Oh noes the little dictator Hugo Chavez is telling us to give it back.
It was defended because of sovreignty last time. This time it's about oil as well.
Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner told the summit that Britain was carrying out a systematic violation of international law.
I am always wondering what the following really means:
Okay so which laws?
Why is it that when ever a nation or a group of people are not happy with a situation or action they always start to say "it's a violation of international law" .. Which law, yes I know international agreements are higher in the hierarchy then national ones but I just dont understand it in this situation.
thats not actually true of course. international law is meaningless. look at nukes in israel or the american boycott of cuba. Both are internationally illegal.
That might be accurate if we'd been the ones attacking the falklands....
It was much worse then.
The British Army are trained on tactics and more basics rather than tech.
I remember training with yanks and they all brought their little gas stoves out and we have hexi blocks and a little metal tray. I tel l you something though i'd rather do it with blocks than rely on a tank of gas which takes up more room etc
Sometimes more tech is a bad thing
Postings coming up soon, worth putting the Falklands down on the off chance they try something? Place ya bets ladies & gents!
my thoughts exactly
they go for us, we withdraw troops from afghan/iraq, usa has kittens
