[quote:Anonymous Coward 32176331:MV8yMTEwNzEzXzM1NTgzMzk3X0E0NzI2MzQ2] The [Antarctic] treaty, […] , establishes freedom of scientific investigation and bans military activity on that continent. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarctic_Treaty_System [/quote]
In 1982, General Galtieri the Argentine dictator did not jsut seize the Falklands. He grabbed the Falklands, South Georgia (half way to Africa) and then sent troops to begin occupying ANtarctica.
Argentina has long claimed Antarctica to be part of its country and even flew a pregnant woman there with a medical team so it could claim to have had citizens born there.
So, if they don't stop the Argies in the Falklands, when do they stop them?
Maybe only when Argie troops are running amok in the Mawson, Davis and Casey Australian weather stations, mowing down the Ozzie meteorologists with automatic fire?
...Or maybe we should wait until they arrive in Hobart?
