Friday, March 22, 2013

Just got to read today, on some news sites, about something new revealed details about Falksland War, which started on 2nd April, 1982, fought between Argentina and United Kindgom. Some of the secret documents have revealed that then British PM, Margaret Thatcher was opposed by her MPs for a war, the documents even included the reports if the Thatcher's advisers such as John Hoskyns, Alan Walters and David Wolfson had discussed the plans of selling this island.

The war ended by 14th June, 1982, United Kindom took control of the island, and over 11 thousands of argentine were taken prisoners.

The Falksland island known as "Las Malvinas" in Argentina, is home of over 3,000 people, but still remains a disputed island, last time, on 3rd January 2013, president of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner had once again slammed UK to return the Falkland Islands, pointing that UK had took the island away from Argentina on this same day, 180 years ago, she also regarded Britain of mass colonialism, a accusation which was denied by the member of Legislative Assembly of the Island, Barry Elsby, saying that there relation with UK is because of there own choice.
