Brothers in arms

Brothers in arms

I have a number of Argentine veterans on my Facebook account who fought in the Falklands war, to them the Malvinas. The anniversary of the invasion 2 April invokes lots memories for both them and us and in some people anger still at their hostile act and the subsequent loss of life. I suppose there are some on both sides who may question forming a friendship with one another after war and especially given that Argentina still lays claim to the Islands.

Well regardless of what happened all those years ago we soldiers who fought each other fight no longer and whatever happens in the Falklands then that will be for a younger generation to sort out, I hope it never comes to war again because already too much blood has been spilled on those far away Islands. However I will always offer the hand of friendship and peace to my old adversaries because it is the right thing to do.
