Most people just ignore it, but not the brainwashed horde.
In the Report of Col. David Jewett, Commander of the privateer Heroina, to the Supreme Director of Buenos Aires February 1st, 1821 is no mention of the Falkland Island nor of any Malvinas. The report is written in English as Jewett had a very limited knowledge of Spanish. If we are to believe he claimed the islands for the future Argentina, he must have a very bad memory.Dec 01st, 2022 - 05:58 pm - Link - Report abuse +4

Firma: Buenos Aires, 02 de Febrero de 1825; Vigor: 12 de Mayo de 1825, Argentine politician and historian Don Ignacio Benito Nuñez issued Noticias históricas, políticas, y estadísticas de las Provincias Unidas del Río de La Plata, 1825 with a complete list of all territories belonging to Las Provincias Unidas/Argentina. Nowhere in this document does one find mention of the Falkland Island nor of any Malvinas”.
