Second Falkland Islands War?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worl...parks-row.html


Will we have another "Empire Strikes Back"?








Last time the Argentinians got feisty with the British, they got their asses handed to them... badly. It would be best for them not to try their luck again.

LMAO.


Fucking with the Anglosphere is always a bad idea. Never has an Anglo dominated country ever lost a war with a Spanish speaking country.

Hell, even America has whipped both Spain and Mexico's asses.

I'll bet this time the British Navy won't be taking any Exocet missiles to the midships.

Seriously, the last war ended very badly for the Argentinians, I can't imagine them wanting to repeat that. But based on what is in that article they may be spoiling for a fight.

Looks like it's political pandering... I doubt they will do anything.

Hopefully their economy will tank again, so it'll be even cheaper to go vacation there. I foresee an asskicking like in 82

I wish we would recommission the USS Iowa to go down there and "clear" up the blockade.








Fun Fact: We keep the Iowa staffed and battle ready just in case we have to return it to service.

As bad as the British beat down the Argentinians before, now would make that look like a scrimmage.

Comment from the link:

Hmmm... I wonder who President Obama would side with?? Hmmm.... My bet is the USA sides with anti-imperialists like Fernandez, Lula de Silva, and Chavez. Argentina would not be alone. How do you like those cupcakes?
- Henry, CA, USA, 18/2/2010 3:44

What cupcakes, why is it always about food with Americans. The US didn't side with them last time, nothing has changed so why would they now. And if you had put a bit of thought into this, you would realise that the claim Argentina are trying to use to take the islands is itself an imperialist one, making your statement a little silly.

And where are these cupcakes, I'm hungry.

If it goes to war Britian will probably go and attack mainland Argentina and try to kill some of their leaders. They didn't do that last time.

True. The Falklands/Argentina is kind of their Desert Storm/Shock and Awe.

I have never actually seen that film, but from what I can tell it portrays Wallace as some poor everyman who unites the Scots. He was actually a noble... who won a single battle.

Edward III picked up where he left off though. Edward III was the best king of England IMO.

Sec. of State: Cunt, that's a great idea. I just so happened to be cunting around in this part of the world and didn't expect to cunt into you.
