Example text

She sent British troops, aircraft, and warships, including a hastily refitted Queen Elizabeth II, to face the greatest navy in South America and Argentina’s formidable air force. Thatcher’s outnumbered troops were fighting hand-to-hand to reclaim the islands. Five British warships had been sunk, and victory was by no means in hand. Reagan noted that his plan called for Galtieri’s troops to abandon the islands. Once again, Thatcher dismissed his argument, and Reagan grew ever more defensive: “Margaret, but I thought that part of this proposal .

Now you’ve put all your people up there to retake it, and someone suggested that a contact could come in. ” “No, no,” Reagan replied. “Although, Margaret, I have to say I don’t think Alaska is a similar situation . ” “More or less so,” she snapped. ” No, indeed. When the unpopular junta of General Leopoldo Galtieri decided to seize the Falklands in an attempt to restore national pride and divert the Argentine people’s attention from an ongoing economic crisis, Thatcher’s military advisers counseled restraint.

Two years into her tenure as prime minister, the Iron Lady had proven what she was made of. Thatcher’s popularity at home skyrocketed, and her Conservative government won a resounding victory in the 1983 elections. While the Falklands War demonstrated Thatcher’s courage and faith in her nation, it also showcased her formidable political skills. When the war began, her economic policies, which were centered on austerity and reigning in the powerful unions, seemed to be failing, and her approval rating had dropped to as low as 23 percent.
