The history of the islands is complex. It was discovered by the French, it was first settled by the Spainish (which is why they claim it) then that settlement was razed to the ground by the US Navy for some bizzare dispute about poaching and the Spainish abandoned it.

Then the Brits came by and settled the abandoned ruins.

Summery of the causes of the Falklands war:

Chileans were antagonistic toward Argentina when the latter invaded the Falklands.

Arguably, the Argies might have won the war, their best troops, like their elite mountain units were stationed on their border with Chile because the Chile at the time was run by a guy who heavily sided with Western interests and made a lot of noise about warring them.

I don't think she considered that at all, but she had considered bombing targets on the mainland. Oddly enough, the UK and the Argies were almost allies, the former having considered selling strategic bombers to the argies, just a couple years prior to the conflict, but the deal fell through. The Argies could have done a lot of damage to the UK fleet if they had them. 90% of their problem was that all their aircraft were crappy old 1960's US and French fighters and attackers based on the mainland of Argentina and had little 'dwell time' around the islands, they spent most of their fuel flying to and back from the theater. A long-range bomber coulda/maybe made some kind of difference.

Many British politicians were willing to negotiate a cease fire and possible peace with German.

The war just would have escalated.

While the expedition sent to fight in the Falklands might have failed, they'd probably have mustered another and had some allies tag along that would have won the second round. Thatcher would just use the loss as fuel for even more support and would have tried again. She'd never just like, sign over the islands and it's people because the Argies sank an aircraft carrier or killed a bunch of sailors or soldiers.

Chilean army was, as many other Latino armies, modelled after the French one (see: pictures of the Pacific War). After the Fanco-Prussian war, Chile realized France was shit and Prussia was becoming the warlord of the world, so they hired Prussian advisors and remade the entire military (about 60 years before Nazis even existed).
Nowadays, in both equipment and actual organization, it's much closer to the US army. It buys shit from Germany because it's cheap, available, and damn good, but it also buys from Brazil, the US, Israel, etc (only shit we still acquire from the germans are vehicles, like the Leopard tanks).

We lefties don't have issues talking about the dictatorship. Also, talking about the crimes against humanity done by USA-instigated politicians with actual people from the USA might be therapeutic.

Righties tend to be more shy about those issues, since they understand that, unless you are in for fascism, regular people from foreign countries don't hold Pinochet on high regard.

I think the person is an offspring of Matthei, as they seemed to imply their mother had only had four months to campaign and was just happy to have made it to the second round.

Also, is it just me or is the vibe from Chile pretty laid back for how much the US and the Venezuelan opposition (reading right wing screeds from Caracas based news outlets makes me question the competence and/or the authoritarianism of the Maduro regime, though his laughably stereotypical comments about bourgeois parasites last week aren't helping) media are freaking out about Bachelet turning advanced lovely capitalist Chile into a Bolivarian rogue state?

I suppose it helps that the two candidates are friendly with each other (which must be awkward when both their dads were generals, but one worked for the regime that tortured the other to death) ?

Colombian here, the rpg scene is pretty small and consists mostly of isolated groups, dominated by D&D (but other games aren't unheard of, there is some WoD, L5R, and other 2nd-tier game presence), and with shitty edition-warrior attitudes towards any new game and role-playing-not-roll-playing bulshit added to the mix. Overall a pretty shitty scene.
On the other hand, the MtG scene is small but healthy, but growing steadily. Most of my rpg buddies jumped on the MtG bandwagon a few years ago, so I lost my rpg group, and I dont care about MtG, so I'm fucked.

You know calling America imperialist is just rhetoric people use when America's involved in a war they don't like, right?

Actual, literal, imperialism is things like annexing Tibet, Hong Kong and Macau, wanting to annex Mongolia and Taiwan, creating puppet states in every communist country you border, and claiming deserts, mountainsides and islands off every other country you have so much as a maritime boundary with.

Claiming modern America is "imperialist" in the context of either historic colonialism or neo-imperialist countries like China is laughable to anyone with any knowledge of current affairs.

It's pretty revolting that you consider the West's current wars to be morally equivalent to a billion people living in indentured servitude and forced abortions on a scale that would amount to literal genocide were it committed against a race.
