The Beginning Of Suicide Bombings


October 23rd, 2008 marks the 25 year anniversary of the attack on the Marine barracks in Beirut Lebanon.

A fellow blogger has a great article about that first suicide attack. He has even included a letter written by Colonel Timothy J. Geraghty, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired). Colonel Geraghty was the commanding officer of the Marine unit.

I had the link to the other post here, but I think you should at least scroll through the names... the link is at the bottom of the page.

The below list of names is from The Beirut Memorial - Online. There is a wealth of information there.



Remember them.
