    Falklands Sovereignty And the 1982 Invasion
    When Argentina attempted to assert its sovereignty over the Falkland or Malvinas Islands, the Argentinian generals seem to have expected political support from the Third World against Great Britain, the archetypical colonial power. One reason that much of the international community reacted negatively was the perception that the Argentinian junta was more concerned with extending its rights over adjacent territory than with carrying out the responsibility of governing the inhabitants of the Falklands, who seemed thoroughly dismayed at the prospect of Argentinian rule.(Law, Power and The Sovereign State, The Evolution and The Application of The Concept of Sovereignty, Fowler M.R. & Bunck J.M., Pennsylvania State University Press, 1995, p 12 -13).
