The Wonderful Foreign Policies of President Ronald Reagan In his last debate with President Jimmy Carter in 1980, Ronald Reagan asked the American public: "Is America as respected throughout the world as it was?

Once the PLO left, Israel withdrew from Lebanon and after the PLO fighters left, the U.S. troops followed in suit -However, after international forces left, Lebanese militia, affiliated with Israel, massacred 700 refugees at two camps in mid-September 1982, so Reagan ordered the U.S. forces back ashore -In April 1983, Lebanese terrorists from a group called Hezbollah—which received financial and logistical support from Iran and Syria—detonated a truck bomb in front of the American Embassy in Beirut -on October 23, 1983, terrorists blew up the Marines' barracks at the Beirut airport, killing 241 U.S. servicemen, most of them Marines -Reagan called it, "the saddest day of my presidency…the saddest day of my life." -In February 1984, the surviving Marines were withdrawn to U.S. vessels waiting offshore.
