It has been over 30 years since the Falklands War, and though nobody is shooting now, sabers continue to be rattled on both sides.

What do you think should happen to the Falklands, and, if you are willing to explain, why?

Very hot potato. Wouldn't touch it. It is like politics, can't predict who will win nor what the future holds.

People had spoken through referendum, didn't they?

Status quo for a very long time. That's what the Falkland Islanders want, and the UK is willing to enforce what they want.

It seems that there is no Argentinians in this forum.


I believe that the government of Argentina would deny that there is any military gesture from their part. According to them, the Malivanas/Falklands is an issue about Decolonisation. However, there are like 2 Argentines living there, and more than a thousend people that want to remain under British rule. Given that, I don't believe that there will be any change in the forseeable future.


Still, the issue of the Malvinas is very much present, and an important part of Argentinean nationalism. I do not critizise that, it may even be healthy to them, as a source of Patriotism.


Argentineans respect very much the British character, and they rivalry in that issue, is not really poisonous.

Full integration with the UK/EU.

The population is fully British, and the islands were uninhabited before colonization.

So nobody has more rights to it.
