Argentine independence - 1816Who was the bad guy?
A military dictatorship that was torturing and killing it’s own people or people who were up until this point living a peaceful existence on an island they’d occupied for at least as long as Argentina has existed as a country.
jury is out
The Veinticinco de Mayo was actually Argentina's SECOND aircraft carrier. The first one was the Independencia, which was retired in the 1970s. The Independencia was acquired back in the 1950s when Argentina was hell bent in becoming the ultimate military power in the Southern Hemisphere. The acquisition of the carrier helped make the case to move the Brazilian capital from coastal Rio de Janeiro to deeper inland. Brazil also responded by acquiring its own aircraft carrier, the Minas Gerais.Don't know much about it to be honest. But was impressed that Argentina had an aircraft carrier.
