    Liberation??! Really !!?... The Falklanders are finally breaking away from Britain???
    Why this is great news!!! I'm so happy for them! Now they'll finally be free and comfortable enough to negotiate with Argentina and have Argentina recogniz........
    What do you mean it is not Britain who they were liberated from?
    What do you mean it was Argentina?
    Argentina never governed them. ... hmmm (*thinks and wonders)
    Argentina governed the islands before the islanders were brought to the islands.
    ...I know that.
    Ohhhh ... I get it. You mean when Argentina briefly recovered the islands from Britain those two months during 1982! I see.
    hmmm But I still don't get it. Argentina did not “CAPTURE” the islands. It did not invade them in order to subjugate a people under them!
    The Junta just stupidly tried to re-incorporate them into the sovereignty of the whole country. They hadn't even begun to figure out how to proceed with the integration, or what was going to happen after they got kicked out of power, which they knew was going to happen sooner or later. But anyways...
    I think that what you are actually celebrating, is Britain grabbing the islands back from Argentina, and continuing to rule over you and the islands all the way from London in the northern hemisphere. ... Kinda like... you're celebrating for them vicariously and greateful that you are still under them.
    Yet it's called Liberation Day? Like when country's in the America's broke from European ruling empires?...
    What an odd celebration. Strange.

    Another meaningless wall of verbiage by Trimonstruosidades, known compadre of Gauchito Drink, in an endless attempt to bring back the “Good Old Days” when Peron imported German fellow National Socialists to help staff his torture chambers in the basement of Buenos Aires' Ramos Mejía General Hospital. Reminds me of the Peronist slogan “Haga patria, mate a un estudiante!”

    The only thing odd is that Argentina celebrated a failed invasion were hundreds os soldiers were killed,
