SLR - though I did get to have a go with one on my 10th birthday, and a GPMG and a 66MM LAW (anti tank rocket) and some thunderflashes. Oh those were the days, before defence cuts were invented
Galtieri and the Junta were given the boot very shortly afterwards because they lost. Public confidence in a military dictatorship is a very fickle thing...!
Point well made Stephan, sorry for lack of empathy.
I do seem to recall that getting rid of the Junta seemed like a good thing at that time though I was young and not tuned in.
With regard to British and invading soverign countries well I am not so sure I would agree with that, however I do have many English, Welsh and Scottish friends, I have very few British ones......
Our history with that is less than successful.... But that is all in the past I hope.
