Response to Nye Bevan (Reply #60)

Mon Apr 8, 2013, 10:45 AM

67. The natives got screwed in the whole American continent.

The Europeans took their lands from Canada in the North to Argentina and Chile in the South.

That still does not excuse colonial powers from taking land from other independent nations. At the time, Argentina was already a sovereign nation and they had a garrison on the islands. The British surrounded them and gave them 24 hrs. to vacate the islands.

I attended a high school run by Argentine/Irish nuns in Buenos Aires. Double whammy, they liked the Brits as much as they liked the plague. So I have strong feelings on the subject.
