"On today's program. We've got another little treat for you. We're gonna get a round of some of the win wonderful stories that you're frankly unlikely to read in your favourite regular broadsheet Here to help us on. That course is louis. Hana amirah louis. Good afternoon to you You'll the face of outpost news. I am face and the voice now indeed So i'm going to run people through a few of the strangest stories that are taking place around the world. Maybe some more significant in smaller communities than they are to Major political forces are at work at the moment but Shall i move into the first one now. I think we should start with. Can i can i. Can i say this is it Sarang are whips. junior. We'll say sarong which junior exactly. Yeah so he has ascended to the presidency of palau. Now is telling you it's an island nation. It's about twenty thousand people and they live in the west pacific But he ascended to the presidency on the twenty first of january. Now we know that. Joe biden's inauguration took place on the twentieth but this nations on the twenty first and is significant in its own way So what's interesting about. Palau is. actually they've been copying the us political system for a very long time now the Since they achieved independence. I think it was forty years ago. They've been copying the us and how they operate in terms of how they structure congress the senate the house the presidency and they've even got a little model in miniature the us capitol building in their capital. Which is actually the smallest capital city in the world. It's all happening on a much smaller scale. However the crowd was a lot larger than in the us. Because what we've got is a crowd of one thousand five hundred people. Palau has locked self away and it hasn't ever had a single case of corona virus. Turn up in the nation so they've actually been doing pretty well this New president is following a president served for four terms. So he's got a tough fat follow but He seems to be popular at the moment. the newspaper. I've been reading tab. Allow the nation's first newspaper under the only one one of two newspapers in the country actually is reporting strong on general policy although doesn't have concrete plans for the next four years which is understandable but then i wonder what general policy is very good general policy but no plans. I love the fact that they've outperformed that slightly more celebrated Democratic cousins the us in a number of a number of key fields fifteen hundred ten days. And as i'm as far as i'm aware no deadly riots and plow preceding no deadly rise. I'll be very surprised that there. Well ahead there. Well ahead on that for Let's keep travelling Can we can. We talk about a fish based story next. And that's fish bass fish paste. Louis enlighten us. We're heading to faroe islands. The faroe islands. Indeed so this is a story from eating which means basically means dawn in a more poetic way it means when darkness lifts in the morning according to we already to bit of that last idea we we could do with that but darkness isn't lifting unfortunately So salmon prices have fallen by almost seventy seven percent this week since last year which is According to the nasdaq salmon index. Now big news for the faroe islands which has an economy which relies to a pretty crazy extent on salmon so It has the second has some of the largest salmon fishing companies in the world. even though it's called population of say i think fifty thousand but more than fifty percent of its overall. Gdp exports are salmon so it is very heavily dependent and if we think about its growth in recent years as well. It's hard about seven percent year on year growth which is crazy. That's like china. Level knows a small nation but nonetheless. It's been one of the most successful Nations in the world for rapid growth over the past ten years. However as i say. This is heavily heavily. Reliant on salmon in the is taking a bit of a spin the moment so We wanna see how that plays out. I think that's a major concern for some officials in the faroese island not in the yemen however the atlantic island is kind of a historic feeding ground for the fish. They say that they Fish them sustainably in their particular good mark of quality but We'll see whether or not the industry picks up again. They expect it to over the next ten years or so but in the short term at least thus taking a bit hit fascinating who was a nasdaq salmon index as extraordinary and we don't cover stories like this just the Let's go to vincent the grenadines. Louis rapidly next. I wanna. I wanna fit two more quick stories in but system vincent next okay. So there's a volcano on saint vincent which has been belching fire