Yes, I also have no doubts that the Falklands are British by right! I have this oppinion because of some reasons but the main one is that 99,9999999999% of the population WANTS TO BE British (just not to say 100%) and self-determination is the most important right of ANY PEOPLE - But politics a part, one thing is sure: an invasion or invasion force doesn't care a bit about what the local population wants or else Argentina wouldn't have invaded the Falklands in 1982, would it?
