy with military ends, and at the same time send out nuclear submarines"

Submarines, being mobile, aren't a permanent fixture in the South Atlantic (tho perhaps they should be.)

Maybe we need a library of "Look Squirrel" translations.

Probably a squirrel graphic as well.

#9 Lest we fergit, Argentine control of the Falklands = Argentine influence over BRAZIL, in both the Mercusor Bloc + BRIC, etc. = BRAZIL-ARGENTINE CONFEDERATION IFF NOT "UNION" FOR GREAT POWER OR SUPERPOWER STATUS.
