Cristina Fernandez insisted in Angola on the South Atlantic as “an area of peace”

President Cristina Fernández highlighted the importance of keeping the South Atlantic region as ”an area of peace, free of militarization,” during her speech before the National Assembly of Angola on Friday.

The visiting leader also thanked Angola for “the permanent support for Argentina’s Malvinas sovereignty claim”

The leader also thanked the African country for its “permanent support for Argentina’s sovereign claim” regarding the Malvinas Islands dispute.

“We form part of the South Atlantic and we need to maintain it as an area of peace, and free of militarization” said Cristina Fernández.

Earlier on Friday the Argentine president attended a bilateral meeting with the her peer of Angola, José Eduardo Dos Santos, before speaking before the National Assembly at the Presidential Palace in Luanda.

During the meeting with the Angolan president, President Fernández de Kirchner highlighted the “magnificent opportunity” Argentina and Angola had in coming together on future business transactions, particularly in the face of the global financial crisis.

The last appointment on her schedule will be a visit to the trade fair where 400 Argentine businessmen will exhibit their products, accompanied by the Agricultural Ministry and the ANMAT and INCAA, with the aim of attracting investments and generating sales.

This is why you use your military to harrass Falkland Islands registered ships? If the South Atlantic is to be free of militarisation by definition, I take it that the Argentinian navy (such as it is) will be disbanded then, Christina?

It means demilitarisation by the British only, so that Argentina can take what it wants, without opposition.

Wiki:
José Eduardo dos Santos married three times and has six children from his wives, and one born out of wedlock.[16] He and his family have amassed a significant personal fortune. The actual value is unknown, but in recent years his daughter Isabel dos Santos, who manages the family fortune, has made multi-million dollar investments in Angola and in Portugal, in her name and that of her husband.[17]

I was just wondering on this militarisation issue. Of the two main occupants in this South West Atlantic Corner of the Atlantic Argentina and the Falklands, (I doubt Chile would even be interested in a pi$$ing contest) who has the Most Soldiers, the most Military Ships and the most Military Aircraft.... Surprise surprise its Argentina. OK so lets start demilitarising, let us know when you get down to our numbers and we can join in.... Till then.....

But Kretina is saving Argentina by selling 18 harvesters that haven't been made yet to Angola, and exchanging soy for petroleum and gas to heat her hotels in Calafate.

“This Friday Nobel Prizewinner for Literature Mario Vargas Llosa blames Peronism for the ”self-destruction“ that, in his judgement, is leading Argentina to underdevelopment, impoverishment and populism, and compared its trajectory to that which put Aldolf Hitler in power in Germany.”
(El premio Nobel de Literatura Mario Vargas Llosa culpó este viernes al peronismo de la “autodestrucción” que, a su juicio, está llevado a Argentina al subdesarrollo, el empobrecimiento y el populismo y comparó su trayectoria con la que llevó al poder en Alemania a Adolf Hitler.)

This is a question; Is Mario Vargas Llosa the famous Latin writer who said that one of Latin Americas biggest problems is that it is 'too much in love with blood and death'? From Mexico in the north with its drug gang deaths to Brazil with its war of the favelas through Columbia down to Argentina there seems to be a greater tendency than elsewhere in the western Christian world to resort to extreme violence.Is it just a 'growing up 'phase which Europe thankfully seems to have grown out of or is it something more long term ?
Anybody know the answer to the Mario Vargas question please post it as I have not been able to find it myself.

@12 Lord Ton

I think this may be a question of 'the biter being bitten' or 'two can play at this game' .What did Ms Castro expect if she went to the home of tolerant free speech (the LSE ) and started spouting her prehistoric Peronist rubbish to the British home crowd. People in Argentina might be brainwashed enough to listen quietly and accept it but nobody in Britain believes a word and definitely not these free thinking students who pointed out a few of Argentina,s
imperfections which seemed to have upset the lady.I hope the instigator was William Hague but I do not think the Foreign Office is creative enough for that.

