“Todos somos estupidos… Pero cada uno de nosotros, ignora distintas cosas. (Albert Eistein)
“AMO A MI PATRIA, … A QUIEN TEMO ES A MI GOBIERNO” (Anonimo)
La Republica Argentina ingresó al grupo de países civilizados (podríamos decir: “des-salvajizados) con La Constitución Nacional de 1853, que propuso Juan Bautista Alberdi en su libro “Bases y Puntos de Partida Para La Organización Política de La Republica Argentina”
La Provincia de Buenos Aires, y su capital, la ciudad de Buenos Aires, (estrictamente hablando) NO formaron parte del grupo fundador de La Republica Argentina. Por razone$ económica$, Buenos Aires no quería ceder los ingresos aduaneros del puerto más activo y poderoso; y siendo la provincia más rica intento durante 7 años” formar una nación soberana e independiente. Halando en criollo, “intento hacer rancho aparte”. Pero Juan Bautista Alberdi les gano esa pulseada. J. B. ALBERDI no solo fue el autor de nuestra Constitución, fue también el más brillante Canciller de TODA América. JBA no solo escribió “Las Bases…” también escribió otro libro, tan, pero TAN importante que se anticipo varias generaciones al reconocimiento internacional de su valor sobre la discusión en el tema del derecho de las naciones a la guerra. JBA Titulo a ese Libro “EL CRIMEN DE LA GUERRA”
Como esto lo escribo pensando principalmente en mis criollos compatriotas americanos de habla inglesa en esta nota solo daré algunas generalidades, y un anuncio.
El anuncio es que: Para cuando pase este bullicio y sea posible dialogar he creado (esta en formacion) un nuevo blog. (En realidad son DOS una version en castellano y la otra en ingles).
1) http://EUdeTA.wordpress.com (Estados Unidos de TODA América)
2) http://USofWA.wordpress.com (United States of WHOLE America)
Al escribir pienso en Uds. pero también en los 30 millones del resto de mis compatriotas tan o MAS desinformados que ninguno.
Intento hablarles de una de las mejores Constituciones del Mundo (la de 1853), de “LAS BASES”, de “GOBERNAR ES POBLAR”, de “EL CRIMEN DE LA GUERRA” y especialmente Del Lema “AMO A MI PATRIA…. A QUIEN TEMO ES A MI GOBIERNO…”
Por ahora les anticipo que JB ALBERDI directamente nos habla de este “estúpido conflicto en el Atlantico Sud” claramente nos demuestra (con valor internacional) que “los criminales” de esa guerra NO fueron los militares (de ninguno de los dos bandos, ellos solo fueron las víctimas. Los criminales fueron ambos gobiernos. La Primer ministro Thatcher por un lado y El gobierno militar Argentino sostenido en aquel tiempo por USA. – Pero a no confundir: “Una cosa son los Militares en el GOBIERNO, y otra cosa MUY DISTINTA es los militares en su funcion de SOLDADOS. Por otro lado: si nuestra Presidente (que “se dice es abogada … pero pocos lo creen) leyese a Juan Bautista Alberdi, podria solucionar esto en menos de una semana, Pero no se hagan ilusiones NI siquiera yo lo creo… la solucion vendra de parte de LA GENTE, Uds y nosotros, NO de nuestros gobiernos.
Falkland Islands Anniversary: Argentina Demands Handover Of ‘Las Malvinas’ 30 Years After War

People walk past the Malvinas Falklands war Memorial in Ushuaia, Argentina, Sunday, April 1, 2012. April 2 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the military confrontation when the country was defeated by the United Kingdomfor the remote archipelago in the South Atlantic, the Falkland Islands, known as the Malvinas by the Argentines.
USHUAIA, Argentina – Argentina’s president said Monday that she’s asked the International Red Cross to persuade Britain to let its DNA experts identify unknown soldiers buried in the Falkland Islands.
Thirty years after Argentina and Britain went to war over the remote South Atlantic archipelago, Cristina Fernandez says universal human rights demand that both countries work together to give those remains back to their families.
Her much-anticipated speech on the anniversary ofArgentina’s April 2, 1982 invasion of the islands was focused on promoting dialogue and understanding. She said her government sets a global standard for protecting human rights and vowed to “respect the interests of the islanders” as Argentinaseeks to peacefully regain control.
“We don’t have war drums, nor do we wear military helmets. Our only helmets are those of construction workers, working for the inclusion of all,” she said at the city’s Monument to the Fallen, honoring the 649 Argentines who died in the conflict.
