    @Jolene. Where are “the Malvinas”? We don't “recognise” the name. just to keep you up to date with the real world, argie “claims” to the continental shelf were legally rejected. The Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands are, I believe, within the area that argieland “claimed”. In addition, those islands are British territory. That was decided in 1982. Moreover, the Falkland Islands are almost certainly on the verge of becoming very, very rich. So rich that, quite possibly, they will be able to afford to have British forces quadrupled. The islands are very useful for training by the British Army. The surrounding seas are very useful for training for the Royal Navy. They are also useful for the Royal Air Force which may explain why RAF aircraft now include the very latest transport/tanker as well as two heavy lift Chinook helicopters. You can probably look out for Notices to Mariners as British forces define bomb and missile ranges. The British garrison is considerably different to the 40 Royal Marines you thought you had to overcome with your underhanded attack in 1982. So you don't have a hope in hell of acquiring what you've been trying to steal for the last 100 years. The Islands have been, legally, ours since 1690. Long before your “country” was even thought of. Even by the “implanted population” of which you are a member.
