Democracy? The islands were stolen by the UK. The islands were Argentinian until the UK invaded the islands.
+23
level 56
Mar 8, 2015
They were never Argentinian. The Argies landed on what was British territory since before Argentine existed, and when the British government learned about it, they threw the Argies out. Argentina's been whinging about it ever since because it's easier for the government to distract a brainwashed people with irridentism than to sort out a failed banana republic.

I think Salz is being a little bit disrispectful with us by calling Argentinians as "Argies". Bear in mind that the Islas Malvinas are from Argentina, despite which government says what it says. Some of us have been brainwashed, some of us have been not. Still, the Islas are ours. Please inform yourself about what it's called "continental platform" and where do the Islas rely on that.
+14
level 32
Mar 10, 2015
So even though they were uninhabited when the English arrived (before Argentina was a country), the population wanting to remain as is, and being mainly british descendents, it is Argentinian? Why exactly? You talk about brain washing but sound like you're straight out of a class with Kircher. Any time Argentina as political/financial issues, they go all angry about the Falklands. Continental platform means nothing, imagine if it did now? UK and Ireland would be what, French?

Absolutely right to include then in the quiz as this is a geographic quiz and they are geographically part of S. America. By the same logic, should you not include Trinidad and Tobago, since the major part of that country (Trinidad) is also part of S. America?

So Argentina - mainly populated by the descendants of European immigrants - claim islands also populated by the descendants of European immigrants on the basis that said descendants should have no democratic right of self-determination. Right. Perhaps the Argentinians could show some good will by returning the land they stole from the natives back to them first... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conquest_of_the_Desert

totally agree - The history of who got to the Falkland Islands/Malvinas is really confusing, the British were there, so were the Spanish and the French and the Dutch too. They all came, went and sometimes came back again - so purely on this basis you really can't say who should 'own them'. So how should you decide it - surely on the basis that the vast majority of people there want to remain British, not Argentinian. What would the point of giving them to Argentina be ? Who would it benefit - Argentina perhaps, but certainly not the people who actually live there
+2

Sep 8, 2015
I'm not Argentinian or English (or British). On paper the islands were Argentinian about 150 years ago but there wasn't a single Argentinian living there. The settlers were British and still prefer to remain British. Let the lawyers decide. If the courts rule for Argentina, the settlers could always declare independence and then join the Commonwealth. Back to square one.

The way I see it is that both countries have some form of equal claim to the Islands. Instead of wincing about who it belongs to, let the people decide. There was a referndum and the inhabitants of the island decide. That land is British and some people have to deal with that, plz bear in mind I am neithier British or Argentine so i am quite unbiased in my opinion unlike some in this comments sections... and btw alex2108 you have started a war my friends...

It is obviously that people from Falkland will decide to be a British Overseas Territory instead of being part of Argentina. Time before the Falklands War, the British government sent British people to live there, most of them had their descendants there!

Jun 16, 2018
There is a misunderstanding. The people who live there have roots on the islands before Argentina was a country and they want to be British still. If you want to turn back the clock that far, then Argentina would not possess the Falklands because Argentina would be possessed by Spain ;)

You're overstating the support for joining Argentina there. The referendum asked whether the inhabitants wanted to carry on being a British Overseas Territory. At least one of the three who voted against was known to want independence.

Platitude is correct. There is no connection between Guyana and Guinea. Guiana, sometimes called "Guyana",is a region of Northern South America, containing two Venezuelan provinces, a Brazilian state, Suriname, Guyana and French Guiana, (the latter two taking their name from the Guiana region). In fact, during colonial times there was Spanish Guiana, (joined Venezuela), Portuguese Guiana, (joined Brazil), Dutch Guiana, (Suriname), British Guiana, (Guyana) and French Guiana. There is no connection to Guinea, although they have similar names.

Okay yeah a lot of our schools suck but I think whether you learn this or not really just depends on the class you take.

Blox6man: I applaud you for taking the initiative to learn things on your own. Unfortunately, the American education system has been reduced to force feeding students ways to pass a plethora of standardized tests instead of broadening their general knowledge by expanding their intellectual capacity. It's truly sad.
