    I never heard anything about her after the Reagan era. I don't think most young people even know who she is, so I doubt it will ever become breaking news.

    I doubt it is, but is it a good thing to be one?

    Yeah, she personally called for your arrest.

    Weren't the Falklands British territory that was invaded by Argetina? I cant imagine defending British citizens could be bad in anyway, unless the strategy was bad somehow.

    This isn't really the thread for a full debate on the Falklands. I've made my views clear on that matter in several relatively recent threads.

    It seems appropriate in a discussion about Thatcher, to discuss Thatchers actions.

    Well, I'm not going to debate the Falklands War here. If you want to get into that particular issue, try one of these threads...
