At Long, Last We Can Virtually Invade The Malvinas

Finally. After many years of being chastised by history, the time has come for Argentina to enact its revenge and reclaim what rightfully belongs to its population.

No, I’m not talking about Lionel Messi, I’m talking about the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands, that solitary outpost placed by God at the end of the world that has two adorable countries (Argentina and the UK) at odds because it seems everyone in the world wants to live there.

Since the 1982 war, many Argentines have felt the bitter taste of defeat in the back of their throats. And as the Malvinas sovereignty case continues to resonate among the population and transcends the country’s frontiers to become a regional cause, many feel empowered to take the matter one step further.

So now, just in time for Easter Weekend the 31st anniversary of the Malvinas War, Rosario company Datattec has released a downloadable detailed map of Puerto Argentino (Port Stanley), that you can install on your Counter-Strike video game in order to finally fulfill your fantasy of invading the islands and killing whoever you come across to the rhythm of Argentina’s National Anthem.

What a neat idea!

As long as we’re not killing people in real life, right?

Also, I appreciate the end of the video, a shout out to the “soldado desconocido” (unknown soldier), which is definitely not a cheap shot aimed at fostering shallow patriotism.

It seems to me someone has been watching too many Navy Seals movies.
