How exactly do you expect them to deal with Argentina?
Where do you live?
I wouldn't get to court up in that mis-info thats utter rubbish, that oil should pay back some debt at least, and the UK still has AAA credit
ratings, which country is not in debt right now tho? you think argentina can faulk out for one but we can't where do you find your logic???
While we are on the subject of oil...
News just in, they found 7 new oil fields could be up to 350 billion barrels of black gold discoverd on the coast of dorset, the biggest on shore oil
discovery since 1972 (in the UK) to add to the 60 billion barrels.
And back on to why they won't push there boats out to sea,
To be honest if the argy's are thinking about doing anything, then really, now is the time to do so, before the new Queen Elizabeth class aircraft
carriers are built in a few years time, work has already begun on the construction,
Oh And!!! The Astute class currently doing sea trials
The Astute class will progressively replace the Swiftsure and Trafalgar classes from 2011.
Displacing 7,400 tonnes and measuring 97 metres from bow to propulsor, Astute is significantly larger than the Swiftsure and Trafalgar class
submarines that she will replace but requires fewer crew to operate her due to the advanced technology and automated systems on board.
When she becomes operational on completion of Sea Trials she will be capable of circumnavigate the globe without surfacing and with the advance of
nuclear technology she will never need refuelling.
Astute is designed to fulfil a range of key strategic and tactical roles including anti-ship and anti-submarine operations, surveillance and
intelligence gathering and support for land forces.
"Astute will be a quantum leap in capability from the Trafalgar class and all involved can be justifiably proud”.
Nothing will happen we can all hope!
