tommyjo , thats not what I meant by special agents , as in the special ops services of the military.
I meant subterfuge , as in turn the people of falklands against the british government over a period of time
make them call for independence and get rid of the army then invade!
I have never been to the falklands , not somewhere im planning on going , are there any nice beaches ?

It seems very complacent of Britain to rely on a defence that hinges on a few yards of runway.
The runway only needs disabling for a few hours.
I'd have thought a couple of commando mortar teams could achieve that.
So all Argentina has to do is get 20 men within a few miles of the runway undetected for a few minutes.
Very, very stupid scrapping the Harriers, very, very stupid scrapping the aircraft carriers.
It's almost like the UK government wants them to invade.
If the runway is ever disabled the 120 or so infantry on the island can't possibly hold on to a land mass the size of Wales
against the Argentinian Parachute Brigade.
I think a second invasion of the Falklands is an entirely viable military proposition.
