    Oh dear, how sad, never mind. Have they tried building Fokker Triplanes?

    Always the same with you. You are worse than a broken record and it seems as you have nothing to do all day. Actually, I know you have nothing to do all day because I have read your repetitive comments in other forums. All this means is that they buy planes from someone else eventually. Argentina has way too many problems right now to worry about jets anyway. As a “Brit” you should know a bit about clownish buffoons running a country. Argentina is being run by crooks and the UK by an incompetent moron. Both countries need to do a better job electing their leaders.

    As I said before they don`t need Jet Fighters, The UK`s 4 Euro-Fighters will be sufficient to deter anybody attacking Argentina.
    You are Welcome.

    Why is there an arms embargo? Well: 1) Argentina has not apologized for the 1982 invasion. 2) Argentina has not paid anything for the war damages caused by the war. 3) There is no peace treaty between the UK and RA after the war. 4) Argentina has put its claim into the country's Constitution. 5) Argentina is “educating” (or indoctrinating) its population with the “Malvinas Cause” all the time (“Malvinas son Argentinas”-signs all the over place). Why should the UK sell weapons or components to a country which can not be trusted?
