Too bad, so sad for the Argies. The Royal Marines and the Paras absolutely kicked their asses despite the fact that the Argies had numerical superiority and lots of time to prepare for the British retaliation.

Its funny how someone trying to steal from you can come up with a story to make themselves feel ‘right’ about it. Then they will even manage to become indignant.
‘The Malvinas’, the Falkland Islands, have never been a territory belonging to Argentina.
Cuba has, in the past, been a territory belonging to the United States, and we have more right to reassert our sovereignty over Cuba than Argentina has over the Falklands.
You also have more right to the Falklands than they do. Seriously.
