    Gee, that Clinton was a real wimp...

    1983 Beirut barracks bombing

    In the attack on the American 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 Vietnam War's Tet Offensive, 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.

    On February 7, 1984, President Reagan ordered the Marines to begin withdrawal from Lebanon. This was completed on February 26, four months after the barracks bombing; the rest of the Multinational Force was withdrawn by April.

    U.S. Vice President George H. W. Bush toured the Marine bombing site on October 26 and said the U.S. "would not be cowed by terrorists."

    In fact, there was no serious retaliation for the Beirut bombing from the Americans, besides a few shellings.

    If the US was not sticking its nose where its not wanted US troops would not be getting killed. Lets face it the activities of the US and others in the ME have nothing to do with freedom, security, terrorism or democracy but it has a lot to do with oil and being the lackies of Israel.

    The US Government and its people could not care less about the people of the ME and before Iraq 1 most Americans did not even know where the ME was, even that cretin Bush could not point it out on a map.

    guess we felt the same way about the "people" of Bosnia and Somalia too, right pubic?-- like when Clinton "cut and run" when we lost a few troops to the "skinnys" in Mogadishu, yes?-- i guess we really hate the joooos as well, yes?-- we just toss them cash so they can keep the Palestinians down-- as usual i'm sure the American people are grateful for u pointing out how stupid they are in geography-- speaking of geography, arent' u the guy who doesn't have the "nads" to tell us where he's from?-- i thought i scraped u off the bottom of my shoe back in the wee hours of EST and here u are again, popping up like a bad penny-- Regards, probus
