To those of us who lived through military dictatorships in Latin America, General Galtieri of Argentina is always remembered. He is the man who launched the military coup in Argentina in 1976. Before his reign of terror was finished over 30,000 Argentines were dead or missing. Hundreds of children were taken from their parents and given to other families. In 1982 when the military government saw its end coming, General Galtieri ordered Argentine forces to invade the British-controlled Falkan Islands. He thought that it would draw attention away from his domestic political problems. He also arrogantly assumed that the British would not fight to save such a worthless piece of real estate.
