I'm Argentinian and I don't know if someone would ever read this that you forgot: the dictator of Argentina sent 18 to 22 years old guys to fight in the war without any previous training. They took young men from their families to fight a war they've never expected to fight. Organizations sent them donations such as food and clothes, but the soldiers never received them. This is why so many people here (myself included) say that our true enemy were not the British but our Negligent Goverment Those Argentinian soldiers were victims of the dictatorship of Argentina This rivalry is stupid, and I won’t get mad for some piece of land, I just feel sorry for all the lives lost in that war.

​@beckyloveridge1086 I'll be honest w u,I think then islands are rightfully Argentinian and just a sad attempt from an imperialistic falling empire to assert its dominance.

@beckyloveridge1086 6 aylar önce
@sasori9624 Oil certainly is a big factor (for both sides). Personally, i''m more grieved that the French didn't try harder to claim the island way back when, but hey, i might not exist if that was the case! And as much as i'm sure they'd love to, I doubt Argentina will ever get the Islands peacefully, as the Falklanders will never leave.

Belgrano's sinking was only controversial amongst folk of a certain type. Her captain himself said he'd have done the same. That she was outside the exclusion zone didn't mean anything. The UK was at war with Argentina, she was an enemy war vessel and therefore could expect what she got. Certainly a tragedy, but it was a war.
@xxnightdriverxx9576 2 aylar önce
The exclusion zone existed so the British would not accidentally fire on other ships from other nations passing by. It was basically a "everything inside this zone will be sunk" type of thing. It was never specified by the British government that Argentinian ships would only be sunk in the exclusion zone. It was never intended to be that way either. But some people apparently think that way lol.

The captain also admitted a few years ago that he was ordered and travelling on a course to reengage the British, and agreed it was a fully legitmate target.

@@xxnightdriverxx9576 It's because any ship entering the exclusion zone that wasn't british would be viewed as trying to resupply the argentinians, the argies weren't safe anywhere, they'd be attack anywhere, again people need to realize the exclusion zone was never intended for the argentinians, it was intended to keep civilian vessels and foreign countries vessels safe and away from the fighting or they'd run the risk of being attacked, if an argentinian vessel sailed towards the uk and entered uk homeland waters, that vessel would be attacked aswell, the argentinians even tried to attack gibraltar during their failed Operation Algeciras. The argentine navy was never safe apart from if they were staying in another countries port but even then they'd have been told to leave anyway.

My father was a conscript, sent to fight for Argentina in the Falklands War. The stories he's told me, from the Argentinian perspective, are legitimately bone chilling. From the fact that a bunch of severely undertrained young adults were forcibly being sent to fight an organized opponent, to the number of broken weapons many were being giving, to the INTENTIONAL drugging of foods being provided to them in order to calm the fear many experienced as they feared for the worst knowing all the odds stacked against them. And all because a deeply corrupt government wanted to curry support from it's citizens. I wasn't born until long after the war, but I still don't get how many Argentineans still care so much for the island, young and old. I can maybe get why people at the time felt so strongly for them (given all the propaganda being spread), but in this day in age, with all the info out there, I don't get it. Even my dad, who admittedly is still very bitter about the war, states that most of his anger now lies more with the Argentine government then it does with the British.

Yeah, the Argentinian troops were mostly conscripts with far too few officers and NCOs to lead them, whereas the lead British troops were Royal Marines and Paras, both highly trained, elite formations (the Marines have the longest basic training course of any regular army in the world at 42 weeks).

"If Argentina, which had no functional military as of 2017 and even less in 2020, were to attempt to invade the Falkland Islands today with their single remaining rubber boat, they would be easily repelled by a combination of the Chilean shepherds with their imposing facones, the East Falkland Junior Women’s Air Pistol team, and a working Border Collie named Goofy (held in reserve)."

The landscape and climate was very similar to areas of Wales and Scotland where the British train- it was just as miserable as home. The Argentinians were trained (it at all) to fight in warm or tropical South America. A minor fun point- some settlers in Argentina were from Wales and spoke Welsh. It was a great 'code' language as no other S American countries spoke it. However un encrypted radio messages were listened into by the Welsh Guards who were fluent in Welsh and so they got good info.

Another interesting story from this conflict is the one of the UK's forward air attacks by RAF Avro Vulcan Bombers. They were I believe transported to the ascension islands and then flew to the Falklands, being refueled by Handley Paige Victor Carrier/Bombers - which also had to be refueled in the air in an incredibly complex operation. It's called Operation Black Buck, and it's a really interesting story of Thatcher's desire to keep the island, and of the ingenuity of the RAF engineers and pilots to make it happen.
@asharak84 2 aylar önce
It was an interesting operation, logistically and technically impressive, and also a really stupid waste of resources :D I love the Vulcan in general and love the style points for managing to get non-naval aircraft over Argentina but it achieved almost nothing, knew in advance it was likely to achieve almost nothing and significantly added to the workload of the sea harriers at a time when they were fairly critical to the overall success of the invasion. As someone who didn't live through it, didn't have to make any of the decisions etc I like that it happened, makes for interesting history to learn about, but I think had I been part of the Navy I'd have been very unimpressed.

"Start a war to distract your people" this one aged well
1:49 compared that Napoleon Bonaparte design with the new one used in the French Revolutions' and the Napolonic Wars' videos. Shows how much time does Oversimplified take to do the designs of important characters.

Did you know the Falkland war was one of the last wars for an army to use bayonets. Some marines were pinned and out of ammo so the lieutenant told them to load bayonets (because you know, Royal Marines). It was only then the Argentinians surrendered that battle because it well and good shooting at a range but when you have 50 or so marines charging at you with point bits of metal with the intent to kill you until you kill them all is a bit less ok

What I like about these videos is that the style basically never changes so I can watch a video from four years ago and not notice.

Falklands dont want to be independent, thats why they voted to stay with Btitain.

@thedog556 No we havent... The British supply us via RAF Mount Pleasant. We enjoy talking to the British because they didnt keep us hostage in our homes like Argentina did. We dont want no Argies on are island.

I'm so disappointed that noone noticed the background music from Covert Cabal starting at 6:34. Very well done, OverSimplified!
