And Vice President Julio Cobos said in the southern city of Rio Grande that “we must recover this territory that is ours, that belongs to us.”
Above is the Argentine cruiser ARA General Belgrano going down after being torpedoed by the British submarine HMS Conqueror on May 2nd, 1982. The bow was blown off by one of two torpedoes that hit and sank the ship. She was the ex-USS Phoenix (CL 46), laid down in 1935 and a survivor of Pearl Harbor.
