The British charity “Help for Heroes” has done a poll to mark the 40th anniversary of the Falkland Islands conflict and the report on results is astonishing to the point that the South Atlantic war risks becoming a “forgotten war” since many of the people polled have no idea about events.

    Unlike Argentina, they’re also long on wins.

    Geeeeeeeee....

    The photograph above just reminded me of a recent comment by an Anglo Brainwashed Turnip whose Inferiority Complex was triggered by the huge size of the ”Argies ;-)...:
    - “Take a look at the picture. Why are Argentine flags often so absurdly big compared with the flagpole? It looks quite grotesque.”..., he said....

    Wonder how he feels 'bout that 4 yards of 3/4” galvanized water pipe flagpole in this article's picture...?

    Chuckle..., chuckle..., rechuckle...


    Inferiority complex

    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.

    In accord with personnel in the picture, like a winner. Rather than your antithesis as a loser.

    Yes, I wrote that. Even the flagpole is absurd. It is too weak for that oversized flag. A flag that size requires a much higher pole and also a more stable one. But it is perhaps symbolizing Argentina's “much talk, little workshop” when it comes to the “Malvinas cause”.

    I dont know if forgotten war its the appropiate expression. I think they must take a list to remember of all wars the've been involved in the past 50 years. And i thought that this century would be a very peacefull one.

    No wars declared since 1945, Libby. How peaceful is that?

    The main reason people between 18 and 25 don't know much about the Falklands War is because it is not part of the British schools curriculum. Unlike Argentina, it is seen as a footnote in Britain. Also, propaganda and newthink is not taught in the UK.

    The main reason Brits between 6 and 80 don't know much about British Imperialism is because it is not part of the British schools curriculum. Unlike most of the World, it is seen as less than a footnote in Britain. Also, ignorance and no-think is taught in the UK.

    You know that’s very much incorrect, haven’t you heard of the Edward Colston statue being toppled in the UK by a large amount of people? Everyone knows of Britain’s imperial past and we don’t sugarcoat it anymore, so stop assuming everyone in the UK is either brainwashed or retarded.

    We all know the Brainwashed and retarded ones are Argies anyway.

    “Schools minister rejects lessons about colonialism and slave trade”

    It seems rather pointless as neither exist anymore. Otherwise, they would be just like Argentina, going nowhere fast.

    As they were one of the first nations to outlaw slavery, and it had never been allowed in the UK.
    While there are no more colonies to decolonize. Since they have brought independence to more territories than any other nation.

    Ignorance and no-think continue to be taught in an indoctrinating state constitution, I couldn’t agree more.

    “1. The Argentine Nation ratifies its legitimate and everlasting sovereignty over the Malvinas, South Georgia and Sandwich Islands and the corresponding maritime and insular areas, because they are an integral part of the National territory.
    The regaining of said territories and the full exercise of sovereignty, while respecting the lifestyle of their inhabitants, and in conformity with principles of international law, constitute a permanent and unwaivable objective of the Argentine people.”

    Wænk, did you know that there are over 40 000 000 slaves in the world today? Most of them are in Africa, a sizeable amount in Asia and more than a few in South America? You bang on about imperialism and slavery and yet you seem blind to what is happening around you today.

    Kelper above..., going by the name of an Engrish Yaghan killer, enslaver & kidnapper says that “I seem blind to what is happening around me today.”

    Hardly..., I say...
    - From me current humble abode on the Ligurean Riviera..., I can observe quite a hectic naval activity caused mainly by the Anglosphere's (currently lead by a war raunchy senile and a war horny clown) war randiness...

    - About them “Slaves in the World”...
    - If I were to believe the local telly..., there ain't any shortage of them here in Europe...
    - A fresh supply of blonde, blue eyed young women and kids seem to be readily available thanks to the above mentioned Anglospheres war raunchiness...

    I don’t even know why this guy thinks naval exercises to keep crews trained are “hectic” or some sort of sabre-rattling exercise when we are literally keeping our navies trained. Oh wait, training and naval exercises are something Argentina never does. That’s why they complain that a regular naval exercise is war-posturing.

    They’re just jealous that we have a money to keep our ships sailing instead of sinking in port.
