Eight times Manhattan island iceberg breaks off from Antarctic glacier
Anyone want a Martini???
They will probably be shouting and screaming in the UN that this further evidence that the UK is Militarizing the South Atlantic... This is not an Iceberg at all, It's a new UK Stealth aircraft carrier.....
Sham then, Argentina could not breakaway and float off ..lol
