I guess that a major war amidst Europe would actually work against Argentina

If I got your point correct, of course. You seem to imply that when (if) a war starts in Europe in which GB is going to participate, it will lose all interest toward their overseas territories, right? And then Argentina could easily capture the Falklands, as you seem to assume. In reality, though, if anything such is going to happen, Britain will just nuke Argentina back into Stone Age without much ado, and it will quickly forget about the islands for the next few centuries (if not millenia)

If there is a major war in Europe, and the United Kingdom is one of the participating nations, then Argentina can easily get support from the other side. Suppose if the war is between the UK and Germany, then Argentina can strike a deal with Germany. In this deal, the Argentines will provide military help and food exports to Germany in exchange for the Germans providing air defense for Argentina

You must be kidding mate!

Do you think that Argentina becoming an ally of Germany will somehow save it from nuking? I guess that would actually make it into a primary target. GB will never nuke Germany, no matter how things are going to evolve (since that would most likely lead to an escalation up to a full-fledged exchange of nuclear strikes across the world). Instead, they will just nuke Argentina (Falklands or no Falklands), and no one will give a fuck about poor Argentina. Germany will most certainly seek help from Russia, and you can pretty soon expect Russian "peacekeepers" to be deployed near la Manche. And the war will be over in two weeks (with Putin declared as the emperor of a new Holy Roman Empire, from ocean to ocean). The US most likely won't interfere (as per usual in any serious skirmish)

Argentina is tens of thousands of km away from the Great Britain. And as far as I know, none of the British nuclear weapons are deployed near the Falklands. That means that, the UK doesn't have the capability of nuking Argentina.

You certainly don't know

They don't need their nuclear weapons to be deployed stationary anywhere near the Falklands since they have ballistic-missile submarines which can deliver a nuclear warhead right to the coast of Argentina itself (or elsewhere, for that matter). You should be well familiar with the accident which happened in February 2009 when two submarines collided in the Atlantic ocean



One of them was British nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine HMS Vanguard

Theresa May would be prepared to go to war to protect Gibraltar as Margaret Thatcher once did for the Falklands.War between Great Britain and EU countries for some rock on the sea,if that will happen than all kind of friendly relation between GB and EU will be destroyed,financial tornado becouse of London Citi,all financial institution will have leave Citi to make business in EU,normally btc price will sky rocket.even that kind of official comments from top GB politician is pure madness.Lets see markets in monday

No war is going to happen, it is nothing more than politics tough talk, while Gibraltar is an important piece of strategic land, the truth is no leader in their right mind will go to war for such a small piece of land with so little resources.

Never underestimate people's irrationality. Besides, how did it end up in England's hands anyway? Anyone with a large enough navy there can practically seal off the Mediterranean. Was definitely crucial to England's maritime power.

Some nations also have disguised secret underground missile bases.

The united states was known to have one buried beneath the ice sheet in greenland, under project iceworm.
