my point is that Libya is no longer considered one of the 'bad guys', and they did negotiate with them to get to this point, as opposed to blowing them off the map or starving their people out. Although Reagan tried to assisinate Khadafi , that might have played a part too.
The 'bad guys' just moved their operations elsewhere. Thats the way it is with muslim terrorists. If more decisive action had been taken perhaps more lives could have been saved.
I wouldn't know if the IRA struggle is over for good but I do believe its moved onto the political stage and that there is no real active armed IRA component at this time. what the future holds, who knows. again the point is that negotiations got them to where they are now,... a peaceful solution to a problem that was not being solved by violence.
The underlying problem isn't solved. The hate has existed for generations and is still there.
are you familiar with the USS Liberty?
Yes. I also know you are looking at a site with a very clear agenda. If the goal was "full and accurate information" they'd include a lot more. They're very selective about what they include.
