    Interesting. IAS was switched off and how would sailing closer to the Falklands help to avoid a storm? And, despite saying that Clyde wasn't involved, why did the Clyde have to sail out to head the Deseado off? The above statement is nothing more than a tissue of lies.

    Quite agree Falkland Lad- they say they advised UK Forces at MPA - normal sensible procedure in bad weather-ships need shelter. MPA can easily simply confirm it and then a 100% dead non issue.

    The vessel's track may been seen as suggesting otherwise.

    And what does international law say about the ownership of natural resources?

    Beware. President Macri has been utilizing a panoply of measures to make people think of other things than inflation.

    The notebooks case, searches in Cristina properties, immigrants, abortion law, supermarkets' looting by 'guerrillas' -- nothing is left aside.

    The Argentine Junta decided to occupy the Malvinas when the population started to rebel. Macri could attempt something similar when the economy hits rock bottom.

    Nothing like being prepared.

    @EM
    The Junta had an army, navy and an airforce. What does Macri have apart from debts? It just ain't happening.

    “Argentina' waters”

    Patrolled by the Royal Navy and RAF (i.e. from the UK) and Falkland Islands Government (i.e. from the Falkland Islands). So Falkland waters can't be Argentine, or your rustbuckets would be patrolling the seas there .It doesn't need a rocket scientist to work that out. Argentine Oxymoronic Logic Syndrome again.
