Israel allegedly supplied Argentina with arms during the Falklands conflict

#1
I read this one with interest today. It's a story making the international rounds regarding Israel secretly supplying Argentina with missiles, long distance aircraft fuel tanks and sundry other items DURING the Falklands conflict. If true, with friends like these, who needs enemies? And before the resident SS members board the outrage bus. Remember its a story that involves Israel and Argentina, not Jews and Argentina. Fire away.....

no great surprise - make some dosh outsourcing old kit - cant blame them. the big secret will be whether the US sanctioned it like they did arms to iran or the deals with south africa ect..
 
#3
If we had good enough intelligence to be able to photograph the stuff? it's possible the Americans gave us the info if? Israel told them what they were doing.
 
#4
They were supplying and training the Guatemalans in the 80s as well when we were in Belize. No strangers to making a sheckel or two!

Fair enough. But it doesn't mean you should make a complete whore out of yourself doing it. I mean time and place etc. There has to be some loyalty involved in the consideration surely? Or is it really as I've seen posted elsewhere, that Israel is nothing more than an inconsiderate self absorbed opportunist?

Israel has a complex and it is probably right in that the world let the jews burn and will do so again and again, so it has to look after itself first.

they do like to forget the help they were given on several occasions though.

mind you the timings might be interesting and any factored delays or jacked up prices meaning its more than possible that the israelis had 'permission' to tie up argentine hard currency reserves, we were playing games with argentina and its proxies who were trying to buy exocets on the world market most of which were bought up by SIS or didn't exist in the first place to prevent the buyers looking any further. I seem to remember we made over 20 million that way so its plausible that it was designed to get israel an 'in' with the junta to pass intelligence up the food chain to where the aid comes from.

france clogged up the exocets for us and also has strange dealings with israel, so they are likely to have known if any of their old kit was moving house.

we buy their stuff and they steal ours - a classic working relationship.

We have flogged arms regularly to all of Israel's pikey neighbours, whilst bezzering all the time with Tel Aviv, why shouldn't they then try and make a fast thirty shekels in shafting us?

We are now bezzering militarily with the French, who happily provided exocets and aircraft parts during the war and we are now bezzering with the antichrist in Rome, who's bank paid for it all!

I notice all of the articles are from 2011 the rounds this story is making must be very slow.

My uncle - who at one stage was the editor of the Sunday Telegraph - I believe once asked if the Israeli's ever wondered why no one liked them...he was very seldom invited onto television after that...

People seem to forget that the Israeli hierarchy consists mostly of terrorists.

Nation wise, we should have no friends but allies for a given situation ....... which is or should be the reality.
That should apply to Ireland as much as Israel et al.............. It is only the liberal dim-witted or people with another overriding agenda that would think otherwise.

At the point of repeating myself and feeling slightly wrong to be backing the French, they went out of their way to help us in the Falklands, training, int, weapons specs, holding up arm shipments - give them their due

I seem to remember the Israeli president at the time had fought against us in Palestine as a terrorist - perhaps his actions were motivated by puerile petty personal revenge rather than state diplomacy

As a former employee of the Sperry Rand Corporation (1973 1976) , I clearly remember being involved in the manufacture of Rate Gyro's, the accompanying cost centre paperwork of which had Exocet Block 3 written all over it .

Was not one of the fuses on Exocet made by us as well?
