DISASTER: Strategic planners are sacked as British leaders realise having sent units into death trap in Fitz Roy Base and Port Stanley due to lack of city defences.

British leaders surrender as they see their task force destroyed and their possesions on the islands shattered. Success seemed so near, and yet destruction swept over the ill-fated British battalions. Enraged and furious opposition politicians, military leaders, and general civilian population gather in protest in London calling for Thatcher to leave office voluntarily.
Thatcher, refusing to step down, is forced by her own party to sign a peace treaty with Argentina, leaving the Falklands to new owners, while South Georgia remains in British hands. As she is forced out of office she claims that she won a victory in defeat, she showed the world that Britain wouldn't just surrender in face of evil aggression.
She is later recorded to have said in her mental institution:
"So much for nothing."
A last sign of intelligence and thought or a final display of her mental illness?
Galtieri reinstates democratic elections in Argentina, winning as the only eligible candidate and ruling Argentina until the crisis of 1998, when democracy is finally reality again.

...:D

In other words, I fought and suffered a startling defeat, much due to the destruction of city walls in Port Stanley and Fitz Roy Base.
