25 years ago
« on: April 02, 2007, 02:13:47 AM »
Tomorrow, April 2nd, there will be 25 years between us and the arrival of Argentine troops to the Malvinas Islands, considered as the begining of the Malvinas war.

I don't expect comments, neither I'll make any, it is just to remember and to honor the ones who died from both sides. I hope you don't see this as a provacative message, but understand my real intention, this post hasn't got any other intention than remember from those who fought and died there.

a tear for them all...

Argentine people still remember it as if it was one or two years ago. And I am proud of that. I hope we never forget, for not doing the same mistakes...

The Brits would remember it becuase Argentina sunk a few British ships and the world remembers it because Britain sunk the General Belgrano with a nuke powered sub. .wich was the first nuke sub to sink another ship?

I think it was.

BTW, that was a crime of war, as it is called, because our ship was out of the exclusion zone, and they or we couldn't sunk or shoot down anything outside the borders of the exclusion zone. But I guess war is like that :-\

I thought it was becuase argentina was sending the Belgrano to support their forces, and they couldve done some real damage. like 'an eye for an eye'

with the Belgrano, more than 300 lifes drowned in the freezing waters of the very south atlantic. Half of the Argentine deaths.

I don't know, but it was not my point to martirize the Argentines only; as we were talking about the Belgrano, I just told you one more piece of info.
Anyway, I am sure there weren't as many people there as there was on the Belgrano.
I'll investigate

I was a young teen and I followed that war.  The point of war is that ... there is no point.  I understand how you feel, Globe and I respect that your country sees it as your land.  The Brits see it a different way.  Unfortunately, there's no compromise, nor will there be any in the forseeable future. 

The only thing we can do is honor those who died in battle.
