Speaking of which, your quotes of the day:
“Two of our planes (24) had been shot down. One pilot parachuted and had been recovered. The other 2 is the 2nd plane parachuted in hostile zone--we've heard one was machine-gunned but we've also heard both are prisoners. We're trying to get a confirmation & will open negotiations for their return.” (President Ronald Reagan, diary entry regarding U.S. air strike on Syrian forces in Lebanon, December 4, 1983)

“I do not see any obtainable objectives in Lebanon[...]the longer we stay there, the harder it will be to leave.” (John McCain, on the U.S. mission in Lebanon, 1983)
