No, but thanks to this offal of a government, Iraq, Afghanistan, half the fleet rusting by the quayside and the last fortnight....AndyPipkin said:Just electoral posturing by Sr Kirchner - I really dfon't think the Argies fancy another crack militarily, especially considering that their armed forces suffer even more from lack of funding than our own.
