The Falkland Islands are a chain of British Islands in the South Atlantic Ocean, as I'm sure you intelligent well endowed folks know Once again they're in the News because Brazil has sided with Argentina along with most South American nations in saying that the Islands should be Argentinian. But, it's just crazy. The whole point of 'Self-Determination' according to the UN is that the people who live in a place should decide what country they are part of. The Falklanders are 100% British. Before the British arrived the islands were un inhabited. Argentina has NO claim to them what so ever, except that the next nearest land is Argentina. By that logic Alaska should be given to Canada, regardless of what the Alaskans themselves want. It shocked us in the War that America refused to help us defend ourselves when Argentina invaded. And the Falklanders and the British really feel alone on this issue that the whole world is un fairly ganging up on us. Just thought I'd bring some attention to the issue and would appreciate some feed back.
