No. That's beyond stupid. Argentina invaded the territory of another nation, and was soundly and justly rebuffed in turn. It was not theirs to claim, and to suggest otherwise evinces a detachment from reality further indicated by your insistence that u r gud at histry.

No it does not. Proximity is meaningless. You know what DOES have the most meaning? What the people actually living there want. They're perfectly fine with the Brits, soooo yeah.

Not so strong if its entire navy and a respectable-sized occupation force were WIPED OUT by Britain after its own navy came. The Falklands were British before that time for almost 150 years consecutively, and nobody there actually wanted Argentine rule. Even so, if Argentina had won the Falklands War, I would agree to the islands being Argentine. However, they lost, and losers don't get consolation prizes. Maybe Argentina can try again in a couple decades, although I imagine the result would be the same.

B: the war was started by Argentina
C: Any nation has the right to defend its soil against foreign anvasions
D: Even then, the British waited - painstakingly so - until an actual intimation of war had been received from the Argentines, so as to observe international law to the last letter.

Uh huh, the avid history buff that I am, I don't have any idea about history(!). Also, I am completely compos mentis, and I know that the Falklands belong to the UK.

If proximity means that one claim overrides another, then someone better tell the USA that Alaska belongs to Canada...