according some residents however a scientist has been swift to fly in and correct them. Not worry is not belching fire is just glowing incandescently because of the molten magma which is bubbling below the surface now they haven't told residents to evacuate which is slightly baffling and they haven't changed the risk level of the volcano however there is a lot of burnt vegetation around it summits which does raising questions but Nonetheless believed the authorities. And everything's fine. i'm going to. I'm not a qualified geologist. Or it would be. That would make such pronouncements. But that would i if they smoldering vegetation i would be loaned I'm alarmed i. I wouldn't want be living near. They've been told. Don't don't climb the volcano a as you wouldn't usually but don't climb the volcano last time erupted for seventy nine They expect it to erupt again. Necessarily it could do. We'll see certainly that doesn't feel with confidence that now Let's rattle a little southbound and finished with one of my favorites august news sites penguin news. It's not an on a logical. Publication is louie. Certainly not no is a the news from the the falklands which people in the u cable no As the historic place of the falcons war of course conflict between argentina and the uk and this is essentially a rock which has a population of two thousand eight hundred people. So there's a lot of british experts or falkland islanders who live on this little rock and In this instance one of them was visiting her family. Notices judy white she seventy one and she was visiting family when she went for a walk down the island now. She got herself a little bit lost started off with a Johnny rook which is a type of falcons that lives on the condones stealing her hat so her hype not stolen by this fall. Can she was a bit worried about that. Then she saw to sea lions fighting each other. So it's got away from them. She went up a hill. She went up the hill. She got high in the tussock grass and then the bog underneath collapsed so she the bugs collapsed. She's on the ground. And she's stuck around some noisy albatross who who are making a bit. Who making a bit of consternation around her. Now if i can just read a very brief passage from Judy who who's now as Bag grills are enabled to move my legs. So i did my best to keep myself warm. I put my scarf around my face in. Breathe down my front and poly bag on my head and my hands down my sleeves. Some tussock grass just keep the moisture. One mistake i made was to put the took over me. Which is damn i felt hypothermia kicking in. She said that the only thing that kept her away was the molly milk. Which is the albatross clicking like. Come on judy we can do. This did then pull on her so they are. But i i'm rented speaks this day. I have nothing to add. I feel like you need to was the last one finally. She waves her ipod in the air. Copter spots it and hoist her to safety Pine is a perfect expression of the falkland. Dispirit which is come together in the hardest times pump. There we got a lesson we can all take a heart in these difficult moments. Louis lafi style thank you that was more because louisiana. I'm mara with some outpost news for you. He wasn't anywhere else.

"On some of those biggest challenges time navarre's is digital officer bell thom butson artists reimagining medicine. You're back with the briefing on monocle. Twenty four i'm andrew miller. It's time now for one of our regular looks at what is making news in latin america. And i'm joined once more by latin america affairs editor. Lucinda elliott a listen to. We've spoken before about the the latest bunch of migrant caravans setting off from central america in the direction of the united states. There is another one on the move from honduras. Gets sort of a case of deja vu. At least three thousand more people had planned to gather in the early hours of yesterday in the same city of san pedro soula where another caravan set off from less than two weeks ago. A listeners might remember how roughly eight thousand people the vast majority honduran began walking north to the us in in large groups Breaking pass a human barricade that was formed by guatemalan police officers on a highway before their entry was denied. Now most was stopped that time. Less than twenty seven miles into guatemala. They didn't get anywhere near mexico. All the southern us border which will likely happen again but Several smaller guatemalan towns have been actually taking people in but it seems that any calls to deter them by saying it was dangerous during a pandemic that they posed a public health risk been entirely ignored. There is also the fact that the incoming administration of president joe biden has