Another slap in the face for Britain:...sides with Argentina and Venezuela

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 Chavez’s Venezuela and Daniel Ortega’s 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.

I'm an American of Irish descent, and I support the Special Relationship with the UK - despite all the past abuses my ancestors endured the UK has been a reliable ally to the USA for the last century. This President's insults to them make me want to puke. I hope fervantly that we can turn this mountebank out!

Lamh Foistenach Abu!

"Obama and his flunkies sided with Argentina and Venezuela. The US citizenry sides with Britain and will use this as another nail to seal Obama’s coffin. "

I'm not so sure. Americans like Brits but the Brit government??? How many know where Argentina is, let alone The Falkland Islands?

Obama and his minions never seem to think these things through.

Do they really want another war over the Falklands?

Still haven’t got over your grudge against your British ex-mother-in-law? Every British story, up you pop spitting poison.

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.
