Hindsight - Falklands -Peeble Island

#1
Hindsight is a wonderful thing and no disrespect to the task force who did it in real time but any views on weather it would have bee a good move in hindsight to have followed the SAS raid on Peeble Island up by taking it and :

a) establishing a forward base for the Harriers prior to the San Carlos landings , or

b) Letting the BBC World service know we were establishing a forward operating base there (as they would report it) but just installing Rapier , stingers etc and flying CAPS over it to try and draw the Argentine Airforce into a trap and write them down a bit.
