Gibraltar: Tensions grow after Royal Navy confronts Spanish warship | Mail Online
Two nations, one failed economy and another struggling fighting over rocks!!
What's Gibraltar's present strategic importance?? In WWII it was one of two allied chokepoints for convoys between Axis-controlled Europe and North Africa. But why fight over that island base now??
Most strategic location from which transport to european countries can be choked off completely. It has a similar importance like strait of hormuz/Malacca straits - choking points.
Whom are the British going to blockade?? the French or the Germans!!
