Exercise Cape Bayonet 09

Just to remind the world and especially Argentina that the British are still going to defend the Falklands the latest joint-operation exercise Exercise Cape Bayonet has been held on the islands. The exercise involves all 3 services and T42 destroyer HMS Manchester represented the RN and provided fire support for Army troops using it's main gun. It also directed RAF Tornados to "targets" in support of ground forces.

The PM meanwhile will be meeting his Argentine counterpart as part of his South American tour but said that sovereignty of the islands would not be up for discussion. Thing is, if Gordon Brown said night was dark i'd want to check for myself first so who knows what will happen?
