Argentina has launched a naval campaign to isolate the Falkland Islands that has seen it detain Spanish fishing vessels on suspicion of breaking the country’s “blockade” of the seas around the British territories.

Going to war for the British again eh busted?

How did the last Falklands War go? Sounds like the Argentinians are going to end up with that territory either way.

The queen's all washed up.. the British Empire collapsed in 1939.

War is a biological necessity of the first importance, a regulative element in the life of mankind which cannot be dispensed with, since without it an unhealthy development will follow, which excludes every advancement of the race, and therefore all real civilization.-Friedrich von Bernhardi

What can be said for a man who would allow his home to be invaded by strangers who demanded they be fed, clothed, housed and granted the rights of the first-born? What can be said for a ruling elite that permits this to be done to the nation, and who celebrate it as a milestone of moral progress?-Pat Buchanan

The Falklands War started on Friday, 2 April 1982, with the Argentine invasion and occupation of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. Britain launched a naval task force to engage the Argentine Navy and Argentine Air Force, and retake the islands by amphibious assault. The conflict ended with the Argentine surrender on 14 June 1982, and the islands remained under British control. The war lasted 74 days

Now what the Brits do is up to them. If they want to give them up or not but they pretty much asserted control over the island.

From the same article

Quote:
Although some have been cleared, a substantial number of minefields still exist in the islands, such as this one at Port William on East Falkland.


Bummer Eh

Argentina's version of Cuba. Either the queen should put tactical nukes on the islands Soviet Union style, or give it up entirely. I don't see how these islands benefit England.

Don't you know about the oil?



Quote:
tests showed it to be a commercially viable find,[108] an appraisal project was launched [109] and on 14th September 2011 Rockhopper Exploration announced plans are under way for oil production to commence in 2016, through the use of Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) technology.[110]
