Shanghaiceltic BS: Meryl Streep as Thatcher (37) RE: BS: Meryl Streep as Thatcher 04 Jul 10

Will Streep weild an extra big handbag....the idea of MT handbagging the European leaders still amuses me.

As for Bonzo3legs comment on the Belgrano sinking, it was sunk because she was considered a threat to the British fleet. The fact she had a large number of conscripts on board is not relevant.

She was armed with Exocet missiles and very heavy guns. Yes she was steaming away from the area when sunk but she could have turned around in 10 minutes or less.

Following her sinking all other surface units stayed in port or well out of the area and therefore there was no further loss of life in the Argentinian Navy.

We knew they still had a couple of small diesal/electric submarines at sea, very quiet and we never did find them.
