"…to the shores of Tripoli." America's first war against radical Muslims was more than 200 years ago.

Why are U.S. Marines called Leathernecks? When they were fighting the Muslim pirates in Tripoli (now Libya), they had to protect their necks from the Muslims who would try to behead them.

Too bad Thomas Jefferson isn’t our President today. He knew how to kick some serious Muslim butt.
