Malvinas next-of-kin deny any soon exhumation of Argentine fallen at Darwin cemetery

Thursday, November 27th 2014 - 05:16 UTC
Full article 60 comments

The Malvinas and South Atlantic Islands fallen next of kin commission, in a public statement said that exhuming and identifying remains of Argentine soldiers buried in the Falkland Islands Darwin cemetery is a most personal issue for each family, strictly humanitarian, not decided and thus rejects any political intentionality in recent statements on the matter.

    Sounds fairly political me!
    Where are the islanders in this statement?
    German relatives of their WW2 fallen came to terms long ago with the notion that their boys fought and died bravely for the fatherland but that the world is a better place for their defeat. The same is true for the Argentine casualties of 82.

    It looks to me that señor Delmira H. de Cao and his committee are worried they'll be out of a job if the bodies are returned to Argentina!!

    Meanwhile, nobody has asked the Falklands for permission, or made any formal application even to discuss possible procedures, let alone exhuming bodies.

    In Argentina the government propaganda tactics arm, and the self-serving cemetery committee use the veterans and the families like pawns, as they squabble.

    It's an unpopular and emotionally charged issue.

    One might think The government would be wise to discard this plan - people are pissed off with them enough.

    What exactly is this Commission and how is it constituted? It's quite obviously pushing an overtly political agenda while claiming not to.

    On the one hand the Commission rejects “ that the issue be debased with political internationalities in what should remain in the strictly humanitarian field” and on the other it insists in “warning that the process which opens with the forensic studies could lead to the crystallization of the British objective of transferring the remains of the Argentine soldiers from Malvinas to the continent, which would erase all traces of the Argentine determination of recovering the Islands and would make their sacrifice in vain.”

    Not to mention their first point, which is the usual attempt to dictate whether British local government is entitled to participate in consideration of a British local issue.

    Would anyone like to bet that the much-vaunted “consultation” process with families “providing them with all the necessary information in the event of a forensic task, so that they can adopt a conscious and thoughtful decision, balancing pros and cons in the event of such actions” in actual fact involves persuading the families to leave the bodies in situ?

    Pass the sick bag, Alice.

    Was this pile of contradictory crap written by an idiot?

    ”1) Sides involved in the decision in the event of forensic studies are: the Republic of Argentina; the UK of Great Britain and North Ireland and the relatives of the Argentine soldiers buried in the Darwin Cemetery.”

    Nope, and that statement is itself political trying to erase FIG (and by extension the islanders). While it is true the UK holds sovereignty over the islands the argument that FIG should not be involved is ridiculous. I imagine in this case responsibility has very clearly been transferred to FIG and has nothing to do HMG.

    “... which would erase all traces of the Argentine determination of recovering the Islands and would make their sacrifice in vain.”

    That's not really an argument *against* the exhumations.

    As said before, there's no honest way for Argentina to “recover” the Falklands, as they've never legitimately held sovereignty.

    Their illegal invasion and occupation of the Falklands in 1982, as well as their unreasonable treatments of the legitimate inhabitants, has pretty much made the British position of allowing the Islanders to decide set in stone, as well as the Islanders determination to avoid Argentina having any control over their freedoms.

    I'm sorry to say this, but the sacrifice of these men was in vain before it even happened.

    This political wrestling with the dead- who have no say for themselves, is abhorrent.
    The responsibility for those fallen is with relatives concerned; and with the Islanders on whose land the graves are situated.

    Some truth in what he wrote - also some of the usual 100& Argentine mythical fantasy verbage tripe.
    1. Nothing will ever happen either way until the Arg Organisations decide to directly approach the Falkland Islands Govt. Simple fact - as they have been told many times by London.
    2. No Arg bodies were misidentified when moved from temporary battlefield graves to Darwin. Plenty were already unmarked and unnamed and others after the battles had their identity deliberately withheld by Arg officers after battle when they were asked by the British soldiers who was this and that dead person as they were cleared and removed from the battlefield for initial temporary burial.
    These lads have lain in peace for 32 years - let them lie. Their God knows who they are.

