Britain No Falklands
February 8, 2012 by staff
Britain No Falklands, A rising security dilemma in the South Atlantic sees Argentine politics pitted against the British military as Falkland Islanders feel the effect economically. Britain’s defence of the Falkland Islands is significantly better now than it was at the time of the Falklands war.
The thinking is that even if the Argentinians tried to retake them they would not militarily be capable of the task.
Dozens of minefields from 1982 remain on the Falkland Islands
However, if the Argentinians did manage to take the main airfield then there would be no way back for Britain.
All this may or may not be academic – Falkland Islanders feel the war that is currently being fought is economic.
They are under the squeeze – with Argentina seeking to leave them feeling isolated.
Someanlysts believe Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez Kirchner has ‘set her heart’ on winning back the islands she calls the Malvinas.
