Falkland Islands Tension increase

Recommended Posts

In the Falklands in 1982 we had well-trained but relatively inexperienced troops who did a damned good job, against opponents well dug in and, in some cases, well trained and equipped - not all of the Argentinians were poorly trained conscripts.

 

The experience and combat effectiveness of today's British Army, as well as the Royal Marines and RAF Regt, is in quite a different league after 2 decades of experience in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I remember reading somewhere that the only democracy ever to declare war upon another democracy was The UK against Finland during WW2. I don't know how true it is, so I am happy to be corrected.

Why not. ?

I'm sick of the Argies, a few laser guided bombs down a few chimneys and it'd be all over.

Wow what a lovely thing to say. Perhaps we should just send over a few Plain clothed CID inspectors.
