Fernandez should give it a rest. Despite her popularity the economy is a shambles. Leopoldo Galtieri also tried to use the islands to create naturalistic fervour and distract attention from his crumbling regime.

Seeing as the Argie President just nationalized two private companies without the consent of the Spanish shareholders (Repsol was spectacularly shafted and the Spanish government vowed revenge), I don't think we need any lectures from her on what's fair or not.

“Argentina has historic, legal and geographic arguments in favor of our sovereignty over the Malvinas,” he said.

No you don't! Your country has never had control of that island ever.

Except that now, officially, the US refers to them as the Malvinas the same as Argentina. This, does not suggest a neutral stance.
