Hand back Falklands, Venezuela tells Blair

Downing Street today refused to be drawn into a fresh war of words with Venezuela's president after he called on Britain to hand over the Falklands to Argentina.

Yep, the argentines want the rocks again.

Hugo Chavez said the islands belonged to Argentina and demanded Prime Minister Tony Blair give them back.

Why does chavez want them? Who knows? The population is mostly of British decent and really dosen't want the argies ruling them. As it is they are almost an independent nation. The only things the British government is responisble for is forgein diplomacy and defence.

Mr Blair infuriated Mr Chavez earlier this week when he said he should respect the rules of the international community.

Nothing pisses off a dictator more than being told to follow the rules.

The Prime Minister also said he would prefer to see Venezuela's ally Cuba function as a true democracy.

Nice sentiment, but not likely to happen.

Mr Chavez responded to Mr Blair's comments by branding him "a pawn of imperialism" and "the main ally of Hitler" - a reference to US President George Bush.

Blah blah blah.

In his latest attack on Mr Blair today, Mr Chavez said Britain had violated the sovereignty of various nations - citing the case of the Falklands.

The Falklands are a British possesion, not an independent nation.

"We have to remember the Falklands, how they were taken away from the Argentinians," he said.

AFTER the argies invaded.

Speaking in the western Venezuelan city of Maracaibo, he added: "Those islands are Argentina's. Return them, Mr Blair. Those islands are Argentina's."

No, they are Britans and have been for thier entire populated existence.

Downing Street would not rise to the attack.

I would have told him to shut up and keep his mitts off.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said: "I don't think it is to anybody's benefit to get into a war of words on this. The position of the Falkland Islands has been stated many times. That remains the position.

Essentially, "Keep Out".

"I am not sure comments like this are helpful and I think it is better to draw a veil and move on."

What? Is that surrender talk?

Britain recaptured the Falklands after Argentinian troops invaded in 1982. Hundreds were killed on both sides in the three-month conflict.

Give the locals access to full auto weapons and there are going to be alot more dead argies next time around.
