Fra the Daily Telegraph, 4. april 2012

On April 2nd the British remembered the unprovoked attack on the Falklands in 1982. But that date should also be remembered for the unprovoked attack by the Royal Navy under the command of Lord Nelson on Copenhagen in 1801. By attacking a country ruled by a grandson of George III the British assured that Denmark was in no position to resist the advances of Napoleon.
So while the fight in 1982 was for a just cause and the result deserves to be upheld in international law, it should not be forgotten that Britain once acted as the international bully.
