    Decent, respectful and appropriate Ceremony.

    Thanks to all who participated, and they many, many, across the World, who took the time from their day to remember the sacrifice made by a few in the name of the many, for the principles of democracy, freedom and liberty.

    I know I did.

    Not let us forget that the Invasion of The Falkland Islands was instigated by a Fascist Junta.
    Not let us forget the brave souls of those who died, of those who were injured, and of the surviving troops who fought valiantly against the fascist-led invaders, and who won the war, and ultimately ushered the Argentines into something approximating Democracy.

    Now, not let us forget that Freedom and Self-Determination has a Blood-Price.

    Unfortunately some are not willing to their International Debt requirements...

    That's what the Saxons murderers serve. For to tan with our face! America must create shame in the face and expel the entire diplomatic corps of the 5 eyes!

    When we are ready we'll take it back, idiots!

    No Labourites then? Not surprising, they're mostly cowards who would gladly give away things that much better men have achieved. Corbyn is an example. A traitor if ever there was one. Giving anything to do with the Falklands, South Georgia or the South Sandwich Islands to argieland is pure treachery. He doesn't even have a brain capable of recognising British sacrifices made. Why isn't there a British law enabling a traitor to be executed before he has a chance to do any damage? Never mind, in the event of any future South Atlantic conflict, Corbyn has already been identified by argies as “one of theirs”. He'll be executed almost before he knows it.
    @2. “For to tan with our face”. Gibberish. Does that mean you already have shyte all over your face? You'll never take anything you never had. We can promise you that YOU'll be dead first. Look at a current situation. 12 British combat aircraft make a difference in Syria/Iraq. Now imagine our two new aircraft carriers. 80 aircraft. Nine attack submarines capable of launching 270 first strike cruise missiles. Four ballistic missile submarines. Capable of launching from 7,000 miles away. Each missile with multiple warheads.

    You couldn't “take” anything. But perhaps we'll contact the indigenous people and tell them when to take cover while we exterminate the invaders. Could you polluting slobs get a picture?

    “When we are ready we'll take it back, idiots!”

    Meanwhile you continue to destroy your country's greatest asset, the Amazon rainforest.

    You couldn't event take back a breath you've expelled.

    That's what the Saxons murderers ,

    you cannot call Saxons murderers,
    Saxons had no part in the Falkland's war,
    nor did the Americans,
    nor did the Brazilians for that matter,

    so one is being rather unfair here.

    Then again argies or Anglo Spanish did....
