Britain Ready to Humiliate Argentina's Bully
Nile Gardiner, Daily Telegraph
You can spot a bully a mile away. Full of bluster and hot air, they deflate swiftly when confronted and met with force. This is precisely what happened in 1982 to Argentina’s military junta after it decided to invade the Falklands, and was defeated and brought to its knees by the British naval task force sent by Margaret Thatcher. It will happen again, if the regime in Buenos Aires tries to retake or cut off the islands, and Argentina will suffer another national humiliation, from which it will take decades to recover.
