Yesterday, an aniversary of the marine barricks barracks bombing.

Reporting here. an AP feed. The event forced a realization, and surprisingly an admission, by our warrior class that we had no good reason whatsoever to be putting troops in Lebanon with the factional squabbling there having escalated into civil war. It cost lives, but we are not in Syria, there is that decades-later upside.

UPDATE: Hat tip to Jim Bendtsen for the headline spelling error correction. Reader help is appreciated.
