This explains why the US isnt backing the UK in the Falklands oil drilling dispute.
Read it and see. Done? Okay, you might ask, this explained nothing. Why is the US snubbing one of our best friends?
It is in there: specifically, these two paragraphs:
Relations between Buenos Aires and Washington since Barack Obama came to power have been less than ‘special’.
Argentine president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is said to be in Mr Obama’s bad books after refusing to meet with the U.S. assistant secretary of state for the region, Arthur Valenzuela, in December of last year.
So it isnt that we dont like the UK… its that Argentina does not like Barack Obama. So in order to appease Argentina, and get them to like BO, we need to take their side by not taking Britains. If you are in the Ones bad books, he will fall all over himself (sometimes literally) to show you that you are better than any American.
There it is. All for One, and the One for himself.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
