    Funny thing, during his presidency, the left and the media spewed out all kinds of false claims that Mr Reagan was a war monger. The cold war was won without a single US military soldier losing his/her life in battle with the Soviet Union.
    Trivia question for you,
    Which president had more military deaths occur under his 8 year term, Mr Reagan, Mr Clinton or Mr Bush?

    If you say Clinton, we'll know you fall for stupid neo-con chain emails.

    If Clinton wasn't busy with Monica (I swear I didn't have sexual relations with that woman) and payed closer attention to the "terrorist" at that time Bush's numbers would be even lower.

    I know what the answer is, I asked the question to see if anybody else did.

    You're still wrong. Using the term "Military Deaths" which includes sickness, accidents, self-inflicted, etc., is a clever way to do what's called the polka swingkabob. That Reagan's military happen to have a high accident rate doesn't really make much of a point now, does it?

    Now guide your eye to the column marked 'Hostile action.'
