JimB As to Crimea, I suggest that you actually read the history of the peninsular - paying particular attention to the Stalin era, when the indigenous people - the Tatars - were either murdered or exiled so that ethnic Russians could take over their lands. Furthermore, it is a well documented and publicised fact that the current population of Tatars in Crimea refused to participate in the referendum because they knew that it was rigged. And if you persist in denying that the referendum was blighted by extreme intimidation of the electorate, then there's frankly no helping you.

Lucas R liberadAs*  +1
JimB Unnecessary - especially by someone from the country that invaded Ukraine. Besides which, the Falklands don't need to be "liberated". The people who live there unanimously wish to remain with the UK.  +1
Lucas R people that colonize the islands after the bitish expelled the argentine population*  +3
Anticalaca Jimb, for you and your UK government a referendum of only 1,500 implanted inhabitans in Malvinas counts, but a referendum of almost 2,000,000 genuine citizens of Crimea who wish to became again part of Russia does not. How stupid is that.  +1
JimB Fellas, perhaps you would be able to hold the moral high ground if it wasn't for the fact that you are all "invaders" of a continent and land to which you do not belong. When you have all returned to Spain, Italy, Germany (or wherever else your ancestors came from) and return Argentina to the native Americans, only then you can lecture the UK and the Falkland Islanders about colonisation.  +1
JimB Anticalaca - are you aware that Crimea's indigenous population - the Tatars - boycotted the referendum in protest at the Russian invasion? Are you aware that Ukrainians in Crimea either left, in fear, or were subject to serious intimidation at the polling stations to ensure that they voted for Russia? Are you aware that there was only a Russian majority in Crimea because, under Stalin, the Tatars were persecuted, starved, murdered and exiled to the far reaches of the USSR and that ethnic Russians were encouraged to move to the Crimea and steal their lands? No......of course you aren't.  +1
Anticalaca Not even close, "fella". Our history was wide different like the brittish colonization, who really erradicated the indigenous people in the US for example, were the english invaders killed almost any indian, to the point of they are almost erased. In Argentina according to statics, 56% have indigenous blood. So, we're righteous inhabitants by any mean (and i mean, any).  
Anticalaca And Jimb, you know nothing. I read a lot related with the history of russians and ukrainians; in fact, even the english autors i read (wich were very subjetive against russians and formidable pro-brits) like Paul Johnson or Alexander Werth deny most of the stupidities you know by catching some news.  
Anticalaca The facts is: you supported a referendum of 1,500 inhabitans from an island with a military base far away from your countrie, who expelled the previous inhabitans. And you dismiss a referendum of nearly 2,000,000 people who supported became part of their hystorical country, ahead of the changes of the same history in it long road. 1,500 against 2,000,000 , extreme difference, saving the less. How stupid is that.  
Lucas R this went too far, the white americans also have their fare share of indian blood, anway, the racial thing is retarded and has nothing to do with, plus i would have no rigth to this land in that case, since all my granparents were from europe. The european made the country, the british just stole the argentine settlement  
JimB Anticalaca - of course.......the Spanish conquistadors were all lovely, peaceful people who didn't commit genocide on a grand scale and subject hundreds of thousands more to slavery......... This is the difference between you and me. I'm not trying to defend the UK's colonial past. You are trying to defend or deny your colonial roots. As such, it isn't worth anybody's while continuing the debate with you.  
JimB As to Crimea, I suggest that you actually read the history of the peninsular - paying particular attention to the Stalin era, when the indigenous people - the Tatars - were either murdered or exiled so that ethnic Russians could take over their lands. Furthermore, it is a well documented and publicised fact that the current population of Tatars in Crimea refused to participate in the referendum because they knew that it was rigged. And if you persist in denying that the referendum was blighted by extreme intimidation of the electorate, then there's frankly no helping you.  
JimB Lastly, your repeated claim that the Crimean referendum is more legitimate than the Falklands referendum on account of it being supported by 2 million people (as opposed to a mere 1500 people) is an utterly redundant analogy and brainless claim. It is akin to saying, for instance, that a corrupted election in China would still be more legitimate than a clean election in Liechtenstein purely on account of China's population being 20,000 times bigger than Liechtenstein's. Duh!
