Please show us some proof that the U.K. Navy could do this, as far as I'm concerned based on what I've read from different sources I can assure you with "CONFIDENCE" the U.K. Navy wouldn't last 4 days.

They could probably take on the Argentinean navy and should win. The UK fleet of 90 ships would defeat them in surface action. The US Navy is the big boy.
Russia has quite a few old ships. 2 problems, they are old ships and they don't have the money for proper upkeep on them. You see the ships tied to piers in harbor. This doesn't make them seaworthy, it just means they haven't sank in harbor, yet.
Great article on Russia's navy and top personnel.

Sorry Putin, we’re all out of booster seats at the U.N. Security Counsel. Why don’t you go sit with the kiddies over at the World Hunger Table. I think there is a seat left open right next to the Somalian representative.

I would still place my money on the British Navy over the current Russian Navy. Do you not agree?

Maybe someone should take them seriously because even an ant, and I'm not saying they are that small, can be anoying. There is also about 50 to 70 million Ak-47s around the world today and these are just Russian made assault rifles. As for them being garbage, well there is an unfortunate deathcount of American Soldiers that would challenge that argument. Last time I checked, and it was this morning, Iraq is anything but safe to visit. Also I believe that Hugo Chavez is buying AK-47s and Sukhois aswell.
