    Poor Argentina, having a Falklands’ sovereignty claim without a case can only mean that it is an illegitimate claim and worthless. Google: ‘Argentina’s Illegitimate Sovereignty Claims’ to find out why.

    Is it the wine? the water? or mendacious mysticism that so befuddels the Argentine mind?
    Their relentless pursuit of what is not theirs and never was is so evocative of Hitlers Mystical WWII claims about Europe…but then the Argentinians did support Hitler didn’t they?
    Maybe it’s the beer?
