Clinton, Obama sell out Britain, Falkland Islanders
Argentina was celebrating a diplomatic coup yesterday in its attempt to force Britain to accept talks on the future of the Falkland Islands, after a two-hour meeting in Buenos Aires between Hillary Clinton and President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
Her intervention defied Britain's longstanding position that there should be no negotiations unless the islands' 3,000 inhabitants asked for them. It was hailed in Buenos Aires as a major diplomatic victory, but condemned in the Falklands.
There is nothing to talk about. The Falkland Islanders are determined to remain British and free.
Argentina's President is establishing a Socialist dictatorship in her country. Naturally the country is going to pieces economically, and she is going to try to pull a military stunt.
It begins to appear that there is no dictator, no Arab king, no president willing to undermine the constitution (think Honduras) that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama don't like.
