Yes, I deliberately chose the Unflattering Photo on Drudge’s site! The 21st-Century version of Eva Peron has once again demanded from the UK the “return” of the “Malvinas”. How far will she get this time? Here’s the text of the letter, as reported in the UK Telegraph:

“The question of the Malvinas is also a cause embraced by Latin America and by vast majority of peoples and governments around the world that reject colonialism.
“In 1960, the United Nations proclaimed the necessity of ‘bringing to an end colonialism in all its forms and manifestations’.
“In 1965, the General Assembly adopted, with no votes against (not even by the United Kingdom), a resolution considered the Malvinas Islands a colonial case and inviting the two countries to negotiate a solution to the sovereignty dispute between them.
“This was followed by many other resolutions to that effect. In the name of the Argentine people, I reiterate our invitation for us to abide by the resolutions of the United Nations.”
