@SonAmyHeartbreakCompany doth wonder...

!latinx !neolibs !historychads assuming that he succeeds in turning Argentina into the perfect ancap utopia he wants, would Milei ever consider retaking Las Malvinas? Or at least try to negotiate a takeover? I know he's pretty nationalistic, but as a lolbert guy I'm not sure if that's something he would desire (especially since those cringe af Peronists tried to earlier and fricked up hard)... :marseyquestion:

It wouldn't work if he tried. The modern Argentinian military is a meme and ranks solidly behind even Chile who's way behind Brazil. The Falklands on the other hands is the most militarised possession of the UK in the world with a dedicated army and RAF base.

He said it would be unfair to annex the Falklands while Argentina is in its current state. He claims once Argentina rebounds and becomes an actual developed country then the Falklanders themselves will want to join, in other words it is not on his priority table.

Also the Argentine Armed Forces are in a terrible shape, they're in no condition of taking anything from anyone, I know people here love to make fun of Bongland but despite being much smaller than during it's heydey the Royal Navy is still a formidable force, they have nuclear subs, 2 large aircraft carriers and F35 fighters.

Is there literally any way in which he could succeed at that, though? I imagine if things got actually dire for the brits down there they'd tap on America's shoulder for air support, and a single US carrier group could probably rout the entirety of Argentina's navy and air force.

A lot of frigates with plenty of anti-naval missiles might work. It would take 5 years tops (:lol:) to get there, but everyone in the world would notice.

The other problem is maintaining the supply. Assuming they can carry out the amphibious assault with 5k soldiers, they'd need to keep shipping supplies over, but at that point the UK and eventually the US could blockade the islands.

It would be really expensive for them to gain a shitty little set of islands.

It only took a little baby British helicopter carrier with one of those gay takeoff ramps with Harriers on it to win the last one. (Tbf it was actually really close and if a few rolls of the dice went the other way Argentina would have won.)

The Argentinian military was actually pretty strong then. They had a good air force with modern weapons, the French Super Etendard/Exocet, which unfortunately for them was defective kinda like how the French sold everyone hemophilia drugs infected with literal AIDS at the same time. I'm a hardcore francophile but that was a bad time.

Anyway my point is, Argentina's military capabilities now are minimal. They (rightly) decided not to pay billions of dollars keeping it up the last 40 years. It would take at least a decade to buy new stuff and train guys on it before they could think of even taking on Britain's pathetic remnant of an empire.

It's a miracle they won the Falklands war they simply didn't have the logistics to support such an operation and had to commandeer container ships to use as helicopter landing ships. If the Argentina's were a little more competent they would have lost.

Why did either of these countries care about this island so much? It seems pretty insignificant to fight over for either party.

The Brits got it before the Spanish and the Argies want it because it's close to them.

>the Junta was made of liberals

:#marseyconfused:

While the Economy minister Martínez de Hoz implemented market reforms no military junta is going to be a bastion of social and political liberalism. The “Proceso de Reorganización Nacional” or National Reorganization Process was probably the most chaotic and incompetent military dictatorship in South America besides the Bolivian ones to the point even among Argie rightoids it's hard to find open Military Dictatorship cucks/nostalgics, something that is quite common in Chile and Brazil (my granny included).

This seems to be changing though as Milei's VP, Victoria Villarruel is the daughter of an army colonel who fought against the Leftoid guerrillas (The Montoneros) during the 70s and they're trying to do their best to rehabilitate the milicos.

Milei seems to be doing well so far

On top of monthly fiscal surpluses and falling inflation, the gap between the official and black-market exchange rates is now only about 20%. Foreign reserves have grown by over $7bn. And the government successfully extended the maturity of stacks of peso debt, reducing pressure on the treasury. The IMF is pleased; markets are starting to believe. Argentina's country-risk index, a measure of the chance of default, has dropped reassuringly (see chart). On the economy, Mr Milei deserves an eight or nine out of ten, enthuses Andrés Borenstein of Econviews, a consultancy in Buenos Aires, the capital.

fun fact: even though argentina attacked a NATO country, article 5 wasn't invoked because NATO only protects territories above the tropic of cancer as defined in article 6. this is why hawaii is technically not protected by NATO

They would probably still invoke article 5. At the end of the day, invoking article 5 is a political decision, you just need the 32 member states to agree to invoke it, and if a NATO country got nuked i'd find it hard to believe that they wouldn't do it.

however if they did refuse to invoke it, they would absoultely cite article 6 as a reason

Jump in the discussion.

No email address required.

What's art. 6?

Jump in the discussion.

No email address required.

so article 5 states that an attack against one is an attack against all, and article 6 clarifies that this attack has to be

on the territory of any of the Parties in Europe or North America, on the Algerian Departments of France, on the territory of Turkey or on the Islands under the jurisdiction of any of the Parties in the North Atlantic area north of the Tropic of Cancer

tldr: article 6 states that article 5 can technically only be invoked when territories above the tropic of cancer are attacked ("territories" being defined as land under control of the state)
