The Mail on Sunday reports. "Britains sovereignty over the Falklands is set to be called into question by a new official history commisioned by Tony Blair." The book is said to reveal secret Foreign Office advice on the British claim to the Islands and criticise Big Maggies handling of the crisis. The professor who wrote the book is said to "not appreciate that the Falklands is still a continuing dispute and that whatever he wrote would have a direct political impact." Obviously!!! Yet again Tony kicks this country in the teeth. He will be shiping 2 Para over to Argentina to apologise for their conduct next. What an arrsehole!!! The author, professor sir lawrence freedman (I hate him already!!) also says his book shows that the decision to sink the Belgrano was "British weakness" and admitted "there are some people who are not all that pleased with the fact that the book is coming out". Well, he is a professor isn't he!!!! As for "British weakness" IMHO when you are a small taskforce of modern paper thin frigates with no air cover and 8000 miles from home, yes you are in weak position. Especially when a WW2 vintage (Belgrano was formerly USS Pheonix and survived the Pearl Harbour) Cruiser is cutting about. Thats why when the chance came up she was sent to the seabed!!! Her massive 12" (may be wrong) guns could have ripped our frigate and destroyers apart, yet our exocets, etc would have pretty much bounced off her armour. What shows Argie Weakness is that A. they lost and B. the two destroyers escorting the Belgrano didn't attempt to interdict the Conquerer before or after the attack. They just hit the gas and didn't stop till they were tied up alongside port!!! Thats why so many sailors from the ship died. The argies seemed to think that the Maritime Exclusion Zone meant that if you werent in it you were safe. Hence they used to go around it and only entered it for certain things, like launching missiles. They didn't realise that when you declare war, then your ships are at risk where ever they are!!! and the Exclusion Zone was for more for commercial ships to avoid the hostile area. Or that is my read on what a MEZ is for. And of course post sinking the argie bargies of their navy never left port again. Undoubtedly saving many British and Argie sailors lives. Also bear in mind the Argies had removed the Belgranos torpedo bulges, designed to trigger the torpedoes away from the real side of the ship, a bit like a bumper. This tit of a professor needs his PHd ripping from him and then getting shipped down south for a battlefield tour and a chat to the bennies. Who, if I'm not mistaken, want to stay British. Regardless of what some prof/legal types or Argentina think should happen!!!
