    Still taking to long,
    Argentina should still be billed,

    UK will not bill Argentine for laying mines in Br soil- simply because then lots of countries in N Africa- and Far East could send bills to Britain for the clearance costs of all those mines laid in WW2 on their soil!

    So you are saying that the laying of thousands of mines by the Argentine forces during the Falklands War was a criminal act.
