During the nuclear war the Argentina wasn't hit by any powers and it remain in a stable mod, but the fear and the increase of refugees from Northern Hemisphere lead the government of suspend temporarelly the constitution, but only few refugees arrive from the North, mainly Americans or Panamanians, the Argentinian government accept this  refugees, mainly form the US and Panama, this citizens was integrated info Argentina in some mounths, soon enugh Argentina restore contact with neighbour countries and with Falklands and South Georgia, reunited now under the Falkland State, the government try to negotiate with the Falklands for unite them with Argentina, but at the end all the tentative fail and so Argentina give up the idea of take the Falklands for the moment.

Annexation of the Falklands

Main Article: Falklands War

However, in 1966 the Argentine Government was overthrown in a Coup, replacing Isabel Martínez de Peron with Jorge Rafael Videla, leader of the Militaristic Junta. Whilst this Junta was less than friendly with the Falklands, and cutted many deals, it seemed unlikely that they'd take any action against the Falklands. However, in 1971, Leopoldo Galtieri became the new President of the Junta. Four months into his leadership, his popularity proved to be extremely low, and a plan was hatched to improve public morale.

On the April 2nd 1971, Argentine troops landed in South Georgia, and overthrew the small group of Royal Marines still stationed there. Receiving reports, the Falklands government protested, and began to prepare for an invasion. Concurrently, Argentine Troops landed in Port Stanley. By the end of the day Stanley had fell and the government fell, and over the next few days the rest of the Islands fell under Argentine control.

This event increase the popularity of Galtieri among the Argentinians and he use this even for gather more popularity with the fully annession of the Falkland and South Georgia under Argentina, he also decide to end the martial law and create a national day for the reunification of the Malvinas with their motherland. 

At this same time Argentines, often with little choice, were "encouraged" to settle on the Islands, and Spanish was made the official language in many quarters.

In the late 70s the Royal Navy organize a trip to the southern hemisphere for see if any territory was hit or damage, this convoy start from Cardiff and after have passed the Canadian and the american coast arrive at the Carabbiean disocer that all the ex-british colony unded them under the West Indies Federation, from there they arrive more south near the South Georgia islands, when the trip reach the sea near the island they have noted an Argentinian flag on the dock, so they communicate via radio they arrive and the permission for attrach, 

Democratic Transfer

However, in 1980, after failures continued, Galtieri was desposed and accused of violation of Human Rights. Reynaldo Bignone, formally a Major in the Army, was appointed President. There he started democratic reforms, though also granted amnesty to human rights abusers, himself including. In 1982 the first free elections for over two decades were held, with Raúl Alfonso elected as President, and promptly reversed Bignone's amnesties. Over the next few years he was to take out democratic reforms, preventing any further coups. On the 2nd April 1982, 7 years after direct Argentine rule, the Falklands were granted to become a region of the Argentinia, allowing democratic home rule. Whilst Spanish remained in official and educational use alongside English, many Argentines emigrated back to the mainland, though many stayed too.
