    Classic Narcokleptocratic National Socialist baby snatchers. A great way for these depraved kurepi to get more slaves, like they did in the so called “Conquest of the Desert.” I sincerely hope these racist pieces of bipedal excrement all suffer the very worst life has to offer...

    What to believe?

    “province, which originally belonged to neighbouring Paraguay, and was part of the bounty Argentina collected following the Triple Alliance war in 1870”.

    “Conquest of the Desert”.

    “Our self-respect as a virile people obliges us to put down as soon as possible, by reason or by force, this handful of savages who destroy our wealth and prevent us from definitely occupying, in the name of law, progress and our own security, the richest and most fertile lands of the Republic”.

    — Julio Argentino Roca.

    It seems, Argentina has quite a history of stealing other people’s land and implanting their own population on it, in that part of the world.

    Fortunately the British have more than just sticks and stones with which to defend their territories in the S. Atlantic/Antarctic.

    Pujol-H, I understand your hatred to Argentina but it is good to be informed before posting inaccuracies.

    Although Argentine history is full of small “malones”, the most important ones were:

    On December 3, 1820, José Carrera with 2,000 indigenous people from the Yanquetruz and Ancafilú chiefs and 500 deserters destroyed the Fort of Salto and its population.

    On April 4, 1821, 1,500 indigenous people under the command of José Molina attacked the City of Dolores, destroying it completely. They took 150,000 head of cattle.

    In October 1823, a coalition of 5,000 ranqueles, pampas, and tehuelches attacked southern Santa Fe, Luján, Tandil, and Chascomús.

    In the spring of 1836, Cacique Railef, coming from Araucanía, carried out a rampage with 2,000 warriors over the Province of Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Santa Fe obtaining 100,000 head of cattle.

    On February 13, 1855, Calfucurá, Catriel and Cachul razed the towns of Azul and Olavarría is currently located. This “malon”, numbered of 2,000 warriors, killed 300 people and taking 150 families captives and 60,000 heads of cattle.

    In 1857, Chief Coliqueo attacked Pergamino and seized 40,000 cattle.

    On May 19, 1859, the Protective Fortress of the City of Bahía Blanca was attacked and destroyed by Calfucurá with 3,000 warriors.

    On March 5, 1872, Calfucurá, with 6,000 warriors, attacked the towns of General Alvear, Veinticinco de Mayo and Nueve de Julio, killing 300 people and seizing 200,000 head of cattle.

    The “Malón Grande”, which began in December 1875, was a conjunction of warriors from Namuncurá, Ranqueles, Pincén and Catriel. A total of 3,500 spears ravaged the cities of Azul, Tandil, Olavarría, Benito Juárez, Tapalquén, Tres Arroyos and Alvear. Only in Azul they left 400 dead. They took 500 captives and a total of 300,000 cattle.

    All this trace of extermination, destruction and suffering ended with the “Campaña del Desierto” promoted by J. A. Roca who will live in the memory of the Argentine people forever.
