We said more than 2.5 years ago that Barack Obama’s offer to “mediate” between Argentina and the United Kingdom over British territory could easily encourage a Second Falklands War, and Argentina’s President, Cristina Kirchner, is sounding more and more like Leopoldo Galtieri every day. The only thing in her favor is that she is considerably better looking than Galtieri. As reported by Fox News, here is Obama’s Zimmerman Telegram–or actually worse, because Germany’s offer to help Mexico reconquer the western United States was contingent on the U.S. attacking Germany first.
- In a move one British conservative analyst called “hugely insulting to Britain,” the Organization of American States earlier this week adopted a declaration calling for negotiations between the United Kingdom and Argentina over the “sovereignty” of the Falkland Islands. While the U.S. delegation did not speak in support of the measure, it ultimately joined a consensus adopting it.
