Re: I do remember plenty of criticism

About bengazi. Hearing and multiple public discussions but I never heard much about reagan and beruit. Perhaps the repubs were not about much or Fox news weren't on the scene but Rush Limbaugh was and Roger Ailes and they both had strong vocal imput even back then. So then next time you hear people chiding Obama and Hillary you can ask about Reagan and Bush sr. See if any repubs remember it.

Yes the British were there a long time ago and the Russians more recently BUT your country was the last on trumped up excuses.

So your country obviously did not learn from history.

Of course you were blinded by revenge, revenge against anyone not necessarily the guilty ones.

 

So it therefore falls in your lap now.

It was a general from your country that ordered the airstrike that took out gaddafi's grand kids. It was your country that drug Obama into libya.

Re: Actually Don

You have to admit that in "1983" we were still innocent babes in the woods compared to today.  We were still trying to follow the letter of the law.  9/11 supposedly gave us the "right" to take our kid gloves off.   But, to argue "the Marines didn`t have any bullets for their guns and that`s Reagan`s fault" is a cheap low blow.  Bullets wouldn`t have done much against a cowardly sneak attack with truck bombs.

The marines didn't radio they were under attack and need help. The consulate in benghazi did but were told no.
