|Quoting Dano1977 (Reply 307):|
he royal family and politicians wanted him removed danger, but he point blankly refused to leave iirc
Actually, the reports were that Maggie asked the Queen if Andrew should have been removed from his unit, Her Majesty was shocked at even suggesting it.
Luckily the armed forces were not burdened with Maggie's idiot Son.
|Quoting AR385 (Reply 311):|
I don´t think that the UK stopping diplomatic relations with Argentina will affect them in any way. as for advocates of military action:
Funny how you do not quote the whole part of what you attribute to me ,as advocating military action, since doing so would clearly indicate that I was citing possible trade retribution, nothing else, against Argentina's illegal blockade actions. Given their conduct in trade, not just involving the UK either, it would be as much as they deserve.
And they call the UK 'Pirates'.
But what you did serves as a useful reminder, since it is very much like the current Argentine government, disingenuous, highly selective with facts, a tendency to wildly exaggerate and just be plain dishonest.
Which is why they are at best, viewed with caution and distrust by even their neighbours, No one trusts them, other nations and international bodies alike, for their petulance, childishness, lack of good faith and lack of logic.
It does not need me to point this out, as mentioned before and you did not quote, not all Argentine governments since the 1982 war have been like this.
The UK can deal, within set terms in regards to the status of the islands, rationally with Argentine governments, not this bunch though. And not just the UK finds this.
Meanwhile, the domestic economic situation there worsens, CFK and her govt. main response is to blatantly lie about economic indicators, threaten the press who don't unquestionably support them, small wonder they seek distractions to make a fuss about.
