Another slap in the face for Britain: the Obama administration sides with Argentina and Venezuela in OAS declaration on the Falklands.
President Obama was effusive in his praise for the Special Relationship when he visited London recently, but his administration continues to slap Britain in the face over the highly sensitive Falklands issue. Washington signed on to a draft declaration on the question of the Malvinas Islands passed by unanimous consent by the General Assembly of the Organisation of American States (OAS) at its meeting in San Salvador yesterday, an issue which had been heavily pushed by Argentina. In doing so, the United States sided not only with Buenos Aires, but also with a number of anti-American regimes including Hugo Chavezs Venezuela and Daniel Ortegas Nicaragua.
The declaration calls for Argentina and Great Britain to enter into negotiations over the sovereignty of the Falklands, a position which London has long viewed as completely unacceptable. It also comes in the wake of increasing aggression by the Kirchner regime in the past 18 months, including threats to blockade British shipping in the South Atlantic.

We have got to get that guy voted out of the Whitehouse.
I knew it was going to be bad, but I just couldn’t imagine the totality of his destructive actions.
Ugh, I cannot wait until he is a flunky at a Chuck-E-Cheez.
So where are the men with guts in the Congress by passing their own counter resolution? Silly me, the only representatives (save a very small number) with any balls at all are the wrong gender to have them in the first place.
Bet the Brit Obama supporters are real happy right about now.
Hell who am I kidding? He could spit on the Queen and they’d applaud him.
Sadly, you’re probably right.
All the communist thugs hang together.
When I see crap like this I can’t tell if zero thinks he’s going to win or lose in 2012. I’m pretty sure he’s going to lose, and very big, so I think he’s just pushing every last thing he can get his hands on into the proverbial closet.
There may not be 2012 elections. When can the American People enter the WH and frog march the fraud to nearest prison?
This dude has some friggin serious issues.
Congress needs to act immediately to blunt this moron’s actions.
Remember the massive effort the Brits made to support Obama? And England further attacked every American with their global warming crap, nearly inflicting a crushing tax on us by giving us Obama. Support for him there was nearly universal. I don’t mind a bit for them to learn this lesson well.
They stabbed the USA right in the back. I hope they remember the sting of this for a long time,,,and the IPOD to the Queen, and the returning of the Churchill Bust,,,etc etc.
Pay attention Brits,,, see if you can learn. No sympathy for them until they support Sarah. “F” em.
Chavez promised that if Obama sided against Great Britain, he wouldn’t let the Russians activate the missile systems they’re building for him until the after inaugural day 2013.
Just send her a slide... and a projection screen...
To our British friends - Obama doesn’t speak for us. In fact, he doesn’t speak for the vast majority of the American people.
Try to bear with us - by this time next year, the adults will be back in charge again.
Hey,That stupid Bastard did not know how many states there were!
I am not surprised.
Obama should have been manager of a Dairy Queen
He doesn’t like America, Israel, or Britain.
His Administration is going to face serious political headwinds soon.imho
Why does this putz think he can give away other people’s stuff?
I'm not so sure. Americans like Brits but the Brit government??? How many know where Argentina is, let alone The Falkland Islands?
After he leaves we are going to have to send apology notes to all of our former allies.
Obama and his minions never seem to think these things through.
Do they really want another war over the Falklands?
but he likes taliban, backs alqaeda in Libya, supports the MB for the Arab Spring... which the lying calls a pro democracy movement...loves the Russians and the PLO... need we say more?
Still haven’t got over your grudge against your British ex-mother-in-law? Every British story, up you pop spitting poison.
How many British voted for Obama ?
Or was he elected by people somewhat closer to home ?
No different than Palestine, obama, will attempt to use American power to move boarders and he will defend those as a international operation. Our boarders he could give a “flip” about.
