    This is incredibly petty in my opinion. Trying to portray the British as terrorists because the Kirchner has thrown her toys out the pram doesn't look clever.

    - We are in the midst of a new revival of the Falklands dispute.
    - The Argentinians see the British as colonists, whilst we see the islands as having always been ours.
    - An Argentinian company create a map for a game so that players can invade the Falklands, and remove unnamed 'terrorists'.
    - They show no British flags, supposedly 'in respect for the dead', most of whom were Argentinian conscripts.

    How could this possibly be construed as innocent, unless the company directors have been living under a hedge for thirty years?
    It's just a pity these on line gamers haven't got the balls to try it for real....I guess they'd cry a lot and loose rather dramatically.

    But why specifically would people assume a company would be siding with the Argentinians? That's the part I don't understand. It would just be counter-terroists versus terrorists, same as always. ---

    (That is, in the absence of terrorists skinned to look like British soldiers, which snagprophet just informed me of, though I haven't seen pictures of these.)
    Oh, ok, I get your point now. I didn't realise they were both spawned on the island - I though the idea was to invade the islands. My mistake
