With just over 3,000 inhabitants, this small island archipelago in the South Atlantic recently made it back into the headlines, as Argentina and the U.K. dispute sovereignty issues surrounding oil exploration by a British firm. Known in English as the Falkland Islands and in Spanish as Las Malvinas, we want to look at why this little-known place brought two influential nations to war in 1982 — a conflict that now threatens to reignite. Martin Savidge hosts Juanita Brock and Professor Maria Victoria Murillo to discuss -- Falklands history: 1982 war, Argentinian claims, British control; Current dispute: Nationalism, oil resources, trade relations; U.S./Big Picture: Hillary’s visit, Latin American diplomacy, American intervention.
