Britain could not recapture Falklands again, says general

General Sir Mike Jackson, the former head of the British Army who saw action in the Falklands War, has said Britain would not be able to recapture the islands if Argentina invaded again and secured Mount Pleasant air base.

He told the Sunday Telegraph that the loss of Britain’s Harrier jets meant its armed forces no longer had the ability to launch an air attack from the sea.

On the other hand, the paper reports, defences on the islands are now far stronger than they were when they were occupied 30 years ago.

The Telegraph has also quoted Defence Minister Gerald Howarth saying that Argentina is ‘sabre-rattling’ and has ‘neither the capability nor the intention… to repeat the folly of 1982.’
