Marine Barracks In Beruit and a dead terrorist

Today on the news, I just saw this news. Many of you may not remember, but back in the 1980s the Marines were stationed in Beruit while trying to help keep the peace. One bright morning, a terrorist parked a truck in front of the building and blew the barracks up, killing over 200 United States Marines.

Well today, that mastermind terrorist was killed in a car bomb. It is an emotional day for Marines everywhere today.

I am writing this because I come from a Marine Corps family dating back to WWI. So, while one should never rejoice in death, I am glad that this terrorist is gone.

God Bless Marines everywhere today, but especially those who were there in Beruit.
