Apparently, the current defense forces for the Falklands consists of four Typhoons, a destroyer and a 500-man detachment from the British Army. Plus, you can figure that there's probably one nuke submarine lurking in the area.
There are no carrier forces. Nor is there a long-range bomber force.
While it's more than was available to defend the islands in 1982, I wonder if it's enough to dissuade a politically arrogant and militarily stupid Argentina.
