Oh, no. Not another bloody Falklands thread. I'm writing to my MP to ask if we can just nuke Buenos Aires, just so there's no more ******* threads about the Falklands. Some twat will be along in a minute going on about obsolete aeroplanes.

Don't worry our Typhoons will be able to defend the islands. The Argentine aircraft are all obsolete you know.

Happy now?

Anyone reckon any truth ? Call me cynical but .........

BBC News - Could Britain still defend the Falklands?
In short: No stronghold is impregnable. The USMC could probably manage an invasion. The important thing is that there's **** all chance the Argies could take them even if they could deploy everything they've got in a sneak attack, which they couldn't do without our detecting something anyway.

Now **** off and stop starting shit threads that have been done a million times before.

No doubt you will post something to back that comment up? Bearing in mind of course that armed forces of all nations have examples of blue on blue.

I'm sure you'll also take care to express the number of blue on blues that the USMC have had as a percentage of the number of assets they had deployed at the time.

It's just my perception, perhaps media reporting (certainly in Europe) distorts the stats to it's own advantage?

I certainly won't dispute that every nation has examples of blue on blue, certainly we (UK) have well documented examples of our own.

Interesting point you make about looking at it as a ratio of assets deployed, perhaps that's why the numbers are usually so much greater (thinking Desert storm with 31 injured in one incident).

Anyhoo, it was an attempt at humour - if it touched a nerve (seemingly) then I do apologise, and am always happy to be corrected :)

The island will be fine as long as they got a few high-velocity Minimi semi-automatic assault rifles to protect it.
I now remember why I don't bother watching the news.
