UK / ARGENTINA : London Considers Beefing-Up Falklands Forces Before March.


     Britain may send additional warships to the South Atlantic...before a March referendum in the Falklands/Las Malvinas islands...over sovereignty.
     According to The Telegraph...the possible show of force would include an extra warship, an aircraft carrier and more troops....besides the HMS Edinburgh (above) currently cruising in the region.
    The HMS Clyde, the fleet tanker HMS Gold and ice patrol ship HMS Protector are also  in the region...along with 1,500 troops housed on the islands.
