The Falkland Islands are a former colony and now an Overseas Territory of Great Britain. However Argentina has contested this claim off and on since 1833. Under its ruling military junta, Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands in 1982, but its forces were defeated after 74 days and forced to surrender by a British military task force.
