Looking back at the effects of neo-colonialism

Argentina just built a memorial for soldiers who lost their lives in the Falklands War, which was between the UK and Argentina over islands off the coast. I think the fact that some of the conflicts we are studying happened very recently does not really strike me until they come back in the news. You really still get to see that the families involved are still suffering. Also, the fact that Argentina and England now have not been able to get past the wars makes it obvious that Latin America still has many issues in resolving their image in the global world.
Here's a video on the new monument:
