    The Latest Piece of Falklands Nonsense from Argentina!

    Let’s not mix politics with sport.....or maybe we will:

    My favourite part is the part where Fernando Zylberberg uses a war memorial to do his exercises.....nice touch!

    Warren, what a pratt that chap was, the only thing that he has done is to make sure our athletes beat him, by riling them up.:diablo:

    Does appear that the redoubtable Ms Kirchner is trying the Galtieri-esque technique of using the Falklands to distract the public from certain uncomfortable issues.

    I'm not quite certain how much the very strong anglo-centric imagery of the pub, red phone box etc is going to underscore their contention that its Argentine soil nor the fact that they had to sneak a sportsman and film crew on to the island, and shoot when no-one else was around, to get their task completed. Both would seem to highlight the fact that its not theirs and they hold no influence there.

    Quite a strange piece of work.

    Could always get a couple of Victors up to escort the Vulcan, shame we haven't got any Harriers left though.:diablo:
    Push enough pixels around and it'll look like an aeroplane profile.

    Maybe the Spanish will lend us a couple of Harriers for a flypast, then again maybe not.

    I read that using a memorial as a step up , didnt go down too well with war Vets in Argentina . They said their goverment should respect the dead of all wars & of both sides . This Argie woman boss should realise she isn't Margaret Thatcher !!

    And the bomb doors open to reveal the short, but sweet, message: "Falklands Forever, Malvinas Never".

    This might account for more than we think !

    "The Argentinians are basically Italians who speak Spanish and think that they are British" .

    It's rather like a small boy, who gets thoroughly smacked for misbehaving, so runs off, and, when he thinks he's far enough away, turns round and sticks out his tongue.

    Ironic isn't it, she makes big statements such as we are going to get the Malvinas back, then cries when we send the odd boat and future King down there to make sure she doesn't, because we are in escalating things by defending ourselves...

    I wonder if 'itler sent a stern note to the UK stating that just because he had annexed a few Countries and was eying up the rest of Europe, that it was bad form for the UK to send the Expeditionary force over as that was not on, and not in his plan at all.

    HMS Dauntless could destroy the entire Argentine air force in a morning !!

    What ever nuclear sub we have lurking down there could destroy the entire Argentine navy in a morning !!

    Said sub has probably enough nukes on board to destroy Argentina in a morning !!

    Yes I know this is a very silly idea to go with a very silly advert !!

    However female Presidents of dodgy countries should really know when to keep their Gobs shut !!( you could upset the Spanish over oil )

    Can't wait to see their swimming team video....

    What it needs is for a spoof video in reply - maybe have a Zylberberg-like figure being chased off the islands, into the sea, by pitchfork wielding locals.

    Or maybe him ending his run in a minefield..... KaBoom!!!
    Under my gruff exterior lies an even gruffer interior...

    NOW LETS FACE THE ACTUAL REALITY !! at the time of the falklands conflict 1982 the royal navy pilots rated the argentines pilots as A NO 1 so given that rating and all we have done is decimate our forces ( if we are honest it was only luck that won the falklands ) if we are realistic we are in a millitary very weak position and if challenged now there is a better than average chance of losing !!

    Errrrrr didnt Mrs T's administration pull HMS Endurance from the region. And I believe shortly before the conflict they were negotiating to sell two of the "through deck crusiers" to Australia and India ......... and thats for starters.

    But if you really want to see how a Conservative government cuts defense try Duncan Sandy's in 1957......

    Of course the current encumbant has'nt done so bad.

    Re 15 & 16

    There is the little matter of about 300 miles of rather turbulent ocean to cross one way or another, with your invasion forces.

    You won't have the element of surprise. Seaborne forces will have the element of attack submarines being nasty.

    Airborne forces will have to deal with the RAF and ground defences before attempting their 'three pointers' on Stanley airfield.

    Not a 'cat in hell's chance' for the Argies.

    Mrs Kirchner, treat yourself to a new handbag.

    We should refuse the Argentine Olympic team entry to the UK :diablo:

    (I'm only joking, I'm sure that would create much hostility towards the UK)

    There is one enormous difference between now and 1982

    In '82 Argentina occupied an undefended Falklands and the British had to re capture.

    There is now a strong British military presence so dspite the recent defemce cuts Britain is in a much stringer position to hold it.

    It might have been close then but you can't compare the current threat to the 1982 conflict simply because with the British already in position is is a completly different situation.

    And don't forget the 7 or 8 RAF pilots that were on exchange with the FAA, which S ward seems to over look.
