We toppled Gadaffi and Saddam. Only difference is Bush cost us 37,000 of OUR children’s lives. Obama cost us none.
Both countries have weak leaders and are in deep do-do.
Haftar sounds like Sisi and has a similar background. They need a strong and maybe brutal leader. He may be the answer.
Remember pre-Franco Spain? He was tough and brutal, but brought dozens of warring provinces together and created one nation.
