Chris James Posted February 25, 2012 Report Share Posted February 25, 2012 I'm sure you've seen the article by now. It still pisses me off whenever I see something like this: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/17-tons-of-silver-gold-coins-from-1804-shipwreck-are-returned-to-spain/2012/02/25/gIQAYs6fZR_story.html How convenient that Spain can rape a country's wealth 200 years ago and still end up with the booty. I cringe every time we celebrate Columbus Day here in America. The Spaniards were nothing but arrogant bastards responsible for the rape and murder of the native population in the Americas. Spain is not one of my favorite countries for many reasons, and this only puts them further up on my S**T list. If there was to have been some justice in all this then Peru should have had the silver and gold returned to them to make a political statement about the Spanish. Some European countries don't deserve our respect. I would hope the salvage company sent them a bill for all the time and effort it took to bring this treasure up from the bottom. The Spanish sure didn't have the balls to get it for themselves, they had to use the court to steal it...again. Quote Link to comment
