Less than a week after asking for a divorce from the European Union, Britain is talking war.The latest spat was sparked by draft Brexit negotiating guidelines drawn up by the EU, which said no future agreement between Britain and the bloc would apply to Gibraltar unless both the U.K. and Spain agreed. Officials in Gibraltar accused Spain of using Brexit to force negotiations on the status of the territory, against the wishes of the 32,000 Gibraltarians, who overwhelmingly want to remain British.Some pro-Brexit voices in Britain went farther.Britain retook the islands – known as the Malvinas to the Argentines – in a brief war that killed 649 Argentine troops, 255 British soldiers and three islanders.That would require a special deal for Gibraltar once Britain leaves the EU single market and ends automatic free movement of people from other EU nations.
