    The war occurred because the islands were allegedly usurped in 1833.

    , 'on 3 January 1833 a British Royal Navy corvette with the support of another warship in the vicinity, threatened to use greater force and demanded the surrender and handover of the settlement.' And 'The act of force of 1833, carried out in peacetime without prior communication or declaration by a government friendly to the Argentine Republic...'

    When are the Argentine going to apologize to the islanders for their illegal invasion on the 2nd April 1982. All of this panders to their belief that they were fighting some sort of holy war. Nearly 36 years ago they did not want to know the veterans or the fallen much less venerate them. Today they are all heroes and the fallen have taken on a near saintly status. They are now martyrs to be avenged at some time in the future. We should not be having anything to do with a nation that wants to force itself upon the islanders, a nation that does not recognize the islanders or their rights.

    England has no territory called “Malvinas”. There is a “Malvinas Argentinas Partido” in Buenos Aires Province and Malvinas Argentinas, Córdoba, neither of which have any connection to England. However, Spanish penal colonists in South America are welcome to note that England and the English have a history, dating back to at least 1588, of massacring Spanish criminals. And the penal colonists have yet to be held to account for their hundreds of years of crimes against humanity.
