If you know your beans as regard The Falklands War as well....you will know we could have easily lost it as well....even with all 'our' supposed Military Might.
My feelings are that it was used as a Political Motive......Thatcher was deeply Unpopular at the time......and the War proved a distraction, that with the following 'victory' ensued she got a more tolerant public.....for a few years anyways.
Haven't they found oil there recently? If they have it's not so worthless anymore...
BTW, Alex the Metal Maiden, would probably have a different opinion about the Falklands War...

I am quoting 'some' UK peoples belief's.....
Mine are.....
Although the residents wanted to keep UK 'tickets'...
The war was more about propaganda.....buying votes !!!

Many young people (not any different to any War) lost their lives for Political reasons.
Yes I know there is Oil there now............
Thatcher sold off all our North Sea Gas in the 80's.....we could have been 'self sufficient'

Bar the actual residents......the Falkands means more to the Argies than the Brits.

Me too.
I have a different opinion.

Little Dreamer : Where are you from?

In case of any doubt please refer to Pink Floyd: The Final Cut and the song Como estais amigos from Iron Maiden
