Falkland Islanders, Argentines remember Thatcher

Posted:

Falkland Islanders have honored Margaret Thatcher with a memorial service, while in Buenos Aires, Argentine military veterans burned her picture along with a Union Jack.

   The competing visions of the late British prime minister Wednesday could not be more different.

   Islanders consider Thatcher their savior, while Argentines say she died a war criminal for sinking the Argentine warship Belgrano during Britain's 1982 war to end Argentina's military occupation.
