'Give me ten picked men and a year and I could solve your Northern Irish problem'.

SHARE
Talking about the Falklands War (as I was two posts down), at university I met the captain of the RN ship that brought back the Argentinian Commander Astiz under arrest for war crimes to England. The two men dined together every night. Astiz said: 'Give me ten picked men and a year and I could solve your Northern Irish problem'.

Possibly he could have done. Very possibly.
