I cant help thinking that this latest Photo Op for Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner asking the Pope to intervene to get discussions going with the UK about Sovereignty of the Falkland Islands (Las Malvinas) is going to horribly backfire. The Islanders have voted, and it is now time to respect their right to Self Determination - and not be used as a deflection for The Pres of Argentina to cover up her aweful management of the Economy

The overwhelming majority of Falkland Islanders are Protestant and as such the Pope, should he try to intervene, would hold absolute NO Authority with the Islanders at all.

This latest ploy has made her weaker Politically on the International Stage. Too much Noblesse Oblige is paid to the Vatican, to the RC Cult that is not true to its own Edicts. IMO

What can the Pope really do in matters such as these?

Well it could be interesting to see a Catholic Pope siding with a Protestant Queen.
That said, he was a Jesuit. Biggest bunch of "pffft, excommunicate me then, I'm still going to follow my conscience" troublemakers in Catholicism. He'll side with justice.

Do they discuss any other politics in Argentina other than the Falklands?  Their economy is also shot, they have defaulted on payments and have inflation of 25%.  Yet all they keep banging on about is this.

From what I understand the two hate each other. I don't think the Pope is going to be giving her any kind of support.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Thank god we live in a country (and world) where his opinion on such matters makes zero difference. The people voted, end of story. Unless, of course, God object through the Pope :whistle:

Well the Pope has already stated publicly that he thinks the Falklands belong to Argentina and that the war was a defensive one. So it's not a stretch to think that this is the one matter where he would back her up.

This being said, Argentina will never have the ability to take them from Britain.