Prime Minister David Cameron said in London Monday that Britainhad to come to the islanders’ defense in 1982, and will do so again if anyone tries to deprive them of their liberty. The 74-day occupation ended when British troops routed the ill-prepared Argentines in hard-fought trench warfare. In all, 255 British soldiers and three islanders were killed.
Fernandez called Cameron’s statement absurd and ridiculous, noting that Argentines were also deprived of their liberty at the time, living under a 1976-1983 dictatorship, supported by outside powers, that had kidnapped and killed thousands of its own people.
“I am proud of having made promoting human rights one of the pillars of our state,” she said. For this reason, it’s impossible to consider that Argentinawould not also protect the rights of the 3,000 islanders, she argued.
Britain has refused Argentina’s repeated calls to negotiate the islands’ sovereignty, saying it’s up to the islanders to decide. Before, during and after the 1982 conflict, the islanders have over whelmingly said they want to maintain British protection.
For about a year now,Argentinahas been intensifying its campaign to pressure Britaininto sovereignty talks, a theme it pushes in every international forum. Argentina’s historical claim to the islands Latin America knows as Las Malvinas has support across the region, and got moral backing last week from a group of Nobel Peace Prize winners who scolded Britainfor ignoring U.N. resolutions urging talks.
Argentinahas tried seemingly every way possible to pressure Britainshort of armed conflict. The government has closed off shipping routes and air space. Unions have refused to unload British cargo or accept British-flagged cruise ships. Fernandez’s ministers have sought to close off British imports, sue British investors and banks, and block oil development off the islands’ shores.
It adds up to an “economic war” that has made life difficult, but each move also prompted islanders to develop alternative supply routes, said Dick Sawle, a member of Falkland Islands legislative assembly.
Meanwhile Argentina seems no closer to recovering the territory that fell under British control in 1833, and islanders say there’s little more that can be done to pressure them. “I think that Brazil, Uruguayand Chile will see what they’re missing in theFalklands, and at that point it just becomes a lot of shouting across the water that can be ignored,” Sawle said.
While the president explicitly sought to reassure the islanders several times in Monday’s speech, feelings on both sides have hardened. A group of radical leftists faced off against riot police outside the British embassy in Buenos Aires, and online flame wars have shown no signs of letting up.
“Penguin News” Editor Lisa Watson said she tries to find the right tone as she responds through public Twitter messages. But it didn’t help when Argentines discovered that the newspaper’s photo of Fernandez had been saved under a crude insult.
“It never occurred to us that the filename would be so transparent. It was hugely embarrassing, particularly now as we were seemingly winning the image war,” Watson’s colleague John Fowler said. “Before that, Lisa had been pretty continuously receiving hundreds and hundreds of nasty sexually insulting messages a day.”
Argentinahas variously tried to charm, occupy, negotiate and threaten its way back into the islands. In the 1970s, it established a direct air link withBuenos Aires, supplied them with gasoline, paid to educate island children and otherwise tried to build ties.Britainwas lobbying the islanders to accept a Hong Kong-style handover before the junta decided to invade.
For many islanders and Argentines, those 74 days of armed occupation remain the only personal connection they’ve had.
There were other attempts to build ties in the 1990s – a series of agreements on shared fishing and oil rights, shipping and air links and other exchanges – but nearly were abandoned in 2003 when Fernandez and her late husband and predecessor, Nestor Kirchner, began trying to isolate the islands instead.
“Thirty years and now we find it again, we are worried we are going to go through it all again, another invasion,” islander Mary Lou Agman said at Sunday’s commemorative march in Stanley by the small Falkland Islands Defense Force.
Islanders should relax, because another invasion will never happen, said James Peck, an islander with dual Falklands-Argentine nationality after marrying an Argentine and moving to Buenos Aires, said he saw the pre-anniversary war of words “fueling itself and becoming hysterical.”
“Someone has to speak out for common sense,” he said. “For me Argentina has real dignity these days, and I’m amazed that grown up politicians cannot sit down and talk civilly to each other. I think that’s really sad. Not everybody’s getting stoked up by all this.”
Polls show that the Malvinas claim draws Argentines together only when a military solution is off the table.
“The soveriegnty campaign seems correct to me. I don’t think there’s any other road but the diplomatic one, although I don’t have confidence in anything this government does,” said Martin Dhers, who joined a veteran’s day crowd inBuenos Aires.
Yearning for common ground, several veterans were holding a quiet ceremony at the Argentine war cemetery in the islands, on a lonely bluff near the scene of one of the most intense battles.
“To return to this little piece of land, which for me is a little bit of my country and apart from that, being here is so pleasing, to be among the people that were once our enemies, that which we can now live together with – it’s just really proof that we human beings are not like animals,” said Juan Carlos Lujan.
