That is another problem in Latin America though, have you seen the images of Argentines burning the Uk flag? There is a group doing it, it is not the
majority but there is a group.
That is teh story everywhere in Latino-America. In Venezuela, there is a large population that descents from Spanish, I believe the majority. The
others are descendent of Italian, Portuguese, German, Lebanese, Syrian, etc.
The goverment and all goverments of Latino America are wanting to create a nationalist/patriotic propaganda by hating the descendants of the countries
by labelling the immigrants descendants "imperialists", "bourgeois" "squalids" (which are mistakenly refered to the middle class, upper class) and to
gain votes and power from the lower classes as they wrongly think they are 100% pure Venezuelan, which is very very unlikely.
In Bolivia is happening, in Ecuador... I believe in Argentina may be happening but Im not entiurely sure... I think the Malvinas issue is one way of
getting away with such propaganda... to retain "Argentine pride"
the other reason is the oil...
and how this is obtained in Latino America? You barely learn about England in the Falklands and all in purpose so when you learnt it (happen to me)
you get all shocked abou the "invasion" of England into "our" territory. What you dont learn is that the huge majority of the "Malvinas" is English!
I think it is a bit ridiculous they got those lands as they are quite close to Argentina but now all the people there are English and there is a very
small minority which is Argentine and Chilean.
I think Argentina should let it go but as I mentioned, it is all propaganda