also been at pains to discourage the caravans. They've said it's not like we're going to fling. The borders open on day one and of course biden previously served an administration. Not barack obama. Which deported more than three million people. So is there a sense that these people are actually optimistic that they going to be able to get where they're trying to go. Yes certainly i mean biden also announced over the weekend. Four billion dollar aid package for what's called the northern triangle which is made up the ponderous guatemala el salvador now according to policy experts full billion dollars over four years directed at trying to reduce corruption and poverty is not nearly enough. The money would also help established centers throughout central america for people to pursue refugee resettlement in the us or elsewhere now last year about five hundred million dollars in us aid was allocated to central america. So while an upgrade compared to the trump and obama administration's probably not going to be enough to sort out the end allying issues. But it is creating a sense of of impetus among obviously among people who are extremely desperate. I think the aid package also is more of a gesture just to show how biden might approach the region more generally during his presidency that its own his agenda given his experience with latin america he previously sort of spearheaded the but presence obama's partnership for prosperity policy but i think by does understand that his executive orders on immigration will create more of a sense of drive for central american refugees to seek to travel to the united states far more quickly than any sort of program to address economic factors pushing them to abandon their homes in the first place. Well let's stay in honduras we have of course spoken in recent weeks about tina's moose to massively liberalize its own abortion honduras appears to be taking the opposite tack. Yes the conservative president upon ponderous and who we talked a little about earlier on the briefing this month. He's been in power since two thousand fourteen is more of what you described today as as a right wing populace now. His administration has presented a bill to congress this week that would effectively create a constitutional lock to prevent any future changes to the law around abortion. Now procedures have been outlawed in honduras since the since the nineteen eighties and the new legislation basically hinges on an article in the constitution. That gives a fetus. The same legal status as a person and honduras luck el-salvador and many other countries in the region have some of the most draconian laws around abortion. Women frequently frequently face jail time. But what some are saying is that the bill is coming in response to argentina a country. That legalized abortion in early pregnancy last month and became the first major country to do so we should look finally at an interesting discussion between argentina and the german flag carrier. Lufthansa is this a case of argentina. Using what seems like a fairly routine requests in an attempt to wind up the united kingdom. Let's live tons said it. It's made a request for flights over argentina. As part of a polar research expedition to the falklands because the traditional route they take by capetown was disrupted right to south africa to the very south of the continent but yes this is a classic response from the from the parents kitchen right. Government in argentina cristina fernandez vice president and former president has self feels very strongly about the islands and has often pulled out the sovereignty card. When things haven't been looking so good for argentines at the moment. The country is facing another recession massive unemployment. So you know. It's not entirely surprising. The current administration made some headlines out of tons of this week. How does this play within argentina. Though is it still really seen as that. Big a deal that you can generate. Some front pages with something is obviously inconsequential. Is this what is worth saying that the falkland islanders consider themselves just that they don't consider themselves argentine all british. I think depending on the generation that you're looking at in argentina particularly those who lost relatives or brothers or sons During the wall this does sort of rile up a sense of a nationalism but ocoee that for the for the younger generation. I think they're more worried about whether they're going to have a job next month. Listen to elliot. Thank you as always for joining us. That was monaco's latin. America affairs correspondent. Lucinda elliott. This is the briefing on monocle twenty four. You're listening to the briefing.

