] I mean, notwithstanding the Monroe Doctrine, there was an Anglo-Argentine war in 1982.
I won't pretend to know much about American history, but I believe the Monroe doctrine bit the dust with Vietnam, didn't it?
Anyway, when it comes to the Malvinas, Constanza, Britain made it quite clear that she wanted no 'help' from anyone- it was to be a Brit-only operation. In terms of the balance of world power, the outcome of the war was going to be of little importance, anyway, so there was no need for the U.S. to get involved there.
