Last week the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, delivered his annual opening address to the Special Committee on Declonisation urging them to finish the task given them on their formation. In 1961.
” .. the process of decolonization is not complete. Sixteen Non-Self-Governing Territories across the globe — home to nearly 2 million people — remain to be decolonized, “ said Mr. Ban, via an envoy, to the opening session of the 2012 deliberations of this sub-sub-Committee of the General Assembly, adding, “The Special Committee is in a position to develop innovative approaches and generate new dynamics among all concerned.”

There's a problem with that for Argentina.

The original owners of the Falklands, the first to discover and claim the islands, were in fact, the British.


I beg you pardon ?

There is no formal agreement as to whom of the Portuguese, Spanish or British discovered the island first. The only sure things is the first reported sighting was made by a Dutch explorer and that amerindians from Patagonia visited the islands.

The first nation to claim the islands was France and not Britain...

This kind of facts and historical truth is often sidelined by mainstream scholars for some reason but thank you for reminding us.

While the French did indeed make a claim on the Falklands, this was after a number of British explorers visited and named the islands.

The French certainly have more of a claim on the Falklands than do the Argentinians, but then again, the Argentinians have bugger all legitimacy.
