    Great Photos but I always wonder where the photos of the Argentinian soldiers are?
    We should not forget that they were soldiers and in the most part just doing their jobs and had many losses too.

    The Junta were fools to think we would not retaliate and take back the Falklands

    Great Photos.
    read a previous post on here about the ridiculous possibility that the Argentinians would invade again. (think it was posted by a member called Mineman)

    Anyway

    If they invaded again they should expect the same response.
    Regardless of what the Argentinian people think about the Falklands and its sovereignty, too many people have died keeping it safe in British hands.
    The Falklands has been occupied by the Brits for many years and I doubt that the British Government would allow it to be taken again. It would show weekness and that is something the British people are not, like it or not.

    I feel very sorry for the Argentinian soldiers who died and I will remember them in my prayers but thats how I feel about it.
