200 Years of Theft and Colonialism

Intro.....Part 1.....Part 2.....Part 3.....Part 4
ForeignPolicy.com has a write-up on the Malvinas anniversary along with a quote from the Guardian and the Argentine government!  Flash: they're both wrong.  Could yanquimike.com.ar have the real story?

The Argentine Government:
One hundred and eighty years ago on the same date, January 3rd, in a blatant exercise of 19th-century colonialism, Argentina was forcibly stripped of the Malvinas Islands, which are situated 14,000km (8700 miles) away from London.
The Argentines on the Islands were expelled by the Royal Navy and the United Kingdom subsequently began a population implantation process similar to that applied to other territories under colonial rule. Since then, Britain, the colonial power, has refused to return the territories to the Argentine Republic, thus preventing it from restoring its territorial integrity.
The Brits have a different version of that history, reports the Guardian
The FCO also disputes Fernández's claim that Britain kicked out the island's original Argentinian inhabitants. It says there was no civilian population on the island in 1833, with the Royal Navy expelling an Argentine military garrison that had arrived three months earlier. "We can't talk about sovereignty unless and until the Falkland islanders agree to it," the FCO said.
The real story

Not only is the story absolutely fascinating but the illegal yanqui smashing of the Malvinas appears to be the cause of the whole sad chain of events leading to the British theft and West-Bank style repopulation, to the 1982 war, to the events of today.
Interesting that neither party mentions how the United States was bamboozled into causing the conflict.
