    But the argies don't have the capacity to mount a successful invasion.

    UK accuses Argentina of "colonialism"

    Peals of laughter. Howls of side splitting mirth.

    But you are coming from the wrong premise Argentina is now.totally democratic without having the slightest intention of an invasion.They have been showing up English imperialism all over the Americas.Even the US calls for negotiations bewtween the two countries.
