Ignoring the political and diplomatic angle -
Looking at the political and diplomatic angle - why does Britain need
the Falklands? They are tiny islands over 6,000 miles from Britain,
and about 100 miles from another country.
More like 400 miles...
There is no significant
economic or strategic reason for Britain to own the Falklands, it is
just a vestige of 19th century European colonialism.
How about the self determination of the local population ?
