    @1. On the contrary, the British people don't want another war. However, it is important to let argieland know that Britain will do whatever is necessary. We have no time for the “accommodation” with argieland that Corbyn is so keen on. And, in the light of that, it is also important to talk about Britain's 21st century military capabilities. A glance over the current equipment of the argie air force and navy make it clear that current talk on their part of “peaceful, diplomatic measures” is only because argieland can do nothing else. Britain, on the other hand, is an up to date military power with capabilities far beyond what was available in 1982.

    And Britain remains committed to the freedom and self determination of the Falkland Islanders. Despite leftie appeasing Labour.
