    No doubt Argentina will be sending some Pampers and a few Pucaras to help their Syrian buddies fight ISIS to thank them for their support of the Malvinas Myth. I believe Argentina has a few Super Etendards still flying , the cartoon version with the 9 year old kid squeezed into the back should be successful.
    I don't know how they are going to get to Syria but that isn't my problem.

    Britain will be in EU forever and never be allowed to leave, warns top Euro chief Juncker
    THE European Union's top bureaucrat has been accused of “insufferable arrogance” after he vowed “Brexit will not happen” while he remains in office.
    Last night declared Britain would not leave the 28-member bloc, despite an upcoming referendum on the UK's membership of the EU due before the end of 2017.

    The British government will do as we tell it, and do everything to make sure they stay.
    David will not scrap the ECHR laws, his demands are childish and weak,
    The Chancellor is believed to be preparing a Treasury document to assess the benefits of the UK's EU membership, as well as the costs of Britain keeping its unreformed ties with Brussels
    And 16 year olds will vote to stay,
    You riff raff brits will do as you are told…so they say..
    http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/620636/European-Commission-Jean-Claude-Juncker-EU-Brexit-will-not-happen

    Nigel Farage said the president had shown “”insufferable arrogance”
    David Cameron’s own party MPs have told him he is wrong,
    The 120-member Conservatives for Britain group - which includes senior ministers, peers, MPs and MEPs - will meet in Westminster to discuss a formal proposal for the UK to cut its ties with Brussels.

    .France proposes, yet when Britain tries to propose anything, nothing ever happens,
    perhaps the top table is higher than us.

    support Frances efforts by all means,
    destroy isis but lets not go over the top here,
    Europe is slowly shutting down, is this not just what ISIS wants.
    just saying like.

    “Europe is slowly shutting down, is this not just what ISIS wants”.

    The EU project would die anyway, ISIS is just helping it along that road. The people of Europe have had enough, just look at the rise of the far right political groups in Europe.

    All of this was foreseen by Nigel Farage / UKIP but AGAIN, he was labeled as a crack pot and a nutter. You deny the people a voice and a way to express their wishes and eventually you will get an explosion.

    It sort of does not matter if we leave or if we stay. Marine Le-Penn will win next years French elections and when that happens, France WILL be leaving the EU. The Borders will close, the fences will go up and the EU will disintegrate before our very eyes.

    There will only be 1 referendum anyway. “Dave” said that there will be no re-run and we will abide by the winning decision.

    You trust what “Dave” says don't you?

    You may well be correct,

    I don't trust our prime minister one tiny bit,
    a man who tries to bend the rules , cooks the books and tries everything he can to manipulate the referendum in favour of the EU ,is to me,
    totally anti British,

    rightly or wrongly, if the people want out,
    then he should back this and leave,
    trying to change at the last moment, when it refuses to change for the last 50 years is showing his brainwashing by a higher authority,
    his masters.

    just my humble opinion.

    You remind me of Brick, the hopelessly stupid weatherman in the Ron Burgundy movie.

    @6. I pity you. Do you think the Prime Minister should be a puppet? You just have a problem with whose puppet he should be? Let's suppose he has a mind of his own. Let's suppose that he honestly believes that the UK is better off in the EU. You don't and neither do I. Is he not allowed an view? Let's go back 70-odd years. In 1940, Churchill was still unpopular among many Conservatives and the Establishment, who opposed his replacing Chamberlain; the former prime minister remained party leader until dying in November. Churchill probably could not have won a majority in any of the political parties in the House of Commons, and the House of Lords was completely silent when it learned of his appointment. Got any idea who would have made a better war leader? I'm not saying that Cameron is right, but shouldn't he get to lead the country where he thinks is right? I've spent 25 years asking what ordinary British people get out of the EU. Got any answers?

    Dear Argies

    The implementation of the UKs new aircraft carriers, makes Britain, after USA, the most powerful global power.

    Fancy a fight?

    I know of plenty of career politicians who could answer that one for you but would you trust their answers?

    I wouldn't

    You see, that is the problem with the “Pro-EU” camp. They know all the answers, it's just that the questions confuse them..........

    Britain to purchase 138 F-35’s

    not bad for a tiny island….

    10 Conqueror (
    Do you think the Prime Minister should be a puppet?
    [no]

    You just have a problem with whose puppet he should be?
    Lol
    We both know Germany’s Angela Merkel fills that one
    So they say,
    Yes he has a mind of his own, and you are right both of us do not agree with him, but he does have his own mind mmmm



    Churchill,
    Who would have been a better leader?

    To be honest, I was not born till 16 years after the war,
    But by what I have read, he was the best leader we could have had,
    And was probably very disappointed when he was voted out after the war, but got back in later. If im correct.

    I'm not saying that Cameron is right, but shouldn't he get to lead the country where he thinks is right?

    Yes-I agree with you, and he is better than then fool corbyn.

    I've spent 25 years asking what ordinary British people get out of the EU. Got any answers?

    All I can do is quote this,

    There is nothing, but nothing that the EU can do or give the British people that our own government can’t,

    And if our own government, can’t or won’t give it to us,
    Then there is something very wrong with our government,

    Thanks.
    Very interesting questions, hope the answer’s were ok.

    “I've spent 25 years asking what ordinary British people get out of the EU. Got any answers?”

    Sorry it's taken me so long ( and a 2nd go ) to come up with the answer. As a preface to this, I need not point out to both of you that we ( The UK ) had the biggest Empire the world has ever seen and so “what do ordinary British people get out of the EU”.

    The EU teaches us, each and every one of us, that we are better off out of it. We can do and have done, so much better by ourselves than to be chained to that nest of vipers.

    I just thought of that, I am really feeling quite pleased with myself.

    Just wish it didn't take me so long to figure it out.

    we probably agree with you.

    Eu is bad.
    Britain is better.
    that sounds nice.

    An indispensable measure against killer-terrorists would simply need to be the death penalty (carried out through the use of an effective instrument like the guillotine or the garrote vil.)
    Blah blah resolutions are a waste of time, and terrorists shall continue thriving.
