Can you remember the falklands war, can you remember the shame and humiliation that Argentina suffered as Britain kicked your butts, never forget that humiliation, or you will suffer it again

Don't cry for me, Argentina. The truth is you're a shit hole country, and you always will be.
Hear hear! The world does owe Britain. There is almost no country on Earth that has not been civilized owing to the warming sunshine of Western imperialism and colonialism. The Falklanders themselves want nothing to do with Argentina. The matter was settled and ended in bitter humiliation for the Argentines.

So the British have invaded 90 percent of the world's country, and we've invaded 80 percent."

Jeremy Moore y Julian Thompson dicen lo contrario, imbécil.
La mitad de las muertes argentinas son del hundimiento COBARDE del Gral Belgrano, que UK ataco de manera tan cobarde cuando el buque ya estaba fuera de la zona de guerra, bitch.

The deaths of 323 aboard were Argentina's fault for pitting a rusting old tub like the Belgrano against a modern navy.
The USA did not participate in the conflict in any way. Britain didn't need American help to clock a two-bit banana republic like Argentina.

It proved some interesting points about the Argentine and British forces:

Argentine Navy - Cowards
Argentine Army - Useless - always in retreat
Argentine Airforce - Brave

British Forces

Pulled off a remarkable victory

Argentina had a conscript army in the Falklands. That's never a good bet in an overseas war. The Argentinian forced brought to the Falklands were ill-equiped and soon lost contact with the mainland. Supplies became sporadic, leaving the troops short on shelter and food.

After the sinking of the Belgrano (outside the exclusion zone), Argentina stopped sending its navy out.

It was about as overwheming victory that you could get, and as Argentina don't even have a military these days, it would be even easier today, less than a week for them to surrender

Disputed Falklands Hold Referendum

According to the most fundamental principles of international law, accepted by all nations for the past 60 years, it is for the inhabitants of a territory alone to determine how they are governed.

'Dispute'- There is no dispute - the islands are British - if there was a dispute about sovereignty Argentina would have taken its case to the Courts of International Justice long ago.

The loses ratio is 3 to 1 for men, and about 2 to 1 for equipment, roughly.

I don't call that overwhelming.

Britain couldn't deal with the prisoners and send them back via Uruguay.

It was a costly victory for Britain, which never thought that the Argentinian air force could inflict such loses on our ships, or shot some of our aircraft.

Make no mistake, our top military at the time were surprised by the Argentinian Etendard aircraft and the Exocet missiles; both French!!
