South Atlantic Sabre Rattling ... again

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

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


    And de Kirchner would seem to be posturing ...

    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.
  3. And he won`t lose an iota of sleep about it...unless it loses votes.

  5. 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.
  6. 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!

    All together la la...."When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn "?
  8. Or we could borrow that nice shiney new carrier from the Chinese they seem so proud about????????
  9. 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
