On May 17, 1987 the USS Stark was on patrol in the Persian Gulf. On that day Saddam Hussein ordered one of his fighters to fire an Exocet missile at our American ship. The missile hit our ship and 37 Americans died from the attack.
What was Ronald Reagan's response the reader may ask? Nothing, at first. Later his response was to proceed giving Iraq even more weapons.
Can someone please let me know if this is appeasement?
The lesson the Islamo-Fascists learned from President Ronald Reagan was that if you kill Americans then you will be rewarded.
