As we approach the 25th anniversary of the Malvinas/Falklands War, Yanqui Mike has done a nice job summing up the history of the conflict, which for most of us has been lost in a fog of unlearnt history. One of history's many depressing, useless wars (memorably taken to celluloid in Iluminados por el fuego), it was once memorably described by Jorge Luis Borges as "a fight between two bald men over a comb." Amen.