Not that far away. Mary. Anna, How are you? Well, I'm fine. Peter. How are you? Okay. How can I help you? In the last week. On Saturday, I was in and out of the kitchen listening to your radio show, and I heard a woman ask you a few things about an article and you one thing that you said it was the most memorable travel experience you ever had, which then piqued my interest, and I was wondering if you could give me some information. About planning a trip. Or is it a strenuous trip? Um, what would I call you? You know, I'm a single person Also do single people travel a lot for this trip. You know what they do? You know why? Because on the trip, you share one thing in common with everybody else. You want to go to Antarctica and you have a great done. OK, good. So here's how you do it. First of all, just to make be correct here. I did not say it was the most memorable experience, but it's certainly in the top 10. Without a doubt, and it reached it actually was my last continent. I've now check the boxes. You know that was the seventh and final continent for me, but I got back in a heartbeat. You're limited and when you could go, usually between the end of November on the end of February, and the real sweet spot is usually between Let's say December 10th in January, 10th. And there are a number of different ways you can go. I went on the cruise. I took a silver sea ship and the way you do that is you fly down to ah to Santiago, Chile, and then connect to another flight all the way South. To Aishwarya in Argentina. And you break you break up the trip a little bit. So you're not crazed. And then that's where you get on the ship. And on our itinerary. We went first to the Falkland Islands. I know. You know, you remember the name of the Falkland Islands. Oh, yeah. You don't. Okay, Well, the fuck you do, OK, but for everybody who doesn't that was the big war between Great Britain and Argentina over who owned the Falklands. And you know who won that war and the Falkland Islanders are very hardy breed of very pro British Our residents and great place to stop there. And then you had you keep heading further South. And that'll take you across the Drake passage. I have to warn you that they don't call it the Drake shake for nothing. It can be a little rough, but you know what you get through it. It's only about about 22 hours. And then you are there and it can't be more magical and I encourage you to go soon because global warming Israel And you can see the effects of it. You could see the effects of it in the northern regions and of course in a pie by the North Pole, and you certainly see it in the south in the in the Antarctic, But it is an amazing trip. And what's great about being on this ship. Is that you asked a strenuous it was. It's not that strenuous at all. Okay. You're with great naturalists. You're taking great Zodiac raft trips and very calm water into the different parts of the Antarctic where you're gonna hang out with Everybody from the Penguins to some Antarctic research stations were owned by the Chileans or the British or the or the Japanese. They're all down there and you're going to see some amazing history. Read up on Mr Shackleton. You should read up on Mr Shackleton and his failed and his failed attempts. But there's a lot of history down there and well worth it and bring your camera. It's almost impossible if the weather's good to take a bad picture, okay? Okay. Now, what did you say about between December 10th and January 10? That's the sweet spot in the calendar for the best weather down there, And by the way, when you do come back, I have to warn you. You look at your pictures and go I think I've taken too many penguin pictures. Ah, okay, so just be okay. Just be prepared for a penguin experience to Hey, Maryann. Thanks for checking in, Okay? You got it. Let's go to Sandy Sandy's out there in all over New York. Hello. How can I help you, Sandy? Well, Peter, my husband. I bought airplane ticket back in February to fly down to Panama City in Florida, and we brought them through cheapo air. The reason we're going with four our grandson's graduation and actually got post found from May and was re scheduled for July. No, I got hold of cheapo air. We rescheduled it for July and then come July, right Red State, Of course of Florida so I couldn't go. My husband couldn't go because of health issues.

"Okay so where we left off was Argentina had taken the Falklands with very little effort and then Margaret Thatcher realize what was going on in a big way and she went normal. Mar Watch that was dead on so once. Britain said you know what we're GONNA fight back here and we're GONNA take these islands back. It became the real deal thing And we'll talk about in the end there. You know casualties numbered at about a thousand on both sides so it still wasn't the biggest conflict but it was a real conflict. No really was in. Britain was in weird position. Argentina was in a weird position in that they were fighting a pretty substantial military but Britain in a weird position in that they knew that if they overshadowed force if they pounded the Argentinians into dust other countries might actually enter the war on the on the side of Argentina so they had to get these islands back with with without just using all of their might against Argentina. And with also saying. We're not gonNA come after you. Argentina yeah in Argentina supposedly. They explicitly said that Yeah I mean such a weird war and a weird time it really was. It was weird war but yeah a lot of people just kind of joke like Oh you know the the British invaded Falklands. What a what a over overblown move. But at the same time it was like you know Thatcher's Prime Ministry was on the line and also The the idea that these were British subjects who were being occupied like like. Make no mistake about it if you were in. Forget about them if you were living on the Falklands and you left Your House. You were living under Argentinian occupation they changed. What side of the road? You're supposed to drive on your crazy a little bit. You had to Oh by the way one of these days we're going to have to do a short stuff on Dogan. H It was in either Sweden or I think Sweden. It was the day that they changed from one side of the road to the other driving around the country. Yes it was just a big mess. So we'll talk