BBC News - HMS Dauntless: Aboard warship headed for Falklands

"One of the Royal Navy's most advanced and powerful warships, HMS Dauntless, is on its way to Falkland Islands.
The MoD insists it is a routine deployment but the move has drawn criticism from Argentina, which disputes the sovereignty of the islands.
Jonathan Beale reports from on board the vessel."

Argentina should probably drop this issue already. The status of the Falklands isn't going to be changing anytime in the foreseeable future.

Good for Britain. The Argentines are just getting all anxious now that oil has been found down there, but the Falklanders still don't want any part of them.

Argentina was third in line anyways as the UK abandoned the islands and only later reclaimed and resettled them to keep the US for claiming them. Argentine showed up wanting the islands after all that.
