Latin American imperialism

You receive a letter from your Government: "Hello, we regret to inform you that effective tomorrow you will be a North Korean citizen. In addition, the area of land where you were born, where you now live and where many of your ancestors were born is now the sovereign territory of North Korea. Their army will shortly move into bases close to where you live, you will be required to learn your new local language and the administration will very slowly taken over by theirs. Apologies for the inconvenience. Kind regards, Your soon-to-be-former-Government."

Yes, the new Community of Latin American and Caribbean States has decided Argentina's claim to the Falklands is legitimate. Watch this new Latin American imperialism. It is not trying to survive against an evil mighty Britain; It is trying to viciously and aggressively dominate and occupy a small group of islands with a population of under 5,000 people who are almost entirely of British origin (there were no humans there previously) and who just want to live their lives. In this respect, Falkland Islanders have more right to be there than Argentina does to exist as a country.

Those people, many of whom have been there for many generations, deserve to keep their identity. The British government never has the right to sell them out and it has a duty to afford them full protection against any form of aggression.
