Falkland Island War Memorial

The names of all the Argentinian soldiers killed when the British invaded the Falkland islands. Pauls told me that the Argentinian citizens are very upset because these were mostly 18 year old conscripted kids who had never really been trained for war, and were basically sent to die. I asked her if they were more mad at the British or their own military government of the time. She said it was about equal.
