Begin took Beirut
Galtieri took the union jack
and Maggie over lunch one day
took a cruiser with all hands
apparently to make him give it back

The presumptiveness of just casually “taking” another country! That leaves deep scars, consider how the Dutch continue to feel about the Germans. But the Dutch scars weren’t so deep that retaliatory attacks have been launched.
