Margaret Thatcher is a titan on the world stage. Cristina Kirchner looks pitiful in comparison

It is Margaret Thatcher Day in the Falkands, a perfect moment to celebrate the great leadership of the Iron Lady, and to recall her stirring words at Port Stanley on January 10, 1983 upon visiting the Islands for the first time after their liberation:

Today again the Union Jack flies over Port Stanley, and may it ever fly there. So we in the Falkland Islands and in Great Britain re-dedicate our lives to the cause of freedom and justice of people here and everywhere. We have given an example to the world, and hope to many of those who do not enjoy these great qualities. May we also act as a beacon of hope to them, that so long as we defend that which is ours now, they too one day may enjoy these great things.

On this same day, Argentina’s president Cristina Kirchner has launched yet another bizarre tirade against Great Britain, accusing it of wanting “to invade and militarise” the Falklands. It follows her outburst last week, when she wrote a letter to David Cameron demanding that Britain hand back the Islands. As I noted at the time, it was a letter filled with falsehoods and with no regard for reality, and was a reflection of Kirchner’s increasingly delusional thinking.

Dear UK,

For leaders, you grew Churchill and Ms Thatcher.

We grew Bubba, the Hillabeast and the Quota baby (or they grew on their own - like a cancer.)

Gads, we certainly screwed up somewhere.

That’ll raise our country IQ by a large factor...and perhaps you can just feed those folks to your muzzies.

You're being unfair.

Obama was born a British subject. If the Brits get credit for Churchill, they ought to share in our shame for Obama.
