Depending upon the location of the Argentine air bases the Brits are intending to neutralize, the Pacific may actually be closer.

If the Argies forward deploy their aircraft, they would be vulnerable to forces stationed in the Falklands; if they stage them away from the Atlantic coast, they would provide target practice for a ship in the Pacific.

Weren't there stories the last time Britain kicked Argentina's ass that British commandos crossed Chile to destroy Argentine aircraft of the ground?

Reminds me of the cartoon I saw during the Falklands War of the early '80's. You saw a few Brit soldiers with full camo, guns, etc., and one on the radio saying, "Roger, Invincible, we have captured South Georgia. Natives seem bewildered, over." The natives in question were a bunch of hillbillies and an old hound dog in front of Floyd's General Store. I still have the cartoon somewhere in a box with a bunch of others from that era - it was a real hoot.