about some time but You also had to carry like a white flag around with you to basically let them know you were non-combatant and even still even under those conditions I think at least three Falkland Islanders were killed during this war so like this. Was you know it was a it was a big deal and there was there were reasons for the British to invade And again you can really make the case. Argentineans were the aggressors in the situation. Yeah so April six The Great Britain finally Puts together a war cabinet? They they name their Operation Operation Corporate and they send down a couple of aircraft carriers about one hundred and twenty seven ships. They sit down fighter. Jets helicopters While they're doing this because like we mentioned it takes a long time to get down there on an aircraft carrier. They were still hoping to work. This out like France got involved and they said you know what we're not going to sell arms to Argentina anymore. They're flying are fighter jets by the way. So here's some help in defeating them right if you want a little inside scoop yeah. There's a little button on the back as long as you push it. And they won't be able to drop bombs. Reagan got involved. He called up a Gal. Gadot specifically said let's try and work it out peacefully GONNA send alhag down there and they said Nope. We don't want your help Reagan. So British Britain said. Oh you don't want Ronald Reagan's help then screw you. It's on yeah and so it was on from that point on the British. Were like all right. Well then it's just war is what we're going to do so they're Two aircraft carriers showed up and since they only had to they had a limited number of jets but it turns out that there jets were mostly useful in keeping the Argentinian. Fighter jets away from bombing and missile attacks on the ships but weren't successful in every case like as funny as it seems you know like the the British were fighting the already. Argentina had some some successes definitely in this war to it wasn't just surely lopsided. Yeah I mean Britain It all really really started. On April twenty fifth. In kind of the first things that Britain did was go after one of their submarines. The Santa Fe damaged that one pretty heavily That that submarine made it to the South Georgia island but The crew jumped off in basically retired that submarine on the spot Royal Marines were getting reinforced. The whole time and this is really what made the biggest difference is Britain had complete control of the the naval side of things right yet. Just immediately the Argentinians figured out like Oh we're we we aren't going to be able to do much with our navy but again we've got some fighter jets and you know their French and they work pretty good as long as you don't press that one button And they they used them to to good effect in that they would fly. Decoy flights to get the British jet succumb chase them and then the real Attack jets would come in and actually attacked like ship or maybe the mainland. Or something like that. You know that works. Maybe a couple of times sure they also had some They also had surface to air missiles that they used fairly well although the apparently accidentally shot down one of their planes at least once The the point of all this the upshot is that despite the British superiority in just about every single way Argentina did did have some success and they managed to stave off the British retaking the Falklands which spoiler alert the British retook the Falklands For this whole conflict lasted seventy four days. Yeah they sunk a destroyer I think they sunk some other ships. The big One of the big turning points was when on. May Second The General Bell Grennell which was an Argentinian cruiser was destroyed by the HMS Conqueror. And that was it. Like three hundred and twenty. Three men were killed basically in that attack. And that was you know. Not Half. But forty percent of the losses of the whole war right and most of most of Argentina's losses came from the sinking of that one ship. Yeah and that was viewed as fairly grotesque by a lot of people by the international community. Really BECAUSE REMEMBER. England needed to Great Britain needed to To basically show themselves as showing restraint this was not necessarily show. Restraint the The Argentinian said that this was not inside of the no go zone where there wasn't supposed to be That it had been tracked down by the British and sunk that they could have just disabled it but they they purposefully sunk it and that you know it killed three hundred twenty three Argentinians in one shot which is just bad press for anybody that makes England looked like a over overblown bully and you know they died in pretty terrible ways like a lot of them drowned but a lot of them frozen lifeboats because again. We're not that far away from Antarctica. Yeah and it took twenty four hours. I think for them to be rescued. So a lot of people froze to death in lifeboats waiting to be rescued because they were sunk by this British ship rather than just having their ship disabled. Yeah Ed made a nice little jaws reference in this dude. Did you catch that? I didn't May the second one thousand nine hundred two thousand ninety five men went into the water seven seventy to come out to see. Took the rest who I got it now. Then the other big terms hooper right. Yeah Yeah of course The other big turning point came. Of course this is all like sinking of ships and naval battles What they needed to do was take the main town and on May twenty first The British gained a very Good foothold when they made it on East Falkland and started advancing towards Stanley which was not Stanley. The guy that was just they're cleaning up but Stanley. The town's Stanley the measuring tape. That's right And they basically you know Argentine would fight till they ran out of ammo than they would get captured in. The Brits would just move slowly. I think for May Twenty first to June eleventh They finally assaulted Stanley and on June fourteen. They'll port family on June fourteenth. So just three days after they finally got to Stanley they surrendered Argentina. Did but but no here that it was may twenty first that the British finally landed on East Falkland and June thirteenth that they managed to take control of Stanley three weeks. It was three weeks and the Argentineans.