    No one will likely have any problem with Argentina attempting to identity those unknown graves. However, they will need permission/permits from FIG, that's only right and proper. I can well foresee though a whole bunch of people turning up with spades and a film crew, only to then cry to domestic and world media when denied entry or access.

    I'm sure FIG and the FO are savvy enough to know this; but the more Argentina are made to go through FIG the better.

    There seems to be some confusion with this “apolitical” commission.

    In the past, after liberating a country from an invader, a nice gesture by the liberated nation is to cede the site of their war graves to their liberators (the obvious example of this it Tyne Cot, near Passendale, Belgium - the final resting place for nearly 12,000 soldiers) - it costs little and it's not as if a liberating nation is likely to claim that because of the bodies they now own the country that they liberated.
    It is not customary to cede anything at all to an invading nation after liberation, partly because they might try and expand from the graveyard of the war dead, and partly because people who invade other countries aren't generally well liked by the people they invade. The Argentine Military Cemetery is not Argentine soil, or under Argentine jurisdiction. It's not under British jurisdiction either, they can't help but know this, having been told enough times to register with even the thickest of malvinitus sufferers, and yet they still can't quite manage to actually ask the right people.

    11) We insist in warning that the process which opens with the forensic studies could lead to the crystallization of the British objective of transferring the remains of the Argentine soldiers from Malvinas to the continent
    [[, which would erase all traces of the Argentine determination of recovering the Islands]]
    [[And would make their sacrifice in vain.

    We demand from both governments the necessary guarantees to avoid such sacrilege.

    1, moving from the Falklands to the continent==seem ok it is ends all the political jargon
    To use the dead for political gains..
    2, erase all traces of argentine determination of recovering the islands==sound an even more reason to send the dead back, and end this argentine claim once and for all…

    3, we demand both government,==I know,, stop insulting the islanders, and ask them, after all its their islands not Argentina’s….

    4, make their sacrifice in vain.

    And what abt the brave innocent British and island casualties,
    They died because an aggressive dictatorship illegally and violently invaded tiny islands 300 miles from Argentina to cover up the mess and corruption by the argentine government,
    -the sacrifices of our brave men/women would be in vain if we just handed them back to another dictatorship, again covering up the corruption in destroying what was once a great country, and now no better than a banana republic of the lowest order..

    I see even the Trolls are too embarrassed to comment on this.

    There are, for instance, German War Graves in the UK and vice versa.
    The location of these graves has no relevance to sovereignty whatsoever.

    On numerous occasions Argentina mentions only the UK and fails to give any democratic voice to the people of the Falklands.

    It is about time the UK remove all the BoT''s from the C24 decolonization list. If Argentina (or Spain) have a problem with that they should go to the ICJ.

    Of course this is just petty politics, now what I dont understand in the end who really owns the cemetery in Darwin and pays for its upkeep?? Wasn't it the Argentine families (NGO), or its the Arg gov't (why does the Argentine dimplomacy request this from London if they dont own the cemetery??) or its the FIG who London sends them to talk to ??

    But if the cemetery is owned by the Arg families why dont they just do what they want to with it??

    I would think that there is no Argentine ownership at all - they are there under sufference of the FIG only.

    There was funding for creating the cemetary from a wealthy Argentine individual.

    Regardless, how land is used, and who does it, will fall under existing regulations and a permits process.

    Not to mention, there are immigration controls for personnel applying for entry.

    #22 The land where the cemetery sits is owned by the Falkland Islands Government. The Falkland Islands Government gave permission for a memorial to be built at the site some years ago provided it was maintained by the Families Commission, which they now do under contract. Prior to that the site was not well looked after, and the Falkland Islands Government carried out the maintenance required.

    It really doesn't matter what laws have been passed in Argentina, because the fact of the matter is the land belongs to FIG.

    It is a tragic shame that the Argentine Government seeks to play politics with those whose lives they needlessly sacrificed in 1982. It is even more alarming to see the Families Commission letting themselves be drawn into politics on this matter.

    Shame on you all.

    There is a strange conundrum here.

