Haass

But the popular sentiment is very, very negative.” ~ Tariq Ramadan

So all problems, economic problems and civil war in Africa – previously people fleeing those problems didn’t end up in Europe because Libya policed the Mediterranean.

  51. “At no time in the past, now or in the future has or will Russia take any part in actions aimed at overthrowing the legitimate government.

Falk
  54. “I mean, you can agree or disagree with Iraq or Afghanistan, but by the way, now the great campaigning cause out there is the absence of intervention in Syria. And then in Libya, it’s partial intervention. And that doesn’t really explain why some countries that have literally nothing to do with the interventions in the Middle East end up getting targeted.” ~ Tony Blair

And I’m told there are several more training camps and we’ll likely see more strikes in the coming weeks and months. So the U.S. is watching all this carefully and will strike what they call targets of opportunity whenever they can.” ~ Tom Bowman
