Mark Steyn, insightful as always, over at National Review. Of all of the foreign policy gaffes SWMNBN has made, the least understandable is the call for Great Britian and Agentina to negotiate over the Falklands. IMHO, Mrs. Thatcher definitively closed that subject when she sent the fleet to the South Atlantic possession to clear it of Agentine invaders. I still recall her words in the House of Commons a day or so after the Agentine invasion: "The people of the Falklands may be few in number but they have the right to live in peace and determine their own destiny. Their way of life is British and their allegience is to the Crown." In other words: "I'm coming and hell is coming with me."

The Falkland Islands have had a continious British presence since the 1830's. The Falklanders are British citizens and have voted to maintain allegience to the Crown.

There is nothing to negotiate.
