    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

If I recall those missiles were of the ground launched variety, I could be wrong about that though. I imagine that had the Argentine military had been able to equip their aircraft with Exocet's it might have been a lot worse for them.

    One thing I found particularly interesting was the respect British and Argentine pilots had for one another. There were interviews done from both sides, it was neat hearing them recount their dogfights.
    The bird that hit the Sheffield was launched from an aircraft.

    At least some of them were adapted to ground launchers. I have watched two documentaries and have two books that proclaim this. The British actually launched a night time commando raid to take out the ground based launchers and some aircraft at an airfield on the coast. The Argentine military supposedly only had a handful of them.
    *insert profound statement here*
