Who They?

Inhabitants of Argentina with a weird tendency to stare. Likely to be a bit thick as many of them think they own the Falkland Islands (what they refer to as Las Malvinas), which is, of course, ridiculously irrational since the islands are lying just offshore and not thousands of miles, an entire hemisphere and about 60 cultural years away. Claim that they sank the whole Royal Navy, shot down the whole RAF and slaughtered the entire Para/Gurkha/Marine ground force during the 1982 dust up over the Falklands... or so they say.

They bitterly complain that the UK cheated during said 1982 dust up over the Falklands by sending professionals when they only sent conscripts (cannon fodder) - the real troops being needed at home to prop up the military junta "runnng" the country.

Argies are hot-headed and easily lead - especially by firebrand politicos who consistently resurrect the Malvinas as an issue, usually to cover up their inept and corrupt government. As a result we hear rumblings of Falklands II every 18 months or so. Most recently its all about the oil that might be under the islands with the Argies intent on a little piracy on the high seas to hammer home their demands. Pity Gordon got rid of the RN: it didn't save his arse unlike Maggie - who knew that withdrawing the RN patrol in late 1981 was an ideal way to ultimately reverse one's appalling poll ratings enough to win a general election thanks to an electorate who cheerfully helped her shit all over their nation's economic, moral and cultural future because they saw lots of people on the telly all waving flags at ships .

The birds are well fit though, but creepy!.

Nazis ... allegedly

Argentina was a bolt hole (allegedly) of some high and not so high ranking Nazis after things went a bit pear shaped in 1945. As a result there may well be some Argentinians who have an odd tendency to click their heels together when saluting and sport small moustaches limited to just under noses (although where else would you have a moustache?)... assuming cloning does work!.
