    The Argentine Armed Forces of 1982 have so much to answer for, as with the indoctrination of the school children by the teachers of the very young and have done incalculable damage to Argentina, costing thousands and thousands of their own people's lives and those of other people.
    The usurping Argentine military of 1982 had no ethics when it came to mines in a foreign land, lucky for all mankind, that the dictatorship was defeated on the Falklands, stopping the murders in Argentina (torture, death flights and kidnapping the victims babies); and an even worse war with Chile involving several other countries which was averted on the Falklands by restoring the Queen's Peace there. If not the consequences would have been so much more tragic across the entire region.
    It is so wrong to try and rescue the reputation of these mass murderers by presenting them as fighting a “just war” for the Fatherland, when moved by total failure, fear of the courts and despair they attacked the peaceful and unarmed Falklands people. The attack was headed by the criminals of ESMA Chiachino on the Falklands and Astiz on South Georgia, and now the teachers talk about the mythic “heores”! Some, perhaps many, like the thousands murdered in Argentina were more like martyrs of the Argentine Armed Forces Dictators, those who survived torture and near death in Argentina don’t have pensions and don’t go about schools confusing the kids.

    The Falkland Islands should send a symbolic bill to Buenos Aires every time they have to hire people to dig up the mines the Argentines should be paying to dig up.

    Luckily the hand grenades they left under cups and the shit they left in freezers in the Falklanders' homes could be cleaned up much more quickly

    Whilst digging for mines they found a decomposed body with a wooden hand carved board by his side, and it said “ I WOS HERE IN 1792” signed Charlie Brown. Therefor folks THE FALKLANDS were British and now are a BOT. Let's hope that settles it.
