Cameron has warned that he is ready to fight another war with Argentina to
prevent that country seizing the Falkland Islands.

I respect Brit folks, specially Brit ATSers, but what a big mouth Cameron has, talking about making war, only because he knows he has all the chances to win.
If he keeps his mouth closed and let Argentina do the first hostile move, he would have more folks supporting him.
This is what they would go to war for. Not for the people who live on the islands....
This week saw the announcement by Rockhopper Exploration, one of five British oil companies with operations in the Falklands, of continuing success in its exploration and appraisal programme of the Sea Lion discovery. This was the first confirmed oil discovery of the region, and the company now estimates the field to hold 325mmbbls of recoverable oil based on its mid estimate. Could it be that this remote area is starting to realise its much debated potential, estimated by the British Geological Society to hold billions of barrels of oil.