@20 Falklandlad & Lord Ton
Just read the article. Aside from the obvious ploy of trying to ratchet up S Amercican tensions over so called militarisation of the area, her remarks on self determination were incredulous. Saying you support something in general, is basically saying you do not in fact support it, after all they are talking of one the fundamental principles of the UN. Then to go on and say you support Self determination for some but not for others, is well, frankly laughable. Keep her in the UK, she is doing an absolute fantastic job at providing the very reason why the Falklands will always remain as it choses.

@ 21 Agreed, reality check. This ongoing nonsense from CFK and her closest chums is absolutely priceless PR for the Falklands. Post 1982 there was light hearted discussion that Galterie was the Falklands politcal saviour, and a statue in his honour on Stanley waterfront would have been a fitting thank you for promoting the Falklands into the 21st Century and on stage it could only have dreamed of before 1982. CKF would be a close runner up nowadays, as the Falklands unpaid PR guru!

Think you'll find that it does exist, as does every other ship that Rufus mentioned. When Argentina gets rid of all of their ships except for two, we'll remove HMS Dauntless and HMS Clyde while Argentina removes its final two craft. Oh, and Argentina should disband both its Army and Air Force, which while old and rubbish, are still quite large. If Argentina does that, we'll remove the garrison on the Falklands. Then the south atlantic will be completely demilitarised. Until that happens, the small garrison on the Falklands will remain, as history has shown on two occasions (1832 and 1982) that Argentina cannot be trusted not to invade sovereign British territory. Oh, and by the way, stop worshipping a Botox queen, she's not good looking and she's a terrible leader for her country.

Argentina only hates the fact the UK could very easily flex its military might on the bully that is Argentina trying to intimidate the peaceful people of the Falkland Islands.

You know without the power of the UK stood behind the people of the Falkland Island's would be in the hands of the aggressor that is Argentina.

It's so pathetic that 1; the people of the Falkland Island's need the UK to defend them and 2; she cries wolf when she can't force her way on others and goes complaining to anyone who will listen.

Of course they are!!! The Argentines are you classic playground bully. If they see something they like, they take it by force. If you ask them nicely to return what wasn't theirs in the first place, you are met with silence. If you use force against them and win, you get nothing but sulks and spite until they do get their way.

It's not pathetic that the Falklanders need the UK to defend them, it's their right and we would do it anyway, it's just sad that we have to perminantly garrison the Islands because of the Argentine continued threats and intimidation towards a people that have done / are doing nothing more than trying to live their lives the best way they can.

Unfortunately, I think that the Argentines will never grow up, will never learn to live and let live. That part of their brain is missing so The Falkland Islanders will alway have to be on their guard. You are right, it is all very childish AND it is pathetic. Pathetic that the Argentine government has not learnt, will not learn and looks like it will never learn.

I have no doubt that the angolans will be told by the UK/US etc. not to bother with Rg Land and anyway the Angolans will know that RG Land is not a stable partner that can be relied upon.

Whether they will bite or not remains to be seen. Should be an interesting one to watch.

Did Castro really think she was going to influence people at the LSE? She really is like KFC, free publicity for the Falklnd Islands. She and most of the RG bloggers still think Self determination does not apply to the FI when even the decolonisation blurb indicates that Non -Governing territories are encouraged toward independence. Of course this is repeating the ovbious, but for the benefit of the RG's it needs repeating. The Angolan president is clearly desperate to think of trading with Urgentina, once KFC gets the oil, she will default on the food.

“What war”

The war we are going to have down there if UK continue down this path. Wars start like this wrong signals, wrong political gestures (like to send subs), refuse to talk about how to fix the problem, etc.

Then you have the war that none wanted and none can stopped because is too late.

And this is going to be a really big war because UK is pissing off not only Arg. otherwise the full SA. And Arg. militaries will not want to loose as is their great opportunity to gain again recognition from Arg. population.

And we are going to have bigger war memorials lets say to put there 5000/6000 and doesn’t matter who win or lost.

I wonder if Cristina is aware that in 1850 the Confederación Argentina and Britain subscribed to and ratified the Arana-Southern Treaty, the so called “Perfect Friendship Treaty”. This treaty says that neither of the two parties has any pending grievance against the other - the Falklands/Malvinas claim by Argentina is not mentioned. In view of this then surely the Argentine claim was automatically extinguished. Now we know why Argentina refuses to submit its claim to the International Court of Justice for resolution.

The reality is that Argentina and the Nazi Comedians are not top of the World popularity stakes. If you actually think that the rest of South America gives a t*ss about the Falkland Islands you are deluded.

The current bunch of erratic comedians governing Argentina couldn't even run a corner shop and are leading the country to international 'pariah status'. They are only using the 'Falkland Islands' to distract their population away from what is really happening to their country while they continue to fill their pockets.

@67 - Dany. Fix what problem?

As far as the British are concerned there is no problem. The Falklands will remain British for as long as the Islanders wish to, and no amount of hysterical screaming and foaming at the mouth by your President and her cronies is going to change that. The British forces in the South Atlantic are there as a deterrent, not as an attack force.

You must think very highly of the British Armed forces if you believe that a couple of ships, 1, 000 military personnel and 4 fighter aircraft can be that much of a threat to Argentina and the WHOLE of South America.

I don't mention the nuclear powered sub, as it may or may not be in the area. Oh, and a nuclear powered sub is not necessarily a nuclear armed sub ( your politicians don't seem to know the difference). Nor do they understand that if Britain truly wanted to make parts of Argentina glow in the dark we could do it from London, we don't need to be parked off shore to do it.

Not that Britain would ever use nuclear weapons it this way, which would be against the Laws of Armed Conflict, and against international law. International law, that's the thing that Argentina keeps ignoring.

As for your comments about the rest of South America, why would they risk their troops and assets to fight Argentina's wars? For what gain? They would gain nothing from entering a shooting match with the UK. Argentina's armed forces aren't up to it (which is why you're trying to involve others), and the only 2 countries with armed forces up to the task are Chile and Brazil, both of whom RG land has upset in the last few months.

You say that you are friends and brothers with them, and then you'll stab them in the back at the 1st opportunity.

Dany you've been listening too much to CFK. All of South America doesn't support you. Some may give verbal support (mainly to shut CFKs screeching up), but saying 'we support your claim' is an entire galaxy away to actually going to war with someone over it.

First of all, no one is planning any war with you. The UK is adopting a positive defence posture to counter any military threat from Argentina. The easiest and most effective way to protect the Islands, is to deploy the assets we have already deployed.

Secondly, you, Argentinia, have been appointed to speak on behalf of the rest of the S. American Countries, on matters of International relations and defence, have you? I do not recall reading or hearing of such a defence pact in any of the main stream media.

Thirdly, are the rest of the South American countries, really that concerned with ingratiating themselfs with Argentina? are they really that shallow?

Last of all, no collateral damage because, listen carefuly now, no war! and no negotiations until Argentina recognises the Right to Self Determination for the Falkland Islanders.

Today, we have the capacity to destroy the Argentinean military and still fight off any simultaneous attacks from Peru and Bolivia.

@67 DanyBerger (#) You are very naive my friend. Although there have been huge military cuts, the UK military is still far more updated and has a far superior power projection. ARG or even SA for that matter do not, and most likely will not go to war with the UK. That said even the British will do everything to prevent a war, and this apparent annoyance that SA has with the UK, has only really been spoken off by ARG. The others have chosen to back ARG, but who wouldnt in their situation. It is clear that they have no passion for the islands, and their main urge to back ARG is driven purely because they are neighbouring countries, that trade and obviously interact with ARG. That said, ARG current economic path, doesn't bode well for either them or SA, and if they continue with their protectionist ideals, they will soon sour their relations with these countries. Also factor in the US and China. War between the UK and SA ? Bad for America and bad for China. For obvious reasons the US to not want their biggest ally fighting with possible the biggest developing Continent and a haven for investors. They cant back either side for fear of hurting the other so they would try everything to stop war, even more that in the 80's. With London being the Financial capital of the world, and now a hub for Chinese finance and investment, the UK is both useful and essential to china. For similar reasons to the US, SA is also very important to the Chinese. And with the US being allies with the UK, china will be unlikely to actively or directly oppose Britain. When i say actively or direct i mean anything other than statements, or abover board military aid. Consider the international community and their feelings of aggression, and then understand why ARG cant openly start a war with the UK, without extreme criticism. The world is in a strong status quo, until the US either falls or is overtaken, its unlikely there will be any major conflicts.Hence Your School boy talk of war isnt clever

I am a Falkland Islander and I agree it would be better if our two countries were friends but you should know that the relationship between here and Argentina was not as you describe. Yes Falkland Islanders were able to attend medical facilities in Argentina but there was no choice in this for most people. Add to this the fact that Argentina controlled all air access but would not permit Falkland Islanders to travel on British passports. Argentina controlled the fuel supply and forced Falkland Islanders to accept a mitary garrison to 'protect' it. Argentine authorities opened Falklands mail. It was not a pleasant time for Falkland Islanders and we have no wish to return to that sort of relationship. If we ever have a working relationship with Argentina again, it is going to be one that we want.

@76 Ialbe.

Argentina has not been a good friend or neighbour of the Falkland Islanders since Peron invented the Argentine claims to the islands in the 1940s.

In 1982 your country invaded and tried to subjugate the people on the Falklands, and in the intervening years have done NOTHING to promote friendship or even be good neighbours.

You have it written into your constitution that the Falklands is Argentine territory (which it has NEVER been), your government has tried to starve the Islanders out, threatened them with invasion, with removing their rights as people, and have even talked of ethnically cleansing the islands! This is Argentine friendship?

If Argentina wants true friendship with the people of the Falklands then it has to EARN it. However, Argentina frequently breaks its word and can't be trusted. But if you truly want to mend fences with the islanders this is what Argentina must do.

Acknowledge that the people of the Falklands exist and that they have their own government, culture and way of life.
Remove the offending portion of the constitution regarding the Falklands.
Drop your erroneous and spurious claims to the Falklands, which hold no water historically, legally or morally. If you had any real claim you would have taken the dispute to the international court of justice, but you don't, so you won't.
Try asking, and stop DEMANDING things.
Apologise unreservedly for the invasion in 1982.
Stop trying to bring economic pressure to bear on the islands.
In short STOP threatening them.

If you do all these things, and keep your word, maybe in 30 or 40 years time a dialogue can be opened up between BA and the Falkland Islands Government.

However, pigs will fly before Argentina ever keeps its word or stops threatening the countries that border it, and the Falkland Islands.

A British navy officer told the Spanish vessel that it was violating international law and ordered it to leave British territorial waters immediately.

However if Argentina ever did decide to attack the Falklands you would discover that the UK has HMS Illustrious, an aircraft carrier. It doesn't carry fixed wing aircraft it's true, but it does carry helicopters. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of an Apache.

Argentina has no money (hence why your president is trying to trade your food for oil), you have no credit rating to speak of and no one would trust you to pay back any money that you borrowed, so you can't take out a loan.

Since Argentina's military has old weapons and equipment, little or no fuel, and not enough ammunition to train with, let alone start a war, I'm curious as to how you, Dany, are going to invade the islands, and then keep hold of them? Please enlighten us with your brilliant tactical mind - oh you can't because you are just full of hot air.

Then you talk about the islands paying for themselves. Well Argentina has huge amounts of natural resources already, but because of rampant corruption, are unable to exploit them, so you have no money, when you should be one of the wealthiest nations on earth.

What makes you think you could exploit the resources of the Falklands when you can't exploit your own country's?

Or is this the part where you convince the Brazilians and Chileans to fight and die for you, so you can later stab them in the back? Only the people of Brazil and Chile aren't as gullible as Argentinian people, and they don't trust your country as far as they could throw it.

You didn’t answer my previous question. Are you willing to fight and suffer the consequences or no?

Are you willing to die for your rocks and sheep yes or no?

Then will see, none is going to tell you how you will be invaded. You will have to find out by your self I guess.

And you didn’t answer my question about how much will cost to invade the island according with you.

So how do you know if Argentina cans afford that?

You are just talking BS because you have not idea, about anything so keep going assuming things is very funny.

@122 - Dany. I am an ex-soldier, and yes if needed I would fight to defend the Falklands against any aggressor, I haven't been out of the mob too long so a little refresher training is all I would require.

Regarding cost. There is no way to put an exact figure on it, but considering Argentina's current financial state, and the current state of your armed forces, it would certainly be in the billions of dollars, a rough estimate would be US$40 billion. That's just to upgrade your armed forces and munitions.

Argentina hasn't got billions of dollars, especially to squander on an invasion that is unlikely to succeed. Not BS, the truth, something I know you don't hear very often in Argentina.

Your armed forces are decades behind the UK in equipment and is untested in battle, and the UK has a very experienced war fighting army, which is well equipped and trained with the most modern weapon systems around.

So how would you invade Dany? By air? Not good as the Typhoons and HMS Daring could destroy your whole airforce between them. By sea? Not good either, because HMS Daring, the Typhoons and the submarine could take out any of your ships. Both air and sea? Well there's still that gauntlet to run, so the odds don't look too good. And if by some miracle your troops landed, they would then have to fight land based troops, which could be reinforced within 24hrs from the UK.

The last time your navy messed with an RN submarine, all it took was the sinking of one ship, and your navy ran back to port and stayed there. That was in 1982, and your armed forces were in better condition then than they are now. So what do you think the odds are on you succeeding now?

It would take 20-30 years of solid investment in your armed forces to bring them up to scratch. By that time Britain will have 2 new super carriers, with all the aircraft that go with them, and Argentina will still be playing catch up.

Dany, your talk of invading the Falklands is just a pipe dream.

Let everyone know, the people of argentina want friendship! Everyone knows that argentina and britain where friends! Our private schools are equal to dose of britain! We admire it! When argentina was a world power, and the elite of bsas ruled we were friends with rhe uk, but then peron came and ruined it all! Now cristina is in power because she payed poor people and ilegal inmigrants to vote for her! She and all her governmentare corrupt! Only the poor and uneducated (which are in that state because of peron and her) the middle and uper class people hate her but she perpetuated herself innpower! Argentineans are smart, capable people, we had a great nation but peronism destroyed it an she is finishing the job for her own personal wealph.

Britain provides protection to Falklands, the SGSSI and British Antarctic Territories, and while this costs a fair bit, its not very expensive and there is no doubt that voters support the policy. But CFK has promised no military option in her quest to take back Falklands, so just what leverage really does she have over Britain and the Falklands, if she is promising to close the one option that has some costs to Britain? “Peacefully”, CFK expects to usurp resources from the Falklands Sea/Scotia Sea (oil, fish, cruise ships), by turning the legal crank using belligerent commercial thuggery that if successful, would crush several vital legs of Falklands development as a sustainable, self-determinant community. Hopefully, Britain can mount the kind of defence that complements HMS Talent with a “hunter-killer” economic “Talent” that thwarts her wicked goals.

So better you talk about something you really know, let’s say nothing.

You invaded the Falklands and were scared of a force of 40 Royal Marines - fair play they are better than most NATO countries special forces.

The Army and the Marines are battled hardened and have damaged enemies your country can only dream in your worst nightmares.

@127 - Dany. Your posts get even funnier, and you continue to show your complete ignorance regarding military matters.

I put forward reasonable posts regarding Argentina's ability to invade the Falklands, and since you are out of your depth you respond in a very childish manner. You actually make CFK appear like a reasonable person.

You ask how we are planning to fight back without any aircraft carriers. Well, Dany, you have to reach and then successfully invade 1st, which as I have said in previous posts, is highly improbable given the current state of your armed forces. You say don't mention the 4 typhoons or you'll die laughing - we could only hope. I'm sure Argentina's armed forces are glad you are not President, as you would bravely send them all to their deaths, and fight to the last drop of their blood.

You didn't answer how you plan to invade, and instead gave an infantile response. Tut, tut, Dany. Surely with your amazing tactical brain you could plan how Argentina could do this?

