    One does sit here and wonder: Why are these people always so toxic?

    Then I realise if you aren’t on good terms with some Argentinians then you are usually berated by them… and so that just creates a toxic atmosphere.

    September 1st 1979 Germany celebrated 40 years of the “Poland feat”, celebrating the “Heroes of the Polish Campaign” and “reenacted” the crossing inte Poland in 1939. December 7th 1981 Japan celebrated the “Heroes of Pearl Harbor”. Well, of course NOT. Only in Argentina they celebrate a war they started and lost. What will happen in 2062? Will Russia celebrate the invasion in Ukraine? Hopefully not. I think even they will be more civilized 40 years from now. But Argentina will continue in perpetualty.

    Argentina says its sovereignty claims is now ‘peaceful’, yet here they are re-enacting their armed invasion.

    Argys speak with forked tongue methinks, actions speak louder than words.

    Better idea for them to re-enact the surrender and list the dead, remind them how it ended, instead of glorifying how they started the war, which will only encourage them to try it again, one day.

    Judge Jose
    A Polish colleague once quoted to me ‘never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience’.

    Few people have more experience of being deliberately stupid than the Kurepi Planter squatting in Argy occupied Patagonia.

    Free Patagonia, arm the Mapuche, one Planter one bullet.

    ”.... When a British biologist dared to connect the starvation of 5 million penguins to commercial fishing that was making the Falklands elite rich, a deadly game of cat and mouse was unleashed. Bungled attempts to deport, imprison and kill Bingham..., LANDED THE FALKLAND ISLANDS GOVERNMENT IN THE (BRITISH) SUPREME COURT, WHICH RULED THAT THE GOVERNOR..., ATTORNEY GENERAL..., CHIEF EXECUTIVE AND EXECUTIVE COUNCIL HAD COMMITED ACTS OF HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE that were morally and constitutionally indefensible“.
    When the Falklands Government stated in public that they were not going to be stopped by the Supreme Court ruling, Bingham was forced to seek safety in Argentina. It is good to know that British troops did not die in vain.”

    Take a look at the picture. Why are Argentine flags often so absurdly big compared with the flagpole? It looks quite grotesque. North Korea displays a super big flag at the border, but the flagpole is adapted to that size. In Argentina the flags are often half the hight of the flagpole.

    A bit sensitive... aren’t you… old man?

    I don’t really care what they do to ‘celebrate.’ Whilst many, including me, find it totally weird, as long as they do it in Argentina and stay the hell away from my home, I couldn’t give a damn about it.

    It looked like more Argies than ever wanted to visit this year. But guess what. None of them are going to.

    To get back to the topic of the story. Crazy to be celebrating an invasion that set Argentina on the path of failure, and wrecked so many lives in the process. If Argentina would be prepared to say sorry after these 40 years it would mean a lot more.

    “I conclude with these remarks. The Applicant may well feel, rightly, that the Executive Council does not emerge from this case with any great credit. He may, however, wish to reflect upon the fact that he is to an extent the author of his own misfortunes. Whilst the fact that he has been penalised for his views is constitutionally and, if I may say so, morally indefensible, the Applicant’s own attempts to bolster the provenance of those views by representing his academic background as something which it is not does him no credit.”

    Mike Bingham - Oh yes we remember him well, even his book is listed as a novel about his life, some events which are fictitous, like his qualifications. Gun hidden under his bed, silent calls at night from teh Governor, Chief Executive, Legislative Assembly Members, The Queen, Prime Minitister, Jesus, God and even the man in the moon.... Is that what you are clinging to?

    An independent report from varying intillectuals with no links to the Falkland Islands refuted his findings as being based on limited data, hearsay and lacked actual facts. But I am no expert!!!

    As for celebrating - today I am celebrating making myself a cup of tea. It was cold and weak, but deserves some form of cellebration.

    Gauchito Drink likes portray himself as an individual who defends “Human Rights” Of course his view of human rights only applies to those he thinks are human, which excludes Jews, Indigenous peoples, those who have darker skin than him, and naturally, people who speak English (as well as other languages.) Indeed, given his performance, one might well conclude he is a National Socialist of the highest water.
