The Falklands were liberated (and that is the word) 30 years ago when Argentina’s illegitimate invasion was foiled. Over 200 servicemen from the UK military lost their lives and more than twice that number of the invaders. The Falklands population was and is overwhelmingly in favor of the ties to the UK. Argentina’s government’s attempt then (and now) to deflect domestic problems by fanning the flames should be condemned. It is to the credit of successive British governments that they have maintained the commitment to the Falklands, a strong continuity of principle that deserves praise. This is especially true considering the lukewarm support and even hinderance of other nations who should know better, including the U.S. So here is to those who sacrificed their lives those many years ago.
