She beat the Argies hands down,
But also destroyed industry in the northern heartlands,
So although some may hate her,
Publicly rest in peace,
And privately= our business and not today thanks,
Also to a future point,
Defence, protection of freedom.

The process of building the Navy’s new aircraft carriers has reached a key stage with the installation of the mighty gas turbines

Briton: Congratulations on the HMS Elizabeth progress and hopefully for the delivery of the F35 fighters to go along with her, but frankly with 5 Tornado fighters and one of your destroyers you can not only keep our Argentine friends at bay, but can whip their arse as well.

Now that you mention it. Uruguay declared Germany war in february 1945. If it wasn't for them, Europe would've been under Nazi control to this day.
Vamos Uruguay! Liberator of Europe!!!

We did conq.
You fought them for 6 years and couldn't stop them. As soon as Uruguay entered the war, the Germans surrendered. You should thank us for not being a Naz.... for not speaking German.
Damn and there was me thinking it was the Argentines entering the war that did it! So you finally got one up on them then, nothing since though.Apr 08th, 2013 - 09:38 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Apparently the Uruguayan President was recorded stating Hitler had only got one ball, while Eva Braun was an old cow. They were so upset they went and topped themselves.
Viva Rude Presidents!

Well congratulations on your country single handedly defeating Nazi Germany. Oh I'm sorry I meant as part of 50+ countries that allied to defeat Germany.
How many countries defeated Argentina in 1982?
PMSL You are good value mate.

You can tell when someone is talking BS, and Hague is full of it.
Gave inspiration to those living without political freedom, he says?
How does that match with Thatcher denouncement of Nelson Mandela and his ANC as “terrorists”, something even David Cameron ultimately admitted was wrong.
What kind of 'great' leader who wishes to 'inspire those living without political freedom' would have called Mandela a terrorist? I'll tell you which type...
the same type that was also best of pals with Pinochet who deposed an legitimately and democratically elected president and which the old hag never opposed or said anything about. Get the picture? Well, there is more...
She was a steadfast friend to brutal tyrants such as Augusto Pinochet (as already mentioned before), Saddam Hussein and Indonesian dictator General Suharto (“One of our very best and most valuable friends”). All of them 'great' champions of freedom and liberty. *facepalm*
Had enough? well there is more....
She played a key role by using her influence to publicly advocate for the 2003 attack on Iraq, an illegitimate war by international law standards (unlike the first Gulf War).
Had enough? Still more....
What about her domestic political legacy of rampant inequality and greed, privatisation and social breakdown in GB?
Therefore, spare the rubbish of 'champion of freedom and liberty' mumbo jumbo. Moreover, people praising Thatcher's legacy should show some respect for her victims, which were many....

Injured and arrested in street celebrations over the death of former British premier
Recall that Margaret Thatcher supported and protected the genocidal Pinochet.
A couple of criminals.
Miguel song Piero Cantilo and truly portraying the criminal and genocidal Margaret Thatcher
LADY VIOLENCE AND CHILDREN
Lady violence firecrackers clouds
Words flamethrower and criminal reason
Architect built a fire of fear
Machete arrogant and pit scar.
Lady of the blows and curses
With hands gillette gun and sex
Lady violence where will the children of thy womb
Muscles resistant leather
Punishing enemies screaming and kicking
Someone who loves me, killing living.
Lady violence rages
Revolution and war, national pretext
For many people release their anxieties,
Your sleeping body and animal instinct.
Energetic lady wild fields
Patron of the jungles and brutal work
Lady of the men who grow up in the footprint
Deformed lady, crazy in the city.
Where are the children of your womb
With effervescent lead flakes
Mistreating animals and felled pine
Destroying forests, breaking the valleys,
Withering grass ranging treading.

Comrades, twenty-one years ago today [referring to 1953] it was from this same balcony, and on a bright day like today, I last spoke to Argentine workers.
It was then that I recommended they bring their organizations, because there were difficult days were ahead ...
I was right, and in assessing the coming days, or the quality of the union, that through these twenty years, trade unions have remained firm, and today some beardless idiots claim to have more merit than those who fought for twenty years ..
So , who would these beardless idiots be ?
Are they the ones who bought you and Helber lap tops ?
