“The 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine Beirut compound and of the nearby French paratroopers’ building was a declaration of war by radical Islamists against Western influence in the Middle East. It marked the beginning of an asymmetrical war, one that continues to this day.
The Marines in Lebanon, under the command of Col. Tim Geraghty, realized the magnitude of the challenge and the seriousness of the dangers this meant to the security of the free world. Yet it took the politicians in Washington 18 more years to reach the same conclusions.
