    Oh dear, never mind.

    It is Argentina who refuse to cooperate.

    There can be no “peace” while they maintain their baseless claim to the territories and reject the Islanders rights to self-determination enshrined in the UN charter and subsequent UN resolutions.

    This exercise/firing does not change the situation in any way, it simply reminds the Kurepi Planters that it is not so easy to steal land from well-armed Pirates.

    The UK strongly opposes that Argentina strongly oppose UK's strong opposition to Argentina's strong opposition to firing of missiles in the Falkland Island's waters - and the Argentine inflation is gallopping at 46% for year 2021, 3.9% for March alone, so the only thing the Argentine government can do is to oppose something.

    One or two can always go off in the wrong direction and land up in some Argentine back yard blowing up some Argentine peasants outside lavatory with the peasant in it.

    I can see it now The resulting explosion blew the Argentine peasant 50 feet away and into a manure pile. Neighbors rescued him and asked how that happened.

    “I dunno,” he replied, “it musta been something I et.”
