Seconded. I knew I was going to botch Guantanamo, so tried Gitmo before resigning myself to trying the longer version.

I didn't expect it to accept Gitmo, but thought I'd try it first as it would be faster. Saved me some time.

This may be pedantic, so sorry in advance. Guantanamo isn't a prison - it's a city, a province, and the name of a bay near the city, in the south of Cuba. Geopolitically, perhaps, the prison at the naval base on the bay may be more important than the city, the province, and the bay, but people on this site are often savvy enough to know the difference between a thing-in-itself and an appropriation. The famous song "Guantanamera," for example, is about a woman from the city and has nothing to do with anyone's naval base or prison.

It is pedantic. When someone says "Guantanamo" in the news today, they are referring to the prison. It used to be about the military base, but now it's about the prison. If someone were to mention the bay, the town, or the province, they would say the town of..., or Guantanamo province, or Guantanamo Bay (and even that last one wouldn't be clear without context.)

I reiterate that it may be pedantic, but when Cubans speak about Guantanamo (and they're part of "someone" too?), they mean one of the places I mentioned, unless they specify the base or the prison.

I wouldn't go that far. They're worth a read, but if you don't like The Fellowship, stop there. Now, The Silmarillion, that's a struggle even for Tolkien devotees.

No, it's part of Syria, but occupied by Israel. The fact that Israel has declared it part of its territory doesn't mean that it is, it just means Israel has zero respect for international law.

The Falkland Islands are also British and they're located near Argentina. Remember that Britain once ruled about 2/3rds of the world before giving independence to lots of countries. They still have lots of overseas territories

@hardster The point is, as you wrote yourself, that they are NEAR Argentina, not IN Argentina. So Gibraltar is next to Spain, not in it.

not to start an international incident, but it seems a bit wrong to criticize Israel for occupying territories and not also the UK. Argentina would have a different opinion of the occupation of the Falklands

It's the wizarding bank where the Potterverse residents keeps their knuts, sickles, and golden galleons. It is run by goblins who guard the vaults with charms, curses, and dragons.

Aragorn is the heir of Isildur and rightful claimant to the thrones of Arnor and Gondor. But when he is crowned his name is Elessar ... So, "Aragorn" never "ruled" Gondor. ;)