Yes, it was just a big mess, so we'll talk about some time, but you also had to carry like a white flag around with you to basically let them know you were non-combatant, and even still even under those conditions I think at least three Falkland Islanders were killed during this war, so like this. Was You know it was a? It was a big deal. And there was there were reasons for the British to invade and again you can really make the case Argentineans. Were the aggressors in the situation? Yeah so April six The Great Britain finally. puts together a war cabinet they they name their Operation Operation Corporate. And they send down a couple of aircraft carriers about one hundred and twenty seven ships. They sit down fighter jets. There's helicopters. while they're doing this because like we mentioned, it takes a long time to get down there on an aircraft carrier. They were still hoping to work this out like France got involved, and they said you know what we're not going to sell arms to Argentina anymore. They're flying. Are fighter jets by the way, so here's some help in defeating them right. If you want a little inside scoop, yeah, there's a little button on the back as long as you push it and they won't be able to drop bombs. Reagan got involved. He called up a GAL Gadot specifically said. Let's try and work it out peacefully. GonNa Send Alhag down there and they said Nope. We don't want your help Reagan so British Britain said Oh. You don't want Ronald Reagan's help. Then screw you. It's on yeah, and so it was on from that point on the British were like all right well, then it's just war is what we're going to do, so they're Two aircraft carriers showed up, and since they only had to. They had a limited number of jets, but it turns out that there jets were mostly useful in keeping the Argentinian fighter jets away from bombing and missile attacks on the ships, but weren't successful in every case like as funny as it seems, you know like the the British were fighting the. Already Argentina had some some successes definitely in this war to. It wasn't just surely lopsided. Yeah, I mean Britain it all really really started on April twenty fifth. In kind of the first things that Britain did was. Go after one of their submarines, the Santa Fe damaged that one pretty heavily that that submarine made it to the South Georgia island, but the crew jumped off in basically retired that submarine on the spot. Royal Marines were getting reinforced the whole time and this is. Really what made the biggest difference is Britain had complete control of the the naval side of things right yet. Just immediately. The Argentinians figured out like Oh. We're we. We aren't going to be able to do much with our navy, but again we've got some fighter jets, and you know their French, and they work pretty good as long as you don't press that one button, and they. They used them to to good effect in that they would fly decoy flights to get the British jet succumb, chase them, and then the real attack jets would come. Come in and actually attacked like ship, or maybe the mainland or something like that. There were maybe a couple of times sure they also had some They also had surface to air missiles that they used fairly well, although the apparently accidentally shot down one of their planes at least once, the the point of all this, the upshot is that despite the British superiority in just about every single way Tina did did have some success, and they managed to stave off the British, retaking the Falklands which spoiler alert the British retook. The Falklands for. This whole conflict lasted seventy four days. Yeah, they sunk a destroyer i. think they sunk some other ships. The big one of the big turning points was when on May second. the General Bell Grennell, which was an Argentinian cruiser. was destroyed by the HMS Conqueror and that was it like three hundred and twenty three men were killed basically in that attack and that was. You know not half, but forty percent of the losses of the whole war, right and most of. Most of Argentina's losses came from the sinking of that one ship. Yeah, and that was viewed as fairly grotesque by a lot of people by the international community, really because remember inland needed to Great Britain needed to To basically show themselves as showing restraint, this was not necessarily show restraint. The the Argentinian said that this was not inside of the. Zone where there wasn't supposed to be that it had been tracked down by the British and sunk that they could have just disabled it, but they they purposefully sunk it, and that you know it killed three hundred twenty three Argentinians, in one shot, which