Blood for Oil

If I was in charge of Britain, I'd raise the alert level of forces in the Falklands.

Pardon me for seeming paranoid, but when President Kirchner has difficulties, I wouldn't take chances when those difficulties are getting serious:

An Argentine prosecutor has formally accused the country's president in a cover up involving one of Argentina's worst terrorist attack.

Opening another dramatic chapter in what's already an international tale of intrigue and possibly murder, prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita said President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, Foreign Minister Héctor Marcos Timmerman and other top officials tried to cut a deal for oil with Iran in exchange for not punishing two Iranians implicated in the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association, which left 85 people dead.

Two years ago, Kirchner rattled sabres over the islands when her popularity plummeted. What might she do now when prison is possible?

I'd also get a nuclear attack submarine in the area pronto, too. And alert fighter aircraft and paratroopers for an airlift. Just in case.

UPDATE: Oh, and one more thing. Britain might want to put down a security deposit on France's aircraft carrier if the British want naval air support available in the South Atlantic.

Good luck with that.
