UK PROVOKES ARGENTINA WITH THE DEPLOYMENT OF PRINCE WILLIAMS TO THE MALVINAS ISLANDS. (tags)

The Alliance Philippines today condemns Britain's Prince William deployment as a search and rescue pilot in the Falkland Islands, that the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said Saturday, a deployment which has infuriated Argentina. The 29-year-old, who is second in line to the throne, has been sent to the South Atlantic archipelago as a routine part of his duties as an Royal Air Force (RAF) Sea King helicopter pilot. We stand with the people of Argentina, the land of Commandante Che Guevarra , that Prince William’s six-week stint on the barren islands is a blatant imperialist imposition and an affront to Argentina. It has enraged the Argentinian people which stands that the Falklands or as they called it the Malvinas Islands are occupied Argentine territory The Alliance believed that his provocation came at the time ahead of the 30th anniversary of the war between Britain and Argentina over the Falklands. The windswept islands, home to about 3,000 people staunchly loyal to Britain, have been held by Britain since 1833. William, the eldest son of the heir to the throne Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, arrived in the British overseas territory on Thursday. The Falklands ( Malvinas) War of 1982. Although , we know that the Falkland Wars started on April 2, 1982, by the then-ruling junta in Argentina invaded the Falklands, sparking a 74-day war with Britain which cost the lives of 649 Argentine and 255 British troops., we believe that the Argentina has the right to exercise their sovereign right as a nation to claim what is theirs. We must remember that the Malvinas was annexed by Britain in 1883 and held it until then.

Brewing Crisis in the South Atlantic: Oil Exploration in the Malvinas Islands (tags)

For Argentineans the long simmering territorial dispute between Britain and Argentina is coming to a head, as a British oil rig travels to what analysts say is a 60 billion barrel reserve of high-grade oil located in a 200 square mile zone surrounding the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands. This would make it one of the largest oil reserves in the world. Argentina had instituted a naval embargo of the islands but has recently permitted the oil rig to land in Port Stanley, capital of the island.

The Great Game: U.S., NATO War In Afghanistan: Is the Entire World the Target? (tags)

"The longest war in American history prior to the current one was that in Vietnam. U.S. military advisers were present in the country from the late 1950s onward and covert operations were carried on in the early 1960s, but only in the year after the contrived Gulf of Tonkin incident - 1965 - did the Pentagon begin major combat operations in the south and regular bombing raids in the north. The last American combat unit left South Vietnam in 1972, seven years later. The U.S. (and Britain) began bombing the Afghan capital of Kabul on October 7, 2001 with Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from warships and submarines and bombs dropped from warplanes and shortly thereafter American special forces began ground operations, a task that has been conducted since by regular Army and Marine units. The bombing and the ground combat operations continue more than eight years later and both will be intensified to record levels in short order."

Blair joins the attack on Britain’s Muslims (tags)

Prime Minister Tony Blair has placed himself at the head of an ongoing and sinister campaign against Britain’s Muslim minority. This week he used his monthly press conference to solidarise himself with former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw’s attack on the veil or niqab, telling reporters that it was “a mark of separation and that is why it makes other people from outside of the community feel uncomfortable.” He also backed the decision by Kirklees council to suspend the young teaching assistant Aishah Azmi for refusing to remove her veil in front of male staff.

Contradictions, anomalies, questions mount in UK terror scare (tags)

The politics of the latest terror scare (tags)

Five days after UK authorities arrested 24 British-born Muslims and announced that they and their American counterparts had thwarted a plot to blow up trans-Atlantic flights from London to the US, neither the British nor the American government has produced any facts to substantiate their dire claims.

Britain’s airline terror plot: Questions that need to be answered (tags)

The claim that American and British security forces have thwarted a terrorist plot to blow up commercial flights between Britain and the United States should not be accepted uncritically. It is impossible to determine at this point whether or not such an attack was in the offing, although the mass media have, as usual, reported the assertions of the British and American governments as indisputable fact, without bothering to ask for any specific information that would substantiate the official story.

Hamas: A Pale Image of the Jewish Irgun And Lehi Gangs (tags)

The reality is that when faced with a superior military force, such as Britain possessed in 1947 and Israel does today against the Palestinians, terror is the underdog’s only viable weapon. Once a state has been established and legitimized, however, as in the cases of Israel and South Africa, the former “terrorists” tend to gain a veil of legitimacy as well. But legitimacy is now being denied Hamas.
