I have written in Spanish so that you make an effort to understand it as we do with English. Spanish is spoken by 500.000.000 people around the world. btw anda a la concha de tu hermana.

A final comment- I, along with many others, would have favoured a gradual Argentinian takeover of the Islands many years ago, but Galtieri spoiled the progress made, by resorting to violence, and now no Falklander will countenence the idea.

Talking about "throwing Exocets at the Brits" on the Argentinian forums gives us an insight into your way of thinking

This discussion should be on another thread, open one if you like, amigos

The answer is:

How is that exactly?

If you were talking about the post WWII period then, yes the US did help, as it did for all of Europe with the Marshall plan.

The UK economic upturn since the 1980s though has nothing to do with US help and everything to do with internal reform in the UK.

maybe the argentinians should give argentina back to the native indians and go back to spain, italy, germany, england, portugal, wales, ireland, france, poland or wherever their descendents are from.

Superb idea. The problem will be to find enough people who say “I am indian” instead of “I am argentine”.

But hey, this could be a great opportunity for stealing more land. You could disguise some British Petroleum executives, with feathers and spears. You would put them in Patagonia, secretly. Later, they could say “We, the tehuelches, claim .....”

It is true, your genocide may have taken care of that problem which obviously makes your theft ok.

oh right, you killed them all didn't you... maybe you missed the point i was trying to raise though, that argentina was founded by colonial imperialists just like british rule on the falklands islands. one difference though, no-one lived in the falklands when we went there.

perhaps now you'll see how ridiculous it is to tell falklanders to go "back home" to england when they have established lives there over generations. it's as ridiculous as telling all the argies to pack their bags and move to europe.

Of course you would also have a problem finding any Falkland Islanders who would say "I am Argentine" instead of "I am British"
