Is there a new Falklands war in the pipeline?

It has begun already - nationalistic jargon in relation to the Falkland Islands.

Prince William just happens to be sent there on the eve of the war's 30th anniversary, the Argentine public feels antagonised and we dismiss it with typical arrogance.

It did seem odd at the time that we went so far, with a large task force, to protect a group of islands that hardly anyone had heard of.

What even fewer people knew back then was that there are oil resources in the South Atlantic, which we are now drilling for. Do you think that played a part in our decision to go?
