I agree Jim … but be careful. I have been DH'd for similar or even less in the past. No mention of using WMDs on people directly. Not my rules but the "managements' " … peace

And may those Marines, Sailors, etc. RIP. The Syrians and Persians supported the precursor to Hezbollah in this attack. The Shia' leader from Lebanon, al Mugnia (sp.?) of this terrorist attack. Was killed in a car bombing years later, IIRC. It appears in was not from US operatives, etc. But a rival faction. Of course if the US or Mossad did have anything to do with it, it's probably still classified ?

However years after that his son, following in his daddy's foot steps, also a terrorist. Was kill off too, I forget just how. Could have been another faction, Mossad or possibly the US working with the Mossad. Or maybe an airstrike ?

May neither of them RIP … in very, very a hot place … I'd hope/imagine … evil grin
