Goodbye to the Malvinas

HMG has decided to scrap the Sea Harrier without talking to her Allies on teh grounds of cost and "the Navy would be able to dispatch a task force with air defence provided by a "coalition" aircraft carrier". Which of our allies would we have to go to, cap in hand, if a naval taskforce is needed to defend one of our territories. We will not be able to muster a naval taskforce between 2006 and 2012. Second Falklands War, anyone, especially as Argentinian democracy looks fragile at the moment.