is just bad press for anybody it makes. England looked like a over overblown bully. And you know they died in pretty terrible ways like a lot of them drowned, but a lot of them frozen lifeboats because again. We're not that far away from Antarctica Yeah and it took. Twenty four hours, I think for them to be rescued, so a lot of people froze to death in lifeboats, waiting to be rescued because they were sunk by this British ship rather than just having their ship disabled yeah. Ed made a nice little jaws reference in this dude. Did you catch that I didn't? May the second one thousand, nine, hundred two. Thousand? Ninety five men went into the water, seven seventy to come out to see took the rest. Do I got it now? the other big terms. Hooper right? Yeah, yeah, of course, the other big turning point came. Of course. This is all like sinking of ships and naval battles what.

"Okay so the British are saying. Hey not only have. We had a claim on this since at least eighteen thirty four. The people who live there consider themselves British. It's ours but the Argentinian said. Now you know what? The Spanish health is placed before the British and we inherited any any title to it from the Spanish for after the revolution There's a there's a it's closer to us. What else do you want? What do you want to hear? And the Argentineans claim on the Falklands is actually fairly tenuous but The the has not stopped them from from kind of coveting these islands and making attempts to go after them over the years. Yeah I mean you know. Argentina will say you guys left in seventeen seventy four So you abandon it. Britain would say well you never established any kind of serenity there right There were no indigenous. People is not like we came down here and kicked all your people outta here in displaced them So there's really no big moral claims either and I don't know if I know enough about it even after all this to really say without making some people mad but it seems like it was Britain's. Yeah Yeah no. It's still like a point of national soreness in Argentina and in A. I think there's a little bit of national pride in in the UK of it but yes the fact that the people who live there and have are descended. Some people who've lived there since eighteen thirty four conservatives themselves British. That's I agree with you that to me. You says it's it's a British territory which extensively would make Argentina the The invading force the bad people. Yes and that's the thing like we always have to have good guys and bad guys in there. Both sides did good and bad things. During this conflict. They were bad people on both sides. But you can you can. Oh man you can make man chuck you can make the case that yes if you have to identify an aggressor in this situation it was Argentina who did it because again the Spanish settled before the British but then the Spanish left. In the Argentinians overthrew the Spanish there were no indigenous people that lived on these islands that were connected to Argentine Argentina. In any way there's really no legal or moral claim that Argentina had aside from proximity and that just doesn't really hold up when it comes to the territorial dispute so yes you can really make the case that Argentina was the aggressor and it doesn't hurt that the proportion of Argentinian listeners. To suffer you should know pales in comparison to the British proportion so leading up to the war. This is sort of the scene. You've got the people living on the Falkland Islands The economy wasn't great. It's never been booming like we said it's a very small seaside. Hamlet of farmers Yep They were depending on the British government Subsidies to to even get by and this is you know back in the late seventies early eighties Britain says you know what we would like to start trading with Argentina. We would like to help these islanders out. Maybe let them move some wool. Maybe make it easier to get fuel. And supplies and Margaret Thatcher comes into power and says maybe it might also be nice to sell them weapons in Argentina they need missiles. And we've got him yeah. She opened her trench coat. She's like what do you need? We need gotta gotTa never went. Whoa lady I'm not saying she was nude. Oh Okay just that. She had missiles inner trench. Gotcha so he there was. One other thing wasn't just that the British were being patrimonial and really wanted to help the falklanders out. By opening up trade between them and the Argentineans they also wanted to potentially offload responsibility for the Falcons to Argentina. Kind of like how you would consider selling a car that you knew maybe had fifty miles left in a man but you could sink some