When it comes to sanctions against Syria, the fire power still finds its way in but the food does not; take a look at how each candidate is doing in Egypt; and Iran can't buy a friend in Lebanon even if they try-- and they have tried
Are sanctions hurting anyone but the civilians who are not engaged in violence in Syria?
