    How moving.... Smuggled soil. Illegally imported soil... And Esteban Pino talks about when he was taken prisoner and finally fed the rations his officers had kept from him, very little is made of that comment. The fact that him and his colleagues had been left, cold, ill-nourished and ill-armed facing some very angry men is glossed over. As is his ignominious return to Argentina...

    What a load of rubbish they continually spout. If they could just tell the world how it really is their lives would not be so indoctrinated by the myths. I would be embarrassed to say I stole peat soil from another country to lay on your country. Chances are it is not even peat soil from the islands unless it was collected from their boots as the pounded in retreat from the hills.

    Did they put down any horse s**t too. that would be more appropriate. Do you suppose anybody really believes that these “heroes” have been hoarding a load of Falklands soil for three years just for this auspicious occasion ?

    He was involved in 'combat on Mt William' !!!

    There was no combat on Mt William, the Argentines ran away when they heard the Gurkhas were coming for them

    Quote from the Gurkhas Museum website

    “When the attack commenced on 14th June, it was in broad daylight and, to the disappointment of 1/7th Gurkhas, the Argentines almost immediately began to head for the Scots Guards nearby and surrender in large numbers. The Gurkhas fearsome reputation had caused panic in the enemy when they realised who were advancing towards them”

    More cringe-worthy Argentine behaviour. An almost total national lack of moral fibre. No one in the Falkland Islands wants a bar of them. The swaggering arrogant fascist bullying toward a small neighbour. The pollution of a landscape they claim to “love” with landmines. The seemingly unlimited ability to fill domestic bathtubs with feces, the total lack of any proof of any historical basis for their obsessive “claims” over the Falklands. The Argentines are little more than thieving bastards. The people of the Falklands, who have lived there, now for 5-6-7+ generations, born there, shouldn't have to put up with such imbecilic and pathetic posturing. Argentina was given a thrashing, a flogging and a hiding 40 years ago. Why would they ever wish to revisit such embarrassment again? Free advice to Argentina: GET OVER IT.

    Doesn't matter how much they sing and dance about 1982 - It was an illegal and shameful act.

    Funny Taenk how a handful of deluded Argentinws can brag about spreading Falklands Peat. Willing to bet it's not even from our country. Probably another made up story to get press attention. That is usually the case.
    Sad lot really that they are.

    Tink, you promised us, last year, something big happening this year that would rattle our bones and make a massive difference to everything. As it hasn't happened yet and we are well past the first half of 2022, is this the Big Event? Just asking.

    Taenk. Using a get out of a sticky situation clause are you. Chances are someone will find your statement and then it will be interesting to see how you respond.
    Then having likely been a part of indoctrinated brain washing you will probably not remember having said anything past yesterday.

    ‘peaty soil from the Falkland Islands’, really???

    Must be about as easy to find in Argentina as rocking horse shit.

    A feat (not to be confused with the Malvinas DE-feat (which also happened on ‘miracle Malvinas peaty soil’) medal) worthy of Goebbels himself.

    Probably dug up some of Ersatz Stink’s back garden and had a Priest (blessing supplied direct from the Vatican) Transubstantiation it into ‘miracle Malvinas peaty soil’.

    However, there may also be a business opportunity here, after all, every self-respecting Malvinazi would want a little pot of ‘miracle Malvinas peaty soil’, to put on the shelf next to the pictures of CFK and Peron and the map of Bi-continental Argentina.
