The Falkland War is a Timeline Event that can occur in 1982.
When the event happens, Latin American relations with the EU will be reset as the United Kingdom goes to war with Argentina.
Since the 1800s, Argentina and the United Kingdom have argued over the ownership of the Falkland Islands. In 1982, a military junta in Argentina decided to invade the islands, hoping to ignite nationalist support and divert public opinion away from ongoing human rights abuses by the government. This lead to two months of bitter fighting, eventually resulting in a victory for the United Kingdom. The war strained diplomacy between countries in Latin America and Europe, a majority of whom supported their respective neighbors.
