#1 If the Argies do somehow manage to take the islands the Brits will be hard-pressed to get them back.

True. It would be a lose-lose situation. The crater formerly known as Buenos Aires for the temporary loss of the Falklands.

#4 I'm thinkin that England isn't quite as firm in the driver's seat this time. Almost no Navy and the RAF is a mere shell of itself. all the Eurofighters and F-35s aren't quite there yet, so Evita may be in a good spot to try this.
if Bammy decides to get involved he will probably want to fight Britain.

#5 Some submarines could do some real damage near the naval bases, if they are on station early enough. Hope some are swimming about now.
