The Falklands, Repeat, Falklands

July 1982
National Review;7/9/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 13, p809
The article focuses on the British victory in the Falkland Islands and its consequences. The United Nations (UN) played a major role in stirring up this conflict in the Falkland Islands. British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has now ruled out any sort of UN trusteeship for the islands, and any sort of Argentine or joint sovereignty is excluded by circumstances for the foreseeable future. Thatcher is riding high politically, her firmness and good fortune in the Falklands getting an added boost from the birth of the baby boy to Princess Diana and Prince Charles.
