One is Carter; one is Papa Obama
hard to tell the difference
In 1983, when Reagan was president, terrorists killed 241 American servicemen: 220 Marines, 18 Navy personnel and three Army soldiers. The deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since the Battle of Iwo Jima of World War II and the deadliest single attack on Americans overseas since World War II.
Ronbo Reagan CUT and RAN.
1983 Beirut barracks bombing (October 23, 1983 in Beirut, Lebanon)
Suicide bombers detonated each of the truck bombs. In the attack on the American Marines barracks, the death toll was 241 American servicemen: 220 Marines, 18 Navy personnel and three Army soldiers, along with sixty Americans injured, representing the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since the Battle of Iwo Jima of World War II, the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States military since the first day of the Tet Offensive during the Vietnam War, and the deadliest single attack on Americans overseas since World War II.
U.S. President Ronald Reagan called the attack a "despicable act" and pledged to keep a military force in Lebanon.
There was no serious retaliation for the Beirut bombing from the Americans, besides a few shellings. In December 1983, U.S. aircraft from the USS John F. Kennedy and USS Independence battle groups attacked Syrian targets in Lebanon, but this was ostensibly in response to Syrian missile attacks on American warplanes.
Multi-service ground-support units were withdrawn from Beirut after the attack on the Marine barracks due to retaliatory threats.
In the meantime, the attack boosted the prestige and growth of the Shi'ite organization Hezbollah.
Right couldn't agree more!
But the Major major difference is Reagan NEVER let his ego or arrogance come before his consideration of the United States!
Reagan NEVER encouraged businesses to go bankrupt!
Reagan NEVER discouraged Americans.. HE ENCOURAGED Americans..
AND ONE thing for SuRE...
REAGAN would NEVER sacrifice American soldiers by using words like this:
Obama said U.S. military "air-raiding villages killing civilians"!
That was said BEFORE Obama became President and to me that was the such a traitorous statement that I couldn't understand why he wasn't hauled up for TREASON!
The Nazi's and Soviets both invaded Poland around the same time
as part of their treaty
The Soviets were are WW II allies, were they not...
War makes for strange bedfellows, does it not
Of course the only difference after the war
The Left kept supporting the Soviets
In fact before the war
Too bad FDR said these things:
There seems to be no question that [Mussolini] is really interested in what we are doing and I am much interested and deeply impressed by what he has accomplished and by his evidenced honest purpose of restoring Italy.

I don't mind telling you in confidence that I am keeping in fairly close touch with that admirable Italian gentleman.

Reagan was an idiot...a baffoon. We are lucky he didn't get our country into more trouble than he did.
I like the quote in the pic. It show clearly how stupid that man was.
Damn. Quadaffi helped terrorists plant a bomb on an airplane killing several hundred Americans. And President Obama helped the Libyans finish the job that Reagan started.
In this case, the deed was not done by the government of Libya, but by terrorists within Libya. And the government of Libya not only apoligized, but is actively helping to catch the terrorists.
What you are suggesting would be the same as if we had nuked Dallas, Texas, because President Kennedy was assasinated there.
I find it hard to believe how idiotically bloodthirsty you 'Conservatives' are. You don't care who you kill, just kill somebody.
Difference between Reagan and Obama dealing with Libya
... is Gaddafi still alive - seems Obama finished the job Reagan only threw a bomb at.
After Muammar Gaddafi went along with demands of the US and the West
and diplomatic relations were returned
Even British and Italy did business with Gaddafi
Papa Obama throwing another friend under the bus
for political purposes
what a surprise
Carter had Iran and helped to make it what is today
Papa Obama will be able to look back at Libya and Egypt and
say he did the same
He must be proud
Must be more of that "smart power"
as embassies burn and ambassadors are killed
Really? When did that happen?
