Who started the Civil War? The rebels.

Who fed it? NATO.

Yeah, but

“Arab Spring”

“Arab Spring is all that matters.

Ignore that it led to:
“Summer of Discontent”
which will lead to:
Fall of Civilization
and end up with:
Nuclear Winter

Arming the so-called “rebels” is all just part of 0bama’s and the OTHER Israel-hating president (Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) plan to “wipe Israel off the map”.
