South Atlantic Sabre Rattling ... again

It would seem that FI registered shipping is now banned from virtually the whole East coast of South America

BBC LINKY

And de Kirchner would seem to be posturing ...

Cristina Fernandez de Krichner (on BBC News) said:
I want to thank everyone for their immense solidarity with the Malvinas.

But you should know that when you are signing something on the Malvinas in favour of Argentina you are also doing it in your own defence.

Malvinas is not an Argentine cause, it is a global cause, because in the Malvinas they are taking our oil and fishing resources.

And when there is need for more resources, those who are strong are going to look for them wherever and however they can.

The FI's say they do have a contingency plan to deal with the shipping ban but are not making it public.

It will be interesting to watch how this develops, if at all.

Dave won't be the first PM with blood on their hands as a direct result of making ill advised cuts in RN blue water capability.
 
Couldn't have picked a better time really no carriers no harriers and hardly fcuk all escorts probably all piss and wind but hope it creates a little stomach acid for cnuty face Cameron and Clegg over xmas.
 
Of course we have the backing of our EU partners do we not in this matter. Or is it one of those Spanish speaking big boys club events.

I thought Dave had just told our "EU Partners" to shove it where the sun don't shine - or did I dream it? Cleggy the appeaser is doing his bit of course to drum up support for more UK money to bail them out but whether that will result in them helping us over the FI is very doubtful

Ah well!

Not well up on modern warfare but how can they invade with submarines in the area?,not by sea,not by air with Typhoons around to splash transports.
It's just the Latin temperament firing up ,tell them to try and reclaim the Islands and see what happens.
Last time was a surprise invasion,this time,even with a lot fewer ships due to the idiotic Government and MOD we can still see them off if we prevent them from landing in force.
Nice to see Millies opinion on the scare if we can,and Cleggs and Cammies.
This country is being led by idiots where Foreign Aid comes before the Defence of it's own people.IMO

A South American trading bloc has agreed to close its ports to ships flying the Falkland Islands flag. Mercosur, which includes Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, came to the decision at a summit in the Uruguayan capital, Montevideo...

Well, I suppose Protector doesn't fly the Falklands flag.
Portsmouth News 5 Jan 2012 said:
THE arrival of a Royal Navy ship on a routine visit to Uruguay has caused outrage in South America as tensions build ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War. HMS Protector’s presence in the port of Montevideo comes just days after Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay agreed a pact to close ports to Falklands vessels.

A photo of the Portsmouth-based ice patrol ship appeared on the front page of Uruguayan national newspaper El Observador on Tuesday with the headline ‘English boat in the port’. The article was critical of Uruguayan port authorities for allowing Protector to stop over ahead of going on to the Falklands this week.

It was the Uruguayan government – in an act of solidarity with Argentina – which proposed the move to close ports to ‘illegal’ Falklands-flagged vessels at a summit in Montevideo on December 21. But Uruguayan port authorities claim there was nothing to stop HMS Protector coming into Montevideo on December 30 because she sails under the Royal Navy’s White Ensign...
