Hail to the Iron Lady

Twenty-five years on, the lady's still not for turning.

Baroness Thatcher drew parallels between the Falklands conflict and British deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan today during an emotional broadcast to mark the 25th anniversary of the conflict. [Hear her broadcast here.]

Baroness Thatcher in Portsmouth yesterday

In the radio message recorded for the British Forces Broadcasting Service, she said the battle to reclaim the Falkland Islands was a "just" cause.

She added that the struggle against "tyranny and violence" continued today, and that serving troops could draw "hope and strength" from previous victories.

Lady Thatcher's message has been beamed to the islanders and British troops around the world.

God bless you, Mrs. Thatcher.
