  • England is defeated in the Falklands War 1982

    What if during the Falklands War Great Britain had been unsuccessful in its attempt to regain the islands from Argentina and had to withdrawal their task force. What could have been the subsequent chain of events?

    The Argentine military dictatorship would have tightened its grip on the country at first. But when you look at the ruinous condition of the Argentine economy those years, it does not look like the Argentine military would last that long in power.

    The Argentines have always had a fascination with strong dictators. Juan Manuel Rosas, Urquiza, Leopoldo Galtieri, Juan Domingo Perón and Jorge Videla among others. Politically and economically that country was a mess and still is today. They have the resources but simply have not installed a social organization which can exploit them for the benefit of everyone.

      Thatchers government falls in 83 or a the the least she has to go within the party. Micheal Foot becomes PM. The unions get a tighter control again with the economic mess that will deliver, our nuclear deterent is on the line. Reagan no longer has as strong ally in terms of pushing the Soviets, instead having a UK premier who is sypmathetic to the Russians...

            This economic picture is almost certainly untrue. The reason is that, regardless of party in power, GDP per Capita has risen constantly since the 60's.

            Losing the deterent would save monies, and perhaps lose GB political standing on the world stage.

              Our economy in the 1970's was a mess. Foot getting in 83 would have re-asserted that trend and the union power that had started to be challenged... I'm not having this revisionsim about the land of milke and honey of the 1970's that Thatcher destroyed. Its utter

                England wasn't involved in the Falklands war.

                  So only Scottish and Welsh troops were committed?











                  I know what you're pointing out with England instead of Britain and such, but whatever.

                  Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
                  I took the one less traveled by,
                  And that has made all the difference.

                        I sure the video's meaning is , the British would come back for the Islands again and again and again.

                            Of course I do, that doesn't excuse getting the name of my country wrong.

                            While my views on the UK are well known, people should, at least make the effort to get its name right.
