An open conference by two Argentine Air Force pilots at an elite college in Buenos Aires had to be suspended following “ill-treatment” and overall questioning of Argentine armed forces conduct by the students and apparently one of the parents that were also invited to the event. Read full article

    “young people born after 2000 and whose brains have been intentionally and ideologically indoctrinated” - incredible how the Argenytine elite remains in denail about the history of their own country, from the decimation of the indigenous peoples of the south in the second half of the 19th century through to the dirty war and the cowardice of the Malvinas War.

    As soon as I saw this reported in Pagina 12 I was so pleased to read their comments, to see that they young people are beginning to see that the tortured and murdered in Argentina, the tortured and killed on the Falklands were all murdered and tortured by the same hand!
    I have nothing but praise for those kids who said “our school has 108 disappeared and we can't have this!”
    Well done! My hat goes off to all those students! You have broken the spell of indoctrination. Congratulations.

    The Student Center also repudiated the act by means of a communiqué and demanded answers from the authorities: “One thing is the defender of the claim for territorial sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands.”....

    The Argentine Pilots were Brave combat pilots.
    Unfortunately they were part of a regime that murdered vast numbers of its own citizens.
    You didn't save anybody from anything once your throwing unconscious people from an aircraft your Evil.
    The Argentine military was a bunch of facist thugs who had their delusions punctured when they got. Bored with raping children and decided to try and fight soldiers they didn't enjoy the experience when they came up against an enemy who wasn't tied up.

    Both former pilots avoided questions about tortured soldiers in the islands and illegal repression, and referred to the former dictatorship as “the government of the day.”

    Agree with Pytangua in that former pilot Sánchez' comments about youth born after 2000 reflect the dictatorship's propaganda that justified the kidnapping, torture and extermination of Argentines on the fact they had been “ideologically indoctrinated.”
