HMS EAGLE in the Falklands

Nice update.

Great raid, but how are they going to hold the airfield?
Given the casualties that the Argentine forces on the islands have already taken and the fact that the Argentine Air Force is three quarters of the way to joining the Argentine Navy in complete destruction the British should be able to hold the airfield with little to no difficulty.
 
How dare you insult a Gurkha by ever suggesting that he would allow his Kurki to go blunt!
It is a fresh factory issue Kurki it was put in his hand when they placed him on the island. Challenge is how fast can you get it sharp and how many Argentines can he kill and terrify!,
 
The only advice for the Argentines now: "Make peace, you fools!"
The problem is that they cannot as to do so would mean the end of the ruling military junta. A junta's whose pride and desperate desire to stay in power has seen them pick a fight with the British, a fight they cannot win.

Start looting the treasury then leave town to somewhere with no extradition treaty with Argentina :p

They didn't pick a fight with the British. What they thought they were doing was to show that, after Suez, the British were naked and would have to resort to non effective diplomatic moves. I am quite sure a Labour PM would have been quite resolute, it was just their bad luck to have a weak woman as their opponent
