    Let us start with President Reagan's military defense toughness myth:

    :laugh2: What a joke.

    Sure...on the ultimate test of hawkdom -- the willingness to send U.S. troops into harm's way -- Reagan was no bird of prey. He launched exactly one land war, against Grenada, whose army totaled 600 men. It lasted two days. And his only air war -- the 1986 bombing of Libya -- was even briefer....

    In fact, Reagan was terrified of war. He took office eager to vanquish Nicaragua's Sandinista government and its rebel allies in El Salvador, both of which were backed by Cuba and the Soviet Union. But at an early meeting, when Secretary of State Alexander Haig suggested that achieving this goal might require bombing Cuba, the suggestion "scared the shit out of Ronald Reagan," according to White House aide Michael Deaver. Haig was marginalized, then resigned, and Reagan never seriously considered sending U.S. troops south of the border, despite demands from conservative intellectuals like Norman Podhoretz and William F. Buckley. "Those sons of bitches won't be happy until we have 25,000 troops in Managua," Reagan told chief of staff Kenneth Duberstein near the end of his presidency, "and I'm not going to do it."

    Oh, because a liberal reinvents history, that makes it true!

    Too bad there are too many of us, that remember those days, and it was LIBERALS who were terrified of war.

    Every five minutes they were wringing their hands that Reagan would get us into a war.

    Now you want to lie to people who were born after those times and tell them, it never happened??? :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Yeah, well keep trying!

    Remember when Reagan made the joke in his Christmas Radio speech that he had just declared the Soviet Union illegal and the bombs start dropping in five minutes? Then he said, "Just kidding!"

    I laughed my butt off. That sound like a man afraid of war?

    The Democrats actually made an attack ad over it, claiming this proved Reagan was blood thirsty for war.

    IT FAILED! :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Go take your lies and SIT DOWN!

    No one believes them except Obamabots who feed on lies, and people too young to remember Reagan AND MOST OF THEM DON'T VOTE ANYWAY!

    The French were tougher than Reagan:
    1983 Beirut barracks bombing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In retaliation for the attacks, France launched an airstrike in the Bekaa Valley against alleged Islamic Revolutionary Guards positions. President Reagan assembled his national security team and planned to target the Sheik Abdullah barracks in Baalbek, Lebanon, which housed Iranian Revolutionary Guards believed to be training Hezbollah militants.[20] A joint American-French air assault on the camp where the bombing was planned was also approved by Reagan and Mitterrand. Defense Secretary Weinberger lobbied successfully against the mission, because at the time it was not certain that Iran was behind the attack.

    There was no serious retaliation for the Beirut bombing from the Americans,[21] 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.

    Another liberal lies.

    Oh yeah! We are all going to believe that.

    We can't trust our own eyes and ears on what Obama says.

    We need some lib to "explain" it to us!

    You run with that!

    Reagan defeated the USSR and collapsed their empire, he left them no choice but to complete their takeover of the Democrat Party

    During Reagan the populace was still anti war from Nam.
    Reagan played covert war, which was the cold war version of political control or influence.
    He also declared war on drugs which increased governemnt.
    Many in the world did not want war but wr was brought to us through the terorrorists, so reagan went after them.
    Reagan was not affraid toof war(he was in WWII as a soldier), and he like Obama used their power to fight the world that wants us dead.

    Wikipedia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Oh we all believe Wikipedia! :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    and HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Reagan's main foreign policy thrust was not directed at the Middle East. The main thrust of his foreign policy was against THE SOVIET UNION!

    Remember them????????

    I sure do!

    So keep lying.

    I'll keep laughing!
