Holding the Falklands
From Professor F. A. Hayek, FBA
Sir, Though I can well understand that the British Government does not wish to mention this, Argentina ought perhaps to be reminded that no rule of international law would forbid to retort to another military attack on what for 150 years has been under the jurisdiction of Britain by some counter-attack on the geographical source of such bellicose action.
That might well be a more effective protection than turning the Falklands into a fortress. An aggressor has. no right to demand that hostile action be confined to the region he chooses.
