23. "Argentina's imperial ambitions"?!!?? OHMYGOSH

 

That was early 1980s.

This is the 2010s, 30 years later, and with a seriously reconfigured world scene. I don't really buy all those specious arguments about the self-determination of the Falklanders, especially not when they come from England-apologists.

The new context, as has been pointed out elsewhere, may involve oil. I think that it might also involve the leftward lurch of ALL OF SOUTH AMERICA. The USA has lost its influence in the region, and has re-activated the US Navy's Fourth Fleet to 'Combat Terrorism.' Things are likely to heat up in the future, so the real Empire needs to keep the Poodle's Kennel well stocked.
