Yes I know, the Falklands (las Malvinas) are British, but the Argentines are convinced they were, are, and always will be theirs. It is even written in the Argentine schoolbooks. I always wondered if the Argentines actually believe that the Falklands are theirs. Every Argentine I have ever asked said no, of course not. But still, I wonder. Who puts these slogans on the walls, who carries these banners? And why? Why do the Argentines pay so much importance to these islands?  Why do they want those islands so badly? Is there oil perhaps? It is a mystery to me.

Today I saw another Malvinas slogan. And I just wonder. Are they worth the fuss?