Also how are planning on financing this invasion? Because of successive governments distrust of your armed forces since the junta, they have been starved of resources. Their equipment is old, and U/S. Yoou can barely afford fuel to allow a couple of ships out of port, let alone the whole fleet (some of which can't sail as they badly need servicing and replacement components). You air assets aren't much better off.

It costs US$ 95,000 for one javelin missile. This is a handheld and fired weapons system (bit like a bazooka, but much cooler, amour piercing). And this is one of the cheaper types of missile. So, just how do you plan to pay for new ships, aircraft, weapons systems etc...? Remember that retrofitting or even 'buying off the shelf' is costly and takes time - hence the 20-30 years time frame to get your forces up to scratch.

So I don't think that the Falkland Islanders have much to worry about. Argentina would worry in you were in charge.

Don't worry LEPRecon, arguing with danny is like arguing with a 4 year old.

He simply denies reality when its not in Argentina's favour.

Your 40bn estimate is reasonable although arguably not enough since the UK is at least 30 years ahead in military terms over Argentina and in the past 30 years has spent all of the time advancing its technology and forces.

In Argentina's current state quite clearly to any sane person the UK forces would easily be able to destroy the Argentine forces.

Not even CFK is mad enough to start a conflict with the vastly superior UK forces.

As i have never talked about apaches and that was the first time, that on merco press i have ever mentions the phrase 'power projection', your comments are ignorant and stupid. And to make you appear even more infantile you obviously dont even understand the phrase, or any of my post. Your entire comment was drivel, unless you can quote any post that i have mentioned these phrases over than on this argument ? That is a challenge. Below is what is a link to what is the meaning , to quote someone, as i dont think youve grasped the concept.

dictionary.reference.com/browse/quote

You see in an argument, when someone states some well structured points, the idea is to counter them, not just to state some stupid and irrelevant drivel .

So if you think that for one second you are able to construct some sort of relevant and understandable counter argument be my guest. If you cant counter post (77) , which i do not doubt, then i presume you will come out with the same school boy antics.

As for would i fight for the islanders ? yes i would. Our infrastructure destroyed ? Well i cant expect you to understand, but the Argentine air force is outdated. You would not get past the 4 typhoons on the islands. And by the time you tries, there would be a reaction force to reinforce the islands. And finally it is the Argentines who are creating a diplomatic rift, not the UK.

Please if you consider yourself a semi-sentient and intelligent being, address my post 77, and find these mysterious posts of mine where i mention power projection before today and apaches.

The evidence of that is below:
Post by # 77 THOR94 May 20th, 2012 - 03:32 pm

“Although there have been huge military cuts, the UK military is still far more updated and has a far superior power projection”

Can you see “Power Projection” in the end of your sentence?

“obviously dont even understand the phrase, or any of my post”

The apache was as references to tell you to don’t start again with that, anticipating your probably stupid comment like “LEPRecon” had made see his comment about Apaches.

I also can tell you that your have bad grammar and poor spelling in your comments. For someone claiming to be British.

@ 135 MurkyThink (#) but the fact is it would be very unlikely for the Argentines to capture the islands with what they have at the moment.

And also the last war lasted little more than 2 months, and back then the Argentine forces were more evenly matched with the UK. Now however there is a larger gap, so the suggestion of a war possibly going on for up to or longer than 6 months is not likely.

Again obviously meaning, that i have already used the phrase. And i said 'quote any post that i have mentioned these phrases over than on this argument ?'
I asked you to quote me the time that i mentioned the phrase other than post 77, 'this argument', in reference to the supposed time that i have previously mentioned this phrase. So i ask again, what other time have i used this phrase ? It really isnt hard.
As for the word 'apache', it is impossible to anticipate someone doing something again, if they have not done something in the first place. It is logical contradiction.
Also referencing the 'bad grammar ' and 'one sentence paragraphs', there are a few things you should note.

