Falklands are British, more military activity

Finn Malone

The Falklands are a British overseas territory that is 300 miles from Argentina and 8,000 miles from Britain. In 1982 Argentina invaded the Falklands and Britain retaliated, sending a large task force to this islands and reclaiming it for Britain. Margaret Thatcher was the prime minister of England during that time, and she amazingly recaptured the islands.

30 years later and the islands are still being debated, Argentina saying that the islands are theres. Of course Britain has put lots of more military there, to protect the islanders from another invasion. But now Britain is putting lots of more military technology there, spending £180,000,000 (or $260,000,000)   they are stationing missiles and 2 more helicopters.
