I can well imagine Ronald Reagan doing it. Sure.
Reagan was the guy who sent 7,000 Marines and Army Rangers
down to Grenada to round up 200 Cuban construction workers.
That publicity stunt got 17 American troops killed...by
friendly fire.
ho hum, another lie.

The Invasion of Grenada, codenamed Operation Urgent Fury, was a 1983 United States-led invasion of Grenada, a Caribbean island nation with a population of about 91,000 located 100 miles (160 km) north of Venezuela, that resulted in a U.S. victory within a matter of weeks. Triggered by a bloody military coup which had ousted a four-year revolutionary government, the invasion resulted in a restoration of constitutional government. It was controversial due to charges of American imperialism, Cold War politics, the involvement of Cuba, the unstable state of the Grenadian government, the illegality under international law and Grenada's status as a Commonwealth realm. Media outside the U.S. covered the invasion in a negative outlook despite the OAS request for intervention (on the request of the U.S. government), Soviet and Cuban presence on the island and the holding of American medical students at the True Blue Medical Facility.

The U.S. Army's Rapid Deployment Force (1st, 2nd Ranger Battalions and 82nd Airborne Division Paratroopers), U.S. Marines, U.S. Army Delta Force and U.S. Navy SEALs and other combined forces consisted of the 7,600 troops from the United States, Jamaica, and members of the Regional Security System (RSS)[3] defeated Grenadian resistance after a low-altitude airborne assault by the 75th Rangers on Point Salines Airport on the southern end of the island while a Marine helicopter and amphibious landing occurred on the northern end at Pearl's Airfield shortly afterward.

The invasion, which commenced at 05:00 on 25 October 1983, began when forces refuelled and departed from the Grantley Adams International Airport on the nearby Caribbean island of Barbados before daybreak en route to Grenada.[16] It was the first major operation conducted by the U.S. military since the Vietnam War. Vice Admiral Joseph Metcalf, III, Commander Second Fleet, was the overall commander of U.S. forces, designated Joint Task Force 120, which included elements of each military service and multiple special operations units. Fighting continued for several days and the total number of U.S. troops reached some 7,000 along with 300 troops from the OAS. The invading forces encountered about 1,500 Grenadian soldiers and about 700 Cubans.

None took any actual part in the fighting.[17] Some of the "construction workers" were actually a detachment of Cuban Military Special Forces and combat engineers.[18]

No proof of any "lies" but a lot of pro-Raygun bullshit there. Granada was an unnecessary embarrassment to the U.S., just an excuse for ol' man Ray-gun to whip up another erection by waving the flag and making the Pentagon feel better.

Ho-hum...More bullsh*t from the big bullshi**er.

However:

Reagan said that US forces found "a complete base of weapons and communication equipment which makes it clear that a Cuban occupation of the island had been planned.[One warehouse] contained weapons and ammunition stacked almost to the ceiling, enough to supply thousands of terrorists.[Grenada was] a Soviet-Cuban colony being readied as a major military bastion to export terror and undermine democracy, but we got there just in time." New York Times, 10/28.

But: "[In the warehouse] that contained most of the weapons, there were only five mortars to be seen, one recoilless rifle, one Soviet-made quadri-barrelled anti-aircraft gun, and two Korean-vintage British Bren guns on display" &#65533; The Guardian (London), 10/31.

This included "a number of antiquated guns, including rifles manufactured in the 1870s" &#65533; New York Times, 11/1.

About the airport in Granada:

Reagan's claim that it was the Soviet Union
behind the coup and was going to take over
the airport as an extension of Soviet influence
in the Western Hemisphere. Huge lie by Reagan.

Reality:

The excavation is being done by a Florida company and the communications work is being done by British multinational corporation. The airport was being built to civilian specifications and lists a number of technical characteristics of a military airport/base which the new airport would not have.

The airport is being funded by nations including Canada, Mexico, and Venezuela. As for the length of the runway, at least five other Caribbean tourist islands such as Barbados have similar-sized or larger airfields yet do not possess air forces.

Sorry to burst your little Reaganite bubble
of pure propaganda.

Hint pookie, a base is not a warehouse. The warehouse would have been for overflow. With only 2100 cubans, soviets and those of Granada there wouldn't be crates and crates of weapons in storage. They would be in the field.

A real run-up to Bush II's invasion of Iraq due to the "presence of WMD," wasn't it?

Thanks for the info, I'd forgotten that little nugget of truth...:)

AND THAT is why she suddenly passed away (accidental morphine OD?)on the eve of this piece of garbage's nomination.
Obama was born 100% Brit in Kenya before his adoption as Barry Soetoro in Indonesia.
The Hawaiian Birth Certificate is forged and his Connecticut Social Security number is stolen.
His biological father was commie/pornographer Frank Marshall Davis and his mother Stannie was a pornstar.
He never was an American citizen much less a "natural-born Citizen" as defined and understood by our founders.
It was a worldwide fraternal organization which put this bisexual usurper in the Whitehouse to usher in their NWO.

"The American military claims the discovery of documents showing that "the Cubans were planning to put their own government in Grenada" The Guardian (London), 10/29.
But: The documents "were not a real find" CIA Director William Casey, quoted four years later by Bob Woodward

The American military claims that missile silos were being built in Grenada, and that there were 1,600 Cubans on the island, almost all professional soldiers.
But: There were 784 Cubans in Grenada, including 636 construction workers, mostly in their forties and fifties (mainly volunteer labor for the tourist airport), 105 social workers (doctors, dentists, nurses, public health workers, teachers, etc.), and 43 military personnel. 84 of these people were killed or wounded in the US invasion. Cuban government lists were accepted later by the United States

Three days after the invasion the deputy White House spokesperson resigns, citing "damage to his personal credibility".
Officials of the Reagan administration acknowledge that in their effort to rally public support for the invasion of Grenada, they may have damaged the Government's credibility by making SWEEPING CHARGES about Soviet and Cuban influence on the island without so far providing detailed evidence."
