    Let's hope that Hollywood USA doesn't attempt to re-write history;
    this story is rich enough in its own right,
    and we can do without yet another American media spin on world events.

    Thats been my fears also.
    Hollywood changes history for sensationism as we all know.
    l'm surprised that they didn't try to make it an American liberation of the Falklands! Give it another 100 years & they might!
    (100 years from now & the Argentines will be still bleating about “illegal occupation” , “pirats” , “squatters” etc & STILL they won't have the Falklands!)

    I can just hear the dialogue now....“That Thatchernator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever!! Until you are dead”

    I've never voted tory but I have to admit although some of her decisions were unpopular this country UK needed her and she was certainly the right person to be in charge in 1982. No sane person in UK doubts her decision to defend the right of Falklanders to choose their Government was the right one.
