Now what the Brits do is up to them. If they want to give them up or not but they pretty much asserted control over the island.
The UK then was far more financially stronger than it is currently. I would suspect that now, decades later the war wouldn't go as easily for the UK. That's just my opinion... it's not so much also that the UK is weaker, but most likely Argentina is stronger...
If I were to bet on another conflict, I would say Argentina most likely would win it, they can hit it with air support locally rather than having to send carriers across the planet to get there.
Of course it wasn't Bush's fault, the mission was accomplished.
