Herself a lawyer by background, she meticulously followed UN procedure, always citing its resolutions in her speeches. When told she could not shoot down enemy civilian planes on intelligence watch, she did not do so.
There were none of the dodgy dossiers and brow-beaten lawyers of Tony Blair's Iraq war.
Delhi to Argentina
Thatcher admitted in her memoirs that she fell for the military cast of mind. Soldiers did not scheme and mutter against her. They stood to attention in her presence, gave her straight advice and carried out orders without question.
She particularly admired the calm advice of Lewin as defence chief. He knew he was doing more than winning back a colony, he was winning back the Royal Navy from Nott and Thatcher. Today's extravagant carrier programme is his memorial. The glow of victory was to conceal how desperately close was the Falklands war.
Had Argentinian planes bombed supply and troop ships rather than warships, a land operation could have become logistically impossible.

The taskforce's heavy lift helicopters were all lost when the Atlantic Conveyor was sunk. Despite the performance of the Harrier jump jets, the landing was made without air superiority. Nor could it rely on the foolishness of the enemy in garrisoning the islands with poorly trained conscripts and without attack helicopters.
The conclusion of most defence analysts is that the Argentinians should have won this war, and had they awaited the south Atlantic storms of June they probably would have done. The most controversial British decision, the sinking of the Argentinian cruiser, Belgrano, was at the time hardly in doubt.
Argentina had a battle fleet at sea, including a carrier force armed with Exocet missiles. The odds were heavily on its side. To have left its navy roaming the ocean off the islands, with planes and missiles able to pick off the taskforce, would have been extraordinary. After the sinking, the Argentinian carrier group retreated to port and played no part in the war.
Even so, Thatcher did not authorise any attack of military bases on the Argentinian mainland. Victory was finally achieved on 14 June, when the dejected Argentinian garrison surrendered in Port Stanley. Thatcher's reaction was one of exhausted relief. She was drained, not least by sitting up at night writing personal letters to bereaved families.
The war had been no great political gamble, because she had no option, but the military gamble was awesome. It was a hole that remained gaping three decades later, as service chiefs constantly lobbied for "Falklands-style" capability, and politicians felt they had to capitulate. The nation drank deep of an experience it had not enjoyed since The victory dragged Thatcher's leadership from the brink of collapse. She won global celebrity, in both the United States and the Soviet Union, and 10 points were added to her poll rating.
She was at last in the lead over Labour. The emergent Social Democrats never recovered. Thatcher wrapped herself in the flag, denouncing all sceptics and crudely boasting the renaissance of the British people as a world power against dictatorship. She received a further boost when the Argentinian dictator, General Galtieri, was replaced by a rudimentary democracy.
If war had brought out Thatcher's best features, victory brought out many of her worst, in particular intolerance of those who talked back.

But it gave her the confidence and political strength to press ahead with a programme that was otherwise inert. Her manifesto had been "wet" in content and tone. She had begun to balance the budget, but spending was still rising. The unions had not been confronted.

There had been almost no privatisation. The IRA was still on the march. Thatcherism was, as yet, unknown. The Falklands changed everything. The miners were confronted, leftwing local government crushed, Europe riled and universities humbled. And next year will mark a special occasion: We will be celebrating 70 years of bilateral relations and friendship between Argentina and India.
We both embrace the same values of democracy, pluralism and tolerance and believe in development as the key to a better future. We have a great opportunity ahead. India and Argentina had signed a preferential trade agreement PTA in Has it helped the two countries to enhance economic ties? The Framework Agreement for the creation of a Free Trade Area between Mercosur Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay and the Republic of India, signed in Juneprovides the reciprocal granting of tariff preferences as a first step towards the signing of a free trade agreement.
In this framework, Mercosur and India entered into a Preferential trade Agreement PTA ingranting preferential access margins of 10 per cent, 20 per cent and per cent to Indian products and products originating in Mercosur. Since then, and taking into account the relatively modest coverage of the PTA, Mercosur and India started negotiations inin order to expand it by interchanging wish lists. In both sides have presented their lists, and we all are still working on the analysis of the same.
It is important to mention that, despite some difficulties we are facing in the process of expanding the coverage of the agreement, the bilateral commerce has been increasing over the last few years, which shows the great potential of the commercial relation.
Some of the products our countries export to India the most, have shown a comparative advantage in terms of tariffs, which helps to enhance the ties. Nevertheless, the intention is to extend the agreement also to sanitary and phytosanitary issues, technical barriers to trade and origin certificates.
We are also proud to share that the PTA between Mercosur and India is of particular importance because it was the first commercial agreement of this type signed by Mercosur with a non-Latin American country.
Argentina is a member of Mercosur. It has an extraordinary potential that must be fully unleashed. The negotiations for expanding the coverage of the PTA, as mentioned before, will help us in this regard.
Why is India not being admitted to this global nuclear cartel? It is a sensible issue as it involves nuclear non-proliferation and the transfer of dual-use technologies. And we have a bilateral Agreement for Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy in place, which we hope can be implemented soon. India and Argentina share the view that reforms are necessary so the United Nations can reflect the world order and also share our commitment to multilateralism.
But we differ when we come to the issue of how these reforms should be implemented. Argentina, for instance, supports the idea that the Security Council should be reformed, but not on the basis of additional permanent members. What is being done to improve air connectivity between India and Argentina? There are conversations underway in order to sign an Air Connectivity Agreement between our national airline, Aerolineas Argentinas, and Air India.
I believe it will be ready soon. This will hopefully allow connecting easily through Europe. Of course, when we speak about air connectivity, we have to always take into account that our countries are 15, km away from each other. It takes at least 20 hours to reach one point from the other. But I believe that the agreement, once in place, will makes things easier.
