Europe, explained
 

The 30th anniversary of the Falklands War between Britain and Argentina continues to cause rumbles. As I've mentioned here before, Sean Penn has weighed in and Prince William has recently been deployed there with the RAF causing Argentine hackles to be raised.

Now comes this very interesting poll by ICM for The Guardian.  The headline? 61 percent of Britons say, "Britain should protect the Falklands so long as the islanders want protecting, no matter what the cost".

Given the war weariness here over Afghanistan it is remarkable that Brits say they would be willing to wage yet another war to defend the Falklands.
