    Saving it for an RAF Museums ticket to see your RG Air Force are we?Still wireles with those old aircraft,the support of USA,NATO,CABADA,New Zealand,Australia,Chile,we gave you hell...Very little artillery,90% untrained conscripts,...brits= Total failure.

    ..... who were so scared that they released their missiles too early, resulting in the Exocets failing to explode !

    Thought I'd help you out there SiEster as you'd obviously run out of words. What you fail to mention is that your forces were 400 km from home .... our lines of supply were rather more extended.

    Hell? Unlikely!

    Enough to send you to the bottom of the Sea.Only 5 Exocet,the Argentines have to figure out how to make it work...Really the brits suck
    Really the brits are useless.If the Americans tell the brits to sit,they sit,Stan-up..they do that......
    I prefer the Argentine way,a lot prouder....

    Until they lick the boots of every Islander, and apologise for breathing, and mean it, they will never be trusted, they would all sell their own mother for paco, and live with their hands dipping in each others pockets, and tell the World that cock and bull story 'claim' as if their lives depended on it. One day they will all grow up.

    And how many buildings can they take out in London?

    And how many cruise missile do you have?

    A cruise missile is a guided missile that carries an explosive payload and is propelled, usually by a jet engine, towards a land-based or sea-based target.

    Didn't think Andres would have the gall to post again after his unmasking.
    At least you would think he would change his nom de plume.
    So he's stupid as well as obnoxious

    If it is, I see despite saying Mercopress was a conspiracy run by Brits as far back as September he still crawls back like the rancid turd in the toilet you keep flushing, but always comes back weeks later....
