Obama Regime Stabs Britain in the Back on Falkland Islands

It's official: under the treacherous foreign policy of the Obama Administration, the US government has become an enemy of America's closest ally, Great Britain:
Washington signed on to a "draft declaration on the question of the Malvinas Islands" passed by unanimous consent by the General Assembly of the Organisation of American States (OAS) at its meeting in San Salvador [Tuesday], an issue which had been heavily pushed by Argentina. In doing so, the United States sided not only with Buenos Aires, but also with a number of anti-American regimes including Hugo Chavez's Venezuela and Daniel Ortega's Nicaragua.
The declaration calls for Argentina and Great Britain to enter into negotiations over the sovereignty of the Falklands, a position which London has long viewed as completely unacceptable. It also comes in the wake of increasing aggression by the Kirchner regime [of Argentina] in the past 18 months, including threats to blockade British shipping in the South Atlantic. …
Washington backed a similar resolution in June last year, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it clear in a joint press conference with Cristina Kirchner in Buenos Aires in March 2010 that the Obama administration fully backs Argentina's calls for negotiations over the Falkands, handing her Argentine counterpart a significant propaganda coup. The State Department has also insultingly referred to the Islands in the past as the Malvinas, the Argentine name for them.
It is hugely disappointing that the Obama administration has chosen once again to side not only with the increasingly authoritarian regime in Argentina, but also with an array of despots in Latin America against British interests. Mrs Clinton should be reminded that 255 brave British servicemen laid down their lives in 1982 for the freedom of the Falkland Islanders, who are overwhelmingly British, following the brutal Argentine invasion.
Don't blame Shrillary. Her boss has had it in from the beginning for our British brothers. His petty insults (returning Churchill's bust, giving a conspicuously crappy and unusable gift to the PM, etc.) have escalated to potentially inflicting permanent geopolitical damage, even forcing Britons to live under autocratic Argentine rule.
Barack Hussein Obama II has made it obvious that he identifies more with Kenya, his ancestral homeland, than with America. Britain's attempts to introduce civilization to Kenya did not always go smoothly. The savage Mau Mau rebellion could not be repressed without harsh measures. Now the Manchurian Moonbat is taking his revenge on behalf of his forefathers.
