    Since the French are taking over the British forces changes are coming.
    Now British must call the islands next to Argentina “Les îles Malouines” and also the British puppet governmet of those islands,“FIG”, will stand for “Federation Internationale de Gymnastique”, in order to get in shape all those overweighted whennies wasting time and money counting penguins.

    The French have territory in South America too, and were very helpful during the 1982 conflict as I recall .... they provided a lot of technical information on the exocets that they'd sold Argentina!

    Good that the Falkland Islands are so much in the press these days .... reminds the British people that they own them and that their boys did to keep them. Argentina's recent belligerence looks like a shot in the foot!!

    It is clear that arguments about an hypotetical Argentina action of war are false as a three-dollar paper.
    Just to watch who in UK benefits from that shouting and fear-spreading.

    either way the Argentineans will find it harder to harass the French than the British, as a matter of fact, they will find the French less polite and more stubborn than the British,

    “will find it harder to harass the French than the British”

    An exocet to the face.
