    After Libya, it's time to help Syrians now. With all that we have.

    @Andreas: Libya was a disaster, we helped al qaeda and the taliban gain control of the country and if we help out in Syria we'll be doing the same there. The "Arab Spring" was never about freedom. It was always about al qaeda, the taliban and the muslim brotherhood gaining control of as much of the middle east as they possibly could.
