    TRANSCRIPT: TYSON: MY THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATION AS A WHOLE, I CAN THINK ONLY OF THE IROUGES WHICH ARISE FOR MY NEWSPAPER. WE ARE VERY PRO-BRITAIN IN THE QUESTION OF THE INVASION OF THE ARGENTINES; BUT ON THE QUESTION OF SANETOUS, THE IRONIES ABOUND. ONE OF THEM IS THAT IS S.AFRICA HADN'T HAD SANCTIONS AGAINST IT ON WEAPONS FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS, IT WOULD NOT BE IN THE POSITION IT IS IN TODAY OF BEING APPARENTLY ONE OF THE TEN MAJOR EXPORTERS OF ARMS IN THE WORLD. SANCTIONS HAVE BUILT UP ARMS POTENTIAL, MANUFACTURING POTENTIAL IN THE COUNTRY & THE GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN THE STAND THAT IT WILL NOT APPLY TO ANYONE ELSE. NOW IT IS LEFT IN A CLEFT - STICK IN THIS SITUATION, THEY WILL NOT FORBID ARMS TO ANYBODY I SUPPOSE AT THIS STAGE, AND THEY ARE IN FACT SUPPLYING ARMS OR WE BELIEVE THEY ARE SUPPLYING THESE MISSILES TO THE ARGENTINES & WE ARE TOLD THEY ARE SUPPLYING CERTAIN MILITARY EQUIPMENT TO BRITAIN. THAT IS ONE OF THE IRONIE ONE CAN UNDERSTAND THE FEELINGS OF ANYONE IN BRITAIN BEING ANGERED BY THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THIS COUNTRY IS SUPPLYING WEAPONS TO AN ENEMY, ON THE OTHER HAND BRITAIN SUPPLIED WEAPONS TO THE ARGENTINE, WE ARE TOLD, WHICH ARE INFLICT DAMAGE TO BRITISH AIRCRAFT."
