    Don't try to make Waters' involvement any more than it is and don't try to twist the facts to do so!

    Roger Waters says Falkland Islands are Argentinian in reported comments.
    Chilean TV quotes Pink Floyd founder, a long time critic of the Falklands war, as saying 'Las Malvinas belong to Argentina' (Guardian 29 Feb 2012).

    Territorial indoctrination by Argentina almost led to war with Chile in 1978, and led to the Falklands War in 1982.

    Cheers Roger.

    In an interview transmitted by the Chilean channel TVN last Thursday, Waters was asked: “Falklands, Malvinas, what is your take? Is it British or is it Argentine?” Waters gave his opinion: “I think it should be Argentine.”

    “Should be” ain't the same as “it is”.
