30 Yrs Ago... At 2100 hours on 14 June 1982, the commander of the Argentine garrison in Stanley, General Mario Menéndez, surrendered to the Major General Jeremy Moore. The surrender was in conflict with the Argentine Army code stating that a surrender was illegal unless more than 50% of the men were casualties and 75% of the ammunition was spent.

The terms of the surrender document were slightly changed after negotiation by General Menéndez. The phrase unconditional surrender was changed for the term surrender. The Argentines were granted:
HMS Andromeda and SS Canberra outside Port Stanley on 16 June 1982

The Argentines units will retain their flags.
The units will remain under control of their respective officers
The surrender ceremony will be private (not public)
The Argentine officers will retain their sidearms; this was because many of them feared being lynched by their own conscripts
The final point about the returning of the 11,313 prisoners of war in their own ships was not accepted and 4,167 of them were repatriated to Argentina on the ocean liner Canberra alone. The Junta had falsely claimed that the liner had been crippled during the Battle of San Carlos.

thing with this is its FACT the argentine's sold that island to the british 250 years ago as they had no use for it and was used as a trading post, hench they gave up the right to the falklands along time ago, they cant just ask for it back after all the killing and attacking they have done, its ours there not having it back and wont ever get it back.

they only want it back because it is rich with oil and gas and they want the money thats that simple.

the french kill those brits in that war just the same as the the argie's, selling the weapons illiggaly just for money as at the time it was a banned rocket the sunk ships and so forth.

fair enouth you know aswell as i do, the military industry dont give a fuck who they sell too that includes us. Backed by our government. The FRench are meant to be our allies. The fact is our forces are being used to further the profits of the multi national coorperations. Who now dictate to governments specialy Uk/US where we send our forces in the name of our best interests. Fuck me we been selling arms illigaly since day 1, we invented the arms trade. how can we be so defensive towards the Falklands, yet we can kick 2000 locals off Diego Garcia that have been there for generations. who in this country actually gave a shit about those poor lives? all bullshit of the highest degree. Falklands is just another part of our empire to hang on too. I have not seen evidence of the the Argies selling it to us, i see that at least 4 countries have fought over the islands. Are they worth killing over? this is 2012 why the fuck are we still acting as though we are living in medievil times. Ill tell you why money and power....god save the queen and her European family they aint English.
Our forces should wake up realise that. over and out.

Just wanted everyone to remember the people, normal people trying to earn a living in their chosen profession, or going about their business. Lets not forget that 649 Argentines also gave their lives.
