  • The Conflict between Great Britine and Argentine

    Argentine claims the British oil- bore-plattforms near the British Falkland islands. Therefore the British headcommand of the navy had send the atomic submarine HMS Sceptre to the Falklands io protect their plattforms against attacks of Argentine. The danger of a new Falkland War between Great Britain and Argentine is now comeing up. A widow of an British army captain is still processing against the British goverment, because her husband was killed during an attack of his battleunit to a military Argentine position in the last Falkland War. She believes, that the death of her husband was caused by the BBC-broadcast, which had announced the attack before it took place. The reports about war happenings is often dangerous for the fighting units, because their enemies also listen to them.

    The most imbisilic of these types of broadcast was done by the president and Commander - In - Chief of the USA. Lyndon Baines Johnson. He announced over a nationwide TV broadcast that our jets were going to bomb Hanoi which they had not be permitted to do before, a full hour before the bombing began. Well, another Democratic liberal moron in the White House, what did you expect?

      Interesting I would like to see how this one comes out. I think we need to go back to the WW2 model in which we get reports after the battle not before and during. I know against Iraq it might not of mattered but I remeber the one news cast showing tanks trying to cross a bridge. Nothing better than having someone else get intel for you.

        The BBC did the same thing in 1942 by announcing that Tobruk was unable to be held which - as you can imagine - did wonders for the morale of the troop there.

            In this case though I'm pretty sure the UK government were just fine with the Argentinian government knowing we've got a sub loitering around there.
