The Longer View

June 1982
National Review;6/11/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 11, p674
The article focuses on Falklands war between Argentina and Great Britain. The Argentine regime has been making vague utterances about the cause of the war. Great Britain is holding on in the Falklands in the sequel to victory. It would be a strategic tragedy if and when Great Britain manages to expel the Argentine forces. The political imperative emerging is to dissuade the Argentinians from allying with the Soviets.
