It does all hang together in a funny sort of way as the DUP now have a metaphorical nuclear weapon aimed at Conservative Central Office to ensure the Tories don't step out of line.

Back to the Falklands, would the Americans, who said the conflict was a dispute between friends, really have allowed Britain to unleash a nuclear bomb against Argentina?

When I lived in New York I had a taxi ride from an insufferable cabbie who swore blind that Britain actually did nuke Buenos Aires, followed by the biggest cover up of the 20th century!

Not as BIG as this one though.....

Meantime back in the South Atlantic the Antarctic Treaty banning mineral extraction expires in 2041. The Falklanders, or rather HMG, looks well placed to take advantage of such a situation.

Oil exploration in the islands surrounding territorial waters are already showing plenty of potential....if and when oil price rises there will be a tidy windfall to the Treasury.

And wasn't that the reason we sent the task force.?Wink

Yes and one of reasons Argentina invadied. When in history did the Falklands actually belong to the Federal State of Argentina? .

Only a small part of present day Ukraine was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Kiev is Ukrainian speaking and was part of the Russian Empire.
The difference between the Russian and Ukrainian languages are slight. In parts of the Ukraine it is debatable whether someone speaks Ukrainian with a Russian accent or Russian with a Ukrainian accent.

Were they actually independent in those years or still fighting for it from Spain. Thought the Falklands returned (?) to the British 20 years before Argentina was accepted as a federal state in it's own right. I only say returned as that what a couple of websites say.

You can include Belorussian in the language group. It's a bit like the German language, with high German, low German, Swiss German, Swabian etcThe western portion of Ukraine was part of the Polish/Lithuanian Empire & after the partition of Poland there was a strong sense of independence in the Ukrainian speaking parts of the Ukraine. The eastern & southern parts have been under the influence of the Russian Empire for much longer.

Ukrianian/Russian/Belorussian are nothing like German. They belong to the Slavic language family along with Bulgarian,Serbian,Croat, Czech and Polish amongst others.
German along with Dutch and the Scandinavian languages belong to the Germanic language family.
All these are Indo-European languages as are the Latin languages.

I think the point being made wasn't about the similarity of the languages per se, but the grouping of very similar languages. The idea the Russian, Ukrainian and Belorussian forming an overlapping continuum, in the same way that all the variants of German do.
