    what is of further amusement is that the republic of Ireland or France don't seem to find these activities even remotely intimidating unlike Argentina which screams in hysterical terror whenever British soldiers do anything in the Falklands and begs the UN (impotently as always) to make them go away

    though given Argentina was barely able to defeat 80 marines with a thousand men when it invaded, and had 15000 men surrender to less than 5000 men when britain came back, its little wonder they are so damn scared of real soldiers.

    @ 3 “what is of further amusement is that the republic of Ireland or France don't seem to find these activities even remotely intimidating ” that's simple, it's because Ireland and France are European countries, and they are defunct countries, and with nothing to lose with nothing to offer, no resources, no money, NOTHING, what would the UK want from Ireland or France? lol NOTHING, but this is South America, not Europe. Do you understand now?

    The French certainly wouldn't complain about Bulwark. They had 130 men from their 2nd Marine Infantry Regiment embarked on her during the bigger (international) wargame that was held in (and off of) Scotland last month.
