A spokesman for a leading Buenos Aires-based war vets' association, reigniting fears a new conflict is looming, vowed: 'If the Malvinas cannot be recovered peacefully we will return as soldiers.

The paper calls this a "chilling message." "Ridiculous" is the adjective I would have used.

I can't argue with Veterans Assoc Chairman Cesar Trejo's comments calling for peaceful demos outside the UK Embassy, a Greenpeasce-style demo and a boycott of British products; such are his rights.

I wonder if UK Falklands Veterans would care to return the compliment outside the Argentinian Embassy?

My first thought is that time must be a healer because they seem to have forgotten what they went through last time they invaded.

If Argentinan Veterans fought and suffered terribly when they were 20 years old, what hope now they are near 50?

So could it possibly medi hype..... from the Daily Wail....never.

Why don't we turn this into a 'what would happen if the Argentinians tried to invade/invaded again' thread...

We haven't had one for, oh, at least a week now?

Great article , Daily Mail... "Chilling" message to Gordon Brown from some argentine govt sponsored loudmouth who "threatened" to take the islands back by force. Errr ... How is he going to get there ? Plane to Heathrow , taxi to Brize and a flight down , or is he chartering a fishing boat and sailing there ?
Furthermore , quoting " Cronica" is like quoting the Daily Sport.
Note to the editor : This is not a news article , its utter b*llocks , as usual.

Oh how worrying.

The Falklands are being threatened by a load of tubby 50-something ex-conscripts with 2 decades old equipment.







How on, no, my mistake, that's the TA.

Well, herrumph! They are threatening to boycott British products, invade odds and sods 'Greenpeace style', and maybe even burn out some banks . . . . . . .






Carry on, don't mind us, we're not here, ok?

'There's also an idea for a peaceful protest in boats like the Greenpeace protests without threatening the British.'

Did'nt the French Sink the Last one ?
They like that sort of work these days, what with sinking Somalians and GreenPeace activists. Wonder if they can send a boat or two up . . . .
