Argentina/Chile: Memories of a War and an Almost War

Clarin has a photo gallery from its photographer, Pepe Mateos, to commemorate thirty years since the time that the Beagle conflict nearly exploded into war between Chile and Argentina.

Meanwhile, a Chilean has found a message in a bottle thrown into the sea in memory of an Argentine killed during the sinking of the Belgrano in the Falklands/Malvinas war.
“My dearest brother Javier: I’m writing these lines knowing you’ll never get to read them. I imagine you in a beautiful vessel with your friends. But what is most painful is seeing you sail along the channel and not coming back. Your grave is the Argentine Sea, and your name is in many monuments”, says one of the excerpts from the message published in the media.