    The article says that if Britain (sic) gets its way and the bodies of the dead are repatriated to Argentina, then they will have dies for nothing.

    This is an extraordinary statement.

    Firstly, Britain couldnt care less whether the bodies stay where they are, or not..Nor could the long as the remains are respectfully treated and not used as Argie propaganda.

    Secondly...THEY DID DIE IN VAIN. News flash, Argentina lost the war, the Falklands were not colonised by Argentina. Sad, but true.

    Thirdly, if by the bodies staying on the islands, Argentina see that somehow the deaths are “still productive” (i.e. the opposite to dying in vain) it is perhaps the sickest most twisted logic of the Malvinista cult yet...

    “But if the cemetery is owned by the Arg families why dont they just do what they want to with it??”

    It's very variable by country, but certainly in the UK (and thus probably also in the Falkland Islands) there is a certain amount (actually quite a lot) of legal paperwork required to perform an exhumation (seriously, and just to complicate matters in UK law once the top of a coffin is below ground level it counts as having been buried - British gravediggers are very careful to make sure the hole is big enough all the way down). Failing to do the paperwork would open themselves up to all manner of legal complications (a charge of grave robbery being the most obvious).

    “which would erase all traces of the Argentine determination of recovering the Islands and would make their sacrifice in vain. ”

    They did die in vain. Argentina's invasion and war broke resolution 2065 and totally reversed the British policy pre-1982 of negotiating on sovereignty.

    I am not sure why Argentina have great difficulty in understanding that their invasion has in the Islander's and the British public's eyes completely ruled out Argentine sovereignty forever.

    Let these boys rest in peace, that's all they have. They are certainly not the precursor to Argentine sovereignty.

    The site of the graves called the Argentine cemetery is and belongs to the Falkland Islands. Not one square inch of the Falkland Islands is Argentine. Those graves exist there for one reason and one reason alone, the good grace of the people of the Falkland Islands.

    Referring to the Falkland Islands as the M word and south atlantic islands is insulting and offensive and is designed to be insulting and offensive to the people of the Falkland Islands. If the Argentine government continue to behave like children and not speak directly with FIG on this issue, the matter is finished and the relatives can go to their own graves without knowing who lies in this cemetery.

    “We are with them, they gave their lives for our dream. Will never be forgotten.”

    ‘Our dream’ well at least that is an honest thought, but that is all it is a dream. A dream based on a national obsession and lies, a dream that fly’s in the face of reality, logic and the facts. It’s bad enough saying that young conscripts gave their lives for their country, but for a lie??

    The soldiers gave their lives at the behest of a callous, murderous military dictatorship ably assisted by a baying mob on the streets of BA. In their nationalistic fervour to support the war it appeared, at the time, that nobody in Argentina gave a fig about the welfare of the young men that they sent to the Falklands. When the battle was over, did Argentina provide the British military with any help in identifying the bodies of their fallen? No, you had forgotten them already.

    This was no noble cause just needless sacrifice, and now they demonstrate that they still don’t care about the soldiers, they just want to turn their final resting place into a new cause. Play the victim card again!

    Argentina will never achieve its ‘dream’ of gaining the Falklands because your claim is illegitimate and your behaviour towards the Islanders disqualifies Argentina on moral grounds.

    @24. No. Not diplomatic 'relations'. All 'relations'. For instance, any argie vessel found in the Falklands EEZ should be sunk. Any aircraft should be shot down. Any 'personnel' surviving should be bayoneted.

    Do you think it might be an idea to quit screwing your 'little sisters'?

    I have this wonderful concept whereby any argie invasion results in the entire Darwin cemetery is exploded from its current location into the ocean. Where sea predators have been encouraged. Maybe argies will get there in time to watch their antecedents being chomped up. What are argies except sharkmeat?

    We can help you with their 'glorious destiny'? They were shot dead by much better MEN with right on their side. You have no 'little sisters'. Faggots don't have sisters. I do wonder about individuals wanting to 'hug' green, decomposing, suppurating, slimy corpses. Time for a new minefield. Kill everything argie within range.
