Distraction is always a novel strategy for failing regimes, a tactic which Galtieri found to his cost.
This government is expert in trying to dodge the bullet and in blaming others for its woeful behaviour and this week the likes of Cafiero (foreign minister) et al were doing victory rolls after the EU said this:
“Now however after Brussels, the EU acknowledges there is a sovereignty dispute between Argentina and the UK over the Malvinas Islands, and that this dispute must be solved in accordance with international law, ”which has always been Argentina's position”.
However, surely they must realise that His Majesty's Government is never going to change its position.
“The Falkland Islands have clearly stated their wish to continue being British and its only up to them to decide on their future,” Foreign Office sources indicated in London, according to quotes in the Argentine media.
“This is a position supported by International Law and the United Nations Charter, which is extensive to all UN members. We will continue to defend the right of the Falkland Islands to self determination in all international forae. All countries should recognize the Islanders right to decide on their own future.”
