So you also think stopping trade and boycotting Iran is also open to criticism, or maybe Pakistan as well because they are buying Iranian gas for their energy needs?
So it isn't open to criticism and therefore right?
Some very interesting articles on this issue on the BBC. Not all of Argentina supports the claim and there's massive concerns that the Falklands are again being used to mask the failings of the government on Domestic policy. I really don't see how you can ignore the rights of the Islanders themselves to choose their future.

I believe the British Government were actually considering a dual sovereignty plan just before Argentina invaded - Which was basically the military juanta diverting attention from home.
Also, British colonalists had been on and off the Island since before Argentina was an independant country. Also there were no native inhabitants when European settlers first arrived, making Argentina's claim quite thin in my eyes.
In addition, the people see themselves as British, and want to stay as such. Deciding factor for me.
Who cares who its nearer to, if you rock up uninvited, with guns, and seize control, it aint yours (not anymore anyway!)
