Iran Hard-liners Mark 1983 Attack on U.S. Marines
Thu Dec 2, 2004 10:59 AM ET

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian hard-liners erected a monument Thursday to commemorate a suicide bombing which killed 241 U.S. servicemen in Lebanon in 1983, witnesses said.
A group called the committee of the "Commemoration of Martyrs of the Global Islamic Campaign" held the event at Tehran's Behesht-e Zahra cemetery to praise the attack 21 years ago against the United States, Iran's arch-foe.

"The bombing was a great achievement of Muslims in their fight against America," said its spokesman Ali Mohammadi.

More than 100 others were wounded when a suicide bomber detonated a truck full of explosives at a U.S. Marines barracks at Beirut's international airport. The United States accused the Iran-backed Hizbollah guerrilla group for the bombing.

The Americans were taking part in a multinational effort to halt Lebanon's civil war, although many Lebanese saw the U.S. forces as actively shoring up a pro-Israel, right-wing Christian presidency.

About 200 men and women gathered at the cemetery in southern Tehran. Some dressed as suicide bombers chanted "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" as the stone monument was unveiled.

The group, which has no links to official organizations, in September also placed a symbolic gravestone at the cemetery for two Palestinian suicide bombers who carried out a twin bus bombing that killed 16 Israelis earlier this year.

It announced its existence in June when it started registering volunteers prepared to carry out suicide attacks on U.S.-led forces in Iraq. Iran has strongly condemned the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq.

The group said more than 25,000 "martyrdom seeking" volunteers have so far signed up and one of its members said the registration drive would continue.

"We have been ordered to cover the faces to avoid being recognized when traveling abroad to carry out the attacks," a masked volunteer said at the cemetery.

But the group has said it will only carry out attacks if Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gives the green light.

Iran's deputy interior minister for security affairs, Ali Asghar Ahmadi said Sunday the volunteers would not be allowed to cross Iran's borders. "Such groups are illegal. Such measures will be strongly confronted by Iran," he said.

No, the difference is, we care for collateral damage. Like I said, the difference between us and them, is that they want to kill everyone. They misinterpreted the koran. Freedom fights don't kill people by sending children strapped with bombs into packed areas.

America does have a lot of corruption within its people, and yes, in the past we did a lot of dumb things (remember our whole manifest destiny thing? The native americans?). YEs we were wrong. That doesn't mean its right for other coutnries to do the same. If anything they should try to show that they are better then us by not doign the things we did.

Actually it was the coming together of the pilgrims and the indians. The pilgrims weren't the ones that took em over. Nice try though

Killing soldiers in their beds when you aren't officially at war with them isn't very sporting. It's an act of cowardice. It's like pulling a knife out when you are in the middle of a fist fight.

You act like the indians were innocent little angels. We did some really bad things to them and they did some really bad things to us. I'd call it a draw.

What did the indians possibly due to European immigrants that can compare to displacement and genocide?

Here, check these out too...

I believe, help me out here on this one, we were in Lebanon because Israel invaded and we were with Italy and France as a multi national peace keeping force to kinda tell the Israeli's to back down a bit (had a slaughter problem) and to keep our presence in the region.

I was talking about North American indians, not Central American natives...when settlers moved away from the cities they often got slaughtered by indians. A lot of it happened during the French and Indian war. The settler's primary concern was to build a home and raise a family, not run around killing indians- they didn't have time for that crap.

about the indians


oh please, give me a break. they had been fighting each other off for thousands of years before white man came. the only difference is, white man had the technology it took to win the war for good. Our liberal teachers act like we ruined everything for them. hate to break it to ya but theyve been doing worse shat to eachother long before we came

You apparently have no idea what is going on outside of the United States and the affect it can have.

I still think ****ign with the indians and all that crap we did back then was wrong. However, this is different century. Those muslim extremist rebels-without-causes need to wake up and shut up. If they can live by the simple rule of don't do anything to anyone else you wouldn't want them to do to you, then nobody would have a problem. But when you have groups of people commiting acts of genocide.. Yes, they deserve to haev their kidneys sliced out.

Now the golden rule I mentioned is brough up a lot in the christian faith, but I'm athiest. Think about it.. The religon they are fighting actually started out the same as the hebrew religon and the christian religion.

Who cares by what name you call god. Just don't do bad things, and stop focusing on stuff like ways you can kill the kurds, and start looking at stuff like ways you can make future generations of humans benefit.
