beirut barracks 1983

October 23, 1983.

On that day, 241 U.S. Marines, soldiers, and sailors were murdered as they slept by truck bomb jihadists — who were waging a war on us long before we woke up and started fighting the war on them.

Barack Obama thinks they need more “compassion” and education. He wants to pull out and “end” the war, not win it.

A recipe, in other words, for more Beirut bombings.

Must-read: Commanding officer Col. Tim Geraghty’s remembrance of the Beirut bombings in the NYPost.

From Sgt. Melvin Lopez, Jr. at ArlingtonNationalCemetery.net:

On October 23, 1983 at 6:22 a.m., a large delivery truck drove to the Beirut International Airport where the Marine Barracks was located.

After turning onto an access road leading to the compound, the driver rushed through a barbed-wire fence, passed between two sentry posts, crashed through the gate, and slammed into the lobby of the barracks.

The driver detonated explosives with the power equal to more than 12,000 pounds of TNT. The explosion crumbled the four-story building, crushing service members to death while they were sleeping.

The terrorist attack killed 220 Marines and 21 other U.S. service members who were stationed there to help keep the peace in a nation torn by war.

It was the bloodiest day in the Corps’ history since World War II, when Marines fought to secure Iwo Jima.
