Right time to kick up a fuss. British forces stretched beyond capacity and our navy a shadow of its former self.

The argies know we are over stretched in Iraq and Afgahnistan. Our Navy is not big enough to cope with mounting an operation to send troops back to retake the Falklands,plus we have no credible naval air defence against their nice new French mirage's and the RAF kindly built a maasive new runway which can take any aircraft. Once invaded the Falklands would never be retaken.

Well if they need the oil to power their central heating, why dont we offer to help, couple of'bombers' off the coast and then a couple of missiles in strategic places will soon 'warm them up'

They want to negotiate? Fine, we'll send them a T Boat to 'negotiate'…

1 warhead makes a point
2 Wipes them off the face of the planet - thus no more negotiations.

There's probably enough expertise in oceanic oil exploration in UK and amongst its allies not to worry that the Argentine does not want a share in the exploration and profits.

As soon as the Falklanders express a wish to become Argentinian, they should be allowed to do it, but I don't think that'll be anytime soon.

Mophead sorry but I think you are talking without thinking. We were a far more powerful force in 1982 and probably better equipped.
Its high time for the UK and its population to forget about the worlds policeman and to start looking after our own shores.
If the Falkland Islanders wish to be governed by Argentina fine, if not then they will be governed from the UK. Nothing is going to change this and I don't believe that the Argentinians will go to war again over the Falklands.
Far from a war to help Brown get re-elected its my opinion that any more conflicts would almost certainly see the Labour party ousted at the next elections.
 
As we used to say on Bombers;
Fill the first missile full of sweets and chocs for the people and when they are all out on the street picking them all up then launch your second one !!

Jesus. Listen to yourselves, will you?

So, on the 25th Anniversary of the beginning of the Falklands Conflict, Argentina (governed serially by a bunch of crooks who couldn't manage a good shit between them) issues a statement saying, 'no deal unless we talk about the sovereignty of the Falklands', regarding mineral wealth. Now I'd like to ask everyone here what you expect them to say? 'Sure, crack on Lofty. In a world facing a global energy crisis and with the middle east already fucked up by nefarious titheads masquerading as elected government officials, go ahead and suck out all the oil you want from our Continental Shelf. And while you're at it, drill along and drain all our assets off Patagonia, as well.' (because oil companies don't do that, do they?)

Let's transpose that scenario to Argentina installing colonials into the Orkneys, or even the Shetlands. Let's say they wish to exploit the oilfields in the North Sea. We'd be chuffed to **** about that, wouldn't we?

As much as they wish to be UK citizens, the kelpers will always be colonials in the eyes of the Argentines. They can be little else, and if history is unskewed and read correctly (and Argentina invokes certain agreements such as the Nootka Sound Convention) then they have as good a claim as any. Yet you guys are suggesting they are ready for war and we should park bombers off their coast. I ask you now. How many of you have ever been to Argentina? How many of you have talked to thier people? How many of you have actually seem their fleet, and their supposed 'readiness'? Or are we just being a tad Daily Mail, as usual, on these boards?

Cue another cringeworthy line of 'For Those I Peril', and 'England Expects ...'
