Hi everyone!!!

Today my blog will be a little more politic than other days…

Are you heard about the Malvinas or Falkland Islands?

These islands are so famous by the “Guerra de Malvinas” or “Falklands War” happened in 1982 between Argentina and the United Kingdom by a long sovereignty dispute.      

These islands are in the south of the world in front of Argentine coast and currently are governed by the United Kingdom like an overseas territory and this is a big problem for both states.

In my opinion the islands are Argentine because four arguments;

First a geographic argument; the islands are in the South-American continental platform. (460 Kilometers front the Argentine coast.)   

Second a historical argument; because when the Spanish empire falling down his territories passed to Argentine sovereign by the called “Jus Posidetis.

Third a Demographic argument; The Patagonian aborigines came to the Malvinas in canoes, leaving archaeological pieces like tops of arrow and remains of canoes. 

Finally it´s amazing how the nature gives his argument to the Argentine claims because so many species of birds migrate from the Argentine to the Malvinas to nest there.
