Re: Falkland Islands: Tensions Rising

the Americans won't lift a finger to help look at the 1st war they didn't do much Reagan even said don't bother trying to take the islands back.
The relationship is only special when it suits the yanks.

With regards to the sylver vls that the 45s use the reload is only 1 missile a time not say all 8 in 1 go so there might have been a load shipped over just in case on a c17 on the replenishment run

Re: Falkland Islands: Tensions Rising

tbf, the US did supply us with the latest AIM-9Ls which took out most of the Argentinian planes, satellite recon intelligence, 12.5 million gallons of aircraft fuel, and updated the facilities at their Ascension Island base to enable the flow of supplies.

Ahhh... very 'special' then!

Seriously it'd be nice to know the truth behind such assistance and any 'quid pro quo'. It might not be as one-sided as we think but I expect it is sadly...

Britain is demanding that Argentina repays £45 million in loans that were used to pay for the invasion of the Falkland Islands.
The Department of Business is taking a tough line with the government in Buenos Aires as tensions flare around the 30th anniversary of the war.
The money was loaned to the Argentine junta in 1979 and was used to buy military equipment which was used to seize the South Atlantic outposts three years later.

That is what I call a long term loan
Anyway, it should stir things up a bit.

That's just quality

We lend them money, and sell them arms, for them to use to attack us.

I wonder how much interest there is to pay on that?

We have been doing that for centuries, infact IIRC it was German money from arms sales pre WWII that helped keep us in the war in the early days.
