    Yeah, I'm surprised none of the conservatives on this thread seemed to know that.

And while the US left Lebanon shortly afterward it wasnt before pounding the hell out of the forces that were responsible with Naval & Aerial bombardment. Your comparison of Obama to Reagan is the biggest whopper here as anyone who has studied the facts knows that they are exactly opposite in there thinking & policies. Please pick up a book & try to learn something before you come here & try to look like you know what you are talking about.
    Wrong. Reagan withdrew the troops out of Lebanon in 1984, just like I said. Over 235 Marines were killed....OVER....."over" means there were more and without looking it up it was close enough to get the point across.

    So Reagan didn't occupy or surrender Lebananon and Obama didn't occupy or surrender Libya. Both were on a peacekeeping mission. Both had embassy's attacked and people were killed. Both were accused by the right of cut and run and surrender during an election year. Like I said, the similarities are uncanny and I'll match my knowledge up against yours anyday of the week, hunny bunny. So bring it on.

    Moot, I think that Conservatives do not feel the need to restate the obvious every couple of days. :-)

    Maybe. But here's another similarity you might find interesting.....calling Obama a Marxist, communist, or socialist is exactly what the racists called Martin Luther King back in the 1960s. It's funny how history has a way of repeating itself, isn't it?

    Moot - I strongly suspect the right wingers who engage in that sort of silly name calling know darn well that Obama is none of those things but its just their way of baiting and trolling.

    Well, you could have fooled me with all their huff and puff talk of staying and fighting to the bitter end just to protect an embassy that was under siege.

    The property the consulate site on is American land.

    Any invasion onto that land is call for extreme force to protect the American lives within....
    Anything less is a faillure to obey a general order, deriliction if duty and cowardice under fire, cort martial offenses and punishable by death.....

    I'm pretty sure that leaving the embassy saved a lot more lives than staying and fighting until the bitter end was the best and wisest option for the diplomats....who are not Marines.

    Well, if they didn't know it before, they do now and have no more excuses to use those terms without showing their true color.

    But that is exactly what they are trying to do and not make any excuses for it it any way shape or form.

    When I see the whole Marx stupidity in play I make a joke about Groucho or Chico or Harpo. The only thing you can do is roll your eyes and make fun of it.

    Are you comparing BHO with MLK???

    Every 50 years or someone calls someone else a Marxist, Communist or Socialist.

    That's really a weird coincidence..

    Although I was alive then I do not recall it. I would have to check but remember that the usual front groups for the communist party of the soviet union provided supporting money.

    I call the current president, the one term Marxist Obama a Marxist because it is who he is. He spent his formative years in the company of Marxists, Communists, socialists, radicals and terrorists. He even says in his ghost written book that he sought out the Marxist professors, the radical feminists and other misfits.
