The Falkland Islands are a small state within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Despite their size, they are incredibly important. They are so incredibly important that Argentina tried to steal them by sending a fleet of warships and troop transports all the way up to the North Atlantic to conquer them from the British for no apparent reason. Then Margaret Thatcher bombed the crap out of them (with a little help from Brit Para & Marine steel as well). This war has been commonly cited as Pink Floyd's favorite war.
