    For the purposes of so-called historical perspective, I won't include recent presidents.

    Trick Lib Question of Reagan
    March 28, 2008

    CALLER: Ronald Reagan, why did he never respond to the Marine barracks bombing in Lebanon in 1983?

    BREAK TRANSCRIPT

    RUSH: By the way, to answer the guy's question, "Why didn't Reagan respond?" He did. It's one of the most underreported aspects in world history. Amir Taheri wrote about it on April 18th, 2007, in a publication called Gulf News. Basically, Reagan sunk Iran's navy, if I could just sum this up. We sunk Iran's navy. The attacks from Lebanon came from Iran, as they still do to this day. We sunk Iran's navy, but we didn't talk about it much then because that would have made us look mean, and the mullahs didn't talk about it because they didn't want the world to know their navy had been sunk, but it happened.
    END TRANSCRIPT

    Operation Praying Mantis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Operation Praying Mantis was an April 18, 1988 attack by U.S. naval forces in retaliation for the Iranian mining of the Persian Gulf and the subsequent damage to an American warship.

    In short, Iran lost one major warship and a smaller gunboat.

    Agreed.

    Ronald Reagan was a law breaker and committed Treason.

    Possibly the most over hyped president of all-time if I may split hairs. He's not the most over-rated to me though.
