Jefferson Did NOT Apologize to the Barbary Pirates (muslims)

paying tribute (aid $$$ by the billions) does not work--

Remember - the new U.S. paid tribute to the muslims (Barbary Pirates) to the tune of 20% of GDP-and our ships were still being attacked and hostages taken-

Jefferson finally took action- sent the Marines (thus the words- Shores of Tripoli)-and the piracy stopped for awhile- when it started again- Madison finished the job!

From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli.
They were called OSS (Over Seas Services) and later named Marines. That line was the making of the Marines Hymn.
Neat - huh, when America was Governed by Real Country Loving Leaders.

Exactly right Carol. They've proven over and over to the west that they don't want to civilize, they simply want to continue their 7th century barbarism, raping small girls, stoning women for being raped and beheading those they're too stupid to argue against.

Unfortunately for us, the west is hell bent on giving them money, aid and everything else to help wage their jihad against us. We are simply nuts.
