ARGENTINA / UK / MALVINAS / FALKLANDS : Cristina Will Appeal To UN Over Islands Militarization.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/southamerica/falklandislands/9067995/Argentina-to-complain-to-UN-over-militarisation-of-Falklands.html  ...With 2:09 Captioned Video...after Ad.

     In a widely hyped address before military veterans...President Cristina Kirchner again charged Britain was acting like a colonial power...by sending a powerful new warship, nuclear sub and an heir, Prince William...to patrol the disputed Falklands/Malvinas islands.
     With her new red and raw thyroid scar clearly visible...Cristina said she would complain to the UN about the deployments...and claims the islands' fate has become a 'global cause.'
     She pleaded for UK PM Cameron '...to give peace a chance, not war.'
     Notably missing...was her banning Chilean flights to the islands...over Argentine airspace.
     With his new Russian arms and planes...Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez has pledged to support Argentina in any skirmish...but a former Peruvian minister believes Lima would not back Argentina in a war with the UK.
    No surprise that Cuba's Fidel Castro is backing Argentina's claim to the Malvinas. 
    The anciano Castro recently mocked the UK for sending only a destroyer.
    The FT describes the state of the islands...by quoting Jorge Luis Borges...who described it as..."two bald men fighting over a comb."
