Argentina elect Far Right President

  • The true evil would be sending young Argentinian males off to die in an unnecessary conflict over the Falklands and forcing the same group of fighters in Britain to die along with them.

  • It is true, though, that Argentina is stuffed. Mr Wing has an Argentinian colleague wo gives him the state of affairs and it's been bad for a long time.

    Beautiful country, fecked up by politics, as usual.

  • I wonder how our Argentine interloper viewed that win, he was as Barling as his new president. 🤣🤣🤷‍♂️

    “You know you’ve reached middle age when you’re cautioned to slow down by your doctor, instead of by the police.”

  • He has not, as yet, mentioned the Falklands.


    But if anyone is likely to just give the order to go an retake them, he would.

    Argentina doesn't have the means to retake the islands.

    We keep a squadron of typhoons on the Falklands, an offshore patrol boat is stationed there and the islands are replenished by various other planes and vessels. We used to send a destroyer to the islands, but the size of the navy is so tiny now, that's no longer possible. At least our patrol boat can protect the islands with its bows and arrows. X/

    Although there are only four typhoons, that's enough to take out the entire Argentinian air force, should it decide to attack. And of course, we can deploy other assets there if the argies looked like they were about to start something again. Our satellite surveillance is of a far greater magnitude than it was in the early 80s and will spot early signs of problems.

    Oh yes he has, read the link in my Tuesday 7.33pm post.

    “You know you’ve reached middle age when you’re cautioned to slow down by your doctor, instead of by the police.”

  • It's a go to statement for all Argentinian politicians though for most it's 'negotiations' they promise.

    Maybe if the native South Americans demanded their land back off the Hispanics they'd shut up about frivolous geographical justice?

    We didn't have any and it was because of a very high ranking officer in the Army that had a high ranking officer friend in the US that unofficially gave us access to some of their satellite data that gave us a huge advantage during the Falklands War. IIRC I think it was used for Special Forces to hit specific targets or possibly something to do with Airfields. There was documentary about it.

    My Sonar is picking up an Echo around here
