This is a question Family Feuds

Pooster tells us that a relative was once sent to the shops to buy an onion, while the rest of the family went on a daytrip while he was gone. Meanwhile, whole sections of our extended kin still haven't got over a wedding brawl fifteen years ago – tell us about families at war.

A guy
I met in Argentina told me about the story of his two uncles.

Uncle Fernando had a successful TV repair shop in Buenos Aires. Apparently a lovely man, if a bit fond of chasing women. Uncle Sebastian was not so lovely, being involved in rather right wing Argentine politics, and was also rather jealous of his brother's shop. He repeatedly tried to get in on the action, but Uncle Fernando wanted nothing to do with him.

All rumbling along at the level of minor family feud. Until March 26th 1976, when the military overthrew Isabellita Peron's government and started kidnapping, torturing and murdering anyone seen as leftwing or 'unargentine'.

Uncle Sebastian was involved with several extremist nationalist groups, he welcomed the coup wholeheartedly, with a passionate desire to destroy the Montonero and the Ejercito Revolutionario del Pueblo guerilla groups and their network of left-wing sympathisers. He's also strapped for cash and increasingly doesn't get on with Fernando.

So the fascist bastard denounces his brother as a Montonero sympathiser. Fernando disappeared into thin air. Over 30 years later they still have no idea what happened to him. No body, no admission of guilt. Nothing.

Sebastian took over his shop and dealt heavily with the military. He ran it all the way up to the economic crash of 2000/2001 in Argentina, when he lost his life savings and put a gun in his mouth. His family, who had totally disowned him since 1976, avoided the funeral.
