Falklands flag ban ‘Could hit British relations across South America’

Posted by seumasach on December 24, 2011

After alienating Europe through our attempted sabotage of the Eurozone, the talk was that we had allies and partners elsewhere. The reality is rather different: we are making enemies everywhere. We are clashing head-on with the new multipolarity. Failure to recognise this new reality, the product of the failed Anglo-American hegemonic project, will have disastrous consequences for Britain.

Posted by seumasach on February 21, 2010

Argentina’s Foreign Minister, Jorge Taiana, will meet and ask his counterparts at the Rio Group summit in Cancun, Mexico, next week to condemn what he called Britain’s “unilateral and illegal” exploration in the islands. The left-wing Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, pledged his support for Argentina, saying Britain was “violating international law”. “Get out of there; give the Malvinas back to the Argentine people. Enough already with the empire,” he said.

War is not an option in resolving Argentina’s dispute with Britain over the potentially oil-rich Falkland Islands, a senior Argentinian minister said yesterday. “War is excluded from our horizon,” the Deputy Foreign Minister, Victorio Taccetti, said.

Voice of Russia – 2009-09-16

British geologists have discovered a wide array of oil and gas fields in the Falkland Islands. The British oil explorer Desire Petroleum believes that up to 3 billion barrels of oil and gas are currently on the Falkland Islands’ shelf – something that flies in the face of findings by the Edinburgh-based British Geological Survey Agency. Its experts insisted that as much as 60 billion barrels may be recoverable on the shelf. If these estimates prove right that may well rile the world’s oil-rich nations, not least Libya and Nigeria.
