To mark the anniversary of the liberation of the Falkland Islands from Argentine occupation in 1982, the elected government of the Islands has arranged the following program for Friday 14 June 2013. Read full article
Quite right - if the RG's can celebrate their invasion we can certainly celebrate our victory over evil and an undemocratic country willing to impose her rights over and above the rights of the people of the Falklands!
The trolls have, so far, been remarkably quiet on this. Perhaps they are waiting for the 'official' protest from the RG Government before committing themselves?
Sarcasm aside, I believe it is only proper that the Islanders give appropriate thanks for their deliverance from the nation that would oppress them and to remember, with gratitude, the human cost of that deliverance. The human cost, I believe, should not just be for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the Islanders freedom but also those who will bear the scars, disfigurements, disablements and pain which resulted from the action required to obtain said freedom until their dying day. I salute, and remember, them.
I think there are some unfortunate omissions from the programme of events. For instance, I would start by firing an argie out of a gun. Then there would be a semaphore exhibition with suitable British regiments using their regimental colours. On the other side, argies would have white flags. Then there would be a footrace where the argie team could try to beat their record for running down Mount Tumbledown. Then there could be a flypast with argie jets closely followed by Eurofighter Typhoons, with the Typhoons demonstrating how air-to-air missiles work. As a high point, there could be a British submarine demonstrating how to sink a warship. For the finale, perhaps a montage of body bags being loaded on to a ship and the ship sailing away to the west. Accompanied by a rousing chorus of God Save the Queen. But we shouldn't always look to the past. So, perhaps, something more forward-looking? A little filler entitled How to destroy Buenos Aires. With options. From the air. From the sea. From 7,000 miles away.
@3 Conqueror... I think I love you.. haha! That's the best thing I've read in a long time. I love a bit of military supremacy and show of force.
Have a great day.

My, my, my!!! Someone seems to have touched a nerve.
Sorry son, I have standards, I don't do retards or charity cases
................and if you can't take a joke, you shouldn't have been born Argentinian then should you!!!!
@6 Yeah, it's a shame the way the country responds to terrorists, but I'm on about another soverign nation actively campaigning to occupy land that doesn't belong to them, which is why a show of force is good.
Oh, and, for the record, I have an A-Level in Maths and Mechanics.
Our stolen sovereignty, not a subject of jokes!.Greetings
@12 Any sovereignty claim you thought you might have had was signed away by your forefathers in 1850. Take it to the ICJ or stop whinging.
@7 I think you misunderstood. It's not Conquistador, that's a Spanish word meaning invader, occupier, genocidal murderer from Europe. We are talking Conqueror. As in HMS Conqueror. One of the finest vessels ever to sail under the White Ensign. The only nuclear-powered submarine ever to have SUNK an enemy ship with torpedoes. Some rustbucket hijacked by a third-rate state on its way to the knackers yard. BUT, the ever-helpful British have made sure that it's truly knackered now!
@9 I welcome your helpful and friendly comments. I have a monument for your ass. It's shaped like a bayonet. Except it's six foot long. As an indication of appreciation. No problem for you, I'm sure. My mother is, sadly, deceased, so it's not nice of you to speak of her that way. But if I can point out that your knowledge of biology and human physiology seems a little vague. I actually have the ideal tool with which to caress your crotch. It's called a kukri. It's that bent Gurkha fighting knife. Seems like the ideal implement with which to unzip your sausage and two veg. Sorry, chipolata and two peas.
@12 Oh, I don't know. In most parts of the world sovereignty comes from the word sovereign. Implying a MALE monarch. Now, when was the last time anybody saw a MAN in latam? Nancy boys, yes. Lots of those. Oh, I'm sorry. Gust is the word usually used for the jets of air expelled by nancy boys as they get poked. Didn't mean to bring up your personal habits. Still, at least you added bury, indicating a willingness to accept the usual solution. Then there's stolen. A subject on which I bow to your expertise. There isn't much you haven't stolen. Land, lives, businesses, expertise, assets, money. Yep, you've pretty much stolen it all. But I can offer you a little plot of sovereignty. Six feet long, six feet deep and three feet wide. Sole occupation. With the sound of waves five hundred feet over your head. Very soothing.
HMS Duncan will be available to come down,
A few subs, a nice fly past,
Yep sounds like a brilliant idea
odd,, one can post twice lol.
@6 funny how a couple of Iranians can bomb your country and cause chaos, what do you do though? Cuddle up to them, beg for some international trade and other shit, whereas we do something about it, why because we are not cowards like YOU. Believe me those two arseholes have done more for justice by NOT dying, they will now have to suffer in jail for the rest of their sorry live's and believe me there are a lot of people rubbing their hands at the thought of these two rocking up in their prison. They will be in hell instead of Martyrs with seven virgins etc, the soap awaits those arseholes.
Our Sepoys are going to have a lovely day in BA. Delaying the trains, blocking drains, buying up all the available bog rolls, making more potholes in the major roads, winding up the brownshirts, dropping viruses into IT systems etc etc. It will be a celebration...
You'll have to put that monument in your ass soon
It won't be going anywhere-it was built by the British. the same as the WW1 monument that loser of yours trained on-only his training must have been bad as he didn't make the Olympics.
Oh and if you want to see two more monuments, I believe that CFK and Timmerman will one day stand proud in Stanley (albeit covered with Stinker crap as they fly past), as they have done more than any Argentines to ensure the Islanders will remain British or gain their independence.
The empohasis on June 14th is Commemoration - we give thanks for our Liberation and Freedom from occupation by a Foreign Nation- Argentina, by the British Forces, especially those that paid the ulimate price or were wounded - we also mention and regret the Argentine casualties as well.
HMs Duncan? no, but a frigate and the Clyde will be here.
17 - wonder if those 2 have realised that 60% of prison officers are ex HM Forces - I would not like to be in their shoes when they go inside!
Well said Conq, Master of Ceremonies.
wonder if those 2 have realised that 60% of prison officers are ex HM Forces - I would not like to be in their shoes when they go inside!
I do not know if the figure of 60% is accurate but I do know that a 'fair number' of the 'screws' are, as you say, ex HM Forces.
Justice is sometimes served in odd ways.
Love it, - Well worth doing.
Is there going to an Argentinian 'surrender' celebration in BA?
Compare and contrast Argentine celebrates an unprovoked attack by a facist tyranny.
The falklands celebrate liberation from a foreign oppresion
Yeah and the British celebrate the invasion of Iraq... and?
Really? When do we celebrate that? I must have missed it. Did we mint a coin or something?
25 Tedious Teen Troll, TTT
Yeah and the British celebrate the invasion of Iraq... and?
Please back up that statement with links and articles, otherwise
You are LYING
You are making stuff up again. Your 'superior' intellect should have told you that your opinion (and making up of stuff - namely lying) must be backed up by EVIDENCE.
Now since the British don't celebrate invading ANYWHERE, you must be lying. If you are NOT lying then produce the proof.
No thought you couldn't.
Lying is bad for your soul. Perhaps you should tell your Priest about this lying that you do. I'm sure he'll give you some Hail Mary's and a few Our Father's, but it won't count for anything in God's eyes UNLESS you are actually repentant and change your lying ways.
As for the Falkland Islanders it is only right that they commemorate and CELEBRATE being liberated from the murderous military ARGENTINE Junta.
Only Argentina CELEBRATES the beginning of a war that they started, and then subsequently lost. What a bunch of losers you all are.
This is like celebrating a failed attempt by terrorists. None of the actions of the junta are worthy of celebration.
