Falklands defence review after military deal between Russia and Argentina
EXCLUSIVE: Falklands defence review after military deal between Russia and Argentina

DEFENCES on the Falklands are being reviewed after it emerged Russia plans to offer Argentina long-range bombers.

The aircraft, which Moscow will swap for beef and wheat, would be able to mount air patrols over Port Stanley.

Ministry of Defence officials fear Buenos Aires would take delivery of the planes well before the deployment in 2020 of the Navy’s 65,000-tonne aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth and its F-35B fighters, leaving a “real window of vulnerability”. (...)

Only a second Falkland War could get pug face Cameron reelected.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
