  • I think they should read this the Brits who live on the islands. The 4 of February of 1540 a Spanish boat captained by Alonso de Camargo arrived at the Malvinas islands and remained in the archipelago until 3 of December of the same year. The British government insisted until well into the twentieth century that John Davis discovered the islands in 1592 and grounded in that his rights of sovereignty. However, modern British government and historians recognize that John Davis did not discover the islands. In 1592, date of the supposed discovery of John Davis, the islands already appeared in numerous Spanish maps.
  • So funny to see the little Argentinians whine about it being their islands because some Spanish guy seen it from a ship as he sailed past. Britain built the place. Hands off pedro
  • I think that the Argentine people are indoctrinated from an early age on untrue history about the Falklands islands. The people that live there and have always lived there are from British descent and they should be allowed to live in there own country in peace.
  • Hands off Pedro It's BRITISH .
  • its funny that Argentinians seriously believe that the Falkland islands are theirs. I find it amusing
