1. Interesting.

Don't know what to make of it yet, but it certainly fits the general tenor of things in Latin America that Latin America has had it with outside (mainly U.S.) interference and is not going to take it any more!

United, they can throw off the bully U.S. and its lackeys, Canada and England. The U.S. and Canada were very pointedly not invited to join the new all-Latin America organization, CELAC, one of whose main purposes is to defend individual countries' sovereignty and independence by, at long last, pulling together as a region and exercising their collective clout.

The Falklands are certainly a sovereignty issue for Argentina. And the Brits have been pushing the dispute by claiming too much of Argentina's oil in the Atlantic near the Falklands and Argentina's coast.

It's worrisome, though, as a potential flash point for U.K. and U.S. joint military action to destabilize, "divide and conquer" and destroy the leftist democracy movement that has swept the region. That's why I say I'm not sure what to think of it. But I'm pretty sure that Argentina's leaders and their allies have thought this matter through quite thoroughly and know what they are doing. It looks like they have jointly chosen this issue as a beginning point for establishing the independence of the region.
