    On this day 34 years ago. The noble Argentinian forces landed on Malvinas and liberate it from British occupation. To all Argentinians and anti-imperialists open minded people I congratulate this anniversity. Let us remember all the fallen heroes and sons of Argentina who gave up their lives for the defence of the fatherland

    Here is great song dedicated to the fallen Argentinian patriots



    Than later the Argentinias struggle against British imperialism minfested at the World Cup when Diego Maradona score his famous goal.

    Perhaps we could commemorate this anniversary by giving the people of the Falklands the chance to be liberated from imperialism again.

    We could give them a free democratic vote asking them if they want to be part of Argentina or remain part of the UK.

    Make sure no imperialists in mainland Britain are given a vote on his matter so it is entirely the choice of the free citizens.

    Then once and for all we can close down this question and it will be the voice of the people not the imperialists that decides their own future.

    The current population of the Falkands are newly arrived immigrants while the Argentinian settlers were expelled in the 1830s

    So now instead of pestering the UK for control of the territory, they celebrate a war they started, and then lost (very quickly).

    Genius.

    Obviously, you don't know much on this issue.
    Only 3 people wanted to leave.
    EVERYONE else wanted to stay.

    Argentina didn't exist in the 1830s.

    The Spanish colonists expelled the French fishermen from who they stole the name for the islands.


    The Argentineans then broke numerous international laws and conspired to bring down their own junta with their stupidity. They should be thanking us.

    Of course Argentina existed in the 1830s. It was called Rio de La Plata to whoose Malvinas were an integral part. Than came the British and expelled the Latinos living there, who were admittely soldiers.

    Make up false crap if you like.

    If anything Argentina should be thanking the UK for directly contributing to the fall of a military dictator who treated Argentinien service personnel horribly.

    Argentina was only recognised as an independent country in 1857, long after the Spanish - who had expelled the French settlers who named the islands - had left and a British settlement had been created.

    Argentina then didn't mention / care about the islands for a century.

    Once the junta started having issues at home by being woefully incompetent, they began banging on this drum to distract the populace.

    They ignored the UN, invaded, got their arses handed to them in a matter of months and have been *****ing about it ever since.

    It's pretty pathetic, really.

    Argentina exist as a country from the 1810! In meantime it was raceged by civil wars which ended in 1857, this does not minimise the claim that the Malvinas are Argentinian land occupied by the UK.

    They cared for the island all the time but never had the power to liberate it.

    Cared for it so much they left it alone, didn't inhabit it, didn't go...

    It's British. Get over it. If Argentina wants it that badly they can feel free to try again. Until then, shut up.

    Have you ever wondered why it's called "Malvinas"? Not curious where that name comes from? How the invading Spanish colonists (who stole the land of the South American continent from the indigenous population) also stole the islands from the people who were there first?

    Maybe you should focus on history, rather than silly politics that are never going to get anywhere. The islands are British. That's not going to change any time soon. All you're doing now is arguing with thin air.

    1. The British expeled the Argentinians living there. What is here not clear to you? Argentina later could not liberate it because it was economically weak and had internal problems.
    2. Why is relevant how it is called? The Proto-Argentinians never stole land from anybody, they were gentle people toward the natives and even they later integrated into Argentinians.
    3. I am focuing on history and it is argentinians islands.

    No they didn't, because there were none.

    Highly relevant, because it proves the "proto-Argentineans" (or 'Spanish', as we like to call them) are not the original inhabitants

    You are focusing on a history. Not the history. Argentinean propaganda is not accurate.

    And either way, the islands are British, have chosen to remain British and will remain British for a while yet. Possession is 9 tenths of the law and all that

    Many Argentinians have native descendatn. And you are very biased British nationalists who wont listen to argument and evidence. But a priori dissmiss it.

    Some do. But even if they do, none come from the islands.

    The rest are all immigrants who came over with colonial exploration, so to complain against others who did the exact same but first is incredibly stupid.

    There's no evidence whatsoever that puts Argentina in the right.

    Even if there were, their illegal invasion in 1982 that cost the lives of hundreds of their citizens completely and permanently negates that.

    They lost. Deal with it.
