are, always have been, and forever will be part of Argentina.
the sons of Argentina who’s toil, courage, and skill have won us our
due pride and dignity, I salute you.
You have accomplished a great thing.
All Argentines owe you a debt of gratitude for restoring our
national honor at such risk and cost to yourselves.
You have liberated, decisively and forever, the soil of Argentina
that was usurped so long ago. Thank
those who lost a loved one, our proud nation mourns with you.
We can never repay the debt we have incurred by your sacrifice.

courage and skill will never be doubted by anyone. There is honor and glory to be found even in defeat.
You have done your country proud.
Unfortunately for you, the victory is not yours.
the nation of Britain: From
this day forward, Argentina bears you no ill will.
We understand that your belief that the Malvinas were British
territory was held in good faith. We
do not resent it. Unfortunately
for you, your belief was false. And
so, you lost.

make land and property available for true Argentines to resettle the
islands. The Minister of
the Interior will announce the details of the plan later.

ill will either. As long as
they behave and stay on their side of our borders, there will be no
conflict with them.

The communist party will present a new post-war plan for the
continuing transformation of the economy.

as descamisados. We will
build wealth for all Argentines, equally, honestly, with pride, and with
no tolerance for capitalist abuses.
All will contribute what they can and take no more than they

to be your humble servant.
