    There WAS no EU when we were winning two world wars.

    HTH

    Good to know they have our backs when the going gets tough. And a good thing for them that WE had an appetite in 1940.

    It's NATO's job to provide "support" during attack on one of its members.

    France was rejoined NATO in 2009.

    Why didn't UK trigger article 5?

    "Because Article 5 does not cover the Falklands. Specifically, Article 5 is only operative north of the Tropic of Cancer."

    Why was article 5 of the NATO treaty not invoked when Argentina attacked the Falklands? - Quora

    Err, they did exactly nothing. Well the French did something, they sold extra Exocet missiles to Argentina.

    Goodbye EU, you worthless stinking pool of piss.

    Argentina will exploit a no-deal Brexit to 'enhance' its claims to Falklands, says its foreign minister

    Argentina would exploit the fallout from a no-deal Brexit to further its efforts to bring the Falklands under its control, the country’s foreign minister has said.

    Jorge Faurie told The Telegraph that Argentina would use the situation to “enhance” its own diplomatic push to pull the islands away from the UK and towards Buenos Aires.

    Once the UK leaves the European Union, all EU treaties will cease to apply and member states will no longer be obliged to support the UK’s claim over the territory.

    “Our planning for Las Malvinas [the Argentine name for the islands] is to have a negotiation that will enable stronger relations between the people on the islands and the people on the continent [mainland],"...

    They can "enhance" their "claim" all they want, but if their ships get too close then they will be joining the Belgrano.

    HTH
