An Editorial by J. Brock (FINN)
According to an article in the EXPRESS Newspaper Fergal MacErlean is vague about what country this so called defence expert, Roberto Lopes comes from.
Defesnet is a Brasilian website and indeed Lopes is a journalist from that country but does that qualify him as a defence expert?
As far as I can tell he has written about Argentina buying Israeli fighter planes for £145 Million and added to the £30 Million for the super tugs that amounts to a fortune in comparison to Argentinas debts, which are substantive.
Stopping the Falklands oil exploration and exploitation may be on Argentinas wish list, but I dont think they can afford another war in the South Atlantic.
Quite frankly, on this issue the media cant have it both ways Argentine reports of Militarisation of the Falklands by the British is fantasy and so are Brasilian reports about super tugs and Israeli bomber jets.