1) This is the internet and we are writing in a comment box. It does not warrant perfectly edited writing nor essay styled and structured comments. It is for, as the name suggests 'Comments'. The definition is below, to explain that a comment can be described a brief note of thought
www.thefreedictionary.com/comment

2) Definition of a a paragraph, if i actually chose to write in well structured paragraphs, does not state it has to consist of more than one sentence, just that it portrays one thought or point.An lower educated person may feel it must contain more than one setnacne but that is not stricly true.
dictionary.reference.com/browse/paragraph

3) I have never been very good at spelling, but have not found that it holds be back from writing good pieces, or expressing my opinion. for all you know i could be dyslexic, and anyone who is, can still be extremely clever.Albert Einstein for instance. dyslexia.learninginfo.org/famous-people.htm

You obviously follow Argentine politics quite closely, but it is also obvious that you have never lived in South America. Democracy is not perfect and especially in SAmerica. It is ultimately the right solution, but you need to get there first.

What I am getting at is that democracy can be dangerously exploited in an immature society. I think that is what Ialbe is implying in post 125. S/he is not saying that they poor shouldn’t vote. S/he is saying that the poor have been manipulated and that is to the detriment of the country.

Remember, you are sitting in a country that has universities that are 1000+ years old. Crick and Watson discovered DNA before the first colour TV arrived in Chile. You can’t project your understanding of how things work on to a very different society.

I think it is a shame that in post 125 you have genuine first hand opinion of how peronism and CFK has ruined a country and you just dismiss it because it doesn’t fit with your vision of how things are.

Come over to SAmerica some time. I will show you around. I can take you to some protests so you can experience tear gas and water cannon.

Poor Danny Berger-he laughs at Typhoons, but I am guessing he isn't an Argentine Air Force pilot, who might not find the prospect of fighting against one very pleasant. Argentina invaded the Falklands in 1982 with 10,000 troops vs 80 Royal Marines. Just over two months later they lost. There are now actually substantial forces on the Islands, and unless Argentina can put Mount Pleasant out of action in two days, there will be a lot more than 4 aircraft and the present troop levels.

1-Is my fault that your intellectual level is so low to understand?

Well read carefully my post again, follow in reply of what was, look for who is Biondini (RoadMap Right extreme wing) like many countryside poster here claiming to be Argentines.

And then maybe just may be you would understand what I wanted to say.

2-You want to talk to me about war and strategy (no problem) but you have not idea about your ETP AIS is made of.
You have no idea what military weapons ARG produces to shoot your @ss and repeat like monkey political statement copy past from Maggie speech?

So what can we talk about?
Propaganda that you read on The Sun?

3-“You have yet to give any kind of coherant response”

I don’t have to give you a damn sh@t about anything.

4-“Dany, you're really embarrassing yourself now”

The only one that are embarrassing your self is people like you what think that 4 TP will be enough to survive and invasion.

@THOR94

You are starting to sound like ChristRambo may be your brother?

I really wouldn't think Danny is payed by the Argentine state, after all he's called for Cristina to be replaced by an obscure right wing party and his line of war is not her line

@162 - Hey Dany. Still spouting your usual drivel I see.

I especially like the bit about the 4 Typhoons. Very funny as you show once again your ignorance, but you also seem to have missed some things out.

4 Typhoons - which are years ahead of any airframe argentina has and could easily take out your fighters, or bomb your surface vessels.
1 kick-ass type 45 destroyer - the MOST advanced military surface vessel in the world, which could destroy Agentina's entire airforce with one salvo, plus engage your surface vessels, from outside their current weapons range.
1 submarine which may or may not be in the area (you'll never be sure). Argentina's navy won't come out to play if they suspect there is a sub anywhere near them.

I suspect that CFK has already broached the possibility of invading the Falklands with her joint chiefs. No doubt, after they picked themselves up off the floor after laughing their asses off, they told no they couldn't because they haven't got the resources. Besides CFK doesn't really want the Falklands, 'cos if she did get them who would she have left to blame all her failures on?

Your government, Dany, has starved your armed forces because your armed forces are more of a threat to YOU, the Argentine people, than they are to Britain or the Falkland Islands.

Never mind Dany, you have those long winter months to look forwards to, without food, heating or power. Oh, you'll have plenty of micro chips to eat, but no way of cooking them. :op
