It's Thanksgiving week! I trust you're all managing to find creative ways to deal with the socialist tyranny that's driving the Obama famine this year, emptying our supermarket shelves of their usual bounty.

I've got filibuster business I want to wind up today, plus a few passing observations still to make on Jill Kelley, the Hostess bust-out, and the widening conservative panic sweeping small, isolated pockets of gated America.

We're LIVE at 9 a.m. ET with Kagro in the Morning, thanks to

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    •  Compare/contrast: Reagan in Lebanon vs. (0+ / 0-)

      Black Eisenhower in Libya.

      We missed the anniversary -- 23-OCTOBER-1983 -- because of the election. People say they love Reagan. You have to be ignorant about what happened in Lebanon to keep that going.

      Benghazi, 4. Beirut, 392. Tough Lessons for "Empire Light" Going Forward

      Both presidents made decisions to take sides in civil wars. Reagan overrode his ambassador's warning that allowing Sharon to invade with IDF in 1982 would destabilize the Lebanese government, causing a civil war. Reagan lost 241 at the Marine barracks, 329 overall to thermobaric truck bombs.

      Amazing story when you get into the details. Misses the big stuff, however. Surprising how McFarlane's "Peacekeeper" angle never grows old and the realities of Lebanon in 1983 go lost:

      -- America was at war with Iran in 1983. Billions of dollars in American military equipment were being used by our ally, Saddam Hussein, to kill Iranians (1980-1988.)
      -- Ariel Sharon had Israel's IDF invade southern Lebanon in 1982. The stated aim was to knock out Arafat and Fatah.
      -- A civil war between Christians and Muslims ensued within the year following Sharon's invasion.
      -- American Ambassador Dillon opposed this invasion on grounds that the resulting political shocks would destabilize Lebanon. On 18-April-1983 the American embassy in Beirut was hit with a 1-ton truck bomb from just below the ambassador's office. The front of the building pancaked, killing 63.
      -- While the Marines had indeed arrived as United Nations Peacekeepers, Robert McFarlane as Assistant National Security Adviser to President Reagan, had gotten approval to have the USS New Jersey open fire on Muslim positions. That converted American forces to combatants on the Maranist side. You're not "Peacekeepers" when you're firing 2700-pound artillery rounds into Muslim villages.
      -- Six months after the embassy bombing, the Marine barracks was undefended. A 20-ton thermobaric PETN-and-liquid-butane weapon turn that 4-story concrete building to a 1-story wreck. France and 10 days later Israel in Tyre were also hit. 329 total dead.
      -- Ronald Reagan never admitted fault. Never had the incompetents fired and/or court martialed -- instead blaming not the C.O. or the Pentagon brass but a lowly duty-roster guy who had been paralyzed. Presidential cowardice is hard to admit for the "St. Ronnie" true believers.
      Reagan then turned tail and abandoned the Maranists. Similar to Bush41 and his Iraqis after the Gulf War. Pair of cowards. Compared to those two: Thank God for Black Eisenhower !
