THIS is how long we've been at war

23 Oct 1983  --  Beirut, Lebanon

Twenty two years ago tomorrow 220 American Marines, 18 American Sailors, and 3 American Soldiers were murdered by Islamic Terrorists. Ronald Reagan got a lot of things right during his presidency, but on this he screwed up royally. Instead of doing some serious ass kicking, he pulled our troops out of Lebanon. The rest is history. For all of George Bush's faults, and he definitely has some big ones, at least he has sense enough to understand that showing fear in the face of evil is an open invitation for things to get worse. We didn't start it, but we're finally going to finish it.

Blackfive and Alan Gray have more. Hat tip: Michelle Malkin.

Wow, Bill, I thought I was the only one who felt that way about Reagan. I completely agree with you!

Hi Bill, tracked with Beirut, October 23, 1983

My brother LCPL Stephen Spencer died in Beirut that day some 22 years ago. He wrote letters home to us prior to the attack stating that the media was ying about the true "mission" that they were supposedly out to fulfill. Reagan set our guys up to be sitting ducks and then when they were slaughtered he put his tail between his legs and ran. If Reagan would have kicked the Iranians ass in 1983 I truly believe that 911 would never have happened. Now a lawsuit against the Iranians to pursue $2.6 billion in damages has been thwarted by our own government to keep the funds from being taken from Iran. Yet we paid out damages to Iran for the Airbus deaths? Why should we be paying the Iranians for the loss of their lices and not get what is deserved for the losses of our people?
