Thanks everyone for joining this chat and yes I feel proud to be a Brit too, The thing is so many people try to put us down with things we have
done in the past but they forget what us Brits have done for the world (list to big to post) without us the world would be very different today.
National pride is fine when people are going on about constitutions but when we show pride for wanting to defend people and their homes we get called
Oh and I wish Mike would come back and tell us who is going to join Argentina in invading the Falklands lol, I guess it was just a troll post.
So far 2 Argentines have commented on this thread and 50% of them seem intelligent and agree with most of us here the other had been shown facts which
were just false, so I think the ggod people would just say to that silly wench "No we are not going to try and fight the Brits again....Do you
remember we got are arses handed back to us last time?"
So please Mike come back and give us a giggle or come back to say you are sorry you got it wrong.
Just came back to check on this thread 27 pages
wow that's a few
Thanks for a quick summery to saves me reading another 14 pages
Common sense says they will not do anything but who knows? anything can happen, I'm glad to see the comments from the Argentinians and I too would
like to know more about who's gonna help the argies if they did invade.
I do remember some countries saying they would support them on the news before.... but that could mean anything
Stumason gave good details and facts about our military (Navy) and I too personally believe if it came to it we could take multiple South American
countries at once if not all of them. The combined effect of our air force and navy are deadly plus this time around we would not have to do "half
around the world" bombing runs to close an airfield down
The only chance they would have is a fast strike and occupation atm Argentina could not do that alone and If multiple countries were involved we'd
see the build-up or we'd lose the Falklands either way with the latter we will not be fighting alone as a nation once it kicks off. As you pointed
out earlier even if it was just an Argentinian invasion we would not be alone, France are obliged to help in any military conflicts and so is the UN,
imagine what would happen if an SA alliance tried taking us on
That's just my thoughts on the matter
again nice thread
