Mines Falklands.

This is coolbert:

Disinformation? Sputnik at work. A "false news" agenda at work here.

"disinformation - - noun - - false information that is intended to mislead, especially propaganda issued by a government organization to a rival power or the media."

"Russian government owned news agency claims a British mine caused the sinking of the ARA San Juan"

As seen at Freeper and thanks to same extracted from the UK Defense Journal that article by George Allison.

"Sputnik has claimed that the sinking of Argentine submarine ARA San Juan was caused by a British deep-sea mine deployed during the Falklands War. The problem? Britain didn’t lay any mines. Sputnik News is a successor to Russian state-owned RIA Novosti’s international branch which became defunct in 2013. The agency is wholly owned and operated by the Russian Government. The article . . . suggests that the explosive event registered in the area of operations of the Argentine submarine ARA San Juan was caused by a deep-sea mine installed at the time of the Falklands War in 1982."


There is a degree of plausibility to this story. How plausible and what extent so I cannot say. Who is to say too that even if it was a naval sea mine that sank the San Juan how are we to know this not a weapon as placed in the water from as far back as the Great War?
