    They need a couple of submarines hiding secretly in the waters around the Falkland Islands ready for a sneaky strike.

    Soon Pirate Ship will go home with pirate population of las malvinas and colonial population of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

    Establish forward base for war vets and take over farms, then use military to enforce rule of law over Argentine national territory.

    but to use your navy to keep argentine pirate at bay is not needed,
    the royal navy can do just fine, thank you .

    @2 Sam

    I wouldn't be surprised if there was one or two loitering about. Although the knowledge that they're out there somewhere (and exactly where and for how long is never actually revealed, so they might be thousands of miles away, but might be parked just outside your main naval bases) is just as good.
