The Falkland Islands...Islas Malvinas?
Yes, Argentina still thinks they own the Falkland Islands. It is quite a sore spot still with the people and more so the further south you get. I read the US has not taken an official position on who has rights to the islands. Now, one of the things I´ve always liked about our country is that we seemingly are not afraid to express ourselves about what we think is right regardless of whether it is our business or not...be it human rights in China or democracy in Latin America or whatever. But I have to say it was refreshing to see that we actually kept our mouth shut on this issue and didn´t take a side. Nice to be anonymous sometimes.
