Agree. I know there is tension between the two nations but I haven't heard outright hatred for Thatcher.

I'm not all that sad about Margaret Thatcher's death but I'm surprised you took my comment at face value. If I was Argentinian I would probably be pretty satisfied right now, though.

I wouldn't. Thatchers death would mean nothing to me.

EDIT: In fact, if I was Argentinian I'd be less mad at Thatcher and more mad at my own government for using the Falkland Wars as a diversion.