money into repairing your to whatever or you can sell it to some Schmo And Br Great Britain identified that this would be a great bargaining chip the Argentina's. Really want this thing so maybe we can sell them. This used car in addition to selling them some missiles for a few billion pounds. Argentina's that can I take it for a spin and Britain went. I can't find the keys right now but we go ahead and make the deal see if I can find him. It runs great though. Yeah exactly so just trust me but but imagine what you just said in a British accent. Yeah I've thought about doing it but so The thing is this didn't go over very well with Great Britain Ninety like Whoa. Whoa whoa you can't just. These are British subjects in some form or another. You can't just abandon them to the Argentine. You can't sell them out. And the people on the island of the Falklands. Were not very happy with this either Supposedly they used to call themselves calpers and I think I get the impression that it's one of those things that they can still call themselves calpers but if you're from Argentina and you call them calpers then that's that's fighting words okay but They did not They did not like the idea of being sold off to the Argentinians in a as a pawn in a larger trade negotiation to sell missiles that that just didn't sit well with them. No and you get why I totally get. Why in the other problem is is this is this is just so neo lip to the Thatcher administration went in. It was like this is really what we wanted to sell missiles. But we're not going to give one way or another is no compromise on the Falklands. It's either all or nothing and They they I guess. Wanted to open trade to Argentinians but didn't WANNA give them to the Argentinians with Argentinians wanted them and rather than find a compromise like I said it was just all or nothing and they just left it as they basically scared the pants off of the Falkland. Islanders saying we're willing to basically leave you guys hanging But at the same time they weren't willing to to pull the trigger and go all the way and and Argentina have the Falklands and maybe administer them correctly who knows so instead the Falkland Islands were left in this weird geopolitical limbo in a starting about nineteen. Seventy nine I believe nineteen eighty To where no one quite knew exactly how interested Great Britain was in holding. These islands are Argentina was very interested in getting these islands in the Falkland. Islanders were caught in the middle of this yet on the Argentinian side. They were Sort of in the midst of a right wing military dictatorship That after seventy six coup They were not nice people. They terrorize people. They murdered their opponents. They imprison people. It was called the dirty war within that or a few years. After that nineteen eighty-one there was an an internal coup Within that same party where a General Leopoldo Galtieri good sure right He went into power but still that same right wing faction and they wanted not only the Falklands. They wanted the south They wanted South Georgia Island and South Sandwich. Islands in basically wanted that whole sort of south Atlantic area because of Antarctica. Yeah Yeah so they The other thing is a lot of people point to this. Did you. Mention the name of that the dictatorship the The NPR NO. It's the opposite of the NPR. It's the it's the opposite national reorganization process instead of the ethos of Vr. Oh it is a guess. Guess older. They're both into reeducation sure. Oh boy so `Argentina saying like okay. We're a military junta. We don't know what to do with the economy were super oppressive especially against our opposition will make you disappear and murder your family and all this stuff. This is a bad jam at home. We need something to make. Everybody feel good about being Argentinean again. Maybe maybe if we go get these Falkland Islands this little adventurism that we go on will restore patriotism in Argentina. And we'll make everybody look the other way on the what's called the dirty war that we've been fighting for the last few years since we've come to power and that was kind of like the the big impetus toward Argentina. They had like these military aspirations because it was after all American military coup. That took over as a military dictatorship. So where else are you going to do? Military stuff but at the same time. Britain was widely viewed around. The world is not really caring much about what happened to the Falcons and I think that that gave Argentina in overblown sense of how easy it would be to. Just go ahead and take these islands once. And for all as their own yeah. They needed this for nationalism..
