Our America is full of contradictions!
Historically, nation countries were typically separated by geographical features - borders often run along rivers, mountain ranges, etc.Jan 28th, 2023 - 01:27 pm - Link - Report abuse +5
It is absolutely natural that Chile and Argentina would be separate countries, given that they are mostly separated by what was, at the time of their origin, the virtually impenetrable barrier of the Andes. It would have been very difficult to administer a single country divided by such a geographical barrier.

We are always happy to guest pretty, civil ladies as Boaty McFace...
Me only regret is not being in Patagonia to be able to smell her new ship scent...
Think, here in Brazil everything is fine for now. We continued to fatten up like oxen on the green plateau. We will not send troops, weapons or ammunition to Nazi Ukraine. We'd rather die fighting Nazis, not alongside them.Jan 29th, 2023 - 04:17 pm - Link - Report abuse -2

HMS Protector is a military ship. The photo is only a week old.
Your neighbours say many thinks in the cause of regional solidarity, but then do very little.
Talk is cheap.

You are quite right when you say that...:
A) The HMS Protector (A173) is ia military ship...
B) The Punta Arenas Twitter photo you so kindly linked us to..., is only a week old...
If I were you...
I would observe closely the picture you linked us to... :-)
Can you see the A173 painted on that ship's side with 4.5 meters high letter and numbers...?
Nope..., you can't...
And you know why...?
Because she ain't no HMS Protector...!
That CIVILIAN beauty is the RRS Boaty McBoatface..., a.k.a. RRS Sir David Attenborough...:-)
-Don't they learn you at the Engrish Police Academy not to judge suspects ONLY by their colour...?
Good thing you retired early..., copper... ;-)
