According to history, Argentina barely has any claim to the islands yet seem to have the acquisition of the islands as core of their foreign policy. What are your thoughts on this as a whole and especially those that are Americans?
This is is pretty much what I expected. Knowing US support for self-determination, this is not a surprise in a slightest.eggg.... God! I don't think I've even HEARD a conversation about the Falklands in quite some time. I have to agree and disagree with drirrational at the same time.
I think that as long as the people of the islands want to be British, then the US will back them to be British. However, if they choose to be Argentina then the US will back them to be Argentina. It all depends on the people. Just as they did with the Ukraine. The Ukraine decided they wanted to independent and the US is backing them. In the past the US tried to hold territories that did not want us, but we learned our mistakes and when a country says... we want to be this, the US backs them for the most part. Sometimes directly, other times indirectly. It all depends.
LOL well, the people have the right to decide. No one has the right to decide for them. I do wonder why they have not opted to be their own independent state though.This is is pretty much what I expected. Knowing US support for self-determination, this is not a surprise in a slightest.
I would imagine this was because they want the support of the British government and their protection. Argentina has been at times quite aggressive in their stance towards the islands. Also, I think that they like the fact that Britain can represent them on the world stage among other reasons, mainly economic.LOL well, the people have the right to decide.
