Argentine Falklands War troops 'tortured by their own side'

Argentine Falklands War troops 'tortured by their own side'

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-34252025

"Argentine soldiers were subjected to abuse and torture by their own superiors during the 1982 Falklands War against Britain, files released by Argentina's armed forces reveal.

They are the first official documents from the conflict to be made public and contain testimonies from soldiers who say they were poorly equipped and cold. ..."

A conscript army with poor leadership.

The beatings will continue until moral improves!

They are still treating conscripts that way. It is Latin America.
