"The Beirut Barracks Bombings (October 23, 1983, in Beirut, Lebanon) occurred during the Lebanese Civil War when two truck bombs struck separate buildings housing United States and French military forces—members of the Multinational Force (MNF) in Lebanon—killing 299 American and French servicemen. An obscure group calling itself 'Islamic Jihad' claimed responsibility for the bombings....U.S. President Ronald Reagan called the attack a "despicable act" and pledged to keep a military force in Lebanon. U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, who had privately advised the administration against stationing U.S. Marines in Lebanon, said there would be no change in the U.S.'s Lebanon policy...On February 7, 1984, President Reagan ordered the Marines to begin withdrawing from Lebanon largely because of waning congressional support for the mission after the attacks on the barracks...."

Withdrawing our troops from Lebanon may have been the best decision, but it shows that the claim that Reagan was firm and tough militarily is a myth.

Plus, no one really felt that Reagan didn't care, just that we were naive and didn't protect ourselves well enough. A horribly tragic mistake, but a naively honest one. Hillary comes off as simply not caring, and her own comments to Congress only exacerbated that feeling. And because of how the world has changed, AND the lessons we should have learned from incidents like Lebanon, we should have known better and planned better.

No, socialism just includes commerce, just like every other system ever.Every socialism has adopted capitalism as an economic system because it's sustainable.
This is absurd both because you're talking about a TV show, and because apparently you think people have no need to carry anything on their person besides money.Do you know why people on the Enterprise on Startreck had no pockets in their uniforms? A few centuries from now they have eliminated the need for money.
No, we need to start moving away from classes and entrenched wealth now. Space travel is in the future, egalitarian economics are needed today.You were evidently born a few centuries too early.
You clearly don't listen to the majority of your political allies, then. And you apparently aren't paying attention to basically every metric besides the comfort and enthusiasm of conservatives that says the country has been improving or staying steady for the last six years.Finally, I don't think many people hate Obama. I don't hate him. I just think that his policies are destructive and his presidency has made the country worse.

The Marines were sent to Lebanon in an attempt to bring peace. When the barracks were bombed, it became clear the mission could not be achieved. It took leadership to make the hard decision to realize that and pull out. In Libya, the story is not that 4 people died, it's the PR spin that flowed out after they were killed.
Reagan's negotiations with the USSR, not Russia, have been well documented, as has Gorbachev's thoughts about them and the man he sat across from. Somehow I don't see Ali Khamenei paying his respects at President Obama's funeral.
I will agree that people only see what they want to see. For the majority of Reagans detractors, unless they are older that 50, they only see what they have been told, and taught, to see.
