PostSubject: Another Falkland Island Editorial   14/4/2012, 21:21

Baor(27CIB)surfers,
Another Falkland Island Editorial
Gwynne Dyer a London- (not London, Ont) based independent journalist published an article on Friday, 13 April 2012 which appeared in the Waterloo Region Record widely distributed in the Kitchener Waterloo area of Ontario.
The half page editorial's headlines read as follows, 'Lessons From the Falklands conflict' and 'We are no longer allowed to shift control of territories from one country to another by force'. Hopefully, he will try to publish his editorial in countries like North Korea which is still technically at war with South Korea, China which continues to vow for the return of the sovereign state of Taiwan, and Iran which hopes to build a hegemony of Muslim states. In addition to his editorial there is a large picture of Argentina's President, Christina Kirchener with the caption, Argentina's President holds up a plaque that reads in Spanish: 'Islas Malvinas' or Malvinas Islands at a ceremony in Ushuaia, Argentina, April 2, marking the 30th anniversary of the start of the Falkland conflict. A better caption for Christina's picture would have been, "Don't- cry for me -Argentina, I'm working- on my - foreign policy."Dyer's research is not bad accept for his opening paragraph where he torpedoes the validity of his editorial by using Sean Penn to support his thesis. He says Penn, the occasional actor and whose well deserved Nobel Peace Prize continues to to be delayed for mysterious reasons, was the first famous foreigner to lend his support to the cause. Wow, has he got that wrong? The mention of Sean Penn is enough to make one throw up or puke! Dyer goes on to destroy the effectiveness of his piece further by trying to inject some silly humor by quoting a statement made by Fidel Castro that the British have only one little boat left; all they are able to do is to send over a destroyer; they can't even send an aircraft carrier.
I would like to have sent the full editorial and the picture as a post to the Baor forum but instead have sent the scans to JPW to see if they can get approval from the Baor editors and webmaster for posting. In the meantime look for the editorial in your own newspapers.
Cheers

It`s very unliklely that Argentina will try to retake the islands by force..Our military strength is a little more than the few token marines, as it was before the war...Not a large force,but enough to deter the saber ratteling Christina

We've got submarines in those waters and land-based aircraft.

Don't give much for the Argie's chances.

Of course, oil is at the root of the trouble, as usual.

The only reason the Argies successefully invaded the Falklands in 1982 was because the only opposition they faced was a section of Marines, and as as good as our Marines are I'm afraid the odds were a tad one sided however, things are very different now. With a resident infantry Battalion and assorted support and logistics, four or five Typhoon's, a couple of frigates (and probably at least one submarine) The Falklands garrison may not be very big but I'm sure it's more than capable of defending The Falkland Islands against a determined Argie attack, and the Argies know it.

Maybe the Argies are thinking that now they have a female president, it'll be like , " The Iron Lady" of the UK. Except they still forget that having a military long on fancy uniforms and duff medals for their exalted Generals/Admirals trained by stamping down on their own people. Really doesn't make for much of a good armed force. Still I suppose it does help in hard economic times to divert attention from problems at home.

Baor(27CIB)surfers,
Furthering the thread on the Falkland Island topic, JPW thinks its OK to submit the following picture and the editorial:

Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner
Holding a plaque reading "Islas Malvinas'' taken at a ceremony at Ushuaia, Argentina, April 2, 2012 marking the 30th anniversary of the start of the Falkland conflict.
Unfortunately the editorial has gone M.I.A. in the computer memory. Sorry, will launch a search.
Cheers

Len, I don't think we'll be around to see that but you're right, water is becoming a big issue.
Latest thinking is that if Scotland gains further sovereignty, it will embolden Quebec to separate. Could Alberta then be next? It would be down hill for Canada as we know it.

As we are a confederation I guess its up to the individual provinces to determine their own fate, however if Quebec did opt for independence, then they go out with the territory they came in with .. that would put a damper on their nationalistic dreams.

'oops !! back to BAOR related subjects ..
