I can see the Maldives from my house.

POTUS Barak Hussein Obama brought up the islands that were the scene of a short war between Great Britain and Argentina in 1982 during a speech he gave in Cartagena, Columbia on April 16. Unfotunately, instead of referring to them as the "Malvinas", as the Argentines do, or the Falklands, as the British do, he called them the "Maldives", a group of islands off the coast of India.
