    While it wasn't acceptable for the UK to take the fight into Argentina in 1982 and destroy their military capabilities and even weaken their national government enough to promote potential fragmentation....

    Chile would have no qualms and would be subjected to much less restraint or political pressure to withdraw.

    You may be correct,
    But CFK may have other ideas,

    She has promised this illusive victory,
    But what will happen, when this victory never comes.
    Just a thought.
