I mean, true enough, and there's a bit of fishing and a bit of oil there. And a link to the Arctic, for the Brits. But I'll eat an oxblood Doc Martin if the enormous riches that every Argentine swears lie just to the left of the Falklands are actually there.
So far, most of their wealth has been theoretical. Frozen methane deposits? Well, eh, maybe useful, at some point. Perhaps.
