Putin Signs Military Pact with Argentina
Well this is bound to piss off David Cameron. Badboy Vlad Putin has inked a military pact with Argentine president Christina Fernandez backing her country against Britain over the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) dispute.
“The new agreement on military collaboration and data protection will enable the considerable increase of practical cooperation in this field”, Mr Putin said.
The posturing risks tipping the war of words between London and Buenos Aires into full-blown conflict, as tensions heighten over sovereignty of the remote south Atlantic outcrop.
Meanwhile in the Baltic the Finns say they've spotted what they believe to be a Russian sub in Finnish territorial waters. Sigh.
