    There were no casualties due to the garrison having enough notice to deploy to defensive positions.

    Say do you also believe that St. Pierre & Miquelon belong to Canada and not France? Shall the United States claim Bermuda because it's near North Carolina? Shall we also claim the British Virgin Islands just because they are next to the US Virgin Islands & Puerto Rico? Hell why don't we just claim Canada?

The ships will be sunk by a British submarine, and any aircraft will be downed beyond their effective range by British fighters. End of the surprise.

    Seems like wishful thinking. See above. Read something about the British military presence and readiness, and the Argentinean military capabilities and readiness.

    I believe it was a single platoon. The Argentineans tried to wipe them out in their beds, but got a nasty shock when they found them awake and ready.

    Yup, any attempt is going to lead to allot of dead Argentineans, and an even more entrenched Population who want to remain British.

    You do not wish for it, yet you wrote that we might wake tomorrow to a surprise invasion?

    my comment was just a parting jab at my pro British members.
    Ah, I see, just a provocation, thank you for clarifying that.

    So basically you're a self confessed troll.Trolling, trying to bait us with a hope that they invade which would involve killing our fellow countrymen....

Although I do believe the Islands are rightfully Argentina's, but then again all anyone has to do is check my previous postings regarding the subject.

    Hell, we may wake up tommorow to a surprise Argentine invasion. Goodnight all, Viva las Malvinas

    Until one points to the UN charter that Argantina signed up too. Something like Article one on the first page is the important bit.

    Either way the Argantinians stomping around and huffing and puffing is ammusing from our point of view, nothing more. We know they're impotent apart from teddy projection sessions.

    Well, the usual. They only listen to what they want to hear and say what's predictable of them.

    They wanted no foreign observers to give democratic legitimation to the referendum, and they failed. The Uruguayan parliamentarians who were there as observers were criticized by the Uruguayan government - they were minority MPs. Apart from that unsavory detail, the observers came from several countries, and their preliminary report - as one would expect - validates the voting procedures.

    But the Argentineans will just say that the referendum should be ignored, so back to square one.

    Awesome job Falkland Islanders

    I believe the 99.8% vote broke the all time record of Gibraltar's 99.6% in favor of remaining British in 1967. I believe the Gibraltar 2002 referendum was only about 98.8% in favor of staying British ...

    The score:
    1,517 for remaining part of the UK.
    3 for the Argentinian option.

    So how was the Argentinians undermining plan doing again?
