    Surely this should have been made public on on April 1 ?
    Sadly, no ! How reassuring for the Argentine people that despite faltering gas supplies, their government has got a firm grip on the major challenges ahead.
    By the way - notice that Moscow announced that flights to its“ friendliest countries” will resume - top of the list - Argentina!!

    Enough to make you cry - for Argentina.

    Paving stones in the sidewalks of Austin, Texas say “Remember the Alamo”, hence building a wall on the Mexican border has appeal. Road signs in Northern Greece pointing toward Istanbul all say Constantinople, so annexation of Cypress makes sense. On the other hand, school children in Germany no longer see maps of upper and lower Silesia, marked 'occupied Polish territory'. You can remember, yet learn and get over it or harbor resentment, stew revenge in bitterness to prepare for the next bloodletting.

    It was the attempt to annex ‘Cyprus’ that lead to the Turkish invasion and partition of the Island.

    I agree with your last sentiment, with the Argys celebrating the start of the war and ‘re-enacting’ the invasion of the islands, it is only a question of time before another generation tries it again, after all it was righteous.

    And we have to kill them as well.

    Argentina should claim Barcelona.

    Spanish people lived there in 1780...check
    A German merchant set a business up there in 1828....probably
    An Argentine went there once, but isn't there anymore....Lionel Messi...check

    Only issue is Messi was there for longer and wasn't murdered by his team mates.

    But its a stronger claim than this Malvinas nonsense

    This must be unique in a country claiming to be a democracy. Not even Russia has such laws. But in Pyongyang there are pictures of the Kim father & son in all underground carriages.

    I think this is a wonderful use of tax-payers' money. Good for them!

    How about “the Moon is Moroccan” in Rabat
    “Jupiter is Australian” in Sydney
    “Uranus is Chile” in Santiago

    Makes just as much sense

    More to be pitied than censored, the poor dear Argentino government.
