Biden: Syria is Five Times Bigger Than Libya

Why doesn't the Obama administration intervene in the Syrian revolution, while the country's dictator is slaughtering his own people and the country is a known enemy of the U.S., while the administration chose to do so in Libya  a country that was cooperating with the United States by ending their nuclear program and hunting down terrorists?

According to Biden the answer is one of simple logistics, "Syria is Five Times Bigger Than Libya."

Um... no, it's not.

From the CIA World Factbook:

Lybia: 1,759,540 sq km

Syria:  185,180 sq km

Here comes some of that math Clinton and Obama like...

185,180 divided by 1,759,540 equals .105

So, to make it easy for your Democrats reading this, Syria is NOT five times the size of Libya  it is actual one tenth the size.

In case you were wondering, Iran, the other enemy of the United States whose population tried to rise up against their dictators during Obama's tenure that he chose not to help, is also smaller than Libya totaling 1,648,195 sq km.

And no, Biden wasn't talking about population.  The Obama admin chose interfered in Egypt which has four times the population of Syria and 40 times the population of Libya.

For those keeping count, Obama's aid to people trying to overthrow enemies of the U.S. - 0, Obama's aid to people trying to overthrow friends of the U.S. - 2.

Whose side is this guy supposed to be on again?

i don't think he meant literally five times bigger, but I guess that might be too big for the little brain to understand.
