Britain Calls On American Cavalry Against Argentina, Again (Over Falklands)


The First Falkland War & US-UK Support:

In 1982 First Falklands War, Britain victory was only assured not by superb and brave fighting of it’s soldiers; from both the special forces, who were stretched to breaking point, but, alas, at the same time to be blamed for the numerous military distasters, as since coming from the heels of Iranian siege successes and popularism, they demanded the similar heroic independent missions, while ignoring the value of the regular forces sent to fight along side them, (or even their real role as supportive not main forces) until the last phases of the war, did the admiration kick in, on both side. Anyway, the point is, the victory was assured only by the ‘behind the doors’ US intervention and covert support, especially in arms (such as the priceless stinger) and perhaps most importantly, American intelligence assets in the region and international diplomatic efforts; which both proved highly critical to the successes of the war for UK.

The Present Falklands War II (?)

In short, the recent Cameroon visit to the US, had at the core of the visit the re-isolationism, and diplomatic pressures of the Argetinians by the ‘International Community’, led by US-Britain; since Britain no longer command such a community, it sought the help of the country able to force others into the line. The first counter-reply comes few weeks after the visit in the form of ‘minor economic sanctions’ (see this article: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/26/us-usa-argentina-trade-idUSBRE82P0QX20120326). What next is the question?

Some excellent headlines for yourselves as usual (really good reading on the revival of corrupt cultures in the west, political and business; the French Tragedy and how Sarkozy impetuous jump to ‘use the crisis’ on his advantage seems to have back-fire as I predicted; the selling of direct-access to power centres; Kenya access Oil (is the country next battlefield for the west? Nah cant be, it is already ‘well-behaved’ western client state!) and so forth.

Enjoy
